    What classified as a 'defensive error'?
    Everything Evra does?

    Given loss of possession is a different stats i assume it doesnt count just passing badly at the back so stuff like missing a kick/header they should have easily got, things like that?

    Conceding 4 against Everton at home man :rofl: Strange as apparently Jonny Evans is the best defender that's ever existed.

    Yes but you conveniently chose to ignore the majority of the post.

    Yes, we have and when we've played away against a good team we haven't been good defensively (newcastle, chelsea, liverpool, spurs - how the f we won that ). It might not be soley Evans' fault that we haven't but i can't think of a stand out performance from him away from home (or at home tbh) besides one where he's been a major factor in a draw/loss.
    Evans has played in two of our four losses.

    He didn't play against Newcastle, but kudos for effort.

    Evans has been playing well, but I would never go as far as to say that he's a world class centre half. Aganist the very best, his flaws will bubble up the surface. I personally would not trust him in a Champions league semi final.

    well no.. but it seems to be pointing that way. For Ferguson to say that 'he's arguably the best centre half in the country, it would indicate that him being world class is the case, unless the calibre of premier league defenders is very low.

    he played in the others. Effort? Sorry I didn't spend my day checking through results to try and prove someone's opinion wrong (oh, wait, you can't prove an opinion wrong), unlike some, kevmeister. :L

    However, i think you'll find the general consensus among united fans is that evans doesn't have the class to play for united.

    Try harder.

    That's why he's a contender for player of the season, is it?

    You're the one that said 'blah blah, poor defensively in the Newcastle game' wrt Evans and the team, yet he didn't even play.

    The very fact you think Jones is better at CB than Evans showcases your ignorance. You decided long ago that Evans wasn't good enough and are just too damn stubborn to change your mind. I pity you.

    no it hasn't. + if you're going to be like that then really this discussion is invalid as it has been about evans' form over the entire season, not just this match.

    Im talking about this season you absolute fool. Hence the points about his consistency.

    :facepalm:

    You: Evans has only really become consistent since the run in => Talking about PL

    Very simple.

    Its cvlear you dont understand both football and Manchester United very well, as multiple people have pointed out, so im done.
