    The last 10-15 years when we still had comeback mentality.

    You can't really argue with that Top 3... maybe with the order, but yeah top 3 has to be Macheda, O'Shea and Bruce.

    A weird random one of mine is Ji Sung Park vs. Wolves.

    It's amazing how some people will never miss an opportunity to have a dig at United.

    Those injury time winners are spread over the whole PL era, one is by Rashford, who never played under SAF.

    Fergie's celebration for O'shea's goal never gets old for me. :drool:

    I'm missing the significance of the O'Shea one ? Surely Bruce's is the most important ? Perhaps Owens the most memorable. O'Shea's all I remember was a terrible game. A terrible performance and the winner being scored by a guy who summed up our luck in winning that game.

    It pretty much won us/guaranteed us the league that season? (like the Macheda and Bruce ones)

    Also, does it need to be more significant then a last minute winner at Anfield at the Kop end?

    Nearly half of the last 10 years and 1/3 of the last 15 years are post SAF. The Bruce one was from 25 years ago ffs! What on earth are you babbling on about?

    This. Every game in that run in felt huge. The mists of time are maybe dulling people's minds to how close Chelsea ran us that season. I can remember being in bits at being behind at Goodison in late spring, only to come back and win 4-2 with Chris Eagles putting the chery on the cake.

    At the time of that Liverpool game we were fighting to stay ahead of Chelsea. Liverpool were MUCH better than us on the day, and then Sheasy scored in front of the Kop in Fergie time. It was hysterical. One of the funniest moments I've ever had following football. The Scousers really thought they were gonna help Chelsea reel us in too. :lol:

    I've always thought, the United 'fear factor' we had underneath SAF was due to our ability and reputation to scoring late, and the irony was the more a team retreated in the final 20 minutes of a game, the better our chances of scoring were, we've not had this for so long, because of the inability of our players to score the types of goal that Matic did against palace, guaranteed Liverpool will shut up shot in final 10 minutes if we are still drawing .

    I don't think I've ever celebrated as hard as the Macheda one (except v bayern obvs). It just felt more emotional than even the Moscow win.

    Absolutely, it was a direct battle with Liverpool for the title - United simply COULD NOT lose that one.

    The negative nancy in me thinks it's to show more vids of how great we were, like they always do on the Facebook page, because they know everyone is moaning about how we play these days (I know thre's some recent clips as well though).

    I still like it though. Hopefully they start putting more exclusive stuff on there.

    I will always love Macheda for what he did.
    Almost all our attackers were injured/unavailable... he came on and within a week scored winners against Villa and Sunderland.. Liverpool were flying at that point.. without those wins, they would've won the league..
    Us not winning is bad enough, Liverpool pipping us to the title wouldve been unbearable.


    Thats enough goodwill for a life time.

    Steve Bruce's top the lot for me just because I was watching alone and remember going absolutely bonkers, with things falling off walls and shelves because I was jumping around like a six year old. Closely followed by the Michael Owen winner when I could have been charged for voice pollution!

    Yes! I was at the game loads of people had left but always sticks in my mind when it comes to last minute winners.

    I think the fear factor was because we had multiple options to knock them and in the last 10-15 mins a defending team knows we're going to go full-pelt to do so. Nerves sink it knowing that but also that you're only a short time away from a big win.

    Beckham can whip a ball perfectly from 40 yards for a tap in.
    Giggs can weave his magic at speed and also with great delivery.
    Our strikers had balls and physicality to lead from the front.
    Keane would fight and win most balls which set the tempo.
    Scholes could pick the lock or be the match winner himself.

    Wonderful footballers, strong personalities and a great work ethic. There was no support act - they were all key players and anyone of them winners.
