Just a quick one to say out of all the great performances on saturday it was hard to ignore Phil Neville. There is not many reports which have highlighted his display. Although not spectacular it outshone many of his recent peformances. He only lost the ball 2 or 3 times (a fraction of his usual play), he looked solid at the back and most importantly he made some decisive passes.
Overall I was most pleased with our captain and the confidence he must have got from that peformance. WIth all our players seemingly fit, i just hope Moyes doesnt go crazy and bring Hibbo back in. Although I dont hate him he just doesn't seem good enough..
On another note, has anyone else noticed that Joleon doesn't seem to have the greatest confidence at the moment? His technique seems based upon 'O shit, O shi, don't mess up, don't mess up' and it comes across a bit panicky. That said, he still had a decent enough game against a poor side and yet again would go towards improving his confidence after that England game..

On your second point, i dont think Joleon was overly shaky but like Dan pointed out above, i did notice him constantly passing the ball back to Howard when there were other options on - definitely not his usual confident play but again i’m sure in a game or two he will be back to himself.

Simple fact is he is a good right back and a lousy centre midfielder. I think he usually plays well in his proper position (rememebr the cross for Johnson against spurs last yr?)

Am prepared to eat my words after last week. He was really very good & obviously still does a job at right back.
Having said that, i’d still like to see Jagielka get a run at that spot & consign Hibbert to Tranmere.
