Back when Jones was still shooting for a spot with Germany, Loew went to the press and said Jones needs to calm down, be less hectic, and play more precisely. Loew never called him up again, and that description is as accurate today as it was 4 years ago. If you analyze Jones in a vacuum, he's OK. But consider the impact he has on his teammates. Chandler's cue to get up the sideline and add overlapping width is knowing he has defensive cover when he does. Instead, Jones is the one all over the place, and Chandler is forced to stay put more often. How is Gatt supposed to cue off of Jones? Or Gomez? Both had little impact on the right, and that's partly because of their "supporting" #8. Look, if people want to play Jones as he does with Schalke, awesome. Sit Bradley, put a more attacking midfielder in front of Jones, put a DMid behind him, and let Jones be a box to box animal. So, who wants to sit Bradley? Who wants to restrict Bradley's forward movement by making him a dual 8 with no supporting 6, or have Bradley play the 6 behind Jones? Or, you ask Jones to be the 6 he was at Blackburn, which requires he stops being all over the place.
