Goosebumps watching that Keane video. If I had to pick one player to have eternal Manchester United life it would probably be him.==============1993-94==============
Once you get the taste for it...
Massive domestic success followed title winning 92-93 season. League, FA Cup and Charity Shield were won, and we've reached the final of the League Cup, only to be stopped by Aston Villa. Reached only the second round of European Cup though, where Galatasaray went through on away goals.
Only signing of the season (but what a signing!) was future captain, Roy Keane. Joined us for a record fee od 3.75 million pounds from Nottingham Forest.
Dominating midfielder immidiately had an impact upon his arrival by scoring or providing 22 goals in his first season. But you don't think about stats when you think about Roy Keane. You think about his aggressiveness and leadership which helped him excel as a team captain from 1997 (Eric Cantona's retirement) all the way to 2005 when he left the club. Spent some time at Celtic before his own retirement. After playing career he went into managerial waters, and is currently an assistant coach to Paul Lambert in Aston Villa. Also, can be seen as a pundit on ITV occasionally.
You mean career totals? Sure, planning multiple misc tables after the seasons are done.Brilliant thread!
Seeing as you're doing this in your spare time with nothing to gain I feel obliged to make demands of you. Will you make a list with all the players that are featured and their total? This will probably be the only place on the net that will have all these statistics side by side (especially assists). Would be nice to see that comparison.
You say it like Nani doesn't provide assists. Has the same assist per game ratio as Beckham (0,32 vs 0,33)Brilliant this.
Just goes to show how awesome we were back then. Giggs and Beckham providing goals on a plate season after season. My god.
Now compare that to having Valencia, Nani and Young on the wings for the past 2 seasons. Torture.
People talk of the CM issue being one of the big reasons we are in this state. But our wings(attacking side) are just as much to blame for. Thankfully we got Di Maria now.
Cantona, Cole, Solskjaer, Sheringham, Yorke, Ruud, Rooney, Saha, RvP, Falcao. Lota of goals in them.
Thank you for this Mrs Smoker. Looking forward for the rest.
That came in March 2011. He got injured at the Emirates in January 2012 (I think) which put him out until the last few games, but his first half of the 2011/12 season was up there with his 2010/11 form. Even when he came back towards the end of the season he was great in the 4-4 against Everton, then just faded away from there on in with all those niggling injuries. Although 10 goals and assists in 21 starts in 2012/13 is more than I thought he'd got, not a bad return that.Jaysus, Nani's form really did fall off a cliff at some point in 2012. Was that when carragher assaulted him?
