Michael Brown: Wants to play as many games as possible

Michael Brown: Wants to play as many games as possible

The experienced Brown, who counts Manchester City, Sheffield United, Tottenham, Fulham, Wigan and Portsmouth as his former clubs, has been on the substitutes' bench in recent weeks.

He made his last start for Leeds in the FA Cup defeat at former club Manchester City on February 17, while his last league start was at Middlesbrough five days earlier.

Brown, 36, made his league debut for Manchester City in August 1995 and accepts time is catching up with him, but still wants to play as many games as possible.

"I'm there for when the manager feels he wants to put me in the team," said Brown.

"I'm there to help the lads along. I've seen a lot of it before so I'm ready and waiting if the manager needs me to go and do a job.

"You always want to play as many games as you can, but I'm still pleased really, I feel I've contributed to the season.

"I've probably played 20-odd games. You could always play more. I want to play all the time.

"But I'm going to find in my career now that I'm going to play less as you get older. It's just inevitable."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
