    Excellent interview from Sky.

    All 4 of them came across as sound blokes especially Ole.

    The amount of man-love I have for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is quite worrying.

    I enjoyed that

    Now if you could choose between the 1999 set of strikers and the current set we have now to have at our club today, who would you pick?

    The thing is, I've never seen a partnership like Yorke and Cole in my time of watching this club. The understanding between them was scary and a delight to watch. Played some orgasmic football together. Even Rooney-Tevez-Ronaldo weren't as fun to watch as these two.

    While individually I'd rate RVP and Rooney as better players than both, partnership wise they were 2nd to none.

    Was surprised to hear Cole say there was no animosity when everyone knows that he and Teddy loathed each other and weren't on speaking terms.

    It was the, we need a goal? "I'll just put Ole on." Absolutely brilliant!

    In 1999, I was a hyperactive 10 year old boy who only cared about playing football. I had little to no interest in watching it.

    Boy do I regret that now:(

    Super stuff.

    Loved Cole and Yorke together... of everything Yorke did for us, one of the big things was make Andy Cole a better all-round footballer.

    As a foursome I rate the 99' higher. Solskjaer gets compared with Hernandez but Ole was a superior player, he had way more to his game than the Mexican. Yorke and Cole were a dream partnership and Teddy was the football brain. All different types of players.

    RVP and Rooney are clearly the best 2 strikers of the entire 8 but I feel as a 4 the 99' side had more variety and any combination between the 4 worked. I would not feel as comfortable seeing Welbeck and Hernandez leading the line in a huge game as I would with Ole or Teddy.

    Amazing really the stuff Ole remembers. Like how the goals against Forest were like. I mean, I remember it too, but I watched it dozens of times because I'm a daft supporter.

    Wish I'd been old enough to properly appreciate this season. I've watched all the DVDs going about it, but it's not the same as being there week in, week out watching it. I watched a few games from that season on TV but not many, I would have loved to watch those 4 strikers. Especially the Yorke-Cole partnership.

    I just can't see anyone else but OGS taking over from Sir Alex when he finally goes, he's just the perfect fit, from the way he thinks, the way he talks, the way he acts, he is already in my mind our next manager.

    I can maybe see Ole as our manager one day, in 10 years or something, but not as Sir Alex's replacement.
