THIS POST WAS WRITTEN ABOUT A WEEK AGO AND CERTAINLY BEFORE THE WONDERFUL VICTORY OVER THE FAR TOO SMUG ARSENAL! I’m not a good loser, I fucking hate it, it’s that simple but I am a pretty good winner I think. I don’t really gloat, out loud, or violently abuse the losing side, during the … Continue reading The state of the Manchester United nation . . .
I wrote an article a while ago at a low point in Manchester United’s rather illustrious recent history. I wrote it because I believed that a team I have watched and supported for 20 years was not playing to the clubs expectations. They were not giving what I expect players of a club like this … Continue reading We are Manchester United – for the highs & the lows!
Right at the beginning of the 90s I started supporting Manchester United. Probably not for any other reason than I was just a kid and my older brother who I worshipped supported them. I guess I was lucky that I started watching them at the beginning of dynasty, it could quite easily have been Liverpool … Continue reading My MANCHESTER UNITED . . .
Let me first say how outrageously excited I am for the new season!! Suffice to say I think I was the first person to order the new home kit and have placed and order for the away kit! I even went to go watch United’s C team in action in Shanghai just to warm up … Continue reading The UNITED preview . . .
I love sport, all kinds of sport, no matter how stupid, useless or irrelevant it may seem I love them all (well except South African cricket but that’s a whole other story). Each sport represents some kind of way for humans to excel, push themselves and achieve. It is the greatest teacher of life lessons … Continue reading United vs City and why sport is the greatest teacher of all . . .
The week before the Reds take the field against Barcelona on Saturday night they have released their new home kit for the 2011/2012 season. My view personally – nice, simple, classy and modern but then again they could play in clown suits and i would still support them firstly and second would buy the replica … Continue reading United gets new gear!
As you know we are keen United men so find this of interest. AIG robbed the world and then went bust so don’t have sufficient funds (surprise surprise!!) to continue to sponsor UNITED. To fill their shoes are AON! Hmm, sounds like a similar player with a different name? Fortunately they aren’t and if they have … Continue reading United has a new sponsor (and the locals are taking it seriously)!
Why? I don’t believe anything in life can replace the teachings of playing and watching sport. The romance of it, the hardships, the disappointments and the moments of elation. When you watch your favorite team, watch your country play a sport it takes on a new meaning for me. I love myself in it, in … Continue reading I love being a sports fan . . .
Written this week for The Pundits As a United fan, I find myself in a very unfamiliar position at the start of this season. For as long as I’ve watched United, about 20 odd years, I have always felt safe in the knowledge that any preseason trading, games or tours only needed my bar room … Continue reading The season to come . . .
I have been delaying writing this for a while now. I guess I’ve been trying to plan it in my head since the room silencing news that Old Trafford would lose its greatest driving force in the clubs history, but until now I’ve yet to find the words, which if you know me, seems barely … Continue reading Goodbye Sir Alex . . .
Lets get a few things out of the way right up front because I know you are going to nag on them as you read the rest of this post. First and most important I’m a massive Manchester United fan, I have been for a very long time. I entertain debate about players, teams, coaches … Continue reading Time for football to deal with the rubbish!
Let’s get one thing very clear – if you are not a regular reader then you need to understand I am a MASSIVE Manchester United fan (if you don’t believe me have a look)! I respect Tottenham Hotspur tremendously as a club, their history, their legacy, their fans and their passion. I only scream for … Continue reading Harry MUST stay a ‘Spur’ and see out what he has started!
I may be a little biased due to the fact that this little bastard cost the last African team left in the 2010 soccer world cup their spot because, let’s be honest here, he’s a fucking cheat! I hated him when Manchester United threatened to sign him and I hated him the most when his … Continue reading How far The ‘Once Great” Liverpool’s soul has fallen!
You may have seen how we reported on MTN making it onto Manchester Uniteds website as an official sponsor – well hot on the heels SPURS have just announced their new sponsor and low and behold another South African company is hitting big! The two-year shirt sponsorship, effective from Season 2010/2011, will see the Investec brand feature on the Tottenham Hotspur shirts … Continue reading Spurs go South African!
Saturday was a superb sporting day from many respects but I will leave out the whining, pathetic and cry-baby behaviour of the losing Venus Williams, as well as the sheer dominance, heart and will to win of a 10 man Manchester United side that showed Spurs how hard it is to break into the top … Continue reading The Beauty of the Boks in Battle!
