Jabba's Comments

Irwin made his debut for Leeds at the age of 18 having come through the youth and reserve teams. Eddie Gray developed the young right back into a solid player over the next 2 years, but under Billy Bremner he was released and joined Oldham. At Oldham he really began to improve, and after 4 years there he was snapped up by Manchester United. The rest, as they say, is history: he's been an almost constant presence in the all-conquering Man U side of the 90s and has picked up countless medals and established a European appearance record of 70 games for the Old Trafford club. If only he'd stayed....

At the age of 36 and with younger and fitter players at the club, there wasn't much chance of him playing much more for Man U, so he's taken his experience to Wolves for a final season or two to see if his experience at the back will be enough to finally take the Molineux side back into the top flight.
