Donohue has it completely right. A fantastic filming feast for the Man U freak. Bryan Robson's marriage on the pitch was all the more poignant for the late appearance of Duncan Edwards as best man, replacing the clearly nervy Nobby Stiles. And who could blame Nobby on such an occasion, being only seventeen? Luckily, elder statesmen Beckham and Rooney were there to lend solace to boy wonder Cantona, French schoolboy and survivor of the Paris Commune who, as a veteran of Le Maquis, was the brightest of the Busby Babes, Ferguson's Northern Premier League conquerers of 2003. Cantona, of course, had received a poor reception during a poetry reading from fans of home town rivals the LA Lakers. Drinking Chocolate? I should coco. A must!
