Dan, Crewe: Around 80 of us left Crewe on two coaches to get to Old Trafford for one of the biggest nights in football history. My daughter's football club, Crewe FC, had arranged the tickets and coaches, resulting in the majority of her under-9's team sharing the experience. On arrival we walked towards Old Trafford, a ground I had been to many times as a Manchester United season ticket holder. The hustle and bustle, as well as the general buzz around the place, was comparable to a United matchday. The players came out of the tunnel to one of the loudest noises I have heard at a football match - it was deafening! I have never been in a crowd that has sustained a constant noise for so long, I kept thinking 'this atmosphere will calm down in a minute' but it didn't, it was phenomenal. The whole experience was extremely special.
