The atmosphere against Tottenham Hotspur was impressive yesterday. At 2-0 down, we were repeatedly singing “We love United we do!” and this song was repeated with every goal we then went on to score.

This is good practice for Wednesday night, when we, the fans, have an important role to play. Stretford End Flags urge you to take your seats by at least 7.30 to get the atmosphere going, just as we were urged to similarly last year against Barca. Before that game, Busby Babe, Wilf McGuinness took to the mic ahead of kick-off. He left us roaring, taken over by the emotion and importance of the occasion. The atmosphere that evening was amazing, and we’d obviously be hoping for a repeat against Arsenal.

The East Stand will show the “Believe” mosaic again whilst the Stretford End will be showing a European Cup montage. They’ll also be nine flags waved by SEF members on the goal lines and in front of the North Stand.
