Ronald's header was magnificent, the rest of the game was a slog, I was more relieved than ecstatic at the end. 

Both CL finals we won had a huge amount of luck.

That's kind of annoying that a club of this size hasn't won one comfortably.

But that's Man Utd for you, always the hard way.

At least we thumped Benfica in extra time in 1968.

Had to rely on Eusabio missing a bunch of one on ones  in that one as well lol. We've had some awful luck as well though. Even the following year in 1969 we had a Denis Law goal not given in the semi final vs AC Milan which would have put us through to the final (ball crossed the line).

Actually if you look at that era there are some very sketchy ref performances for the Italian sides. The 1/4 final of 1969, Milan had some ridiculous decisions go for them against Celtic and I remember being told by a Dundee fan about some famous "scandal of stamford bridge" tier disgrace when they lost to Milan around that period (Milan were gifted like 3 goals or something).

But yeah our CL record is awful for a team of our stature.
