    Agreed on Rafael. Definitely our best player this season thus far. I hope he'll be our right back for many years to come.
    I don't know man.. If Rio is fit.. he's still my first choice alongside Vidic.

    Granted he's looked so sloppy at times.. But at times he's looked at his best, he just needs to change his game slightly for many years he replied on his pace which he now does not have.

    Rafael will hopefully be Dani Alves' long term replacement for Brazil. He's definitely got potential to be that good IMO, and he's shown this season that he's just getting better and better. Just hope he can get a long run in the side without injury.
    And I really hope that Fergie doesn't drop him to play Smalling or even Jones at right back as soon as they're fit again.
    He should be if he continues like this! I can't see Fergie dropping him in his current form, in recent seasons he's usually too eager and makes rash challenges which he has toned down.

    I don't think I've ever seen him in his own half!

    Messi defends more!

    Totally agree man! Clearly Mags has been watching Greece bore teams to death with everyone defending and has not got that the game has changed.

    Full back is a position that's much changed nowadays man. The emphasis is much more on the attacking rather than the defending.
    As THBK says, Cafu; regarded as one of the best full backs ever. Not known for defending. Dani Alves, Maicon, Marcelo, Coentrao, Jordi Alba, Ashley Cole (good defender, but...) Kolarov. All regarded as excellent full backs, all known for their attacking prowess.

    I was just throwing it out there. If I was manager, I'd still play Rio. He has looked better this season than he has for a while I have to say.

    Again.. it's how he told to play, Maybe the tactic of letting Messi just have the ball while everyone else stares in awe would work better.. listen I like Pepe.. do I like the way he plays for Madrid? No way, he acts an idiot.. but again, Does Mourinho discourage it? No.. Pepe is a soldier in the terms that he does what he gets asked to do.. Get stuck in and stop Barcelona playing!

    On the subject of full backs - Really impressed with Kolarov lately, always been a fan since his Lazio days. His crosses are always spot on and his free kicks are exceptional at times.

    He's had his moments, personally I thought his best game was 2nd half v Spurs when he played wide left.

    Good signing though and will only get better, not really a fan of his though.
