Players of the Decade

We’re nearing the end of the decade, the final fortnight of a glorious 10 years for the men in red.

The last Inside United of the noughties looked back at the Reds' best matches and strikes, and ManUtd.com is continuing the theme by revealing our own special countdown to take us into 2010.

After much office debate, we’ve settled on a list of the top 10 players to have graced the United team in the last decade, 2000-2009.

We took several factors into account in finalising our order, including the players’ longevity, overall contribution and natural talent.

Starting on Monday and running each day (except Christmas Day) until 31 December, we’ll be counting down the list from 10 to one, presenting an argument for the inclusion of each player, along with a video of what makes (or made) them great.

Of course, our choices are bound to stir the passions of Reds everywhere, and that’s what Talking Reds is for!

Throughout the countdown, you can put forward your own top 10s on our messageboard, and we’ll feature some of the most impassioned arguments on ManUtd.com.

Join us on Monday to celebrate some of the finest players ever to have played for United.
