Yet he recently got a new long-term contract. The genius that decided this was a good option should be made to pay Jones' contract from his own pocket.Lindeløf injured. Tuanzebe injured. Bailly injured. Maguire needing a rest and playing through pain. And Jones is still not given minutes in the EL.
I think it´s safe to say Ole does not rate Jones. Maybe it´s in his contract. "Last choice" it says.
Well, depends how you see it. Someone HAS to be that 5th choice, and preferable, without making to much fuzz about it.I don't rate Jones as poorly as some but I have to agree, if he's clearly not wanted then what was the point of the new contract? Surely the money in wages saved would cancel out any transfer fee anyway, another poor contract decision as with Mata.
I genuinely think that it was done in the belief that another club would be in for him and we'd squeeze a few million more from them for him. Obviously, no other team wanted him even if he were available for peanuts.How did he get a new contract is what I want to know?
The fact he's lasted years is madness.He's a decent defender for the most part. He just makes appalling decisions far too frequently, including decisions which will end up with him being on the treatment table again. It's incredibly frustrating to have such a brainless footballer play for us.
It's his job to play football ? He should be ready to play against anyone when called upon. In his defence it's a blatant foul on him leading to the 1st goalHe's shite, no question but throwing him against Sheffield after not playing any football in so long has got to be a bit on the manager too.
