So the question is why would you bring him back to Man Utd if he's already there?

That's what I thought originally but according to Wikipedia, it was the Aston Villa fans who gave him that nickname, not the Man Utd ones.

Err, okay, you do know Paul McGrath is an alcoholic right?

Really? All of my Man Utd supporting friends called him "The King" or "King Eric". They never referred to him as God.

I guess it's not going to turn out to be someone like Paul Parker or Clayton Blackmore then?

oh who to pick,
lauro or hansen at the back, barnes on the wing or maybe highwayor even whelan, souness or molby in the middle, king kenny or rush up front, so many to chose from.
Torres covers for rushie, alonso for molby, aggar may in time be a lauro/hansen so sort of down to 3
barnes/souness/king kenny.
we need flair on the wing, we need a true general in midfield and who wouldn't want king kenny up front to link with torres. flip of a coin in a lot of ways.heart goes for king kenny, but I think we need the wing flair more at the min so would go for digger, I think.

Always surprises me the way Clayton Blackmore's name gets mentioned in that context. He was actually a very good player. Paul Parker I was never a fan of.

Also relevant around the time of the Champions League final last year.
