Wouldn't you just love it?
ItÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢s right up there with going to the dentist or going to visit the in-laws on Boxing Day, yes itÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢s that time of year again ÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ time to go to the so called Theatre of Dreams.
You know the place we all least enjoy going in the Premiership.
And you canÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢t be a spring chicken if you were there last time we won, yes way back in 1972, when Supermac and Bob Moncur were pulling on a black and white shirt and hippies were popular (probably).
Because thatÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢s just it, isnÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢t it?
None of us young guns know what itÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢s like to see those smug smiles wiped off the faces from all those buses that have made the journey from Torquay, West Yorkshire, Newport, Milton Keynes, Tokyo, Mars or Pluto, before it was wiped off the Solar System that is.
Of course we can remember the wins in the semi-finals when Big Al done the business then said: ÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã ÂOld Trafford hasnÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢t heard noise like that for a while.ÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬?
But as memorable as those days were, it wasnÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢t beating Man United was it?
And in the mean time apart from the odd draw and when Rob Lee was decapinated by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer just as he was about to score the winner in 1998, United have suffered some awful days out in the North-West.
If it hasnÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢t been Keith Gillespie, itÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢s been Andy Cole, if it hasnÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢t been Cole, itÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢s been Wayne Rooney and so on and so forth.
So is our luck about to change?
Well that really is a question, there arenÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢t too many that would put their mortgage on it thatÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢s for sure.
On the plus side we can go there on the back of a two-game unbeaten run and with Oba Martins hopefully going into the game with some confidence after the two goal blast against Levadia Tallinn.
OK, heÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢ll do very well to repeat the trick against Man U but we can always hope canÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢t we?
And one thing that is for certain is that the travelling Toon Army always beat their extra special high standards when it comes to visiting Old Trafford.
They can turn the volume up on the speakers full blast to try and whip the Torquay faithful into a frenzy but for some reason the Toon fans always drown out the home crowd.
As one great philosopher once said: ÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã ÂIÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬Ã¢ÂÂ¢d love it, if we beat them, love it!ÃÂ¢Ã¢ÂÂ¬?
