MasterTacticianMany will argue with the inclusion of van der Sar, but during his time at Old Trafford he holds the record for longest consecutive clean sheets. His achievements at the club came during the team's best spell in Europe, which means he shined more than Schmeichel in the Champions League. Schmeichel was brilliant, but VDS' save in Moscow wins him a place.

There is little argument for Gary Neville's inclusion. Steve Bruce gets in on the basis of his captaincy and being a leader in the first title. Nemanja Vidic edges out Rio Ferdinand by virtue of being a better defender and the fact that up until recently his injury problems were limited. He boasts 2 Premier League Player of the Year awards. No arguments for Irwin

The midfield is straightforward. Giggs, Scholes and Keane would always appear in this team while Ronaldo edges out Beckham because he was a significantly better player in his prime to Becks in his. Ronaldo's 42 goals in the 2008 season don't hurt either.

Wayne Rooney is the top scorer of the Ferguson era while Cantona is probably the most talented player of the era.
