    with rio’s problems he’s going to get a big chance to become the number 1 back alongside vidic this year.good luck to him

    I am the first poster on this topic LOL

  3. rooney the new king says:

    damn LOL second poster

  4. RedScot says:

    Perfect. I often wonder do the United Players have a course on being sensible rational and articulate.
    To actually make sense and speak properly with tact and style and answer questions posed.
    Brilliant to see his young Bro given a run as well in the States.
    Not taken along for a jolly.

  5. Costas says:

    He might get an extended run at the beginning of the season. I hope Vida plays in the Ireland friendly. He should be well rested and ready to go by now.

  6. willierednut says:

    A future United capo.

  7. Jaansdad says:

    Future captain of United.
    Very mature for a 22 year old. He knows that he isn’t 1st choice at the moment but he will be ready to step up when he is needed.
    Looking forward to young corey fulfilling his potential.

  8. Tom says:

    He better get used to getting an extended run in the team as Rio will be a while before coming back. Quality player, very capable understudy to Vida and Rio. He is going to be a United stalwart for many years to come. Rio’s natural successot and, agree with above, could be future captain.

  9. busby says:

    Him and Vidic were absolutely immense at the end of last season especially against City and Spurs. If they continue in that vein, Rio may well find himself without a spot when he comes back.

  10. TPC4ManUnited says:

    I agree with what you guys are saying about this young lad but I hope he gets a handle on making silly mistakes. For example when he lashed out against one of the MLS Allstars during the second half, the man got by him rather easily but he had help from his team to stop the advancement, but he took the man down blatantly which in a real game would have easily got him a yellow or red card. I’m sure he will mature in the seasons to come but please think about the outcome of such acts, how it can win or lose a game for your team. Overall I think he will be a true Manchester United player for many years and like many have pointed out a possible captain of the greatest team in the world. Get on with it United!!!

    Screw Balotelli i hope he goes to Man Shitty so that Jonny can shun him down and show him what the EPL is all about. What a bloody brat twat that guy is, fitting for that shitty team alongside the likes of Adebayor, Tevez and Robinho who all have attitude problems… Ouh did i forget to mention Bellamy? Hell no! i hate him and the lot!

  12. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    pissed but loving RoM

  13. aig alex is god says:

    He and brown just dont work.he looks nervy besides wes but calm and composed besides vidic or rio.will be a world class defender but is still learning.needs to score a few me thinks but given our terrible set pieces cant blame him much

  14. DJ says:

    hahaha loved his kung fu kick on drogba… a true united

  15. Costas says:


    Thanks. Good news about Antonio then. No one bothered to fill us in one what his status was back in May. Didn’t even know he had surgery. He will probably start the Newcastle game then.

  16. The Real AB says:

    Have to agree with AIG. He still needs some time to develop. If he is playing along with Rio or Vidic then he is fine but along with Brown I don’t think it works out well for him.
    But yeah he has the potential to be one half of our CB pairing for maybe next 6-8 years.

    Good to know that Antonio is alright :)

    Can’t wait for the season to start.

  17. Ulster Red says:

    ill echo willie and jaansdads comments, definaltely future captain!! ill never forget his debut for norn iron only 18 against the spaniards, unreal

  18. doncobaino says:

    had Torres in his pocket that night Ulster Red, and has gone from strength to strenght since then.
    I think if he continues his progress he will be incredible.
    I just hope corry becomes a good player as well. because he plays the hargreaves role and it would be nice to have two Evans’ in the same team!

  19. Ulster Red says:

    you knew that night this was a brilliant player we had

  20. back to hull and back says:

    evan did get forward a lot the other nite. he reminds of rio. maybe fergie has told to get forward more. shanme about his strike in goal. but i am sure he will score a goal soon. aslo more ruonmers yesterday surfaced we will make an offer for ozil once they conme backe per season. if i were them i would for him now. sonme like barca madriad could conme for him. all do i am to beilved there realy intersted in him and they will make a move in jabuary . which leaves in no hurry to sign him. i think were jiust trying get the price down rahter than paying overe the odds for the lad
