From one reds fan to another.

I’m in my 50’s. I remember the glory days. I’ve waited 30 years very impatiently. If you fast forward another 30 years and compare the likes of Mane to Souness’ comments now they will be chalk and cheese when discussing the trophy lifting day.

Why? Because mane, Gini, Naby. All took their mobile phones onto the stage. Why? What for? They missed out on an amazing moment. They will have their reasons so I cannot second guess.

I’ve just watched the Michael Jordan documentary. He was singled out as being so calm because he could live in the moment, the present.

Sadio my friend. You were missing out on being in the present by worrying about your phone.

I love Mane by the way. If you forced me to choose my favourite player he wins by a smidgen.

Whilst I agree to an extent they may have missed out on some of it, they were live streaming on social media which allowed a lot of fans to experience the celebrations and see what went on from the players perspective, with the stadium being empty and sensible fans following the request to stay away, it gave supporters a chance to be involved in some way and for the players to share the moment with the fans.

I was a bit worried about that too, but i think mane is a very quiet individual and could of been talking to family etc. I think they all have different ways of being in the moment.

But I’d agree regarding phones, It’s one of my biggest bug bares at stuff like concerts or matches. Never mind something as big as winning the title.
I think they feel a responsibility to put themselves out their for the fans and whilst it created great content I wish they just put them down that night and embraced it.

Mane is probably me favourite too. I wouldn't worry about the phone thing it is what many people have got into the habbit of using. Maybe he was recording or facetiming his family/ friends. I wouldn't do it but its their day they can choose to celebrate as they want.

As Souness said he was drunk as soon as possible after winning the trophy, Mane won't be doing that.

The lad used his phone to remember an amazing moment? I don’t see the issue, you can say ‘souness wouldn’t have’ vecause quite frankly we don't know. The lads doing no harm. Sometimes our fans seem to look for a reason to moan.

Lol 30 years ago a mobile phone was the size of a team bus and didn't do an awful lot. 😆.

Spot on, Sailor Jerry. IMO, Mane does not have an ill-willed bone in his body. The guy is super shy yet a complete lion on the pitch who takes no prisoners. Tho, it was not a good look in the moment BUT as you said, they guy has gone thru near impossible odds to be where he is and realize his dreams of playing football as a kid growing up in Bambali, Senegal so I can look past that moment, based on all the stuff we have come to know and love about him on and off the pitch.

It's the sign of the times but it's not for me. I can never understand when I see people at games or even gigs more concerned about getting the event recorded than enjoying and basking in the moment.
Its social media and all that goes with it. I'm not a fan one bit but I appreciate its here to stay and it does have it's good uses when used correctly.

Amazing moments will always be remembered tho. It's called television, been about for ages 😀.

Sailor Jerry. I’ve deliberately waited a few days post celebration as it’s not intended to be a negative. Just an observation.

You’re right it being a moan but not about our club or players. More about modern society!

I’ve turned into my dad without realising how!

IR like you, it is not something I would have done cos I'm old school like that but it is what it is, man.
