So if you had to pick one or a few matches that you wished you had been able to go to but couldn't because you were busy or you weren't even born what would they be?

Mines would be the best few months in my clubs history, 1961–62 we won the Scottish Championship at our bitterest rival St Johnstones ground! (plus to top it off St Johnstone were relegated lol) How I wish I had been there! Then in the European Cup the following year we knocked out the German champions Cologne (who were considered one of the absolute best in Europe), the Portuguese champions (Sporting Lisbon) and the Belgian champions (Anderlecht) before going out to Milan in the semi-finals even though we won the home leg at a capacity Dens Park. How times have changed! So what about you?

Shelbourne FC vs Hadjuk Split when we beat them and knocked them out of Europe.
I would have loved to gone to Ibrox to see Shelbourne lose 2-0 to Rangers too.

Would have loved to have went to the 3-3 Champions league final between Liverpool and Milan aswell, and the biggest attendance ever in British football 149,547 Scotland v England, Hampden Park 1937, Scotland won 3-1! Would have been amazing to be there.

It got to be Man Utd - Bayern Munich in 1999 CL Finals in Barcelona...
I was born and was not busy at all, it was just almost impossible to be at the game being 1000's miles away....

I wish I had gone to MLS Cup 2000 when my Wizards played Chicago and won. My girlfriend's grandfather was on death's door so I couldnt leave town. He died about 5AM the morning of the game so it is a good thing I didnt go.

The best game of my life! Such a roller-coaster of emotions.

I wish I had been around for the 1966 World Cup Final.

Liverpool v West Ham in the FA Cup final 2006. Gerrard last minute equaliser from 30 yards. Italy v Germany 2006 world cup semi final. Italy v France world cup final 06, Barcelona v Man Utd 09 CL final. El Classico when Barca won 5-0. Liverpool v Man Utd 4-1 at Old Traford. Ireland v Italy world cup qualifier 2010. Liverpool v Newcastle 1996 (the greatest PL game of all time). Ireland v Romania Italia 90 to get to the world cup quarter final. Barcelona v Getafe Messi's wonder goal.

I'm hoping to go to Old Trafford next year and watch a regular season game. Trying to set up a trip to Europe and see England, Germany, and maybe Belgium or Denmark.
