The greatest season in Manchester United's history as they achieved an unprecedented Treble, lifting the Premiership Championship, FA Cup and European Cup all in the space on 10 incredible days in May 1999.
The title race went right to the wire this year, with United and defending Champions Arsenal staying neck and neck right through the closing weeks of the season. On the final day of the league season, the first part of the historic treble was completed as Manchester United won the Premiership title with a victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford, pipping the Gunners to top spot by a single point.
Things started badly though, Old Trafford was stunned when Les Ferdinand lobbed Peter Schmeichel to score the opening goal for Tottenham. The Reds fought back, however, and a David Beckham strike drew the scores level before half-time.
Andy Cole came on for Teddy Sheringham in the second-half and within minutes he was in behind the Spurs defence to lob Ian Walker and score the goal that won the Premiership title for Manchester United.
The second stage of the Treble was completed a week later as Manchester United comfortably beat a lifeless Newcastle United in the FA Cup Final. A week earlier United had secured the Championship and now had their eye on a third double in five years.
Captain Roy Keane limped off injured after just 5 minutes but substitute Teddy Sheringham was to have a big impact, scoring the opening goal with virtually his first touch.
United were always comfortable in the match and when Paul Scholes fired in the second goal after the interval, the final result was never in doubt. The United players celebrated the Double, but they still had the small matter of a European Cup final four days later!
United's route to their first European Cup final since 1968 was a rollercoaster ride with a host of memorable games against some of Europe's biggest clubs. United traversed the group of death in the opening stages of the competition, qualifying unbeaten from a quartet of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Brondby.
In the quarter-finals the Reds beat Inter Milan 2:0 at Old Trafford and in the second leg in the San Siro, they secured their place in the semi-finals be grafting out a hard fought 1:1 draw. In the semis the Reds were faced with the challenge of overcoming the team which had so often in the recent past been a thorn in their side in Europe - Juventus.
In the first leg at Old Trafford, Juventus had the better of preceedings, scoring first through Conte but in the dying minutes, Ryan Giggs produced a big goal for Manchester United, vollying an equaliser past Peruzzi to keep United's hopes alive going into the second leg.
Two weeks later in the Stadio Delli Alpi, Manchester United produced one of the greatest comebacks in European Cup history. 2:0 down on the night after only 10 minutes, United's European hopes looked dead and buried. But a remarkable fightback, led by Roy Keane, saw the Reds pull it back to 2:2 and then win the game and the tie in the closing minutes with a goal from Andy Cole.
United were through to their first European Cup final since 1968, to be played in Barcelona on what would have been Sir Matt Busby's 90th birthday.
The semi-final against Juventus had been dramatic, but nothing could match the drama in the Nou Camp on 26th May, 1999. The match started in the worst possible way as Bayern Munich took the lead with a free-kick from Mario Basler. United fought back valiantly, but against a well organised Bayern defence they just couldn't find a way through.
As the minutes on the clock ticked away, Alex Ferguson introduced Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to the United attack. It would prove to be an inspired double substitution.
In injury time, goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, playing his last game for the club, came forward for a corner. His presence in the box caused panic in the Bayern defence allowing Ryan Giggs to get in a shot which Sheringham directed into the net.
The whole game was turned on its head as United, only seconds away from defeat, lived again.
But it wasn't over yet.
A minute later United won another corner. David Beckham swung the ball into the near post where Sheringham's header was met by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who flicked the ball into the roof of the net.
The Manchester United players, staff and fans were in dreamland as they won the European Cup in the most incredible circumstances ever seen. Two goals in injury time had turned defeat into the most unlikely of victories and made possible the first ever Treble.
