Andy Cole Signed For United 0n 12th January 1995 which came as a big shock to the footballing world with him having been a fan faviorite at newcastle since his move there he had been there top goalscorer one numourus awards for newcastle including the goldenboot award, so it was obvius why Alex Fergusen had opted for Andy!
The big question was could Cole life upto expectations?The answer to this being yes he could, scoring an average of 20 goals a season this was what a top club like united had needed, these goals not just flying in the league but other major competitions such as Europe, he was known world wide at this point.
Andy Cole's international career has never been a real strong one as he has never had a real chance to show what he is really cpable of, that is ofcourse until Sven Goran Erickson came in he has now made a number of apperances and also managed to get a goal for England is this a sign of a bright future ahead for Andy Cole?
Ever since Andy Cole signed for United he has been a big favirite with the fans with rumours recently circulating that he was leaving the club, this was where the fans love for Andy was shown with them refusing to let him go and he is now staying at united alough rumour has it he is set to return to newcastle or Fulham!
