Greatest United XI, Busby Babes and The Terminator


 

Goalkeepers and Defenders                                                 

 

So, another review is here, the good people at PR Genie have decided that more time and devotion shall be spent on my couch as I trawl through some obvious, some surprising,and some downright ridiculous candidates for the best Manchester United XI.

Gary Neville is one of United’s most established players, making his senior debut for the club in the UEFA Cup back in 1992 and has worked the right side of Old Trafford tirelessly for as long as most fans can remember.
