NO, I AM NOT A PUNDIT, BUT JUST A MAN UNITED FREAK WHO WANTS TO THANK ALL THE GREATS WHO MADE MY CHILDHOOD EVER SO NOSTALGIC..!!!
So, here I am ready for any possible arguments and giving ya all the reasons in the world for the dream 11 Man United (last decade) which I chose in the PART1 of this 'dream' article..heh
Dream 11 Manchester United (last decade)
**(only possible argument)
Manager-Sir Alex Fergusson
"When I was young...When I had all the time in the world...I used to wonder if I could ever run like Giggs and cross like Beckham...Shoot like Scholes and tackle like Keane"
(Every player's ability has been cosidered when at the peak of their career)
Arguably the best goal keeper world has ever seen, undoubtedly the best Man United ever had...!!!
Plays when fit...Does the job to perfection...Tackles hard, crosses well..Just what the manager asked for...A regular feature in the national side as well..Don't remember many games in the last decade without Garry on the right of defence...
Rock solid..Hard core tackles..Leading the defense line and a surety of success at the back..Made his name in the 2002 world cup and ever since, has been the best defender England has seen in a long long time...
No, prisoners taken...!!!...Dogged defending...The one man wall...Mr.Defence...A key reason for the unprecedented success of 1999
The most popular footbal or more of a sports person ever...The glamour boy of world football...Supposedly over-rated, but TRUST ME; one of the finest players when at his peak and ending uptwo times as a runner up to the world footballer of the year...Dead ball specialist and a tremendous ability to pin point crosses...Still remember those fantastic free-kicks and those accurate crosses to Dwight Yorke and then later on to Ruud Van.....
Wow...still can't forget those great European nights when David Beckham reigned supreme
Always a 200%..Tremendous passion and aggression...Making every player in the team to give his best...The rock in the high flowing counter attacking midfield of the dream team...One of the best captains we have ever seen and one of the best defensive midfielder of the 90's
One of the most complete footballer of his era...Shooting the ball from any where outside the box and blasting past the goalie straight into the goal...World class header of the ball...Arriving late in the box and scoring the most cruicial goals..Tackling being the only drawback but his ball control is just magical..
A true legend in every sense of the 'over-used' word...Dribbling past the best in Europe and best in the world...The best on the left wing...After all, the guy who gave us the goal of the century...Dedicating all his Welsh talent to the English side...Now an old horse but still a heroe..
Brought into the side as a young teenage prodigy...and now proving his boss right as being worth the most costliest teenager at his time (his record only broken by Wayne Rooney)..Currently the best footballer in the world...Hats off to the guy who single handedly won united the third European title...
The only possible arguable inclusion in the dream 11..Yes, one of the greatest young talents England has ever seen since the days of YOUNG Michael Owen...!!(hehehee....Real Madrid as always wasted another would be great..!!!) But yet to prove his ability for his club...It can be argued that Teddy Sheringam, Andy Cole or the "Super-Sub" Ole Gunnay Solskjaer can be better fitted into the dream 11...but I still prefer to stick with the promise of young Rooney and what he brings to the club in terms of desire and passion...
A perfect target man for any team..Phenomenol goal scoring rate...especially in Europe..almost a goal every game and breaking many such records as that of the great United legend Denis Law..A one man goal scoring machine...Showed the club glimpses of Cantonna, Cole, Solskjaer,Sheringam all in the short period of time he stayed at the club...
And yes, it would be criminal not to mention the Super-Sub Ole Gunnar Solskjaer waiting on the bench to come late into the match and score the all important and dramatic late goals...He delivered when ever the situation asked him to..really I still cherish those childhood days watching the cup ties and the cruicial games turn on its head in the dying seconds of the game..and it all happened time and again when ever the red devils needed it..thanx to the "baby-faced"..Solskjaer......
Manager-Sir Alex Fergusson:-
No, arguments needed........!!!!!!
The man who assisted Fergie to the famous treble in 1999....the man who helped Middlesborough to regain it's status in the premier league...An ex-England manager...doesn't deserve to be a number 2 but only to the great Sir Alex..!!!
"When I was young...When I had all the time in the world...I wondered if I could ever run like Giggs and cross like Beckham....Shoot like Scholes and tackle like Keane".......And in the end celebrate like a RED DEVIL...!!!!!!!
