Mark Rowden: Ipswich 1-0 Inter, back in Inter's real 2001 pomp. Admittedly they were without their stars through injury, but still an incredible result.
Matt Pow: Easily Alex Ferguson's last game. WBA 5-5 Man United. The most surreal game I've ever seen.
Richard Keetley: Liverpool 1-2 Grimsby Town. A few years ago now, but a Phil Jevons wonder goal won us it in extra time.

West Brom will be without club record signing Nacer Chadli against Leicester on Sunday.
The midfielder has undergone a minor knee operation to remove some cartilage and is expected back after the two-week international break which follows this weekend's fixtures.
Striker Saido Berahino will also be absent as he has been sent on a four-day training camp in France to work on his fitness, while defender Jonas Olsson has a slight hamstring strain and is a doubt.
James McClean is suspended after incurring a fifth yellow card of the season against Manchester City last weekend.
It's still not entirely certain whether Yaya Toure's apology has been accepted or not - but it is fairly clear Pep Guardiola doesn't like discussing him.
As the third question was asked about the Ivorian at today's Manchester City press conference, Guardiola said he did not want to answer any more.
So, we don't know if the apology has been accepted, or just as importantly, if he has any realistic chance of being picked.
Time will tell on the latter. My inclination would be to think no.

Spurs play away at rivals Arsenal in the north London derby on Sunday and Pochettino says: "We are very happy with Harry, he had a good training session - he is fit.
"In the last few seasons he has been very important for us and was the top scorer in the league (in 2015-16). It is important for the club, it is very good news and good to have him back. He can help the team."

"He has struggled to recover and it has been a slow recovery," says Pochettino.Copyright: Getty Images
