Jones Looks Forward!

Jones Looks Forward!

Now we`re into the New Year, we`re fast approaching the business end of the season.

We`re at a time whereby there`s no recovery from a poor performance as sides hone in the silverware available.

Phil Jones, now back fully-fit and fighting for a starting place in the first team, has given the media his views on the way forward, remarking,

"Confidence is high but we know we have to produce and do our job every time we step out there."

"This period is always tough with a lot of games in a short space of time, but now we`re getting towards the nitty-gritty part of the season."

"It`s the time when you need to be fully aware of what you`ve got to do and make sure you do it."

"We all relish the challenge. Everyone is very focused and committed and we`re ready for the next game."


Which is Fulham, this Saturday; with a chance to edge nearer the final of a competition we`ve not won for ages - the FA Cup!

I can see Jones fulfilling a similar role to the one John O Shea had during his time with us. The way we use him either as cover for defense or midfield is so alike. He may end up mainly midfield through his tendency to bomb forward though.

Whilst I think MotorMad is right (though he will be a far superior player to O'Shea, some real potential defensively behind him) I think his primary position will be in midfield as the enforcer we lack. His fitness levels, energy and terrier-like approach would be wasted in defence.
