Imran, Colm and Jamie get together minutes after the final whistle at Anfield to discuss the much anticipated top of the table clash.

They also put some respect on Luke Shaw's name, praise the defence in general, criticise our overall play, and discuss the fact that United still haven't beaten a top 6 side yet this season. And if all that wasn't enough, they also have an Imran's Stupid Game that's so stupid, it might just retire the format.
This episode sees our dynamic duo of Nik and Ashwin discuss a league topping win over Burnley. In the match analysis the pair discuss our wealth of midfield options, Pogba's regeneration, how Harry was robbed by VAR, that the ref in not a Friend and Bailly's rebirth.

There is also much praise for Ole's management and tactics. Hope you enjoy the episode!
It's a two man pod this week as Nik is joined by Ashwin to discuss yet another semi-final exit for Ole's men. They mull over our attacking worries, the progress we've made over our last semi-final exit to City and then go on a bit of a tangent in attempt to solve racism (they don't)

They also touch on the Wolves game, our title chances and finish off with a not-so-stupid Imran's Stupid Game.
Analysis of the Leicester City draw and Everton win plus a look ahead to our New Year fixtures

Nik, Colm and Raees evaluate United's first home win of the season. It was a drab affair, our opponents West Brom should rightly feel aggrieved with a VAR decision or two and we needed yet another (retaken) penalty to make the difference but the boys are happy enough with the three points.

This week, Jamie, Colm Alex talk through United's opening champions league performance in Paris.

Nik is joined by Ashwin, Raees and Jamie as United get back to winning ways at St James' Park.
