although Jim has missed an obvious one for left back Fergie played Sharpe at left back when he first came in to the team

He also had a few games there in his last season and a bit. Scored a nice goal v QPR in the cup in 94-95 from there.

My favourite player growing up. Always wear the 5 shirt when playing.


has he, ill try and get it.

i know sharpey started at left back but he was a winger and a damn good one, i thought he was better than giggs too for a while but what the fuck would i know.

He was on fire the start of 93-94, Giggs was forced on to the right wing, Sharpe was scoring for fun. He must have got injured because Kanchelskis came back into the team i the second half of the season.

Who did we miss at left back?

Ian Ure at centre half also.. Nobby Stiles.

I suppose you'd find a place for George Best somewhere too...

May was a flop at right back, where he was selected, but a very good centre half.

Fair point re Buttner. Perhaps fabio could go in there. Better than Rafael don't you know!

As for Jordi, agree with Howard. Similar category/impact to Blomqvist? Was Poborsky a flop?
