WHAT HAPPENED? A celebrity football supporter with "sui" in his Twitter handle was predictably upset to learn that he had, in his eyes, wasted his time by visiting Old Trafford on Thursday. Speed, who has more than one million Twitter followers and 12.8 million YouTube subscribers, posted a tweet that garnered 80,000 likes within an hour.
