I loved O'Shea. I think Fergie made a mistake in letting him go. He can play all the way across the back and in a defensive midfield position, all to a decent standard. I think he's played in every position for United, including in goal lol! Great squad player to have as cover (and you have to admit, we have been in desperate need of cover all across the back during the past couple of seasons, including this season), so I don't think we should have let him go to be honest.
He's back to chime in! :cool:
(First, damn you Poland, well played Sweden and Northern Ireland.)
Jenkinson has drastically improved and has had a solid start, still not a fan and there are far better options!
Walker will no doubt be England's right back unless Kelly can avoid injuries and improve going forward. (But Walker is top drawer at attacking)
Smalling will no doubt be a future CB star for England and Utd and I think Evans will pair with him. As for Jones I see more of an midfield role, he could be immense in in that role for club and country.
I agree with Akbar on Richards, I don't see him ever reaching his potential, he lacks concentration and England fans who say he should be our RB obviously only know him on FIFA. He could be an immense CB as he's quick and a machine in the air, has to improve his mentality though.
Pretty much all I got for now. :p
Edit: Brown - solid servant and decent cover but his best season was when Utd won the CL v Chelsea. Best right back in the world during that season. Injuries got the better of him and O'Shea too I'd say. (Not as bad as Hargreaves, you could do with him now :p )
Agree on Walker, he will be the England right back going forward IMO. Honestly, Kelly isn't worth considering, injury or not.
Jones has said that he wants to play centre back though, so expect he'll be given that chance. Ferdinand is getting close to retirement, and there's always rumors about Vidic's future. Plus we've got enough holding midfield players with Carrick, Fletcher, Cleverly all able to play in a withdrawn role.
I know Jones has done a terrific job in that position when he's played there so far, but he's much better used at right back or centre back IMO.
I agree with needing the cover now Haha! same could be said for any of the defenders we let go off mind.. One thing with O'Shea, I never got why every free kick he would come and stand by the ball like he was going to take it before jogging off to take up a position LOL! it always made me laugh anyways.
He definitely has the potential to be immense, I just think he's very overrated at the moment. Has his good games but has some awful ones, I hope he reaches his potential for England's sake and as a CB.
I've never seen Kelly have a bad game, he gets all my praise. :p But Walker will definitely be the one it would seem.
Maybe he will, all I ever hear is "Utd need a new Keane" Jones could be that, could easily be Utd's next Vidic too, only time will tell on what him and Fergie think is best for him I guess.
