Manchester United is in the Boston area to battle the MLS's New England Revolution tomorrow, as part of something called the World Football Challenge. Man U's playing a bunch of MLS teams on a summer tour.

Boston undoubtedly brings Britons several unpleasant memories, so Man U decided to head to the one place that make them feel at home: Harvard University. Now, perhaps they're big fans of The Social Network and wanted to see where the film took place. (They actually filmed the thing at Johns Hopkins, but I digress.) Maybe they wanted to throw down with countrymen James Wood and Niall Ferguson.

But most likely, it seems that Manchester United wanted to hang out with folks who know their pain, starchy types that spend all their time ranked number one, but lose when it counts.
