I thought he was really good when he replaced Neville.

But yeah, he isn't as good as Simpson or Lee, and with Rafael coming, he wasn't going to succeed really.

But Roy Keane either needs to sort out his scouting, or get an imagination.

Why is the Brazilian twins going to be so much better then Phil was for United?? '

And... sometimes its so vital to have a genuine United background and sometimes its better to buy buy buy.
I remember the rage against Ferguson when he went after Andy Cole and had to give Gillespie away plus a lot of money. The fans said the new generation of players was not for sale. This seems to not be the case now more then 10 years later.:D
I never said they were going to be better. But the Brazilians are probably going to get more game time (eventually) than Phil. Phil was already behind Brown and Simpson in the pecking order, and the Brazilians would have moved in front eventually.

And its alright saying the new generation of players are not for sale, using the attitude of 10 years ago. But if there are not going to get enough playing time or if the manager does not feel they are good enough.

And back then, the British players coming through were better than they are now.
