in his pomp as midfield general, United proved irresistible in 1995/96. Cantona led the way with 19 goals in all competitions, one of four men to reach double figures. He scored in six consecutive Premiership games through March and April as United faced down the faltering challenge of Newcastle United to take the title. And it was Cantona again, firing through a crowd scene at Wembley, to see off Liverpool in the FA Cup final to complete a second Double in three seasons. That season was the pinnacle of his time at Old Trafford.
At the end of the 1996/97, another title in the bag, but with the disappointment of a European semi-final exit
proving a tough cross to bear, he exited stage left. His deeds burn brightly and will never fade. Vive la resistance!
