    You add Keane's bottle carrier in the mix but you leave Giggs out?

    Oh shit yes giggsy, but you get my drift the class of 92 lads , so while it was a MAJOR oversight not typing giggs , you know what I meant, and while butt was never in keonos class he was one of that group who came through and became the best team in the world 99/00, he played his part did butty.

    I think he was by far the weakest of the bunch. If we do a class of 92 statue than he must come behind Giggs, Scholes, Gaz, Beckham and Phil (in that precedence). If we're doing a treble statue than he should be behind Keane, Schmeichel, Stam, the Calypso boys, Ole, Teddy, Giggs, Beckham and alot of other players.

    A statue of the entire final line up would be great to see. Perhaps have it at ground level and life size, so fans can walk around it.

    The Busby Babes that lost their lives in Munich should have a collective statue.

    I'd vote for the last Busby Babes team lineup, but there's already the clock & the tunnel. Maybe a trinity of people who helped build United: Louis Rocca, Jimmy Murphy, Joe Armstrong? I think this would not only commemorate people, but also serve to remember them & their immense contributions, which are gradually fading away, sadly. Except perhaps Murphy who has received well-earned attention in recent years.

    I’m sure there are screen printers out there who can do just that. Might not be cheap, but at least it’ll be rendered properly.

    You'd spend a lot of time running of local kids using it to practice free kicks.

    Yep. All time scorer, won a lot with us. Give him the send off he deserves. Not his fault we didn’t sell him when Chelsea came sniffing for him.

    Ashley Young if he can score his now famous trademark brace (a stunning freekick and a low volley to the left corner of the post) to thrash City on Sunday. :)

    If he does that, he can have two statues at Old Trafford.

    As much as I'm not a fan of the way Ronaldo went about leaving, he will end his career as top 5 player of all time. They even build statues of Maradona and Pele in places they really have no connection to.. so in that sense he would be as worthy as anyone due to his connection to the club.

    Probably not yet though, it is too soon.. maybe 30/40 years when we look back at that era as a Golden Age.

    As individuals, you can only really argue Giggs for his longevity, Rooney for his goals record, or Cantona for his je ne sais quoi and impact on our club. Ronaldo didn't do enough in his years here to warrant a statue.

    I'd choose the class of '92 by a long margin. Sure, Butt and the Nevs don't deserve one individually, but the statue is about more than the individuals, it represents our team spirit, our commitment to youth, and the era of Ferguson, things which our club still benefit from to this day.

    Couldnt agree more, he inspired a whole football generation like me who was born 87. He embodies the united way and spirit which is full of fierce passion and attacking intent and help fergie breed "the united way" of fight to the death.

    statues are meant to remind you of iconic moments. Its not like ray wilson was GOAT but the moment he and martin peters held Bobby Moore aloft with the WC was an iconic moment

    What nonsense! Statues aren’t ‘meant’ to remind you of iconic moments, there are all sorts of reasons for commissioning a statue. Honouring a period of history is just as valid a reason as honouring a moment.
