Commanding: Cantona as Alain Delambre in Inhuman Resources

With due respect to George Best, Bobby Charlton, Roy Keane, David Beckham, Peter Schmeichel and Cristiano Ronaldo, my favourite Manchester United footballer was always Eric Cantona.

That bad-boy swagger, that haughty dominance of the midfield, those thrilling sidesteps and astonishing goals, even those gnomic utterances about seagulls and trawlers and the like - what was there not to love about Cantona in his 1990s prime?
