Down And Out

I felt so miserable this morning when I woke up and checked the results for the Champions League football matches on TV. My team, Manchester United will no longer be playing any part in any of the European matches for the rest of this season.

Not only did they fail to reach the knockout stages for the first time in 10 years, they also lost out on a place in the UEFA Cup after they finished bottom of the group. It's really embarassing and their whole European campaign was horrible. Poor home form, lack of goals, lack of penetration, lack of creativity, lack of experience...all these contributed to a disastrous European campaign that will cause great ramifications to the club.

The midfield needs urgent beefing up if United is to have any chance of getting out of the doldrums. Already 10 points adrift leaders Chelsea before the midway point, it looks like United has a lot to do if they are to reclaim the title they last won in 2003. United's inability to score goals and play attractive attacking football like the way they used to overrun their opponents was evident quite some years back and it has only gone downhill since. Is this really the end of a glorious era under Sir Alex Ferguson? I believe that only good can come from this. This will really be a kick up their backsides and hopefully, they will wake up from their dreams and perform the way we know they can. That's all I'm asking.


  1. yup, my sis was grumbling about this sad(not!)

    but remember this:
    you will never walk alone...
