Description

19th December 1998 and a stunning win for Middlesbrough against Manchester Utd at Old Trafford. This was Man Utds treble winning season but Boro managed to beat them at Old Trafford for the first time since the mid 70s. Goals by Hamilton Ricard, Dean Gordon and Brian Deane put Boro 3-0 up and they survived Utds fightback to make it 3-2 following goals by Nicky Butt & Paul Scholes. This must have been a very sweet victory for Utd legend Bryan Robson but unfortunately for him, his opposite number Lord Ferg was not at the match as he was in bed with a bad cold !
