PRE-SEASON PREVIEW/ ABERDEEN MEMORIES FOR FRERGIE.




Forget Blatter, forget Madrid, its time for business. Our beloved club Manchester United will officially start their pre-season tours this weekend. Apparently, this week marks 25 years since Sir Alex won the European Cup Winners Cup with Aberdeen in 1983 against REAL MADRID and what better way to celebrate the feat is there than a fixture between Aberdeen and Manchester United. The game kicks off on Saturday at three o'clock British Summer Time. Live text commentary at http://manutd.com/ or the full game on MUTV. The club has also announced a pre-season friendly with Juventus at Old Trafford on August 6 but more importantly, fans will get to see the team show off the Champions League trophy and the Premiership trophy hours before kick-off. That should do our fans good as they missed out on an open-bus celebration in May when Rangers fans ruined the show. The pre-season tour in detail is defined by The Vodacom Challenge Cup in South Africa and an exhibition match against Portsmouth in Nigeria followed by the eagerly awaited Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Testimonial Match on August 2. The above mentioned Juve match will follow and then the Community Shield on August 10 and a week later, United will begin a second consecutive League season as Defending Champions. COME ON UNITED!
