Manchester United this season 2017/18

This season Manchester United began with a flying start.

They look good in ALL departments. Mourinho has done his job well.

One player I want to mention is Nemenja Matic. He is the key to the team in my opinion.

He added steel to the midfield. He replaces Hererra and Carrick to hold the ball in the middle of the park. He let Pogba and Mkhitaryan roam freely. He tackles the opponent in front of the 2 centre-backs.

The other player worth mentioning is Antony Martial. He is a supersub deployed when MU wants to kill the game after a narrow 1 goal lead. He is very different from Rashford. He is slower, but his presence after the 70th minute when opposing defenders are used to chasing Rashford (and tired by this time) will make an impact. Defenders will be confused when he comes in. Much like Ferguson did when he replaced York and Cole with Solskjear and Sheringham.

Let us enjoy all the Manchester United games.

BPL Prediction for 2017/18 Season

Last season BPL position (May17) is as follows:

Chelsea, Tottenham, Man City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Man Utd

This early season prediction is as follows:

Man Utd, Man City, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool

As usual, my prediction is going to be wrong anyway. But as a football pundit wannabe, I just list the prediction based on my observation.

Will renew prediction in January 2018.

Let the season begin

Setting priorities in life

To a company, you are just an employee.

The day you resign, your work cubicle will be replaced. Your absence will be missed for a day, then the company forgets you. They went on to make their money for they need to, and they have no time to grieve because the expectations they have to fulfill.

This is why, DO NOT MIX WORK with FAMILY. Do not take your work home, cast your family aside and forget about giving time to your children. Because in their hearts, you are never replaced. Because when you are gone, everyday you will be missed. If anything happen to you, it will be your family and close friends crying like crazy for you. Because to them (even though you are one person) you are their world.

So reset your priorities. Be a good worker.. but be a better father/friend/son.
