I cannot remember well when was the last time I enjoyed watching Manchester United—perhaps the opening game of the season when the team crushed Chelsea by four goals. But today’s derby spoke miles about the team.
There are only so many times in my life when my heart pounded like that. I think I could actually hear my own heartbeat during that passing minutes. As the referee went to the VAR screen, looking whether a penalty should be given or not.
And it was given. And it was converted.

Selama waktu-waktu terakhir, khususnya ketika Manchester City telah keluar dan berganti status dari ‘tetangga berisik’ (noisy neighbors) untuk menjadi juara Liga Inggris beberapa kali.

This is a day that we don’t really want to see, but still inevitable anyway. Ryan Giggs, a long time servant and one-club man for Manchester United, has announced that he is leaving the club of his home since 1987. The legend is leaving the club that has made him a legend of history.
