Vidic's Season Is NOT Over

Vidic's Season Is NOT Over

Relief, I think: the club confirmed Nemanja Vidic will be out for 2-3 weeks, meaning he could be back to face Barcelona. Of course I made a lot of assumptions here: I assumed that we will get through Roma (good chance I think) and that Barcelona will knock Schalke out.

However, it hardly matters now. What is certain is that despite landing awkwardly and appearing to be in serious pain in the 30th minute at the Stadio Olimpico, Vidic's injury is not as serious as many of us feared.

A club spokesperson told 'There is no major damage to left knee, and he will be out for 2-3 weeks.'

Say it will be three weeks (though Vida was back sooner than expected last season): that means he has a chance of facing Barcelona in the Nou Camp (April 23) and almost certain to be fit for Stamford Bridge three days later.

I hope, though, that he will miss no more than two weeks thus being able to play at Ewood Park on April 19.

he will miss middlesborough (hopefully wont need a strong defence), roma (again, same as middlesborough) and arsenal (a concern, but o'shea has proven he is a more than able replacement.....also, isnt this the perfect chance to try our pique?)

Glad to hear it isn't a season ender. We are certainly better equiped this year to cover for a couple of weeks...

Pique is definitly worth a shot but i can see a Wes/Rio pairing and O'Pie filling in at right back.Hopefully Nemanja will be back for Blackburn and we get no more injuries,fingers crossed!!!

it looks better than last season when we were without silvestre and vidic this time but both will be available for the end of the season this time. boro have on of the least potent attacking force in the prem so that should be no trouble, the roma tie is already won and when we last played arsenal we could just as well have fielded pique as they rarely crossed the halfway line

i wouldnt want to put brown in cb and o'shea rb, why upset the balance of the defence that is performing so well? liek-for-like swap for pique or preferably o'shea...not silvestre! please god no!

I know what you're saying about balance,I just think Brown is a better CB than O'Pie.Didn't Fergie once say that Brown is one of the most natural CB's he's ever worked with.

brown played the whole season at right-back why change now? i think it will o'shea... but who knows. u4l: it surely won't be silvestre, the boss is not stupid
