A week today Manchester United take on Arsenal in the FA Cup quarter-final and Stretford End flags are encouraging fans to recreate something like the picture above.
For fans attending the game, bring your bar scarf and make a simple 2 metre (W) by 1 metre (H) flag or banner. These can be homemade using a bed sheet & paint, or a flag made of cloth or PVC.
Manchester United will play in the quarter-finals
Liverpool vs Blackburn Rovers
Bradford City vs Reading
Manchester United vs Arsenal
Ahead of United's FA Cup game against Preston on Monday, Louis van Gaal has claimed he hopes he can win the trophy for the fans.
It's always the same because you know the world is for the underdog and we have to play away under the same circumstances as at Cambridge or Yeovil, so it shall be very difficult.
If Manchester United beat Cambridge in the FA Cup 4th round replay on February 3th, they will play Preston/Sheffield United away.
Crystal Palace vs Liverpool/Bolton
Arsenal vs Middlesbrough
Aston Villa vs Leicester
West Brom vs West Ham
Bradford vs Sunderland/Fulham
Blackburn vs Rochdale/Stoke
Derby vs Reading
Preston/Sheffield United vs United/Cambridge
Paul Scholes has claimed that Manchester United could suffer against League One Yeovil if Louis van Gaal changes the team too much.
United were knocked out of the League Cup earlier this season by another League One side, MK Dons, after Van Gaal played a completely different line-up, largely relying on young players.
It has been over ten years since Manchester United last won the FA Cup and Louis van Gaal has claimed that whilst the league is the priority, he will be taking the cup seriously in the new year.
The league is our priority but the draw for the FA Cup will be made after this coming weekend's matches.
If Manchester United beat Swansea today, they will play against in the 4th round of the FA Cup.
Leicester City vs Manchester City
Tottenham Hotspur vs West Ham United
Stoke City vs Manchester United
Southampton/Sunderland vs Chelsea
Ties to be played week commencing 16th December.

When David Moyes hit out at the Premier League a couple of weeks ago, suggesting a "conspiracy against United" in terms of our opening run of fixtures in the new campaign (I think we all know that run now: Swansea, Chelsea, Liverpool, Palace, City), he may have been continuing a fine tradition of controlled paranoia which Fergie used to use as a tool for constructing that famous Old Trafford siege mentality.
If Manchester United beat Reading on Monday night they will face Middlesbrough/Chelsea at Old Trafford on March 9th or 10th.

A game against Middlesbrough or Chelsea awaits us if we can get past Reading tonight and thankfully we've had a lengthy rest following the exhausting game at the Bernabeu on Wednesday. You imagine we will see plenty of changes but with a squad as strong as ours we should have enough to deal with Reading.
Paul Scholes has reflected on his relationship with the FA Cup, looking at his first final against Everton in 1995.
United went in 1-0 down at half-time and Scholes was subbed on with 20 minutes left to play, but United failed to equalise.
In my mind's eye I can still see my miss in the late stages of the 1995 FA Cup final against Everton at the old Wembley Stadium.
In the FA Cup 3rd round United will face Accrington/Yeovil.
1. Last night was a typical of example of the unpredictability we now face as United fans with our team that saw nine changes from the weekend easily brushing aside Norwich. We dominated the game from start to finish and played some really good football, particularly in the second half. Ferguson has said that this season will be considered a success for Moyes if he wins just one trophy so it was important we got a result last night.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea have had disappointing weeks in the lead up to this game. United were robbed in the Champions League against Real Madrid, with Jose Mourinho conceding the best team lost, whilst Chelsea were outplayed and beaten by some Romanian team in the Europa League.
1. After Sunday's embarrassing derby day defeat against Manchester City, United needed to bounce back with a result against Liverpool last night in the cup. Having picked up just one point from our three tough games against Chelsea, Liverpool and City (something Sir Alex Ferguson has also been guilty of in the past, lest we forget), the doom merchants were out in full force.
You would imagine that Sir Alex Ferguson will channel all the frustration from Tuesday's unjust result against Real Madrid in to Sunday's Cup game against Chelsea. Our opponents also lost in Europe this week but their players seem far more resigned to losing than ours this season. Still, in one off cup games, with both teams having a point to prove thanks to the rivalry they've enjoyed over the past few years, you never know what could happen.
"We don't need to give away stupid plastic flags to our fans to wave, our supporters are always there with their hearts and that is all we need. Its the passion of the fans that helps us to win matches, not flags. Chelsea fans lack passion."
I'm sure at the time these words raised his legend status amongst his own fans, with Liverpool supporters despising the moden day Chelsea, as the two clubs repeatedly came to blows in the Champions League.

In his usual Monday blog, Juan Mata has spoken about the desire at the club to win the FA Cup this season, but won't underestimate Preston this evening.
All of us in the club are very aware of the good chance we have to achieve something great in this competition, and we will try to lift the trophy.
Louis van Gaal has admitted he has some concerns over the mentality of his players as they approach today's game against League Two side Cambridge.
However, the fact he has stressed the importance of not underestimating the opposition will hopefully mean the players take heed.
It's always tough to play against weaker teams because in the players' minds, it is a weaker team.
Darren Fletcher has spoken about the players' disappointment after losing 2-1 to Swansea at Old Trafford and being knocked out of the FA Cup.
"It's a really disappointed dressing room in there," said Fletcher. "It's a massive blow, let's not kid ourselves, this is a bad result.
