Love that story about Fergie going around to his house before a club get together and finding a Mars bar on the table. It belonged to his wife but, he fined Pallly

But again, all conjecture. Who really knows?
Ah right, fair enough. I agree. Such a great talent but it looks like it's all going a bit Ando atm

If he's 'mentally fragile' then he needs the appropriate help. But at some point he also needs to take some responsibility. If he stays fit and trains hard and still isn't getting games then he's done all he can and is obviously free to move on, but I hardly think there will be a raft of suitors.
Well, we don't know the ins and outs. His physical condition has been a question since he was 16 apparently, but it's possible that while that would have done for some players with talent, Shaw does work hard to get himself right.

The Anderson comparison feels valid. He got so much stick during his time here, but Fergie loved him because of his enthusiasm for training and work ethic. But his natural body type and the constant injuries made it so tough for him.

Feels to me that what Shaw badly needs is games. Other managers who had concerns over his condition always had faith in him as a player. If anything Mourinho has criticised him more for footballing issues than his professionalism. It feels a bad mix of a player who needs that little more faith and a manager who will always opt for the more physically reliable, steady Eddy alternative.

He's one of those rugby players who are better at football.

Lad's over 6 feet tall, looks about 5ft6.

He's all ass.

Ultimately he's the one in charge of his own intake. It's not the clubs fault if he's at five guys after training every day.
Thought the rumours about Shaw wanting five guys every night were shown to be nonsense?

And his body may well have partitioned the caloric energy differently, leading to increased activity rather than weight gain.

He may also have been playing in a league full of pissheads.
