Kick off

Old Trafford, Manchester, 14th August 2021

Old Trafford – Manchester Utd

They’d been preparing for this for weeks

Olympics – a mere distraction

to what lay ahead

The match – early saturday

the vendors – out with their home made goods – were there on Friday

the banner stretched across the entrance gate window

a statement of intent

red carpet laid out for the opposition fans

hoping they’d enjoy the spectacle – if not the scoreline
