Introduction: 9th July 2011

Samir Nasri agreed terms to move from Arsenal to Manchester City. A union of convenience motivated by a love of filthy lucre was formed.

Also, we got married.

The Husband

Longstanding supporter of Manchester United. Right back at primary, secondary school and Sunday league teams (cup winners, 1994). First team reserve for church team in London Churches Football Tournament (Fair Play award, 2009). Winner of church Fantasy Football League, 2009.

The Wife

Close neighbour of Emirates Football Stadium. Parents live two doors down from Dickson Etuhu, Fulham. Pavlovian response to MOTD theme tune is to fall asleep. Strong opinions and no previous football knowledge.

As the Husband educates the Wife about football, the two halves of this match should become one harmonious whole. Meanwhile, we’ll try to combine long-held, thought-out views on football with uninformed ones; also suggestions for improving the game, flights of imaginative-but-not-libellous-fancy, and theories about why things happen the way they do.
