Wes, Do You Want To Be Part Of It?

The last one must have been a very interesting of a Saturday for Wes Brown. The United defender was suspended for Newcastle United's visit and therefore he could examine at leisure what his current team does with the side that he's rumoured to be heading to.

And I can't help wondering whether his resolution about his move starts to fade away. It was the most emphatic display of the differences between playing for Manchester United and playing for Newcastle United. Wes must have realised that it is unlikely to be fun if he opts to move after all.

It is fitting that the Champions reserved their greatest league display against the side that is the frontrunner for the signature of our very own home-grown, Manchester-born right-back. He was shown what he might lose and where he would head. He must have wondered what would have happened had he played instead of Steven Carr on the right side of Newcastle's defense.

Now I know that Newcastle or any other mid-table team don't get humiliated every week. But does Wesley Brown, five-times Premiership champions want to be a part of even one such humiliation when he's still wanted by his current team that is full of attacking brilliance and are favourites for another Premiership title? It would not be a very wise move to get away from Old Trafford I think.

All right then :-) You'll win trophies sooner than Newcastle, I'm afraid.

i dunno if it occurs to brown when he gets humiliated by ronaldo in training that it could happen in a competitive game, too. that should convince him not to sign for newcastle
Vidicinho
lets be honest, he is not a particualy good player, i wouldnt have him at pompey, why do you stick to him???
pompeycarpet
hes a great defender but he does have little slips here and there. he would easily walk into the pompey team.
rooneyisgod
rooneyisgod - no, really, he wouldnt! Pompey have one of the best defences in the league - he would be very hard pressed to push glen johnson out from right back - as his form has been world class (yes, really, i mean it!) - and i beleive he can also fill in centre back - where we have sylvain and sol...no luck there!...and left back...well, we have herman hreiderson, who whilst he isnt up to the same level of GJ, he was still ranked 3rd best defender in the actim stats in october...so hes not bad either...nope, he wouldnt walk into our team, and wold struggle to get on the bench!
pompeycarpet
(reserve right back is lauren - and please dont try telling me wes brown is better than HIM!)
pompeycarpet
so basicly, i dont see why you stick to him?
pompeycarpet
