Roy Keane 105

Paul Scholes 57
David Beckham 57
Bobby Charlton 53
Peter Schmeichel 52
Ruud van Nistelrooy 42
Van the Gol!!

Ruud is the deadliest striker united have ever had. After the great George Best he is the only player from united to threaten all the best teams in Europe. He has scored about 150 goals and he definitely can be said as the greatest united player.

this man was the greatest player man u has ever had. this is because he could score goals at any angle. oooh van surely we miss you in utd shirt he's the best he can score from any place

he was the only player that can lead man united

This one should be the best player

Ruud why do you move to Real Madrid

Rio Ferdinand 18 amazing

highly under rated player. deserves more credit than he gets

i think that Rio Ferdinand is the best because he is a brilliant defender

he's a great defender and is incredible with the ball (:

rio ferdinand is the best footballer past tense and present time because he is utility player and he is a disciplined player and he is qualitative and the must expensive defender in england

Fabien Barthez 10 what is fabien barthez doing on this list??
Denis Law 9  
Andy Cole 9  
Paul Ince 6 Ince was a damn good midfield general!!
Ole Gunnar Solskjær 6 Always made an impact, without his injury, he'd still be scoring now!

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was and shall ever be the greatest ever player to wear the red of Man U.

The baby faced assassin, cut off too soon.

Bryan Robson 6 Bryan Robson had everything and was a much better player than Keane. Hard to believe he isn't on the list. (But he is) :-)
Duncan Edwards 5 Duncan Edwards, Billy Meredith, Roy Keane, Bryan Robson, Mark Hughes, Paul McGrath, Solskjaer, Sheringham, Vidic

Duncan Edwards should also be in the list. He died after the Munich crash so the world never got to see much of him. But Bobby Charlton has always described him as the best player he's ever played with. He's also been described as Roy Keane, Steven Gerrard and Paul Gascoigne rolled into one.

Carlos Tévez

4 Tevez is the best player in the world. forget about cristiano ronaldo or messi they are waaaaaaaaaaaayy too popular. they both fake all the time. tevez is awesome, he drives hard and always wins the ball, i go with tevez

Tevez I chose Tevez

tevez should be on it because he is my fav

Philip Neville 4 Philip Neville but no Staam, Bruce, Pallister, Buchan, Irwin, Vidic, Foulkes, Robson, Solskjaer, Hughes, Yorke, Edwards, Diego Forlan????
Tommy Taylor 4 Tommy Taylor in my opinion one of the best ever players to have lived

Tommy Taylor, .675 goals per game - RVN , .6333 goals per game - Denis Law, .553 goals per game

Johnny Carey 3 Johnny Carey, My Grandfather, amazing player, legend!!
Nemanja Vidic 3  
Jaap Stam 2  
Dwight Yorke 2  
Michael Carrick 2  
Gary Neville 2 Like Keano, he embodies the spirit of United

Have your say



Duncan Edwards and Tommy Taylor are not even on the list???? - Duncan may well have been the best footballer in the world let alone United!

They have been on the list for  a long while :-)

how can you have a list of utd greats and not have DENNIS IRWIN, STEVE BRUCE, GARY PALLISTER or PAUL PARKER on it. After all that is the back 4 that won us our 1st title in 26 years and not 1 of them is on there. But then saying that you got all the famous number 7's except BRYAN ROBSON. Now although he is not a bad player you have included PHIL NEVILLE who unlike the 5 i have mentioned is not a UTD LEGEND he will always just be GARY's brother that once played in a great team. -   But then that's just 1 persons opinion
