Have a Blast With This Manchester United-Liverpool 360 Fan Pic

man united liverpool 600x369 Have a Blast With This Manchester United Liverpool 360 Fan Pic

Manchester United’s victory against Liverpool last week was memorable for a few different reasons — Daniel Sturridge’s first league goal for Liverpool, the return of Fabio Borini from injury as well as Manchester United’s convincing win despite the late rally by the Reds. One more reason it was memorable is that the vast majority of the 75,501 crowd that day were photographed using a hi-resolution camera that took a 360 degrees photo.

Whether you were there that day or not, the “360 Fan Pic” is certainly a lot of fun to zoom in to see if you can spot your mates or someone famous.

Who can you zoom in and find? In the expensive seats near the center of Old Trafford’s South Stand (opposite the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand), I found Peter Schmeichel, David Gill and a British TV actor who — I forgot his name — looks very much like Hugh Laurie (a few seats to the right of Gill).

Take a look and have some fun with this great tool.

  1. Tony Butterworth says:

    I found my parents and cousin.

  2. Tony Butterworth says:

    Isn’t that Fabio Capello also ? The guy from Elbow, Rowan Atkinson

    • The Gaffer says:

      It’s like playing a game of Where’s Waldo. I see Ian Ayre and Sebastian Coates in the crowd, near David Gill (to his left). But I haven’t been able to find Rowan Atkinson or Fabio Capello. Although one bloke in that area looks like Steve Coogan. The more I think about it. The bloke I was mentioning in the article is not Hugh Laurie, but I can’t remember what his name is. It’s bugging me!

  3. Tony Butterworth says:

    Is it Richard E Grant ?

    Not sure I can spot Gill but if you look just above the “D” of the word “Dreams” on the far side from the starting position, that’s Capello, and Atkinson is above the “S”

  4. Tony Butterworth says:

    It took me much longer than it should have but I finally found the players. I hadn’t really thought about how they are sitting right in the middle of the crowd.

  5. IanCransonsKnees says:

    They did the same at Wembley in the Stoke v Man City cup final. Cracking bit of kit.

    Someone on Google+ shared this with me — Fan Pics for all of the Liverpool games at Anfield:

  7. Tony Butterworth says:

    So where is David Gill?

  8. Tony Butterworth says:

    The player I was trying to figure out is Dennis Irwin
