United 3 – 1 Crystal Palace

With quite a few members of the squad starting to get back to match sharpness and starting to vie for first team positions I expect the ‘second string’ to put on a real show tonight. Palace can play  a bit on their day and of course are not going to simply roll over…but can’t avoid […]

Case File #1: The Diving Hell and the Footer Spy.

Case File #1: The Diving Hell and the Footer Spy.

He may no longer play for United, but we have managed to get our grubby little hands on the archived, top-secret, investigations he undertook while he was still under our employment…   Raised in the crime capital of Europe, Liverpool. Micky has spent most of his covert investigative career in the underworld of gambling cartels. […]

Gary Speed 1969 – 2011

It remains true that we never quite get over the sorrow caused by losing those most loved, we only learn to live with it, and to live despite it; which – and there is no paradox here – makes living a richer thing. That is sorrow’s gift, though we never covet it. A.C. Grayling (The […]

United 1 - 1 Newcastle

United 1 – 1 Newcastle

SAF I’m sure will be fuming. Terrible decision for the penalty, annoyingly it was a very good tackle by Rio that we should have been raving about. Really happy with the way we are starting to show energy and urgency in our play again. We just need Rooney, Young, Nani and a couple of others […]

United 5 – 3 Newcastle

Got a feeling this is going to be an absolute scorcher… SAF have been in the best of moods after the goings on with the press this week and the squad will know it. Key players have been looking close to form and after the performance against Benfica where the signs were good I reckon we’ll go at […]

United 2 - 2 Benfica

United 2 – 2 Benfica

That’s what happens when you don’t allow a player any time on the pitch…when he gets a chance he doesn’t take it cos he’s not match sharp (Berba obv). Was encouraged in terms of hunger and urgency. Still not playing well, but Carrick, Berba, Young and Valencia again are not match sharp, so can’t be […]

United 1-0 Benfica

Every time I wanted to predict a 1-0 I haven’t done and it’s been 1-0. Now I’m predicting 1-0 and I don’t actually think it will be. Not sure what to expect, hopefully more of the same grinding out for the time being. Goal: Young

Swansea 0 - 1 United

Swansea 0 – 1 United

Well that was a lot more predictable than I thought, actually so predictable I didn’t actually quite predict it. Chicha with a very accomplished tap in and a few flashes of encouragement from just about every player, without getting us too excited. Still maintain all teams have to go through this kind of patch of […]

Swansea 1 – 2 United

I’m not predicting with confidence at the moment. Not really sure how the international break will have affected the team, or for that matter what team we will put out. We should have enough to scrape a win with or without form…It’s what we’re good at. Having Young fit again helps a bit. Goals from […]

Engerlund's irie, I spose.

Engerlund’s irie, I spose.

I stopped sulking just in time to watch both England games this past week after a self imposed exile that stretches back to when the F.A, Capello, or whoever, reinstated John Terry as captain after he’d not actually apologised for all the bad stuff he’d done back in March of this year. I hadn’t missed much in those few […]

United 1 - 0 Sunderland

United 1 – 0 Sunderland

“Happy 25th anniversary Sir Alex. Sorry for calling you that naughty word. Please accept an o.g as an apology”. Wes Brown from the future. That was my tweet just as the game was kicking off. The thing is Wes Brown does get his share of own goals and he would be trying harder than anyone to block […]

United 3 – 0 Sunderland

Woooh! Playing the ex-reserves. Despite not having a bad record against Sunderland I always kind of see them as a bit of a potential problem. However, don’t think they’ve had a great start to the season and haven’t got enough form coming into the game to cause an upset. That’s not to say we have […]
