Clive Tyldesley with Magic in his Speech

Posted: Saturday, May 21, 2011 by Kratik in

As we are only a week away from another European Cup final, I thought it'd be awesome to look to look back on a piece of commentary that in itself has become an epic. Clive Tyldesley was the commentator when Manchester United beat Bayern Munich at Nou Camp in 1999:

United were 1-0 down after 90 minutes, scored within two stoppage time minutes to leave Bayern Munich bemused and United fans in jubilation.

Here it is...

(United have a corner, Beckham to take.)
90.21 Can Manchester United score? They always score. Beckham.......In towards Schmeichel......its come for Dwight Yorke
Cleared...........Giggs with the shot
90.35 SHERINGHAM! (Sheringham scores) NAME ON THE TROPHY!

91.15 As things stand we will go into extra time with a golden goal hanging like a massive shadow over this final unless Ole Solskjaer can find another......

(United have another corner, Beckham to take)
92.13 Is this their moment?

92.17 Beckham...... Into Sheringham..... AND SOLSKJAER HAS WON IT! (Solskjaer scores) Manchester United have reached the promised land, Ole Solskjaer, and the two substitutes have scored the two goals in stoppage time and the Treble looms large!

93.33 (Final whistle blows) History is made, Manchester United are the Champions of Europe again and nobody will ever win a European Cup final more dramatically than this. Champions of Europe, Champions of England, the FA Cup holders, everything their hearts desire. United fans will ask where did you watch the 1999 European Final? Where did you see Ole Solskjaer win it with virtually the last kick of the final?
