Man Utd roll into town on Wednesday evening and you can bet your bottom dollar there special_widget_picwill be the usual pseudo-Mancs in Tilley’s dressed like its 1990 and imagining they are still “cool”.

Check out the sudden influx of Far Eastern tourists looking gormless on Barrack Road as well.

Before all that kicks off at St James’ Park though the team that brings you the match-day newsletter, THE SPECIAL will have something in your in-box ahead of the game by way of a fanzine-style alternative to the banality of the official programme and the plugs for Mike Ashley companies.

THE SPECIAL is fresh, up to date, full of original material, written by Mags who go home and away following United and who love the club just like you.

THE SPECIAL is absolutely FREE as well.

THE SPECIAL is absolutely brilliant on any device – we think it works particularly well pheonixlogoon a smart-phone and read before matches in the same way you once read the true faith hard-copy fanzine i.e. on the bus, metro, in the pub, before KO, at half time etc. But its great on a PC, lap-top, tabley, kindle, i-pad etc. So it doesn’t matter if you are going to the match or not, you can still get a pre-match, bespoke read before you settle down to watch the game on TV, listen on the radio or whatever.

All you need to do to make sure you get THE SPECIAL into your in-box on match-day morning is simply sign up once for it and until you tell us to stop, you’ll be be getting THE SPECIAL until we keel over.
