Podcast 319: Ralf Rangnickering

by | Dec 2, 2021

This week’s Twohundredpercent Podcast focuses on the new arrival at Manchester United, Germany’s intellectual powerhouse coach Ralf Rangnick. But what do your heroes – or indeed anyone else in Britain – know about this international man of mystery? Very little, it turns out. Nevertheless, it’s a gap in all our knowledge that seemingly eats an hour of your lifetime.

After a weekend in which Roy Keane and Jamie Carragher had a circular argument in which both men were simultaneously right and wrong, Edward and Ian bicker fruitlessly and ultimately discover nothing about Ralf Rangnick or each other. Or Jamie Vardy, as it turns out. Although we are able to explain why a Whitehawk game in 2016 missed out on a nice round attendance figure of 320, which will potentially be a help to someone. And Edward’s extreme vexation at the Little England mentality demonstrated by Paul Merson (amongst others) surprises and delights his colleague to such an extent that he takes a deliberately contrarian viewpoint simply to entertain himself.

Whether or not it entertains you is yet to be seen. But by gar, like a Ole Gunnar Solskjaer-lookalike sex dwarf, we tried. If you’d like to get in touch with us you can find us on Twitter (@twoht/@200percentpod) or by emailing twohundredpercentpodcast at gmail dot com.
