Gibbo: Vida Has A Go At Us When Necessary

Darron Gibson has hailed Nemanja Vidic’s captaincy style, as we come towards the end of his first season with the armband.

“He’s a good captain,” said Vidic. “Everyone gets on well with him and he’s a good leader. He’s a nice man but when he wants to, when he has to, he can give someone a dressing down.”

  2. tr says:

    I still believe Gibbo could be a good midfielder in the future. First?

  4. Stephen says:

    Well Gibson should be getting more of this from Vida than any other player!!!

    Get rid!

    “He’s a good captain,” said Vidic.
    wtf? :)

  7. Costas says:

    That’s it Vida. They should respect your authoritay!

  8. KingOfStretfordEnd says:

    He’s a rock. A warrior. If looks could really kill, Vida’s would. But when he smiles, he looks too pleasant to kill an ant.

  9. bobkoh says:

    I love Vida! He can give any players a dressing down if he needs to…including Rooney! Slap him around to wake him up! Score more goals, you’re short of 10goals!

  10. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    @Costas, Who wouldn’t respect Vida’s authority in that dressing room? I mean, come on, can someone honestly take him on and live to tell the tale.

    There is an old joke of how Vida came late to training on one day and Sir Alex Ferguson fined everyone for coming early. Sure, it is an old joke, but could very well be true. :P

    And if even SAF is frightened of him, then what about those puny players who look like ants in his presence.

  11. Costas says:


    Haha, if we start saying Vidic facts here, this thread will end up with 1000 comments. :P

    If only he was on the pitch at Anfield. :(

  12. willierednut says:

    Keane would scare the bejesus out Vidic. ;)

  13. King Eric says:

    Balaji – Yeah mate its a true story is that about Vida arriving late and he bollocked the others tongue in cheek for arriving early!!

  14. Prakash says:

    I wouldnt want to be that someone when Vidic is mad.

  15. smartalex says:

    Rafael is scared of no-one. Gary wouldn’t back down. Wayne would have a 50-50 chance.

    And if we accept that the queensbury rules don’t apply, Darth Scholes will be more than a match for anyone, except Roy Keane.

  16. willierednut says:

    smartalex – Too right about Rafael. He’s a tough wee so and so lol.

  17. wayne says:

    looks like ivan drago “i must break you”

  18. Singh says:

    Gibson Legend

  19. Singh says:

    of the Gibson family.

  20. smartalex says:

    He does wayne, exactly! How about Steve Bruce to be Rocky Balboa?

  21. wayne says:

    @smartalex lol he’s getting on a bit but bet he can still handle himself

  22. smartalex says:

    I’ll bet he can, wayne! Also Steve has the personality to carry it off. He is so laid back and gentle!

  23. willierednut says:

    Drago took an injection to the ass. He’s no machine.

  24. wayne says:

    @smartalex also got the face “adrian”

  25. smartalex says:

    @wayne – No make up required for Steve! All great actors need a good nose!
    Imagine the slow-motion replays!

  26. indiandevil says:

    We would need more of the same from Vida if things dont change for the better. Gison has another 2 months to save his United career as I see it.Will he captilize remains to be seen.
    An article on Fergie v/s the media, however pro United for a change :)

  27. Kings says:

    Vidic is a rock, the best defender in the world. Can you imagine the media outcry if he played and smashed that cunt Gerrard in the way that scouse bastard Carragher did to Nani?

  28. bchilds says:

    I think Vida has been a good captain this season. I know he should have been more responsable at Chelski and not get sent off with only 30 seconds remaining and subsequently suspended from the bin dippers but overall very happy with Vida being captain.

  29. KingOfStretfordEnd says:

    Lol, chuck norris jokes ripped off:

    1.When Nemanja Vidic does a pushup, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the Earth down.

    2.Nemanja Vidic once ate an entire bottle of sleeping pills. It made him blink.

    3.Nemanja Vidic played Russian Roulette with a fully loaded gun and won.

    4.Nemanja Vidic puts the “laughter” in “manslaughter”.

    5.Fergie didn’t drop Darren Fletcher, Nemanja Vidic dropped Darren Fletcher.

    6.Nemanja Vidic doesn’t mark players, he permanently stamps them.

    7.Nemanja Vidic once turned up for training late – Fergie fined the rest of the team for being early.

    8.Vidic never retreats, he just attacks in the opposite direction.

    9.The only time vidic was wrong was when he thought he had made a mistake.

    10.When Vidic gives you the finger, he’s telling you how many seconds you have left to live

    11. Vidic doesn’t wear a watch, because he decides what the time is

    12.Vidic Is Not A Member Of The Expendables Because Everytime They Tried To Tattoo Him The Needle Broke

    13.Lightning doesn’t struck twice,Vidic does

    14.Once when he was in school Vidic had to write a story on bravery he got a A+ for writting his name at the top of the page

    15.Vidic has won more titles than Liverpool’s squad altogether.

    16.In Serbia they’ve stopped naming roads after Vidic. Nobody crosses Vidic and live

    ” “He’s a good captain,” said Vidic. ”

    I think you mean “said Gibson” ?

    Vidic has definetly been my favourite this season. Outstanding performances, and a true leader. I know some were skeptical about giving him the armband at first, but I never doubted him.
