United - You reckon it`ll be Evans!

When it became public knowledge that Rio Ferdinand would miss the start of the season, we deemed it the ideal time to present you with a poser.

We wanted to know who you believed would partner, in Rio`s absence, Nemanja Vidic!

We provided three options and the results turned out as follows:-

1st - Jonny Evans - 71%

2nd - Wes Brown - 17%

3rd - Chris Smalling - 12%

Come the opening weekend of the new domestic season, I`ll guess we`ll see if Sir Alex Ferguson concurs with our poll results!

I think Fergie would pick blooding Evans more than playing the veteran Brown. Also Evans is the better defender.

Looking at your guys' first 3 league games (Newcastle, Fulham & West Ham). I wouldn't be surprised to see SAF choose Smalling. Get him adapted to the team straight away.

What about your major signing - Smalling - I shudder with anticipation at what the season holds. Thank goodness we haven't gone for any of those exciting players.

Jeremy we are very slow starters in the league, so I don't think we should take any game lightly. Wswilly, you're the only idiot to underestimate our youth, it was that kind of arrogance that lead to serious bruised egos when Giggs, Scholes, Beckham, Ronaldo, Nevilles, etc, etc came through the youth system.

Not really surprising. Evans has looked great lately and has hardly ever looked out of place when called up to the starting line up.

Ronaldo came through the youth system did he? What are the equivalents to the names you mention - Ben Foster for example. The truth as you well know is you are broke and have no choice but to rely on youth - and mid table at best - Fergie leaves in a huff - you appoint Gary Megson and just avoid relegation.

No Ronaldo never came through the youth system he is an example of what Smalling, Obertan, Diouf, Hernandez, etc, etc can be capable of, you don't see much now but before to long they will be up there with the best in the world. Seriously my bet still stands, Man U to finish higher than City nothing but pride on the line. How confident are you that City will finish higher than us?
