Great choice for there rewind series.

I don't think I have ever seen any footage from this game since actually attending it.

I do remember Hughes's winner though, great strike.

The one and only time I went to Ewood with my grandad (wasn't into football, preferred his motorbikes) and it was a memorable day!

Hughes' strike and it absolutely tipping it down all afternoon are my two memories.

Also got a wave from Marc Overmars before the match!

I remember that game for the fact that Barcelona, one of the best teams in the world, couldn't get the ball off Damien Duff. They couldn't get near him.

Phenomenal player here and in his first year or two at Chelsea.

I'd bought a Barcelona top before the game and went outside the players entrance after the game to try and get some players to sign it. All their players just got straight on the coach and didn't stop at all to interact with the fans - apart from one - Marc Overmars.

He stopped and got his match shirt out of his bag and gave it to a little kid in front of me. Class act.
