My favourite goal has to be his one in the FA Cup semi-final replay against Arsenal in 1999. That was a highlight of his career. It was a quality run and a great finish. To be so composed after such a long run was incredible and the celebrations afterwards were very memorable. It’s good that he’s stayed on at the club, obviously. For young players he knows their background more than the manager coming in. So it’s good for him to still be around to look after us lads who want to follow in his footsteps.
