United fans turn out in numbers to celebrate 50 years in Europe.

Despite my reservations about the timing of last nights game between United and that select Euro XI, the game passed without incident and to their eternal credit Reds fans filled Old Trafford to near capacity. As commentators put it, no other club in Europe could have put on such a show and with so many fans turning up for what was a friendly, such is United's pulling power. David Beckham got a very special welcome at half time, despite being injured, the former United star and England captain was clearly touched and delighted to be back at the club where he made his name and learnt his trade.

A lot of money was raised for good causes, all from the pockets of United fans, as an added bonus Scholes who's in the middle of a domestic suspension got a good run out and the Reds won the game 4-3, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring the goal of the game with a stunning free kick.

The evening was a total success.
