ST: Eric Cantona An incredible footballer and a great guy, with such a massive presence about him.
ST: Ruud van Nistelrooy Ruud’s goalscoring at United was ridiculous – his record is second to none.
I initially had Dwight Yorke down to start, but Eric pipped him. Yorkie's unlucky to miss out, he was a top player. The impact he had in his first season in 1998/99 was frightening. I’ll probably get a dig off Nicky Butt too for leaving him out, so he’s on the bench. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to be there, and Paul Ince. I'd love to include Steve Bruce and Ronny Johnsen as defensive cover, but my wildcard is Cristiano Ronaldo: an awesome player but I can’t start him ahead of Becks or Giggsy.
