Great to see Ryan Giggs putting in a man-of-the-match performance against Chelsea yesterday. The 35-year-old was making his 549th appearance for Manchester United and is set to reach the 550-mark if he plays against Wigan on Wednesday.
Ryan has agreed to meet us for another signing session tomorrow, where as well as more memorabilia from the 2008 Champions League victory, he will be signing some rare blue kits with badges commemorating the 40th anniversary of United's first European Cup win over Benfica. Only ten will be signed, so be quick off the mark to get yourself a genuinely rare item of memorabilia.
Sir Alex Ferguson was effusive in his praise for Ryan after the 3-0 victory. He told MUTV: "Ryan was fantastic. I kept him particularly for this game, I rested him. I told him two weeks ago he and Darren Fletcher would play against Chelsea.
"I thought this game was made for them, given Ryan's ability to hold the ball and beat a man in midfield with that left foot. Ballack couldn't live with him really. It could have been a mistake – it's very easy to make a mistake when you've got a squad of 23 players. Genuine mistakes of course because you want to pick a team that wins and the supporters understand that. But today it worked and I'm glad it did."

He loved the new images we have of him and we were only too happy to present him with a photo of him scoring the winning goal in Euro 2008 against Germany. We're sure he'll have it on his wall before long – and you can too. Check out our new Torres products; as well as the Euro 2008 goal, there's a great new photo of Fernando after scoring against Everton this season, plus we've reprinted the fantastic image of his first goal for Liverpool. It's a real favourite, and it seems we can't print enough of them.
We've also created a new range of limited edition signed away shirts and signed Champions League shirts. Fernando only signed ten each of these, so they are an extremely rare and collectable item of sports memorabilia.We've also created a new range of limited edition signed away shirts and signed Champions League shirts.
