Seemed to always play Leeds away on an early kick-off back then... Them and Liverpool seemed to be the only games at that time.
Alright mate, steady on

I'm sure it was a Saturday 3pm gig?

Your right, he missed 2 'competitive' ones. I remember him missing one against Glasgow Rangers in a friendly? That might be the Newcastle one up there?


Spot on for United

Thanks to our friends at Opta, we have taken a look at United's penalty record in the Barclays Premier League since Eric Cantona's arrival in 1992.
Cantona is perhaps considered the best spot-kick taker in the club's history, although he did miss on two occasions. The Frenchman's ability to send the goalkeeper the wrong way was a real skill and his tally of 14 in 16 matches is very impressive.


Louis Saha, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and Dimitar Berbatov all have 100 per cent records in the Barclays Premier League but Saha once failed from the spot in the last minute of a Champions League tie at Celtic.
Denis Irwin also enjoyed a fine run from 12 yards and even converted the rebound from one of the two he missed, against West Ham.





Louis Saha 4 out of 4 - 100%
David Beckham 2 out of 2 - 100%
Dimitar Berbatov 2 out of 2 - 100%
Ryan Giggs 2 out of 2 - 100%
Eric Cantona 14 out of 16 - 88%
Cristiano Ronaldo 11 out of 13 - 84%
Ruud van Nistelrooy 18 out of 22 - 82%
Denis Irwin 8 out of 10 - 80%
Wayne Rooney 13 out of 20 - 65%
Javier Hernandez 1 out of 2 - 50%
Robin van Persie 1 out of 2 - 50%
Paul Scholes 1 out of 3 - 33%
Teddy Sheringham 1 out of 3 - 33%
Michael Carrick 0 out of 1 - 0%
Nani 0 out of 1 - 0%
Dwight Yorke 0 out of 1 - 0%


We all remember Yorkies, remember his tongue anyway

In 1994 when he was sent then sent off for a two footed challenge?

Did Dennis only take 10?

Rooney's record is poor though goalkeepers' technique has probably improved

Shame that list doesn't include records pre Premier League. Steve Bruce was our main penalty taker in 1990-1991 and scored 10 or so in one season. Ended up with 19 goals in all competitions.

I have zero recollection of Rush playing for Leeds? That team sheet was awful.
