Happy St Michael Thomas's Day

Twenty-five years ago today, Michael Thomas charged through the midfield and scored the goal that won Arsenal the league title at Anfield.

For any Arsenal fan, it still brings up the hairs on the back on the neck. Along with the late David Rocastle's cup semi-final winning goal at White Hart Lane, it's one of my favourite ever sporting moments.


And in other news: TWENTY-FIVE YEARS?! That's half a lifetime ago.

MT's goal is of course the defining moment of the "Fever Pitch" see

Meh!
There was no Hand of God involved.

As well as the hairs on their palms and the soles of their feet, not to mention the hirsute tufts they sport on their thick and protruding Neanderthal foreheads.
It was a glorious day indeed.
