The Show Must Go On!

Dear Fellow Manchester United fans & Blog lovers, 

It pains me to write that this will be my last blog post for a very long time. That's write, your very own TRDS (The Red Devil Spot) is temporarily discontinuing from publishing content about a topic that unites us all - Manchester United.

At the time same, my sincerest apologies to y'all for not keeping up with  you recently. It feels proud to admit that we published 365 + articles over a period of 8 years! It's been a wonderful journey and we have witnessed some extra-ordinary achievements of this great club. However, lifting the Champions League trophy was one check box still unticked.

Let's start off by talking about how Manchester United has progressed ever since the Great Sir Alex Ferguson has retired. In short, we are still in a transition phase with Managers coming and as if Sir Alex's hair dryer is still operational. A total of three managers have arrived at the club. They survived an average of 18 months. Our current manager - Jose Mourinho has been the most successful so far winning three trophies out of the possible five.

A total of 18 players have been added to the senior squad with few of them even breaking the International and the British Club Transfer Record.
Despite the club's expensive signings, United has struggled after SAF's departure.
The club recently broadcasted that Wayne Rooney will be re-joining his boyhood club - Everton. It appears that the Merseyside born, ex club captain has started off just the way he finished his first spell at Everton. Wayne has already scored a dream (second) long range debut goal today in a friendly game against Tanzania's Gor Mahia. You can watch the goal below :-

  

With Michael Carrick announced as the next club captain, the club is in safe hands. Not only Michael offers solidity and a rigid structure to the midfield, but has out-lived his senior peers at the club.  Michael's fitness and contribution will be under a heavy scrutiny. The Englishmen recently played in his Testimonial game at Old Trafford. This year will be undoubtedly be his last club at the club and hopefully he can sign off in style with the Premier League Title in his hands!

During the 2017-18 season, the club has so far signed the 24 year old Belgian Centre Forward - Romelu Lukaku from Everton on a record £75m transfer (potentially reaching £90m including add-ons). 
The other addition to the squad has been the Swedish defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica at a fees of £31m. The 22 year old is 6 ft 2'' and a lethal centre back. He also has experience at playing at the Right Back position.

The Show must go on at the Theatre of Dreams, so here I am signing off for good.
