VIDEO: PFA Award for Class of ’92

“It’s a Manchester United legacy,” said Gary Neville, “that this is a club that can be the biggest football club in the world, yet can bring through young players. There’s no excuse for any club not to follow this. The best teams produce their own players more often than not because they have that ingrained loyalty and desire to play for that club, to do everything, no matter what it takes, and that is Manchester United’s legacy. It’s not the class of 92′s legacy, it’s the manager, it’s Sir Alex Ferguson, it’s Sir Matt Busby, we’re just players that have come through it. They had the courage to implement that system.”

    “No players get to choose the manager” neville said. Hes wrong there its called Chelsea where fat frank and Terry call the shots!

    One of the greatest groups in European football history.

    Just fantastic. What a player group of fantastic kids. Nicky and Keith wow. Great to hear them speak about this. Lost them too early.

    Sir Alex is right, the old system was better.

    Let the best trial the entire country and pick who to bring on.

    What a great video clip,
    Really put a smile on my face!
    Would’ve liked to hear a bit more from Eric Harrison though!

    As an American, people continually ask me why I support MUFC. I joke that I’m a bandwagon fan, then I explain this history, the manager, the philosophy, the spirit, the numerous current ties to the US (sorry for those of you still on the tired old anti-Glazer train), etc. All of this to then mention the caliber of football we’re treated to week in week out.

    But videos like this really help to illustrate my points to the secular shootyhoops fanatics. I’ve enjoyed watching it, thanks for posting! Now, to show the numbskulls what they’re missing!

    you got that one totally right about chaveski
    i mean what a circus

  8. mmmansuy united says:

    Hahaha! I fucking love it… Shaktar’s manager saying City isn’t on their level!

    Hmm… Interesting of Barca to come out and say Messi wasnt injured. Said that Messi didnt play because he felt he could get injured. So, on day your team needed you the most, you wanted no part of it. Whether it was the decision of the coach or the player himself, it was rather disrespectful to the fans. I’m quite sure Ronaldo wasnt fully fit when he played against Dortmund, but he did anyway, so my respect for Barca & Messi just dropped a few notches

    May 2 1993

    Alex Ferguson learned ManUtd won the league and his first EPL title on this day in 1993. He was told by a fan (a complete stranger) Michael Lavender, while golfing with his son Mark.

    There is a nice write up about it on the BBC web site.

  11. Marq says:

    Xabi Alonso has 1 year left on his contract, age 31, might be a good consideration. I know he is not the type of box-to-box midfielder that many of us on here are looking for, but he sits deep, much like Carrick, and would be able to buy us that 2~3 years to groom the likes of Powell. Not to mention he can be a like for like rotation for Carrick, and gives us the long ball out wide option we have missed since Scholes disappeared from the scene.

    What do you guys think?

  12. slayer says:

    IMO, we have carrick to handle the job. Having another one like Xavi probably won’t be good for us since his age is almost the same as Carrick and he might be outpaced by players with speed. Spending the money on a player who is already at 31 is not really good considering we need the fund to rebuild the team. I think would have been better if we get a proven player in his 20s. Besides, when Powell is ready, perhaps we might 2 capable players which we could rotate to bring different style of playing.

  13. slayer says:

    *Xabi…. not Xavi….. typo error

  14. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Marq, 150+ games for Liverpool mate? Be a tough nut to swallow. Think he has lost a few yards of pace as well. Still a class lad, even when with them. I appreciated his level headed reaction to Macherano sending off at OT.

  15. Ian says:

    Interesting to hear Gary Neville say that coming through the ranks creates a degree of loyalty to the club. Perhaps it’s lost these days with examples like Fryers and Pogba.
