    Yes, he was really very, very good back then.

    Then Man Utd started playing him out of position all the time and the injuries kicked in.

    Baah doesn't count. We're on 12 without Deeney and Gray.

    Jones is a top player . Only the unenlightened do not realise this.
    If he stays fit , a big if , and if we pull this off, then this would be a
    massive signing for us .

    BTW people who judge a player on a "gurning" foto probably guess the roadworthyness
    of a car by kicking the tyres

    Sir Alex Ferguson said he could have been the next Duncan Edwards (late Busby Bare who died so young)

    Yeah, it's a minimum of 8 over 21 players, and we're well over it even now. Would like to think that won't be a stumbling block over any potential move for Panzo

  6. Hope you're right but I felt exactly the same before we signed Welbeck.

    "If fit " Both are quality .

    I like to give the benefit of the doubt to the club but this is one signing I'd really struggle to get behind.

    Putting a marker in here just to see the thread swing to optimistic praise of this once it becomes more likely.

    If he does join, with our medical team we'll never see him play

    Yes, he's good. But it won't matter if he doesn't play.

    We're just not in a position to take a risk on him right now, unless he's willing to sign for peanuts. With a financial situation like our current one we can't afford a highly paid long term sicknote.

    I don't feel quite as apprehensive about Jones seeing as there probably won't be an immediate need for any new CB given that Sierralta is staying put and WTE might not be playing in Cape Verde, but Jesus Christ he'd still be a gamble, and probably an expensive one too, much much much rather we go for Panzo

    Toon are currently looking like favourites to sign PJ on loan, so hopefully we won't have to worry about him clogging up our treatment room.

    God help the poor souls who still think he's **** after we've signed him. The clappers will be gunning for them

    He has just arrived at London Colney in 4 carrier bags

    Sierralta and Phil Jones would be the most polar opposite of sexiness partnership ever.

    Don't think this has been mentioned yet, but Josh King is also homegrown, so there's another one for the quota.

    Phil Jones would be an abysmal signing. Man Utd pressure?! He has been the weak link every time I've ever seen him. Slow, ponderous and dumb on the ball. We may have well converted Deeney to centre half. Nothing to do with guring faces or looks (why is that relevant?) He is just abysmal.

    Throw on top of that an injury record worse than Danny Wellbeck and his glass joints.
    No please for the love of god, No.

    You're not 100% sold on this idea then?

    Worth bringing in for 3 months just to see where he is at.
  22. Yes. We could get him fit before he signs for Brighton ?
