    He used to be so quick too and so strong. I think he has lost his pace and his legs. That is probably why he does not want to move upfield and get caught as he would not be able to come back to defend. It is not only yesterday but any time he has played with Mata. Maybe he knows that the two opposing players are going to double up on him as there will be no cover from Mata. These things cannot be taken in isolation. Yes he is past it and we need a new RB but so far Dalot has been founded out when defending. I feel up to now Dalot has been the poorest of the right backs so far.

    Looks like there's a decent chance he leaves this month or definitely in the summer.

    I think we should keep him until the end of the season, could leave us a bit short at right back otherwise.

    Apparently missing from the squad for the Spurs trip tomorrow, while Dalot and Young travel.

    No mention of a injury from what I have read, which suggests he may have fallen right down the pecking order. That performance again at Newcastle may have signalled his end at the club, except in emergency situations. Personally I'd let him go on a free now and recall TFM if we need RB cover

    Article also suggests we won't be renewing Jones contract either.

    We might finally start to clear out the players who have shown time and again they aren't good enough.

    Great servant to the club, but should’ve been gone yesterday. His performance v Newcastle reminded me of that game G.Neville asked to be subbed at HT, and seemed to call it quits then and there.

    Kind of hope it’s true although I do value the service he’s given us. We should be looking forward.

    He looks a stone weight heavier nowadays, seems like age is finally catch him up, looks slower and weaker than he ever was. Inter would be dumb to get him.

    Countdown to a new deal for Valencia starts today. Guess it should be done in 2-3 weeks.
    A 2 + 1 contract is likely.

    Jones is actually playing though, and quite frankly not a joke of a player.

    Jones still has value, either for us, or if we well him. Valencia has no value.

    By the way Ole talked about Valencia in the presser, it seems he would have been travelling with the squad if he didn't suffer a setback while coming back to fitness. So just looks like its a matter of getting fit. And then he will be right back in our team B, if not team A, just like Jones.

    Can see us offering him a contract but I think he'll be the one wanting out considering he's not playing much anymore.

    We just need to get this beast tied down on a new contract, then the dream of starting the 2019/20 season with Young Jones Smalling Valencia is well and truly alive.
