Thumbs up norman whiteside

chronically underappreciated talent, one of my favourite ever united players.

debut at 16, goals in both cup finals at 17, youngest player to play at a world cup at 17.

if not for the bottle and the injuries could have been one of the greats of the game, the lad had everything. hard as fucking nails as well.

ended up in midfield due to an injury crisis. Highbury I think - born for it.

Sad he had such a short time. Top lad as already said.

Don't think you can say that the skinhead was Underappreciated, Unfullfilled due to injury but as a player for utd he was immense and was rightly a cult hero.

The only thing I'd disagree with is that he had everything. I think he lacked one thing - pace.

With it, he'd have been one of the best in the world. Loved Sizeable Norm.

3-1 down at Anfield, send on Big Norm to stamp on McMahon, final score 3-3.
