Why do some of us care so deeply about 22 men on a grass pitch trying so hard to kick a ball in between 2 posts? The answer is because it's all worth it in the end. Glorious wonders such as your team winning a treble in stoppage time, a Macheda super "match winner" to help clinch a Title, or a crucial John Terry penalty miss in a Champions league final are rare moments of pure ecstasy, in a 10 month long football season. As you might've guessed, I am a united fan, but that's not the subject matter of this article. For a true fan following and supporting his favorite team (preferably not Arsenal or Chelsea), there is nothing worse than watching the team lose(especially after having a lead) on the weekend, and just a few things better than seeing it win. It can seriously be depressing to watch one's team being beaten by a rival, and even worse to listen to the rival team's bragging supporters. Though, winning or losing, the entire gamut of on field moments of skilled brilliance, soft through balls that swipe out the opponent’s defense, intelligent crosses, 90th minute super-saves, step-overs and tricks, clinical teamwork, classy goals and off field drama with transfer speculation, managerial and club problems and multi million pound signings, creates a great sporting experience. As time has gone by, Football has been blooming in popularity among people of all ages. However, there are some who merely start supporting a team because it is winning, or a really good player plays in the team. For example, When David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo left United, numerous Asian fans made Real Madrid their 'team'. These so called 'supporters' tend to 'follow the crowd' and claim to be fans just after watching a World cup. In June this year, a number of 'fans' chose to support Brazil purely because of their No. 1 ranking, and assumed that they would definitely win. They would have probably been better off consulting Paul the Octopus. Anyways, moving on...For those of you who ask "where has the football gone?" after the thrills, drama and fireworks of the world cup, you should know that football is still very much alive in The Barclays Premier League-where 'amazing happens'. They say that "everything you see is what you believe in" but in the case of the thrilling football leagues such as the Premier League, everything you believe in is what you will see. It's all happening in the league, with Man United leading the way comfortably with 60 points, and Man City and Arsenal close behind. Albeit Man City seem to be doing justice to the multi million pounds spent by their owner, Liverpool FC seem on track to re-enact their poor performance last season and fail to qualify for Europe, once again. With the silverware to be won and the new boys struggling to avoid relegation...there's all to play for. The upcoming months will prove difficult for the big clubs, with challenging Champions League/Fa cup ties, new signing through the transfer window and the inevitable Manager Controversies. With the battle for the crown, and the struggle to avoid relegation, this season promises to be as intense as always. All is at stake… Who will survive? Who will be on top at the end of the season? From here on, I foresee a 'three horse race' to the title with Man United, Arsenal and Chelsea at each other’s heels. Can you, Man U?
