You'll find analysed both 4...Bb4 and 4...Be7 in the forthcoming "Playing the French" book by Quality Chess. My assesment of both lines: fine game for Black!

John Watson has made a strong case for 4...Bb4 in his "Play the French- 4th edition".  It's certainly the response that has caused me the most trouble when playing the white side.

I have a very vague memory that the MacCutheon might be scoring a little better than the others (and the Winaver?).

As for answering the question you meant to ask, goodness knows and it depends on all sorts of things.
