Just mulling over some old videos of Utd games, and just to while away the time during the international break, thought I'd ask what your favourite player performance has been since you started supporting the club.

Mine isn't very original, but Roy Keane in the 99 Champions league semi-final is, in my view, the single most inspirational individual performance I think I've ever seen on a football pitch.

100% agree Stevie I read the question and my mind went straight there.

Possibly the most complete individual performance I've ever seen.

10 Oct 2018 20:20:25
Hard to look past that performance from Keane.

Schmeichel against Newcastle at St James Park. Save after incredible save and then up pops Cantona for the winner. Think that was 1996.

10 Oct 2018 20:35:19
1984, Barcelona at home, Cup Winners Cup, lost the first leg 2-0, Maradona, Schuster and co meant we were given no chance. Ask anyone who was there that night and there hasn’t been anything quite like it and Robson dragged us over the line. Carried off the pitch on the shoulders of the fans. Watch the video, turn the sound up, I still remember Stapleton scoring the third from where I was standing right in line with him on the Stretford End. Those days there was a crush when we scored, not much touched that night and Robson’s performance.

What came close? Cantona in 96, Schmeichel away to Newcastle in 96, Keane at Juventus in 99, Rooneys debut v Fernabace plus several Ronaldo games in 2009.

10 Oct 2018 20:42:43
Both of them would be in my top 3 hoggy. robson v barcelona at old trafford would be the third. Was it 84? They are the stand outs for me.
Good question stevie.

10 Oct 2018 20:46:25
Keano is head and shoulders above but though not one particular game, Cantona seemingly series of goals in our 1-0 wins I alwys think about. Eric really stepped us and everyone around him up a level.

10 Oct 2018 22:28:56
I am with Red Man.

Robson was brilliant.

10 Oct 2018 22:48:00
Rooney debut is a great shout redman. Hat trick after his metatarcel injury was some way to enter the stage included a great free kick i think.

10 Oct 2018 22:49:45
It would have been the complete performance if he didn't get booked deano😂😂.

10 Oct 2018 22:53:18
Roy Keane v juve.

And if you said one player you'd have back right now it would also be him above them all.

11 Oct 2018 01:20:19
What about the countless unbelievable performances of eric djemba djemba-how time makes us forget!

11 Oct 2018 08:16:31
Big norm against the scouse scared the :;"' out of them.

11 Oct 2018 09:31:01
All good shouts but I do like robbo’s Performance against the scousers Maine rd 85 replay. No better player than captain marvel.

11 Oct 2018 10:12:04
Yeah, Robbo against Barcelona was up there with the best of them. I think Keane's edges it for me because of the circumstances. On a yellow, knowing he'd miss the final, but still summoning up the drive and passion to get us over the line. What a year that was. So many defining moments.

11 Oct 2018 10:33:00
Mine has to be scoles and Carrick and there combined display when we thrashed Roma it was one of the best midfield partners display I think I have ever seen they ripped Roma apart!

11 Oct 2018 10:57:05
Forgot about Barcelona in 1984.

A great game. Think the Stretford End sucked in the 3rd goal.

These games are what being a Utd supporter is all about.
The team sometimes have a mountain to climb but never give up and have a go no matter who the opposition is!

11 Oct 2018 13:23:46
Steve Bruce against Villa?

11 Oct 2018 15:48:27
United 4 - 3 Real Madrid

Admittedly we ended up losing on aggregate but 2 great attacking teams, the United fans giving Ronaldo a standing ovation, Becks with a point to prove. Just a wonderful advert for Champions League football. Also really enjoyed a few of the clashes with Arsenal.

11 Oct 2018 16:06:46
Surely it has to be John O'Shea in the 4-0 win against Spurs in 2007?

Absolutely stunning performance, one of the few times I was lost for words. Lol.

11 Oct 2018 18:56:28
The booking just made the performance better for me ken it was a true selfless performance .

12 Oct 2018 10:12:45
Steve Coppell against anyone.
