The loved list would feature 200 players, but the hate list would only have one: Paul Pogba.

I hated RVP when he was at Arsenal. He is now in my top 5 United players of all time.

- Cantona
- Vidic
- Scholes
- Berba
- Sheringham

My most loved ones are Scholesy, Carrick, Rooney, VDS, and Rafael Da Silva

I don't particularly like any of our current players but I wouldn't say I hate them, maybe only Lingard.

My least favourite current player would have to be DDG.

Not for his fairly long patches of poor form, which can happen to any player. Not even for letting his contract run down twice & then apparently becoming the best paid keeper in the world.

But his cowardly glued to the goal line style is inexcusable & he has not improved at that in all the years at United. I have a feeling he may have become even more passive in the last few seasons.

It makes the defenders look worse & he look better as it creates as a by-product more of the one thing he's good at, opportunities for reflex saves.

Why Rooney? Transfer request?

Scholes, Beckham and Van Nistelrooy were players I loved watching.

Both loved and hated Herrera for his antics.

Lingard I throughly despise

Even though I hate him as a pundit, Scholes remains my all-time favourite United player. My all-time least favourite is Di Maria and I don't see that changing anytime soon. I've never seen a player disrespect the shirt like he did, he acted like he'd been forced to sign for Spurs.

Hate is an extremely strong word and I dont think I would use that about any former United player.
I do have a very strong dislike for Ryan Giggs because of all the terrible things he has done off field.

The list of United players I have loved is far to long to write in a single post.

Ronnie, Rio and Scholes are probably three of my all time favourite players.

I'm not a weirdo so I don't actually hate any of these people I haven't met :lol: Some are quite clearly bad people though, i.e. Giggs and Greenwood

Hate is such a strong word. (Baring 2 players for obvious reasons) why do people care so much to the extent that you hate them?

The most likeable over the years, my memory serves me from about 1998:

Keane
Scholes
Beckham
Yorke
Cole
Solksjaer
RVN
Ronaldo
Evra
Vidic
Carrick
Rooney
VDS
De Gea
Rafael
O'Shea

Not much to like after those guys for me...the most likeable player post-Fergie has probably been Bruno until mid this season.

Hate is a strong word, but my worst feelings go towards:

- Di Maria
- Luke Shaw
- Pogba
- Lingard
- Rashford (the player, not the guy who used his platform for the right reasons)
- Maguire
- Heinze

Loved Andy Cole in school. In 98/99/00 he scored on average 25 goals a season winning everything including a treble and barely got an England sniff I loved him for being the ‘outsider’ in the league.

I’ve loved a lot of United players over the years, Ronaldo from 07-09 was probably the one that was truly world class, absolutely unplayable and couldn’t wait too see wait he did at the weekend if he wasn’t scoring worldies he was dribbling rings around defenders.

RvP in 2013 was special. Coming off losing the title in the last minute to being SAF’s last season he absolutely smashed it that season, it almost felt like he single handedly won us the title. To take Arsenal’s best player was such a crazy summer as well.

Don't know if I would hate any but I'm really not a fan of Lingard and never liked Ince.

I’m not ashamed to admit I don’t like Lindelof and it’s mainly because of his defenders on RedCafe, who do a better job of defending than he does.

I haven’t really hated many, but Tevez and Heinze come to mind for obvious reasons.

Daley Blind.

I think I had a bit of a man crush too when he was playing as a defender rocking that man bun.

Especially this season, I've grown so indifferent to the entire squad, I don't find myself rooting for anyone in particular, I wouldn't know who's name I'd want on a jersey.
As limited as I think Fellaini was, I could get behind him. Absolutely loved Herrera. Struggling to think of anyone from the current squad who leaves a positive impression.
Obviously besides Ronaldo and DeGea, but one is clearly over the hill and the other is a very limited keeper.

Did everyone hate on Heinze after he started flirting with Liverpool?

Because other than that period, I actually liked how he played as a player.

No-one will ever surpass Robbo for me, Ray Wilkins comes close. Always loved Gordon McQueen, Remi Moses, Steve Coppell, Gary Bailey, Paul McGrath, Jesper Olsen.

Newer generation - Becks, Cantona, Schmeichel.
