These aren’t quite as classic as part one, but still worth a look:

Frozen in time (part 1)

Posted by Yacoob on July 11, 2006

Something I love about pictures is how the amazing moments can be captured – time frozen, the moment preserved, all in the image that was taken at exactly the right split-second. Here’s some of the best examples I’ve collected:




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scores the goal that wins United the Champions League.




After a rough few years of injury, Solskjaer returns to the United side on Boxing Day, 2005. I’m hoping he’ll play a big part of United’s success next season. He’s one of my favourite United players.




Peter Schmeichel pulls off an amazing save against Tottenham.




Jonty Rhodes soars to fame in the 1992 World Cup.

Heroes of yester-year

Posted by Yacoob on July 10, 2006

With the World Cup over, I thought it’d be good to remind you not of today’s stars, but those from previous years.

First up is one of my all-time favourites, Andrei Kanchelskis. One of the reasons I liked United so much back then was their play from the wings, with Giggs and Kanchelskis being the fastest and best dribblers I’ve ever seen.


Next is one of Italy’s all-time greats, Roberto Baggio. He was their star of the 1994 World Cup. It’s a pity he’s remembered for missing the final penalty, rather than the 5 goals he scored to get Italy to the final, making him joint top scorer with Romario.


And finally, the best for last….
