Ahh well. He isn't exactly ending his career on a high note, is he? Jonny Evans will play more games than him this season, I assure you all. |)

Wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. Evans isn't short of potential, and I think he'd come good when asked. Wasn't he chosen over Pique in the past?

Vidic has pledged himself to United, so we may well see a Vidic & Evans partnership as you said. Guess time will tell how effective it is.

Hmm, he isn't out for long - and like Chelsea with their injuries, Manchester United have sufficient depth for this not to be a problem.

evans is a very good defender is own right, can easliy hold his own playing alongside vidic. in his first big breakthrough season he played 30 games (playing a big part in helping van der sar go all those hours without conceding) he isnt as good on the ball as tery, but he's pretty decent on it. some think it lacks pace, but then rio isnt as quick as he used to, and evans is no slouch.

smalling is a long way off though

I can see Evans playing quite a big part for United this season the way it's going for Ferdinand lately.

United have got enough depth to cope with this. Besides, they were without him for most of last season and coped pretty well. Evans should slot straight in and O'Shea should act as a decent backup.

Wes Brown can surely slot in at centre back aswell..
He, similar to Rio, has had his own injury problems over the past few years. I don't know whether he's made his return but he can also fill in a centre half. United have various options considering they have signed Smalling, aswell as Neville being able to play there.

this, ferdinand only played 19 games last season, even ledley king played more games than rio last season, and we still had the best defensive record in the league. you never want to be without a player like rio, but we'll be fine without him

O'Shea is pretty good.

That is, pretty good at failing in an exceptionally large number of positions.

He seems to be able to play everywhere, and yet do poorly wherever he is placed.

Is it? He played well as RB last season before getting injured and season before.

I think on FM,O Shea's natural position is RB,it does help having someone like him as back-up though,he can probably play anywhere in defence and a few positions in Midfield too

Mehh, I thought O'Shea was pretty impressive at right back last season, he's more than happy to be a bit part player though, I'm sure if he played poorly wherever he was placed, he wouldn't be a Man United player.

Played in goal against spurs and kept a cleansheet. (K)
