    Nice to read this, could see the things Steve talks about when we played Blackburn. He was very good that day and had we not scored that day, it would have mostly been down to him. Really good performance. Looking forward to seeing more of him. Apparently he's getting GNev's #2. Big shoes to fill but considering he's being tipped to be England's captain one day, rather fitting.

    Great read.

    Watched Phil last night and i'm not saying this because we've signed him but he was excellent. He gives me the impression of being a bit of an all-action type of player, bit similar to Bryan Robson's style when he was with us.

    As i alluded to in the transfer section, we've been most certainly watching the lad for quite a while, delighted he's a United player in all honesty.

    Promising future ahead! I think he should get the number 4 though. The number 2 is for Rafael I hope!

    Yeah would make sense, I think he should get a number outside 11 to be honest seeing as he won't be playing, would be nice to see #4 in the starting lineup more often... new signing perhaps?

    6 would be fine too. That's if Wes leaves.

    Yeah, going to be interesting to see what number Phil actually gets.

    Paddy Crerand said on his show on MUTV tonight that Phil Jones reminded him of Duncan Edwards a bit.

    Crikey, high praise there!

    NOT A DOGS CHANCE!!! Sorry to Jonesey, but he should never be (as a person who saw the great man and was left in awe !) compared to THE MAN! It's like saying Nani is the next George Best. Jones is good and potentially his football talent is there for all to see, he is good possibly might become a really good United player, which I hope. I've been impressed with what i've seen, but a new Dunc, forget it!!!

    Paddy Crerand also said that he'd probably get slated for saying it.! Genuinely.

    I think he was refering to aspects of Jones' play more-so than actually being like Duncan Edwards.

    Jones didn't put a foot wrong today. He made one great tackle. He will battle for a first team place this season.

    Jones playing at centre half over the next few games wouldn't worry me at all.

    Thought he was great from what I saw. Made a galloping run forward, didn't look like he was going to be stopped. Great block in the box. Gutted I didn't see more of the game.

    All credit to him today you'd never know he was nineteen, if he keeps this up Ferdinand will more than struggle for a place in the starting XI when he gets back

    Is it true that Sir Bobby Charlton said that Jones reminds him of Duncan Edwards? Massive praise if true.

    Was better than Evans today, still a lot to learn though.
