Potential hostile atmosphere averted gives a chance to blood some new talent and gives the fans the opportunity to say farewell to some long (and longish) serving players

Tim Howard - very rarely do you see a goalkeeper serve 10 years at any club, despite a drop in form and conduct since his World Cup heroics in 2014, Howard should be looked back as solid keeper and has been great value for what we paid United for him to sign permanently in 2007. Will be given a hero's welcome when he goes back to the US this summer

Steven Pienaar - his second spell has been blighted by injuries but was still a popular figure and one half of one of the finest double acts in club history with Leighton Baines. Will likely go back over to the Netherlands or could do a job, providing he stays fit, for a Championship side

Leon Osman - Product of the Academy and a Youth Cup winner way back in 98, Had to wait till the tail end of Moyes' second season to break through into the first team and never looked back. Could always be relied on to do a job and scored some pretty memorable goals, namely the club's goal of the season v Larissa in 2007/08. Will likely take a drop down a division, possibly back to former loan side Derby depending on how they do in playoffs

Darron Gibson - Made a big impact when he signed during the 2012 January Transfer Window, famously bagging the winner on Deadline Day v City inbetween the club signing Nikica Jelavic and re-signing Pienaar but sadly, much like his time at United, injuries took their toll and he missed large chunks of subsequent seasons. Lucky to still be given a chance at the club following his drink driving antics, will be another to drop a division after he goes to the Euros with Ireland

Tony Hibbert - an injury has put paid to Hibbo making a farewell cameo on Sunday, another academy graduate from the same Youth Cup side as Osman, who had been an ever present in the right back role since debuting during the 1999/00 season up until Seamus Coleman returned from a loan spell at Blackpool and dislodged him. Will likely retire and take on a coaching role within the club
