    Scott thank you, perfect warm up!
    Sir Matt’s program notes– top,top class.
    Grew up listening to a 45 of the highlights of the Benfica game, words etched in my head for last 40 years, “Charlton, Best, Kidd and Charlton again.” Absolutely priceless footage of the Semi.
    March on heroes of today. UNITED ! UNITED! UNITED!
