This match came back into my memory today because it was when Roberto Mancini was involved in a "title decider" like tonight's game as a player.
It's probably my favourite game of all time, I remember RTE2 (or Network 2 as it was called back then) used to have a Serie A highlights show on Monday night which I watched religiously.
Inter went into the game needing a win to keep alive their hopes of winning the title (like United tonight). They had Samp pinned back for most of the game but were hit on the counter when Dossena scored his first goal of the season for Samp after being set up by Vialli. Vialli himself wrapped it up later. Mancini didn't cover himself in glory; sent off along with Bergomi of Inter after a ridiculous dive in the penalty area.
I remember this game vividly as it had everything;a missed penalty, two sendings off, goals against the run of play and rioting by fans (not that I condone the latter btw).
I actually taped it and watched it again at the weekend, it's only forty minutes, I must put it up on youtube. The only clip I could find of it is here:
If tonight is anything like it we should be in for a cracker.
