It's ridiculous even looking at him, England don't produce enough decent youngsters so tough shit until the FA change their attitude to grass roots and football coaching. Too busy giving away £200,000 to each Prem team to encourage more away fans! Obviously £3 billion in tv money isn't enough for them to help the fans on their own.
It's a joke that he's not playing really. He was our regular LB during pre-season and played excellent. He's also played one game at RB this season and had a great game. As good as Evra is and has been so far this season, I think it's time to start thinking about the future. It's a shame that Buttner is the man that seems to be the backup to the LB slot though, since I rate Fabio more. Buttner is great going forward, as is Fabio, but Fabio's better defensively to me.
I also don't get why we've been playing Smalling and Jones at RB when we have Fabio. If Rafael's injured, then to me Fabio's the clear cut choice to play RB.
Hope the guy gets more of a chance this season and that he stays.
