Dan Fitch picks his Manchester United lookalike XI.

There are a lot of big issues currently surrounding Manchester United. Will the Glazers retain power? Who will Alex Ferguson sign during the summer? Is Rooney going to play as badly next season as he just has for England?

Yet surely the most important issue of all, is the debate over who would make it into a Manchester United lookalike XI. Luckily, we're on hand to help out...

Goalkeeper: Tony Hawk AKA Edwin Van der Sar

Not the bloke with the fridge... the skateboarder.

Right Back: Micah from Heroes AKA Rafael da Silva

Rafael is not just a lookalike of his twin brother, but also the kid from Heroes.

Left Back: Paddy McGuinness AKA John O'Shea

John O'Shea is a lot more versatile than Paddy's 'thick bloke from Bolton' act.

Centre Back: Ian Curtis AKA Jonny Evans

Only love will tear our defence apart.

Centre Back: Joseph Goebbels AKA Rio Ferdinand

You might expect Goebbels to be on the right wing...

Central Midfield: Michael Urie AKA Owen Hargreaves

Has Hargreaves been moonlighting on Ugly Betty whilst out injured?

Central Midfield: Keiron O'Brien AKA Ryan Giggs

The star of Holby Blue looks very much like everyone's favourite Red.

Right Midfield: Jermaine Jackson AKA Antonio Valencia

Even though you'd expect Jermaine to star in a Jackson 5-man midfield, we're playing a 4-4-2. Which brings us to...

Left Midfield: Michael Jackson AKA Nani

Proof that it would be a bad idea for Nani to have plastic surgery and lighten his skin.

Striker: Andy Garcia AKA Dimitar Berbatov

We think that Berba might cry if we didn't say he looks like his hero Andy Garcia.

Striker: Herc from The Wire AKA Wayne Rooney

You thought we'd choose Shrek?

Manager: Taggart AKA Alex Ferguson

Gruff, Scottish blokes all look alike to me.

Chairman: ALF AKA Malcolm Glazer

Both are trapped in environments that are alien to them.

    No, I contend that Owen Hargreaves has been moonlighting on "Numbers" as Prof. Charlie Eppes, under the pseudonym of David Krumholtz.

    Some great lookalikes there though.

    Ahahahahahah. That was hilarious. My fav? The last one was just epic.

    The only Manure payers that I like are the ones that learned their football at West Ham. Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick and I am sure there are others. Noel Cantwell was one.

    Whoa there, what about Mark Strong looking like Berbatov?
