    HUGS ARE BACK
    14 AUG 2017

    Hi everyone!

    I’m back, we are back :-). After quite a few weeks since the last entry, it’s time for me to restart writing, to spend some time on Sunday nights in front of my computer to tell you how the week has been for me. I’ve been doing this for five years now, during the season, and I find it very satisfying for two reasons mainly: it’s a quiet moment of the week when you can get some time to reflect on many things, and I also know that you’re looking forward to read this, or at least that’s what I get from your messages on the social media. Especially if the day has been like this one at Old Trafford. When you are working in the pre-season you know you must get ready for the official games. By August you can’t wait any more for the Premier League to start. The first of our list of fixtures was at home, in front of our fans, and we couldn’t have had a better start. The team worked harmoniously, we had some spells of great football and our shots on goal were good. Personally, I enjoyed myself on the pitch and I believe all my team-mates did the same. Some of them (Nemanja and Romelu) made their debut as Reds in the Theatre of Dreams and I’m sure they will always keep very nice memories of this day. Same as I do with my game against Cardiff, already a few years ago.

    It was a joy to have a game like this one, we needed it after failing to win the first title of the season in Skopje. I was really pleased to see our fans happy after the game, on their way home, and also your reactions on the social media, of course. I hope we can have many more games like that, even better if they are 37 :-). Obviously we know it will be complicated, because this is the toughest league in the world and every single game is a difficult test. These are the first three points, and they will be even more important at the end of the season.

    Also, the year is going to be specially exciting because we are back in the Champions League, and we don’t forget the two Cups, of course. That’s a lot of things to fight for, as usual, so we have to go little by little, stay together and work tirelessly. That’s how you get to your long-term goals.

    It works in almost every aspect of life. Over the last few days, many of you have asked me about Common Goal, the project we have just launched together with streetfootballworld. We have a very clear idea of what we want to do, and it’s something I strongly believe in: using the unique power of football to try to change the world and to help improve the lives of millions of people around the world. It may sound complicated, or remote, but we want to make it happen.

    I feel very optimistic about other colleagues getting involved worldwide. I will keep you posted. So far the idea has had a great reception. Thank you so much :-). If you want to learn more about this project, you can visit http://www.common-goal.org/‎

    It’s time to sign off. Not bad for the first day… ;-). Thank you very much for being there, I hope I won’t be too boring this season! :-).

    Have a nice week. Hugs,

    He called Angel Gomes his "former team mate" in his latest blog, apparently.

    Now I've just checked his blog and it says "team mate". I'm not sure if the 'article' I saw it in is talking shite or if they're right and it's been corrected.

    Probably nothing but if I'm going to have a mini heart attack, so are you, you fecks.

    I wonder if his replacement next summer (Özil) will provide blog updates every Monday morning. Or will it be selfies after victories and disappearing acts after losses?

    Gomes has not signed a contract yet, and according to his dad Barca could be in his plans. It would be a shame to let this happen again. He is here since he was 6 and the future looks very bright for this young man. He could be ready to play next season, if he signs a contract, and everyone is predicting he will go to the very top.

    Please don't let him go.

    Not sure why a young player would sign for Barca these days unless it's to be a starter. They have moved away from that.

    I like his blogs a lot, but I had a hard time finding the right thread to post this in. I found it quite funny, but also spot on. Sorry Juan.

    Not even acknowledging the game yesterday. There might be something up. Maybe he’s been told to keep quiet by the hierarchy.

    Has any players made a post in social media after the game yesterday?

    He did it previously. I just think most people think it is not the right time for posting something due to the backlash

    What backlash? Not from the fans. They will still turn up to games, buy merchandise and follow the official accounts across all different social media.

    M.E.N said Ashley Young did.

    Actually he might not have. Think it is just what he said after the game in an interview.

    Just the interview, nothing else. Was odd, there was a social media blackout yesterday, the official account didn't tweet anything after full-time.

    I would imagine the backlash they would get off fans made sure they didn't post anything online. Footballers are a bit dim, but not that dim.

    I doubt he’s been told anything, he’s a top guy and he understands when to wind it in. Lingard would still be out hobnobbing with rappers and promoting his clothes lines given the chance. Juan knows what’s up.

    I love how all the players are genuinely so impressed / proud of De Gea. I suppose only Barca's love of Messi can come close.

    All or lads realise just how important he is to us.

    What a super blog he posted! Not just his reference to the game but also adding other bits - really impressive person on and off the pitch.

    His attitude after the game sums him up - pure joy at winning, regardless of the fact he didn't play. He needs to be a United ambassador in the future - absolutely perfect role model.

    And on a non-football issue, that picture is so cute....
