Better players come and go but Phil Jones is still here somehow.

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.
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.

Phil Jones has just turned his phone back on after switching it off in June.

We could still need him this season. If he can find form and avoid injuries for a while he is a potential starter like he was under Mourinho and did well mostly.
Although under Ole and us right now they will all probably all look shit at the moment.

I know he doesn't get injured on purpose but he pisses me off.

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. :)

With Smalling leaving, he may be the best CB defensively we now have which is a sobering thought.

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.

Report in the Sun says jones wants to quit united because he is not included in the squad.

Doesn't he have to be first fit to play before anything to do with selection?

:lol:
This has still never been explained. It literally made zero sense.
We’re stocked on defenders, he’s shit and injury prone. He has no resale value and we’ve been trying to trim the squad yet this happened. I can only think he must be liked in the dressing room.

And Solskjær has won it!
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.

Just leave Phil, go away and never come back.
