There’s been a predictable reaction to The Sun’s front page Phil Jones ‘news’ story

'Even the free sticker album is a bigger story'


It’s Sunday February 19, 2017. Here is a look at some of the main news headlines…

In Iraq, government forces have launched an offensive to liberate the western part of the city of Mosul from Islamic State.

Across the Atlantic Ocean, President Donald Trump has once again attacked the media at a ‘campaign rally for America’ event in Florida.

Oh, and Manchester United’s Phil Jones has sacked a couple of cleaners…

Yes, the ‘news’ that the ‘mega-rich’ defender has decided to axe Nigel and Angela Stubbs over a £300 bill has been deemed so important by the folks at The Sun, they’ve decided it’s worthy of appearing as the main story on the front pages of The Sun on Sunday. 

Here, have a look.

As you might well expect, those that have seen the headline after it was shared by the BBC’s Neil Henderson have been surprised to see that a story so trivial has been given the front page treatment.

Perhaps this tweet, pointing out the offer of a free Paw Patrol sticker album which shares the same front page, best summed things up.
