Your questions for Mickey T
Our series of former player interviews continues this week when ex-United midfielder Mickey Thomas will be answering your questions.
Signed from his local club Wrexham in North Wales, Mickey Thomas
made 110 appearances and scored 15 goals for United between 1978 and 1981.
In his first season, 1978/79, he helped the Reds to reach the FA Cup final, setting up a goal for Jimmy Greenhoff in the semi-final replay victory over Liverpool at Goodison Park. United were then unlucky to lose 3-2 to Arsenal at Wembley after coming back from 0-2 down to level at 2-2 through Sammy McIlroy and Gordon McQueen.
Mickey was among United's top scorers in his second season, 1979/80, netting eight goals including one in a home victory over Liverpool. However the Merseysiders had the last laugh in the title race, pipping Thomas and co by just two points.
After a difficult third campaign when United could only finish eighth, Mickey moved on to Everton. He later played for Chelsea, Stoke City and Wrexham (again) among numerous other clubs. He also earned more than 50 caps for Wales.
Mickey maintains his links with United today as a regular pundit on MUTV. He also sees every first-team match in his role as co-commentator for MUTV Online's live radio coverage, courtesy of Key 103. Please post your questions for Mickey on manutd.com/talkingreds - in the Legends forum
- and we'll put the best ones to him on your behalf.
