Global Reds eye local tie

Which is your favourite derby moment of all time?

Ethel Sleith, South Africa: Michael Owen bought me, body and soul, with his last-minute winner. Before that I wasn’t very keen on him.

Omar Altaf, Kuwait: This season, when Robin van Persie scored the injury-time winner at the Etihad Stadium. I was at the #IAMUNITED fans’ party in Kuwait and I was standing with Peter Schmeichel during the final few minutes of the game. High-fiving with the Great Dane when van Persie's free-kick went in was something I had dreamed of!

Stefanos Tsichritzis, Greece: My favourite moment was roughly ten years ago at Old Trafford when Niall Quinn, like a drunken giraffe, fired wide of an open goalmouth from five yards out. He held his head in disbelief much to the joy of K Stand.

Hansruedi Amsler, Switzerland: United's 5-0 demolition of City in 1994… probably because I was at Maine Road on 23 September 1989 when we lost 5-1!

Ville Romppainen, Finland: It has to be when Owen scored the 96th-minute winner and I was sitting in the Stretford End. That 4-3 game was such a rollercoaster of emotions.

Rok Saje, Slovenia: For me, it’s Rooney’s bicycle kick... and I was there to see it.

Kyle Diller, USA: RvP's Etihad winner. I think everyone wanted revenge for last season's heartbreak and we got it. When his goal went in, I was just lost in so much raw emotion. In that moment, so many of our derby demons were exorcised. That feeling was one of the best I've had in over a decade of supporting the club.
