Manchester United

Chelsea may have won an historic treble this year (Premier League, FA Cup and Most Balding Team) but Manchester United were a close runner up in both the Premier League and Balding Team categories.

I have previously mentioned Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney, so let's take a look at some of the rest of their squad.

Gary Neville, receding slightly but this is to be expected for a man of his advanced years and could just be a 'mature hairline'.

Wes Brown. Ok he's not balding particularly badly, I just wanted to mention his ginger afro.

Paul Scholes, the baby-faced old man. Again, a bit of baldness is expected for someone his age.

Darron Gibson, notable bald patch. And yes, he does spell his name 'Darron'. Gaelic, apparently.

Gabriel Obertan, receding and diffuse thinning.

Dimitar Berbatov, the manner of his defection from Tottenham earned him the nickname 'The Bald Judas'.

They do also have a young player called Oliver Norwood who somewhat ironically shows no sign of balding.

So, not quite as high a percentage of balding players as Chelsea, and this may have had some effect on the title race. I would advise Sir Alex Ferguson to make sure his next few signings are balding in some way if he wants to win the Premiership next year. Maybe he should go for Joe Cole or Arjen Robben.

Norwood Rating : 1-3
