Vidic Banned For One Game Only - Relief

Vidic Banned For One Game Only - Relief

So, we won't have one of our most important players available for the important trip to San Siro in three weeks' time after Vidic was banned for a red card he picked up in a competition which Inter never participated in. Next time our Carling Cup yellows will be transferred to the Champions League...

Fortunately, the Serbian defender got only a one-match ban for his somewhat harsh red in the World Club Championship final (which the European champions still won 1-0 with a brilliant Rooney goal) so, barring injury, he'll be available for the second leg at Old Trafford.

However, it is a serious blow to United's attempts to claim another record this season: if they avoid defeat at the San Siro, the champions will have gone 21 consecutive games in the Champions League without losing which is unprecedented. Let's hope Rio, Evans and Brown will be fit and up for the job!

HUGE, HUGE relief really. I was bracing myself for a 3-match ban. This is FANTASTIC news!

He got sent off, he got banned. Simple really. If you lot will insist on playing in these silly made-up competitions (made up to make money for the likes of the indebted "Champions of the World"), then it's going to reflect on the rest of your season. Only comp they could ban him from really. Do any ManU fans really believe it was worth going all the way to Japan in the middle of the season to win this mickey-mouse cup? Or do you not think there might be some correlation between playing too much and your present injury crisis?
