Jones: I Used To Hate United’s Last Minute Goals

Speaking to the official site, Phil Jones has revealed that his favourite moment at United was our win against City in the Community Shield.

United went in 2-0 down at half time but came back to win 3-2, with Nani scoring the winner in the fourth minute of injury time.

Jones has revealed that before he joined the club, he used to hate it that United always scored last minute goals, but now he loves it.

“My favourite moment was probably winning the Community Shield,” he said. “I’d never won a competitive trophy before. That was really nice and probably my favourite moment so far. I’ve had a lot of good moments so far but that was probably the best one. I thought to myself at Wembley: ‘I’ve been here two minutes and I’ve already got a trophy.’ I used to think, ‘I can’t stand that club when they always score in the last minute.’ But now I love it. I’m not complaining one bit.”

    Been following the site for months. Finally decided to join in the fun -so go easy on me ! Just had to reply to Booch regarding Phil Jones. The boy is already a class act and is the future of United. Here’s hoping for a good win on Saturday – and the Barcodes to beat Shitty.
