FAC: Chelsea vs United

FAC: Chelsea vs United

I’m still trying to work out the logistics of watching this game in full: having been very kindly bought a ticket to see Bristol City vs Sheffield Wednesday on the same day (at least I think I’ve had the ticket bought?! I hope they don’t want any money for it. It’s only right that you […]

For Beautifully Red: Reinventing the Heel

This was written for Beautifully Red, the United site dedicated to cataloguing the beautiful moments that might normally pass us by… These days in the Prem, when the ball flashes across the box a little behind the striker after an over-cooked cut back, or perhaps as the result of the attacking player mistiming their run towards the near […]

Our internet friends are always welcome to share some of their ‘Pre and Post Match’ thoughts with us from now on. If you want to share, get in touch! You can still enjoy my nonsensical, confusing, punctuation buffets below their proper good ones… Juan: (@theredinsider) Manchester United Supporters Love Drama The Red Devils are on […]

Not a Rant: Engage

Not a Rant: Engage

Or, perhaps a rant within ‘not a rant’… In the pub, at half-time that other Tuesday, I returned to my seat after a visit to the bar to find that three twenty-somethings had materialised. I hadn’t gone out of my way to notice them, it’s just that in a relatively large room with literally no-one else in it, they had decided […]

United 1 - 0 Reading

United 1 – 0 Reading

I didn’t see the game and only saw the highlights on MOTD2, so am in no position to comment. Lucky you. By all accounts Reading made a good fist of it and we were a tad lucky. The most important result of the weekend was at Goodison, so the three points are good enough – […]

United vs Reading

United vs Reading

How many times do we have to play Reading in a season? Have we entered a parallel Universe, whereby we’re actually in the Scottish Prem? We must have played Reading at least eleventy million times already. As I’ve said before I don’t have any time for Reading, which is handy, cus I can copy and […]

Canvey Island cds, tapes and vinyl: Angela Hallmark

Good friend of Bifurcated Angela Hallmark (@whitepele10) was putting the finishing touches to her OaRtVP submission, when the Grazia magazine on the table next to her flicked open and the pages began to fan quickly, before it flew off the table! Before she could work out what was the hell was going on, the Bifurcated Train appeared (The budget […]

FAC: United 2 - 2 Chelsea

FAC: United 2 – 2 Chelsea

To say we looked really, really, really, really tired would be a massive understatement (albeit in an overstated way). The two early goals were like a band-aid, covering the emotional and physical scars from Tuesday … and we almost got away with it. Carrick and Cleverley were lively to begin with and I thought Carrick […]

FAC: United vs Chelsea

  Brett: I’m still not ready for football. I think I’m a bit broken. Chelsea are not playing well enough to beat us, or even be considered a threat. Yes, undoubtedly they are capable “on their day”, but who isn’t. Who knows, maybe the trip to Old Trafford will provide them with some much needed […]

United 1 - 2 Real

As the pub finally cleared on Tuesday, the Jukebox came on to this: all I could think of was the bit in Shaun of the Dead, “Aaaaaw! Who put this on?” asks Ed, to which Shaun replies through his tears, “It’s on random!” . . .
