LIVE THREAD - USA pre-season tour: New England Revolution vs Manchester United

Ashley Young will wear the Manchester United shirt for the first time tonight.

Manchester United football is back! Sort of. The Reds kick off their pre-season tour through the United States with a friendly versus the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer (MLS). It will be the first opportunity for United supporters to see Ashley Young in action as the newcomer is slated to start in the match. Join us below for some United banter in this live thread: we can discuss the match, the upcoming season, and the craziness that is the transfer window - including the rumor today that United officials are in Milan to discuss the possible transfer of Wesley Sneijder. It's only an exhibition but it is United football - which we have not seen since the end of May. Enjoy!
