MANCHESTER, ENGLAND – NOVEMBER 24: Robin van Persie of Manchester United is challenged by (L-R) Alejandro Faurlin, Clint Hill and Shaun Derry of Queens Park Rangers during the Barclays Premier League match between Manchester United and Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford on November 24, 2012 in Manchester, England.

On this week’s packed Rant Cast we review Manchester United’s victories over Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United at Old Trafford – occasions on which the Reds did very little to impress but gained valuable points in the Premier League title race.

It was a week in which legends and nostalgia reigned. United supporters celebrated 20 years of Eric Cantona’s signature, while Sir Alex Ferguson’s statute was finally unveiled underneath the eponymously named stand at Old Trafford.

We also talk about Anders Lindegaard’s call for a “gay hero” in professional football – what are the chances of a more progressive view from football fans? Finally, we take your questions, and look ahead to the football in the week ahead!
