People love a hero. Throughout history, we have put various figures on pedestals. We have erected statues of warriors of old, gathered in our thousands to watch great musicians perform their art, created fantastical worlds of men and women who possess wondrous superpowers. As for football, the innumerable heroes it continually unearths is one of the many things that lead us to fall in love with the beautiful game.

Watching football, and United in particular, is a visceral experience, a sharp, intense mess of bodies, noise and smells. So it's not surprising that the majority of fan favourites are linked by a single trait: they are men with whom it is deeply unwise to fuck. In my own lifetime, that includes Remi Moses, Bryan Robson, Norman Whiteside, Mark Hughes, Paul Ince, Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, Jaap Stam, Wes Brown, Ruud van Nistelrooy – sadly, in theory only Nemanja Vidic, and though, Rojo shows promise, none of the current ponces.
