Who Is The Hardest United Captain?

After Nemanja Vidic has been named Manchester United captain, the man who we claim will murder the opposition, it begs the question over who our hardest captain has been.

    Sorry guys, I didn’t mean to sound like I was pulling age rank or telling you off or anything like that – that’s not what this forum is about at all. I think willierednut may have put my point better – it’s easy to forget how far things have come under SAF and although there’s no point dwelling in the somewhat miserable past – remember the year SAF arrived we finished 11th and most fans were actually pretty happy with that! I think it’s a bit of a warning for what could so easily happen to the club when SAF leaves – I personally am terrified of who we appoint next and how well we do under them. Tough act to follow!

    If the poll was ” Who was our most courages and determined captain” I would of given it to Robbo but hardest….Keano all the way.

    No offence taken mate. I know where you are coming from. What me and RTNK were talking about was the worst seasons during the time we’ve followed United. I’ve always said that I respected the hell out of every United fan who started following the club in the 70s or the 80s. They’ve seen it all.

    I ‘would’ usually say Keano, but I will simply say I cannot make my mind up…through pure fear that the other candidates in your poll would ever read my comment and hunt me down.
