Manchester United travel to Gdansk, Poland to take on La Liga side Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League Final. It'll be a chance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to win his first trophy as manager of the club and an opportunity for the Reds to lift major European silverware for the sixth time in the club's history. There is much to discuss. Hosts Harry Robinson and Jack Tait first talk about the significance of the before they're joined by Jamie Kemble, a British Villarreal fan who offers insight into what is a small-town club with a real family feel to it. Jamie provides some insight into Unai Emery's tactics, the Yellow Submarine's stand-out players, including Pau Torres and Gerard Moreno. After chatting to Jamie, the boys talk about the absence of Harry Maguire, a possible 3-4-3 formation that Ole could deploy and then talk about where they'll be watching the game with tales of airport football.

Three games without a win for Manchester United as the 2020/21 season begins to come to its conclusion. Second place is confirmed, a European final awaits but the true focus of this week is on the return of fans to Old Trafford after 436 days. The return of raw emotion, shared celebrations, of real football. It was amazing to be back. Harry Robinson and Jack Tait discuss a 1-1 draw with Fulham and look ahead to the next week.

Has Solskjaer changed the culture at United? That's what one of our Patrons, Lars, asked this week. In Series 6 Episode 33 of the Manchester United Weekly Podcast, hosts Harry Robinson and Jack Tait answer that question throughout while reviewing a hugely satisfying 3-1 away win against Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester United beat Brighton 2-1 at the weekend and all through goals were scored by graduates of the club's academy. Somehow we forgot to mention that during the episode. We also forgot to talk about Dat Guy Welbz. We don't know. To make up for it, we've mentioned it in the title and the description of the show. Sorry Danny, we still love you! (And Marcus and Mason too, both great finishes!) Hosts Harry Robinson and Jack Tait do talk about loads of other stuff, including Wan-Bissaka, Greenwood's development, United's tempo, van de Beek's movement, Cavani's future and Harry gives you an update on the women's team's progress as well as James Garner who has now scored in consecutive games for Nottingham Forest.

Hosts Harry Robinson and Jack Tait review Manchester United's 3-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. It was an opportunity to follow up an impressive Europa League win in Milan with further Cup progress but it was not an opportunity that United took. Harry gives you the lowdown on the U23s, U18s, women's team and loanees as Garner captains Forest, Stoney rues defeat to Arsenal and Galbraith is sent off.

Manchester United are stuttering through the months of February and March but moved back into the Premier League's top 2 with a 1-0 home win vs West Ham that followed a gutting late draw with AC Milan at home. Hosts Harry Robinson and Jack Tait review those two games, look ahead to the second leg against Milan and provide your regular, extensive youth, loan and women's round-up in the middle of the show.

Manchester United followed up a dreary Wednesday night in South London with a firey start away to rivals Manchester City. Bruno Fernandes put United in front after 2 minutes and the Reds followed it up in the second half with a wonderful goal from Luke Shaw, the club's best player of 2021 and perhaps one of the league's best too. As the sun set on Manchester on Sunday night, the city was red, for a time at least. City are still top of the league, and by some distance, but derby victory provides a boost for confidence, for momentum and for morale going into a tough run of fixtures for a United side who had struggled to create before this 2-0 win at the Etihad. This week on the Manchester United Weekly Podcas with Harry Robinson and Jack Tait, we're reviewing games against City and Palace, discussing the wider context of the recent happenings at United and providing you with an extensive youth, loan and women's round-up. Casey Stoney's side won 3-0 and James Garner received high praise from Chris Hughton. At the end of the show, we looked ahead to games against AC Milan and West Ham before Patrons get a bonus Q&A after we wrap things up in which we'll talk Ole's tactics, Varane and more.

Manchester United are held by Real Sociedad but progress in the Europa League with a tasty tie against AC Milan to follow and then fail to score against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. That result leaves United second in the Premier League and looking down rather than up, one point ahead of Leicester, four ahead of West Ham and six ahead of Chelsea. It's a decent position but it feels like yet another missed opportunity and yet another underwhelming game from a United who have rarely impressed since the turn of the year. In this episode of the Manchester United Weekly Podcast, Harry Robinson and Jack Tait review the Chelsea game, provide you with your regular youth, loan and women's round-up and look ahead to games against Crystal Palace and Manchester City.

As we're teased with the end of lockdown 3 in Britain, Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continue to provide wins to help with the mood. One of those wins was an excellent dispatching of good Spanish side Real Sociedad, played in Turin in the UEFA Europa League. The second was less convincing but no less important, a 3-1 victory against Newcastle which puts United in a great position in the Premier League. Hosts Harry Robinson and Jack Tait are talking both of those games and previewing the second leg against Real Sociedad. As always, there's you extensive youth loan and women's round-up in the middle of the show where Harry talks Isak Hansen-Aaroen, loan moves aplenty and more.

It's a slog of a season. Game after game. After the woeful start in September and October, Manchester United grew to be excellent at winning against the 'bottom 14'. Not anymore. A 1-1 draw to West Brom follows shock defeat to Sheffield United and a draw to Everton and now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will have to do something they've been unable to do in the league this season, beat fellow members of the top six to make up for dropped points. With upcoming games against Chelsea and Manchester City, the opportunity will be there to do so. It's a set-back for United and for Solskjaer, not one that requires an inquisition into the whole team, club and coaching staff, but one which disappoints and frustrates. United were passive at the Hawthorns, in defence and attack, and they left with a point when they deserved little more. Welcome back to the Manchester United Weekly Podcast where the mood can be summed up by a comment sent in by one of our Patrons, Michael Byerts, who said, "is there anything more to be said after that than uggghhhh?" But, there is. A little. We're talking West Brom, West Ham, the FA Cup and in the middle of the show, before a preview of Thursday's Europa League game against Real Sociedad, you'll get your extensive youth, loan and women's round-up. Shola Shoretire and Joe Hugill are amongst the goals again while badge-kissing Charlie McNeill scores four in the Manchester derby. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
