The huge crowd were then engrossed in the game against Arsenal, and the final whistle was met with euphoric roars as the Reds ran out 2-1 winners.
At the end of the match, Cole appeared on stage for the final time to award signed items to prize-draw winners and the lucky few in attendance whose tweets had been selected and broadcast live from Old Trafford at half-time.
Fans were still at the venue long after the final whistle, singing songs and enjoying the atmosphere of the event. "Watching it together with all the fans, it felt like Old Trafford in the Stretford End," said Gerry Herwanto, 29. "It was amazing, such an atmosphere, you had to be there to see it."
