If Phil Jones scores the winner today after 90 minutes played then I will name my next (first) son Phil.
Still? When the feck he was a great player? With Jones it is rinse and repeat. People just forget how average he is.Still a great player. His positioning and covering is excellent, as is his clearing. He's lost half a yard of pace, but that's to be expected with the amount of time he's been out.
Unironically better than Maguire, and possibly our best CB option. Hope he stays fit, works hard, and gets a proper run next season.
I disagree, when he's fit he's very good - he's had some outstanding games for United, most famously the time he looked after Ronaldo away at Madrid. This was around the time Fergie compared him to Duncan Edwards.Still? When the feck he was a great player? With Jones it is rinse and repeat. People just forget how average he is.
His technique is bad, he tends to panic which makes whole defence nervous and has bad sense for positioning because of which he does last ditch tackles often.
Yes that’s why he used to make the England squad and went to a World CupHis technique is bad, he tends to panic which makes whole defence nervous and has bad sense for positioning because of which he does last ditch tackles often.
He is and always was average defender and liability but it is same story with him for 10 years now; more he is injured, better he becomes in eyes of some fans.
And yet you could also argue its ludicrous he hasn't had more minutes considering how shit our defenders areAbsolutely ludicrous that he still gets minutes for us in 2022, after millions of pounds spent.
Not his fault; he’s actually a decent defender when fit, but ludicrous all the same.
