Regardless, Vidic is very happy to have been wearing our armband and enjoys the responsibility that comes with it. Near every ball that went into the box vidic dealt with. Vidic is a, as described by Sir Alex Ferguson, warrior — he is an old fashioned centre half who gets stuck in and generally wins most of his challenges. But I thought every time Torres got the ball he looked dangerous — not that he was going to score all the time, but he was direct with his dribbling and Vidic had to foul him a few times. Spiders are one, being caught wearing a trilby hat and ghost pets — however I think we can fairly conclude that the sight of Fernando Torres puts our no-nonsense, swashbuckling centre half turn into a nervous wreck. Give Evans a chance alongside Vidic. Today was a great opportunity for Vidic to banish those demons — sadly for him and for us — he is going to have to wait until the clocks go forward to have another duel with the Spaniard.

Nemanja Vidic: Manchester United's young stars need leadership
Manchester United's young defenders need help from older heads, according to the club's former captain and centre-back Nemanja Vidic. However, I would argue that going from 0. Vidic gave away four free kicks today — two of which he was booked for, whilst never looking comfortable against Torres — who was still nursing an injury from the previous week. Neymar happily hops, gives mascots high-fives 2d ESPN. I just hope that it is a temporary thing and as I say that he and Rio just need time.
By the way — Drago as a gay icon?? Show 25 25 50 All. You have to accept that Manchester United always need to win trophies and, when the club don't, players have to accept some criticism -- and that can be hard for the younger ones to take. Nothing has really changed in that respect. Understandibly Fergie would never say that not buying Torres was his biggest mistake in charge of United when he Torres now is in Liverpool. So to conclude — is it a mere coincidence that this statistics highlight our defensive frailties since the defeat?
