For a chance to win one of two 1999 treble-winning shirts signed by Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole, and to see the outtakes from the above video, head over to bwin’s Facebook page.

    the ball seems to be much higher in the air before they cut to the other angle though…

    one thing i notice when i watch welbeck is he always seems reluctant when he’s in a position to cross the ball,especially when the best thing to do is to cross instead of cutting the ball back,which is what he does a lot.

  8. King Eric says:

    Wow. Not a bad volley at the end there by Rooney.

  9. Arthur "Two Sheds" Jackson says:

    Great video! Great to see Cole and Yorke together again!

  10. Jay says:

    Excellent, Yorke and Cole still have that friendship. They were best partnership I have ever seen.
    Pity van Persie wasn’t there.

  11. Dela says:

    Quality video. So many fond memories of Cole and Yorke up front :-)

  12. Tope99 says:

    The one were Rooney tries to do a bicycle kick and misses the ball completely was so hilarious

    That was fucking class! Bust out laughing at the shot stright of his dome! Haha. Great vid!

  14. invertedquestionmark says:

    Great to see them having fun together. It’s important to be serious and devoted, but it’s also important to be able to relax.

  15. The Left Bank says:

    @invertedquestionmark – well said.

    Fun video indeed. The Yorke/Cole partnership was awesome in their prime. Welbeck looks out of sorts in that video. Great to see them all have fun though.

  16. alfREDo says:

    You can’t help but smile watching that vid!

  17. Reddy says:

    The story of Rooney’s career at United really…twice a clown, once a genius
