United All-Time XI

Manchester United has a long and rich history of being a great club both on and off the pitch. United remains the Worlds biggest and most important club even though the team has been hit by some major road blocks since the departure of Sir Alex, but lets save that for another time. Over the years Manchester United has had many world class players. So i was thinking why not make my first post not be a gloomy post about the current state of the club. So I decided to go ahead and put together my United All-Time starting XI.

When I first thought about putting together an All-Time XI, I wasn’t sure what formation would be good to really get the best possible eleven to represent Manchester United. I ended up choosing to use a 4-3-3. The reason I chose to use the 4-3-3 is because I didn’t want to leave out any players that had to be included. Well without further lets dive right in to my United All-Time XI.

Keeper

Edwin Van Der Sar

CENTER BACK PAIRING

Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand

FULLBACKS

Gary Neville and Patrice Evra

CENTRAL MIDFIELD PAIRING

Paul Scholes and Roy Keane

ATTACKING MIDFIELD

Sir Bobby Charlton

WINGERS

Ryan Giggs and George Best

STRIKER

Wayne Rooney

BENCH

Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Mark Hughes, Steve Bruce, Bryan Robson, Duncan Edwards

Alright this got really tough once I got to the midfield. United is a club with not just a great history but the number of Legends of the game to have played for the club makes this so much harder. Lets hope this leads to a discussion amongst fans.
