So do you ever get use to losing? After Ferguson retired we havent exactly had the best time to put it in a nice way, and we should be used to losing games by now. But I just cant. After every loss Im disappointed and sad. The negative effect with social media is that every opinion gets out there and things are so easily blown up. Its now reached a level I cant cope with. Before it used to be fun and interesting getting online after a game to see peoples reactions, now its embarrassing and we as supporters are so split.
After Juventus, after yet a loss, Im still here today hoping and believe United will fight back. Before the game Tuesday I was prepared for a loss. If I wouldnt Id be naive, but I felt the atmosphere in the club had changed lately, that the spirit was there and the guys were ready to face Juve with a game face on. And they tried, but football is a game with two halves and it isnt good enough just showing up for the second. Today they must be ready from kick off. We desperately need three points.
Bringing my nephew over to Manchester for the first time defiantly did the trip to a good one even though we lost the game. Taking him to my favorite place in the world was amazing. Seeing the 12 year old walking toward Old Trafford is a memory Ill never forget. I can only imagine how I would have felt that young and seeing the Theatre of Dreams for the first time. Its so big, so much to see, it can take your breath away..
We walked around the stadium, took pictures and shopped in the megastore. After that we had dinner and visited Circus and the Tollgate before walking into the stadium early.
Unfortunately it didnt go our way, but we was there and we gave us support. Thats what we do.
This will be my third trip to Manchester this season, and definitely the most special one. I’m taking my youngest nephew over for the first time and we’re both crazy about Manchester United and also Ronaldo, so seeing this game with him live mean a lot. It will for sure be a memory for life for us both and I will try to make this trip very special for him.
We’re as we speak in the lounge at the airport in Oslo and we’re both so excited. Manchester United vs Juventus, what a game! It doesn’t get much bigger than this and I really love the big games. Late Champions League games at Old Trafford, ah, I get goosebumps thinking of it..
my first thought when we got Juve was that I’m going, and I’m wearing one of my Ronaldo shirts! But I got a text yesterday from a friend that made me insecure. She meant I really couldn’t wear that tomorrow. For me it’s a tribute to one of my all time favorite United players, to show him the respect and honor him in what most likely will be his last visit to Old Trafford. She said any other day, but not tomorrow. And I know he will do anything to win. So I really get her point too, and when I asked on Twitter most said no, don’t wear it. On Instagram most said yes 😂 so definitely different options on that. And those who knows me know I’ll do whatever I want anyway, I just agree on both options so it’s hard 😂🤔 To be sure I packed five shirts so I got options! No matter what shirt I’ll choose to wear, when Ronaldo walk on the pitch I’ll give him the best welcome ever, but when the whistle blows…it’s game time 😈
Will we win tonight? Juve is favorites, but as I said before Chelsea, you really don’t know what you get these days. I haven’t blogged since before Newcastle and OH MY GOD those games almost killed me. I got so much to say about everything that’s in the media, but I don’t have time to do that now and I’m staying positive! I’m prepared to lose tonight, but I hope the guys will give their all. I’m so happy for Martial and hope he starts tonight, I think it’s a perfect game for him.
Follow my Snapchat and Instagram, I’ll send love from Instagram later and I’ll try to take a lot of pictures!
‘Jose Mourinho has lost the confidence of the United board and will be sacked this weekend, regardless of the outcome of the game against Newcastle’.
If that turns out to be true, I’m ashamed of how our club is being run. It physically makes me ill on how they treat people if this is the case. I back Gary Neville 100% on his answer to it;
‘Jose will get the biggest support he’s ever had in his life tomorrow at that ground and I’ll be there to give it to him. If it’s true and it’s broken the day before, it’s an absolute disgrace. Where’s the values and principles of United?’
‘Enough is enough. I love that football club. It’s been my life and it’s given me everything. I’m not turning on my football club but something has to change and it isn’t the manager. It’s above that. I’m furious. It’s an absolute disgrace.’
A M E N !
‘All my staff stood by me, the players stood by me, you stood by me, and your job now is to stand by our new manager. That’s important.’
We all remember who said that, and he was talking to us. I agree and said this many times, Mourinho isn’t perfect. But sacking him now will lead to even more problems. I want United to win, every game. And every game I’ll support the manager.
It will be an interesting game, United need a win. I’ll repeat myself from what I said before last game; I just wanna see passion and effort.
‘Match day’ er normalt mitt favorittord og jeg gleder meg alltid til kamp. Men jeg skal ikke lyve, det er litt annerledes nå. Misforstå meg rett, jeg kommer alltid- uansett- til å støtte laget mitt. Det vil aldri forandre seg, men akkurat nå er det lite glede å spore.. Det er så mye feil med hvordan klubben vår blir styrt, presset er absolutt på Mourinho, men jeg står fortsatt fast ved at det er feil å sparke han nå. At klubben har problemer er ikke på Mourinho. Det er de over han som skal ta skylda for det. De som tenker mer på penger og profitt enn hva som er Manchester Uniteds DNA. Når de er fornøyde så lenge United kvalifiserer seg til Champions League spill, så lenge de får nye sponsorer og mest mulig penger ut av oss supportere så er det er noe alvorlig galt. De brys seg ikke om tradisjonene eller historien til klubben, men hva skal man forvente når de som styrer ikke har greie på fotball? Jeg er oppriktig bekymret om ting ikke forandrer seg.
Jeg sier ikke at Mourinho er perfekt, kanskje er han feil mann til å lede United, men det er uansett ikke riktig å kvitte seg med han nå. Jeg tør ikke tenke på det styret som vil skje da. Han trenger støtte fra både klubben og oss supportere nå. Og jeg ser heller spillere gå før han.
‘Ingen er større enn klubben’.
Det sitatet bør rippes inn på hver eneste plass i garderoben. Det er både flaut og trist å se hvordan enkelte spillere oppfører seg. De forstår ikke hvor stort det er å spille for United og da kan de dra. Vi trenger ikke urokråker som ikke er gira på å gi en innsats. Jeg vil se passion og at de blør for drakta.
Det er umulig å komme med forventninger foran kveldens kamp, fordi jeg er så usikker hvor store problemene er. Hvem vil kjempe for en seier? Vi vet aldri hva vi kan forvente av laget eller hva som skjer så det er vanskelig å spå.. Serien er vi for lengst ute av, men nå er det heldigvis Champions League og sesongens første hjemmekamp. Jeg elsker Champions League kvelder og jeg håper de som starter i kveld har riktig attitude. Det eneste jeg vil se er at de anstrenger seg og virkelig jobber for seier i kveld. Er det for mye å be om?
Match day is usually my favorite word and Im always excited to see United play. But I wont lie, its not the same anymore. Dont get me wrong, I will always support United, no matter what. But the joy is as we speak just not there. Theres so much thats wrong with how our club is working at the moment. The pressure is for sure on Mourinho, but I still mean its not the best option to sack him. Our club is in deep shit and its not because of Mou. Its the guys above him thats the problem. They think more of business and not football and whats Manchester Uniteds DNA. When theyre happy with just qualifying to the Champions League and getting most money out of us supporters rather than entertaining us and keeping United as the most winning team in England theres something seriously wrong. I dont mind spending all of my money on United, I will always buy the shirts and buy expensive flight tickets because I need to see United play at Old Trafford and I want to support them the best I can, but now Im not happy. Im fed up and Im also afraid of Uniteds future if this continues. Manchester United is owned by non football people who dont care about the clubs tradition. The problem starts there.
Im not saying Mourinho is perfect, he needs to change as well. But honestly, its not the right decision to sack him. He needs support from us and the club. I would rather see players go before him.
No one is bigger than the club
That statement should be written on the chairs to the players in the dressing room. Im embarrassed over the lack of passion and effort some of them shows. They dont understand how big it is to play for United. And if you dont understand and respect that, I can happily show them the door out myself.
So how am I feeling about tonight? Those who follow me knows Im optimistic. Maybe a bit too much. But I always believe and want to see the best in people, the same as United. But its impossible to give a prediction these days.. I simply dont know what to expect.. And I hate that feeling. Were way out in the league, thats for sure. But tonights its Champions League and hopefully the players will burst off the loss against West Ham and face tonights opponents with a fresh attitude. I want to see effort tonight.
