    Robo for me. We couldn’t win the league to save ourselves back then. The fans really needed that FA Cup run and beating Liverpool was like similar to Celtic beating Barca. Big goal that!

  2. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Anyone have statistics about late winners v pool. My own memory suggests we have had more late winners v pool than any other team? What’s the truth of it?

  3. Robin van Gora says:

    The solskjer one in 99 is my fave. Another one is the sheasy goal

  4. dannysoya LOVES USAIN BOLT says:

    JOHN O’SHEA by far my favourite goal against Liverpool of the past decade. PERFECTLY TIMED, in front of the Kop. What more could you ask for? Absolutely BRILLIANT.

  5. Costas says:

    Late goals are always a treat in this fixture. For some reason, Rio’s winner in January 2006 is my favorite. Other than that, we’ve had quite a few memorable moments. Sheashy’s goal, Ole’s winner in the cup game, Park’s winner in 2010, Berba’s hat trick and who could ever forget Diego’s brace.

    More of the same tomorrow.

  6. Hans says:

    It has to be O’sheas last minute goal in front of the Kop!

    Of topic, fascists without Ronaldo, just an ordinary team that cannot beat one of the worst teams in La Liga. Keep him quiet, and we’ll be safely through.

    As with everything else he did, Cantona made his strike look dead easy. But even though he stpes back as the ball comes to him, it still cramps him for room, basically in line with his body but off the ground and a little to the side. And he doesn’t have much time either. To get his foot off the ground and even hit the ball while moving backwards like that, was extraordinary. Few players would have achieved that and 99% of those would have shanked it. To somehow get his foot behind it and send the ball rocketing forward on an almost flat trajectory, and with perfect aim, is breath-taking.

    Shame we only have amateur footage to commemorate The Berb’s wonderful goal. Doesn’t do it justice, not by a long stretch. We marvel at goals like this when they are spontaneous, instinctive strikes (like Rooney’s overhead against Shitty), but what always struck me about this goal was the deliberate, calculated nature of it. He said after the match that he was actualy yelling for Rooney to leave the cross, to not head it. As the ball comes to him, it is obvious that he knows very early on that his best option is to “tame” the ball by knocking it straight up in the air with his knee, and then bang it home with an overhead kick. And that’s exactly what he does — but basically, he thought it through before the ball arrived, planned what to do, and executed it to perfection in the white hot cauldron of a Liverpool match. You won’t see many like that.

    Of his two other goals that day, the one where he outjumped and out-muscled Carragher to score from a header was also worthy of inclusion.

    Cheers for the book Scott! Never won a competition in my life so to say it was a surprise is an understatement! Looking forward to reading it almost as much as the match this weekend.

    I’ve been cringing all week with the comments coming from Rodgers and Gerrard and those bindipping buffoons who follow that pathetic excuse for a club. They truly live up to their billing as eternal victims. Rodgers saying that the decisions against them in the game at Anfield were bad and wouldn’t want them to happen to his side again. What, another deserved sending off? Another easily conceded penalty from Glen “Dani Alves” Johnson? The delusion seems to plumb new depths each season. Every single story on Sky Sports, the BBC, any sports website at all or national newspaper, scousers are complaining that it’s unfair already and that they might as well give United a 1 goal lead. Jesus Christ, what kind of support do you call that? The article in the Mirror where Scott faced off with Jim cuntface Boardman was an absolute gem, illustrating the fucking delusion and bitterness typical of those cunts. Suggesting we pioneered the idea of devaluing the cup. Eh? When? The five times we’ve won it under Fergie? (Just cringed at myself for even saying five times). Saying that RVP and Chicha are the only players who would make it into the Liverpool squad. Really? Is that why there’s a 21 point gap or whatever it is? They’ve become a parody of themselves, which is really fucking entertaining to watch. Until the racist abuse, Munich chanting or shit throwing comes out. As for this Boardman bloke saying Fergie is a hypocrite, he goes on to say that Reds on the internet are “Arrogant, mouthy, ignorant LFC-obsessed scumbags who don’t care who they hurt to score points over Liverpool fans.” That sounds familiar, but swap LFC with MUFC and Liverpool with Man United and it sounds about right. My god, the sheer righteousness of it. I can guarantee you that “don’t care who they hurt” line is basically implying we sing about Hillsborough. I understand some fucking morons still do, which is just disgusting. But the majority of us don’t. We may hate the bastards, but that’s about more than football. But it’s not as if they’ve never sang about Munich or taken the piss out of Everton because of their actions at Heysel. It’s playing up to the ever more popular stereotype of “always the victim, it’s never your fault.” I’m looking forward to the game so much, it’s the big one for me, City are “massive” but you can’t compare them with Liverpool, the shitstain of a club or the verminous cretin that reside in their city.

    Come on United!!!!!
