Evans Not to Be Risked?

Evans Not to Be Risked?

Although Sir Alex Ferguson has inferred that he`ll be going with his experienced players in Cluj, one tabloid infers that there could be one exception.

It cites the possibility that Sir Alex may express caution over the selection of Jonny Evans.

With Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and our club captain Nemanja Vidic all sidelined with injuries, Sir Alex is reticent to lose Evans and could be looking to give Scott Wootton his Champions League debut.

Wootton, 21, made his debut in the Capital One Cup against Newcastle and received the following accolade from the boss,

"Scott reads the game well and passes the ball well."

It`ll be interesting to see if the tabloid paper has anticipated the situation correctly.

Seriously if consistency at the back is the issue with the defence Fergie why don't you consider getting a pair of more reliable and less injury-prone defenders. Not sure how long Ferdinand has got left to be honest and at his age should be resigned to more of a squad role anyway. Vidic is our only world-class defender but is still struggling with injury and fitness problems, he proved he's still quality when he did play but there's still big questions over how often he will play. Evans well never be anything more than back-up in my opinion, no matter how many good performances he has he'll lays have that one where he proves to be a liability. Jones seems more of a CDM or box-to-box midfielder to me whilst Smalling seems far superior at fullback than at CB (not aggressive or vocal enough in my opinion). I don't see anything particularly special in the academy at the moment for the CB position which must mean we should be looking towards the transfer market. Obviously it's not a simple case of signing to classy defenders and putting them in the team together but something must be done as it is an area that really does need strengthening.
