That one second that changes everything. The sudden rush of ecstasy. The complete loss of inhibition. The wild celebrations. There is no better feeling than a stoppage time goal.

The Art of Football’s crafted designs emulate the beauty of those moments never forgotten, capturing the energy, passion and euphoria that erupts from that one magical goal. Limited in number, each design, like any good piece of art, is completely original.

Rant has two T-Shirts to give away in this week’s competition. First prize is “All Hail the King” – a moment of Eric Cantona beauty. Second prize is “Winning in Style” – Wayne Rooney’s last minute overhead against Manchester City.

To win tell us about your favourite Manchester United moment. Comment below or on Twitter (@unitedrant #rantcast) to enter. The best answer, as chosen by Rant Cast presenters Ed & Paul, gets the Cantona T. Competition closes Saturday 22 November, 12 noon.

My best United moment came in my only (to date) visit to Old Trafford. I was about as high up in the East Stand as you can get, but was happy enough to be there and see the likes of Beckham, Solskjaer, and Keane. To add to it, I got to see Peter Schmeichel (albeit in claret and blue) and a Ruud van Nistelrooy goal, followed by one of the most awkward barrel roll celebrations ever. A 1-0 win was enough to make my first visit to OT worthwhile.

When 17-year old Federico Macheda curled a peach of a shot into the far corner against Aston Villa, Manchester United not only leapfrogged Liverpool into 1st place but the goal also helped us in our quest to win title #18 that season at the expense of Liverpool. A magical moment from the youngster for which, despite his lack of success at the club, he will always be remembered in Manchester United folklore.

85th min in Barcelona 1999, Janker overhead kick hits the crossbar…
After all the excitement all the build-up United produce a fairly toothless, tepid performance… All the anticipation slowly but surely spirals down the drain. We are watching, in an increasingly deafening silence, the end of the treble dream, Effenberg’s effort is pushed over by Schmeichel, Scholl’s one hits the post and then Janker nails the crossbar…
My reaction is one of defiance, a Keane reaction: No, we’re not going to lose that thing, this is fate, this is destiny, this is who we are! We will do it, we can and we will score, if only because you can’t
That trigger, that belief in the exceptional is why I follow United; even Moyes can’t take that away from our club, hard as he might’ve tried

Too many great United moments to mention, but my favourite Chelsea moment was when John Terry performed his own version of the Paul Simon song ;Slip Slidin’ Away’.

First experience of Old Trafford, as an 8 year old, United v Blackburn in 1998, 3-2, a few offside goals and Tim Sherwood sent off for punching Beckham. Couldn’t ask for me!

Watching United lift the premier league trophy at the end of my very first visit to OT in the 96-97 season, while I was just 6 years old! Start of something special.

Ronaldo’s free kick against Portsmouth which hits the top corner of the net and leaves David James just standing there, knowing that there was no chance that he could of saved it.

First time I’d been to a game with my dad since I was a kid.

We arrive late, just before kick off, and as we climbed up the stairs, the crowd roars, Giggs has scored!

“Aww, bet we’ve missed the only goal”, said my dad.

The date? 28th September 2004. Rooney. Debut. Hat trick.

Happy days 🙂

Mark Hughes’s full stretched last minute of extra time volley vs Oldham in the 1994 fa cup semi final to take us to a replay & keep the double dream alive… Brilliant goal, great memories!

Apart from the obvious late and magnificent goals. I have a love of Ole’s red card in the last minute against Newcastle. Totally selfless moment from a team player and loved how he just walked off, no argument.

Time is running out. There’s not much hope. The double dream is dying. The ball is ping ponging around the area, it’s flicked on into the area. Who is there? The king of volley’s. Mark Hughes, flying toward the ball. The expectation is killing. It fly’s into the top corner.

Great goal. Great moment.

Paul Scholes goal vs Panathinaikos in 2000. That was absolutely beautiful.

Dave Gallagher - November 23, 2014 Reply

2008 Barca at OT. Barca had Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Toure etc.
Scholes hits a screamer and the noise was ear splitting.
The North Stand was shaking, we were shaking, and the final whistle was an age away!!
Final score 1-0 cue another ear bleeding Mancunian roar. Unbeatable.

Same match,
had taken girlfriend away to Spain for a romantic long weekend, that night in a quiet restaurant and had secured a spot where I could see a tv showing the match ( without girlfriend being aware ).
after the first course, she was looking into my eyes and expecting some romantic response, when looking over her shoulder I saw the ginja ninja cream the shot into the top corner, I immediately shot out of my seat and screamed, ” Fuckin’ hell we’ve scored”. Life doesn’t get much better than that day !!!!
