For me this is the best team there is and the best team there ever would be. I became a fan of this great club in 1994, thanks to these two men I see as my heroes; Big Doz & Big Yomz ( my bro and cousin respectively).Thus far it’s been 18 years of mixed celebrations. The most memorable season for me as a fan was the 1999 treble winning season. Yes you guessed right, I am talking about Manchester United. My worst season as a fan was the 2011/2012 season where we lost the title on goals difference on the final day of the season to Man Shitty (Well I said it).
My best United player ever is Eric ‘the red’ Cantona and the worst is hmmmmmm I will say Jesper Blomqvist. He almost cost us the 1999 Champions league trophy. Truth be told Sir Alex is the greatest manager ever (we don dey win titles before Webb begin feature, hahahahahahahaha). Knocking Liverpool off their perch no be beans nah though Liverpool is more successful on the European front. I hear you, we are the best domestically.
No bragging, I am an objective football enthusiast and I throw banters at all teams/players I watch no matter how good they are. It’s part of the game jare, at least we have our mouth to talk and criticize stuff like this. For example our gum chewing boss being blinded by an untested 19 year old (Lucas Moura), where there are other players. Robin Van Persie? Fergie why nah? Abeg a younger Lewandowski will do. We need cover at the back, Rio Ferdinand (Chicago Fire as I choose to call him) has lost it jor. Injury to our covers (Smalling, Evans and Jones) has shown we need to buy players. Yea Vidic is back but needs to play a few games to regain complete fitness. Oh my, the holding midfield role is missing a no nonsense player in the mold of Roy Keane. Chai I hope say we no go carry mat come this coming season?
Winning the carling cup this coming season would do. We have always won something every season since the Glazers took over. Did I hear someone say Charity Shield no be trophy, na just tray? That’s your cup of tea o, we contested with a star studded Man City side, so the Community shield isn’t an honorary title.
I see a slightly good season ahead, but the other teams are catching up in terms of quality and determination. Players I would loved Man United to sign are Yann M’villa, Debuchy, Humels, Badstuber Tiote & Cabaye. Na wishful thinking o. I must point out that the pre-season games have been crap thus far. Just 3 goals in 5 games. Losing to Barcelona (on penalties) after a goalless draw in regulation time. A young United side also lost to Peterborough FC (coached by Sir Alex’s son Darren Ferguson) 2 nil. Young United side or not, na Man Utd dem flog jare.
Anyway, I believe in Sir Alex Ferguson.
There’s only one UNITED…………………………. MANCHESTER UNITED!!!
