It's 9:30 in the morning, my brain doesn't kick in till about midday. But you're right, I think it was Poborsky after his great Euros :/I don’t think his love for parties helped him too much...
Sharpe was a class player though, in his teens early 20 at least. Spoilt rotten for about 5 years with Giggs, Kanchelskis and Sharpe.
Strangely enough, after selling Kanchelskis and Sharpe in consecutive seasons, we became even better.
From 96 onwards, Beckham and Giggs were used as the wide players and I’m having a brain freeze as to who the back up players were. Blomqvist signed at the start of the treble season, so who were the reserve wingers from 96-98?
EDIT: didn’t we sign Poborsky and Cruyff in the summer that we sold Sharpe? I guess it was them.
I always remember the story about Ferguson turning up to a party looking for Giggs and Sharpe and them hiding in a wardrobe (I think)
