An oasis of love, in a desert of compassion

Submitted by on November 18, 2012 – 5:06 pmNo Comment

Despite the poor on-pitch performance of FC United on Saturday, Course You Can Malcolm was once again a resoundingly wonderful event that brought cheer and smiles to faces, which could have otherwise been creased by the challenges of society and the ill intentions of life’s miscreants.

Actress Maxine Peake’s mint band The Eccentronic Research Council were warmly considered to be one of the best turns we have had on and many nodded along with a knowing smile to the stories of witch craft.

Navajo’s new PA was a booming belter. Even Stu from the Bay’s pisspoor cake cutter (99p off eBay) could not dent people’s enthusiasm.

We promised hugs and there were plenty to go around as people forgot their woes and ignored the harm-seekers to enjoy themselves in the best mancunian traditions of song, food and ale.

Furthermore the club benefited by around £900 in takings, resulting from the selling of homemade veggie food and cakes and the lovingly sourced meat products and refreshments. All tastes catered for in the true communal sense.

If you have not yet sampled the club night in the afternoon that takes place in the shit bar behind the MRE at Gigg Lane prior to FC United’s Saturday home games, then come along on December 15 for the next happening. Noodles has a band booked, so if they are bobbins we can blame him.

Thanks to the hard work of the volunteers and the support of the club, mostly through Jules Spencer, CYCM has flourished this season, despite the many challenges of last term. Thanks to all for providing such a lovely, alternative afternoon’s matchday entertainment, that even a 4-0 drubbing could not sully. And that is not grandstanding…

PS a message from the band in response to our thank you to them – ‘it was a pleasure,we enjoyed ourselves & the pies…May your team keep winning hearts if not games’
