Using they or those


I am editing sentence fragments containing two possible versions:

"...all they who would go with me."


"...all those who would go with me."


Which is correct - and most importantly, why?

They and who are both pronouns.  You do not use two pronouns together.  The word in front of who needs to be an adjective.  Those can be used as a pronoun, an adjective, or an adverb.  In this case, it is an adjective.
