The Red Devils of United Kingdom

Had you watch the match last Sunday between the Red Devils and Chelsea in the English Premier League? The Red Devils scored a goal within the first minute. OK! Now I sounds like I gonna blog about sport report. I am not gonna blog about what happens during the match and what is the final score but I am gonna blog about the Red Devils.

Again, this is my backdate post and suddenly I realised before this, I ever said want to post about this (click here) but then again, blame my worst sickness, "Short-Term-Memory (STM)". Not until last Sunday, accompanied TTM watched this match at my home together with my dad, while waiting for the second half match, I showed my picture to TTM. From there, I only realised that I never blog about this. And now, I'm taking this chance to bring you all to the Red Devils's stadium.

The Red Devils is the nickname of Manchester United and the name of the stadium is Old Trafford. During my study in UK, the uni organised a day trip of the virtual tour to Old Trafford Stadium, the home of Manchester United Football Club. So without thinking too much, immediately I signed up and registered for this day trip. My uni organised lots of day trip on every weekend for summer students like us.

I'm not a big fan of MU but to show to my dad, who is absolutely big fan of MU.
He never ever miss each and every MU match.


During the virtual tour, we were also got the chance to visit player's dressing room. This room contains a spa pool, six showers, two small baths and video facilities which can accomodate up to 22 players.

Before we ended the tour, we were giving a special certificate to serve a souvenir of remembrance for the visit.


"During this virtual tour you'll get a taste of the history of Manchester United, and move a little closer to understanding just why the club has touched the hearts of so many. Enjoy your visit." - by Sir Bobby Charlton.
