I'm Jon and I'm 20. I'm a massive Manchester United fan and follower of the game in general. I'm currently at University in the wonderful city of Sheffield in England where I am studying (in the broadest sense of the term) French, German and Catalan. Now that the Modern Languages alongside football are my passion in life. Although I have no idea where my degree will take me, all I know is I'm enjoying life, and writing here on B/R is a pleasure.
I have supported Manchester United since I can consciously remember- somewhere in the region of 1993-94 when I was four. My dad's passion for the game and the club have been forced (willingly, I might add!) upon me.
It is hard to sum up my passion for my club in words. They have given me some of the best nights of my life (Moscow 2008, regaining the Premier League in 2007) but also some of my lowest times (being knocked out at the group stages of the Champions League by Benfica 2005, FA Cup Final defeats to Everton 1995, and Arsenal 2005)
Football can change my mood in an instant, for better or for worse. But the game we all love can bring people together like nothing else.
Now that the Summer months and freedom are once again upon us I will have the opportunity to contribute regularly again on these hallowed pages. I hope you enjoy my work. Let me know what you think of it, anyway. I always want to improve in everything I do, so any pointers or advice will always be welcomed and greatly appreciated!
Finally, just a word of thanks to everybody in this World Football community here on B/R... it would be nothing without the hard work of so many people so give yourselves a big pat on the back!

My thoughts on the US Mens National Soccer Team and their huge upset of Spain:
Despite the departures of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez, Manchester United are yet to make their first signing, Here we take a look at why Sir Alex Ferguson chooses to take his own, sweet time.
Take a look, when you can.

P.S. Hope you get back on here to write again some time soon!
I've had a look at the story and tragedy of the greatest player that never lived. A player with all the ability to top Pele, Maradona, Di Stefano etc, but who had it robbed from him early on in his career. I'd appreciate it if you took a look and commented if possible, and don't forget to rate it!
