He's not been good at all. He's been our worst defender and he's not doing enough in attack to justify it. Players love to play against him. He can't handle one on ones anymore and he's out of position a lot. I think he's been one of our most consistently poor performers this season. It's nice though that you decided to interpret my point differently still when I explained to you in further detail what I meant. Again. Evra used to be a top 5 left back in the world. That was 2-3 seasons ago. And by that I meant you could compare him to every left back and come to the conclusion that he's better than all of the except 2-4 players. No doubt. Now when you compare him to other players you don't reach these numbers. That goes for Cashley as well which you still seem to rate highly. He's been benched a few times this season because he's been poor. Evra should have too. So that's my point. You can't put him in the top 5 bracket anymore. You ask who is? I'd say Vidic, Carrick, Nani, Valencia and Rooney. In terms of potential we have Welbeck and Smalling and arguably Cleverley, Jones, Hernandez and Rafael who are big in their respective positions. If it weren't for Scholes' legs I'd put him in there 2. I think he's among the best midfielders in the league this season. Fact is that Evra used to be a top 5 player but now when you look at other teams playing you think that they wouldn't do any better necessarily if you replaced their left back with Evra. I'm not saying replace him. That's pretty hard to do. There aren't many great left backs in the world. This season Marcelo and Albin and Alaba have stood out from what I've seen. Evra's biggest strength is supporting the winger. Marcelo is much better at that. He's a brilliant attacker. He's a better dribbler, passer and crosser than Evra. Got a better first touch as well and has better technique. That's a high praise because Evra's got great technique and he's a very good dribbler. Valencia and Bayern both have a left side that's equally as strong as ours, if not better. The Mathieu-Albin and Alaba-Ribery combos are very strong. Real Madrid have Marcelo and Ronaldo so that's a no brainer. Dortmund have Schmelzer. He's a good full back. Schalke's Fuch's has a better end product. Most top teams now have young full backs that are inexperienced compared to Evra. As such he should stand out and be head over shoulders. But he isn't. And when we discuss who's been our best player he's not close to being mentioned yet he's always playing. Carrick, Rooney, Valencia, Scholes, Evans. That's our top 5 performers this season. Yet we've conceded less goals this season compared to the last with no Vidic and a lot of issues at the back with defense and goalkeeper.
