What moments regarding United have left you with tears in your eyes, that lump in your throat? We've all had them no doubt but what events triggered those sensitive strings?

The last 2 for me were actually quite recent to be honest.


Champions League Winners
As the team walked up the steps in Russia, they were ;ed by none other then Sir
Bobby Charlton. That was an incredibly moving moment for me. To think of the
things he's been through and then to lead a team up the steps to collect the
trophy 50 years on was something very, very special to me.


Ole's Final Farewell
Only a few weeks ago, but sitting in Old Trafford and watching the last few
minutes of the game, thinking of all his superlatives and the fact that we won't
see him grace the Old Trafford turf again, coupled with his honest and moving
speech left me with tears in my eyes anyways. I saw a man who I'm guessing
was around the 80 mark crting into a hankerchief after that game and it made it
all the more emotional for me.





Lets hear the stories guys....

Ole announcing his retirement this time last year.
And that minute silence against City.

They were the two most recent.

His testimonial didnt touch me as much because I already know that he wasn't going to play again. We didn't have him all season and I began to accept it.

not so much the minute silence but the piper coming out playing Red Flag with the scarves. Moment that gives me goosebumps just thinking about it.

A few of the emotional moments for me was:

- when Bruce and Robson lifted the cup together
- Eric Cantonas comeback after the ban and he scored the saver penalty kick
- the night at Camp Nou. Not so much for the trophy but for what night it was. Sir Matt Busby's birthday. A twist of fate.
- Ole's testimonial.

Most of the time when we are playing in the Champions League and the music is playing.

Ole's Testimonial when he actually came on.

Any time I watch a replay of that final in 1999.

Watching Giggs' goal against Arsenal in the semi final replay.

This is a bit unfair. Theres so many to pick from! :confused:

But, I'll stick with one, and that would be when Sir Bobby led the way, walking up the steps to receive the trophy.

That was so emotional for me. I still get a tear in my eye whenever I see it.

When Edwin saved Anelka's penalty, I was on the phone with my bro (watching it together but he's in California) and I just kept jumping up and down screaming "CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT" bawling like a schoolgirl lol.

99.

When everyone was singing for George Best after he passed.

50th anniversary of Munich. I was a wreck the whole day in school.

There's a lot more, I just don't wanna bore anyone else lol.

I cried when we beat Chelsea in the CL final.....it was fate, 40 years, 50 years,
the way we won it.....everything. I was drunk and in bits. Good times :)

When it was announced Ole was to retire. Sunderland (and Roy Keane)
came back to OT and they had the guard of honour for Ole.
That coupled with seeing Keane back at OT had me in shreds lol.

Game vs City and that whole week. The build up and all teh stories of the babes
was an emotional and draining week.

Keano's home coming was nice. The reception of the fans with a standing ovation was very very nice but the way Keano looked chewing his gum was more funny. He tried the stiffer upper lip but you could see inside was a vulcano with emotions.

I'll always remember when Sir Matt passed away . The out pouring of emotion everywhere was unbelievable . It was like a really good friend had passed away .
I admit I cried when we beat Chelsea in the CLF I don't know why but it was like a huge relief when Edwin saved that penno .
I have to say I have never experienced heart break like the year we lost the league to Leeds in the 91-92 season .

Ole retiring was another thing....it was soo unexpected, what more his farewell is on course with the return of Keano....Also on Henrik Larsson last day.....that is just so sad...then of course the champions league final..


ANd oh just for the record, i cried everytime any of our players got serious injury, i just cant help it..im a sad person... :D
