United 2013/14 Season Review

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 3 - 1 Hull

United 3 – 1 Hull

Didn’t I tell you I wasn’t saying anything else about football this season? Well, what are you here for then?! If I was going to say anything it would be about Yourmanja Vidic but I’ve got an article to write on him for someone else more important than myself (doesn’t really narrow it down); and […]

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 […]

  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 […]

Spurs 2 - 2 United

Spurs 2 – 2 United

While hardly pulling up trees (see above illustration – slick, right?! NO?! What would you know anyway?!) Rooney is at the very least useful for now. He’s all style over substance and substance over style, without being either substantially stylish or stylishly substantial enough. (Took the words right out of your mouth, right? NO?! etc…) […]

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 […]

We’re inviting our Twitter friends, and now resident thought sharer Iwan Lehnert, 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 my nonsensical, confusing, punctuation buffets below their proper good ones… Iwan (@IwanLehnert):   Before I begin, […]

Spurs 1 - 1 United

Spurs 1 – 1 United

It’s nice to steal two points. It reminded me of the days of Eric, up until they scored … RVP is already, to my mind, creeping closer towards that bracket (I maybe drunk off admiration for him – ask me again in a couple of days). MOTD2 were poor in their assessment of this game. […]

Spurs vs United

Spurs vs United

There’s a lot of talk of Spurs doing the double over us which, in spite of my usual positive – never predicting a loss – outlook, I have to reluctantly admit wouldn’t be all together surprising. Both teams have come a relatively long way since the earlier game at Old Trafford, in which “we ran […]

FAC: West Ham 2 - 2 United

FAC: West Ham 2 – 2 United

We’re a weird and fickle bunch aren’t we? and by ‘we’, I don’t mean ‘us’, I mean ‘you lot’, not ‘me’. The point I was making in my pre-match thing-me-bob rang true. Fans want everything, all the time and they’re not happy unless they’ve got it, unless they win in the last minute. When they’ve […]
