Manchester United morons redefine loyalty as Brentford plan Arctic trek.

29 Mar

Its fair to say Manchester United have had a car crash of a season, relative to their recent standards. Their Premiership title is all but lost, entry to next season’s Europa League looks unlikely whilst they are ranked as 33/1 rank outsiders in a field of eight, for a last hope of glory – the Champion’s League.  Sadly, I’ll miss what could be (yet another) defining moment in the Old Trafford debacle as I’m going to be travelling North to watch Brentford at Oldham.

I say sadly. My footballing choice will always start and end with Brentford – moreso if that rare opportunity (in this first season of parenthood) to ‘play away’ presents itself. However, I have a ghoulish interest in what is due to unfold, quite literally, as Manchester United take on Aston Villa at lunchtime.

To read the rest of this article, season 2013/14 is now available to download onto Kindle, in full. Containing previously unseen content, you can do so here for less than the cost of one matchday programme.

 Thanks for reading over the course of the campaign. For now I need to make space on this page for any follow up.  The ‘close season’ / World Cup columns continue in full, further on in this site.

    What utter nonsense . United fans do not expect to win every game or endless trophy’s , but we want to see a United side motivated , tactically prepared and giving its all , We want a manager to come out fighting a\t press conferences instead of defeatism before a ball is kicked , but most of all we want a team sent out with passion to give its best even if not always good enough .. .
    This season as been a shambles , from the transfer cock ups in the summer to Moyes embarrassing dinosaur tactics , Moyes is not up to the standard this great club and fans deserve , he as to go , simple .

      Cheers – much appreciated.
      I guess from my perspective I see a manger who has inherited the biggest shoes possible and an ageing squad.
      I do wonder what the supporters would make of the season if, somehow, Champion’s League success occurred.
      Regardless, I don’t think Moyes has helped himself but what a way to respond to the plane crazy crew with that 4-1 win.
      Look positive, at least you’ve done enough to avoid a trip to Griffin Park next season.
