What's your favourite Scholesy memory?

What’s your favourite Scholesy memory?

Bit of an obvious question really, but we’re a sentimental lot here at Bifurcated towers…

Congratulations Barcelona!

Congratulations Barcelona!

After weeks of personally going over board with predictions of how we were going to beat Barca 3-1 , the final result was hardly a surprising one (You’ve got to think positive, right? Talk a bit of trash? This is your devine right as football fan). Of course it still hurts. Reluctantly in a pub […]

We are Manchester United

We are Manchester United

While it hardly pained me to write from the point of view of Barcelona a few days ago, I certainly found it unnatural. It’s my pleasure now, to rattle off a few reasons why United will prevail on Saturday and why Barca should be quaking in their total-football boots. In an interview with the Guardian […]

What does it all mean?

What does it all mean?

It’s 3:00am Sunday May 29th and Wembley stadium is cloaked in near silence. The floodlights illuminate the night sky as the surrounding streets echo with the glorious hum of exultant crowds. Football’s home is momentarily stirred by the zephyr of nature as a seagull glides down from the morning haze to pitch side. It settles […]

We are Barcelona

We are Barcelona

While discussing features for the CL final, I mentioned to Brett I might like to write from Barca’s point of view. I often wonder what other teams think of United; what threats they will face, what they feel they can exploit. When I read this interview with Xavi, one of my favourite players to watch, […]

United 3 – 1 Barcelona

Yep! You read it right. Come on, nothing in football ever pans out how people expect. However, I tend to be never too far away from almost being somewhere near a similar result as long as you forget about 70% of my predictions, so take it to the bank! As we all have come to […]

United 4 -2 Blackpool

United 4 -2 Blackpool

It’s a shame we had to be the team to consign Blackpool through the Prem trap door, but I still celebrated every goal we scored with no sympathy (Apart from maybe the O.G, ouch). Finally Owen got his goal! I can’t take credit for a great prediction on that one, I’ve been predicting an Owen […]

United 3 – 1 Barcelona

I was going for 2-1, then thought, eff it, we’ll stuff ‘em and pompously made it 3-1, noticing that Brett was backing the same scoreline. Then I went to lunch where I was served by a Spanish Barcelona fan who made the “pah” sound when I told him my prediction. He’s going for 2-1 Barcelona, […]

United 3 – 2 Blackpool

As much as I’d like to see a)VDS keep a clean sheet in his last premier league game and b)Blackpool to stay up, I think this game will fail to deliver on either wish. The team we’ll play, most of which was confirmed by SAF in the press conference, consists of squad players desperate to give the boss a healthy selection headache […]

Rovers 1 - 1 United

Rovers 1 – 1 United

20 minutes in I couldn’t see anything but a comfortable win. Everyone was on their game and I didn’t feel there were many signs of real nerves. Wazza and Chicha were starting to link up in a style reminiscent of Yorkie and Andrew Cole. This is hyper-critical on my part but I do think Little Pea needs […]

Rovers 1 - 1 United

Rovers 1 – 1 United

That such an incredible achievement as 19 league titles was completed in such an undramatic and nervous way was perhaps redolent of our season. But who cares? I mean really, I’m already fed up with reading “Though not a classic Ferguson side, this team..” and “Lacking the glitz and glamour of bygone…” blah blah blah. […]

Rovers 1 – 3 United

Got a very good feeling about this one. How can you not? To be quite honest you’ll soon see I never predict anything but a win (Not arrogant, just better).  I personally find predicting futile and but enjoyable all the same, so predict what I want to happen rather than what I realistically think may. Anyway, […]
