Manchester United's 4-1 win at Swansea on Saturday suggests the team don't need a bonding session just yet.
But David Moyes' men still took to the city on Tuesday night for a team meal, and what an excuse it was to bring their wives and girlfriends out for all to see.
With speculation rife surrounding his future at the club, striker Wayne Rooney turned up with wife Coleen, giving no clues about his future at the club.

Rooney joined Moyes along with team-mates including Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Danny Welbeck, Wilfried Zaha and Tom Cleverley on Deansgate in Manchester city centre.
As the Premier League stars walked to meet their fellow United players, centre back Ferdinand was stopped by passers by, and even posed for a photo.
Chelsea boss Mourinho has already had two bids for Rooney rejected, but insisted his pursuit of the England man would not end.
Earlier on Tuesday, he said: 'When you think that you’d like to have one player and the market is open and the official bids are not forbidden, official bids are always accepted in an ethical way, you try because nobody forbids you to try.

'Of course the players’ owners can do exactly what we did with David Luiz and Barcelona. It’s simple.
'We do have a plan B and C, but I won't name names as it is difficult for me to talk about other club's players.'
Moyes also turned up in Deansgate in Manchester looking relaxed, despite his former club Everton being unhappy with his bids for star players Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez said: ‘It was all a bit of a waste of time — time I don’t want the players to waste. The situation is clear.
‘I’m not a big believer in having the transfer window open when the games are starting. I won’t keep talking about speculation. Our fans will be the first to know if there are any players coming in or going out.’
