Convertible Reds…On The Side View Its The Lad On The Far Right

The Blackpool and Fylde Branch of MUSC used to be massive back in the 1970’s and 80’s. We’d have a double decker bus covering the coast from Fleetwood to St Annes and another leaving from Preston for every match played at Old Trafford. They were great days with some proper characters. Well, maniacs may be a more suitable term actually, never a dull moment with MUSC Blackpool and Fylde. We all boarded the bus one Saturday morning in April 1980, excited at the prospect of seeing United v Liverpool at Old Trafford. In…Read more …

Bare (Two) Faced Cheek

My late father always used to say “wait till they win that Championship son, the crowd will go wild because there is no better feeling”. We had a few false dawns in my United supporting lifetime and one that often gets overlooked is the 1975/6 season. Fresh out of Division Two we actually could have won the double which would have been remarkable as very few teams had ever done it. The F A Cup was so big those days that getting to the final and being favourites seemed to almost end our…Read more …
No Surprises

No Surprises

So yet again when Manchester United are crowned champions the ABU nation declares that it’s a really poor league this season. It was never poor when Liverpool all those years ago won it at a canter or when Chelsea’s boring ‘1 : 0 will do’ football won it two years running. Don’t get me wrong no red can deny the current team isn’t as breathtaking as some of the swashbuckling teams we've been privileged to watch in last twenty years, but winning the title is always a fantastic achievement by the best team…Read more …
Far Gone And Out

Far Gone And Out

I'm constantly being told we have too much of a commanding lead to throw away the title by friends and pundits alike. In 1985 we won the first ten games of the season and fell away in a bad way after Christmas and finished 4th as Liverpool did their only League and Cup double. In 1992 after Man City hammered Leeds 4 Nil we were ahead on points with games in hand and of course nobody needs reminding about 1997/8 or last season. Yes 15 points is the sort of lead one would…Read more …
Match Review: Shhh I’m Reading

Match Review: Shhh I’m Reading

I had the busiest of match days I've had for a long time at Old Trafford. I arrived at the Bishops for my usual sing song at the ridiculous early time of 11:30 and to my surprise the pub was already filling up. A good two hours of rallying the troops before I nipped up to Red Square to do an hour on stage with my red mate Rob and top guitarist. We seemed to go down really well with a selection of old and new united classics. Barely 10 minutes after finishing…Read more …
