"You can't take it for granted, before you know it it's gone". "I've been lucky to win three titles but so many I've missed as well".

In the space of 10 incredible days, they pipped Arsenal to the title by a single point, dispatched Newcastle in the FA Cup final and headed to the Camp Nou, where immortality awaited. "This club is absolutely unbelievable in all terms". Six years later, the finale was much more underwhelming, with Rodriguez nodding in from a corner to silence the majority of Old Trafford and set up one of the most surprising wins of the season.
