Mark Wilson must have emmense self belief if he thinks he can force his way into what is argubaly the best midfiueld anywhere in the world. And i wish him all the best in his attmpets to do so. It is tremendously difficult as a youngster at United knowing that as a midfielder you have to fight your way past Butt, Blomquvist and Fortune just to have a place on the bench. Players such as Simon Davies and Ben Thornley have in past years found the task too great, and moved on. However, for the time being, Mark has decided that he fancies his chances of taking Keano's place in the centre of midfield. Wilson seems to be a lot like Keano in the way that he plays. Although he doens't have the physicl presence or confidnce that Roy has, he is certainly agressive, and has great passing ability, Unfortunately, he will miss the first half of the season with an ankle injury, missing opportunites to play in big games. United certainly could have done with him if Keane is still injured for the game agaisnt Dynamo Keiv in two weeks. He does have a bright future at Old Trafford, its just a question of whether he can be bothered to wait for his opportunity.
