Default Retro-Fred: Cole 1995-1998

What would the reaction have been like on here if Fred existed then?

Would he have been slated for missing simple chances, would posters be pining for a different striker and complaining about the record fee?

Or would most have saged him as being a quality striker for us?

Hated him for the first 3 years or so and slated him relentlessly.

And then pretended I always knew he was quality once he joined up with Yorke.

The final straw for me was the 96 FAC final when he was clean through and somehow knee-balled it 20 yards wide.

In fact that season was more of a struggle for him than the original 6 months had been. He started improving after that tho.

Total balls. Watch the 95-96 season review again and look at the number of goals he creates for others.

He improved as soon as Eric retired. Those 2 did not really fit together, which is strange given how easily Cole formed partnerships with most other forwards he played with, pre and post Utd.

94/95-he looked good in those 18 games. No Eric.
95/96-Poor season.
96/97-broken legs.
97/98, excellent season, a highlight would be his destruction of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the cup.

probably not helped by cantona's refusal to pass to him.

must have learned from cantona, though, because he started scoring cheeky chips as well as poacher's goals.
