    Fantastic tonight and he’s going to get better, think he relaxed after half time because he was trying too hard in the first.

    Why do we need two threads by the way?

    I know, thats why I asked why we needed two threads, have one to discuss him when hes not our player but it doesn’t make sense now, what can we talk about in here, his haircut?

    We will discuss how long we have to wait to see training pictures. Still waiting.

    No worries bud, just seems a waste having two threads.

    So ?
    United pay players well because they can

    Financially, United is very well managed, best in the league actually. Despite having huge wage structure, it's still less than 50% of our revenue.

    The performance thread is for performances, this thread is to digest the transfer.

    So now I'm not even a real United fan, just because I don't go along with the completely uncritical "It's not my money!! Spend whatever!!" transfer muppet mentality...? Because of that I must have a low opinion about my club and see no appeal in playing for Utd? What complete nonsense.

    I care a lot about Utd and how our money is spent, and our image as something more than a destination for mercenaries. If anything that makes me more of a fan, not less.

    Being a dullard who can't appreciate watching great players wearing the United shirt, and instead whinging about how much they earn certainly doesn't make you a better fan.

    :lol: So you think you speak for the entire forum and think you can tell me to feck off just because I said something you didn't like to hear. Beautiful.

    Of course I get it from the media, including a generally trusted source like Di Marzio, where else would I get football news from? Where do you get yours, direct from the players?

    I will appreciate him playing for us and probably elevating us - at the same time I will not have illusions about why he came here rather than City. Maybe a small mind can't reconcile those two things.

    Even in a game like today you can tell how his decision making in the final 1/3 will make a huge difference. I can't get over we have him.

    Hear hear. (Although you might get a warning for attacking the poster, maybe edit your wording)

    What a bunch of BS.

    City pulled out because they didn't want to match Arsenal's valuation, how does that reflect Sanchez coming here for the money? It's a dull narrative.

    City cant have him because mikhi was playing for us that time. His contract wasnt up that time,Arsenal still had some say in it. Simples.

    The high and mighty Man City offered him a boat load of cash, £13m net and a juicy signing bonus in fact.

    Sanchez did not specifically choose United; he simply chose the club that Arsenal were willing to sell to (his priority was to leave Arsenal). United offered Mkhitaryan while City offered £20m. Therefore, Arsenal chose to deal with United and Sanchez came.

    Alexis did not submit a transfer request to move to City on either of the two opportunities. That desire to play again for Guardiola is practically a myth.

    Man, i've never realised how short he is compared to the rest of squad until i saw he played yesterday. Everytime i saw him in Arsenal i thought he sort of 178 or something, Mourinho truly love tall player.

    Not sure you'd get him to agree a pay cut until he turns 35, which is in about 18 months.

    The whole clip is full of great stuff, but the last two minutes of Messi-like runs are exhilarating, starting at 12:40. :drool:

    I don’t think he does. Media were so negative about his move, I guess the Yeovil fans just booed for the sake of it.

    Can't expect more from an inbred town really, they should be honoured to have been visited by him. Won't be less booing against Spurs, but he'll take it in his stride like the most recent player we had worthy of the #7 shirt. How sweet would it be with an Alexis last minute winner to silence them all!

    Not to pop the Sanchez hype train but he did lose the ball quite a bit? Anyone notice?

    I thought he looked good. Had a different class that you could just see

    Once he gets to grips with his teammates anf the runs and positions they get in, I think we should see some proper good stuff

    Yes he did, but so did everyone else. He doesn't stop trying things. That is what this team misses, someone who will take a risk, it might not always come off, but will be brilliant when it does.

    He tries to make things happen, isn't afraid to make a risky pass to spark an attack. You're going to give the ball away if you play like that, especially when he's in a new team where his teammates aren't on his wavelength yet, so there's bound to be a few misplaced passes.

    He's already brought so much new life to our forward play.
