    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...

    Ian Botham, either a hugely popular English cricketer or a hugely unpopular Cricket commentator

    or

    Bob Willis, menacing fast bowler, with a slightly odd run-up, also, a boring, lifeless drone who gets all the Sky Sports stuff that noone watches

    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.
