I ticking off one of the sporting musts on my bucket list (well, sort of) by heading down to Sydney later in the month to watch Manchester United take on the A League All Stars.
The withdrawal of Alessandro Del Piero and Shinji Ono has taken some of the gloss off the occasion but it will still be great to watch a team as talented as Man United close up.

But it will be a big thrill to hopefully see the likes of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney in action from 20 rows back at ANZ Stadium on July 20.
