You'll have enough games to judge him on, there will be the Champions League games he'll start in, the England Internationals and the World Cup games he starts in (injury permitting).

Fair enough. I'll come back to you next Monday after he's fucked up again at the weekend.

He was culpable in both goals, Russ, but I stand by my opinions on this.

Eerie:

Summed up what I was talking about at the weekend. Did you see Stokes second goal? Jones showed his class there didn't he? Can't see Mourinho putting up with shit like that for too long.....

You said "I'm guessing it means he can't defend" so why do I have to explain. Bore the fuck off.

'Eerie - I see you are praising Mourinho below. Are you still of the opinion that his style of management (in your face/energetic, etc) is only suited to a younger man?'


I think his star has faded from what he was, but when you spend £500Mil in 2 seasons adding to what was already a good squad, it's a bit hard for ANY manager not to be successfu. Allardyce would do the same jobl. Regardless of that, he's always known his centre half's, and he rates Jones very highly.

It's just one of those silly expressions in football that make little sense, like 'early doors'. Who the fuck dreamt that one up?

Re: England v Slovakia 2-1
In fairness to smalling, I think van gaal properly sorted him out - he was excellent under the dutchmans guidance when before I think he flattered to deceive and had been fortunate to have previously been surrounded by vidic evra rio etc.

In fact, mourinho really reaped thebrewards of van gals work last season because the organisation was already instilled in the team.

In terms of England, it's odd that we don't really have a proper world class centre back any more. It used to be a given that we'd be fine in that position at least. Tomkins should look back with a twinge of regret at a missed opportunity because if he'd kicked on and fulfilled his promise he'd have had caps by now. Much as I hold Allardyce in total disdain, his comments about how Tomkins could have been an excellent player but was more worried about his hair than his performance probably do hold some water

How do you defend your way out of anything?

Re: England v Slovakia 2-1
I'm guessing you're saying he can't defend, but that makes no fucking sense at all. How big is this bag? Why would he be in it in the first place?

Yes. As I said, luckiest player alive. Right place right time.

You genuinely believe the Man Utd supporters think he is top quality?

They've had people like Bruce, Pallister, Stam, Rio, Vidic playing there. Those players are true quality. You compare Jones to them and it almost makes you laugh.

And, as I said, that's why we have become insignificant on the world stage. Because we have bang average players at international level.

Re: England v Slovakia 2-1
"Couldn't defend his way out of a paper bag"

What exactly does that mean?

Re: England v Slovakia 2-1
Interesting debate ref the CB's.

I've never really taken any notice of Jones really, probably because he rarely plays, or never use to. Bit of an old school CB I suppose. Mourinho does value that in a CB, as he usually wants his defenders just to 'do a job'

Cahill and Smalling I rate, but they are a level below real top class. Cahill however has held down his place at Chelsea for years now despite them spending 20+ mil on defenders at the drop of a hat.

Stones will never become the star some were hoping. He has stood still or even gone backwards and lost confidence, to turn that around now would require a huge effort.

Eerie - I see you are praising Mourinho below. Are you still of the opinion that his style of management (in your face/energetic, etc) is only suited to a younger man?

Re: England v Slovakia 2-1
Well, he has and will continue to win things at club level, if he steers clear of injuries, which is what has held him back.

Russ of the BML 12:39 Fri Sep 8
Re: England v Slovakia 2-1
Listen.... You, mourinho, south gate.... I don't care. Jones is dogshir as a top level player and exactly why we win fuck all.

Re: England v Slovakia 2-1
I'd also add that Southgate recently said that Jones is now England's best defender. I mean, I know you're not a Southgate fan, but I reckon he knows a bot more about centre backs than you, along with Jose.

Re: England v Slovakia 2-1
Do Norway qualify for every tournament unbeaten?

Anyway, as opinions go, you said Lallana has been absolutely dgshit for England, when he's been England's best player (confirmed by winning every England player of the year award recently) so I'll probably ignore yours about Jones, and go with Jose Mourinho's, who has him first choice at Man Utd (Smalling, who you said was complete and utter dgshit in the past, is 4th choice).

I enjoyed your rant, though.
