26 May 1999 will forever remain etched in my mind. More than 13 years later, memories of that day still tingles my spine.
Sheringham had just scored the equaliser and I just had beer splashed all over me from maybe half a dozen rows above me. Some of us had to check around to find out who it was who scored.
We were still celebrating when Beckham took another corner, Sheringham again got to it first and nodded it to Solskjaer to guided it up the inside roof of the net.
He was one of Old Trafford‘s most loved legends. His four goal sub appearance against Forest in a 12 minute spell, was also something I’d remember for a long time. Fergie said that was possible because while on the bench Solskjare was always studying match progress and analysing the pattern of play. That trait is probably what is setting him up as a successful manager.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now been touted as a manager for Bolton. He has already achieved success in Norway. Always a well liked figure, who knows – one day this Old Traffor legend may return to pace the sidelines. He wont be dishing any hairdryer treatments though – it would more likely be a deathly stare of a baby-faced assassin.
