I thought he did well against Wigan, his attacking play was good and I thought he was decent defensively. I agree, he was rash but you can tell he's still raw - what with moving from a left winger to a left back role. I knew I was forgetting another game he did bad in but as you mentioned correctly, he was poor in the Braga game. I'm not saying I prefer him over Evra, just I'd rather see him get a chance as Evra hasn't been that much better defensively.
I do miss Fabio, the guy showed so much potential in the 2010/2011 season and was then dropped/injured the following season. Hopefully Harry gives him more game time at QPR and he comes back fighting for that left back spot next season.
