In this century, with the changes, acceleration, commercialization and even perfection of sports, the past year has been in Michael Jordan’s “Last Dance” and Mike Tyson (Mike Tyson) Examples such as the return of the empire show that people still fondly remember the ancient times. That’s why in Retrosportiva’s new index section, we go back in time and recall the athletes, clubs and events that were fascinated by the world 20, 30 or 50 years ago.
Today, we will remember Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke, one of the most offensive two people in football history. They helped Manchester United dominate English football and won the order in 1999. The shocking Triple Crown finally reached its culmination in the unforgettable turn of events in the Champions League final against Bayern.
Chemistry is the most important. Without the chemistry of football, just like the chemistry in life, you will not be able to expect anything. The duo of Manchester United legends proved to us that having the best and most expensive stars does not necessarily require outstanding results. The key is to find the winning combination, and Sir Alex Ferguson found it by accident.
In the late 1990s, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole were probably the best tandem motorcycles in the world, because since they first met in Fergie United’s locker room, they There is an urgent need to click. Neither of them is the best, or even the best, but being together is hell for the opponent. It was love at first sight, and the chemical reaction between the two forwards made the famous club at Old Trafford the most successful season in history.
If you have watched these duo matches at least once and weakened the opponent’s defense, then you will agree that their relationship and cooperation on the pitch is similar to the telepathy that can be achieved in football.
Before 1999, most English clubs in Europe played only minor roles. The trauma after Hazel leaves its mark, and the alliance that ruled the Old World in the 1970s and 1980s had to start from scratch. It was difficult at first. In the days when the Champions League started, the team relegation of the English was standard, and fans were humiliated every day.
He was not the favorite in the 1998/99 United. Ferguson has built a good team that can cope with the Premier League, but he is equipped with many questionnaires when he plays in Europe.
But the historic journey of Manchester United that season finally culminated in the Champions League final at the Nou Camp, when Bayern fell with an illusory turn in the last few seconds, which not only changed Britain, but also changed European football. Manchester United became the champion, and the large amount of money invested in the Premier League began to pay off. From that moment on, the transfer policy on the island turned 180 degrees. The best players in the world are no longer exhausted stars, but began to enter the Premier League. Soon the British returned the anger of the Belgian capital Liverpool gangsters in the Belgian Champions Cup final against Juventus. Gone their victory-domination.
Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke are Manchester United’s most powerful weapons in this golden adventure, but this partnership is not the pinnacle of the perfectionist Ferguson studio project. It is a relationship created by accident, and this relationship has changed the world football order to a large extent. In layman’s terms, the amazing cascade of Cole-York is not what the famous Scots thought of. Moreover, Ferguson didn’t even want York at first. He recruited Patrick Kluivert (Patrick Kluivert) for a long time, but this outstanding young Ajax man prefers to go to his Amsterdam teacher Louis van Gaal at the Nou Camp Dutch colony established. It was not until he got the basket from Kluivert that Fergus decided to buy an interesting but by no means special Aston Villa shooter from Trinidad and Tobago. He combined him with a dressing Pair of jewels already owned in the room.
Andy Cole (Andy Cole) started his career at Arsenal’s youth school, loaning him to Fulham and Bristol as a child. When he realized that he would not get a real chance at Arsenal, in 1993 he signed the then second division Newcastle, which proved to be a remarkable move. He is Kevin Keegan’s favorite and he became one of England’s most powerful forwards in the match against Peter Beardsley. Cole scored an incredible 34 goals in 41 league games in St. Louis (St. James’ Park). The Magpies returned to the Premier League and won the first place. Three. Newcastle became the new upcoming force on the island, and Cole continued to suffer in the second season, which proved that his debut in the Classic is by no means a coincidence.
By January 1995, Kerr had scored 15 goals in 27 games in all competitions, including four goals in the UEFA Cup. Enough to attract the attention of Alex Ferguson. The Scot wants to replace Mark Hughes with a young, more dynamic forward who has performed well in tight spaces. This is important because all the teams at Old Trafford that used bunkers for games closed down and shrunk the pitch. Ferguson needed Cole, and the famous Scotsman at the time paid him a record price of 6 million pounds, plus Keith Gillespie.
Newcastle fans were shocked. Their idol became a traitor overnight. A fan cut off his entire thigh with a knife because his hi-in shirt had a big tattoo of Andy Cole (Andy Cole). The fans occupy St. James’ Park and Keegan and Cole had to walk in front of them to explain the transfer decision.
Cole became a complete player at Old Trafford and then won the invitation of the national team for the first time in the game against Uruguay. But despite the impressive statistics and excellent pedigree, Andy Cole’s career has never been more remarkable. He only played 15 games on the jersey with three lions on his chest. Glenn Hoddle (Glenn Hoddle) led England from 1996 to 1999. He was not a fan of Cole, but spread the story in public that he didn’t need a striker, and the striker only had eight chances. Can score a goal.
