It has long been argued that Manchester United is one of the best clubs in the game when it comes to balancing the age of their squad. This is primarily down to the management of Sir Alex Ferguson, who's foresight in throwing youngsters into the first-team (and ruthlessness in axing senior players) sets him apart from his peers.
Yet this season has reaped somewhat mixed results with regards to Manchester United's veteran contingent. Some over-thirty players continue to have a great influence on the team whereas others have seen their performances dramatically decline.
