Q. Bidhyut, so which club do you support?

-Every time this question strikes me, the answer is always the same. There is no thinking twice as I can practically name Manchester United more than a 100 times here. My love for them started in the mid-2000s and since then I have been an avid football fanatic.

Q. What’s the backstory to your love for Manchester United?

-Each and every fan will surely have a back story involved in which they state why they started to fall in love with the club. Mine is no different but the reason I started following it was that of my neighbor, then a strong Arsenal fan. After all, you could find many of them post the “invincible 2003 season”. My eyes lit up watching when the 49-game unbeaten streak was broken courtesy Rudd Van Nistelrooy and Wayne Rooney. After that game I realized that I have found a club which matches my traits – Aggression, Determination and the never give up attitude. Since then I have been awed by the brilliance of our former manager Sir Alex who is arguably the best Manager this sport has ever witnessed.

Q. What’s the backstory to your love for Manchester United?

-As days pass by I tend to become a staunch supporter of my club legend Eric Cantona’s words- “You can change your wife, your politics, your religion, but never, never can you change your favorite football team.”
