A few people might agree with the one above. What was yours?


Got to be really, but the Sharp derby was amazing. I also have vivid memories of the sheer joy seeing Andy King's goal against the shite. The Watford FA cup final made me cry with pride. However, for goosebumps it's  the Bayern game.

Probably United at home first game of the season, the game were Fellaini had their entire midfield in his arse pocket. My lads first game and a decent performance from the team.

Others:

The 2-1 v Spurs at Christmas same season- we left it late but it was worth it!

Further back I'd say Spurs semi-final was a pretty decent day.

Just thought about the United 5:0 mauling.. what a performance that was. Our team was unbeatable that day. Even Sheedy scored with a header. Luton semi at Villa park. So many great days, Stoke away.. the kendall talk. Winning the title at Norwich... what a mad day out that was. Hired a coach.... you can imagine the rest.

The 6:1 game against Arsenal in 85, the Cup Winners Cup Semi Final and Final, the Andy Johnson derby as well as the others that have been mentioned previously.

This wasn't a bad one either.


Hopefully, we will get some more of these type of games at Goodison and then at BMD.

Bayern Munich was electric. Even when we went a goal down, there was no way that we were losing that game. The atmosphere that night was nothing short of fucking amazing and there was just a belief that we were going to Rotterdam.
Even all these hears later, I get goosebimps just remembering the feeling from the ground that night

Never felt an atmosphere like Fiorentina at home.
Finally found the thread where I said Deulofeu wasn't all that.

We will see in a few years where he is at. I'm betting he'll be at a worse club than Everton rather than at Barcelona.

Currently at Watford.

Two come to mind.

Spurs semi final. Best I have ever seen us play really.

That final day against Wimbledon when we 2-0 at half time.  Weird but itís the game I remember the most and the one I think of most fondly.

These 2 are my favourite. Remember everyone wanting a spurs vs United final and we royally pissed on their chips. The Wimbledon one was just amazing cause of the emotion

Of the ones that I've been to, the Coventry game last day of the season in 1998 was the most memorable.  Horrible game to watch but the release at final whistle was incredible, the pitch invasion, walking back in to town in the summer rain.  What a day.

Fiorentina at home was special. The stadium was literally shaking after Arteta scored.

5-0 v United is still my favourite, I was in the Gwladys with my dad, sat on one of the bars, he kept having to catch me after every chance / goal, I was terrified and extatic at the same time

For different reasons - The Bayern game, reminds me of my dad, Watford cup final, my first game at Wembley, the United semi in 2009, I took my youngest to Wembley with my brother and his lad and it was a boss day. Finally Kharkiv away, mental day

All of the above - plus Luton Town semi-final games, but especially the replay.

Rotterdam is the pinnacle for me though. They fought back at 2-0 to make it 2-1 but when the 3rd went in for us, the players started playing keep-ball and we were cheering every pass - that killed the hope in all their players and fans and was absolutely fucking brilliant.
