Phil Jones is more disgraceful than them lot.

Likes to sit around stealing a living when he could have got a loan about ten times over
He always give 100% on the pitch and by all accounts has a fantastic attitude. Strongly disagree that he's in anyway a disgrace.

I heard it was between McT and Bruno. The latter seem to have said that only players with football talent should play for Manchester United.

Don't really see an issue with this. I would be more upset if I kept seeing happy training photos with every appearing to be best chums.

We have had our worst ever PL season, there should be questions being asked and conflict.

One silhouette definitely looks like Maguire but I'm pretty sure it means nothing. This just seems like the Sun shamelessly doing the dirty and suggesting something baseless without actually stating it to generate conversation. Figures, as he's the player that frustrated fans tend to react most strongly against.
Bunch of vultures :nono:

One thing is certain, Shaw isnt involved.
If it was during training he doesnt have the breath.

My money is on Ronaldo vs Sancho.

United minus the Glazers
Why would a media source report on an altercation and not reveal who were involved? Maybe I'm missing something.

can see Bruno being one, he has a bad temper on him… Bruno and Maguire I’d say. This squad harmony needs to get a whole lot better next season if we’re to be successful.

Remember Freddy Ljungberg and Olof Mellberg hated each other - every time there was a WC or Euro - they were fighting. Ljungberg hated Mellberg for his over the top tackling in training, and Mellberg hated Ljungberg because he was always whining about his over the top tackling. In fairness I can see both viewpoints :)

Robinho and Gravesen got into it at Real as well. Turns out Gravesen was in the right.

Because the speculation is probably more entertaining and interesting than the truth

I’d love to think they were fighting because of football but in all honesty its probably Maguire head butting the tea lady, easy win.

Sure this happens at every club at every level on a regular basis. Just in the press now as it's a slow day and it's United. Nothing to worry about imo

If normal blokes can have a scrap at a 5 a side game they've paid to play, professional footballers will definitely get into regular altercations in training.

Loving all the drama because our lot are the gift that keep giving but fortunately/unfortunately it's not necessarily unusual, Neville actually said our trainings under SAF were highly competitive and often got really chippy. Don't worry lads, it cant actually be that long before they give us something else to laugh about. Maybe the receiving end of another thrashing.

Not permanently he wasn't. He is pathetic.

You do realise how long he has been here doing sweet feck all?

Obviously compounded by Ole giving him a new contract to reward him for doing nothing at all.
As far as I recall, any time he's been fit, he has been in the squad and gives his all when called upon. He's has terrible luck with injuries but I don't remember any great length of time where he was fit, not being picked and turning down offers to leave, or anyone at the club questioning his attitude like some others we could mention. You seem a bit irrational about the lad.

Fights happen in training all the time.
Every club in any sport at any level have incidents like this in training. It's the competitiveness amongst players and natural. I'm not bothered. I bet there are fights when things are going well, but because of the negativity around OT at the moment, then it becomes news.
