I was only talking about this match the other day in the "First Game You Remember Watching" thread. Other than the goals, I vividly remember somebody fouling Giggs while he was running so fast that he did a full somersault in the air.

In other news, that is the first time I have ever typed, written or read the word somersault. Still not convinced that's how it should be spelled.

Chelsea are such a small club, one league title and one FA cup in their history, we'll roll them over.

League and cup double here we come! :D

Are you sure it wasn't Irwin who did the somersault when Giggs fed him for the first penalty?

This is the match that made me start supporting United and the earliest match I can recall watching live.

Enjoy, especially those who never saw that team. One of our best of my lifetime, nearly 40 years, and my personally favourite United side.

This match!!

I was chatting with Gavin Peacock only a week ago about this game. Whenever he brings up playing United, he makes a point of pointing out that Eric Cantona, "walked around like he owned the field", which according to him, really mentally got in the heads of his Chelsea teammates since they sometimes lost the game mentally even before it started.
He also said that Wembley was terrible to play at, since the field was like a sound vacuum, so you couldn't hear much from the 80,000 of so in the crowd. Weird.
