Jones’ profile aged 26 in 2019

Jones’ career history until 2019

At the start of the game Phil Jones is already good enough to be in the first team of a premier league side, but in 2019 he has turned into a all round sensational defender. His price tag is mahoosive and he is unlikely to ever move from United but it is a possibility to sign him on loan. His mental and physical attributes are all-round great and he knows how to tackle. Jones is very versatile and can play further up the pitch or at right-back. A great player if you can lure him from United.

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

    An outstanding player but just a shame he’s near impossible to sign.

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 15, 2012

      Yeah, I guess you could sign him if he becomes unhappy at Man Utd

      • comment avatar Darren Smith July 15, 2012

        To be fair I have seen him join Newcastle a few seasons in so it possible.

  • comment avatar Nick July 15, 2012

    Hahaha the last two profile pictures have been class. TBH I have him for United in 2016 and he’s a lot better stats-wise than this. Do you want me to upload a picture?

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 15, 2012

      It’s probably because he was personally trained, here he was under CPU management. If you could upload them in the recommendation page that would be great.

    32mil in 2014 to join my Sunderland. The deal breaks my spending record but never regret! I play him as a midfield man. World class! Even Fernando and Nainggolan must leave and Sandro must be on the bench because Phil Jones is my boss at the center of the field. (He plays beside Andrea Poli)

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 15, 2012

      That’s a great buy mate, he must be good to get in front of those two

  • comment avatar somim July 15, 2012

    what a picture !!

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 15, 2012

      Yeah, couldn’t resist when I saw it!

  • comment avatar Chip Thompson July 16, 2012

    I took over Man United in 2014 and Jones has been my number 1 CB ever since (now in 2023). Sadly he lost his ability to play anywhere else other than CB, so I retrained him to be able to play RB too, not that I ever need him for RB, it’s just nice to have options. He’s also club and country captain.

    The only downside is he’s requested a transfer a couple of times as he believed he had achieved all he could at the club. Luckily, I’ve been able to talk him out of it each time

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 16, 2012

      Glad he’s been great for you, shame he wants a transfer though

  • comment avatar Nelson Costa Inácio July 16, 2012

    Phill Jones is special kind of central defender, he is a ball playing defender and he can provide some good long passes to launch counter attacks.

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 16, 2012

      he is one of thebest CB’s on the game

  • comment avatar step July 16, 2012

    i have to say this kid is very talented but prestia and zouma heaven seams to be a lot better. but as you said it was managed by the cpu

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 16, 2012

      IMO zouma and prestia are two of the best defenders on the game and are better than jones, but there is no denying jones is a great player

  • comment avatar Rob July 16, 2012

    I got him for £30 million in 2014 with Sheff Wed although I did use the money cheat, something i’m not proud of

  • comment avatar BWR July 16, 2012

    Have you checked out Georgy Schennikov? Seems like he could become one of the top left-backs in the game.

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 16, 2012

      his price tag is massive but he is still deserved of a profile, it will be done soon

  • comment avatar Soccer Sagacity July 18, 2012

    I signed Phil Jones for Portsmouth in 2015 for £19m. I play him as DM in a 4-3-3 formation and he is fantastic.

  • comment avatar Nathan Morris July 18, 2012

    Off-topic I’m sorry, but what skin do you use, Karl?

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 18, 2012

      I get tired of skins really easily so I rotate between 3 or 4.The one I am using in these screenshots is the Infusse dark

  • comment avatar yayy July 26, 2012

    Great picture LOL!

  • comment avatar Callum August 31, 2012

    Got him for 11 million in the winter of my second season at Spurs, he was unhappy at United. Incredible bargain. Also got Kagawa free before my third season cos he was unattached. Luck has been falling my way!
