This is the good stuff in life. Keep soaking it all in.

Alex Livesey

For anybody wishing to discuss today's events -- the trophy parade through Manchester or Wilfried Zaha in a Championship play-off for promotion to the Premier League -- I thought I'd post an open thread. If you're going to the parade, we'd love to hear about your experience afterward. If you're watching on television, this is a good spot for discussion. Here's information on it from Manchester United's official website:

Old Trafford event
The parade will begin at the stadium with a send-off event in the forecourt area outside the East Stand. This event will commence at 18:00 BST and will be capacity-controlled so please arrive within good time to avoid missing out. The bus will then leave Old Trafford at 18:30.

Access
Fans will be directed to access the parade area from each end of Sir Matt Busby Way. The crowd barriers will be in place from 15:00.

Parking
Parking for parade visitors will be in N3. Any visitors for the Museum and Tour will need to park in N2.

Megastore
The Megastore will be open until 19:00.

Museum
The Museum will close at 15:00 with last admissions at 14:45.

Kick-off for Zaha's Crystal Palace versus Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium is at 7:45pm BST (2:45pm EST). The first leg from last Friday resulted in a 0-0 draw. The winner will face Watford at Wembley for promotion to the Premier League. Zaha picked up a slight knock on Friday but he's expected to feature tonight.
