Jones Leaves Old Trafford On Crutches

What is it about our #4 shirt? First we had the original Mr Glass, Owen Hargreaves, and now we have Phil Jones, who seems to get injured every other game.

He was subbed off during our 2-1 victory over Reading in the FA Cup tonight and then left Old Trafford on crutches.

Jones played a blinder at the Bernabeu last week, keeping Cristiano Ronaldo’s contribution to a minimum, and will likely have been pencilled in to do the same for the home leg on March 5th. Ferguson has ruled Jones out for this weekend’s game against QPR but will have to wait and see when he will next be available.

“We’ll have to assess it in the morning,” said Ferguson. “It’s an ankle injury obviously so I’d imagine he’ll not be ready for Saturday anyway. But we’ll see what he’s like after that.”

    I find it absurd that some think Ando is fat. Is he fuck, do you think Strudwick and the like would allow that?
