Obviously he was joking but seriously, it looked really ugly to me, I can't prove he meant it, I could be wrong, but I don't think it's clear it wasn't intentional, his form was extremely unnatural as he went into Jones. Even the commentator thought it was intentional.
The joke appears to have gone further over your head than a Charlie Adam free-kick over the crossbar.
Phil Jones fit to face Wigan, Ashley Young out for a few weeks - ESPN Soccernet
He is back
not sure who the co-commentator was (ex-pro) but he reckoned Dempsey should've seen red. He does have previous for these incidents. Leverage is bollox. It has become a recent trend and is careless, to say the least.
just glanced at that and thought it said "he is black" wtf ??
just imagine the reaction if that typo had happened
I think Jones should come of the bench against Wigan and that too only if he is needed. It is better to give him a little more rest.
With his current form, I would never leave him out, even if he has a bruised jaw...
Seriously, he's in top form... I'd also like him to rest
Jonesy in midfield!
Would have agreed if it was a little niggle injury somewhere in his legs, but with just a bruised jaw I dont see any reason not to play him. Unless we consider him so vital that we want to save him for this game and let someone like Gibson play in his place ofc, which might, surrealistically enough, actually be the case.
Saw an article which suggested he might captain England at the Euros if Terry is out. That is a bit far fetched to me, but you never know. Ramsey is already captain of Wales.
He's the new Bryan Robson.
Simple as that.
Seriously? That will never happen, it's absurd.
He's our best option to partner Carrick at the moment. That's saying something, both about our lack of options, but also about the great strides he's making.
I think he's showing a lot of desire to learn, wherever he's played. I hope he'll continue to look a goal threat from midfield, loving that part of his game.
I bet he is happy he picked United too. I mean he said Fergie promised him game time and thats why he picked us and boy isn't he getting it?
if he finishes the season with 8 goals, i'd be very very happy
I would be thrilled. I'd love it if he just kept making those penetrative runs against the "worse" teams, it makes it s much easier for Nani and Rooney etc if we're multidimensional in our attacking approach.
So wait, Jones is still our only outfield player who hasn't been injured this season? Get in!!
Well, he's made himself undroppable, hasn't he? His versatilty obviously helped, and our injuries, but when it comes down to picking the team, you have to find a spot for this one.
Another funny face expression.
The bottom left one. Photoshop potential.
Indeed. I just want to say that he is now one of my fav United players. He is such a joy to watch playing for United.
Great news.Amazing that he's become so important (with all the injuries obviously) so quickly
i still cant get over he's 19. the lad is absolute quality. he laps up so many things around him. i cant even imagine what he'll be like in his prime
Maybe it's because he's INJURED IN THE FACE
I can't believe he is only 19. Young player of the year, for me. Though Sturridge might run him close.
Last year Chicharito and this year Jones, well done SAF.
What the hell did he saw in the bottom left of that picture? Must be a sight
yeah. every time he plays, we forget his age.
he is so good.
Chris Smalling has been better IMO.
That's not any slight on Jones, Smalling has just been solid at all times, can't remember a bad game.
Smalling has been amazing.
Smallling has been fantastic, he really has. Do remember Jarvis giving trouble but can't think of much more.
Smalling was better last season than he has been in 2011/12, if only because he was playing in his preferred position.
This season he's had a few very good performances but some poor one too, all at full back.
Harsh. He's only had a couple poor performances at right back.
Smalling has had a few injuries and absences over the season mind you which seem to be forgotten about.
Ok. A couple of poor performances at full back. How many really good ones in the same position? Not many more, I'd have thought.
Don't get me wrong. He's done very well in an unfamiliar position but I don't see what he's done to be talked about as best young player of the season so far. Even his very best game at full-back wouldn't have been as good as Rafael's best in the same position.
Earlier on in the season I was very impressed with his performances there. It was only that cluster of performances when United were giving everyone a hiding mind you. He is a natural centre back.
Would prefer we got him back playing regularly in the centre with Vidic's injury now though as it is clearly his best position and I think Jones is abit to inexperienced to be played there regularly yet. Smalling and Rio with Evans as back up(which is fairly regular given Rio's situation) is what I would hope for the rest of the year.
Let the twins/Jones battle for the right back spot when the likes of Cleverley and Anderson return. I don't know about everyone else but I see Jones's long term future as a centre back but until then he will do a job anywhere.
