    naseem did enough when he was in his prime to be ranked with the greatest, it all went downhill when he sacked his coach, but still he WAS unbeatable

    Stadium of Light (Sunderland) and Gerland (Lyon).

    Serena of the old ie before her knee injury and other probs would definatley have kicked Sharipova in the butt. Serena was clearly not at her best (anybody could see that) and although Sharipova played well for a 17 year old, I don't think she was *that* amazing. The fact that Serena hadn't played that many matches this year, shows ALOT.
    I know some people thought this was "a classic", but I definatley don't agree. The first set was hardly tight and the match was over very quickly. The second set was much better, but it looked like Serena has just not had enough practise to instantly know where the ball should go, like she we've seen her do before.
    I was pretty disappointed in the match tbh.

    leeroy whats wrong wid u.

    naseem was good but not great. He fought second rate fighters but he fought marco antonio barrera, and he was worldwide legend and whipped him.

    im sorry to say this but I havent seem a decent british boxer ever. some were good, but they always got whipped when fighting abroad.

    I think the very best were:

    1)rocky marciano
    2)roy jones junior - my personal favourite-research this guy and u will know why!!! amazing!!!
    3)oscar dela hoya
    4)muhammed ali
    5)sugar ray leonard.

    Got to agree with everything already mentioned:

    Liverpool 4 -3 Newcastle

    Man Utd 2 - 1 Bayern Munich

    Czech Rep 3 - 2 Holland

    But I've got to also mention Middlesbrough and Birmingham, last season. A truly amazing match. Me and 30,000 others saw one of the most bizaare matches ever. About 5 minutes in, and Mendieta scores, added to later by Maccarone. Forssell manages to get one back literally seconds after, but Southgate scores another from a goalmouth scramble. 3-1, and the board is held up for first half injury time. Maccarone gets the ball in the Birmingham half, and scores one of the most spectacular (of fluky) goals of the season. Superb - the crowd go wild. But then, straight from kick off, Birmingham go right down the other end and Morrison scores. 4-2 half time. Not only goals galore and flowing football from end to end, but good goals -really good goals.
    Second half, and Forssell scores again, and for the last 20 minutes Boro are forced to sitback and defend. Its getting nervous for the fans, who sense an inevitable Birmingham equaliser, but then, Matthew Upson makes one of the funniest, weirdest, 'wtf was he doing' mistakes ever and tries to head a ball that is quite literally rolling along the ground back to his keeper. He slips, Nemeth pops up, rounds the keeper - 5-3. Amazing. And not only that, Forsell put in the best performance from an opposition player at the Riverside that season. He was fantastic. It's just lucky we had Mark Schwarzer, who made literally at least 5 WORLD CLASS saves from him. Maccarone was good too.

    And while I'm thinking about it, we were also winning Leicester 1-0 last season, and then Job missed a penalty. Leicester went on to score 3 times and were singing "1-0, and you f***** it up, 1-0.....". 90th minute and most of the crowd has left, unfortunately for them they missed not only our 2 goals in the 94th minute but the rather hilarious (for me at least) chants of "3-1, and you f***** it up, 3-1..."

    Ahhhh.....memories.

    The Riverside Stadium. Officially the first stadium in Europe to be built to comply with the Taylor report, published after the Hillsborough disaster, completed in 1995.

    Derby County, Southampton, and Sunderland all bought the designs off us, as it is a lot cheaper than commissioning designers to do the same thing. There was a problem with Southampton's though, I can't really remember, but I think it was something like they wanted to use a firm to build it that couldn't follow the designs for some reason, so they modified the design slightly.

    Pride Park and the Stadium of Light are literally copies of The Riverside, St Mary's is based on it.

    But........back to the original question......The Millennium Stadium by far, made better by the fact I saw us win in it

    Had a tour of the Stade de France, which was extremely impressive. Little underground road network under the stadium, and a mini hospital for match days. Very modern looking and clean, unlike the old Wembley. It's nearly as good as Sincil Bank, in fact
