    Hmmm. I thought rugby was more popular over there.

  2. Helen A says:

    I’m definitely one of the best teams supporters. That is Manchester United! Going to the game. Much better organised than the Liverpool match which is during the week. Only disappointing thing is no fergie. Bit unfair that he was the coach when tickets were sold and now won’t be joining even though he is an ambassador.

  3. Aussie Chris says:

    Can’t wait! saw united last time they came and remember it like it was yesterday. Yes it’s a shame fergie won’t be there but considering the memories he has provided over 26 yrs I’ll let him off this time. Hopefully RVP will be there but I’d like to see Adnan get a run. To all the English fans you don’t know how lucky you are getting to watch the reserves and under 18s let alone the first team. Get out there and support the youth!
