The other day I was thinking about defenders and in particular Rio Ferdinand when I realized that I didn't know whether he had a middle name or not.

And then ..... I realized that I hardly knew any middle names of Manchester United players, which is a shame really. So here are the full names of Manchester United listed by their squad numbers.

I'm missing a few middle names, so if you happen to know them, please share the info.
