    Great performance today, you could really see the confidence in that display. I really hope he continues to show the promise he showed when he first broke through.

    Nothing wrong with defenders making forward runs. If its done responsibility you'll often find that a defensive player from the opposition will be dragged out of position in an attempt to dispossess the player, leaving one of our offensive players either unmarked or with more space to operate.

    I thought he looked uncertain early on and his distribution was poor at the start of the game but he grew in authority and during the game and easily his best game in a while (albeit he wasn't tested physically too much which has been his downfall in games this season).

    I think he will do better with Rio as his defense partner rather than Vidic.

    Yes, but we do not play like Barcelona.

    He played well. That header he went for and didn't get almost cost us as Rio had to come miles over to cover. But he did play well, think it shows the difference in playing alongside an established CB rather than who is a young player like yourself

    When Evans makes a pointless charge forward, he leaves just Ferdinand behind him. He will have to hope Carrick drops back. Our fullbacks will be far up the pitch. We will only be left with Fletcher in midfield.

    It is irresponsible and an arrogant thing for Evans to do.

    I have no idea either, yet.
    I would say that would depend more on who they are filling in for.

    Arrogant, eh?

    A word that seems to appear in all your most retarded posts these days.

    You don't think we have a tactical plan in place for when a defensive player goes on a run forward? What about Rio, is he being irresponsible as well when he attacks?

    Clearly SAF encourages it, otherwise he wouldn't be doing it. Ridiculous to suggest its down to arrogance.

    I thought his forward runs were really productive. Created alot of space and opportunities. Almost grabbed a goal for good measure. His passing was good as well, looked very calm on the ball.

    Hopefully this performance will shut the idiot Evan haters like TheReligion up.

    That was not from his forward run though. It was from a corner.

    Is JohnMufc the new Scholesy?

    He appears to argue the toss over pointless stuff just to get a reaction.

    See Anderson and Hernandez for recent examples.

    Does this sound like a hater?

    Sounds to me like a poster who just calls it as he see's it

    I do not see how discussing Evans' forward runs is pointless. It is something that could cost us in future games.

    Like I said, I am a fan of Evans. I think he is a terrific young defender, but I do have concerns over this particular aspect of his game. I don't like it.

    It was good to see him looking confident again, I thought he had a strong and composed game that seemed to really shake off the cobwebs that gathered after those batch of stinkers.

    He did fine today which is good as when I saw his name on the team sheet I wasn't happy.
    I seriously doubted he would be back in so quick after the shambles at westham.
    Hopefully he builds on this and regains his form and shuts all the doubters and critics up, and I include myself in that too!

    this is a very weird post.

    you know its totally natural for a defender to bring the ball out right?

    Sometimes it's even necessary when he can't directly find the midfielders and that he doesn't wanna lump it forward.

    Very neat performance from Evans yesterday, a little premature to suggest he's out of his slump in form, but a very good step forward. Loved the 2 times he pushed through midfield and so unlucky with that header.

    Brilliant management from Ferguson, hopefully the injury wasn't too bad probably just a knock.

    I think yesterday in particular it was really effective. I love having a centre-half who isn't afraid to bring the ball up through the centre of the park, it always comes with an element of surprise, gives you an extra man and makes space, just as it did yesterday. So many of the best centre-halves around have done/do it. I don't think we need to worry about experienced players like Rio and Carrick plugging the gap if he loses it.

    SAFs comments in saying he's looked better in training seems to have been spot on.

    I don't know why Smalling didn't start today. He has partnered Vidic often this season and they've looked good together. We were a mess today.

    Smalling should have been in the 18, not Evans. He's consistently played better and more often. Evans isn't why we lost, but throwing him into our back four eliminates any confidence they have.

    He's getting out muscled pretty easily this season. It doesn't matter the size of the player, Evans gets out muscled.

    Hilariously in the match day thread he was getting blamed for both goals, despite the first cross clearing his head by about 5 feet and the 2nd caused by a missed header from Vidic when defending infront of the near post. Mongs will blame him for todays result but he was no worse than Evra, Vidic, Carrick, Rooney or Berbatov

    He was playing for two.

    Evans lacks concentration and doesn't inspire confidence with the rest of the back four. How Smalling or O'Shea didn't get a start ahead of him is baffeling.

    Johnny Evans is not good enough for United's starting eleven, end of.
