  6. g-man says:

    Great player for United but a lot of his goals were pretty ugly eh.

  7. feedthatllama says:

    what a fantastic video that is

  8. Theredarmy says:

    Lethal exquisite touch from our old no 7.Good times indeed

    SUPER ERIC was what I used to call him. Absolute LEGEND. BY FAR the most charismatic Number 7 we have ever had. His celebrations were so hilarious sometimes. The one against leeds as Elland Road was the funniest. LMAO. Then there was the sunderland one.

    Also some of the assists that he got from our players were just FCKING FANTASTIC. Beckham’s sublime cross against Leicester deceiving THREE players. Giggsy’s legendary ball through for Cantona’s second at Elland Road. Those were awesome times. Hopefully a return to those days is on the cards again.

    An electrifying player. But you can see why the rest of the league found him a pariah.

    Still has to be the number one most influential player ever to play football

    1 year at Leeds, they win the title. He leaves, they don’t win again
    Arrives at OT, We win the title 4 times in 5 years.
    The year he misses, we don’t win it, he comes back, we win it.

    One struggles to grasp the enormity of that influence.
    Luckily, we had the incredible youth side coming on that kept us going after that. But Eric definitely served as the catalyst.

    Worked out some stats on the 1992 season. We were struggling until we signed Eric, started winning even v Arsenal with Eric in the stands. Went on to win the league for the first time in 26 years:

    1992-93 Season.
    Before Cantona (16 games) 6W 4L 5D
    After Cantona (26 games) 19W 1L 6D including Arsenal game with Eric in the stands.

    Result= Mid table to 1st title in 26yrs!

    Kudos to Anton Alfy for another great video. Anton the master mixologist!

    Great goals from a legend, it makes sense to me

  12. FletchTHEMAN says:

    If you want a trip down memory lane, watch this video as well. How Eric came to United.

    Favorite quote: ” That Oh Ah Cantona, We’ll never sing it here! ” :lol:

    Would loved to have seen a few more seasons of ole and Eric, they didn’t half play well together.

  14. Proverb says:

    “Shinji Kagawa (knee) could be available for
    Manchester United, although the Japanese playmaker
    may feature from the bench if he is fit enough for a
    place in the squad.”

    Thought he was out till christmas

  15. 2ole7egend says:

    I would of loved to have seen a few more seasons of Ole and Eric together! He finished his career way too early!

  16. 2ole7egend says:

    does anybody know where I can get my hands on the ’99 final?

  17. Goat Peticoat says:

    Proverb
    Thats like a tsunami out of the blue mate, didn’t see that coming.

  18. United Till I Die says:

    Quality. Cantona was something else. Always thought he retired too soon, but you can’t knock his logic behind it. He left United at the top of his game.

    @Fletch – Fergie’s statue is a spitting image of him in 1992.

  19. Esteban says:

    Off-topic, but some stats about relative strength of schedule for Utd and City so far this season. If you look at games against members of last year’s top 8 (city, utd, arse, spurs, newcastle, chelsea, everton, pool):

    Man Utd – played 6 (2 home, 4 away), won 4, lost 2, drew 0, 12 points (2 points/game)
    Man City – played 4 (2 home, 2 away), won1, lost 0, drew 3, 6 points (1.5 points/game)

    Really impressive given our injuries so far this year and City’s Yaya-less ACON period coming up (although he has looked pretty poor to me this year).

  20. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Le magnifique.. Left an unforgettable stamp not just on united but also in general football. He seems to have a unique presence on the pitch, he thought differently and played differently. One of the reason why he settled so well at united was because fergie understood a player of his stature and knew that to utilise him to his maximum ability, he had to make the fulcrum of the team. The talisman/key man. Fergie didn’t stick in a rigid position on the pitch, he allowed eric to express that inner artist, explains why united got more out of him than any other club.

    Haha goat
    Anything can happen if you have our medical team on board
    I’m taking it with a pinch of salt, but hey, like I said our medical team are either horrendous or genius

  23. Goat Peticoat says:

    The human body is a funny thing my friend and even worse is the human mind. Players scared of losing their place in the squad dont relay information to those that need to know thinking the time between games will be enough time to heal only to drop a bollock. Medical staff who graduate from one university or other falling behind on their studies thinking theyve made it and are in with the in crowd and end up shafting our boys with some out dated quackery. Sir Alex maybe “not listening” to a player who has concerns rather “believing he said differently” when an important match comes up. Lost in translation and the shere randomness of it all.
    I mean I can take a shite with a cable the thickness of popeyes arm but when I want to prod around to make things more pleasurable and milk the beast I end up screaming roof tiles down. Wheres the logic in that. Should I consult a doctor or should I hope it gets better with time. Its a fucking medical mystery. Glad Im the other side of things in regards white coats.

    When the seagulls…

  25. Bobby Charlton's combover says:

    @costas – are you referring to Eric or Goat?

  26. Costas says:

    @Bobby Charlton’s combover

    I was referring to Eric, but that saying probably applies to the Goat too. ;)

  27. belfast red. says:

    Ill be drinking a drink to Eric the king tonight! Great vid.

  28. alfREDo says:

    1966 was a great year for English football…
    …Eric Cantona was born!!

  29. MisterDavid says:

    I still don’t get how his penalties always sent the keeper the wrong way. Eric had strange powers.
