During the Alex Ferguson reign at Old Trafford, Manchester United seemed to score many goals in the last 10 minutes of games. Or maybe this was just a judgement based on a few key observations such as the 1999 Champions Final. What is less in doubt is that the last 10mins of games during the David Moyes era seemed to cost the club. Below is the top of the Premier League table if games had finished at the 80mins mark. United would have finished 5th instead of 7th.
The last 10 minutes of games also seemed to cost Fulham their place in the top flight of English football. If the games had stopped after 80mins then West Brom would have been relegated.
