For my son’s eleventh birthday I was lucky enough to get tickets in the Stretford End at Old Trafford for Man U versus Real Madrid.
To me the “Theatre of Dreams” was just a naff marketing concept.
I was wrong! This was an amazing experience.
To be part of a seventy thousand strong crown cheering and disbelieving at the same thing at the same time is an experience I have never had. I have been to both rugby and football internationals before, but this was just a totally different league.
The tickets were pricey, but to have memories of that for me and my boy, they were worth every penny.
