Manchester is the obvious airport to go to, though some are going via East Midlands as you can fly direct from Knock. Birmingham is not too far away either by train.
There are good prices to be had for accomodation on Thursday night so it might work out as good value to fly on the last flight on Thursday, which is much cheaper than the Friday ones.
Plenty of accommodation options in Manchester. There is no particularly popular location for the Clan, we are fairly scattered.
Plenty of options around Manchester. Check the forum for some suggestions.
Castle in the Sky near the Trafford Centre is near where the free shuttles depart from if you are a bit early.
On matchday there are various bars at the ground including the legendary Sharquee.
Match Day Transport
Sharks run shuttle buses from the Trafford Centre. You can get there by public transport from various locations. Be warned that a few people had significnt delays on Manchester public transport at the last game. Allow plenty of time.

Things to see
Plenty to see in Manchester. The Museum of Science and Industry is worth a look if you like industrial technology stuff and have a look at the Lowry if you like art.
