Opposition: Newcastle United
I’d waited so long to see Manchester United play at Old Trafford, 12 years in fact. I’d previously seen United play at The Molineux in a pre-season friendly where we turned around a great Steve Bull lobbed goal (against Schmeichel) to win 2-1. However, I’ll never forget the feeling of stepping into the Theatre of Dreams for the first time, actually seeing the team I’d supported since I was 8 years old and taking in the atmosphere of Old Trafford. The atmosphere was good, mainly due to the abuse aimed at Alan Shearer, who almost broke our hearts with a vicious free-kick that hit the woodwork. Although it wasn’t the best game and I didn’t get to experience the atmosphere and thrill of a United goal, it didn’t matter, I was there. We all know what we went on to do that season!
