Declan Lynch: How Ferguson ruined my life with his curse
The longest unbroken tyranny of our time has come to an end but it is too late
THIS man ruined my life. I believe that his great and terrible spirit brought some darkness to my days, a strain of melancholia which has settled in my soul.
And it has not just been a curse in itself, it comes with the knowledge that if I had been a supporter of Man Utd rather than Liverpool, so much of that darkness would have been transformed into the most glorious light.
My sense of well-being would have been permanently lifted by the thought that no matter what happens, in the end everything always turns out fine. If you're down in September, you'll be all right as usual in May. In the end you win.
