After playing more games for United than any other player in our Double season last year, Wes Brown has barely had a game in 08-09. Battling to keep his first team place ahead of Gary Neville and Rafael Da Silva, Wes hardly got a game.

His last appearance for us was our 1-1 draw away to Everton back in October. Rooney’s badge-kissing feels like ages ago and it’s hard to believe Wes hasn’t been around since then, particularly with such little news on him.

However, it was been revealed today that he is recovering well from the ankle surgery he had in November and should be back in training by the end of the month.
