I don’t admit to watching a lot of the SPL but the times I have seen Celtic, Tierney has looked very accomplished and we could do a lot worse than go for him. But I agree with @the nuts named eric that he may well suffer the same fate as Shaw. Obviously they are two different player but I’m thinking Jose would rather put his trust in someone like Alex Sandro who is experienced at the top level.Still very young and not really proven as been playing in Scotland but I think Kieran Tierney would be an excellent addition. Already very good and has the potential to go on to be one of the best around.
Mate and his son who go to all the youth games, U23 games as well as all the United games home and away so he might be in a half decent position to advise on how Shaw's "attitude" as you put it has been as he has seen it first hand. Told me he has struggled to complete 90 minutes in 3 appearances and if that's the case then he will go the same way as Adnan and Pereira, if your attitude, commitment and desire is not correct then Jose won't listen to excuses and he will be gone.But who is telling you that? LVG sent Januzaj away because his 'attitude' in U23's was 'terrible' which was himself and Andreas Perriera trying to score the most outrageous goal. Sometimes that football is so poor it is hard to get the attitude right. I mean is that not why Pogba was let go too, his 'attitude' at U23 didn't warrant a start in the full team.
It's easy to blame an unquantifiable if you want rid. Shaw has played at Center Back in U23's as well as full back that could lead to 'attitude' issues. I just think the guy has got himself some way to fitness, he should be getting 30 minutes here or there followed by a half maybe somewhere and then 60 minutes essentially building him up to match fitness. But JM doesn't trust him and there's no changing his mind, seen it with many players at Chelsea the first time alone!
Agree with this, Miki, Martial have had the exact same treatment from Jose as Shaw has had and them two have come back stronger and looked to have taken on board what was said to them and where they need to improve, Shaw simply hasn't and has looked of the pace whenever he has played.Well Shaw's case is a strange one really. Two successive managers have questioned his attitude and fitness. Makes one wonder if there isn't something to it. The injuries haven't helped certainly. Also mourinho is a no nonsense manager who will not give you a second chance if he feels you are not willing to give your all to the cause. Maybe mourinho is to partly blame for his current predicament but Shaw hasn't done himself many favours too.
