Red conquers Everest

Has anyone at United, or any of the club’s achievements, ever inspired you when you are mountain climbing or working to rescue someone?
I have always been inspired by Sir Alex Ferguson for his outstanding leadership and I would love to lead on the mountain like he did in English football for the past 26 years. Mountain climbing is a bit like football - good leadership, team work and a little bit of luck are necessary for a successful summit.

TV commentators sometimes say a team “has a mountain to climb” if they are losing 3-0 or worse… what do you think about that phrase?
I think the phrase “has a mountain to climb” does make sense in that situation because it's not easy to score four goals and win unless magic happens on the pitch. Climbing mountains is not that easy either...
