I was surprised to see him come out and admit the players are behind the manager, with all the rumours of "unrest" via media. Like Jamie said, it could be just words, but I have no doubt that it was worse under Moyes than it is now. Of course, all the words about taking responsibility etc etc would mean jack shit if they don't come out ready to change things around in the next match
Before the beginning of the season I thought this would finally be the year that we'll see Smalling-Jones partnership after Smalling going on last year about how this would be his preferred partner. It's a shame really as he is awfully young, but I don't know how long we would be able to keep him broken like that.
