  2. 2. Moving on to the 1994/95 season, name the sub keeper!

    Les Sealey
    Kevin Pilkington
    Gary Walsh
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Gary Walsh

  3. 3. Which two players are missing from the double winning 1995/96 side?

    Topps/Merlin / Via toppsfootball.co.uk
    Pat McGibbon & Chris Casper
    Gary Neville and Chris Casper
    Phil Neville and Gary Neville
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Phil Neville and Gary Neville

    The inclusion of the rest of the Class of '92 should have been a dead giveaway.

  4. 4. We've removed the name of the player in the bottom right of the 1996/97 album, who is it?

    Topps/Merlin / Via toppsfootball.co.uk
    Jordi Cruyff
    Andrei Kanchelskis
    Jesper Blomqvist
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Jordi Cruyff

    It was Jordi Cruyff! Who sadly didn't quite live up to his father's reputation.

  5. 5. Moving forward to 1997/98, who is missing from our sticker album?

    Topps/Merlin / Via toppsfootball.co.uk
    Eric Cantona
    Andy Cole
    Dwight Yorke
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Andy Cole

    Andy Cole formed an incredible strike partnership with Dwight Yorke, but Yorke didn't join until the following season. And Eric Cantona had just retired :(

  6. 6. Which newly-signed defender is missing from the 1998/99 team?

    Topps/Merlin / Via toppsfootball.co.uk
    Jaap Stam
    Wes Brown
    Mikael Silvestre
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Jaap Stam

    As if Wes Brown would get in the sticker album over Jaap Stam (and Silvestre didn't join until the end of the season).

  7. 7. Okay, edging our way into the new millennium... Which goalkeeper is missing from the page?

    Topps/Merlin / Via toppsfootball.co.uk
    Peter Schmeichel
    Fabien Barthez
    Mark Bosnich
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Mark Bosnich

    Labelled a "terrible professional" by Alex Ferguson, but he's also the only player Fergie signed twice. So...

  9. 9. Tragically, three players are missing from our 2001/02 Man United team page, but who are they?

    Topps/Merlin / Via toppsfootball.co.uk
    Juan Sebastian Veron, Alan Smith, Jaap Stam
    Ruud van Nistelrooy, Jaap Stam, Luke Chadwick
    Luke Chadwick, Juan Sebastian Veron, Ruud van Nistelrooy
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Luke Chadwick, Juan Sebastian Veron, Ruud van Nistelrooy

    The mighty Luke Chadwick made it into the sticker album this season, and Jaap Stam had just left the club.

  10. 10. Kudos if you can name the player missing from this page (he played one game for United, scoring one goal... in his own net).

    Topps/Merlin / Via toppsfootball.co.uk
    Mark Lynch
    Daniel Nardiello
    Mike Appleton
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Mark Lynch

    It was Mark Lynch, who was apparently destined for big things but scored an own goal in his only appearance for United, which was unfortunately in a Champions League game.

  11. 11. Which striker is missing from this 2004/05 page?

    Topps/Merlin / Via toppsfootball.co.uk
    Henrik Larsson
    Alan Smith
    Sylvan Ebanks-Blake
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Alan Smith

    It was, of course, Alan Smith. That hair tho...

  12. 12. Which player is missing from this 2005/06 page?

    Topps/Merlin / Via toppsfootball.co.uk
    Kieran Richardson
    Michael Carrick
    Darron Gibson
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Kieran Richardson

    Kieran Richardson had graduated to first team action at United by this point, but Darron Gibson was so far down the pecking order he didn't register a league appearance. Michael Carrick hadn't joined the club yet.

  13. 13. We've removed a striker from the 2008/09 season, but who is it?

    Topps/Merlin / Via toppsfootball.co.uk
    Louis Saha
    Dimitar Berbatov
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Dimitar Berbatov

    It was, of course, everybody's favourite Bulgarian footballer. Also note how he was given a "97" rating for "Performance", which is just... just wow.
