"Cantona looks the business but, in my opinion, he's a flashy foreigner. He'll score two goals for United.. when they are two up. But don't look for him to get in there when it hurts or to decide a game and be a matchwinner."

Oooh-Arrgh Cantona

Also in The Independent, Phil Shaw stated: "If Leeds fans are disappointed, those from Manchester United are likely to be savouring the opportunity of watching one of the Premier League's undoubted crowd-pleasers. His popularity will know no bounds if he can help cure their recent malaise. However, the move does place a question mark over the futures of Mark Hughes and Brian McClair, whom United have relied upon to provide the goals."

Of course, both Hughes and McClair did continue to contribute to the Reds' success even if Shaw was spot on about Cantona's popularity.
