    A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. On today's Manchester United Weekly Podcast, host Harry Robinson reviews an impressively comfortable 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest. The incessant drumming rain weighing down Old Trafford was hardly festive, but it's a second good win on the bounce since the return to club football. It's a particularly tricky time to record a football podcast, because fixtures are relentless, and gaps in the schedule are very few, as well as time to find with family commitments, so it's just Harry again this week, without regular co-host Jack Tait, with a brief review of the Forest victory, and some thoughts on Cody Gakpo's transfer to Liverpool. In the background is noise from Old Trafford, from 20 minutes before kick-off through to Rashford and Martial's first-half goals, hopefully it can give those of you who can't make it to games regularly a little taste of home.

    September draws to a close and here comes October 2022, genuinely one of the busiest months in the 120-year history of Manchester United. Nine games to come in the Premier League, UEFA Europa League and EFL Cup. First up, Manchester City at the Etihad in the 2pm Sunday kick-off.Today on the show, we're previewing Sunday's match against City with the significant helping hand of Michael Plant, journalist at Manchester World who covers the clubs from both M16 and M11.Michael will give us his insight into how Erik ten Hag's first few months at United have progressed and tell us whether he's seen any teams this season manage to nullify Erling Haaland, who has monstrously racked up the goals for our local rivals so far.Later in the show, Harry Robinson is joined as always by cohost Jack Tait to talk about the game in further detail as we decide on our starting XIs, tactics and look ahead to this nine-game month of October. There'll also be a youth and women's round-up midway through the show. Enjoy! Get bonus content on Patreon Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
