    The new United We Stand (233)

    The new UWS hits the streets tomorrow night at Old Trafford. Ed Woodward speaks in the second part of his exclusive interview with us - his first interview since taking over at Old Trafford.

    He talks about how the club could have done more to allay concerns surrounding the Glazer ownership, but how the mistrust may ease with time. He talks about naming rights at Old Trafford, United having a B team in the Football League and having the financial muscle to compete in even if United are not successful. Woodward also talks about United’s scouting and the model for ownership in German football.

    But that’s only part of the 44 page issue. There’s a report from the trip to San Sebastian, a look at United’s increasing links with London, Nottingham Reds, a Rooney backpack bought by a Serbian Red and United’s financial irregularities in 1969.

    Then there are the regulars in the current British fanzine of the year: Shredded Tweet, Guttersnipe, Jim White, They Bleed Red, White & Black, Meatbag Manifesto, James Scowcroft, Style Council, Mad Cyril, Reserves & Youth, the Story so Far, Ask The Anorak and Getting Away With It.

    Plus features on Morrissey’s book, psychology in football, the Manchester Air Race, Jock Stein, Alex Ferguson’s book, Prefab Sprout, 1981-82 and grafting in Israel.

    We’ll Meet Again looks at Everton, where Mark O’Brien says:
    “Steve Round is highly rated and all that but there is something quite amusing seeing his little ‘haircut by his aunty’ features sat next to Phil Neville looking a bit bewildered in them big boy’s Audi seats at Old Trafford. Appearances might be deceiving though and they might prove to be key cogs in the grand scheme to unseat Bayern Munich and Barcelona from the top places in European football.”

    Depending on the format and where you buy it, the mag costs between £2 and £2.50.

    You can order a printed or digital copy here - to read now.
    United We Stand is a Manchester United fanzine. 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 digital edition - and exact replica of the printed version - can be read via ITunes (for an ipad/iphone), where you can download the free UWS app. You can also read via Android and Amazon devices.

    The mag will also be in newsagents on Thursday.

    Enjoy it.
