I make this exception for United
I understand that I said I won't write until my back has recovered. Yet the feeling is so strong that I can't find any other way to express it.
I make this exception for United.
We have had a frustrating campaign. Lots of goaless matches costed us the Premiership title, lack of quality back up players in the midfield made us fall behind Chelsea and Arsenal, and a season-long-unfit striker in the front broke our hearts again and again.
It has been disappointing for a whole year, and so was the last 120 mins. All United fans have been suffering from Glazer's takeover, and at last we even handed the FA Cup to Arsenal so easily.
I believe it's time for our young players as well as the veterans in our squad to learn that one must pay his price for not picking up the chances he has had. This year, we are passers-by to the silverware…but everyone should have realised that our young players are establishing their roles in the team, and I expect another ten years of Golden Era are coming.
Congratulations to Arsenal and their fans, and to everyone who enjoyed the most spectacular 120mins of Utd Football in years, gratefully.
