FA Cup Final Saturday 22nd May 1999
Vs Newcastle United

The FA Cup Final Is Normally The Most Looked Forward Too Event In English Football, But For United Fans It Was Greatly Shaddowed By The Following Weeks Spectacular Of The Uefa Champions League Final.

It Was A Very Warm Sunny Day In May And Wembley Stadium Had Been Transformed Into A Pulsating Sea Of Red, White And Black. 79,000 Had Packed Into Wembley. The Final Really Would Have To Have An Energetic Buzz Of Enthusiasm If It Were To Live Up To The Expectations Created From The Semi-Final Against Arsenal.

10 Minutes Into The Game And Sheringham Put Unitede Into The Lead, After Re-Placing Roy Keane Who Had Left The Pitch With An Ankle Injury.

Newcastle Had A Few Attempts On Goal, But Nothing That Would Really Test Peter Schmeichel In His Last Game On English Soil.

Half Time Arrived And The Score Was Still At 1-0 To United.

7 Minutes After The Start Of The Second Half And Paul Scholes Put It Past Harper, To Fire United 2-0 Into The Lead.

Full Time.
United Had Won The Double Again!
!Now For The Treble!
