A lot of West Ham fan enjoyed loving footage posted by the club of a historic fixture against Manchester United back in 1995 featuring a “super human” performance from Ludek Miklosko.
The goalkeeper was the first player from the Czech Republic to come to the Premier League, via West Ham, when he moved from Banik Ostrava and he thoroughly impressed, making 376 Hammers appearances in all competitions from 1990 to 1998, via Soccerbase.
This game against the Red Devils might have been his best in an Irons shirt as he pulled off save after save to deny the opposition. The match ended 1-1 and it highlights how great a performance the goalkeeper put in to still be remembered for a game in which he conceded, via West Ham United.
The 1-1 draw denied United what would have been their third consecutive title back in the 1994/95 campaign. They needed a win to leapfrog league leaders Blackburn and it seems the main reason for failing to get three points was Miklosko, according to Michael Hughes, the Hammers’ goalscorer that day. Speaking to the Daily Mail about that game, he said, “In the last 20 minutes they (Manchester United) had about 18 chances when Miklosko was unbelievable.
“I don’t know how he saved some of the things he saved that day. It wasn’t meant to be for United that season – it was as simple as that.”
Here is what these West Ham fans had to say following the tweet:
