Simple, mention your highlight and the low light for you of the footballing season.

Can be a team in a local league, United, or anything related to the vast world that
is football.

Here's mine (who both are United moments:eek:),


For me, the highlight of the season was the magical night in the Champions
League against Barcelona when 76,000+ roared Manchester United into the final
in Moscow against English counterparts, Chelsea. Having left the Camp Nou with a
somewhat lucky 0-0, United knew they had to force the initiative in the game and
after a slow start, they got clicking and a club legend was the one who struck the
first and fatal blow, Paul Scholes. That moment Scholsey unleashed his shot from
outside the box, and nestled in the goal, I sudden jerk occurred in my mind or
body, I don't know which, because this is a man who is now going to be playing in
a UEFA Champions League Final in Moscow after missing the memorable night in
1999. He, unlike Roy Keane will be able to rectify his mistake and walk out onto
the floodlit pitch. I don't know about you, but this was a telling moment of the
season and it'll be sticking in my mind for a long time to come. Just remember the
expression across his face once he knew he'd scored......

Low light

Another United event here, and this is one that came very early in the season
back in August when "The Baby Faced Assassin" announced that he'd be hanging
up his playing boots. Yes, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer called time on his playing days
and has since been awarded a testimonial against Espanyol. Ole played a very
important part in last seasons campaign and I'm sure he would have scored
important goals this season should he have continued playing. For someone to
show such commitment after coming back from serious knee injuries, Ole
managed goals against Charlton, Reading Celtic and a brace against Newcastle
United just to name a few. It was a saddening moment when he walked out into the
Old Trafford arena in that smart suit and announced he'd be leaving the playing
squad. I wish Ole all the best in his current coaching roles.
