United fans urged to shoot to win £1,000.....

If you're like me then you will have been in something of a daze following the events of last week; first we had the joy of knocking out Inter Milan in doing so progressing to the Champions League quarter-finals, but then just over 48 hours later we suffered the indignity of losing heavily to our biggest rivals Liverpool. The manner of that defeat has been hard to take, given the fans lofty expectations of this current United team.

Hopefully, all will come good as the season unfolds before us; next up it's Fulham and United will be expecting a tough game, before that and in a bid to ease the pain of losing to Liverpool we bring you some light relief and the chance to win £1,000 courtesy of LG's "Shoot to win" photo competition.

City of Angels Reds we are here!

I have submitted the photo opposite for the March competition, it was taken back in 2003 in the Los Angeles Coliseum, just after United had beaten Club America. There was no time to think about the composition of the picture, which captures the moment of victory. I like the sun shining across the image and the old fashioned floodlights in the background.

I'm in no way a religious person/nutter, but it could argued there' a degree of synergy with the banner message coupled with the fans arms pointing upwards, along with those flag poles which are also pointing towards the sky.

Two of my oldest United supporting mates are holding our banner aloft, sadly one of them is no longer with us as Peter B passed away last June. Pete was an author on this blog.

The competition runs monthly and I will submitting more United photographs over the coming weeks.
