Canvey Island Cds, Tapes and Vinyl: Bettina from Berlin

Canvey Island Cds, Tapes and Vinyl: Bettina from Berlin

Friend of Bifurcated and United fan Bettina from Berlin (beebberlin) was in her kitchen, on her laptop, trying  connect to a stream of the United game. When suddenly she noticed that the stream was growing and becoming a river. The river then became a lake. And then the lake became an ocean. The ocean was carrying a […]

LC: Sunderland 2 - 1 United

LC: Sunderland 2 – 1 United

S’pose there’s no real harm in settling for the Charity Shield in your first year in charge. Well done! If we’re laughing at the referees, then someone needs to tell our collective face. There can be no excuse with regards to injuries, because that wouldn’t have been too far off the kind of team Moyes […]

The Promised Land

The Promised Land

In anticipation of this book, and to placate my impatience at not having it in my possession, I read some reviews and soon noted the many instances where the word ‘detail’ came up (seven, as it happens). I became slightly concerned; perhaps detail was code; political internet shorthand for goes on a bit. Turns out detail, meant … detail. This though is not your garden-variety detail, no, this […]

LC: Sunderland vs United

This is the point where I usually do a thing about JOS, or perhaps Wesley, scoring an own goal, but instead this time I’ve just decided to reference doing that as a way of padding out the introduction. I don’t think JOS is fit anyway, and so Wesley is our only hope … he is, […]

FAC: United 1 – 2 Swansea

And so, for really-real this time, no playin’, I’m starting to doubt whether Moyes does have what it takes. Yes, he inherited a team that was insufficiently stocked to compete with those other lot, however, he inherited a squad more than capable of defeating a Swansea side bereft of most (if not all) of its […]

T’would be daft for David Moyes face not to want Manchester United Football Club – the team he manages – to give the F.A Cup (another trophy!!!) a right good go, what with our tradition of wanting to win all the trophies, a tradition he upheld, in fine style, by bagging the Charity Shield early on in his Manchester United Football […]

United 1 - 2 Spurs

United 1 – 2 Spurs

Y’know there’s a saying about going to the well to collect water on more occasions than necessary … that’s aimed specifically at Ashley Young, Danny and Adnan. Can’t help but think with Fergie around less, we’ll get less panalties. Which is probably fairer. Definitely a case for all three of the “diving” talking points going […]

  Will Rooney take time out of his ticking ‘trying to find a new club’ off of his to-do-list/deign to cut short his family Christmas and turn up/recover from his “knock”? No doubt Moyes will try and marry … whoops, I mean play him either way; whether he’s still playing for us or not. Poor Danny. […]
