Hall of Shame

The increasing Americanisation of our sport may have been partly halted by the recent collapse of the Super League but it resumed on Monday with the first inductees into the Premier League Hall of Fame.I'm actually a big fan of American sports, particularly t…

You Get What You Give

You might have saw National Rail turned its whole website grey to honour Prince Philip.Somehow that wasn't the most baffling to happen last week.No, because Saints went to relegation-threatened West Brom and put in the most half-assed, lily-livered, sad-sack …

Don't Call It A Comeback

Let's talk Danny Ings.He was back to his 2019/20 best at the weekend.First up, his assist for Armstrong's goal.It came at a crucial time. We'd just watched Burnley route-one us in the most depressing way.I was preparing to put the remote through the TV.But th…

Is Ralph panicking?

Few can hold their head high following our recent run, but Stuart Armstrong is definitely one of them.Everything he does on the pitch is positive. He drives. He creates. He commits.The run and cross for Danny's opener on Saturday was a perfect example of Stua…

Things can only get better...

This is our best attempt at a coherent explanation for why we've gone from clean sheets to 9-0 defeats.Click the tweet to unravel the Twitter thread.Agree or disagree? Hit reply and let us know your thoughts.

Tough times never last...

I fully expected nobody to listen to our Old Trafford post-match pod. Why would you? Best to just move on.But we've committed to our podcast and we massively appreciated all you who tuned in on Wednesday morning for our immediate, emotional reaction to Tuesda…
