Should Gary Neville start ahead of Wes Brown this season?

Gary Neville played a full game for the Manchester United reserves this week and along with Mikael Silvestre is considered fit to play a role in the remaining games this season by SAF.

While Silvestre will most probably be used to give Patrice Evra a breather, it is Neville’s return to the fold which is more anticipated and talked about.

Wes Brown, for all his critics and flaws, has been an able deputy at the right-back post and the run in the team has helped him in terms of confidence. He may only be first choice because of a lack of better options, but that will probably change once Neville is deemed fit to start a game.

And this leads us to two questions:

Should Neville get the captaincy when he starts for Manchester United?
Should Neville start ahead of Wes Brown on merit (as opposed to shifting Brown to center-back to cover for Vidic or giving Brown a breather)?

What do you guys think?
