Boylie’s Top 10 All-Time United Christmas Songs

Boylie’s Top 10 All-Time United Christmas Songs

Over the years United fans like many other fans have amended many a Christmas favourite to suit a player or abuse opponents on a regular basis. Older reds will fondly recall paying homage to Denis law with the following: Hark the Herald Angels singGlory to Denis Law the KingScores a goal every weekThrough the defence Georgie Best does sneakPasses the ball to Denis Law“He’s the King” the crowd does roarCracks the ball and breaks the netTo European football we are setDenis Law EmmanuelTwice as good as Colin BellHark the Herald Angels singGlory to…Read more …
Wembley, Everton ’85

Wembley, Everton ’85

In the days of mass coach travel to away games....... well in the days that the masses could travel to support United. I fondly remember going to Wembley against Everton in 85 by coach. In those heady days of Farah slacks, flicks/mullets and Adidas Samba, it was easy enough to book a coach for morning drives, stag do's and football matches.....usually if it is cash upfront and no need for receipts. Well for the afore mentioned trip a coach was organised for the Reds that boozed in and around the Didsbury and Burnage…Read more …
Dutch Patrick – Villa Away

Dutch Patrick – Villa Away

It was just a rainy Sunday a couple of years ago, we had drawn Villa away, 3th round FA Cup. Kick off 4 'o clock, i arrived in Birmingham at 12.30 hours, phoned some mates and met up with them in town where already were thousands of Reds drinking in every pub you could find in city centre. At 15.30 i took a cap to Villa park, picked up my ticket from my mate Phil and got into the ground. I was right at the bottom of the stand next to the pitch.…Read more …
That Was The Week That Was

That Was The Week That Was

In May 1999 many reds experienced a truly unforgettable week, I was no different but perhaps a bit more rock n roll. When Andy Cole scored the winner against Spurs the impossible was back on. After the match we all headed to Dukes 92 in Castlefield where the bouncers turned a blind eye to our celebratory singsong. The landlord Jim a big red even bought the whole pub a beer to toast our red shirted heroes. From there we headed to the Malmaison Hotel bar where we met up with the wonderful Cerys…Read more …
E I Addio We Nicked The Cup!

E I Addio We Nicked The Cup!

It was March 1996 and united were moving confidently towards the second double. We had a tricky run in and had to overcome Chelsea in the F A Cup semi final at Villa Park. I was running a coach and wanted to offer something a bit different. The game was kicking off at 12.30 so if we wanted a drink it would have to be early. The week before the semi final a mate of mine 100% Gary had drove me down to the Wolverhampton area where we called in a few pubs…Read more …
All This Way For Nothing?

All This Way For Nothing?

My first venture in United Road wasn't a happy one. It was the 17th December 1977 and although thrilled at going to watch United play I like any other seven year old kid wanted to be in the Stretford End with the noise, colour and fervour it possessed them days. Sadly the Stretford End was full and the turnstiles locked so my Dad took us into the United Road paddock. I was further disappointed as a very good Forest team hammered us four nil and of course went to win the championship. Although I considered…Read more …
