Ugly scenes returned to the Theatre of Dreams following the match between United and Liverpool….
The memories of a seven year old child normally last a lifetime as Manchester United supporter Jonathan Howcroft can testify after meeting one of his childhood heroes thousands of miles away from home. Denmark international Jesper Olsen spent five years from 1984 at United winning an FA Cup in his first season, before settling in Melbourne with his family following a serious injury which forced his retirement in 1992.
The Premier League fixtures were realised today and the champions face newly promoted Birmingham City at the Theatre of Dreams on opening day. The second game of the season is a visit to Burnley’s Turf Moor, another newly promoted club just three days later. Their first clash against any of the other ‘Big Four’ is on 29th August against Arsenal at home before the return fixture on 30th February at the Emirates Stadium.
