Case File #7 (continued): The Spy Who Shafted Me

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… At Manchester United, without having regular football as a distraction, Micky Owen was encouraged to develop his detective skills. Under the watchful eye of his spirit […]

Looking for Eric (2009)

Looking for Eric (2009)

It’s got Eric in it, which – as happened at United – almost makes everything else that follows an anti-climax, and though having Eric in it is enough (for me and I guess most other United fans), having Eric Cantona the actor playing the part of Eric sadly (for me at least) isn’t. I should […]

Friend of Bifurcated and United fan Iwan Lehnert (@IwanLehnert) who writes his own footy blog Lines and Lines of Whatever alongside sister blog for music reviews Small World Reviews was deciding whether to settle down with a book or flick on the PS3, when he was  disturbed by a menacing tap at the window.

Rant to self: No more missing the war

Rant to self: No more missing the war

  A few weeks before the Euros, maybe more, I read an article by Owen Jones in The Independent entitled, “The battle that men who aren’t sexist must fight”. It resonated with me, so much so that I was in instantly compelled to write this (in hindsight, incredibly cringe-worthy) message to the author… I just […]

By a click of Paint: A real life grown up exhibition

This week Bifurcated.co.uk has emerged from the backwaters of the Internet and taken up temporary residence in a real life Arts Space. Yes, you heard right – we’re inflicting some of this stuff on the unsuspecting public. If you haven’t stalked me here yet, or more likely don’t have the inclination to, you might not know that I’m an artist. […]

Friend of Bifurcated and United fan Paul Ansorge (@UtdRantcast) – of website United Rant, and the superb United Rant Cast podcast fame – had taken a break from recording to contemplate his connection with the Universe and that. He’d only just stepped outside when his momentary peace was shattered by the incessant hum of impending doom.

United fan and friend of Bifurcated Pauline was (@juliefa2) outside watching Harvey, her cat, stalking a cheeky little sparrow, when what felt like the rumbling of thunder startled them both. There was no storm heading her way though, no … That noise was the Bifurcated Train! The conductor jumped form the carriage and crawled on his hands […]

Dare to dream

Dare to dream

England haven’t won a tournament, again. A concept we have become more than accustomed to dealing with. It still hurts a little/a lot/unbearably (delete as appropriate) and leaves a haunting feeling of, ‘what if?’ drifting through our idle thoughts for the remainder of the summer, but by now we all have our various coping mechanisms […]
