Default Best, Bobby and the Busby Babes: Other legends who have defined Manchester United

Best, Bobby and the Busby Babes: Other legends who have defined Manchester United
Independent: 19 November 2005

* GEORGE BEST
The Northern Irishman eventually became as famous for his off-field problems as his performances on the pitch but he remains the most talented player in the club's history.

* SIR BOBBY CHARLTON
Strong, dignified and also supremely talented, Charlton embodied much of what Manchester United are all about.

* DENIS LAW
Scottish striker Law scored 171 goals in 305 League games in the '60s and '70s with an amazing arsenal of long-range strikes, overhead kicks, headers and tap-ins.

* ERIC CANTONA
The most popular Manchester United player of the 1990s at Old Trafford, Cantona had a short fuse which he combined perfectly with sublime flair to become a hero for the Red Devils.

* PETER SCHMEICHEL
A monstrous goalkeeper, "The Great Dane" was another key component of United's treble-winning side of 1999. Never afraid to bark orders.

* BRYAN ROBSON
Sir Alex Ferguson's "Captain Marvel" when they took the Premiership by storm before the Millennium. Robson's perceived lack of charisma does not detract from his legendary status.

* NOBBY STILES
Famous for his "jig" after England won the World Cup at Wembley in 1966, Stiles was a midfielder famous for his never-say-die attitude and crunching tackles.

* ROGER BYRNE
The captain of the famous Busby Babes side which inspired such adoration in the 1950s, Byrnes was a likeable, charismatic defender, winning three League titles before his death in the Munich air disaster.

* MARK HUGHES
Another fiery live wire of the same mould as Cantona and Keane, Hughes was hugely popular at Old Trafford, teaming up with Ferguson twice to great effect.

* DUNCAN EDWARDS
Many believe Edwards would have been the greatest player in United's history and even better than Bobby Moore had his career not been cut tragically short when he was killed in the Munich air disaster, aged just 21.
