Recalling Lee Sharpe's heroics as Man United thumped Arsenal 24 years ago

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson breaks down how Manchester United will line up given their recent run of injuries.

Manchester United's game at Arsenal on Saturday is the latest chapter in one of English football's greatest rivalries and, for the visiting fans, will conjure memories of a famous night almost 24 years ago to the day.

On Nov. 28, 1990, Alex Ferguson's United side visited Arsenal's old Highbury ground for a League Cup fourth-round tie ... and won 6-2.

Lee Sharpe, then a 20-year-old winger, was the Highbury hero, scoring a hat trick that put him on the fast track to stardom and celebrity as a "pop...

From a Wembley Q&A to catching up with Ryan Giggs and David Moyes

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti doesn't believe David Moyes will be joining Real Sociedad any time soon.

"Have you ever had a price put on your head?"

I had just done an hour's talk at Wembley Stadium to 150 students from the University College of Football Business degree course. One of its leaders is Richard Flash, who was once a young professional at Manchester United and is now in academia.

While the Wembley pitch was being prepared for an NFL game on one of the warmest October days recorded, I spoke to the students about journalism, travel and sportswriting.

They enjoyed the tales about being abducted...

Footballers never forget their first-team debuts

Relive some of the most memorable moments from Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi's 10-year career at the Camp Nou.

Lionel Messi made his Barcelona debut a decade ago, on Oct. 16, 2004. I remember it well, sitting in the main stand at Barcelona's Olympic Stadium during a derby against Espanyol. Barca's No. 30 replaced Deco for the last eight minutes; Barca won 1-0. He sported a heavy fringe and wore a shirt that looked too big for him as it flapped in the wind of the exposed stadium atop the hill of Montjuic. Messi saw a lot of the ball, but not everyone was happy for him. His teammates in Barca B had hoped that...

Away fans deserve more consideration from football's authorities

Only a select number of fans were fortunate enough to be in attendance for CSKA Moscow's home Champions League match versus Bayern Munich.
Only a select number of fans were fortunate enough to be in attendance for CSKA Moscow's home Champions League match versus Bayern Munich.

David Sykes, 49, follows Manchester City and England home and away. He's watched City in 30 different countries, one of their hardcore fans who will travel to watch their team if they play a friendly in Abu Dhabi (as they did in May) or a League Cup game in England. One reason Sykes started watching England was because City seldom travelled abroad.

"That has all changed now," he laughs. He's enjoying City's current successes but he still watches England. The former British Army combat medic, who...

Roy Keane's book launch - LIVE

A fight with Peter Schmeichel and details of his departure from Manchester United are covered in Roy Keane's second autobiography.

Join ESPN FC's Alex Shaw and Kevin Palmer on the day of Roy Keane's official book launch in Dublin. Kevin's there at the Aviva Stadium ahead of the official launch and will provide the best lines from what promises to be an intriguing afternoon. Give him a follow: @kpsundayworld.

While Keane gets in early, Sir Alex Ferguson is due to speak as well so he's bound to have a pop back at his former skipper, with their once strong bond in tatters.

Get involved -- comments are at the bottom while you can...

Burnley's strange history of fisticuffs between players and managers

It may not be the most famed ground in the world, but even Burnley's Turf Moor has its share of fascinating tales.

Football journalist is a glamorous job, right? You may have read my recent dispatches from Chicago, Los Angeles and Barcelona. Well, try this one, which is being written sitting in a rental car outside Burnley Football Club. I have a deadline to meet, and journalists don't miss deadlines.

A persistent drizzle is obscuring the view of the hills that surround the town, the smallest in England with a Premier League team. People walk past every few minutes looking in and probably thinking that I'm an...
