Reason to Root for Manchester United

We hate a good many players on Manchester United. Christian Ronaldo is certainly at the top of the list. But we have always had a soft spot for some of the hard workers on the Man U squad, and no one belongs more at the top of that list, over the course of the last 15 years, than Ryan Giggs. We Love Giggsy!

But there have always been bigger names in the center, haven't there? Cantona, Cole, Yorke, Nistelrooy, Rooney, and assorted other pussies (to be clear: we are not calling Cantona a pussy--please don't fly to America and kick us in the sternum). And even when one throws away the various starting strikers that have benefitted from Giggsy's unselfish style, you still end up super subs like Gonjkaer.

But what about the man who manned that left wing for at least 15 years now? The man, who alongside Maldini and maybe Figo who has defied age the most in European soccer?

Let us celebrate one of Giggsy's finest runs and finishes, and keep in mind, this is almost 10 years old, and that he played with Cantona, and will play May 21, 2008. WE LOVE GIGGSY.
