BR - Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic was an absolute giant against Reading in the FA Cup last night. This was truly a captain's performance, but he isn't getting any younger and succession is a real consideration.
One of the reasons is that Sir Alex does is not yet comfortable in playing his captain in every game.
Fortunately, in Patrice Evra, he has a vice-captain who hardly misses a game. Since the beginning of 2007/8, he has started 272 games out of a possible 331, more than any other player.
