The Top 50 United Legends Of All Time

8 07 2009

The Times Online recently named who it consider to have been the top 50 Manchester United players of all time and I’m interested in what you people think.

Bobby Charlton3Was he REALLY the Greatest of the Greats?

I personaly disagree with many of the rankings and I have no doubt that many other people will have vastly different opinions, so let’s have your thoughts  and let us know who at least your top 5 should be.

Rather than nominating my top five legends I would prefer to name who I consider to have been the most influential players in the club’s history.

1 – Eric Cantona

2 – Billy Meredith

3 – George Best

4 – Jack Rowley

5 – Roy Keane

This is what The Times considers to be The Top 50.

1 Bobby Charlton

2 George Best

3 Duncan Edwards – 4 Eric Cantona – 5 Bryan Robson

6 Roy Keane – 7 Ryan Giggs – 8 Denis Law

9 Roger Byrnes – 10 Peter Schmeichel – 11 Bill Foulkes

12 Johnny Carey – 13 Paul Scholes – 14 Nobby Stiles

15 Paddy Crerand – 16 Mark Hughes – 17 Gary Neville

18 Shay Brennan – 19 Harry Gregg – 20 Wayne Rooney

21 Billy Whelan – 22 Norman Whiteside – 23 David Beckham

24 Billy Meredith – 25 Tommy Taylor – 26 Denis Viollet

27 Ruud van Nistelrooy – 28 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – 29 Brian Kidd

30 Jack Rowley – 31 Paul McGrath – 32 Rio Ferdinand

33 Steve Bruce – 34 Eddie Coleman – 35 Teddy Sheringham

36 Alex Stepney – 37 Andy Cole – 38 Martin Buchan

39 Stan Pearson – 40 Gary Pallister – 41 Noel Cantwell

42 Jaap Stam – 43 David Herd – 44 Joe Spence

45 Denis Irwin –  46 Dwight Yorke –  47 Tony Dunne

48 Brian McClair –  49 Mark Robins –  50 Cristiano Ronaldo

What a listing!  How can these players ever be forgotten! The numbers may change but the names must surely remain.
