If you could create a match where two teams consisted only of Man Utd players past and present and who were all in their prime, what would it look like?

The teams would be managed by our two Knights, of course. :)

Mine would have the following:


Schmeichel

Parker - Bruce - Stam - Irwin

Beckham - Keane - Scholes - Sharpe

Law - v. Nistelrooy

vs

Rooney - Cantona

Giggs - Best - Robson - Kanchelskis

Evra - Vidic - Ferdinand - Neville

VDS​


In one team, you would have Becks supplying monster crosses to the most prolific, as well as lethal finishers this clubs has ever seen. In midfield, we'd have possibly the two best central midfielders this clubs has ever seen pulling the strings and Lee Sharpe on the left.

The second team would be able to counter lightning fast with with Rooney, as well as Giggs and Kanchelski on the wings. Also, Giggs had a great understanding with Canona and Gerge Best would do the rest.

Mark Bosnich , Dwight Yorke , Rafael , Fabio , Poborsky


Starting with Bosnich considering he wasnt with us long and that he was crap he shouldnt be there . Dwight Yorke was part of the treble team and apart from the first season he never performed to that high standard again. Rafael and Fabio may well make this kind of thread in 10 years if they both play to a high standard . And as for Karel Poborsky great player else where but he was a total disaster at United.

I don't remember anybody saying we should put the best players in.
If it were so then obviously some players wouldn't be there.

But seing as it's our "dream" weekend, I'll put in who I'd like to see,
not who I think would be more competitive.

Thankyou.

Oh, so I'm starting arguments by stating who I'd like to see in an All-Star

^Berbatov08 - you sure like Rafael don't ya?!

Noticed before on another thread that you probably think he;s going to be the best thing since...... man united ;)

Nice to see Charlton get into a team.

As a younger fan, I don't get to see too much stuff about Charlton. It's usually all about best from that period and a bit about Law, who's finishing was amazing.

Charlton would be handy though. He could bomb forward from midfield and score a rocket or two for sure.

From what I see of him Charlton was awesome, so graceful, and yet had a shot like a bullet.

No, not because of that, but because you consistenly make poor posts that incure other member's ire, because you make condescending posts and because you're a hypocrite.

i lost all respect for anybody that could not find a place in either side for bobby charlton .
haggs.... a lot of people here never saw Bobby Charlton and like I said, there is a lot of footage out there about Law and Best. i've seen exactly one 15minute tribute to Sir Bobby Charlton on MUTV.

I think leaving him out of this kind of fantasy squad is more real than putting him in just based on name alone, no?
