A football (translation: soccer) fan’s guide to Manchester – Los Angeles Times

I’ve been a fan of the Liverpool Football Club fan since college, so I didn’t expect to be excited as I walked through the players’ tunnel at Old Trafford, holy ground for fans of rival Manchester United.

As the electric green grass of the pitch came into focus, I realized I had goosebumps. This is where George Best, Bobby Charlton, David Beckham and many other soccer greats played.

Don’t tell my fellow Liverpool fans, but I bought a souvenir at the gift shop.

If you grew up playing soccer in the United States and have followed the Premier League, the most prestigious British men’s soccer league, Manchester may be a winning destination.
