1) Ryan Giggs vs Veet
Even Giggsy himself refers to "the rug" when reminiscing about his iconic chest-baring during the 1999 FA Cup Semi-Final. In fairness, he had good reason to let it all out after his glorious solo winner against Arsenal sent Manchester United through to the final. "Sometimes it’s hard to control yourself," he later admitted to FFT. "I lost all feeling at the time and I just decided to whip my top off to go and celebrate. A few people gave me a bit of stick for my hairy chest but I just about got away with it because the goal was such a good one." Amen to that.
