Manchester United 1999
It may come as no surprise to many of you that the midfield is a blanket choice.
In Manchester United's traditional 4-4-2 formation, we have picked the entire middle line from 1999.
Wide right - David Beckham
Has there ever been a better crosser of the ball in the game? One of the things that characterises Beckham and sets him ahead of most wide players is his ability to hit his crosses early.
Antonio Valencia at his best will run past defenders and cross from the dead ball line (which of course Beckham could do as well...except the running past defenders bit...). But Beckham could hit a 60 yard pass from inside his own half that would land on a sixpence in front of the strikers.
For those who don't rate him, consider that he is now 37 and has just joined his third European class team.
He went to Real Madrid on merit and became one of their best loved players. He may also be one of the most accomplished players to grace the MLS and not be past his "sell-by date."
Centre midfield and captain - Roy Keane
Oh if only Sir Alex had Roy Keane in his prime right now.
There may have been differences between the two, but nobody could deny Keano his leadership qualities (until he lost his grace and publicly criticised his team-mates shortly before leaving United).
He was the archetypical "box-to-box" midfielder. He could tackle, distribute, score goals and organise.
Who could ever forget his utterly unselfish performance in the semi-final against Juventus that drove United into the third leg of an unforgettable (and unrepeatable?) Treble?
Centre midfield - Paul Scholes
While Paul played much of the early part of his career as a No.10, we have included him here in central midfield as the "playmaker."
Nobody could hit a pass better than Paul; at his best he never gave the ball away either and could be relied on for up to 20 goals in a season. Between 1995 and 2007 he only had two seasons where he scored less than 10 goals.
So far he has 713 games and 155 goals for Manchester United in 20 consecutive seasons. How much he adds to that will depend on his own decision whether to renew his contract next year.
Wide left - Ryan Giggs
What more can you say? Some time in the next few weeks Ryan will pass 1,000 first class appearances, including internationals and the Olympics.
No doubt he will accept a contract for another season after this, during which he could pass 1,000 games for United. He could also score in his 24th consecutive Premier League season.
While some were beginning to write him off earlier this season he is having yet another renaissance and once again scoring critical goals.
He will be 40 in November but remains one of the few players in the Premier League who are able to terrorise opposition defences.
