    90+ minute free kick winner by RVP or yesterday’s 3 goal comeback. Both cagey. Both ended 2-3 United. Which was better?

    Yesterday's for sure. All the odds were stacked against us. City fans were already celebrating their title win. They looked like they'll score 5 or 6 goals in the first half. Coming back and winning from that situation is just incredible. When was the last time we came back from 2-0 down to win against a top 6 team? The only game I can remember is the 5-2 win against Spurs but that Spurs team was not really a rival.

    EDIT: We beat City 3-2 in the Community Shield.

    The Man Himself asked for a tagline change and all I got was this.

    Yesterday's 'felt' better as we came back from 2-0 down and shat on their party parade. 2012-13 was more significant in practical purpose as it gave us good buffer on them in title race. That day we had almost fecked up 2-0 lead.

    Definitely yesterday, we were abysmal in the first half, no one could've foreseen that second half.

    This. I think the odds 50/1 at half time says it all.

    12/13 - given how the previous season had ended, and with RVP having chosen us over them, that was perfect. We also played at a good standard throughout that game despite city's own comeback, unlike yesterday.

    Both incredible though, will live long in the memory. Could add 93/94 to this list too.

    Even though I loved yesterday so much I'll go for RVP FK game as it was more significant in the titlw race.

    Yesterday was awesome but meaningless in the grand scheme of things. Yes, we prevented them from winning the league against us but they're still going to win it. The win in 2013 gave us the edge and the belief to go on and win the title after losing the title to these lot the season previously. For raw emotion, that last minute winner was unbelievable too as we nearly fecked the game up after leading 2-0 and the icing on the cake was the player who scored the winner rejected City in the summer. Tough one - both were fecking great.
