A Man U. Manifestation.

Finally, the Reds from Manchester once again take on our Bianconeri from Torino under the lights at Old Trafford. In what has become an evenly tallied encourter since their very first European competition tilt in 1976, both clubs have gone on to enjoy five victories apiece, respectively. Now obviously this match isn't going to tip that scale in any one direction being a friendly and all, however you can imagine our veterans; Nedved, Del Piero, Trezeguet, Camoranesi, and Buffon, still feel a noteworthy sense of gratification and vindication on the eve of this one.

Some pictures say a thousand words.

The point I'm trying to make is a simple one. We're back where we belong, squaring off against the best Europe has to offer. Pre-season friendly or Champions League Round of 16, it doesn't matter. We are a force in Serie A again, Calciopoli is far behind us, and we should thank only those players who stood beside us for it. Grazie Ragazzi!
