How does this season improve at this point?
The sign in the away end at Villa Park on Saturday evening, alongside the on-pitch performance, summed things up for Manchester United. It read ‘Broken and Rotten from Top to Bottom’ and it’s hard to argue.
Ralf Rangnick’s side are bewilderingly inconsistent and disjointed during the games, but there’s also evidence of a huge disconnect growing off the pitch.
The morning after the 2-2 draw with Aston Villa, Simon and Matt worked up the willpower to talk about United throwing away a two-goal lead, Ronaldo’s interview, the Rangnick/Martial drama plus all the other uncertainty floating around the club right now.
Going against our natural outlooks, it’s not the upbeat chat. You can blame Manchester United Football Club for that!
