Rant Cast 114 – end of season spectaculaaaaar
In the final double-length Rant Cast of the season regulars Ed and Paul look back on Manchester United’s victory over Sunderland, which ultimately proved fruitless as Manchester City stole the Premier League crown in dramatic circumstances.
We offer an all encompassing review of the season, looking at the reasons United didn’t take this year’s title and what Sir Alex Ferguson might do about it in the summer. We ponder what’s next for a legion of United players including Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Anderson, Michael Owen, Dimitar Berbatov, Tom Cleverley, Darren Fletcher, David de Gea, Phil Jones and Paul Pogba!
Also this week: Rant Cast Awards – our best and worst moments of the season, favourite goals, best games and top players. Plus ll your nominations!
We talk Kenny Dalglish as Fenway Sports Group finally fires the veteran Scot from his post in charge of Liverpool, and with United’s Q3 financials out we ask just how have the Glazers spent £71 million on debt repayment in the current financial year.
Europe: Roy Hodgson excludes Rio Ferdinand and Michael Carrick from a thoroughly depressing Euro 2012 squad, and the Champions League final with Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
Finally, in a special end of season bonus we also have interviews with some of our favourite listeners, friends and bloggers….
- Awate Suileman on Paul Scholes
- Sean Birch on beautiful moments
- Doron Salomon on the youth and reserves season
- Tom Pattison on his favourite goal
