    Yeah, it'll be like when Richard Wright signed for Man City.

    Hope so, rumours growing at my lot that Pereira may be a loan signing after the way Henderson developed last season. I guess there are worse clubs to have a good relationship with than Man U.

    I think somewhere like Villa might be more likely for him, given how high Mourinho rates him and the Bruce factor (if he stays). Think it was Johnstone they had last year

    Someone happy to be third choice and probably cost buttons, sensible signing. I'd be more concerned about the rumours that Jose is content with the gruesome twosome Valencia and Young as first choice full backs while dross like Shaw, Darmien, Blind have not been moved along.

    Difference is he can lose it in a few days - week (thats if it wasn't just bad angle/bit of a food baby). How long have you been trying to lose yours (I'm at about 6-7 years FTR)

    I have never tried to lose it. It would take more than a week, not often you see a gut on a modern footballer unless it is McNulty. No wonder Mourinho has a go at him all the time.

    Not often you get topless shots of them when they've not trained in 2 months. Those that you do look like Shaw's, because every player puts on a bit over the summer and it looks very bloated compared to their usual physique, with it all getting burned off in pre-season. In fact you only have to look at the picture Shaw put on instagram the other day to see he's already burned off his holiday fat.

    Shaw has always been a bit hefty though. Often criticised for being in poor shape mid-season etc. Harsh that he's being picked on when he's off on his holidays perhaps, but he has (perfectly valid) previous for this sort of thing.

    I think Jose uses it as a go-to excuse. He'll spend weeks saying how hard he's working in training, then drag him off saying he's out of shape. It can't be both, otherwise the coaches need a booting. I think he's a bit like Rooney in that his stocky build makes it easy to call him fat (Rooney usually had the lowest fat % at the club). He hasn't helped himself when he's played mind, could be rustiness but he's looked off the pace of the game a few times.

    Maybe. Though when I lived in Southampton a few years back a couple of season ticket holders I knew would always bang on about how (despite looking fairly handy as a player) he always looked a stone or two too heavy.

    Shaw seems better going forward than defending most of the time. Not sure he has the fitness level Jose wants. Which seems to be someone who can run end to end all day. Probably needs to leave while Jose is still in charge.
