Ladies and gents,

a very slow day at the office has allowed me to compile a list of players who have been linked to Manchester United over the past two seasons.

I have absolutely no idea what this proves or what good it does, but I thought I would compile it anyway. I think somebody in the shout box inspired me. Maybe it was futbol.

In any case i think it's apparent that whenever a player wants a move, his agent or the player screams "Man Utd" want me.

Players who were than signed are indicated in red and players who I think are actually of Man Utd's standard are indicated in orange.

Because we were linked to them before we signed them.


In the same way, you do not see Anderson on this list, because he was not linked with us at all. A bolt out of the blue and he was a Man Utd player.

Yes, nani was heavily linked with United. It was Anderson who was snapped up without anybody having an inkling it was going to happen.

Bent....oh sweet baby Jesus..... thank you for not making some fans dream come true.

Ppl on other boards were screaming out for him, Vassell and Defoe....... shudder....

i hope veloso does come. he's a great defensive midfielder but he has eye for a killer pass too. but then, it would be over crowded in that department

Haha Nice team would love to have most of them to be honest!

The strikers list really brought back memories. I'm on another site quite often where every new rumour is hyped up beyond belief!

Especially Stevan Jovetic was hyped up based on one single YouTube video. Now this guy might turn out to be the next van Basten, but to proclaim that based on a single video clip is ridiculous

A slow day????:eek: What job do you do?
I cant believe you went and looked through ALL the players we were linked with.
I dont know whether to congratulate you or to hurl insults your way :D
Its a big old list......It just goes to show that you should never believe anything
you read in the papers........or in the transfer section ;)

I lead a team of of customer support reps at an IT company, so I'm infront of compuers all day ;)

It was quite easy actually. Manutd.com has a round-up of players they've been linked with every month, so I just went through that and complimented that with other players I remembered being linked too.

No need for insults i don;t have THAT much time. :D
