I for one was wincing in pain when i seen vidic land on his leg tonight . So what do we all think is vidic gonna be alright or is it lookin bad for me i think nemanja is made of tough stuff so to come off means it is a serious injury . So its time for o shea , pique and silvestre to come in and push us on to glory . Give your view on the back line what would be your four man line up if vidic is out for the season?

I have to admit that it looks pretty bad. Im very worried as he is vital to
our team. At the moment Im not going to tempt fate by picking a replacement
and just hope he recovers. If anyone hears any news post it here.

When he first went down in pain I had a bad feeling..he doesn't roll around in pain for no reason..I thought he twisted his knee like Cahill did many many times just by landing from a areial challange and the injury takes quite a while so that is bad if that is what happend to Vida..Silvestre, Pique, O'Shea all have expereince (maybe not so much for Pique) and we should cope well thanks to our massive squad but the loss of Vidic is big like Terry for Chelsea and Gallas for Arsenal

i think his suffered a hamstring injury. let's hope i'll prove myself wrong but the way he fell over was terrible!
i just dont want to imagine that he'll miss the rest of the season!

Fergie said in the post match interview that he hopes it was a nerve,
presuming a nerve got trapped or something in his knee. Lets hope its not the
poxy ligaments.

u saw our squad without him 2nite lads. were perfectly capable of staying strong. he shud heal quick. he's a tuff serbian lad :D
that's not something we should rely on! nemanja is inreplaceable in the current squad and roma aren't as tough as barca and the 3 english teams!

Oooh! I didn't like it when I saw the slow motion replay. When I first saw it in
real-time, I thought he'd got an elbow in the face or something.....


However, despite the clear anguish on his face, he did physically walk to the cab
and sit in the stretcher which was a good sign. When I saw him grabbing his knee
and shaking his hand, I immediately thought back to an experience of my own
where I ruptured my cruciate ligament and this thing called a meniscus in my left
knee. I couldn't move it after that and was out for 9 months, so thankfully,
Nemanja has;t suffered that. When the camera's were going around and he was
on the ground, it showed a clip of Wayne looking down at Vidic and it reminded
me of Fabregas looking down on Eduardo when his horrific injury was sustained.
Clearly, its not as bad but I really feared for the rest of the season. I'd say its just
a very bad twist. He'll get a scan and the damage will be analysed.

As for hen he'll be back. I'd be amazed if he showed up against Middlesbrough.
Even if there was minimal damage and he said he was fit to play, Fergie will and
rightly so, would refuse to throw him into the Premier League. It's simply not
worth the risk. As for the second leg at Old Trafford, I don't think he will or should
play. We've got a nice safety cushion to have and O'Shea has the experience to
handle the Roma attack. But the scenes 4 or 5 minutes after the injury were very
promising as he showed confidence, almost actually seeming to want to get back
onto the pitch! Tough stuff! Eh?

As for the defensive line for Boro, I'd be happy to go with this:

-----Wes Brown-----John O'Shea-----Rio Ferdinand-----Patrice Evra-----

If, Silvestre was ft, I'd consider placing him in at left back just to get some game
time. The only thing I feel may falter is Rio's performance. Will the absence of
Nemanja hinder Rio? Well, if tonight is anything to go by, I fear not. Rio was a
credit and wore the captains armband with pride and led by example. He made
several crucial interceptions after his partner in crime departed. Most notably, the
one where he poked the ball away after Van Der Sar produced a world-class
save to deny Roma getting a shot on goal. So I do think we'll cope without
Nemanja for the next two games at least, but we do need him and the team do
as well.



Oh, and also another note of Fergies intelligence.

When Vidic was injured and the physios were assessing him, the 4th official
didn't allow Fergie close enough to actually communicate with them so he didn't
know what the extent of the injury was. So the wily old Scotsman decided, I'll
send Ryan Giggs out as if to do so for a warm-up, yet secretly send him as a
private messenger to deliver the news back to base! Classic Fergie! Giggsy
really fancies his chance at the MI6 now!



And to finish, I think the most appropriate thing to say is,



GET WELL SOON VIDA​

Dont forget about Neville as an option ;-)
Wes and Rio in the middle or Jonner. Other options include
Pique, Simmo, Silvestre and Hargo at rb.

I don't think Neville will feature......

Pique may play in defence. (Forgot about him) In fact, he may have a better
chance than O'Shea because he needs the experience.

Lets just say we're not stuck for options in the short-term! Eh?

Why wouldn Neville feature. He played another 90 minutes for the reseerves last
night. He may be a bit rusty but he has got a few games under his belt and he
has ALL the experience and know how. I believe he would be a good option, as
it would be hard to drop Wes, but injuries happen and people get their chances.

hehe! fergie knows what he does :) he is very experienced! and giggs is a part of united!

well your 4 men option reminds me last year's situation in the semi finals in milan when rio was out and we had to play with vidic&heinze and as you all remember well they couldnt stop anyone! let's hope o'shea(and i'm telling this because every time fergie calls him he tries his best as today) will fill vidic's gap!

as he got up and walked it's not as if we've got a michael owne situation on our hands so thats good news, i hope ad pray he'll be back sooner rather than later, e.g the arsenal game!
having said that gota give some credit to o'shea tonight did a great job when he came on i think he's a better shout than brown as a centre back as wes is nicely settled at right back now
GET BACK SOON NEMANJA !!
