Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole

During the transfer window in 1996, the Red Devils were chasing Alan Shearer and could not get him so they turned to a blonde haired paper boy from Norway. That paper boy was Ole Gunnar Solskjær. Ole would turn out to be one of the best signings that Sir Alex made.

During that magical night in Barcelona in 1999, Ole came on as sub and capped off United dramatic comeback in the Champions League Final, capping off the Treble. During his time at United he won six league titles, two FA Cups, a League Cub, four Community Shields, and of course one Big Eared Trophy.

Earlier this week, Ole said goodbye to the pitch at the Theatre of Dreams. Ole may be gone but he will never be forgotten. Not bad for a second choice, who won more trophies then the first choice.
