    Nice idea that, better than the normal glamourised pre/post-season friendly.

    This should be good especially with Fergie in the dug out. Think i'll make it up for the game.

    Just decided to buy a ticket. A chance to celebrate a great player for us, last chance to see other great players, a great manager and a great team. Europa League trophy to be paraded around at half time too I believe?

    I'd have liked to get up to this but already had plans for this weekend.

    It's a shame a few of the 08 team couldn't make it would've been immense to see Ronaldo back in a Utd shirt, plus guys like Nani, Tevez, Anderson all made decent contributions that season.

    It would have been interesting to hear the reception Tevez would have got.

    Hostile would be my guess, didn't exactly leave on good terms.

    Sulked about not playing enough despite playing as much as Rooney/Berba then rejected us to join our cross City rivals.

    Loved him at Utd was bouncing off the walls when we got him, him leaving just after they announced Ronaldo was going was like twisting the knife in my chest at the time. Signing Owen as his replacement was a swift kick to the knackers just for good measure haha. I really hated that guy.

    It's on ITV. Rooney should be walking around these half of them retired years ago.

    The sad thing for Rooney is he was clearly trying.

    Carra's eyes lit up there with the chance to nail GNev haha.

    Phil Neville even broke out his double step over.

    Poor defending by Neviile for Keane's goal.

    That Giggs nutmeg on Carra was a thing of beauty.

    When does Carrick get his penalty or do they not do that in testimonials anymore?

    Scholes is still the best passer of the ball to wear a United shirt this season

    Very harsh on Pogba his passing is outstanding.

    I wonder if the Rooney stuff was a bit of an act or if he's got a genuine problem that he can't control. Would explain why refs rarely book him.

    Vidic looks like he just got back from the beach 10 mins before kickoff. He seems crazy tanned
