I know Vidic is good but he cant carry Ferdinand and help have the best defensive record in the Premier League.
I've heard it said previously that Brown is about as good as a wet paper bag.
So apparently, not only are Vidic, VDS and Evra carrying the other two to have the best defensive record his year, they are also well on their way to bettering their previous defensive record of just 25 goals in 97/98, having currently conceded 15 with 6 games to go.
Speaking about Brown, are United crazy not to pay him the 55K he is asking for. Previously, I'd have thought that was over priced, but just thinking about it now, I can't remember too many times this season I've groaned in disgust after Brown stupidly tackled from behind at the edge of the box, or totally lost concentration to be made a fool of.
I also think he's developed his attacking game which was pretty much non-existant in previous seasons. He's got great height and pace. Why can't he be Gary Neville's successor, and he'd be cheap at less than half Rios 110oddK and would save millions if we go into the market, millions that I would much prefer be spent on a top striker: Benzema or somebody of that quality (not many around) or how about Drogba?!
