About FAH

The 1999 Champions League final is my favourite match of all time. But for all the drama and repeatable commentary lines, for all the poetic brilliance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s winner, there was one man who suffered one of the worst moments of his life.

Newton’s first law says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction – that came from Samuel Kuffour. The Ghanaian defender was hysterical following United’s winner, beating his fist on the floor and screaming at the pitch. He’d come so close to victory and then let it slip through his hands.

Two years later he gained revenge when Bayern beat Valencia in the final, and he walked away with his winner’s medal. This website is about people like him.

Reminiscing about football is something every fan can relate to. I’m a Blackburn Rovers fan, so as you can imagine it’s quite easy to slip into nostalgia mode about times when we were able to turn down the likes of Zinedine Zidane in favour of Tim Sherwood.

You might argue that I’m stuck in the past, but our Premier League title win in the 1994/95 season – an achievement which, at just five years old, drew my attention to football – is not something to be forgotten. It should be celebrated.

This website is a place where you will hopefully take solace in your club’s current woes, and instead bask in the glory of achievements gone by.
