    Vincent Kompany leaving Man City after 11 seasons. Not really a surprise, but I still sorta feel this is a season to soon.

    Edit: Oh, he is going back to his roots, as Player-Coach Since that is in the Belgian league I guess (almost) nobody on this forum will ever hear from him again

    One of the best BL seasons in years. It was important to win (even though it was the 7th in a row) considering it was Robbery's (and Rafinha's) last season with Bayern. And all they had to do was to avoid a defeat at home so it would have been tragic if they had failed. Robbery scoring in their last home game was magical aswell, Ribery's goal was a beauty aswell.

    Really surprised that Leverkusen got a CL spot, they started the season horribly. If they can keep their players they have for sure quality, I thought they could be our biggest threat this season.

    A lot to be figured out for the incoming season but the next one could be a really interesting one for Bayern considering the freshed up roster.

The first soccer game I ever saw was United vs Tottenham in 1999 because one of my British friends was a United fan. He was over, and didn’t want to miss the game. He gave me the entire context of why that game was so important. From that Beckham goal to edging against Hot Spurs, to that Scholes goal in the Emirates Cup final, all the way to the famous words ‘Soljahr has won it!!’ To me, it was the greatest story ever told. All I’ve known since then is success, barring Mourinho’s incredible Chelsea roster. I remember the days of when there were murmurs of Fergie stepping down, and also the day we finally got it right. There was arrogance in this soccer franchise, and romance beyond measure. I mean, we still sing Forlan’s name because he scored against Liverpool. He was a flop, but we adore him. Macheda is gosh knows where, but we still watch that goal against Vanilla over and over again. All of that was decimated when Fergie left. I still remember RvP’s words during that season under Moyes, he said ‘We will be back. You write this down, we will be back.’ I was convinced that we would, because all I had ever known was success as a United fan. We always come back, I thought. But as the years went by, we lost that. We lost our arrogance, we even became numb to it. I remember telling my friend when we went out against Sevilla that I just want us to be relevant again. I just want to have a big UCL finals, and for us to do something dramatic. Olle’s given us that, and more. Let us enjoy this moment, and let us sing and dance and love this franchise more than we have ever done before. I don’t know if McTominay or Fred or Sanchez or even Youngy are good enough, but they are at this franchise and something special is happening here at the moment. ‘This may, just be the beginning.’ Glory Glory Man United, Glory Glory to y'all.
    If this isn't a troll I must say I never thought you were a United fan.
