    Hi everyone, sorry this is looooooong over due - as are a few hundred more photo uploads and edits.

    But I've had a busy few months with assignments, exams, graduation and celebrations... and now job hunting!

    So anyway on the 24.05.11, it was Gary Neville's Testimonial match - aka Manchester United vs Juventus. As well as it being Gary Neville's final match playing for Manchester United, it was also special because it featured a lot of the class of '92 - a famous team who passed through Manchester United's youth ranks and went on to win numerous trophies. In particularly the match featured: Giggs, Scholes, Beckham (who traveled all the way from America!), Butt, Gary and Phil Neville.

    Normally I talk alot about the kit I use, but this time I just want to share the photos ;-) - Enjoy!

    CHECK OUT THE GUY WITH THE WHITE AND RED SCARF IN THE BACKGROUND - his expression creeps me out somehow!

    Manchester United Scores! by VinceChu89, on Flickr
    This was a lucky photo, the fan jumped up and framed the shot for me when Manchester United scored... unforturnately his right arm is blocking the ball in the back of the net!

    Juventus Score their Second Goal 1/2 by VinceChu89, on Flickr
    The ball went in, off the post. This photo shows the ball stuck to the post on it's way in... its too bad I lifted my finger off the shutter because I was disappointed with the goal, and didn't get the ball resting in the back of the net.

    You have confirmed my personal opinion of UK football,...which is why I NEVER waste my time on it!

    You should have stayed at home and shot photos of you interesting friends because they shine out of these pix and you would have probably got some excellent portraits,.....the girl is pretty and the lad in the blue shirt just radiates character!

    Bugleone - I'll try and upload my portraits of my friends later - do have some interesting portraits indeed, however I'll need to ask their permission first.

    Olli Thanks , I'll give it a shot :) Edit: had to think twice about why for number 19 :D haha
