I thought I'd respond in a meaningful way but that last line is completely uncalled for
Never understood it either. I think he'll be straight up average even in Scotland
Yep, that's another one mate.
Agree there's no sympathy required but then I highly doubt he's asking for it.
When it comes to young talent football does everything you shouldn't. Well done to those lads who remain hungry enough to fulfill their potential. For the other lads, who let it go their heads, well it's just a shame. It certainly doesn't warrant the outrage we've seen from a few on here.
They finished 6th last season after fighting relegation a few years previously.
A shining light in a very dark season.
Other than the Gerrard slip.
@Sassy Colin is going in on Adnan. Brilliant stuff.
I thought he was a very good young player and could have kicked on well. Great feet and a fine pass on him. Shame it was his own head that did him in. Thrown away any potential he had. He'll need to work triple hard to get back to even the level he was at performance wise in his first season. I don't think he has it in him.
Weren't they the ones Moyes ruined?
I wouldn't go that far.
But yes, they fought relegation under David.
People seem to think other PL clubs have unlimited funds. Buying Januzaj for £15m would more than triple most club's transfer record.
That's not true for all premier league clubs not including the newly promoted clubs.
Records by club as of Sept 2016 -
I wish he didnt change his playing style and continued his development as a winger. He never had the raw pace maybe but he just wasnt good enough as a 10, a position Manchester United has often struggled with and is hard to implement as a youngster. If he continued dribbling at defenders, beating defenders inside and outside then going for the shot or pass/cross, I'd think gradually he would improve his output and become a worrhy option for us. His dribbling really looked better than his vision/passing in that Moyes season.
Wish him all the best, but seems to lack the attitude for an elite player.
Could tell this guy was so overhyped after a few games. I remember Giggs quite clearly at a similar age and he was ten times the player.
People were actually talking of Januzaj as a future Balon d'or winner on here, madness.
It's not 2005.
I have to admit, I thought we sold him already!
He didn't do much with his initial talent, a real shame. Looks like his head just wasn't right
Adam is among the top 0.1% or some crazy number like that in the world at what he does. Caftards aren't the top 0.1% at what they do in their own town.
Interestingly, many of those record signings hardly played and have been flops.
I think you are kind of missing the point.
Well, you should make the point then in your post instead of going on a wrong and weird tangent about how much he makes. I don't think he's good enough for us either and couldn't care less if he's sold but it'd still be stupid of me if I think me or any caftard is anywhere close to being as good at our job as he is at his. There's a reason why he'll still make mega bucks whether it's at Utd or elsewhere.
The price should be 15 m pounds. It's criminal to sell players at incredible low prices, when the player is not keen to add a buy back clause.
Our negotiating stance is pretty poor; he isn't fulfilling his potential, didn't perform at a top club like Dortmund and didn't excel at a relegation club like Sunderland, we don't want him and he doesn't want to be here.
PSG once offered £40m for him when he first came onto the scene...
He's had a terrible last few years alright but I mean Liverpool managed to swindle £15m for Jordan Ibe, sooo.....
Just fax PSG, "we accept your offer. Sorry for the delay (fax issues)."
The Kosovan Nick Powell.
Talent alone doesn't get you through at the very top level, requires dedicated hard work. Don't think his father helped, too much money, far too soon.
Sell for any price, include a sell on clause just in case, but get off the books
What's brilliant about it? People are naturally disappointed a young player most thought would make it has fallen short. It's a shame but I must be missing the relevance of going on a rant about how much he earns and that we should all hate him. Slightly vitriolic and unnecessary.
And the entire Caf wanted us to show them the middle finger.
Oh well in that case they've clearly done well to recover. Only ever look at the La Liga table if we're playing someone Spanish. Shows I guess.
If he wants to suceed at the highest level he MUST learn the CR7 lesson an bulk up. You can't be 6ft an built like a reed and think you will ever be able to succeed in the senior game.
Nicky Butt said. "It doesn't hurt me as much as, say, if Adnan Januzaj went and never came back.
"He's got the level to play for United and win leagues and Champions Leagues. Maybe he's not been as dedicated, a case of too much too soon, a millionaire now."
Players of his size have excelled in the game. It's just a lazy cliché to throw around when faced with a Januzaj not making it. What he must do is get his head down and work his arse off. That work would be not just in the gym but on the pitch practising like hell. Too many people have questioned his work ethic for it to be untrue.
Lazy cliche my arse. Anyone who has seen him play over the last few seasons can see he simply isnt built strongly enough to make an impact. You can't be his height, equally as skinny, and not blessed with special pace and succeed if you cant phyiscally cope with opponents. He is so easy to bully on and off the ball its untrue. Just because certain small players have been able to survive in the sport doesn't mean all can. He needs to beef up for the same reason CR7 and De Gea did in England to excel. I insist till he can cope physically like the likes of small men like Solksjaer and Beckham could he will flatter to deceive. No amount of " hard work' without that will cure his career stall.
Adding a "my arse" or a "anyone who has seen him play will agree with me" doesn't make your point any less wrong. He's not a petal ffs. The guy has a lot of work to put in, one among which would be in the gym. That alone will not make him a top player because that's not the only thing missing.
It's not like Januzaj is pencil thin either. He has a fair amount of muscle. As much as mkhi probably
He is weakling, period. The 'he is not a petal' argument is just a dumb red herring. And just claiming "he needs a lot of work' without backing it up doesn't make you right by default just because you don't approve of the view he should bulk up. I've yet to see anyone complain of his technique, his vision or his decision making on the pitch. 9 out of 10 times complaints about his play are about work rate and driffitting in and out of games. And I'm willing to bet its because he isn't physically coping with the challenge of imposing himself at senior level currently. Januzaj in my eyes is a player similar in talent and style to Ozil. If Ozil as good as he is had to add power to his build recently. I see no valid reason why the same can't be said about Januzaj.
