Los viejos siempre dicen que, los de antes, fueron tiempos mejores y se regocijan vociferando hazañas heroicas que sólo nos queda ver en vídeos de pobres colores. Así como ellos, cada generación está en la eterna búsqueda de la identificación, un júbilo único, de aquello que los identifique como una generación digna de envidiar por los que le siguen, buscando aquello que se sólo ella ha vivido y nadie más, en la búsqueda de un ídolo icónico al cuál recordar con nostalgia cuando los años marquen las horas y, entonces, poder contar hazañas heroicas y decir que, los de antes, fueron tiempos mejores.

While this piece, more general than usual, is not strictly to do with Manchester United, there are more than a few references to the club and its past and the overriding feelings of the write-up is one that'll surely resonate more with United fans than others. It is appropriate and topical, though not quite anything to do with the side this season and the title race, rather in reaction to the Premier League's sudden 'look at me' celebrations, looking back nostalgically at the best of the League since it started back in 1992; players, managers, even quotes.
