Not A Rant: My Real Pet Hate: Pet Hates

Not A Rant: My Real Pet Hate: Pet Hates

 “Lying finds champions in those who recognise that without lies people would have no inner privacy, that life might be infected with boredom and despair, and much evil could result.” A.C Grayling, The Meaning of Things, 2001   A week or so ago I flexed my somewhat flaccid blogging community muscle and submitted my ‘Pet […]

You can stick your whistle up your arse

You can stick your whistle up your arse

This article originally appeared in Issue 15 of the Football United Fanzine available to view here    To the foot stomping outrage of some fans, there exists statistical evidence which points to the fact that United don’t concede less, or win more penalties at home than other clubs, so we can finally put the myth that refereeing decisions favour the big clubs […]

United 2 - 0 Swansea

United 2 – 0 Swansea

Hardly entirely convincing, but more than good enough. I’ve run out of things to say really. The problems are the problems. The positives are the positives. Ashley Young is still physically protesting his outrage towards gravity, nice goal though. Thought Chicha was looking sharp in spells. Always nice to see Berba, if only a fleeting […]

United 2 – 1 Swansea

I’m getting really fed up of Mancini’s pretence that he’s given up on the title. In the first instance it wasn’t funny, now the joke that never had a punchline is just excruciating. After his general behaviour recently I was starting to *in hushed tones* actually like him a bit. I particularly enjoyed his gesturing […]

Canvey Island cds, tapes and vinyl: Greg Theoharis

Spurs fan (Boo!) and good  friend of Bifurcated Greg Theoharis (@sofalife) who writes the very impressive Dispatches From a Football Sofa was marking some of his student’s coursework when he heard a gentle tap at the window. As he opened the curtains to take a little look he wasn’t surprised to find the Bifurcated Train, because he’d submitted his […]

Not A Rant: The Sun in ‘exactly the f*ckwitted sort of thing The Sun do’ Shocker

Whether it’s either, as we might imagine, simply the vitriol of knuckle-headed-knuckle-dragging bigots, or the calculated actions of debauched marketing strategists attempting to shift some units – are we really THAT surprised by this virulent nonsense anymore? Pseudo-moralising (usually on Twitter) is entirely ineffectual and only propagates their unflinching malevolence. STOP. F*CKING. BUYING. IT.   They […]

City 1 - 0 United

City 1 – 0 United

(Oh, how foolish of me, I appear to have attached the wrong photo.) For a United team that was, according to SAF, set up to attack, it looked suspiciously like a team doing an impression of a team set up to park the bus. I can go along with SAF’s periodical megalomaniacal team selections, but […]
