    Went to this last night - Manchester Utd vs Al-Hilal - a quite bizarre experience. I don't have any photos as such, unless you count stuff on my mobile phone. Also worth noting that there were way more than 20 expats in the crowd, but he may have been right on whether they were actually ManU fans or just the curious like myself.

    Actually, we missed the shooting into the sky bit - not overly disappointed with that to be honest...

    I hear they are concerned about holding a minute silence in memory of the Munich Crash 50 years ago at the man City v United game as some members of the crowd might disrupt it.

    I think that is why they sometimes opt for the 1 minutes applause instead.

    Mind you, 90 minutes of silence is a regular occurrence at Old Trafford these days
