#30 – Glory Glory Man United

Music plays a very big part in sports, I think. I’m a big fan and follower of European football, so I know many clubs, if not all, have their own songs which are played during matches, or sung with gusto by the tens of thousands of fans who flock to the stadium to cheer their favorite team to victory. Some have become anthems for the club, almost as good as their identity. My favorite team is Manchester United, who I’ve supported since I first saw one of their matches, and played with them as my team in a FIFA PC game. I love researching on them, and very rarely miss a live match on television.

Glory Glory Man United is one of the songs that every Manchester United supporter will identify with and sing with pride. It’s one that’s played over the PA system at the Theater of Dreams, Old Trafford. Its lyric has some of the legends in the club’s history. I love the song because of the passion behind it, the love for the club and a memory of the club’s glory days as well. The club is in transition nowadays, and not as ruthless as history shows them to be, but loyal supporters know it won’t be too long before those days of old return. It’ll always be GGMU. And the Red Devils will continue to march on.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Our baseball fans here in the United States don’t have team songs (that I know of). I listened to this song and immediately recognized the tune for our “Glory Glory Hallilujah” and what also sounded like portions of”Calendar Girl”, a U.S. hit of the early 1960’s. And, at the end, well, I knew why they picked these songs. How rousing! I have a big smile on my face to start the morning.
