Nik is joined by Colm and Jamie to reflect on our barnstorming revival at Southampton.

Finally Jamie, having missed the previous episode, grasps a tenuous opportunity to channel Rabbie Burns himself by waxing lyrical about United's own Flower of Scotland.
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. They also discuss Martial v Cavani, VAR v reality and Pogba v Pogba (club versus country) before looking ahead to our return fixture with Istanbul Basaksehir and our upcoming 'top four six-pointer' against Southampton.
David, Imran and Jamie sit down to discuss United's hard fought 3-1 over Everton.

Red Bull gives Ole's United wings as a masterclass from the boss results in a 5-0 win against David's hero Nagelsmann. Nik, Alex and David discuss Ole being back at the wheel, the fantastic performance from one Marcus Rashford and wonder if Julian's dresswear played a part in the final scoreline.
Nik, David and Alex discuss the absolute bore fest that was Chelsea against 'Lamp it' Lampard and have a sneak peak at the game against RB Leipzig.
This week, Jamie, Colm Alex talk through United's opening champions league performance in Paris. Rather than the usual podcast format, we take a little longer and indulge by talking through each of the players. It only seems fair after such a strong collective performance from the boys. Was it a smash n grab, plucky underdog win or a masterclass from Ole? And who was MOTM?
Nik is joined by Ashwin, Raees and Jamie as United get back to winning ways at St James' Park.

The longest football season in recorded history is finally over. Ed is joined by Ashwin and Jamie to reflect on the bitter end, our Europa League semi final defeat to Sevilla, and how this season measured up given our expectations way back in August last year. The lads also dust off their finest suits and hand out a few player awards.
Colm, Ed and Ashwin dissect the formality that was United's Europa League second leg with LASK and look forward to the upcoming mini-tournament in Cologne, starting with our quarter final tie with FC Copenhagen. The lads discuss the status of a few fringe players and Ashwin shares his admiration for Lingard after his two-goal turnaround in form.
With the league season finally complete David, Colm and Jamie turn their attention to the summer transfer window. The team will surely need one or two quality signings if United are to compete on all fronts next year, so the lads assess the areas we most need to strengthen and discuss some of the names doing the rounds in the media. Also Colm calls Friday 7th August as the day Sancho will become a United player and reveals the formula he used to make the prediction exclusively on the podcast!

Nik, Colm and debutant Jamie go over a mixed week of results at the end of a great run, which has seen us bow out of the FA Cup at the semi final stage but remain on course to sneak into the top four.

Colm and David reflect on our 3-0 victory over Villa, correctly interpreting our passing of an obscure Premier League milestone as proof of our global footballing supremacy.

Nik and Colm sit down to discuss our thumping win against Bournemouth, including the great attacking play from Bruno and our Three Ms as well as the ropey defending from those who should know better. There's also time for speculation about the future for our centre back pairing and of course the enigmatic Pogba.
This week, founding fathers Colm and Alex take a look back on one exceptional hattrick for Martial against Sheffield United before turning to the FA Cup Quarter Final result.
