Canaries devour prawn sandwiches

As part of my 30th birthday present back in August (hindsight and all that) I was presented with a VIP matchday experience ticket for Old Trafford. The brother and myself chose Norwich at home just before Christmas as the game we would go and ‘enjoy’.

  You might think I regret the decision and would swear off going to another game ever again. You’d be wrong.  Despite the humiliation, the side to side football and Phil Jones I was intoxicated and not just on the £6 a bottle Asian beer. It was a truly wonderful experience and something that unfortunately the League of Ireland cannot compete with.

  The standard of football and entertainment on show wasn’t the main attraction, obviously, rather it was the sheer historical significance of the place.

  Maybe VIP Matchday experience is not for me as I’d rather be amongst the vocal support (of which there was a lot) but it did enable me to meet United ‘legends’ Ben Thornley, Dion Dublin and Fred the Red.

  I can only assume the other United legends were too embarressed to be there.
