    Will United ever come to the States? I will go see then anywhere anytime if they come over here for a couple of games.

    It seems as if Chelsea are trying to take over the states out of the english teams.

    I just do not understand. I followed united for years since I was 8/9. then in 2004 I was so excited to immigrate to America because i knew they would usually come. Then they came a week before I came in philly where I reside right now and since then they never came ! :(

    I went to the game in Seattle when we beat Celtic 4-0 but they didn't come to the west coast after that.

    Saw them play in Phily and New Yawk in 2003. I in fact saw Ronaldo and Ronaldino's first games for United and Barcelona respectively....Well, I think I did.

    As I mentioned in the "I Don't Know Where To Post This" thread, a few of our guys will be in NYC in June.

    Tweety is putting together a charity match at Giant's Stadium in June, supposedly vs. the Red Bulls. Right now it looks like CRon and Giggs are signed up.

    The website has Rooney as well....Wish I could go, but I already booked an Oasis ticket in Manchester for June 7 and once I'm over there I'm staying for the month.

    Should be cool though, didn't know Tweety ever had that kind of pull in the locker room :D

    Re: Summer Tour 2009

    Asia is an important market for Manchester United, unfortunately for US based United fans.
    http://www.manutdexperience.com/en/
    The first stand-alone United Experience built was in China.

    I dont doubt United will go back to the US, it is probably part of their grand master plan for total world dominance. As to when, maybe next year. It seems to have been Asia, Africa, Asia for the last 3. North America may be in with a shout next time.

    Would love to see a reasonably full strength team go out for the MLS Allstar game as seems to happen with a lot of English clubs at the moment, and wallop them. Stop MLS gloating so much...

    I would love to see the likes of Macheda, Welbeck, James, Tosic, and Possebon, shitting on Donovan and company.

    Not during a World Cup summer... I think we rely too much financially on our presence in Asia for us to skip going there for the foreseeable future....

    Agreed! Until the US can generate scenes like these we'll be going to Asia, and rightfully so. Uncle Crippled Puss has to pay off the debt holders.

    The funny part is that most of their shirts are counterfeits anyway.

    Ronaldo can throw the fakes on the ground as easily as the reals.

    I've heard he prefers fakes as they're more perky.

    Though I would love to see United on American soil, there is too much money to be made in Asia for the club to go anywhere else. Asia appears to be soccer crazy at the moment, and United would be mad to not go there to sell kits and merchandise and spread their brand even further. Can't blame them, they have too much debt and need the money.
