For two seasons I played along side Tim in defense for our local village side. He got me into the team and on my first game, said: ‘OK, Jason - here's how this works.

But we finished bottom of the league and conceded an average of eight goals a game. We once lost a game 22-1, and guess who scored our goal.

We can look back today, at the remarkable moments of 1999 and reminisce about the triumphs achieved and hope it may be achieved once again under ‘The Chosen One’ – David Moyes. Even with the consistent disappointments of the current season, losing all hope of winning any trophies and qualifying for the champions league next season. . One must draw inspiration from that incredible season and not let the Manchester United spirit of “never say die” fade away.

David Moyes should be given a fair chance to demonstrate his capability and inspire the team to its best potential in creating history.
