My name is CJ and with the American Red Devils I will be covering a wide variety of United news and I look forward to being able to share my love of the club.
I am a Manchester United man through and through, however, growing up in Ohio, European football was not the most talked-about sport.
How I Became and Manchester United Fan
My love for the beautiful game and the Red Devils started because of Chevrolet’s Manchester United commercial. The commercial began with children all across the world that wore the Reds’ kit and said, (in multiple languages) “I play for Manchester United”. After each kid restated that they play for Manchester United, Wayne Rooney walked through the tunnel at Old Trafford and stated that he “plays for you”. I was hooked and from that moment on, I began to ‘play’ for Manchester United.
My love for the club grew in future years and the club became a part of me. Specifically, I followed the Wayne Rooney approach to life: giving maximum effort in any task I faced. My hometown began their club (Football Club Cincinnati) in 2015 and my passion for the beautiful game grew as a result. I genuinely enjoy the sport for everything all that it is. For me, football is peace and passion.
Being a ‘United Fan’ is more than buying a new kit each fall, but rather giving your best effort in the same fashion that Rio Ferdinand gave to the club every match. United is founded on respect, love, and passion.
Looking to the future of the club
I believe that this is a great time to support Manchester United because, despite the recent injury woes and losses, the club is at a turning point. I am excited to watch the newer, younger United rise to back to glory.
For Fans, by Fans. Glory Glory Man United.
