We scored 4,034 of our first 10,000 goals in away games, and 200 in neutral fixtures but of course, the lion’s share were registered at home – 5,766 to be precise. But did you know more than 1,000 of these were grabbed at grounds other than Old Trafford?
Before the Theatre of Dreams opened in 1910, the club was based at North Road (19 goals) and Bank Street (771). We’ve also hosted fixtures at Maine Road (194), after our stadium was damaged during the war, as well as playing one ‘home’ game apiece at Anfield, Goodison Park, Home Park, Leeds Road and Victoria Ground for various reasons. All five of those games were won with a total of 13 goals for the Reds.
Other venues where we have been prolific include Villa Park but the home team haven’t been on the receiving end of all our strikes there. It was, of course, the scene of numerous FA Cup semi-finals, including that iconic replay in 1999 when Ryan Giggs scored arguably the greatest of our 10,000 goals.
