one step at a time

God mandag folkens, selv om jeg var stuptrøtt i dag tidlig så er jeg klar for mandag og ny uke! Dere sleit vel like mye som meg i går når det kom til å få se kampen så vår løsning hjemme ble å skru av mobilene våre og dra på kino. Vi så Joker og den skuffet ikke, Joaquin Phoenix er en av mine favorittskuespillere og en funfact er at han er også en av grunnene jeg er veganer. Han er også det og er en folka bak dokumentaren Earthlings og etter jeg så den så var det ingen vei tilbake for meg så takk for det Joaquin 💪🏽 Uansett, filmen var veldig bra og anbefales!

Da vi kom hjem kunne vi se reprisen, ganske håpløst å måtte skru av mobil og sitte sent oppe for å se en kamp som allerede har gått, men sånn ble det nå denne gangen.

Jeg skriver alltid mine meninger om kamper på forhånd på Instagram og Snapchat og jeg skrev på dagen i går at det er ikke et spørsmål om vi må vinne denne kampen, det er kun seier som er bra nok. Jeg er drittlei av dårlig spill og dårlig attityde, United må spille hver kamp i serien som om det skulle ha vært en finale. Ja, det er vel lov å drømme…?

Kanskje fordelen av å forvente lite er nettopp det jeg fikk oppleve i går, totalt sjokk og fryd over Gud vet hvor mange avslutninger på mål? Og det var underholdene?! Ja dette var moro og mer måtte det bli!!

Kampen var langt fra perfekt, det er fortsatt feil her og der, spillere som ikke hører hjemme i United, de må bli mer kliniske på mål og straffe skal alltid være = MÅL. Men dette, dette var stor PROGRESS!

Jeg skal ikke gå alt for dypt inn i eldre kamper, men jeg sa det etter Liverpool, at jeg håpte dette var et snupunkt for United. Endelig så spillerne skarpe ut og det var en plan, begge deler hadde manglet lenge i spillet. Og selv om spillet mot Partizan Beograd ikke var på United nivå (som vi vil ha det) så var det en veldig viktig borteseier. Den første siden natten i Paris! På tide med andre ord..

Vi kan se på andre lag som slår dårlige cuplag ned i støvla og forvente at vi også skal det, men er jeg den eneste som husker at det ikke er hverdags? Selvfølgelig har det hendt, men det er langt fra vanlig. Alle topplag har også røket ut mot små lag, det er slik cuper er og jeg er så lei fans som ikke skjønner dette og forventer 5-0 seiere hele tiden, spesielt med den stallen vi har nå. I slike kamper må enkelte hviles og spillere som ikke slipper til ellers får spilletid her, det sier seg selv at det er langt fra ‘en gåtur i parken’ 😂  men det vi skal ta med oss er unggutta, fy søren som de har imponert og hvor herlig er ikke det?? Disse kommer opp og frem mye pga skadesituasjonen så alt er ikke bare negativt. Kampen i Beograd var langt fra bra, men de klarte det de kom dit for. En borteseier og Williams imponerte stort! Debut og en så stor ro, fantastisk å se på!

En annen som har vokst er McTominay og jeg vil si han har vært den beste så langt denne sesongen, og at dette er en gutt fra vårt eget akademi er så deilig. Han viser at knallhard jobbing og tøff mentalitet lønner seg- som det også skal! Og da kommer vi over til sesongens store skuffelse.. mr JLingz burde endre varemerket til JLingZZZZ for det der er triste saker altså. Han er ikke en ung og talentfull gutt fra akademiet som trenger mer tid, han kommer aldri til å bli bedre enn dette og hadde mye heller passet et lag som feks Watford der han faktisk kunne bidratt, i United gjør han ikke det og jeg håper vi selger han nå i januar mens det er mulighet å få noe for han.

To borteseiere på rad, perfekt å møte Chelsea på onsdag og Bournemouth tidlig lørdag- dette blir en knall uke og jeg har troa 😁 og ja- jeg er optimist frem til det motsatte er bevist 😆

 

Happy Monday people! A part from I woke up super tired today, I’m ready for a new week! Because of strict (and ridiculous) rules, the game wasn’t shown anywhere in Norway yesterday and since watching just headlines or a stream isn’t an option for me, me and my boyfriend turned off our phones and went to the cinema and watch Joker. Amazing movie, Joaquin Phoenix is one of my favorite actors and also a big big reason I went vegan! He is also vegan and are one of the people behind the documentary Earthlings, which I watched and never looked back! Nothing to do with the movie of course, but a fun fact. The movie is a must watch 😁

Norway only showed the game after it was finished so we went home for dinner and the game later (I go early to bed that’s why I was so tired today because it was later than usual 😂)

I always post my match predictions on Instagram and Snapchat before games and yesterday I said what I’ve been saying for so long; nothing but a win is good enough. No question about it. I also said United have to play every game in the league now like it’s a final. No more of bad attitude and poor performances! Yeah, a girl can dream right?

Well, what a game?!?! It was entertaining, I was shocked 😂

The game wasn’t perfect, still flaws here and there, we should have been more clinical with the finishing and of course penalty = goal. We should have won at least 5-0. But we won 3-1 in a very entertaining game. PROGRESS PEOPLE!

I don’t like to write too much about previous games after there’s been a new one, it’s the past and the players are over it and are focusing on the new ones coming and so should we. But I said the Liverpool game could be a turning point. The players were sharp, they had a plan, both parts had been missing lately so we could only wish for this to continue.

Partizan Beograd was the first away win since the night in Paris. About time! The game wasn’t good at all, but let me remind you that United rarely has smashed opponents in games like this. That, and the state of our club..? We just can’t expect a big victory away when some of the players must be rested and the rest of the squad are getting minutes. I’m not going to analyze the game, it was bad l, but we got what we went there for. A win. Williams was definitely MOTM and I loved seeing him so comfortable, I love his style and I’m sure Solskjær will use him more often. Which means Luke Shaw really need to step up big time.

The youth have impressed me so much this season, important to remember, everything that’s happened this season isn’t bad. People are impatient and I get it, but it will turn. And this could be a start of it. I loved the link between Rash and Martial yesterday, just imagine those two with a proper midfield with creative world class players.

We talked about it yesterday as this was the 10th game in the league. Who has been the best player? Worst? For me it’s definitely McTominay who’s getting best player so far and nothing better than it being an academy player!! He’s so tough and I love his mentality,

hard work pays off- as it should! And speaking of hard work, the ‘medal’ for worst player goes to Lingard. I’m sorry but your time is up and time to go.. He won’t get any better and don’t contribute so when he comes on it’s like…great, one less player on the pitch and one new wrinkle in my face.

United won a comfortable win away in the league and it’s perfect for this week! Chelsea Wednesday and Bournemouth early Saturday, both hard games so this confident is so important.

Trough thick and thin

I had a bad feeling about Newcastle away, and unfortunately I was right. With this thin squad and several important players out, and United being on a really bad track, I knew it was going to be hard.

This situation is making me feel sick. Sick and almost heartbroken because I feel it won’t end good. I wasn’t surprised at all when Longstaff scored and because I love this sport I couldn’t help feeling happy for him. He played with passion and his feelings for his club said it all when he scored. That’s what football is all about and I miss it.

You know what I feel about Solskjær and I would have said the same about anyone else in his shoes right now. I’m backing him but he needs to be more ruthless and for ffs stick to a game plan. I’m really struggling to see what the players are practicing on training? It looks like they never played together and it’s awful to watch. Some players should have played their last minutes for Manchester United on Sunday and no matter how much I love Matas personality, he doesn’t deserve playing from start. You simply don’t run AWAY from the ball, simple as that. The players that should have stepped up has failed massively and I’ll blame they more than Solskjær.

Without knowing what’s going on in the dressing room, everything people are saying are simply speculations, but what Keane said back in April has some truth in it; ‘ leopards doesn’t change their spots, these are the same players that threw Mourinho under the bus and they’ll do exactly the same to Ollie.’

There has to be some truth in it because I refuse to believe that Solskjær is happy with this. And for what he’s saying to the press, come on. Have you ever had a job where you don’t agree on how to do things/say things but because it’s your boss you have to stick with it?! What do you guys really think would happen if he said it as it was? Of course Ole wanted midfielders and at least one striker, but he can’t go out saying the team he got now is poor. He has to stay positive, we all know what happened to our managers who went to the media admitting they don’t have a clue or start to blame the board/players. This is Solskjærs dream job and he will do what’s in his power to make United great again. I can even understand he using Mata, Matic, Young etc because if he hadn’t he would have get massive abuse for not using players with experience. When results are missing, everything you do is wrong.

Relegation? Would have been fun that, good old games against Leeds again, the fans that’s here just for glory would be gone and maybe also the Glazers as well? 😂

We got ONE world class player in this team and that’s David De Gea. Man I felt for him during his post match interview. But it was honest and truthful. He can’t throw the players under the bus but he’s clearly not happy with their performances.

And players like De Gea is part of the reason I will back this team. First of all I will always support Manchester United because as a fan that’s just what you do no matter results, but even though I agree there’s many players that needs to go, the squad isn’t full rotten. There’s a lot of potential, our new signings and the youth are very exciting and they need us! We can’t only be there for the team when they win and when it’s bad they use the Glazer excuse to not support the team anymore. That’s just so wrong in my eyes, I want the Glazers out as well but I will always back the team. It’s trough thick and thin remember..

Embarrassing and boring

Going home with 1 point after playing away in Europe isn’t that bad. But United yesterday was a disaster. I couldn’t figure out what their plan was, it was just.. awful!

We’re getting used to bad results now, and as long as there’s some kind of progress (like we we’re playing youngsters etc) I can deal with it, but I CAN NOT DEAL WITH BAD PERFORMANCE. So many players should feel ashamed over their performance. I have played football myself so I know so very well it’s hard but it’s not hard to try your best. Simple as that. Only positive thing was Williams, I really like him and he was the man of the match in my eyes. Says it all really..

It was a really bad pitch, we have so many players out with injuries and yesterday we combined players that’s probably not meant for the future-not good enough (except 4)  with youngsters that need time to progress so we can’t expect it to be a 5-0 game and a show off but we can and must expect more than this!!

Fans are so impatient and Solskjær needs to go all out next game. United have to score goals and win comfortable. How we’re going to do that away without Pogba, Wan-Bissaka and Martial is beyond me but it’s much needed.

Big game tonight

Playing against Arsenal is always something special because one of the first games I watched as a kid was against them and we got some legendary matches to look back at. But I have to be honest, part of the buzz is gone. I don’t have the typical matchday feeling and I hate it, especially when it’s a big game!

Big games always excites me and I think about the game all day, but I’m not looking forward to another humiliation on Old Trafford 😂 and don’t get me wrong- I will ALWAYS support United no matter how shit they are, I will continue going to games and cheer them on. Hopefully the feeling will get to me later today when I’m at the pub with my friends. It’s a different feeling going into the game without being nervous, if we win it’s gonna be amazing and a big victory for United, but I’m realistic and I’m just hoping for the best 🙉

It would be sooooo good seeing some proper football tonight so fingers crossed but I’m prepared for the opposite as well.

 

Solskjær in

Manchester United, the only football club in the world with 1 billion managers..

To have ‘Solskjær in’ as a header is ridiculous, but necessary. I’m gonna try writing this blogpost without too much swearing, but I can’t promise you that. We lost against West Ham and we’re all f… frustrated about the result. Or lack of results to be more correct.. BUT- if you seriously want Solskjær out now, IN SEPTEMBER, you have forgotten what Manchester United is all about. We all want to see the youth coming trough, we want the deadwood out, we want entertainment and good results. If you know anything about football or sports in general you also know taking over a team that was way over due date (Ferguson’s team) it’s going to take a long time building Manchester United up again. When 3 managers has tried and been fired after a short period you know Solskjær was put in a very tough situation. He’s still struggling with Fergies leftovers plus Moyes, van Gaals and Mourinhos failed philosophies, transfers and attitude with individuals and as a team. It’s not going to take one summer of transfers, it’s going to take YEARS! Are you in for that?

Top 4 is our best chance this season and I said that before the season started. I will also take many bad and ‘failed’ seasons if it means that Solskjær is rebuilding the team. It’s a progress that needs time.

Solskjær gets criticized no matter what he does and it pisses me off. He was too soft when I wanted every player to get a change when he took over, people was screaming that the deadwood had to go- and he did exactly that! Players that didn’t deliver and who fans were writing week after week wasn’t good enough are now cut in half. He’s clearly working on getting players out and the right ones in. What to I read now? That he’s stupid for letting them go. Jesus f… Christ. Lukaku was unprofessional, stated in his social media that he wanted to leave, didn’t show up for training, that – and with poorer first touch than me and not scoring goals which is he’s number one job out there – why should we keep paying him millions without any thing back? Do you really believe he would have fought out there on Sunday?? Not getting a replacement wasn’t the best but rather playing the youth than keep on having players that don’t want to be in the club here…?! You can’t win with these kind of fans. It’s totally normal to want your team to win and get results, but be realistic!

I wasn’t happy with the team Sunday and who Solskjær chose to start and to substitute is on him. I’m not trying to be naive and just support him, he needs to smarter with who he picks. Matic and Mata isn’t good enough but I guess he picked them for their routine. The ones that deserve to be yelled at after West Ham are mostly the PLAYERS! No passion, no desire. That’s on the players because they have fuck all out there. Solskjær doesn’t have the ultimate team yet so he has to try and fail with those he got. And it’s getting clearer and clearer who’s not going to be a part of the future of this club. Our biggest problem isn’t Solskjær, it’s the lack of quality in our squad. United doesn’t have the depth we need right now so there’s gonna be more disappointing results, it’s probably gonna get worse before it gets better.

I’m 100% behind project Solskjær and I got many reasons, the biggest is that he got a plan and he will do it in ‘United traditions’. I also believe the board has understood now that they need to back him financially and it’s not done in one transfer window, but he’s in his way making his own team.

Even if you are Solskjær out, a new manager wouldn’t fix a thing right now so instead of bringing more shit to the table, shut it and be patient.

I asked for your opinions on my Instagram and with over 10 000 answers(!) my head is boiling 😂 luckily, most of us do have faith in Solskjær  and I think it’s important to show our support. If you’re not able to travel to Manchester and support the team on Old Trafford, show your support on social media. It’s too toxic now and it will only make our situation worse.

west ham borte

Det ble en sliteseier mot Astana torsdag kveld, dette er et lag United skal vinne over uansett, men det ble ikke så lett. Jeg var overrasket over at Solskjær stilte med både Chong, Gomes og Greenwood fra start, men positivt overrasket! Samtidig forsto jeg at jeg måtte nedjustere forventningene litt. Som sagt, Astana er et lag United skal vinne over, både A-laget og B-laget skal vinne greit mot de. Men seieren satt langt inne og mange var misfornøyde med resultatet. Jeg synes det er litt urettferdig egentlig, jeg forstår frustrasjonen 100%, men når vi alle har uttrykt ønske at vi vil se unggutta spille og endelig får det så må vi skjønne at kampen ikke blir like lett! Hadde Rashford vært mer klinisk hadde det sett helt annerledes ut, men Greenwood- som har vært i klubben siden han var 6 år- avgjorde og sikret seier til United. Ikke noe er bedre enn å oppleve slike situasjoner og dette er en av grunnene jeg har stor tro på Solskjær. Han kommer til å satse på disse gutta og videreføre Uniteds tradisjon med å utvikle egne spillere.

I dag venter betraktelig tøffere motstand og med viktige spillere ute så blir dette en vanskelig kamp. Jeg er ikke sikker på seier i det hele tatt, skal vi vinne må United opp flere nivåer enn de var mot Leicester. Med Young fra start, Pogba og Martial ute så har jeg mine tvil. Vi alle hadde nok ønsket å se Greenwood igjen i dag, men det er helt riktig av Solskjær å hvile han. Han starter garantert på onsdag og det er alt for hardt å sende han ut i dag mot dette laget. Veldig fornøyd med at James starter, la oss håpe det går vår vei!

Uansett; there’s only on United!!!

 

A blessing in disguise

In my blogpost yesterday about our first game in the Europa League, I said that even though it sucks not being in the Champions League, it’s a perfect opportunity for Solskjær to start forming what he got into his own team and what will be the future for Manchester United.
9 changes in the team who played against Leicester and it surprised me that Greenwood, Gomes and Chong started. I was really excited about seeing them all from start, but also knew that with so many youngsters I couldn’t expect too much.

For the young boys it’s important that they get as many minutes as they can, they need to start getting comfortable playing for the first team, getting used to play against tougher teams. I love their hunger and passion for the game, but we need to remember they are young, this is new to them. It’s normal to make a lot of mistakes and it’s so important that they dare to do it as well. Solskjær knows this and it’s one of the reasons I love him as our manager. He will focus on youth and United’s DNA. It will be a bumpy ride with ups and downs and we all need to accept that and trust Ole and give the players our support. We have all heard the legendary quote ‘you won’t win anything with kids’
Yesterday Greenwood in an age of 17 scored the winner goal. There is a unique feeling when a kid from United gets into the team and makes it. I believe we will se a lot of that from Solskjær and I can’t wait!

It wasn’t a comfortable win at all. It’s the same thing we’ve seen all season, United are the best team and have a lot of chances but just don’t score. In the start it’s entertaining but then it gets very frustrating especially when we have been punished for it so many times. Rash wasn’t clinical enough but that’s football sometimes. When I saw the start Xl of United I knew it wasn’t going to be easy- but I did expect a win! 100%

So many are not happy about the game and I do understand the frustration- we all felt it!! But again it’s margins against us, if we had them with us we would have won 4-5 -0 and it would be a perfect game and the players would have been heroes. People have been screaming that they want the guys to start games and when they do it’s wrong. So it’s back to internet abuse of a 21 year old academy player. I’m getting closer and closer every game to give up Twitter and Facebook 😂 thank god my boyfriend and my best friend are football SMART and not just ‘fans’ so we can have a decent conversation about United. I would have lost it long time ago if not 😂

It started as a game we controlled and it got tough, but United kept attacking and a kid that’s been in the club since he was 6 years old scored and United won. F… freaking fantastic if you ask me!

First game in the EL

FC Astana.. what do we really know about this team? I have to be honest, I haven’t heard about them until now. Typical Europa League 🙉 I’ve said it earlier, we don’t deserve being in the Champions League right now. Our team is simply not good enough! And watching PSG – Real Madrid yesterday made that even clearer. It sucks, but I’ve had too much pain the last years playing against the big teams. We had that night in Paris, which will be one of my favorite experiences, but after a short time in heaven, Messi brought us all back to the ground. Messi vs Young was painful to watch. So yeah, FC Astana it is 😂💪🏽

The buzz is gone, we have won Europe League and it was fun that season, but now..? Not so much. But it is a perfect opportunity for Solskjær to use his highly talented youngsters! So I’m looking forward to see the boys tonight, I know they are hungry for playing so hopefully it will be an entertaining game!

Vegan makeup

                                                                                                                  I samarbeid med Lyko 

Til å være opptatt av sminke og skjønnhet så blogger jeg veldig lite om det, rett og slett fordi det er så ekstremt mange andre som gjør det og jeg skiller meg ikke akkurat ut på det området. Jeg tror jeg har sminket meg likt i nesten 10 år nå og det kommer nok ikke til å endre seg. Selv om jeg liker å prøve nye produkter/farger osv så lander man til slutt på produkter man liker best og holder seg til det.

Grunnen til at jeg lager et eget innlegg om dette nå er fordi jeg ENDELIG kan komme med et bra tips! Jeg har vært veganer nå i 5 år og den endringen førte også til at all rutine jeg hadde rundt sminke og skjønnhet måtte endre seg. Jeg vil ikke støtte eller bruke produkter som er testet på dyr eller som inneholder produkter som er testet på eller kommer fra dyr så derfor så utgår merker som for eksempel MAC nå. Så disse 5 årene har jeg testet og feilet litt og har ennå ikke funnet alt av mine favorittprodukter (kom gjerne med tips til meg her), men som sagt- endelig- har jeg funnet noen BRA sminkebørster. Her er jeg veldig kresen siden dette er et produkt jeg bruker daglig og nå selger Lyko.no eksklusivt ett nytt sett med børster fra Luxiebeautynordic.

Mine krav er enkle; de må være myke mot huden og ikke røyte- og selvfølgelig 100% veganske! Disse er nettopp det og de kommer i en egen boks som er lett å ha med seg i vesken og også fin å ha fremme på badet.
