Put it down to frustration.I didn't mind him as a player and would definately rate him above Rojo. His mind would have been saying, we (Foxes) had a place in the top four and let it slip and then my old club grabs it. Didn't wait for the red card just walked. I guarantee he went to Scott after and apologised, he's usually not that sort of player,potential leg breaker.

Evans is hated by many Bolton fans after his tackle effectively ended the career of our US midfielder Stuart Holden. Holden was destined for big things and was expected to move on to a big club, with Utd among those in the frame. The career ending injuries to him and Fabrice Muamba were a big reason for Bolton's failure to stop in the top flight.

Sorry Sparkles but he has history as has been pointed out. Tried to two foot Shelvey at Anfield but JJ saw it coming. Evans theN yelped, rolled around a few times and Shelvey was the one punished!

Not saying he didn't commit a bad tackle in the freeze frame you have "researched"  and appears both players have made contact, I don't remember it. Shelvey is no angel either just this one incident doesn't make Evans a serial offender.

 

 You can go back through time and make a point for many players who have "history" starting with Roy Keane, Fellaini aka the human windmill, Ivanovic, Phil Bardsley, Huddlestone, even Fernandino all would be right up there with poor and dangerous tackles mostly done in frustration or to delay a move.  Then you could point to players like Paul Scholes who couldn't tackle to save himself.

You could write a book full. All I am saying I think he regrets it,red mist.

The season is over except for the Europe league who would you say are your top 3 players? 

My top 3

Antony Martial

Harry Maguire

Luke Shaw

No doubt in my mind that Fernandes when he came in provided a surge of improvement in the team that I don't remember another player in recent times having such an impact.Having said that lets see him over a full season.If Pogba stays we could be in for a treat.No argument on the 3 you picked just like to make it 4.

Exactly lol. So heartwarming to see Wilai's affection for 'JJ' who was total <deleted> for them.

You missed Champers comment about Holden then? Mine wasn't so much researched as remembered vividly as I was livid watching it at the time. I agree that JJ was not an angel but Evans tackle was a two footed lunge. Had VAR been around I think both would have seen red.

No I didn't miss it. 2 incidents over a career don't make you a serial offender. If I had a dollar for every 2 foot lunge I've seen over 70+ years I would rival Bill Gates.Why you both have selected this one incident must be either because football is in recess and you don't have some thing more relevant to talk about, or you have some agenda against Evans. 

 

I myself in the late 60's committed a dreadful 2 footed, slide tackle on an opposition player, it put the player 2 m over the the side line. Result I suffered 2 fractures of the left leg,finished my career at 27. He did visit me in hospital.😀

 

Most lunges come out of frustration when things are not going your way. Now we have VAR offenders should get appropriate punishment,no argument there but it won't go away.

Time to move on.

Sancho Transfer "Very Likely" This Week! Jan Aage Fjortoft Man Utd Transfer News 

 

Fjortoft is a funny guy. His accent reminds me of that German comedian.

 

Looks like Sancho will go through. He'll have to endure the usual extra scrutiny which comes with being a big money United signing. That might take a bit of pressure off Pogba though.

ManU are in advanced negotiations with Borussia Dortmund to sign Jadon Sancho for an initial €100m (£90m); a fee that would set a TRANSFER RECORD for an ENGLISH player - the media of course will have nothing negative to say about that as its ManU.

 

City will get 15 per cent of any sale ABOVE the £8m paid for Sancho in 2017; a £90m fee, then, would give us £12.3m which could rise with add-ons on the initial fee (we'll have received in total £8 + 12.3 = £20.3m). There is no time limit either, so City will get the money from Sancho's next move whenever happens.

 

Looking forward to taking ManU's money; happy with that.

You're happy with it. But actually it should serve as a reminder that you let the biggest young English talent slip through your hands, in order to play a load of foreign mercenaries.

We've been through this so many times before.

 

If we'd LET HIM GO then of course we'd have egg on our chops, but we didn't. HE decided he didn't want to stick around, work his way up the squad (remember he wasn't even a regular squad member at the time) and compete for the left position with Sane or for the right position with Sterling.

You have to prioritise young players and risk putting them in ahead of more experienced players, knowing they will make mistakes. You obviously couldn't give him enough reassurances, and he probably looked at how many academy players were flourishing in your first team at the time. Why would he believe he would be given enough chances?

 

By the way... Sane worked out well didn't it!
