Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes joined Ryan Giggs and Phil Neville on the training pitch this morning as a new look Manchester United begins to take shape.
No more Jimmy Lumsden and Steve Round barking instructions at the players, instead it will be Manchester United’s famous Class of ’92, our most successful set of academy graduates.
As a fan, it feels like dreamland. As far as clubs getting a boost from a managerial change goes, this from United feels like a seimsic shift, the winds have changed direction, Winter has all of a sudden become Spring.
It’s because the club is in the right hands now. The power has been given to those who know the club inside out and what it stands for.
It's great to see Paul Scholes here at the Aon Training Complex today, assisting Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville. #mufc

I went to the Class of ’92 premiere in London earlier this season and brushed shoulders with Scholes, Giggs, Butt and the Neville’s on the red carpet.
It was a brilliant night out and their relationship as friends was so infectious in the questions asked afterwards that the audience all felt part of it.
The atmosphere on United’s training ground has been questionable this season but under the stewardship of the Class of ’92, it’s going to be the polar opposite.
