He was indeed. He took us to the lane for reserve games mostly to begin with and coincidentally my first away game was Hull city.At least you only had to wait 2 weeks for your first victory over Wednesday Is/was your dad a unitedite, if you don’t mind me asking? And belated birthday wishes
Well spotted and well observed. An even better example (for me, if you get my drift) coming shortly. When was the last time the Lane crowd applauded an opposition player, other than ex-Blades? Kabba?Loved the piece about Joe Shaw at the end .
One of the hallmarks of a truly great player is that of being recognised and appreciated by opposition supporters as someone special . Such admiration is usually reserved for exciting , attacking flair players and the fact that the Geordie fans on that day recognised it in a slightly built centre half is credit to them .

Didn’t go to that game, so I didn’t know it. I was going to say that a friendly shouldn’t count, but the League Cup early rounds have always been rather like friendlies, so I’ll give you that one!Pretty certain Shaqiri got applauded when we played Stoke in a pre season friendly a couple of years ago
You’ll have to wait Spoiler alert: do our Board’s initiatives usually work?Says in one of the programme notes United were due to play Eintracht Frankfurt on a Thursday night and a crowd of 30,000 would be needed to cover the cost of getting the Germans to BDTBL it is unlike our directors to take such a financial gamble
Did it pay off I wonder ?
i still remember that final at hampden it was the most unbelievable performance by real madrid never seen anything like it absolutely brilliant football
