Oranje crushed 🍊

#OnThisDay in 1996, @England produced one of their most devastating tournament performances to defeat the Netherlands 4-1, with Shearer and Sheringham in lethal form.

Only a late Patrick Kluivert goal kept the visitors in Euro '96 - at Scotland's expense.

If you're feeling as nostalgic as us, you can still relive the full game via BBC iPlayer: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000k55g/euros-rewind-netherlands-v-england-1996

Game of our Lives: Jo Avery

"At the time, I didn't realise the calibre of the people I was watching. Bobby Moore, Billy Bonds, Frank Lampard - absolute legends..."

Sporting Memories attendee Jo Avery recalls her first game - a bitterly cold afternoon in the company of her brother at Upton Park.

Many happy returns to former Liverpool FC skipper Alan Hansen: FA Cup winner in '86 and '89, runner-up in '88.

Proud to have the captain's shirt from the latter final, where, according to Motty, the Crazy Gang defeated the Culture Club. Wimbledon's Lawrie Sanchez scored the game's only goal - from a corner kick. Some might call the defending diabolical. 😉

Born on this day, Northern Ireland's finest shot stopper, Pat Jennings: an FA Cup winner with both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

Pat's second testimonial in 1986 featured a star-studded line-up, including Bruce Grobbelaar, Liam Brady and George Best. We have George's shirt from the game as part of our collection.

Captain fantastic. On this day in 1993, Paul Ince became the first black player to captain England football team.

Four years later, he put in a skipper's performance in Rome, giving his blood, sweat and tears to help the Three Lions qualify for the 1998 World Cup. 🤕

In 1977, twelve-year-old Bristol City FC fan Paul Gainey cycled 10 miles in the pouring rain to get Norman Hunter's autograph. This is part of his touching tribute to 'Bite Yer Legs', who we sadly lost earlier this year. #GameOfOurLives

"Every now and then a player comes along that doesn't quite fit the typical maverick bill. Sometimes, you'll be loved just as much by the fans if you spend the entire 90 minutes simply hoofing the opposition all over the park. That's not a fair description of Bristol City legend Norman Hunter but he certainly did his fair share. I met Norman in 1977 when he made a guest appearance at a Clevedon sports shop, cycling 10 miles in pouring rain to get his prized autograph.

"Back in the day, you had to overcome the physical aspect of the game before you could play. In the modern game, you’d need a blank cheque. He could have played in any era. He was a special player and a gentle, kind man.

"With Norman in our squad, we were able to compete strongly in the First Division. It was no coincidence that the season after he left we were relegated. Hunter's passion, power and presence on the field earned him the respect of fans, teammates and fellow professionals throughout the English game.

"He almost single-handedly kept City up for three seasons, notched up 122 appearances and even scored five goals. He supplied the class that enabled City, not only to survive in the top flight, but to also challenge for a European place in 1978/79.

"He struck City’s decisive third goal in their 3-2 victory over his beloved Leeds United at Ashton Gate in October 1977. Captain for the day, Hunter netted with a sweet left-footed strike from the edge of the box. It was a milestone moment for Hunter in every sense, with the veteran centre-half netting his first goal in the red of City, with his effort one of just four he scored in 108 appearances.

"I remember after the 1972 FA Cup final he nobly helped injured team-mate Mick Jones up the Wembley steps to the royal box to receive his winner’s medal after Leeds beat Arsenal 1-0.

"Football hasn’t lost a hard man, it’s lost a true gentleman."

"My favourite England shirt of all time is the one I had with Rachel Yankey's name on it. I wore it to training sessions as much as I could."

Manchester City and Lionesses left-back Demi Stokes lifts the lid on her first (and favourite) shirts. See Demi's video here: part of our Strip: My First Kit series... 👇

I think I was about 8 when I got my first football shirt. Back then, if you got a football shirt, it was probably a birthday or Christmas present.

I brought my elderly father to museum last week - had an excellent tour led by Laura . She was really knowledgeable on football and altered tour a bit to take into account team that most of us supported . Would highly recommend a visit and will return when next in Manchester
My family and I were humbled to spend a short amount of time talking to this highly decorated soldier yesterday ! Although he was telling us a football related story about his time in the Army and although he was smiling as he spoke his eyes were like a window to his soul. I’m sure today for him and many others is a bitter reminder of all they sacrificed for us to have a future. Sending love to Doug and all the heroes of war ❤️
Disappointing that you charge in now. Used to enjoy visiting with my son - we often bought a few items in the shop too. I wonder how the visitors from Preston in particular feel......
I am a big football fan, so you know, I just had to see this museum with my wife.George Best is in my opinion the best player in the world and what? A perfect surprise! We welcome George at the entrance to the museum! I recomend them if you will in Manchester⚽️💪.

My girl has designed a kit for the Lionesses. It has hands holding the trophy, fireworks and England written at the bottom. 😁
Very disappointed that I'm being essentially punished for not living in Manchester. My nephew was wanting to visit but it would not cost us £30 which I cant justify, when train fare to York is cheaper and free entry into Railway museum. Shouldn't be able to let people who live in Manchester for free and charge others. It should be free or charge for everyone. Not fair on those who dont live in Manchester.
Non-racist white women with f**king honour, kiss his sweet f**king ass better.
