The story goes that we found this tape in a skip around the back of the F.A’s headquarters.  

Villa 2 - 3 United

Villa 2 – 3 United

As GNev said on Twitter “you just knew”. There’s a dichotomy of sorts with regards to how United (especially this season) go about winning games. We would all love it if we could keep it tight at the back and dominate games in a technically and tactically preficient way, but don’t you just love the drama and […]

Villa vs United

I’d just done a fairly long prediction thingy and then my ‘puter crashed and nothing saved, so I’m pulling a diva strop and not bothering to do another one. I said something about hoping Jonny was fit, but happy Smalling is available, and something about wanting to find out a bit more about the situation […]

Braga 1 - 3 United

Braga 1 – 3 United

Was lovely to see Rooney celebrating his best mate (and 5-a-side team captain) Obama’s news, in style, by “dispatching” a very valuable penalty. Not to put a dampener on it (that sentence introduction is only heading one way) BUT still not confident in his penalty taking and would much rather ORVP was handed the task. We weren’t great […]

There’s a Ryan Giggs I know – and one I don’t.

Okay, okay that’s the last time I’ll use the KA-POWELL picture as the header for one of these prediction posts – unless he does actually score, of course. Then I guess that buys me at least another five posts, right?! Good. Got a feeling Nick Powell will play – after making the bench against Arsenal […]

Canvey Island cds, tape and vinyl: US Election Special

Canvey Island cds, tape and vinyl: US Election Special

To mark the US Presidential Election we’re inviting Barack Obama (in the interest of impartiality we won’t say ‘Yay!’) and Mitt Romney (in the interest of impartiality we won’t say ‘Boo!’) aboard The Bifurcated Train, as members of our Canvey Island Family share some of the political songs that mean the most to them. The […]

United 2 - 1 Arsenal

United 2 – 1 Arsenal

Football’s weird isn’t it? I mean, who’d have thought RVP would be scoring for US in this fixture this season? Weird and wonderful. My silly non-prediction of a repeat of the 8-2 scoreline form last year, as it turns out, wasn’t too far from the reality. I thought Arsenal were guilty of approaching the game with a similar ‘psychosis’ […]

Sexism - Warning! Contains Very Strong Language

Sexism – Warning! Contains Very Strong Language

This post was written with grateful contributions from Laura Bates of the Everyday Sexism Project. The project exists ‘to catalogue instances of sexism experienced by women on a day to day basis’. Laura’s contributions are italicised. A little while back, I was watching a conversation unfold on Twitter between two relatively respected football bloggers.  The […]

We’re inviting some of our Twitter friends to share some of their ‘Pre’ and ‘Post Match’ thoughts with us from now on. You can still enjoy my nonsensical, confusing punctuation buffets, below their personal views on the game… Iwan: (@Iwanlehnert) Getting knocked out of any competition is never nice. For all the good it did […]

LC: Chelsea 5 - 4 United

LC: Chelsea 5 – 4 United

Well, the residual tensions from Sunday were all but consigned to the distant memory banks by the sheer amazingness of this game. Unfortunately, claims of comments aimed at Danny will again elbow their way way into the headlines – as has to happen if football is taking tackling racism seriously. The game… After Giggsy’s outrageous (in a bad way) display against […]
