About Manchester United Blog, United Ramble.
Who is United Ramble?
The Manchester United blog and website of United Ramble was founded and launched on the internet back in February 2014 by owner and editor Rodger Ramble, a home and away (when the ballots allow) match going Red living in the heart of Salford, Manchester. The thought behind the website is to create a base for thought, discussion and views on the biggest football club to grace the English league, launching at a time where transition was very much the word as we watched David Moyes try to stamp his authority and continue the success that this club has only known over the past 26 years under Sir Alex Ferguson. That went well.
Rodger himself is a massive fan of all the Manchester United Fanzines that are sold around Old Trafford on a match day, with inspirational ideas for the website taken from UWS, Red Issue & Red News to bring the fans views to a computer, laptop or tablet by creating an online portal of content that is attractive, eloquent & easy to access from anywhere in the world.
Now, the United Ramble is creating a regular team of featured writers through-out the website to cover every aspect of Manchester United, whether that be on the latest ins and outs with transfers, reporting on the latest goings on from inside Old Trafford or a match report from a cold and wet Monday night down at the AJ Bell Stadium for the under-21s, we aim to have it all covered.
To get in contact with Rodger, or anyone of the United Ramble team then feel free to contact us direct through here.
