1. Peter Schmeichel
2. Gary Neville
3. Patrice Evra
4. Rio Ferdinand
5. Jaap Stam
6. Roy Keane
7. Cristiano Ronaldo
8. Paul Scholes
9. Rudd Van Nistelrooy
10. Eric Cantona
11. Ryan Giggs


Top squad. Only person missing is Bryan Robson, but I am sure if I can to drop Keane/Scholes. I have seen some saying that Irwin benches Evra, for me that is a joke. Evra is one of the top leftback in the world for many years, and earns the spot.


Irwin was a better servant for Utd than Evra. He could play either RB or LB, was adept at setpieces be it freekicks or penalties. Stopped playing for Utd at age 36 after 12 years of loyal service. Attacking wise - the gap was so wide, Evra scored 7 goals in 326 appearances. Irwin scored 33 goals in 529 appearances.

No room for Djemba-Djemba, Kleberson and Massimo Taibi? Fergie was human after all.

Please do not insult Stam...you cannot compare Vidic with Stam. Vidic is so limited you only need to flash your teeth at him, he would quickly turn and pass the ball back to the keeper. Geez memory na wicked thing. YOu cannot compare Stam and Vidic abeg. Vidic is a good defender a massively good defender. But Jaap was a defender + more. By the way I am a defender i played like Vidic in my own time, but i wish i could play like Stam. Look at Rio, then fuse Vidic into Rio , you have a complete image of Jaap Stam.

Robson was a warrior. Man Utd were basically a one man team with him. He was the greatest midfield general of his generation. The present generation were unfortunate not to see him play. The "Captain Marvel" nickname was made for him. I think he was a better player than even Roy Keane. The fact that he was Keane's hero, and that Keane was in awe of him when he moved to Man Utd says a lot.

Robson was unfortunately to play for Man Utd before their glory years. His commitment and courage deserved a truck load of trophies to match Ryan Giggs.

Evra is beyond overrated, but for his pace, he's a French Taye Taiwo, with age should come wisdom, he is fast showing himself to have none. Positioning all over the place, he looks ready to join Arsenal.

Those forgetting Paul 'Whiskey and Wine' McGrath are only confirming their newness to the game. Arguably one of the defensive greats of Premiership football. Drunk he was better than most, sober, he was superb. Can be found outside Salford train station with a brown paper bag concealing, albeit poorly, a can of Special Brew. #Sad.

I can see your point, but Evra for me is another underrated player. My change in the squad would be to put Bryan Robson in place of Keane or Scholes.

Their respective records for Man Utd:

Bryan Robson - 345 games (74 goals)
Roy Keane - 326 (33 goals)

I actually struggle to think of a part of the game where Keane was a better player than Robson. Certainly not goalscoring, tackling, heading, discipline (Keane got far more red cards), or as an inspirational figure.

Also, Keane had the luxury of playing in one of the greatest midfield quartets of all time with Giggs, Scholes and Beckham. Also did not hurt having Ronaldo, Schmeichel, Rooney, Van Nistelrooy, Ince, Stam, Irwin etc as team mates. Robson's record is all the more remarkable when you consider that he played in a very average Man Utd team with players like Remi Moses, Jesper Olsen, Graeme Hogg, Terry Gibson etc...yet he still managed to drag them to 3 FA Cup victories (he was inspirational in each FA Cup campaign and final).

Dennis Irwin for Patrice Evra; and Bryan Robson for Paul Scholes and your team would be on point. Always hard to put these type of teams together though, without leaving a deserving player out.

Cheers.
