Hard to believe its 25 years ago. Funnily the older I get the less pleasure I get from looking backwards. I take little or no pleasure from reminiscing. I'm not sure why that is but I'd prefer if i got more pleasure out of it.
I still prefer making new memories rather than looking back on existing ones.
Never liked history at school either. Wiser now I realise that if you want to know what will happen in 50 years time you need to look back at what happened 50 years ago.
Very enjoyable time that for us united supporters around the turn of the millennium.

I love a bit of nostalgia and I’m honestly not sure I’ve ever been through as rollercoaster of emotions as I did that night of the UCL final. Happy memories for sure.

A bit like everybody (who was alive at the time) remembers exactly where they were at the time of the moon landing and when Kennedy was assassinated. United supporters also remember where we were the night we won the treble. Some folk have so many 'I' in a post that you might think life was all about them. ?.

I or I's?

Said before I was in the Nou Camp that night, great great experience, however it is history.

In the 70’s and 80’s, we were harking back to 1968, Charlton, Law, Best, weren’t they great, weren’t we great, while Liverpool hoovered up the trophies. Nice to look back on things like 99 but I look more at recent history now. Yes, learn from the past, that’s what we do but don’t live in it, otherwise we become what we were in the 70’s and 80’s and what the Scousers were from 1990 for 20 years.

The irony that the 2 most vocal ETH out voices leading for another new manager on here are spouting on about learning from the past and if you want to know what will happen in 50 years time you need to look back at what happened 50 years ago. I imagine they were both leading the SAF out chants in the 89/ 90 season too!

Yes ports.
Sack managers who decline like atkinson sexton moyes etc
If a manager is doing the right things and progressing then stick with them.
Eth has shown huge dis-improvement from a promising start.
I'm not sure if you were about in the 70s and 80s I suspect not but atkinson for example was a much loved coach who won a couple of cups but was never going to achieve long term. Much like houllier at Liverpool for example.
Fergie had a rough start and then a lot of people within the club could see he was doing great work behind the scenes.
If it turns out eth is doing great stuff we can't see it will be known by the people that make the decisions and he will have nothing to worry about will he? just like fergie and arteta for example.

And what makes you come to that conclusion Ken that I wasn’t around in the 70’s/ 80’s?!

17 Apr 2024 17:59:22
I said I suspect not I didn't come to any conclusion at all.
You don't come across as one of the older posters.

You could be any age it's was only relevant to the post regarding looking back 50 years as you only gave fergie as the example so either put the sexton era out of your mind like the rest of us try to ?. Or big Ron's fun house?
I enjoyed much of big Ron's time and we had some great wins but it wasn't a sustainable philosophy. He did sign my fav ever player so all is forgiven. BR7.
I just can't wait for the summer it's going to be carnage one way or the other.
I'm 100% in the camp of what we have and who we have on 31st Aug.
I hope we have a new manager and some players are gone and great new players are signed but if we don't it won't make any difference to me on going into every game hoping we win.
I still can't wait for all the carnage on here between now and then? it will be great craic.
