Hibbo and Osman already done. Duncan the most recent. Who's deserving of one?

Jags, Cahill, Arteta, Baines (when he leaves), Tim Howard, Phil Neville, Rooney

Only one I wouldn't really agree with would be Rooney. Jags, Cahill, and Baines definitely deserve them though.

Rooney didn’t do 10 years here. Why would he get one?

Sorry didn't know there was criteria. Thought it was discretion of the club. 

10 years service is the minimum criteria to be considered. I think the clubs still have the discretion to give you one or not.

Jags and Baines, that is all.

Traditionally the games were done to give long serving players a decent wedge when they retired, not needed now with the wages they earn so they're purely symbolic with any cash earned going to charity.

thanks mike for the backstory on that, very interesting concept that has evolved over time.

I think you will find that players for lower leagues will still pocket the money from their testimonials.
