Opposing the pedestrianisation of Norwich city centre!!!!

:lol: He was good at free kicks and long passes. That's it.

I cant believe he's not mentioned that Danish keeper or Stam. Don't forget Veron. My mistake he was world class before he went to United. Although he was only there for a short while what about Henrik Larsson?

The best footballer Ferguson ever managed was Paul Scholes.

Making goonerz cry
He also stated Mourinho had given his word to Chelsea before United came calling. That puts to bed the myth he sat crying into his hands when Utd turned him down.

To an extent I kind of agree. I mean there are definitely more than those 4 (certainly players like Stam, RIo, Schmeichel and van Nistelrooy deserve a nod), but a lot of the players Fergie had weren't world class, first team player in any team, genuine world beaters. A lot of them were just talented players with the right motivation.

Not at all him trying to save face for recommending Moyes. Not a chance.

Eric Cantona was a flat track bully who could only do it in the EPL, because he was next to useless for United in the CL, as for omitting Schmeichel, that is a joke because he is one of the best GK to have ever played the game.

RVN was more world class than all but Ronaldo. Rio is a good call too. What was amazing about Fergie was that he didn't need many world class players to win things. But maybe there weren't that many world class players in England anyway.

van der Sar is another I think many have overlooked.

English clubs were hampered by the 3 foreign player rule that included Wales and Scotland, United were crap as a whole in Europe until that changed. When it did we did well with Cantons, unfortunately it came too late as that was towards the end of his career.

27 continental club games, 9 goals career total. 3 in 10 games in his, and the clubs, best season in Europe. 5 CL goals in total for Man Yoo. Not great is it? When you compare that to someone like, oh I dunno, Shearer... let's go with Shearer, who played his European football for a minnow but still managed 32 goals in 56 appearances, it really does start to show just how far from a world class forward Cantona was. Also telling that he retired very early to go muck about on beaches playing football against a bunch of milkmen. Bloke is more myth than legend imvho.

Hello mate, thanks for contributing to the discussion. Did you know Alan Shearer equalled Cantona's best ever CL season haul in just 36 minutes against the finalists from the previous years competition?

Cantona wasn't an out an out striker like Shearer. Eric had a free role where he excelled in leading young men to glory year on year. :hail:

Eric Cantona's European Record: 27 games 9 goals.

Shola Ameobi's European Record: 51 games, 15 goals.

Remarkably similar :pond:

You forgot to add the quotation marks around European after Shola's name to denote sarcasm.

Sholagol ruined Barca single handedly in his pime. He has more European goals to his name than Sunderland AFC. Don't play games with me pal.

I preferred Lua Lua, especially when he scored that winner against you while he was on loan from you because someone was too stupid to put a no compete clause in the deal.
