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 vs Liverpool

  Liverpool Rob: Usually I steer well clear of Brett’s advances around this peculiarity in the football calendar. If he gets hold of me he asks me out on a date to watch the match, because, well, we’re friends and it doesn’t matter who wins (or loses). This year I’m happy to put that theory […]

LC: Stoke 0 - 2 United

LC: Stoke 0 – 2 United

All hail: Young Ashley’s goal; Patrice’s goal; Fletch getting more minutes and promising he’s all better; Rooney being out and giving Danny a chance; the result. I’ve run out of things to hail. Bored now. Potentially a nice little run of fixtures over the next couple of weeks. Who’d bet against us being in the […]

Spurs vs United

I was thinking: why don’t we try something crazEE this week, hey?! Go with me here guys … Why don’t we play Kags, right, Kags, yeah … in the hole, and I don’t know, try and WIN a game. As opposed to not playing Kags in the hole and losing a game. Just an idea. […]

I Was Thinking: Is It Ever Just About Football?

I Was Thinking: Is It Ever Just About Football?

I was thinking about an adage that I like: “the problem with going on holiday in order to ‘get away from it all’, is that you take yourself with you.” This is pertinent when we think about football, as football is something we mostly like to think of as an ‘escape’. I was thinking about […]

United 1 - 0 Arsenal

United 1 – 0 Arsenal

And without Danny. Arsenal should really consider themselves very very very very very very lucky. Phil ‘Jonesy’ Jones takes a lot of credit from this game, and rightly so – he was really strong, in both midfield and defence (I’m really luke-warming to the idea of him in midfield). Evans too. But also crucial, I […]

CL: United 4 - 2 Bayer Leverkusen

CL: United 4 – 2 Bayer Leverkusen

Where to start?   .                                . Here will do … let’s get some stuff said: I’ve skipped second-base with Fellaini and am already at third – he might be the answer y’know. Him and Carrick in midfield, P-A-S-S-I-N-G. Chris Smalling looked on it, and some, at right back – which was possibly a knock on […]

. Rob (our Liverpool fan contributor): My ‘Pool wish list for last season: A winning mentality. Tick. A determination to improve. Tick. To defeat Utd.  Negative. Wish list for this season: To compete for a Champions League place. To be exciting to watch. To defeat Utd.  I have watched two Utd friendlies plus the opening Premier […]

Stoke vs United

Stoke vs United

How would it feel if City were to catch us? Can you picture that in your mind’s eye? It’s nigh on ridiculous to entertain it, even for a second, but this game is so much more important than a glance down the fixture list a couple of weeks ago would have presented it as. Stoke […]
