Anyone heard the classic story that Graham Taylor told Giggs to choose to play for Wales because 'you'll never get in my england team son'

Aparently it's in Giggs autobiography?

Do i not like graham fucking taylor

Bollocks. He played for wales becuase he wasn't eligible to play for england. Due to having no english parents or grand parents.

I personally think he should be applauded at every single ground he goes to. He is who all young players should want to be like.

My first ever United shirt had Giggs on the back, aww. He's matured beautifully too. Better looking than he ever was! Oh yeah, and er, he's a great footballer too, but let's focus on what's important here. ;)

He captained the England Schoolboys team. Do you not need English family to do that?

Not at schoolboy level no. Anything higher and you do.

At the time he was going to school in england, thats the only reason why he played for england schoolboys. There was never any doubt he was going to play for Wales.

Ryan Giggs was legible for England.

In 1980, when Giggs was six years old, his father switched rugby codes and signed for Swinton RLFC, forcing the whole family to move north to Manchester.
