Manchester United & England Balls: Phil Jones’ Midfield Role Erased From Record Books

by | 5th, December 2013

COMPARE and contrast the words of the Daily Mirror’s Martin Lipton on Manchester United and England player Phil Jones:

“Hodgson has always picked Jones as a defender and deployed him primarily at right-back” – December 5, 2013

Or as Lipton said when Brazil played England waaaaay back in June 2013:

“Jagielka and Cahill will play centrally in that back four, Carrick and Jones in front of them at the base of the midfield.”

Also in the Mirror, Steve Bates wrote on June 2:

PHIL JONES – The youngster tipped for greatness by Fergie must wonder if he’ll ever play at centre-back for club and country. At this level no way a midfielder. 5

Do they read their own papers?
