Favourite football moment

Has to be Norman Whiteside’s extra time winner against Everton in the 1985 FA Cup final but for pure football theatre (and not just because it was against Liverpool) Michael Thomas’s last minute winner to clinch the league in May 1989 as the top two battled for the title after such an eventful season takes some beating.
