    UWS Summer Special 2014

    The summer United We Stand - issue 240 - is not out. It will cost £3 for the eighth successive season.

    We posted the subscriptions and one off orders from Manchester on Saturday. They began arriving on Monday.

    To order a 10 issue sub, click below. If you want it as a gift for father's day, write the dad's address in the optional message box on your Paypal order. Plus the name who you want the gift from. We'll then include a letter to the dad, explaining that it's the first copy of a ten issue subscription to United We Stand, with your name at the bottom.

    Digital copies of the summer special can also now be downloaded. To subscribe to a digital issue for your Apple or Android product, click here. The app is free to download.

    To order a single printed issue, click here.

    The mag will be in the usual outlets from next Wednesday, 11th June.

    Here's a sample of the content.

    Technique, our long established end of term report by Meatbag. This one runs over seven pages.
    Part of the 427 word Fellaini appraisal reads.

    "It’s roughly the equivalent of your television breaking and instead of buying a new swanky Sony Bravia 42 inch HD fucker, you buy a bag of frozen peas instead and stick it in the corner of the living room and wonder why you can’t watch Animal Hospital on it. And you paid £499.99 for the peas as well by the way, which is roughly the price of top quality television, but not the price of a bag of fucking peas."

    Eminent Dutch journalist Thijs Slegers answers readers questions and tells us things we never knew about Louis van Gaal.
    "Van Gaal’s philosophy is all about discipline," he says. "Outside and inside the field. The players will get the feeling that Big Brother is watching them, everywhere they go.
    "I know this sounds suffocating, but the past has learned that Van Gaal knows how to create an atmosphere where everybody feels good. So for sure it’s not a negative conclusion. No one is bigger then the team. Van Gaal doesn’t allow individuals to step outside the group with their behaviour."

    We spoke to a man called Carlos Queiroz. He's just arrived in Brazil and is about to lead Iran in the World Cup finals.

    And the football correspondent from the Washington Post ahead of United's US pre-season. Which we'll be at.

    We've articles on Giggs' Wales debut in Germany, Gorse Hill, Wimbledon away in '93, alcohol and football, plus memories of IMUSA meetings in Stretford. We doubt those secrets would stay in that room these days.

    Articles too on missing European football and the dismal end to 2013/14, while House of Style pops back in with a page of his thoughts. On boxing and United.

    As well as the first team, we have an end of season report for the reserves and youth teams. And a two pager on non-league football in Manchester from Altrincham to FC Utd, Trafford to Salford City. We've got a features on the Lancaster Reds, Fergieism, plus the Transmission music column on 'As Able As Kane' and Style Council.

    Then we have fine offering from regular writers like Ian Bland, Joe Ganley, Jim White, Andy Mitten, James Scowcroft and FUBAR.

    Plus the regular features like Letters - sample:
    "Dear UWS. I hope Vidic’s wife is happier in Milan after her constant moaning about Manchester, the sour-faced ratbag. In my experience it’s a crap city with no decent pubs whatsoever. The joke is on her!"
    And they Bleed Red, White and Black, Shredded Tweet, Full Quota, Book Reviews, Mad Cyril and HWIFY.

    Oh, and Guttersnipe where you'll learn a lot about MUFC. Like the man who put himself forward for the United job after Moyes. And the one who wasn't interested when United approached. Or the popular player who is getting too big for his boots, set against the other maligned one who is a gent.

    We've put hundreds of hours of work into the summer special. We hope you enjoy it.

    Great stuff. Just ordered it looking forward to reading my first summer issue!
