As United Lined UP For the Final FA Cup Showdown of the Decade, They Were Records to BE Broken. Not Only Chasing Their 4TH FA Cup Win of the Decade and A Record 10TH Overall, They Were Also ON the Verge of Clinching an Unbelievable 3RD Double of the 1990'S, AS Well AS Vying For the Unprecedented Treble, With the European Cup Final Just Days Away.
facing Newcastle, Who Had Lost Out at Wembley the Previous Season, the Magpies Were Desperate to Add Silverware After Years of Trying, But United Had Other Ideas, and After the Drama of the Semi-final Clash at Villa Park Against Arch-rivals Arsenal, They Proved Just Too Good ON the Day, Despite Losing Roy Keane After Only 9 Minutes.
but IT Was A Stroke of Tactical Master-class From Ferguson That Led to United's Opener. Bringing ON Teddy Sherringham to Replace Keane, Solskjaer Moved Onto the Right of Midfield and Beckham Switched to A Central Role, With Sherringham Now Partnered With Scholes in Attack, and Within 100 Seconds of Stepping Onto the Field, IT Was the Substitute Who Orchestrated A Move That HE Finished Himself BY Firing Through the Legs of Harper.
united Looked in Control, and After A Brief Newcastle Revival at the Start of the Second Half, IT Was United Who Struck Again. This Time IT Was Sherringham Who Was the Provider, AS HE Laid the Ball into the Path of Scholes, Who Made NO Mistake in Firing Home From the Edge of the Box.
looking to Wrap IT Up, United Swarmed Forward, and Could Quite Possibly Have Had 3 Or 4 More, With Sherringham Going Closest With A Chip That Agonizingly Hit the Bar. But 2-0 IT Remained, and Part 2 of 3 Was Complete. Next Stop Was Barcelona, But First Enjoy This One Over Again, AS United Created Footballing History.
