Mine has to be the Aguero moment.

Personally United always comes before the country.

Losing champions league finals to Barcelona. The first one more than the second one as we ahould have won the first one against them (Ronaldo's last game for utd i think).

Nothing more horrible than losing a CL final.

The EL final is the worst I've felt for many years

Not a loss but the 4-4 against Everton. I knew we had thrown the league right then and there.

Aguero moment is one of them because I thought we'd won the title 1 minute before, but the worst feeling will always be our first CL final against barca where we were totally 100% outplayed.

The 3-0 loss to Liverpool under Moyes.

Not only the reality of it, but the sheer humiliation that was dished out that day.

I mean, we lost many knockout games and so on under Fergie, but you knew we'd bounce back.

That loss felt like our plummet to earth and their rise.

That time we got relegated vs Liverpool after a 2-2 draw when we thought we were safe because some guy in the crowd gave the manager the wrong score (Alan Ball) and instead of attacking, we time wasted the last 5 minutes only to find out we were down.

2006 World Cup, weirdly. Was in a rowdy pub every game of it, with the same big group, massive atmosphere every time. It makes you feel it more.

United was the CL Final loss.

fecking hell. Brutal timing. But yes as you noted in the OP - Aguero was worse than this.

To be fair, Barcelona were probably the best team we've witnessed for many years. Even as United fans credit where it's due.

I don't think anything will ever top the Aguero pain for me in terms of sporting events

I still avoid watching the goal

Probably at around the 89th minute of the 99 CL final :lol:

Definitely Aguero... Leaving the Stadium of Light that day was just a sickening, sickening moment.

After that it would be Porto (Jose) #2 and Madrid (Nani red) #3.

Oh also that Arsenal cup final when we dominated them and lost on pens.

Today was probably the worst in a long long time though.

In addition the other games mentioned here, Sevilla game in 2018 made me stop watching football altogether for about a week.

Chelsea (the saviours of football) fan.
90 World cup semi was the worst.

94 FA Cup final was really bad.

Euro 96 Semi was a bummer.

Nothing else comes close, especially as I get older. Tonight barely scratched the sides.

Both finals to Barca. The Aguero goal i couldn’t even comprehend at the time and it sunk in slowly over a few weeks.

Those Barcelona games though. I felt like I never wanted to see another match again. Just empty.

The Porto game and the Drogba goal to effectively win Chelsea the league at Old Trafford that was a country mile offside.

Most recently the Palace one with the penalty against Lindelöf that was so bad that they changed the handball rule about a week later... that was then retaken to make sure they scored after De Gea made his first penalty save since he's been able to grow pubes.

Don't know why but i always remember the pain of 2011 more than Barca 09 which is stupid because the 09 game was WAY more winnable. The 2011 defeat was utterly inevitable.

Felt proud of United when we met Arsenal in the FA cup final 05 but lost on penalties. It hurt but there was a lot of pride in the performance.

Probably wasn't after a big match but rather one of those depressing manager-should-be-sacked-now-but-probably-won't-be losses to a lesser side from recent years.

Zidane headbutt against Materazzi has to be my lowest point.

2011 CL final was awful, but I'm going to stick my neck out and say tonight because of the Rashford, Sancho and Saka abuse.

It's unacceptable and it makes me wonder why I've followed the team side by side with these pieces of shit for a month, when the only reason they've been silent thus far is because winning is the only thing that stops the abuse. Might be a minority, but they're the most visible.

The Aguero moment is a weird one because it felt to me that QPR stopped playing. The Sevilla game with Jose’s football heritage quote was bad.

I don’t think we lost but the game against Fulham under Moyes. That was actually heartbreaking.

Wow how did you survive :lol:
Is this supposed to be sarcastic ?

There're ton of games played each week across different leagues and European competitions. Football doesn't revolve around United 2 games a week only.

This loss left me feeling so fecking shit back then that my terrible mood was obvious for every one around me the next few days and no one understood why.

I'm also in the Barcelona 2009 final camp. I thought our team was an unstoppable winning machine, better than the year before and that would find a way to get results, and didn't have half a clue how good that Barcelona team was about to be. So that loss hit like a ton of bricks.
