We didn't know back then, but in 1999 we were coming towards the end of the time when the FA Cup was still regarded as a major occasion.
The following year, Manchester United withdrew from the competition to take part in the FIFA Club World Championships. And that is often described as the beginning of the end for the competition.
Of course, it's still going in the literal sense. Indeed, Man United are involved in fourth round action against Arsenal at the Emirates on Friday. That brought back memories of the famous 1999 replay between the teams at Villa Park.
It's a night when Ryan Giggs scored an epic solo goal. The maestro Dennis Bergkamp missed a penalty late on and Roy Keane was sent off.
Martin Keown was marshalling the Arsenal defence that night and on Wednesday, joined us on Off The Ball.
Among the interesting anecdotes he shared was his belief that Bergkamp would miss his penalty.
He clearly still remembers it well 20 years on. But do you? Below, I've left you a quiz and the simple task is to name the 22 starters from that 1999 replay!
