    Forget the draw and VVD, here’s Cantona’s speech in full:

    “As flies to wanton boys we are for the gods, they kill us for their sport.

    “Soon the science will not only be able to slow down the ageing of the cells, soon the science will fix the cells to the state and so we will become eternal.

    “Only accidents, crimes, wars, will still kill us but unfortunately, crimes, wars, will multiply.

    “I love football. Thank you.”,

    Pretentious sod, its not even that smart I mean, who wants to live forever? Freddie mercury couldnt figure it out so damned if I know, but I sure dont, the thought of having to listen to nonsense like this for eternity?

    I would like to have a body that didnt age . i think everyone would. Thats not the same thing as living forever but ya.. as for what Cantona has to say, TBH I long stopped listening to what footballers have to say. This isn’t their strong point, as they are usually not the smartest people. Their experiences are too removed from a normal persons .

    Smack in the face with a kipper!!! Another “hear, hear”!!! People are going to start talking about us!!

    All a bit boring really, no real interesting groups. Hopefully they’ll be some “upsets” in the first couple of rounds, no dead rubbers…

    Cantona talks absolute rubbish but give me a character like him any day of the week over the boring lot we have today who have staff managing their social media accounts. Love the fact he’s in jeans and a casual shirt at such a posh event. Just doesn’t give a f*** 😁

    Yeah pretty favourable draws all around for the PL clubs. Can’t see any not topping their group.

    I still reckon without Cantona, UnYooUtd wouldn’t quite be where they are today. He was the catalyst for all that was good, he tipped them over that edge into “mega-commercial trophy winning cockwombles” that they are (or at least were until Fergie retired!). When you considered what they paid for him, he is still THE signing of the Premiership era for me… nobody comes close for VFM vs impact/success. I know they still bang on about the Class of 92, but he was Headmaster!!

    never liked him as a person, great respect as a player he has the X factor that the likes of Ibrhimovic has, the arrogance sometimes required to be at that level and have total belioef in yourself

    also warmed to him in his later post football years and seems a decent and funny fella weilling to take the piss out of himself…

    He did have his moments of madness, no doubt about that. To me, he just came across as somebody who just wanted to play football and hated the political nonsense that went with it. Still my favorite player of the premiership era who never wore a Spud shirt!

    Cantona was a wonderful wonderful player who I feel privileged to have seen in the flesh on numerous occasions.

    Cantona plus the Class of 92 plus SAF set United up for unprecedented success.

    He’s obviously slightly eccentric but he’s a character. If he was playing for United now they would have probably been in the draw yesterday.

    The big question though is where did Cantona park his fruit and veg barrow last night?😊
