Beyond The Pitch and Stretford-End.com have come together once again to record another podcast, the sixh in the series. We look back at the disappointing result against City; discuss where the club needs to go from here; round up the Reserves and Academy news; as well wonder whether Newcastle will do us any favours.
Looking back at City
Where did it all go wrong? The starting team arguably wasn’t right and it was met by the cautiousness of Sir Alex Ferguson. The failure to defend a simple set piece near halftime was disappointingly the difference despite how both sides set up. Perhaps Mancini got it right though, most reflected in the fact that United have only recorded four points in the last four matches whilst City have been playing carefree.
Where to now?
Questions from Facebook and Twitter all asked roughly the same thing – what should the club do now? Clearly United have been somewhat restricted by the Glazer ownership but surely the gaping midfield hole will need some attention this summer, albeit a few summers too late. As a fan, if you oppose the Glazer ownership and want to protest, what can you do?
Reserves and Academy
There’s a strong chance the Reserves could pick up four pieces of silverware this calendar year – find out which final is the latest one they’ve reached. Meanwhile, at Academy level, Andreas Pereira’s work permit has finally come through and he was able to make his debut away at Everton.
The last couple of weeks
With just two rounds of fixtures left in the league, will City hold out or might they slip up at Newcastle? There’s no doubt about the fact that relying on another team to potentially give you a chance of winning the league is a somewhat flat feeling.
We’ve answered some of your questions from Facebook and Twitter – keep them coming in for next week so we can give you a shout-out and answer a few more.
