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 f***ing 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.
