FAC: Preston NE vs United

FAC: Preston NE vs United

Special Guest PNE Fan Hanna (@Hannamayj) DIRECTIONS (Assuming no Red has ever been further north than Bolton before) : Go north up the M6 for 30 miles and exit at the Tickled Trout, or Junction 31 to non-Prestonians (we had a town meeting to decide the naming of all major junctions. Probably. Either way, that’s […]

United vs QPR

United vs QPR

  Benno (@Benglorious): I’m not going to lie, it’s been a couple of emotionally-charged weeks in the Glorious household.  I imagine United’s transfer shenanigans have also left both of you not knowing whether to dance with joy or sob your eyes out.  Not just tears but proper chest-heaving cries and loads of snot running into […]

Sunderland vs United

  Ben (Benglorious): Second game of the season today and my username and password for this site still haven’t been revoked.  In light of this, I’ve decided that I’m going to up my game in the preview stakes and finally put my name on the Top Red map.  Not today, though. After last week’s 1-0 […]

United 2013/14 Season Review

Benno (@Benglorious):   The Bobbins:  A Tale of Trying King Alexander had ruled Traffordonia for nearly thirty years.  He was much respected by his enemies and beloved by his people because during his reign the kingdom had flourished, and was the envy of the whole world.  Alexander knew that his time as king was coming […]

United 4 - 0 Norwich

United 4 – 0 Norwich

Whoever the new Louis van Gaal is, I really hope they make Giggsy their number two. The Moyes toll taken on the players was visibly lifted and, well, it’s obvious why. Keeping Scholesy and Bicky Nutt involved in some capacity would again serve the new Louis van Gaal very well – whoever the board choose […]

CL: Bayern Munich (1) vs (1) United

  Ben (Benglorious): It’s here at last.  The big one I’ve been waiting for.  It’s been over a week since I last glued my eyes to something of such importance and intensity.  In the meantime, I’ve had to settle for the non-match of a comfortable win against one of the other Uniteds (I forget which). […]

. Tom (@Tom_McGhee): . Literally typing this on a phone, as I drive a 7.5 tonne lorry. It’s not ideal. If only I’d had a few spare days to prepare something better… Prediction: Going to go with 3-1 United if for no other reason that I’m trying to be more optimistic for the new year […]

Tom (@Tom_McGhee): Crisis averted, I’m back (it can’t have escaped anyone’s notice that our season has dipped dramatically since I went on sabbatical). I’ll be honest, I was hoping that my return would coincide with a decisive victory against Everton but since that’s clearly not going to happen, it might as well be now*. Anyways, […]

Thomas Cooked?

Thomas Cooked?

Tom Cleverley is fertile ground for cynics, and it would be reasonable to assert that he’s invited this upon himself in apparently choosing to embrace narcissism where authenticity would have served him better. Cynics are, after all, hopeless romantics with cripplingly high moral and ethical (and mostly hypocritical) standards, that the modern footballer couldn’t possibly […]

United's Midfield: Needing Something Other

United’s Midfield: Needing Something Other

For the past one hundred summers (or thereabouts), the transfer window for United fans has played out like a clever analogy for unparalleled frustration; with nothing remotely central-midfieldy to celebrate. But for a club who supposedly don’t have, haven’t had, or even seemingly got all that close to buying, any one of the best central […]

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 […]
