Misnomers, Misdemeanors, EPL, O.T: Get Ur Freak On

Oi! Everything! Yeah, you Everything, I’m talking to you … pipe down at the back Something Else and you, Another Thing.  Put your hand down, this isn’t an open forum, or ruddy show and tell.  Look , Everything just stop happening for a one lousy second … thank you. Okay, now, I was doing this introduction to this post that […]

The Young One...

The Young One…

Some players need a club that matches their playing ethos to reach the pinnacle of their footballing powers, but more, they need a club that matches their ambition and ego before they really flourish. A recent example of this being Eric, who although was very good at Leeds, took his individual performance level to somewhere […]

Very superstitious? Pants, prayers & pullovers.

Very superstitious? Pants, prayers & pullovers.

My United wrist-band (worn as a pseudo-tribute to Hargo), my United footy socks, my retro 80’s United cap and my awkwardly ill-fitting red jumper cut a clumsy path to my bed. I imagined I must have petulantly shrugged them off about 11 hours earlier. The scene complete with shoes on my cat’s bed suggested my […]

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. […]

Congratulations Barcelona!

Congratulations Barcelona!

After weeks of personally going over board with predictions of how we were going to beat Barca 3-1 , the final result was hardly a surprising one (You’ve got to think positive, right? Talk a bit of trash? This is your devine right as football fan). Of course it still hurts. Reluctantly in a pub […]

We are Manchester United

We are Manchester United

While it hardly pained me to write from the point of view of Barcelona a few days ago, I certainly found it unnatural. It’s my pleasure now, to rattle off a few reasons why United will prevail on Saturday and why Barca should be quaking in their total-football boots. In an interview with the Guardian […]

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 […]

We are Barcelona

We are Barcelona

While discussing features for the CL final, I mentioned to Brett I might like to write from Barca’s point of view. I often wonder what other teams think of United; what threats they will face, what they feel they can exploit. When I read this interview with Xavi, one of my favourite players to watch, […]

United 3 – 1 Barcelona

Yep! You read it right. Come on, nothing in football ever pans out how people expect. However, I tend to be never too far away from almost being somewhere near a similar result as long as you forget about 70% of my predictions, so take it to the bank! As we all have come to […]

United 3 – 1 Barcelona

I was going for 2-1, then thought, eff it, we’ll stuff ‘em and pompously made it 3-1, noticing that Brett was backing the same scoreline. Then I went to lunch where I was served by a Spanish Barcelona fan who made the “pah” sound when I told him my prediction. He’s going for 2-1 Barcelona, […]

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 […]
