Where would this Manchester United old boys XI finish in the Premier League?

The news that Ryan Shawcross has made his loan switch to Stoke City a
permanent one got me thinking about the number of Manchester United old boys
knocking around. This team would not do too badly in the Premier League, I
reckon. I tried to pick players that came through the ranks at Old Trafford as far
as possible. Does that Sunderland manager have a United connection or
something?

Tim Howard (Everton)

Paul McShane (Sunderland)
Ryan Shawcross (Stoke City)
Danny Higginbotham (Sunderland)
Danny Pugh (Stoke City)

Jonathan Greening (West Brom)
Liam Miller (Sunderland)
Nicky Butt (Newcastle)
Kieran Richardson (Sunderland)

David Healy (Fulham)
Giuseppe Rossi (Villarreal)

Where do you think the old boys team would finish in the league? Any additions
you would like to make to the squad?

Thats funny, i was just thinking about this yesterday......weird

You could add Smudger to the team as well.

i reckon this team would avoid the drop.....maybe 14/15th spot.

Not very high at all, most of the players are championship side players and they'd be lucky if they didn't get relegated.

Relegation (and people like Van Nistelrooy, Heinze and Smith didnt come through the youth system like Carly says in 1st post but Becks could be in there

ah got ya, didn bother readin the start of her post, either way most of our youth products over the last 5-10 years have been SHITE, if J O'Shea and Darren Fletcher are the most promising our acadamy is a farce compared to what it was!!!!!!!!
