After losing 2 points so late in the game on Saturday - I was wondering if teams
had suffered worse than United so late in games......

And oh dear...........yes they have :eek:

In the Norwegian women's Cup final, the score between Asker and Strømmen
was 0-0 after 90 minutes, but finished 4-0 to Asker after extra-time.

Surprisingly there are worse !

Look no further than the third-round Norwegian men's Cup
clash between Tromsø and local rivals Tromsdalen in 1996. The score was 3-3
after 90 minutes, but Tromsø went on to win 8-3 after extra-time, with
Birmingham flop Sigurd Rushfeldt scoring five goals.

But Rugby were on the receiving end of an even greater added-time thrashing, in
the 2004-05 Southern League Cup third-round meeting with Sutton Coldfield.
With a minute of normal time remaining, Rugby led 2-0; when the final whistle
blew it was 2-2. Rugby, fielding a host of youth team players and reserves
continued the capitulation by conceding a further six in extra-time to lose 8-
2. "The heads dropped and their legs went in extra-time," admitted Rugby boss
Tony Dobson afterwards.

Special mention, however, must be given to Walsall's 1995 FA Cup second-round
replay with Torquay at the Bescot. Three apiece after 90 minutes, a Kyle
Lightbourne-inspired Walsall pushed on to seal a memorable 8-4 win.

Liverpool went through a long patch, quite a while back, by scoring 89th min goals; it became so regular, it was bet upon.

what in the 70s and 80s? did you bet on it?

all top teams have a good record for scoring late goals, it's not luck, it's about never giving up

Those instances are not really the same as a late equaliser in a league match! Or the same as a late win! ;)

It happens to my main/home team all the time, we haven't won this year and have twice suffered late collapses! Although, on a positive the other week(ater surrendering a 2-0 lead) we grabbed an equaliser in the 93rd minute!
