voted irwin, because he was a solid 8/10 every game. ever dependable, always solid, could take a mean free-kick too.
evra is on the right track, if we forget his last few games. he is still the best left back in the world in my humble opinion and a few years in the same vein will give him a much better shout for this position.
although i never saw roger byrne live, and have not really seen to much video recording of him, i get the feeling from what my grandad says, he would be right up there with the best. the united captain at his death in munich, and capped numerous times for england. he can be added to a long list of united greats that i wish i had seen play live.
i know i was like shiiiiit man ill never be accepted in the irish club on here again now haha!
nah but tbf Evra i think if he keeps up his level of performances from the past 3 seasons for say maybe another 2 or 3 will be held in the same regard as Irwin or maybe even higher! Irwin never had a bad game while Evra has had a few stinkers(happens everyone i know) but Irwin was more solid so gets my vote he also had a sweet free kick and penalty too
Given a few more years with the form we all know Evra has, its not a surprise if he can overtake Irwin. For now as it is, evra still have if not a long way just a couple of things to improve including his defending skill as i had always prefer his going forward, i think he should do as good as in defending as in going forward since he is a defender first and foremost. Until then im going for Irwin. :thumbsup:
