That's Nax on the right.....
Hey, take solace in the fact it was way worse over here (still is).Yeah, I remember a school mate got really annoying when Brøndby came from behind to beat Bayern 2-1 in Parken.
Man U beat them 1-6 or something, and it kicked in an awful period of United-mania. Probably worse in Denmark than anywhere else, save for Norway (they are famously anglophile). I can still hear the TV3 announcements ... "tonight, from the Theatre of Dreams blah blah blah". Of course, only one game could be shown tuesday/wednesday and it didn't matter if Fiorentina/Bati/Rui met Barca/Rivaldo in another group, it had to be Man U v Panathinaikos or whatever.
Back in the days of tube TV where you could really smash them.Hey, take solace in the fact it was way worse over here (still is).
If you like football a football here, people assume it's either Man Utd or Liverpool. That's it. Chelsea? You weirdo. Italian club? Now you're just being a prick.
I was in the army in 98/99 and one of my superiors - a non-uniformed non-commissioned officer - knew I was an Inter fan so he told me to go over to his place to watch the game over some beers. He was a massive Man Utd fan and he told me when the team scores, he regularly jumps up, runs in front of the TV and celebrates like a lunatic. I politely declined...told him I'd feel bad if Man U scored and I had to put his head through his own TV.
That was one of my most traumatic memories as an Inter fan.Was it the first leg at OT when we conceded 2 identical goals ? Beckham crosses, Yorke heads in..
At least that Man U side went to eliminate juve afterwards in Turin in such an epic match. And obviously did a Treble, though fortunate in the final against Bayern.
Solskjaer, Berg, Ronny Johnsen (spelling?) must've played a part. Tore Andre Flo was big at Chelsea too.
