'If It's Football, It's Vital'

We Need Players Like Wes Brown

Wes Brown will accept his role on the substitutes' bench once Gary Neville makes his long-awaited return from injury

United's skipper did not feature since the 4-1 win over Bolton on March 17 when he injured his ankle. He's expected to make his comeback in the near future but his understudy Wes Brown is not disappointed by the prospect of losing his place in the side.

"It has been great to play," he said.

"It is always good to get a run in the side so early in the season.

"But Gary is getting close to his comeback now so when he does return I will make sure I am ready when needed.

"Gary is captain of the club, so when he is fit he will definitely be back in the side.

"I have to work hard, keep in shape and when I get called in I will try to prove what I can do and play my part for the team."


I'm not Brown's biggest fan, you can check it out. I think he's a limited player who can be very useful when on form. But I have to admire the way he does his job.

Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes often get respect for sticking with United through thick and thin - but mostly it wasn't too difficult to make their choice: United were and are a very good side, Giggs and Scholes are regulars in the first team and they are adored by the fans.

Manchester-born Brown, though still plays in a very good side, he's not so popular among the fans and has limited opportunities as Gary Neville is our undisputed number one right-back. Yet I feel Brown is also one of those players whose attitude you can't question and I can't remember him demanding an improved contract via the media. When he gets his chance, he tries to make the most of it but does not moan when he's not in Fergie's short-term plans.

His qualities as a player are questionable but hey, we saw what happened with Gaby Heinze. He's twice the player than Brown but that would have been of no use to us after he became unsettled and unhappy. Brown is happy to play here and always prepared to play here, whatever the boss asks from him and every clubs need these type of players. Even if they are not so brilliant.
