Law - United highest ever goalscorer behind Charlton.
Cantona - such a special player. How can you not chose him?!

first 2 on the list for me.
Law was part of the Holy Trinity and scored a ridiculous amount of goals for United.
Still holds the record for most in a season in 1964. He got 46 if Im not mistaken.

Cantona also gets my vote. One of the most inspirational players to ever play at OT.
His songs still gets sung and he is one of our biggest legends. My 2nd favourite player EVER.

Had to be Law and Cantona for me.

The only two men nicknamed the King of Old Trafford.

Cantona, was just beyond words, and law, pretty much the perfect goal scorer. I think they would have made an unbelievable partnership.

Van Nistelrooy was unclucky to miss out, as was the Cole-Yorke partnership. Solskjaer wwas also considered for his devotion to the club, and the European Cup Final goal among other qualities.

You shouldn't even be close to picking Rooney lol. He's not done half the things some of these legends have.

but he has scored more goals than 3 of them :D
but you are essentially right though. rooney is still young, but Id half expect him to go down as one of the greats if he spends his career at OT relatively injury free.

Cantona and Viollet

Havent seen Viollet playing live obviously, but from archival videos, his class was really evident. Great goal machine, and what tremendous pace

And Cantona well.... for obvious reasons :thumbsup:

My first choice was Denis Law. I don't think I really need to explain why.

My second choice is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. I just couldn't bring myself to leave him out.

True, but some of the names are only in the poll for an honourable mention, nobody will vote for them :p

I would hope that that's the case with Rooney. Quality player but nowhere near some of the others....yet.

I would have easily done that if i thought he`s done a better job. But the fact that the majority of them are legends, and Rooney has still a long way to go considering he`s only 24 .. He won`t be get close to that for now, no.

I REALLY REALLY want to pick Ole, but i just can't decide because it means i'll have to leave out two of these three i also think should be up there (RVN, Law, Cantona).

Hmm I'll come back to this.
