    I was flicking through 442 mag in the newsagents yesterday and there was an article on Eric Cantona, it reckoned he never missed a penalty at United.

    I'm sure he missed one against Leeds at Bellend road??

    Anyone?

    Yeah he missed at bellend road.he then scored the fourth in what turned out to be wilkinsons last game as leeds manager.

    I feckin loved that game.The sound of poborskys shot hitting the back of the net.


    EDIT: I think he also missed against rangers in a pre season game

    Did he not chip it over the bar then get sent off?

    He did get sent off at Rangers, I think it was a dodgy decision though. I seem to remember Fergie spitting his dummy out and saying we wouldn't play them again in a friendly.

    I could be wrong.

    Can't remember which one but he has missed one competetively. He tried a chip and skied it. Similar to Crouch's against Jamaica.

    Yeah think that was the one he went to smash and kicked the floor first and ended up dragging it wide.
