....and the one man who probably had more influence on the club, at a playing level, than any of them, didn't even get a place in the side. Cantona.

Kinkladzi

Bobby McDonald a solid player

You're seriously saying that those players deserve to be in a Manchester 11 ahead of some the guys who have played for United over the same period?

SWP ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo

If Ronaldo had treated the citeh fans and team the way he deserted your lot his name would be blackened .....the trouble with man u fans ,they hang on to past too much they dont let go, why keep singing about him and Cantina every other week , they should get behind the young lads of today ......thats why its so quiet at cold trafford these days , so yes i would give some of these city lads some credit ....but no probs not the top 11........

Not a City fan, but Ali Bernabia is the best player I have seen at the club.

Being an ITFC fan, I'd pick Alan Brazil for Utd

I know City fans have a somewhat distorted view of things... but you can't but serious about all that bollocks, surely?

I disagree with ALL of it. You would be hard pushed to find any United fans upset about the way Ronaldo left. He went to the one club he had said, for years, he would love to play for... and United got 80 million for him.

Tevez is just your classic example of a modern footballer. He will leave you as soon as he and his agent, can make a pay day out of it.

i know what your saying pal, he is a user basically , he is in it for the money only,its such a shame that some players feel the need to use clubs in this way , with no real heart in the clubs he plays for ..............i know one day soon he will walk away .........

i mentioned in my earlier post about a one man team to Leggy, i was pulling his leg, as i know how much it winds people up, im sick to death of these commentators harping on about city all of a sudden becoming a one man team, what a load of bollocks .......that tommy smyth does my head in when he commentates ..........

Tony Dinning had Kinkladze in his back pocket in the 3-1 win for Stockport at edgeley in 1997...... so deep in his back pocket I think he's still trying to get out.

I can't rate anyone highly if a journeyman league 1 player can mark you out of a game........


Goater, I'll admit was brilliant for the championship level and below, he scored loads against us....... be it at Rotherham, Bristol City or Man City..... but lets face it, Dixie Dean he isn't..........
