Get well soon, Darren Fletcher!

Misty watercolor memories...

Soccer - UEFA Champions League - Group C - Manchester United v Benfica - Old Trafford

The Spoiler isn’t lucky enough to be friends with any real footballers but if we could be friends with one, then Darren Fletcher would be pretty high up the list of potential BFFs.
