Cantona's and Karel's goal celebrations that day.

Lovely. Just lovely.

Wasn't that the game that finished off Howard Wilkinson? Got tin-tacked off the back of that IIRC..

Yup.

I went to that game - it was like a bad day in Beirut trying to get in through the turnstile, bottles and bricks flying everywhere. Matters were not particularly helped by us being 4 blokes with 3 adult & a junior ticket and a pedantic Leeds c*** on the gate.

We almost got done one the way out back to town. My mate got spotted crossing the motorway bridge by a guy from work who's a Leeds fan & part of a hefty mob waiting on the other side of the bridge. Luckily, he gave my mate a nod and we sailed through to the nearest pub, where we started a rendition of "Wilko's on the dole.." which proved very popular with the locals...

You can tell they'd like to, but don't for fear of a big Gallic boot in the chest

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
Van Persie definitely scored more than 1. He scored at Anfield and the Emirates for a start
