Talking Points

Bill Foulkes started in every single United game in the seasons 1957–58, 1959–60, 1963–64 and 1964–65.

Will there ever be another United player who can beat Ryan Giggs’ appearances record?

Steve Bruce scored as many goals for United as Roy Keane, despite playing as a defender and playing in 70 fewer games.
