Welbeck: England? I’m Like Any Manc Concentrating On United

After scoring a brilliant goal in his debut during our 5-0 battering of Stoke last season, Sir Alex Ferguson tipped Danny Welbeck for a big International future, as well as with United. Welbeck scored our only goal in a 1-0 win over Wolves this week, where we played with ten men for an hour of [...]

I Don’t GET England Fans

This was written by a City fan about Wayne Rooney: I sit there awaiting with baited breath for him to receive a beautiful through ball that he then latches onto, and promptly puts it in the back of the opposing net. ———— The Republik of Mancunia has brought out a brilliant downloadable World Cup preview.

Sir Alex Ferguson – The SHAME Of English Football

Sir Alex Ferguson has his problems with the BBC over a TV show which claimed his son, Jason Ferguson, who was a football agent at the time, was up to some dodgy dealings. So our manager fucked them off. More and more organisations and people have been added to Ferguson’s hate list since, with the [...]

Carrick Slated… But England Need Rooney

Following England’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Spain, Michael Carrick, who was picked ahead of Frank Lampard in the centre of midfield, was on the receiving end of some harsh criticism. In contrast, Wayne Rooney is being hailed as England’s saviour… again. I wonder how long it will last for this time! ———— The Republik [...]

Legend Ian Brown: We’re The Republik of Mancunia… We Don’t Give A F**k About England!

Before each match at Old Trafford, The Stone Roses – This Is The One is played. Ian Brown, the band’s frontman, is a massive red, who grew up in Timperley and names Eric Cantona as his favourite player. He once picked up an NME award but told organisers he would only come to receive it [...]

Shameless Defence Of Chelsea’s Drogba… But What About Rooney’s Fan Relations?

Shameless Defence Of Chelsea’s Drogba… But What About Rooney’s Fan Relations?

“Die die, Rooney Rooney, die!” sing the Everton fans whenever they face Wayne Rooney, their former hero. Rooney doesn’t stick his fingers up at them, swear at them, or respond in a negative way. Instead, he celebrates ecstatically when we score and kisses our badge. All a bit of harmless banter, with Rooney returning the [...]

England Bigger Than United? I Don’t THINK So Mr Chelsea

England Bigger Than United? I Don’t THINK So Mr Chelsea

There are always going to be players from the opposition teams that you dislike, whilst every now and again there will be a player you begrudgingly think highly of. It’s hard to imagine it now, but John Terry was actually a player I thought highly of. He seemed pretty decent. However, his nature over the [...]

UNITED > England… Regardless of what ManUtd.com says

As a lad, I still gave a shit about England. Whilst being proud of my Mancunian roots, I enjoyed watching England play. I hear United fans talk about how you can do both, support our club and follow England passionately, but all that died out for me probably around Euro 96. Now, I can’t abide [...]

How The Press Rated United’s England Players

How The Press Rated United’s England Players

Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown all played a big part in England’s 5-1 victory over Kazakhstan. Whilst the scoreline is not entirely reflective of the match, particularly when you consider the teams went in 0-0 at half time, our lads had a big part to play in the result. After the match, Oliver [...]

It’s All About United As England Beat Kazakhstan

Rio Ferdinand, who was oddly overlooked for captaincy by Fabio Capello, lead out England tonight, filling in for TinyTears’ who is struggling to overcome a reoccurring back injury. Playing for his country means a lot to Rio and he would be right to feel hard done by after missing out on the permanent captaincy, particularly [...]

League Clubs Bigger Than England

The football fan that has confused me more than any other is the England fan who will sing Wayne Rooney’s name when they’re at Wembley, yet will come to Old Trafford the following week and chant “you fat bastard!” whenever he’s on the ball. How does the England fan do it? Passionately support a team [...]

Drop Wayne Rooney, Now There’s A Good Idea

Manchester United lost five games last season. Wayne Rooney was absent for four of them. In the fifth, he scored the equalising goal, making it 1-1, before he was subbed off through injury, after which United conceded and lost. Is this a man you’d want to leave out of your side? If you’re an England [...]

United Hooligans, Anti-England and David Beckham

I’ve had my fair share of scraps over football in my time, but never the organised hooligan business. Whilst not something I’d be involved in personally, I am intrigued about how it all works. Why do they go around kicking the crap out of people every weekend? Do they really love the club? How much [...]

The Perfect Captain – Chelsea’s Terry Better Than Rio?

John Terry’s appointment as England captain has got me thinking about what a ‘good captain’ should be. The man who famously dropped David Beckham, before realising the errors of his ways (albeit, too late) and lost his job because of it, has made yet another controversial decision on awarding the captaincy to Terry. Of all [...]

Do You Want Rio For England Captain?

Do You Want Rio For England Captain?

Perfect timing for an International friendly eh? England take on the Czech Republic days after the Premiership season kicked off, in a pointless match at the new Wembley stadium. Training is under way and it’s a case of ‘same old England’. “I can guarantee we have 23 men who are ready to run through brick [...]
