fun. A lot of the people who go there are ex-pats who grew up in Manchester but live in Chicago now. Hearing their stories of supporting the club and sharing their passion is a special experience for someone who wasn't fortunate enough to grow up that close to Old Trafford.
How often do you get to Old Trafford and which is the best game you've attended?
I try to make it over from the US every two or three years, which means my next trip should be coming up fairly soon! When it comes to the best match though, it has to be Liverpool in March 2008. Wes Brown, Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani scored the goals as United claimed a 3-0 victory. I'll always remember Nani doing his signature celebration, the somersault, right in front of the corner I was sitting in. That was a special moment. To be in the stands at Old Trafford and watch your club crush their biggest rival? Nothing can compare to that.
When have you been happiest in all your years of supporting United?
The nineteenth league title just edges out the 2008 Champions League final for me. I'd love to say the Treble, but I was still quite young in 1999 and didn't fully grasp how monumental the occasion was. Winning that nineteenth league title was just such an incredible moment. The match against Blackburn was actually the same day as my graduation from university. As soon as the final whistle blew, I sprinted from where I was watching the match to my favourite pub, which oddly didn't show the match. I sat there all day and drank three bottles of champagne to celebrate in a state of euphoria. I skipped my graduation, but that didn't matter. United now had a record number of league titles, one more than Liverpool... I couldn't focus on anything else. Pure bliss.
