Who’s in the best Manchester United XI you’ve ever seen live?

This week, in order to pad out a podcast robbed of a match to talk about due to the tyranny of international football, the RedMancunian podcast team debated the best United XI they have ever seen play in the flesh. Whilst some of the picks were straight forward (left wing anyone?) others prompted great debate.. Schmeichel or van der Sar? Irwin or Evra? Could we include Captain Marvel Bryan Robson in midfield, and which Dutchman made the cut up front?

You can hear our final team and the justification for it here, but we want your views too. Leave us a comment with the best Manchester United XI in a 4-4-2 formation that you’ve seen play live and your reasons for picking that team and we’ll collate the votes before next weeks podcast.

The RedMancunian.com podcast is released at 10am every Friday (including international breaks..) and can be found on the site, via iTunes and on YouTube.

    No ‘defensive’ midfielder, who cares, the opposition would never get the ball! ( and Nobby would scare today’s players to death). Just too young to see ‘the Babes’.

  8. One of the best teams of all time would be including Duncan Edwards in a DM role in a 1/4/1/3/1/1 fluid formation. Bobby Charlton once said of DE, ‘You could not get near him’; he was awesome.

    Schmeichel
    Neville Stam Ferdinand Irwin
    Edwards
    Ronaldo Charlton Best
    Cantana
    Law
