Wolfsburg 3 – 2 United

BAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHA (1/-1)   Here’s five things we learned from Europa League qualification: Swan) We couldn’t keep the wolf from the door, so to speak. Twit twoo) Louis van Gaal is a fraud. When I mispronounce stuff I just get laughed at but he seems to have made it into a whole career. Tree-creeper) The whole […]

QPR vs United

QPR vs United

Benno (@Benglorious) Coming off a defeat at home to Southampton last week, it’s easy to understand people’s frustrations starting to boil to the surface.  Van Gaal has, and has had from the start of his tenure, more leeway than the previous manager of Manchester United purely because of his outstanding achievements in the sport.  David […]

CL: United 1 – 1 Bayern Munich

    Tom (@Tom_McGhee): Worst. European. Game. Ever Cowardly tactics, betraying the United tradition. Stone-Age formation. £300K a week for Rooney? Disgraceful gamesmanship. Not that warm. . Ben (Benglorious): Best. European. Game. Ever!!! The tactics were spot on, befitting our underdog status and getting us a tidy result. Moyes’ formation choice was excellent, forcing the […]

CL: United vs Bayern Munich

Ben (Benglorious): Champions League quarter finals, eh?  Whodathunkit after the season we’ve had, eh?  Hang on…  Why are they called ‘quarter finals’ anyway?  Do the matches only last twenty-two and a half minutes or are we only allowed two and three-quarter players on the pitch?  I suppose nobody will ever know. I did some research […]

United vs Liverpool

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 […]

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's defence: I don't want to talk about it.

United’s defence: I don’t want to talk about it.

For a minute back there, I thought we were going to be treated (for treated read: not at all treated) to front row seats as David Moyes’ private fantasy – of running a team with Rio and Vidic at the heart of the defence, no matter what – played out all over our goal difference […]

United vs Villa

United vs Villa

Had to nick this off the Beeb, cus. Villa have been really beyond awful at times this season, but as we found out ourselves, their position in the league speaks little of the actual potential the team possesses. They are scrapping for their lives and I have absolutely no doubt whatever that they will be […]

Our internet friends are always welcome to share some of their ‘Pre and Post Match’ thoughts with us from now on. If you want to share, get in touch! You can still enjoy our nonsensical, confusing, punctuation buffets below their proper good ones… Iwan (@IwanLehnert): Well, that’s the double gone, then. Bugger. Never mind, eh? […]

FAC: Chelsea vs United

FAC: Chelsea vs United

I’m still trying to work out the logistics of watching this game in full: having been very kindly bought a ticket to see Bristol City vs Sheffield Wednesday on the same day (at least I think I’ve had the ticket bought?! I hope they don’t want any money for it. It’s only right that you […]

United 1 - 0 Reading

United 1 – 0 Reading

I didn’t see the game and only saw the highlights on MOTD2, so am in no position to comment. Lucky you. By all accounts Reading made a good fist of it and we were a tad lucky. The most important result of the weekend was at Goodison, so the three points are good enough – […]

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 […]
