Got them Aardvark! Some interesting choices...

The only one we are missing now is Tarquin. Dont think he's been around this week yet?

Champions League - 1999.....


Damn right!
if memory serves me then i think they got past Bayern, Barcelona, Brondby, Inter, Juventus and Bayern again in the final.....all without losing a single game home or away. That campaign really has to be the most impressive in modern times.
I also agree with ur point that Sir Alex has earned the right to retire at his own will........

That campaign was indeed - wonderful
I have the 98/99 season review on dvd, I never tire of watching it!! The comeback against Juve in the semi was amazing!

Sorry about the absence guys, I'll have my scores for you shortly:

The question about Ferguson will always remain the following:
If Bob Paisely, Bill Shankly, Brian Clough or Matt Busby had been given free reign and had managed the richest club in the world for nearly 20 years would they only have one Euopean Cup to show for it? The answer is no and is the reason why Ferguson's place in the history of the game might not be as good as Ferguson himself believes.

The 1999 win was by his own admission complete fluke and they maybe should have been thrown out of the competition after the disraceful manner in which their final group game was concluded. The money he had spent the previous summer was also very steep: Yorke, Stam, Blomquvist and I think there was one more.

Fergie has to win the league next season whilst ensuring that the team reaches the Quarters or Semis of Champions League so he is under pressure next season. If the United board had been brave enough to get rid of him last year I am quite confident that Mourinho would have chosen United over Chelsea.

We're getting told that there's no transfer money for next year but I'm not sure how the team is going to finish above Chelsea or progress further in the Champions League without Ferguson being able to replace Keane, Scholes or Caroll.

Oh yeah - it was a fluke - no question. But all the same!!

I understand what ur saying Tarquin, I just can't believe that Gill would come out saying sth like this, at such an important time in the season. Who knows, it could push Fergie towards the door even more. Maybe that's what he intended. But right now, i'm glad Sir Alex wants to stay on another couple of yrs - I really couldnt think of anyone else at the helm right now, and it's gonna feel so strange when there is....

...that little line just reminded me how I felt at the start of the season, when Hughes/Ince and Kanchelskis all went...
Especially Kanny - he's a great fave. of mine. And on Day 1 we lost 3-1 at Aston Villa
BUT the kids came in - and won the double and grew in to millionaire European Cup winners! So I guess there was a bright side!


(aaah...the memories).....

Schmeichel

Parker
Pallister
Bruce
Irwin

Kanchelskis
Keane
Ince
Giggs

Hughes
Cantona

....How the hell didnt that team win the Champions League?!!!

you know, if girls swapped jerseys at the end of every match, I am pretty certain there would be a lot more guys watching. At least thats my guess.

As for lampard, I do think he is overrated. However John Terry is great. Went out on the beer with him a few years ago, alongside Jon Harley when he played for Chelsea. Finished at 6am on a Thursday morning (Terry played on the following Saturday!)
