    As an aside to the Hendo thread and mine and CCTV's comments on stat sites and their lack of accuracy, their rating of Virgil's strengths and weaknesses show pretty much 'Very strong' in all aspects, except tackling, which they list as 'Weak' I don't think they understand what a tackle is, well, they obviously don't. I mean seriously, how Virgil jockey's players, holds them up, keeps his eye on the ball, waits for his moment and performs numerous different types of perfectly timed and executed tackles without ever hardly going to ground and I mean like almost never, and they list his tackling as 'Weak'

    Here's some classic footage of Vidic at his very best



    Too many Cb's get credited with being 'great' because they play in successful teams, not on their own individual merits

    Cracking finish from Dossena
    There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief
