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.

Obertans #1 fan.
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.
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:

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.

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!

Haha you and your white text can do one! It'll be a good few years before I fancy doing this again!
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.
