Football Kanchelskis

One of my favourites growing up.

He's got a book out. If this extract is anything to go by, it will be grim drivel that reads as if written by a teenager.

The Guardian picture of him holding the FA Cup celebrating United's 1996 win.

Did you ever try Robbo's book? He is my all time fave, but my God his bio was unreadable. It was like something a 12 year old would turn into a teacher on how they spent their Summer.

"The screening of football matches in the Soviet Union was very basic. There would be absolutely no build-up and no full-time analysis."

Sounds great to me tbh.

the book, however, reads like a Jamie Jackson article run through Google translate half a dozen times.

Recent revelations/allegations would suggest that he was so fast because, as a young sportsman in the USSR in the 1980s, he would have been doped to the eyeballs.

Great, just, pissed all over some more of my happy teenage memories.

Used to love Andrei. Remember his first goal - screamer of a left-foot volley direct from a corner at the Stretford End. Winter 1991, give or take IIRC (??)

I was working in the Casinos in and around Manchester back then, he was often in gambling for pretty high stakes.
