When the health crisis first really hit England in March it was unclear how long a break we were in for.

United were in fine form – but in the ensuing months, football has taken a backseat.

This month it appears as though we may finally get back up and running again, although it will not be football as we know it.

Games behind closed doors can be a miserly experience, football is not the same without fans, but it far is better than not having it at all. 

We had a taste of it against LASK. While that result went in our favour, the spectacle of United taking on a home team backed by their raucous crowd was ruined.

Providing the Premier League get their testing right and there is a willingness from the players to play on ‘as normal’, it will be good to have football back in some form at least.

Whether this will result in wins and snatching fourth spot for United, who knows, but it is positive to have the opportunity to compete again.

These are small steps which may also end up with the resumption of the FA Cup and Europa League, and two trophies for United.

Thank you
