B. Paul Scholes, Middlesbrough 3 United 4, League, Riverside Stadium, 11.4.00
Does nobody on the Boro coaching staff watch Match of the Day? Scholes runs onto Gary Neville's square pass and smashes an unstoppable shot between two defenders and as close to the inside of the right-hand post as is possible.
C. David Beckham, West Ham 2 United 2, League, Upton Park, 26.08.00
Thirty yards from goal, our deadball king strikes a familiar pose - back arched, left arm out, standing leg seeming sure to buckle - and bends the ball viciously from a position outside Shaka Hislop’s left-hand post into the top corner.
D. David Beckham, Man City 0 United 1, League, Maine Road, 18.11.00
Again the technique was flawless and the opposition keeper was left floundering as Becks arced the ball from right to left, wide of City's pathetic excuse for a wall and across the helpless Nicky Weaver.
E. Paul Scholes, United 3 Panathinaikos 1, Champions League, OT, 21.11.00
After a glance at the keeper – off his line, just! – Scholes arcs the sweetest of chips from right to left into the far corner. The perfect way to cap a 32-pass move – such simplicity of conception and elegance of execution.
