Ep 121: Shock in Switzerland after Cristiano Ronaldo party

The atmosphere at Old Trafford was something else on Saturday for Cristiano Ronaldo’s homecoming, so Dale is joined by two guests to talk about the 4-1 win over Newcastle United and the drab 2-1 defeat away to Young Boys.

Brian Murphy and Shaun Connolly give their thoughts immediately after the final whistle in Switzerland, and we’ll have a separate podcast later this week with Daniel Nardiello to get his usual insight as a former academy graduate at Manchester United.

It went very wrong against Young Boys but, despite what you see across social media, nobody on this podcast is calling for the manager’s head. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is doing a good job, but he needs to do a great job.

Expectations are as high as they could be even after a hiccup in the Champions League – because that’s what we believe it is… rather than a repeat of last year’s campaign, when United crashed into the Europa League.

Europa League Varane doesn’t quite have the same ring to it!

Put your feet up or prepare for your commute either to work or home, and enjoy the latest ramblings on the Strettycast. The podcast can be listened to on Apple Podcasts, Acast or Spotify.
