Heralding a New Era

Rumours, in the press, had been rife that Sir Alex Ferguson was going to make a change at left-back.

The rumours insisted that Sir Alex was going to drop / rest Patrice Evra and play his latest signing Alexander Buttner

Well those rumours proved to be exactly right and what a debut Buttner was to have.

This morning, in the red-top publications, his performance has been recognised as a man-of-the-match contribution.

His rugged defending and the manner in which he drives forward shows that the money Sir Alex spent was well worth it but the cherry on the icing on the cake was that wonderful debut goal.

All that remains to be seen is whether we`re entering a new era whereby Buttner is our first choice left-back with Evra`s career on the wane.

We`d be interested to hear your point of view on the subject.

It was a great debut, a goal, an assist (I think!) and a clean sheet to top it off. For once the left flank didn't look completely exposed. However, the opposition was Wigan, a side who in my opinion is punching well above its weight just by being in the premier league. Let's see how he copes against more talented and recognised teams/wingers. I think his done more than enough though to warrant being selected over Evra for any upcoming games.

Interestingly what does this mean for Fabio also? The lads always had potential the issue for him has been recurring injury problems and I think he got injured again for QPR. I don't think we should give up on him yet but I dot think there's long left to run on his contract and he really does need to overcome his injury problems and get some solid first team experience at QPR.

Fantastic debut maybe this will be the kick up the arse Evra needs
