Jobi - Greatest goal never scored?

Nice little piece on Planet Football about THAT run from Jobi McAnuff vs Liverpool in 2010. Still expecting to see the ball to go in off the post.

Watching United last night and my overwhelming thought was that they are really, really fu cked for the foreseeable future. Not one of their players would adequately replace any in the City, Liverpool or Spurs line ups. Still, they will always have the Class of '92 and 1999, which were so last centu...
