The standard of refereeing in English socceris getting lower every season and today's shocking decision to send off West Brom's Gareth McAuley for a foul committed by Craig Dawson on Wilfried Bony supports that claim.

Nicky Butt – A scrapper not a fighter

Watching football, and United in particular, is a visceral experience, a sharp, intense mess of bodies, noise and smells. So it's not surprising that the majority of fan favourites are linked by a single trait: they are men with whom it is deeply unwise to fuck. In my own lifetime, that includes Remi Moses, Bryan Robson, Norman Whiteside, Mark Hughes, Paul Ince, Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, Jaap Stam, Wes Brown, Ruud van Nistelrooy – sadly, in theory only Nemanja Vidic, and though, Rojo shows promise, none of the current ponces.

Evans: I Was Too Honest In The Summer

After Wes Brown and John O'Shea were sold in the summer, Jonny Evans had a wake up call, and admitted he might only have one more season left at the club if he didn't improve on his 2010-2011 form.

When Nemanja Vidic got injured in December it should have ended United's title hopes. The fact that United have the best defensive record in the league this season, conceding just five more goals than City, speaks volumes about the way he has played with Rio Ferdinand.

Wes Brown, who joined United when he was just 12-years-old, never quite had the career he should have done. Whilst winning plenty of medals and playing an important role in contributing to the success of 2007-2008, injuries stopped him from reaching his potential on a consistent basis.

Wes left the club for Sunderland two years ago, although can still be spotted on United away trips with our fans, and his younger brother, Reece, is still at the club.
