From what I've heard over the years, these things happen relatively regularly without us hearing about it. As long as one of them didn't seriously assault the other it's no big deal.

Maybe the more telling issue is that we are once again hearing more about what's happening inside the dressing room than we should be.
Exactly. It's a big story as we are a bag of shite atm, but fights on training ground are hardly new.

Bruno vs Maguire. He’s been sick of him

I've seen Matic shove Bruno in the middle of actual official matches. So given that he's leaving and has nothing to lose, I'm guessing Matic decided to let loose and wail on Bruno in training.

Atleast it's not confirmed who threw the punches like it was crystal clear in that infamous Bayern Munich training bust up. :lol:

Really hope it was a wild scrap.

Maguire stood there gormless and De Gea had the fury of a thousand stallions came out the locker room swinging.

This happens all the time, but considering rumored dressing room issues, this could be a problem.

Dont base it on the silhouettes haha, if the Sun knew which 2 surely they would say which 2. Not something that's going to be super injunctioned.

And knowing our spineless bunch it wont even be a fight over anything football related. Most of our players dont care enough about football to fight over it. We see that every game.

Thanks, I meant during the era of Sexton/Atkinson?
Paul McGrath, Norman Whiteside, Kevin Moran, Bryan Robson, Arthur Allbiston - all down the local after training for a full on session - they would have been scrapping amoung themselves and their shadows…..no mobile phones, no internet, no sky sports, no social media in those days - you could get away with murder!

For those of us old enough who grew up in them times - the not knowing was the magic of it all!

I used to encounter that lot in my local, The Griffin in Bowdon. I don’t remember any bad behaviour from any of them.

If they haven't made it up they'd name them.

Something that would have happened every week when we had a competitive squad. Probably the softest team in the PL.

Keane and Big Pete; read somewhere that Keane punched Heinze and went after Teddy Sheringham (although that one could be BS). Ruud vs Rio was another, although i'm not sure it got violent (Rio was defending Ronaldo)
I love Keane even more now (because of Heinze, not Sherringham)

Jesse booked the villa in Dubai that Pogba was planning to book for some injury recuperation in October.

Probably Phil Jones kicking Maguire in the head like Hartson and Berkovic and Jones will be out for another 6 months

Truth is, it happened in the canteen and Shaw heard there were only 20 pies left and he pushed Phelan out the way into Maguire, who failed to stop him and they fell over a table.
