Nothing to do with yesterday's game; more just a general point I've been thinking about for a while. Are these three underrated in terms of their standing in the game? I've not been around here for a while, but I'm just wondering I suppose where exactly people would rank these players in an all-time list. There are a couple of important points to consider with these three, I think: - They did it in an era which is almost non-contact in open play - it must be an absolutely stressful nightmare to be a defender in the modern era. - My memory of that United 08 team is that it was not always the most dominant, and could end up inviting all sorts of pressure on the defence. I remember that Barcelona semi-final tie in particular being a complete onslaught. Evra is the one that strikes me as being possibly the most under-appreciated given the complete madness that was his overall contribution in both attack and defence, to be honest. There just came a point it seems where many people decided Cole was the better left back, but I'm not sure if I remember a lot of that sort of talk during Evra's peak. Anyways... 'exactly how good were these players?' is my question. Are people willing to put them up there with the very, very best of all time?
