Stretford End Flags have urged people to get to Old Trafford early tonight in a bid to help the atmosphere get going.

The atmosphere at the Champions League semi-final last season was absolutely brilliant and Sir Alex Ferguson is hoping for more of the same tonight.

“Last year’s atmosphere was one of the great moments of my time here,” said Ferguson. “The atmosphere was fantastic that night against Barcelona. It was an amazing transformation when we scored that first goal against Tottenham on Saturday. We needed that support from the fans and they’re going to have to play their part again. They’re going to have to drive us. We’ve been through a hard, hard season and it’s coming up to that part of the season where we need everyone.”
