Better players come and go but Phil Jones is still here somehow.
Fergie would have gotten shot of him a long time ago. I know he said Jones would be the greatest ever United player or whatever but he also fiercely defended Veron but was quick to get rid when he know it wasn't going to work out.I do wonder how his career would have been had Fergie been his manager for a few years. He seemed to be worse and worse with each new coach, to the point where their various influences created this footballing Frankenstein monster. He wasnt always this shite. There used to be a player in there.
If I remember correctly, that header when he was on all fours did the trick and the attacker couldn't get his shot or cross properly.Haha.. say what you want about Phil Jones but that header at 3.17.. that is determination! Had me laughing with tears in my eyes.. I hope he comes back strong. It's not like the back line is irreplaceable.
Excellent news and a shrewd move by the club. With only 3 years + 1 optional year left on his previous deal he was in serious danger of leaving the club sometime in the next decade. This move ensures that he's a mainstay at the heart of United's defence (treatment room) for years and years to come.
