What’s your greatest ever European match?

Tag: RedRants Feature @ 10:08 am

As a United fan old enough to remember the much fabled and often talked-about United v Barcelona match at Old Trafford in 1984, it’s difficult to offer any other game to challenge it as the greatest ever European match especially as I was there to witness it and be part of the electric atmosphere that will arguably never be replicated.

Older Reds will surely have other matches in mind like Wembley ’68 or the home leg of the semi-final versus Real Madrid in the same year.

Younger Reds could suggest Rooney’s debut, the Roma demolition or more recently Scholes’ volleyed winner against Barcelona in ’08 to send United to a Moscow final with Chelsea. What’s yours?

This collection (available to buy via Amazon) of UEFA Great Matches of European Football doesn’t solely concentrate on United unfortunately, but it does start with us and the greatest, probably most memorable comeback of all-time……you know it, Barcelona ’99.
