V: Conversation With Him

That’s one thing I know I did consistently today. I laughed hard and loud. Even the fact that I attended to customers back to back till about 3:30pm didn’t stop me. I found reasons to laugh at almost everything because I was super happy. The thought of having 2 work-free days did that to me plus, I was coming home! The journey home, however, was quite bumpy. I was about 30 minutes away from home at 7:00pm and already jubilating

I Remember When I was a Soldier

In his 1st season in charge at Old Traafford, Mourninho bettered the 7th place finish by a step: United finished 6th, but this was on the back of the League Cup and the Europa League – a title that took United back into the Champions League, a competition finishing 7th or 6th wouldn’t qualify a team for! Mourinho’s 2nd season saw the newcomers get knocked out at home by Sevilla in the 2nd round of the Champions League while playing the FA Cup final and finishing 2nd (4 places better than the year before) in the league.
