Wes Brown made his United debut ten years ago this week, and a decade on the Longsight-born defender is enjoying his best football. Now for the trophies to cap it all off…

For me, this season, it's been amazing to be playing. I've not been injured and I've been getting games under my belt and getting used to playing week in, week out. It has been great to play so many matches and I think I've done OK.

It was only really because Gaz [Gary Neville] got injured that I've been a regular this season, but playing every game helps you improve and gives you more confidence – I've definitely discovered that this season.

The back line this year is one of the most solid defences I've been part of. As a back five we've played a lot of games together and when you do that you form an understanding, not just between yourselves, but with the midfield lads as well. Individually we've done well, and as a group we've helped each other and that's shown in our results.

There's a great set of the lads in the dressing room and the boys that have come in have settled in well on and off the pitch, and brought a lot of quality to the team.

Cristiano [Ronaldo] has been unbelievable – without a shadow of a doubt he's the best player in the world at the moment. He's taken his game to a different level and I'm sure he'll get more goals this season. I'm just glad he's on our side!

Even for his team-mates, it's exciting to watch him when he gets on the ball because you know there's a chance something's going to happen, whether it's him setting up a goal or scoring one. He's capable of producing something out of nothing.

It's now ten years since I made my United debut against Leeds in the league on 4 May 1998, and I don't know where the time's gone!

I've had great times here in terms of winning trophies and playing in big games, but I've also had bad times with injuries. I've been lucky enough to win a lot of medals and hopefully that will continue this season and beyond.

The 1998/99 season seems like such a long time ago, too. It was my first main season in the first team and it was amazing to be a part of such an achievement.

If we could achieve something like that again during my time here, it would just be unbelievable...
