Born a 10 minute drive away from Old Trafford, there was no other option for Paul, it was and always will be United. He has been blessed to see United at their most successful - from the treble and Barcelona in 99, Moscow in 2008 and being at Wembley to soak in our last FA Cup final win, it has been some journey and hopefully we can get back to those heights one day. Held a season ticket until 2017 before work commitments made the trips to Manchester all the more challenging.
