Favourite United player: Paul Scholes
What advice would you give Fergie: Don’t take advice from strangers
Favourite United Goal: John O’Shea. 2005. Highbury. An implausibly perfect end to one of my favourite games ever.
Where will United finish this season:
94, 99 or 08?: The joyous anarchy of ’99 just beats the orchestrated beauty of ’08. Drama all over the place (the United way), and Dwight Yorke is a national hero for me. Beckham was incredible that season.
Premier League player you admire the most: He may play for City but I find it impossible not to like Vincent Kompany. On the field, he’s an excellent penalty box defender, and is as important to them as Vidic is to us. Off the field, he comes across as a profoundly decent and highly intelligent chap.
