    Because, really, we only have one actual right back.

    I think this would show much more intent that Jones is indeed a CB + currently a DM who can do a certain job very well in the clubs eyes. So i wouldnt mind it in that sense.
    Fair enough point, but in that case then I take it Fabios away, unsure whether his deal with QPR is permanent but surely adding another RB means the end for him. Plus I'm not 100% ecstatic then about Jones+Smalling as future CB pairing, as great as they may be, it completely ignored Jonny Evans, who in my book has had an excellent season.

    Not really, he's a full back who has spent much of his career at left back. He played RB in the CL final, he's right footed. I wouldn't say he's anymore of a left back than a right back.

    We bought him from a club where he played left back, we've largely played him as a left back, and if he comes back he'll compete again as a left back. He's no more of a right back than Evans is a left back etc.

    Evans is slightly different case considering his age and number of games played, if you look at his wikipedia for example he's also listed as defender, distinct from CB. The first bit is irrelevant, RVP was a winger at the same age, stating the positions a 22 year old has most featured as a under 18 at a different club and then on sporadic appearances for a top flight side isn't evidence of their ability to play positions. We've played him in both positions, the best run of his career and the biggest game have both come at right back. Stating him as left back is simply not the case, he's not limited to the one side and has not nailed down a position, he's a full back. The assertion he 'will' compete at left back is an assumption, one undermined by the previous statement we only have one right back. If he were to come back with two left backs and one young right back, I don't think its one that can be backed up.

    Hopefully it's a sign that Moyes wants players to play in their actual/best positions.

    £30 million+ for Fernandinho. The negotiators at City must be a bit dim.

    :confused:

    we paid like £15m for Ando...and he was a young highly rated talent...not an ageing player who isn't that highly rated anyway and who was at his best 3-4 years ago and not as good since...

    Because a £13million (plus add-ons) 19 year old is a fair similarity...

    Only if you think Cleverleys arm looks exactly like Hernandezs
    Pretty sure no one actually knows the difference between their arms...

    I was more interested in Cleverly's facial expression, he's enjoying the goal in a slightly different fashion.

    Yeah they do, don't they? They scout South America a lot, apparently. The owner's a billionaire (quite a bit richer than Abramovich and around the likes of Usmanov of Arsenal, I think) so he can afford the best ones there too. And thanks haha .

    Yeah, I heard they all live together in a gated community so there is not such a feeling of being so far from home. I can only imagine the kind of guy you need to be to gain and maintain such wealth in Ukraine. Side note, I assume you are going to be settling in for a late night watching the game tonight, you know the time GMT tip off time?
