    Nicky Butt

    All of Butt's United's goals has just been on MUTV. He scored some cracking goals for us.

    How will he be remembered?

    He's a United legend for me. Even had a decent career with Newcastle after he left.

    Solid steady player who at his best was amongst the top holding midfielders in England if not Europe. Peaked quite young and was always going to struggle for opportunities when Scholes was converted to a midfielder.

    Top player, great guy aswell. Don't think he was a good enough player to be a legend but he's fondly remembered.

    I was quite young when he was playing but remember enough to think he was underrated and underappreciated. I don't consider him a legend but he was a very good player.

    He was vital to our earlier success, Nicky Butt.

    Scored some important goals for us and he could tackle!

    Good player probably didn't get as many chances as he deserved as he performed a similar role to Roy Keane who was the captain was a great servant to the club and when called upon very rarely let the team down.

    totally agree - like the 99 champins league final in his makeshift central midfield partnership next to Beckham.

    I have changed my mind, I would take a present day Nicky Butt in this midfield.
