Vidic Broke His Collarbone

Vidic Broke His Collarbone

Chelsea fans got what they were desperate to see: Nemanja Vidic might miss the rest of the season.

The defender fell awkwardly during United's 4-1 victory over Blackburn on Saturday and had to be substituted. It was believed he had only dislocated his shoulder but of course we are lucky again (as we were all season, you know...): he had broken his collarbone.

It might mean he will be out for the rest of the season. So, I. John of Anfield will face a tough task: he must deputise for our Serbian rock during the crucial games of April and May... goodbye to the Champions League trophy?

By the way, Champions League. Louis Saha and Darren Fletcher are reportedly ready for a bench role but both are likely to be left behind as the Reds travel to Rome for the quarter-final of the CL. The squad spends the rest of the week at Rome so the absentees will join them on Friday, the day before the game at Portsmouth.

looks like you're picking up injuries at just the wrong time - could be hope for us yet!

You have better cover in defence than most. Besides your midfield and attack has been in such form this season that the opposition seldom gets anywhere near your defence! And by the way, I'm a Chelsea fan.

lets not forget brown was brilliant last season so he should be reliable cover

With Gary out, O'Shea will cover for Vidic as Brown is needed at right-back. Of course, it's possible that the Irish maestro will be used on the right and Wes will be drafted in to the centre. I'd be in favour of the former.

With all the trouble we had with JT out over XMAS it will be interesting to see how you cope at the back over the next few games, it could be closer than most of you Mancs want it to be at the end. Come On Chelsea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We seem capable of always scoring one more goal than the opponents so we might cope with his absence.
