'If It's Football, It's Vital'

One of Those Things!

The unfortunate opening few minutes of our Champions League tie, with Benfica, resulted in Phil Jones scoring an own goal.

Jones, who has had a meteoric rise to fame since making his Blackburn debut, ruefully reflected on his misfortune commenting to the media,

"The ball has come across, it is just a reaction and it has gone in the back of the net. What can you do?"

"It is one of those things that happens. It happens to the best players, there is nothing you can do and it has gone in the back of the net. There is nothing you can say more than that. It is football, you have to get on with it. Apart from that I think I played quite well."

"You can`t switch off in the Champions League or you get punished like we have against Benfica. We have conceded two sloppy goals but we probably could have scored five."


And as for having to go to Basel to get a point to get through to the knockout stages, Phil shares our own optimism, adding,

"We are in the Champions League against opponents who deserve to be there, so we know they are no mugs."

"But we have more than enough quality in our side to go to Basel and get all three points. I`m sure if we prepare right we will do that."


Put it this way, I`d rather be in our shoes than those of Manchester City, wouldn`t you?

One of those things or more cracks appearing... we're staring down your backs boys.

That's a bit kinky WhiteHartHotspur!
Bluedub
He scores an own goal (unluckily) against Benfica and then gets "rested" against newcastle - quality man-management from sir taggart of Bacon-nose there.

Questioning the best manager in the world about his managerial skills takes some balls fcb. Jones has played 19 games for club and 3 games for country already this season, his own goal summarised a lathargic display which even despite his age and inexperience, was poor by his standards, a rest was needed.
TheFamousNo7
Questioning someone takes balls? Wtf?
Bluedub
No Bluedub, try re-reading the first sentence again you'll grasp it eventually. fcb telling Fergie how to man manage is the equivalent to me telling Messi how to kick a ball, it takes a lot of nerve.
TheFamousNo7
So Slur should not receive criticism because of his record? Have a day off mate!
Bluedub
Did I say that? Please show me where I said that? I said it takes b0ll0x is all mate. Why don't you stop putting words in my mouth and start formulating your own? Haven't got no argument because you got the wrong end of the stick no doubt and it's far too hard for you to admit your wrong.
