26th May, 1999--somewhere in Barcelona

aha! Nou Camp-it is injury time, and Man United still trailing 1-0 to Bayern Munich, in the Champions' League final.. here's the story in words... \m/

(United have a corner, Beckham to take.)
90.21 Can Manchester United score? They always score.
In towards Schmeichel......its come for Dwight Yorke
Cleared...........Giggs with the shot
90.35 SHERINGHAM! (Sheringham scores)


91.15 As things stand we will go into extra time with a golden goal hanging like a massive shadow over this final unless Ole Solskjaer can find another......

(United have another corner, Beckham to take)

Is this their moment?

92.17 Beckham......
Into Sheringham.....
AND SOLSKJAER HAS WON IT! (Solskjaer scores)
Manchester United have reached the promised land, Ole Solskjaer, and the two substitutes have scored the two goals in stoppage time and the Treble looms large.

93.33 (Final whistle blows)
History is made, Manchester United are the Champions of Europe again and nobody will ever win a European Cup final more dramatically than this. Champions of Europe, Champions of England, the FA Cup holders, everything their hearts desire. United fans will ask where did you watch the 1999 European Final? Where did you see Ole Solskjaer win it with virtually the last kick of the final?

"At the end of this game, the European Cup will be only six feet away from you and you'll not even able to touch it if we lose. And for many of you that will be the closest you will ever get. Don't you dare come back in here without giving your all".

Godlike, isn't it? after this final, and the Treble, it was Sir Alex! \m/ The old man sure does know how to get a response!

don't tell me u dont have goosebumps after reading that.. cos 90% of you are united fans (of which 90% are plain ignorant and know nothing!), 9% are United haters, the rest 1% are lying (about not being United fans!) ;)
