My Winter of Disconnect

My Winter of Disconnect

From an objective point of view, this season football has nudged itself ever closer towards a warped manifestation of utopia. It has lunged violently between menacingly good and astonishingly bad, intermittently grotesque and overtly sentimental. Aesthetes of stats and figures, connoisseurs of footy ‘lols’, perpetuaters of intellectual discourse, bastions of good old fashioned tribalism have all been nourished from […]

In SAF we trust.

In SAF we trust.

Although not exclusive to Fergie, we are often treated – especially on Twitter – to the mildly threatening, popular refrain amongst some United fans of, ‘In SAF we trust’. The  implication is clear: SAF = God; omnipotent and (since 1986) omnipresent. It’s not literal: it’s a football ‘one liner’, in a similar vein to, ‘United, […]

A slightly disjointed thing about Robbo!

A slightly disjointed thing about Robbo!

Before players were introduced to pasta (how fancy pants!) and vitamin shakes (oh, you’re spoiling us) their diet consisted of lager and whiskey chasers and a half-time fag – so the story goes. The games were, thus, slower, as were the players (although no less entertaining) … this was of course, at least in United’s […]

Following on from the Class of '92

Following on from the Class of ’92

Preface: I feel I must preface this post with a note to say that, of course, I would very much welcome an influx of youth to the first team, who wouldn’t, right?!  To utter anything to the contrary flies in the face of our club’s unique history … I really do like kids, I just […]

Scholesy

Scholesy

Despite the avalanche of tributes that have been compiled towards the end of his career, it feels like the rest of Europe and The World, for the most part, were keeping their unadulterated admiration for Scholesy a bit of a secret. Possibly enjoying a jolly good chuckle amongst themselves as our national team insisted on […]

Saving private Ryan thoughts...

Saving private Ryan thoughts…

I have a confession to make, I’m not proud of it and if I’m honest I think I’m a bit scared about the ramifications of putting it down on paper. I’m anxious about giving it flesh, giving it a physical reality where previously it’s only resided in the deepest, darkest recesses of my simple brain. […]

What does it all mean?

What does it all mean?

It’s 3:00am Sunday May 29th and Wembley stadium is cloaked in near silence. The floodlights illuminate the night sky as the surrounding streets echo with the glorious hum of exultant crowds. Football’s home is momentarily stirred by the zephyr of nature as a seagull glides down from the morning haze to pitch side. It settles […]

United 4 -2 Blackpool

United 4 -2 Blackpool

It’s a shame we had to be the team to consign Blackpool through the Prem trap door, but I still celebrated every goal we scored with no sympathy (Apart from maybe the O.G, ouch). Finally Owen got his goal! I can’t take credit for a great prediction on that one, I’ve been predicting an Owen […]

Rovers 1 - 1 United

Rovers 1 – 1 United

20 minutes in I couldn’t see anything but a comfortable win. Everyone was on their game and I didn’t feel there were many signs of real nerves. Wazza and Chicha were starting to link up in a style reminiscent of Yorkie and Andrew Cole. This is hyper-critical on my part but I do think Little Pea needs […]

Rovers 1 - 1 United

Rovers 1 – 1 United

That such an incredible achievement as 19 league titles was completed in such an undramatic and nervous way was perhaps redolent of our season. But who cares? I mean really, I’m already fed up with reading “Though not a classic Ferguson side, this team..” and “Lacking the glitz and glamour of bygone…” blah blah blah. […]

I am a Biased Pervert

I am a Biased Pervert

I am a Biased Pervert. Okay, so far off to a bad start. I am perhaps in need of a crash course in the science of self–enunciation, but please bear with me. I intend to ingratiate myself with you in the future and for this I will mostly be using the other distinguishing characteristics I […]
