When Manchester United won their 19th English League title two years ago, I had planned to get a jersey with the Champions 19 printed on it. But then after looking at the price, I balked out. This season with United winning their 20th English League title, I had the same plan as well and again in a sitting on the fence situation. Is the RM250++ shirt worth it?
In the midst of contemplating, I saw my Ferrari and Michael Schumacher tees which I bought at Sepang Circuit many years ago. That was the time when Ferrari and Schumacher reigned in F1. They were untouchable. Ahh fond F1 memories. I’m glad I bought those tees and I’m sure in years to come they will become even more precious to me.
With that I decided to get myself a Manchester United jersey. Moreover this one will be so much more memorable. It’s Sir Alex last win as manager of Manchester United!
My order took 1.5 weeks to arrive from UK. A little disappointed with the packaging. But then what’s important is inside…
Behold, I’m now the proud owner of a very precious Manchester United jersey. Over a decade of worshiping and it’s only my first ever Manchester United shirt. Hey hey like I always said… it’s never too late. 😉
This is Manchester United Home Kit 2012/2013 short sleeve shirt. I decided to get the real thing (read: men’s shirt) as oppose to women’s shirt. With regards to sizing, I’m a little confuse with their number but glad that I chooses S size because it fits me perfectly.
The moment I unraveled the tee, I squealed with delight like a happy girl eating cotton candy. Ohh happy happy happy. My endorphins – happy hormone lasted until the next day. Hahaha

Paid additional £6.00 for Premier League Champions 12/13 badges.
Champions 20 in gold. So cool!!! I’m in cloud 9. In total the shirt cost £63.20.
Now to answer the question: Is the RM250++ shirt worth it? Oh yeah. It’s so much more than that!!! 🙂
I also got myself a Manchester United street sign pin badge – Sir Matt Busby Way @ 91p. The street name where the Theater of Dreams aka Manchester United football ground is located.
Now if you would excuse me, I’ve got more shopping to do at United’s store.
