Who will be the Coolest at Old Trafford?

Who are the coolest Manchester United players to have pulled on the famous red shirt in the Premier League era?

To come to some sort of an objective decision on this, we need first to decide on a definition of "cool" which could be applied to the candidates in question.

It could be argued that "cool" means different things to different people, and you, the reader, may have different criteria than I.

For me, a "cool" footballer is someone I would have pretended to be in the playground in my youth.

It is someone who is charismatic, probably good looking, naturally talented in his chosen area of expertise and, perhaps most importantly, exercises his skills with the minimum of fuss and effort.

"Casually brilliant" could be one way of describing them.

He knows how to celebrate a goal with classy rather than frenetic gestures and give the impression that his ability is a naturally evolved phenomenon inherited at birth.

The "cool" footballer would appear to be equally at home on a film set or fronting a rock band and is someone who you would love to include as an acquaintance.

I have narrowed the hundreds of players who have graced the Theatre of Dreams since 1993 down to a shortlist of 10, listed in reverse order of "coolness," and will leave you to comment on my choices or nominate others that you may feel have been harshly omitted.
