United - O`Shea Sets Record!

United - O`Shea Sets Record!

I was probably as surprised as anyone to see John O`Shea leading Manchester United out last night.

But, in doing so, O`Shea has set something of a record.

According to some statistics we`ve uncovered, he becomes the 19th player to captain Manchester United in the Champions League / European Cup which, incidentally, is more than any other club that has participated in the competition.

As for O'Shea captaining the side I couldn't but think why? Though looking at the squad who else is capable of being captain? Scholes is to quiet, Van Der Sar maybe but he has enough on his shoulders organising the defense let alone the entire team. Then there's the man himself O'Shea, when you look deeply into it, he is a bit of a role model to the younger players. Great attitude towards the game, quiet life off the pitch, very vocal, good work rate though he may not be a symbol of hope to the players he definately deserves their respect.

John O'Shea is a player any team and manager would love to have, there's no bs with him, he doesn't sulk and go to the press when he's not playing, he's always ready and able to come into the side and not look out of place, he can play so many positions, hes a great professional, plus he is actually quite a good player.
