Open Thread: Manchester United vs Swansea City -- Old Trafford say their goodbyes

Shaun Botterill

If you're not one of the fortunate 76,000 or so at Old Trafford, then join our open thread and your fellow Reds as two legends say their goodbyes and for the Premier League trophy presentation.

Today is a celebration for so much greatness: Sir Alex Ferguson, Paul Scholes, and the trophy presentation for Manchester United's 20th league title (13 for Fergie and 11 for Scholesy).

Today is also a day that will bring about so much emotion (and a wide range of it): nostalgia, sadness, appreciation, joy, and perhaps even numbness.

Today is a great day. Today is also closure (to an extent). Today is the day Old Trafford -- the greatest ground in the world -- says goodbye to the greatest manager of all-time and to one of the great players of the greatest club in world. Soak it all in and let out whatever you feel. Be sure to have some tissue ready. Oh, and don't forget, there's a football match today too.

Join your fellow Reds in pouring out whatever you need to in this open thread.

KO: 4:00pm BST, 11:00am EST | Old Trafford

TV: Sky Sports 1 (U.K.), FOX Soccer (U.S.)
