Now that you're gone.....

My favourite Manchester United player is……….. Well, I don’t know. The past 6 months has been a bit of a shocker.

My favourite Manchester United players list did read;

1. Gary Neville
2. Paul Scholes
3. Edwin Van Der Sar

Now I don’t know where to turn. While Gary Neville tries his hand at punditry, Paul Scholes starts to pass his skills on to the next generation of United players and Edwin Van Der Sar disappears to Holland for a few years rest, I am left with a big decision to make.

Who do I start to give all my Manchester United love to?

Do I go with Nemanja Vidic? He is easily loveable. Captain of United, loyal and our hard man. He once single handedly stopped a stadium riot in the middle of an International match. He is the type of guy that every man wants to be. He is also arguably the best centre back in the world. However, he picks up a fair few red cards, I’m not into the bad boy.

Or how about Nani? He had a great season last year. It was definitely the start of a bromance. Probably the most skilful player in the squad and one of the most exciting. He would be like the trophy girlfriend. However, playing time next season will be limited due to Valencia’s return to fitness and the signing of Young, so I may not see as much of him as I’d like.

What about Giggs? Manchester United legend and last of Fergie’s Golden Generation still at the club. Still doing it at the highest level and still a match winner. Also, an absolute legend with the ladies, he is the kind of guy the younger lads look up to. However, surely due to retire soon, if I pick Giggs, I will need to pick a new favourite soon.

Perhaps I should go with Rooney. On his day, by far our best player. He is one of the lads, and due to recent developments, could have some ‘Hollywood Hair’ next season to admire. He has all the ability required to become a Manchester United legend. However, after the ‘incident’ last season, there may be question marks over his commitment to the club and I may need to choose again next season.

Then there’s Javier Hernandez. He’s just so damn cute. He is officially the nicest person in the world. Its common knowledge that he doesn’t know any swear words and gives out shirts to supermarket workers who help him. He is also a goal machine who can score with any part of his body. However, to have his name and number printed on the back of my shirt may cost a bit and I never know how to spell Chitcharito……. Chictarito……… Chicharito without googling it.

So there you have it. What do you guys think? Who should be my new favourite Manchester United player? The first person to say Howard Webb gets numpty of the month award.

    I would’ve gone for Owen Hargreaves – nice, intelligent and hard working. Plus, he was going to be brilliant for us. Was. Enough said on him.

    Before the last couple of months, Giggs has been my favorite hands down. A seemingly quiet, genteel Welshman who gives United his all and has a penchant for the magical. Giggs – tearing us all apart since 1991. In all honesty, despite his well publicised off-field exploits, he’s still my favorite United player, probably ever.

    A one club man (We’re ignoring his youth development – everyone does stupid things when they’re young…) Giggs is United through and through. He’s unselfish, hard working and at times magical. No-one is perfect, as the newspapers have oft reported of late, but on and off the field he’s been a model professional as far as United is concerned.

    The fact that he’s still peforming at world class level should be enough – he made his debut on the 2nd March 1991 over 20 years ago. The Premier League’s most decorated player and rightly so – he was recently voted United’s greatest ever player. ’nuff said.

    Tony Valencia simply because of the way he came back last season . Solid , Dependable and not going to cause us any off field drama . Although he appears dour he is said to be one of the dressing room characters . Bit of a Dennis Irwin thing going on .

  3. Howard webb…lol….I tink vidic will b just fine.

    Sneijder .

  5. Red Typhoon says:

    Why dont you go for Patrice Evra..he talks everything nice about united..plays fast attacking football down the flanks…a good defender…

  6. Val says:

    Howard Webb lol But seriously, I’ve been thinking along the same lines recently. Vidic may get a lot of reds but most of them usually save our matches from ending at a worse note. So, captain fantastic it is for me.

  7. sijo, nigeria says:

    i think martin ‘ambramovich’ atkinson should fill dat void. We need 2 watch out for the guy cus he’s absolutely one of the cunning playaz around (am telling u, better than howard web). He wil do anything in his power to stop us frm winning dat 20th title. So watch out for his gloomy face when we lift the title at d end of d season.

    I think Darren Fletcher should be the next idol. He came through the ranks and is 100% committed to United. With Neville, Scholes, Brown and O’Shea all leaving there are few ‘home-grown’ players. Fletcher fits into that mould. I see him as the next Manchester United captain.

    Try Patrice Evra. Nice lad, GREAT left back. Bombs forward like a butterfly, tackles like a bee sting!
    Or maybe you would love to like Park Ji-Sung. The three lunged winger is definitely on my list. Non stop running and chips in a few goals too. Would love to see him finish his career with United

  10. Nice to see Kidd, Matrix, Chandler, Caron get a ring. Those are some of my favorite players in the NBA.
