It's very unusual for any of our players to go a whole season without dips in form. Looking at the season as a whole, I'd say Carrick, Valencia and Evans have been our three most consistent performers. Maybe Rio too. I think we probably needed to add a couple more names to that list if we were to get past a City side that's stacked with expensive megastars and had barely any injuries to speak of.Most of our players have had patches of very good form, but few have had a season of consistently playing at their highest level. I think that's probably why we're likely to come up just a little short in the end.
Because he had to make a split second decision, and unfortunately got sent off.Why wasn't he on the pitch?
As, unfortunately did most of our team. Still, bodes well for next season though right?Fair enough. I hoped for more from him. As Fergie and people on here pointed out about a month ago, he was on a very good run of form, which made it all the more annoying when he turned to shit in the last few weeks.
Because he got sent off.
It's not as though world class central defenders having excellent seasons for us in the past haven't done exactly the same thing, is it?
I think we can all agree he doesn't hold a candle to Vidic yet.Because he had to make a split second decision, and unfortunately got sent off.
It happens to lots of defenders. If we're talking about getting sent off in big games, thank feck we had Evans on the pitch over Vidic for most of the season.
Ah, whatever. It's clearly ridiculous to suggest he's on Vidic's level. I can't be bothered with the conversation if we're pretending to have this level of delusion.No. I can't. Because IMO Evans couldn't have done much more this season. He's been absolutely fantastic.
Has Evans been one of our best players this season? IMO he's up there with the best. Only Carrick and Valencia have been better than him IMO.Ah, whatever. It's clearly ridiculous to suggest he's on Vidic's level. I can't be bothered with the conversation if we're pretending to have this level of delusion.
Nowhere near his level of consistency, that's for sure. Which is to be expected. He's still very young for a central defender.I think we can all agree he doesn't hold a candle to Vidic yet.
Probably is?Has Evans been one of our best players this season? IMO he's up there with the best. Only Carrick and Valencia have been better than him IMO.
Vidic is world class, and probably is better than Evans. But Evans this season has proven time and time again he belongs in the upper level of defenders in the league. He's been amazing.
