Former Player Remembers: Matt Jones

Recommended Posts

Nice to hear of a young player who took care of his money. 

 

One of my biggest reality checks with the ridiculous amounts of money these days is that someone like demarai gray could never even make it to a first team regular and be a multi millionaire for life. Puts it into perspective for me, and no slight on demarai who has obviously done excellent personally to get to this level when so many others don't. 

 

I remember having high hopes for him, you could tell he had a certain class to him, but alas, we all know what followed. 

 

Fair play to him. Especially for staying positive. It would have been so easy for him to slide like so many others do.

I remember watching Matt playing for us and was always impressed with his enthusiasm and effort. Sad when he retired early, but enjoyed his contributions on Radio Leicester. He was one of the best contributors they have had.

I always remember being excited when we signed him as I thought he was going to be a great player for us. Sadly that's the other side of Football were dreams are shattered quickly.

Won some balls he shouldn't have in midfield. Would've been a great player. 

 

Interesting that he complained of being unfit under Taylor.

Bought me a bottle of reef in zuu in hinckley once. Top lad! 

Randomly turned up once in a club in Telford when I was DJing. (Not to see me, obviously, I think he was doing something at nearby Lilleshall at the time)

Seemed like a nice chap.

Glad he was sensible with his money.

Wish him well.

MON treated every penny like a prisoner in his player dealings and passed a fortune in transfer funds to Taylor inc the Heskey  sale proceeds . Taylor overpaid for every player he signed and in MJ case paid probably twice what he was worth . Not Matts fault of course and his loss to injury was a huge blow to the club

Don't put yourself down, he was obviously there to see you 😁

 

Yeah he seemed very down to earth and seems like a top bloke
