Should be starting. He is our best defender.

 

Talks to all the other players all the time, knows when to go long and not short (though his short passing is the best we have out of defence), drops deeper. He just reads the game better than Morgan and Maguire.

Discounting yesterday, Morgan seems to be more assured with Evans next to him, much like he did when Huth was there.

I have thought this also.

Any combination of Maguire/Morgan/Evans against pace is a car crash.  This Puel needs to accept now.  Disaster yesterday.

The two of them made a pigs ear of yesterday’s defensive line .........twice .....

Yep. Like I said though, Evans knows when to drop deep (probably because he knows he isn't fast). Morgan, on the other hand, pushing up and getting caught under the ball at least twice.

Should definitely be starting ahead of Morgan. I assumed he was signed as a starter - bit of an odd one.

 

sir Alex named him as one of the best cbs he had at Utd of which he’s had some very good ones. 

 

The club probably feel that they owe Wes a starting place after what’s he’s done for the club but unfortunately he’s just not cutting it any more

Must be perplexed as to why he never plays (unless there is injury) when he sees morgan and maguire's comedy performances. Guess he thought he could take Morgan's place if he joined us lol

Thought he looked good yesterday and should be starting games. There's a reason big clubs were after him last season.

 

If anyone's gonna blame anyone for that last goal, it should be N'Didi who decided to ping a long ball across the pitch straight to a Wolves player when all he had to do was hold it!

I am thinking now if Puel picks Wes for the next game, I will be reluctantly joining the 'outers'.

Agree with most on here should go Evans and Soyunchu for rest of season or Evans Maguire.

 

Need to get Soyunchu up to speed and let him make any mistakes this season. Let's face it he's probably going to cost us less points than Morgan has this season.

We wouldn't have seen of much of Wes if Evans had got settled in, and Harry had stayed also stayed fit. We are lucky Morgan has managed keep a pretty good level in the last few months, even if he creaked horribly (along with others) against Wolves

 

I guess the case for Soyuncu will also be getting stronger, and I think he needs a run in the side before the end of the season, but Evans is probably the most influential and experienced CB we have.

Evans is the only defensive leader we have, none of the others take charge and organise people

Needs a continuous run in the team, his longest consecutive run of games this season has been 4, which also happened to coincide with what has really been our best defensive run this season

 

Cardiff (A) - 1-0

Burnley (H) - 0-0

Brighton (A) - 1-1

Watford (H) - 2-0

 

3 clean sheets in 4 games, unfortunately though it does seem like he has a thing for picking up little niggly injuries that keep him out for a week or 2, so it can be a problem for him to get a good run of games going

Puel will start Morgan most of time because he’s the captain he’s already said that. We should of given it to Kasper or Vardy at the start of the season.

I like him a lot. It’s such a ****ing cliche but you can genuinely tell watching him that he spent time playing in that Man U team under Fergie. He’s just a level above our other options. We’re lucky to have him.

Playing as a sweeper in the middle of a back 3 would really suit Evans. 

 

Huth was immense in this position, reading the game, mopping everything up and commanding our defence. I think Evans would have a similar impact.

Might as well join now because as long as Wes Morgan has 2 working legs and a contract with the club he’ll be in the starting line up.
