No way would I agree with that list. id have Eric and Schmeichel but thats it.

I wrote this post ages ago so apologies if you have read it before......
These are the most important ones in my opinion:
Ill start with the Pally/Bruce combination at the back. These guys were the
foundation of the team in Fergies early successes. Big characters and big players
for us.

Denis Irwin was mr.reliable for united. played over 500 games over 12 years and
only cost £650,000. Bargain

Schmeichel is a united legend, arguably the greatest goalkeeper of all time. He
only cost half a million which is nothing.

Giggs was obviously a great signing and the way Fergie robbed him from under
Citys noses was genius.

In more recent times you cant look much further than Rooney and Ronaldo despite
costing a lot. They could and should become united legends and are very
important to our current team.

Vidic is also a great signing. We needed a tough cookie at the back
in the Bruce mould, which is exactly what he is.

And finally to his two best ever signings. Im finding it tough to seperate them but
I would give second place to Cantona, At 1.2 million he was possibly the greatest
bargain of the century. His name still reverberates around Old Trafford ten years
on. This guy was a genius. He could make something out of nothing and win you
a game in the blink of an eye.He is one of Uniteds best EVER players.

And to Fergies best ever signing. This accolade goes to Roy Keane, Uniteds most
successful captain ever, arguably uniteds best captain ever. The way he
determindly pushed his team forward and drove them on was the main reason
behind uniteds success. When he was out injured for long periods Uniteds form
slumped and that says it all. Perhaps not the flashiest or the most skilful player
ever but he is up there with Best and Charlton and Man Uniteds best EVER player.

fair enough cantona but keane was a record fee at the time we got ronny johnson for 250 000 and he won about 4 league titles 1 fa cup a european cup
could play in midfield and defence and would score loads of headers off corners so he justifs being in there sir jazz of nows alot
You make some good points on Ronny but I would bet any money that you
are the ONLY United fan on earth (except maybe Ronny's ma) that would have
Johnson in ahead of Keane and Cantona.
Price tags arent the be all and end all. The 3.75 million for Keane is a pittance
for all he has achieved for the club.

I dont consider cantona and keane as unknown small transfer signings so they dont count yes if you were to ask me our most influential signings they would be in the top five but not this list jazz:cool:
but the thread topic was 'Top 5 bargain buys'.....
1 million for Cantona was bargain of the century and even though Keane's
fee was a record at the time it is STILL a bargain of huge proportions.
He was our most successful captain ever and the main reason we won so
much on the pitch. If THATS not a bargain then I dont know what is.
