I didnt make it across, I knew when I was in Barcelona for the semi that if we got through after the home leg I wouldnt be going as the missus was heavily pregnant and she was having a rough pregnancy.

It took me ages to bond with the child as all I could see when I saw his face was Van Der sar saving Anelka's penalty

Likewise - didnít make it. We got put off by all the visa stuff which back then felt really complicated and so we went to Loaf or one of those places in deansgate locks which was a ticket only affair. Despite not being there, it was brilliant - the place went radio rental during the pens. All onto Albert square afterwards.

Still regret missing it though.

i think this was the last season i stopped going to away games. gave up home games in 2005.

my son was 7 weeks old so i couldn't go and i remember scaring the shit out of him with the goons during the penalties. little f***er doesn't like united now. i wonder if this is the reason?

Match ticket was your visa.

I thought it was a shite trip tbh. Miserable Shithole and the atmosphere was average (I thought) at the game outside of the big moments.

Still euphoric of course.
