    #522. Michael Carrick's reign as interim interim United manager is (probably) over. Two games, no defeats, a couple of backs-to-the-wall performances that weren't pretty, but were needed in the context of a disastrous period. Ed & Paul look back on victory in Villareal, a draw at Chelsea and ahead to games against Arsenal and Crystal Palace. Then there's a long discussion about the impending arrival of Ralf Rangnick on a six-month contract as interim manager with another two years in what could be a powerful consultancy role.No Question About That is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, YouTube, Amazon Music and all good podcast apps.
