I'll be honest, I've thought many times that he was aiming for a cross, but, well... Nicky Hammond sure as thought he was crossing it, and it even looked like it was a cross at one point, then the ball swung.
And apart from Cantona's incredible one against Arsenal the same season, I saw no better strike from someone in a Man U shirt between '94 and '98. Better goals resulting from build-up, yes, but none better purely for the strike.
Mark Hughes vs Sheff Wed in '94 was a thunderbolt. Beckham against Wimbledon in '96 was also OK and quite famous. ;)
Cantona again against Wimbledon, during '93 was OK too. On the chest and volleyed past the keeper.
Yeah, Beckham against Wimbledon was a bit special, but didn't have the romanticism of either Cantona or Parker.
Hughes vs Sheff Wed in 1994\95 or 1993\94? If 1993\94 falls outside my scope... and don't know whether I remember the goals from our games vs Sheff Wed in 1994\95 either.
A Cantona goal in 1995\96 also features my favourite piece of commentary on a Man U goal, too...
"Hit the heels of Williams... ... ... ... ... ... ... Cantona! Yes!"
Could also be a politican on the Gold Coast who is opposing the construction of a building promoting questionable practices 201m from a Church... :ph34r: :mellow:

And you could say the opposite for Geoff Boycott.
Just thought I'd dig this up as I notice Jack Hobbs is now turning out for Leicester City.
We have a nine year old left arm spinner at my club called Jack Hobbs.
Am so not going to be able to keep a straight face if/when I end up keeping to him on 4th XI debut in four years etc, etc.
