Con Artist (@Con_Artistes) presents:
‘This United’ with John-Paul O’Neill (Red Issue), Andy Mitten (United We Stand), Barney Chilton (Red News) and host Joe Molloy [Off The Ball, Newstalk FM).
An insiders fanzine viewpoint and audience Q&A of one of the most crucial periods in the modern history of Manchester United Football Club...David Moyes, Sir Alex Ferguson, the owners, the players, the future, the club. United, This United.
Screening: 30th Anniversary of Manchester United Vs. Barcelona, ECWC QF 2nd Leg, Old Trafford, March 21, 1984.
United had lost the first leg of their Cup Winners' Cup quarter-final 2-0 at the Nou Camp through Graeme Hogg's own goal and Juan Carlos Pérez Rojo's last-minute strike.
Ron Atkinson's side were given little chance of overturning that deficit against the Spanish giants, who were managed by World-Cup winning coach Cesar Luis Menotti and boasted a certain Diego Armando Maradona in their illustrious ranks. Arguably the greatest atmosphere experienced inside Old Trafford. Relive the occasion this night.
Since February 1989 the best outlet for a satirical view of the football world and all the inside news and gossip from Old Trafford and beyond.
Find out what's really going on behind the headlines via Woodward and Bernstein's 'Word On The Street', as they report all the snippets and tales the press can't or won't print; rage along with the notorious Mr Spleen at the excesses of the modern game; wring your hands with the outraged Twitterati brigade at the mag's scandalous p1sstakes and black humour; and scream "Won't someone please think of the children!" as Chief Superintendent Roberts attempts to save the public from exposure to our scouse-baiting japes.
Along with regulars such as Bertie Magoo, Sticky Fingers and Life Of Smiley; regular in-depth features on up-to-date football matters and, above all, a wholly irreverant look at the modern game, what more could you want for the price of pint?
Founded in 1987, as relevant as ever in 2011/12, our very own 25th anniversary season, REDNEWS is a Manchester United fanzine - available as a printed magazine on sale at Old Trafford on matchdays, a new digital download version for your tablet/pc/phone and via the post directly to your door (order at Subscribe to Red News, Manchester United's First Fanzine) together with its online presence here offering the most extensive United news and views service on the net, together with its forums where Reds can debate, share info, gossip and banter away.
The fanzine and site is run by Reds for Reds, 100% independent and unofficial (and for adults only), but offering Manchester United fans wherever they may be a voice. The fanzine offers an irreverent look from the perspective of match going United supporters, there to have a laugh, poke fun at our rivals, yet offer constructive criticism if necessary about the club - but sharing a love for all things MUFC. There is opinion on current events, and trips down memory lane with great stories and pictures. Retro looks and current thought on the game today, and yesterday. We don't have or want the backing of large organisations - we are proud that a fanzine remains different and unique in the world because it offers an honest plain talking view about how football fans really see the game to fellow fans seeking honesty and a shared love for all things mufc. Sharing a culture, blessed as MUFC fans.
It's a labour of love - we don't have fancy premises or a HQ, just a group of United fans giving their time and (at times!) endless effort to provide what we feel is a unique look and forum in the wider sense for United fans to use. We are a small operation, but have a loud voice. We work from our homes, in our work, because it is a labour of love. Welcome! We are proud and honoured to offer Reds a choice, and that voice, and we thank all of you who support us.
Rednews was founded in 1987, and its web presence arrived in August 2000. Both are separate entities - so what you find in the printed fanzine you won't find on the website and vice versa - but share the same ideal, that United fans, the best in the world, deserve a fanzine and website that allows them to express their opinions where previously they went unheard. REDNEWS was the first Manchester United fanzine and is proud that it continues to flourish into its fourth decade when so many other fanzines from back then are sadly no longer with us - but we can only survive with your support, which is why if you enjoy using our facilities here that we hope you have a look at the ways that you can help support us. And get something lovely in return. Every order is vital and crucial.
The printed fanzine has exclusive interviews with past and present United players (over 60 interviewed already), good features and analysis, extensive gossip, laughs at our rivals with mickey taking graphics and reports from match going Reds on their travels to away games - we'd like you to give the fanzine a try. This website provides an overview of all the United news of the day, and then allows its readers to discuss those subjects on our forums, one of which is free, the others which are available to our online subscribers.

Red News since its creation back in 1987 has seen so much happen at United that we look forward to many more seasons enjoying and talking and writing about the great life that being a Manchester United fan is all about. There is nothing on earth like being a Red. MUFC is not a hobby to us all, it is a way of life. And long may that continue.
United We Stand
First published in 1989 when Manchester United was very different to the corporate beast it has become, United We Stand is an independent voice of Manchester United supporters.
The majority of UWS writers watch Manchester United home and away and the mag has long been established as one of Britain's best selling football fanzines. Influential, incisive, irreverent and proudly independent, UWS tells it like it is. You might not always agree with the opinions within, but you'll take note.
The mag has carried in depth interviews with United related personalities from Roy Keane to Ian Brown, Sir Alex Ferguson to officials like David Gill, Martin Edwards and Peter Kenyon. As we move into our third decade of publication, UWS is still going strong.
Host Joe Molloy Has worked right across the Newstalk schedule for nearly 7 years in both current affairs and sport. Has reported from British Opens, the London Olympics and Euro 2012. Currently, presenter of the award winning Off the Ball
