Episode 1348: Solskjaer Knows His Place, Mike Phelan Pop, Hugh Cahill On Winners, Festive Cheer with US Murph, Jose Bonaparte
Ken thinks Solskjaer will be welcomed by Man United fans as the leader to help them over their recent trauma. Crucially, the baby faced assassin is the player who gave them their greatest moment of all; a loyal servant who knew, and still knows, his place in the hierarchy.

There comes a time in every independent, member-led, commercials-free podcast company’s life when they must embrace the spirit of the season… and that time is today. We haven’t spoken to US Murph since his departure from a Dublin hostelry in the early hours of last Sunday morning week – he gives us his Christmas message live from Mill Valley, California.
Another December trip to Dublin, another great night with @SecondCaptains. Backstage with @phlaimeaux, field hockey star Nikki Evans, rugby coach/analyst Matt Williams and the SC Army at the pub after. Homeward bound. Thanks, boys! pic.twitter.com/170ol6Wvma

We talk to Dunphy wrangler Hugh Cahill on the release of his lovely horse-racing book “Winners”, as well as reflecting on the good ol’ days in Newstalk, and what it was like commentating on Ireland/New Zealand, knowing his words would be intimately connected with that win for ever-more.
A must for every racing fan. A great insight into some of racing’s finest moments ???????? #greatread @hughcahill7 pic.twitter.com/tz7RhGCYJ9

Plus there’s Mike Phelan bald-ism, Napoloen Bonaparte’s height, and Arsene Wenger as dashingly handsome 19th century arse-out-of-his-trousers baron, and tipping a dead horse.
