If you had to choose an MVP for United since the premierships creation, who would it be?
Who was the most important figure(bar Sir Alex) in Uniteds domination of the league?

I have'nt quite decided on mine yet, but it'd have to be between Giggs, Scholes, Keano, or Schmeical.

What's your opinion?

Giggs is a good choice but he has had a lot of injuries and apart from his player of the year season a few years back and last season i don't know if he's carried United enough over the years. Still an absolute God.

I'm leaning more towards Keano as he has plenty of times dragged Us to the finsh line when desperatly needed.

Some obvious choiced :

-Schmeichel : Arguebly the best Keeper the club had. Having a great defence in front of him was a great help but the guy carried us at times. A fantastic Goalie, one of the best ever.

-Gary Neville : Mr.United. He's got everything you want in a United player. He's got the love for the club, the passion and the talent to back that up.

- Dennis Irwin : Mr.Reliable. He's got to be the most consitent player ever. A fantastic servant for the club and a fantastic player. One of my favourites.

-Roy Keane : He was the heart and soul of the club. A true captain. He wouldn't expect anything less than 100%. Not from himself nor his teammates.

Paul Scholes : The best attacking midfielder in the premier league history. IMO the best english player in the past two decades. He's the one that makes us tick. Always was , always will be.

-Ryan Giggs : The best left winger in the history of football. Playing for the United for 17 years says it all really. One of the true greats of the game.

-Ruud Van Nistelrooy : He score goals. Simple as. His terrific record at the club speaks for itself. Stunning.

-Eric Cantona : Magnifique! Words can't explain his influence on this club. Mine certainly can't.

There are some great players who I left out of that list. Bruce and Cole come to mind. But I just feel that the players I had in the list were vital to the team. More vital I guess.

Not my all time fav but Becks was important during his time at the club. He did 10 years or so and he's definitly up there with the rest.

Good question!

Cantona would be a good shout but he wasn't here for all that long really when compared to Scholes and Giggs.

I'd just pick Giggs as he has played the most games for us since the premiership started and has played at a constistant level. You know what you're going to get from Giggs almost everytime he plays which is a World Class performance!

IMO, it's Roy Keane. His winning mentality was infectious and spread through the team. He's one of those players that could grab a game (and his teammates!) by the scruff of the neck, give a rallying cry and lead his side to victory.

One of the best captains United have ever had.

Mine would be between:

Mark Hughes - His vital goals have helped us out of trouble many times in the past.

Eric Cantona - He was the missing jigsaw piece that helped us to our first league triumph in 26 years. He also carried the team all the way to the championship on many occasions.

Peter Schmeichel - Spent 9 glorious years between the sticks. His goalkeeping style made every defender focused and if you didn't do your defensive responsibilites right, he'd tell you about it in your ear.

David Beckham - Probably one of the best players to ever grace the game. A United supporter since he was a kid and achieved everything in the game. A world Icon and has a sexy wife.

posh is a stupid dog, persuading poor becks to go to L.A to play for that pub team-shame he couldnt have stayed at united or madrid.
