Once upon a time, there was a TV series called 'Great Sporting Moments'. Good idea I thought. We should have that on LiveJournal I thought...





The last thing Manchester United needed in the 1999 FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal was for the match to go to extra time and then a replay. That's exactly what happened. They were also still trying to win both the Premier League and the Champions League and really could have done without extra fixtures. The replay had to be played just three days later. Beckham put United ahead, Bergkamp equalised, Roy Keane got sent off and Arsenal got a penalty right at the end of 90 minutes. WHICH SCHMEICHEL SAVED! And the game went to extra time.

And then this happened.



Best FA Cup goal ever, I reckon.

And they won the Premier League. The Champions League? That'll have to wait for another of philmophlegm's Great Sporting Moments.
