Red Dead Podcast “Number 8″ – Spanking Arsenal, Hargo’s “Betrayal” and a Silly Liverpool Fan

Welcome to the eigth episode of the Red Dead Podcast, the stupendous Manchester United podcast for Truly Reds, brought to you as always by Tom “Darren Fletcher” Addison and Liam “Wrestlemania” Brown.

This week we analyse United’s cracking performance against l’Arse and bask in the (Red Dead) redemption of our favourite Spanish ‘keeper. We also take a lot at the best of the football from around Europe and, perhaps unfairly, tear into Scottish football a little bit.

We also offer our view on the surprising transfer of Owen Hargreaves to Manchester City, and also rip to shreads an article written by a Liverpool fan, comparing the current United squad with the current Scouse one.

Comments, feedback and questions are greatly appreciated, you can contact us on 

Remember, you can also follow us, and Truly Reds, on Twitter: @TrulyReds @TomRDPodcast and @LiamRDPodcast

Due to the international break we won’t be podcasting for another couple of weeks, but don’t worry! I’m sure we’ll have plenty to discuss for next time, including what Liam’s favourite soup is and how much Tom weighs.

Who United will NOT be meeting in Europe

The European Champions League draw will take place in Monaco within the next 24 hours. UEFA’s rules will see the 32 qualified teams allocated into eight groups of four. Each will contain a top seed, plus one club from the second, third and fourth pots. These are determined by a UEFA ranking system which makes it virtually impossible to work out who exactly Manchester United will be drawn against BUT there are a number of clubs who will definitely be avoided.

Lay off Rooney for his memorable TV quote

DATELINE – Munich, March 30, 2009. A sensational season virtually came to an end for Wayne Rooney as he went down in a heap with an ankle injury seconds from the final whistle at Bayern Munich thus beginning a year made in hell for the golden boy of English football. A disastrous World Cup was soon followed by lurid tabloid headlines, a ‘dream’ marriage clearly on the rocks, lengthy court cases against him and his personal manager, a stunning transfer request which rocked the game and his personal life in total turmoil. The current season went on and on with no apparent relief – until the weekends game at West Ham.

Boffins Reckon United For The Title

Wynn Grant over at the brilliant Football Economy has highlighted some research done by the egg-heads at the Professional Football Players Observatory (no, I hadn’t heard of them either) that believes that, of all the teams in contention for the Premiership title this year, Man United are the most likely ones to be lifting the trophy come the end of the season.
