    It was a Cup game against Man U.

    We all thought he was Parker

    Walking in a Spector wonderland


    I didn’t see his time at Man U but at West Ham after his hip injury he was an ok/good right back and a terrible left back.

    We'll miss you Specs. Can never forget that cross for Dempsey goal against Brazil in the Confederations Cup (2009).

    I do hope his mom stays active and transfers to another player.

    attacking mid against Sunderland and Manchester United in the cup games. He was sincerely fun to watch those games when he played up. Watching the Hammer reactions of "wHy DiD wE AlWaYs StArT HiM aT fUlLbAcK?!" were hilarious.

    Steffen had a fantastic game today, but might need help keeping his spot;)

    As I recall he was quite good in the Confederations Cup, playing in a DM/CM type role. As mentioned he had a great assist to Dempsey against Brazil.

    I actually remember watching him play for Manchester United. I got all jazzed when he was about to come on. Then watching him play, I thought, "Hmm...what's the big deal?"

    In the end, Mr. Spector was no big deal.

    Going from Orlando to ATL...... uh-oh! That's going to ruffle some feathers. And he thought Birmingham City - Aston Villa was a big derby :)

    The fact he actually played for them is quite a surprise for me. But he had a German passport and was mostly for the reserves if I'm not mistaken. Still, it's a feather in his cap.

    He was a reasonably well regarded ManU prospect. No Jovan Kirovski or Gio Rossi, but still had a bit of heat.

    He was regarded as a serious prospect at Man U - not in, say, a Nicky Butt way, but definitely as a someone who had potential as a depth player who would ultimately be sold on. He wasn't the same after injury, which is why he was let go
