A MANCHESTER United fan has recreated Wembley Stadium in his front room after failing to snap up a ticket to see his heroes play tomorrow. Phil Spark brought football home with the installation of a turnstile, fake turf, stadium seats and a pie heater borrowed from a local chippy.
The 25-year-old surveyor from Didsbury, Manchester, even papered the walls of his home with match crowd scenes and installed a large flat-screen television on the wall. Spark will watch his team’s Carling Cup showdown match with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
He said: “This is the next best thing to being there. I was gutted when I couldn’t get a ticket for the game but I’ve spent the last few weeks making sure I won’t miss any of the action or atmosphere.”
Well at least this fan is not as crazy as one of Harry Potter fan: Brent Klovstad, 21 who spent $14,000 life savings to fly to UK just to stand outside the studios
