    First wins at new stadiums for Manchester United

    RIVERSIDE STADIUM (3-0 V MIDDLESBROUGH, MAY 1996)
    To paraphrase Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan, United had to go to Middlesbrough and get something on the last day of the 1995/96 season and, fortunately, we did. With the Magpies just two points behind, the Reds needed a win on our first venture to the state-of-the-art Riverside Stadium to be sure of a third title in four years. Trips to the north-east had often resulted in disappointment, with United winning just one of our last 11 fixtures at the old Ayresome Park, but David May’s back-post header put paid to any early nerves. With Newcastle still level at home to Tottenham in a game which would finish 1-1, the pressure never really felt like it was on, and Andy Cole and Ryan Giggs added further efforts in the second half to ensure Steve Bruce would be lifting the trophy later on that afternoon at the recently opened ground. All together now, ‘We won the Football League again, down by the Riverside…’
