    well done, great reads (remember the last one too).

    Am I blind... Can't see Schmeicel?

    And Robson 13th... :(:nono:. Almost as bad as Best position.

    Great top two though. :)

    Looking forward to the 2022 thread.

    Hmmm. The Great Dane should be there. Might be another that I need to add in somewhere. The spreadsheet I used got convoluted and if I spelled it wrong...

    I’ll check and add him in sneakily tonight.

    The man crush and love I had for RVP in 2013 is one that cant be matched for a Man United player besides when Ronaldo was their.

    But RVP in 2013 and him being the catalyst for the title was just:drool::drool:

    I know he played for both Manchester clubs at youth level but has it ever been confirmed that he is in fact Ashley Grimes jnr ?

    Yeah, his old fella came to a few games at Holker St I believe and if you ever see a pic you would know for certain :lol:. Currently blagging it at Edinburgh City.

    Sorry just checked back. Knew I had seen him somewhere. He's on page 6, just missed him in the list.

    Edit: So that is that. No more mistakes. 103 names on the list. (Should have been 104, Pearson will be sorted next time!)

    Big questions for next time:

    1) After a poor showing this time, can the Holy Trinity be pushed back into the top ten?
    2) If Herrera leaves, will he make the top fifty next time?
    3) Are we expecting Martial/Rashford to shoot up the list?
    4) When we reflect back on players like Valencia will they rise?
    5) Will Scholes ever be beaten?

    Great thread! Predictions for the answers to your questions
    1. No,because the people who've seen them are going to be fewer next time. Unless there is some class documentary or something made, I'd expect them to stay where they are
    2. Depends on who replaces him in the side. If he is replaced by a better player, he'll drop out, else we'll start liking him even more
    3. Rashy- yes. Martial- depends on our success.
    4. Will remain in around the same position I feel as Dalot seems exciting
    5. Eventually yes, although from among the players in our side- only Rashford seems capable enough of doing that

    Thought it was too obvious, tried years ago but never been able to find a close up image of Grimes jnr before this:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36499072

    I'd even tried facebook but there are literally 100's of Ashley Grimes, and 98% of them were American, and female :lol:

    Memories from 2015/16

    That was the only goal he scored for Barrow, absolute dog shite he was.

    Back on topic
    Hoping Rashford can improve and therefore move up a few places but it will hard shifting the top 2 imo. Who knows the next Cantona may well be bought in the summer and 1 or 2 of current crop of youth will make a name for themselves before the next poll.

    Only if RedCafe go on a recruitment drive to get more old tarts like myself on board, sadly no

    Great thread by the way, thanks, first port of call every time it was updated.

    Finally caught up with this. Called it early that scholes would win.

    Great thread as always dude, enjoyed it 3 years ago and enjoyed it again.

    The united fanbase on here does wind me up in these threads though!

    Just an irrelevant former sub now. Who cares, right?

    Ha ha.

    Shouldn't this be moved to the classic threads bit or something?

    Do the same format for best players, reckon it shouldnt have to much players in that....maybe expend to top 15 so you dont get the same players from everyone.
