Born in North Wales, Mark's love of football eventually took him to Liverpool where he was able to study the work of Roy Hodgson on a regular basis. Despite this he still remains a football fan today, and his writing on the game can be seen all over the Internet - including several places he'd forgotten about. @Mark_Jones86.

    and likewise with jovetic. you choose a player who's been out hurt for most of the season over jozy altidore, who can't scored to save his life, and soldado, who can't score from open play to save his life? jesus christ mate, get a clue

    how can you say lamela is one of the worst when he hasn't been playing? that's ridiculous. your logic that "a £30 million player should have enough about him to force his way into any team" is laughable at best. there have been plenty of incredibly talented players over the years who should have been playing but, for one reason or another, didn't get a fair shot. that doesn't mean a player is "bad", it just means he's not getting chances.

    in theory, the greatest player in the world could get frozen out because a manager doesn't like him. that doesn't mean said best player all of a sudden is terrible just because he's not getting a shot. if ronaldo went back to madrid last night, called ancelotti a fucking wanker and punched him in the face, it's probably a pretty safe bet he wouldn't be playing much the rest of the year. but it doesn't make him a bad player.

    you should really work on the logic, reasoning, and critical thinking skills. they'll make your life much easier and you won't sound quite as moronic in your articles
