Cheers. Yeah, fair play to him, backed himself to go elsewhere rather than sit in our stand collecting his paycheck.Sure, was always obvious to me that Smalling was the one reserve CB with the right ambition to say "feck that". It's a good decision for all.
Always annoyed me that. He was decent enough but always got lumped in with Calamity Jones for some reason..... bundled by our fans as “Smalling and Jones” “the clowns” or “chucle brothers” even though your defending is on a much higher level than Jones, and lately being demoted from first team to 5th in line by OGS.
He wasnt shite, come on. Jones and Rojo (and probably Bailley, jury is out) are shite. Smalling was functional I guess, could be relied upon to do a job, but we now need a bit more than that.Smalling, Rojo and Jones are all equally shite. If players are not good enough, it is not up to Man Utd to distinguish between the grades of shite, seriously. We need to have a better squad
Personally think we will miss him at some point. Not convinced by Lindelof, think Tuanzebe will take his spot before season is out.
