There have been some great semi finals. What are your best three?
1976 Gordon Hill and that goal v Derby
1985 Maine Road V Liverpool Robson top corner
1999 Giggs
Hard acts to follow.

Oldham was a cracker for me 1990.

1999 for me one of the best games I have ever seen, had every thing.

I’m with Timbo, I was at Villa Park that day. 1-0 down to a Woodcock goal and then screamers from Robson and Whiteside, all 3 goals at my end. I guess ‘99 is up there as well, down to 10 men and conceding a penalty in the last minute. Football, bloody hell.

It was an amazing afternoon. I was 17, same age as Whiteside when he scored!

1985 United v Liverpool, both intense games. Goodison atmosphere was savage. Obviously the reply was much better. First time for me at any semi finals, first game nearly broke me.
United v Oldham 1990 was a cracking match as well.
I really don't like the semi finals being played at Wembley.
Hope the true spirit of the club turns up today and United win in style.

RedMan. Giggs goal against Arsenal was great. But my favorite was the match against Derby (who were the best team in the land) and Gordon Hill scored a fantastic goal. I was there that day. We got pelted with stones and rocks on the way back from Hillsborough by some Leeds fans who had come out for a fight.
Gerry Daly played brilliantly that day against a Derby midfield containing bruce rioch and archie gemmill. Fantastic day.

I went to both semi and the reply in 1990 Beast. Classics.

I couldn’t get tickets for 76 or 99. My first semi of actually going was 79 at Maine Road. Was at both semis in 85 and the Goodison one was a war zone, disgusting what the Scousers did that day. I was annoyed in 99, despite being a ST holder I couldn’t get tickets for the semi or final and luckily managed to get Nou Camp tickets from another source.

76 holds a special place because I started supporting in late 68 after the European cup so that game against Derby was the first after years of issues that got us to a final. MOTD was a Liverpool love in, people have no idea these days. Derby were really good then, I remember watching Charlie George play for them at OT in early 70’s class act.
The goals yesterday were not classics but it’s always good to win the semi.
