  • The ex-United player’s lot: they stay top, you stay wistful

    By Andy Cole 29 January 2010 Imagine this scenario: you’re in the second leg of the League Cup semi-final, playing against Manchester United, your former club with whom you won the Champions League, and then you score a goal – not a bad goal at all, as it happens – which at the moment you […]
