Phil Jones’ face is capable of a lot things; bringing joy to millions, making young children cry, inducing labour in pregnant women. But apparently ‘the face’ has met it’s match in the unlikeliest of places: Jack Rodwell. As Sunderland’s new signing rose above Antonio Valencia with ease, Jones called upon his secret weapon in a moment of desperation. But apparently pulling a ridiculous face has no power when confronted with a rising centre-mid.
Jones shouldn’t take the failure of ‘the face’ to heart. It still has a role to play in Louis van Gaal’s new-look United. However, it’s perhaps time for Jones to go home, set up that mirror, and put in the hard hours off the pitch to ensure his facial expression game gets back to it’s previous heights.
When Phil Jones was a kid he pulled a face, the wind changed and it stayed like that.
