I only wish Fergie had shelled out when he had the chance. Terrific player
I can't wait for him to leave City. Carrying the team for years and just as you thought he's finished he find a way to keep coming back.
Aguero weight = 70kg.
Value of 1kg of gold = £32,696.48
70 x 32,696.48 = £2,288,753
He's worth much more than his weight in gold
Like you, I’m looking forward to him buggering off. I assume you are joking with the ‘carrying them for years’ quip - they score goals from everywhere and they have done (sadly) for years.
He would have gone down as possibly the GOAT if he'd tested himself at a big club. When all's said & done he'll be remembered for being better than Shaun Goater. To be remembered as a true great of the game you do have to have played on the biggest stages, where you are under the most pressure. We had 2 in Ronaldo & RVN, admittedly though these players are in the select few.
Yeah I know but without him they would've been a lot worse off. It's not possible to win titles without a top striker.
Aguero is pretty much done at international level, maybe even Messi too. Argentina are already preparing for their next generation.
Do the same maths with Lukaku, I bet he isn’t.
For Lukaku to be worth his price tag (£75m) in gold, he'd have to be 2294 kilograms.
So he's not far off.
Neither really needed him though.
Suarez was better than Aguero and links up way better with Messi.
And Benzema-Ronaldo had a great understanding together.
In Zubizarreta's words though, who was at the time their footballing director, Barcelona preferred Aguero over Suarez, but only the latter was available.
I’m sure Messi would have wanted Aguero at Barca. City were just never going to sell.
For club football they’d probably link up better than they do with Argentina considering they’d have a better mid behind them.
If Van Nistelrooy is a true great then so is Agüero. Their achievements and stats are actually very similar, neither won any of the biggest trophies (CL, World Cup), neither even appeared in a CL final. They both had good scoring records for a Manchester club and for a Madrid club.
Agree 100%, have said this many times over the years, he would have won us a few more league titles.
He would have been a bargain...instead we were told there was no value in the market!
In hindsight how many would have been against Rooney leaving for City in January 2011, only for us to pick up Aguero in the following summer?
We would have struggled for the remainder of the 10/11 season, City wouldn't have won the league on goal difference the next year, RvP wouldn't have come here, Rooney wouldn't be stinking up the place for years to come etc.
It's a no brainer for me in hindsight but at the time I think it would have been unthinkable for most. The equivalent of that today would be Pogba leaving for City and us going for someone like Neves (not a great comparison but the best I could think of).
Why wouldn't have RVP still arrived?
Interesting to actually see the number resulting from this idiom... just another papable piece of evidence of how crazy today's football money is
What an absolutely phenomenal player! Comfortably in the top 3 strikers all-time in the Premier League, and will probably end up at least 3rd in the top scorer rankings before his career is over. Already he has the best goals/games ratio of anyone in the top 10, slightly ahead of Henry. Without having checked, he probably also has the best goals/games ratio against the top six.
I remember watching his debut for City against Swansea. He looked incredible and scored twice, while David Silva also played brilliantly. Those two have been so instrumental in the success City have had over the last 10 years.
Too similar imo. If we had Aguero there would be no real need for RvP.
RVN at United - 150 Goals in 219 Appearances. 1 League title, 1 FA cup , 1 League cup, 1 community Shield, 1 golden boot
Aguero at City - 222 goals in 322 Appearances. 3 League titles, 0 FA cup , 3 League cups, 2 community Shields, 1 golden boot
But RVN is a true great, while Aguero is just better than Shaun Goater . That logic.
Edit: Mixed up between CS and FA cup numbers for Aguero. Fixed it.
Not to nitpick about a borderline non-trophy, but Agüero has won the Community Shield twice.
Looks like you mixed up FA Cups and Community Shields, actually.
If there's one thing I'll respect Aguero and Silva for is that they actually brought trophies to City. Some players do jackshit, then move because "I wanna win trophies" when they could have contributed to trophies themselves. Aguero and Silva actually did it.
Excellent. Well done for posting this.
That 70kg, the way it is distributed gives him a very low centre of gravity as his leg muscles are quite big.
I bet for his height, his BMI puts him in the overweight to obese range.
Based on a weight of 70 kg and height of 172 cm, his BMI would be 23.7. This is in the upper range of 'Normal weight', but not yet technically 'Overweight'
Both two of the best footballers we have seen in the PL.
I watched an interview with David Silva and each year he has lost a bit of weight while increasing his strength and fitness.
He says that he is training harder than ever.
Both fantastic players as well as fantastic professionals and role models to younger footballers.
They earn their money.
You see. I knew I should have worked this out first before posting.
Thanks for taking the time to work it out.
Making a late push for PFA Player of the Year. If City are top of the table in April, I'd back him to win it.
Yeah, how ridiculous does this look today, given how we spend now.
In this game there are players who win you games and players who don't. That's the only real value there is for a top club.
He's ridiculous isn't he. I can't see him catching Shearer. He's simply going to run out of time.
Then again look at Lampard on this list.
1) Alan Shearer – 260 goals
2) Wayne Rooney – 208 goals
3) Andy Cole – 188 goals
4) Frank Lampard – 176 goals
5) Thierry Henry – 176 goals
6) Jermain Defoe – 163 goals
7) Robbie Fowler – 162 goals
8) Sergio Aguero – 160 goals
9) Michael Owen – 150 goals
10) Les Ferdinand – 149 goals
Aguero & Shearer were great PL strikers. They are though a level below RVN. Massive difference between playing for Utd & Real, than City, Athletico & Blackburn. It's very difficult when you are under constant pressure & scrutiny week by week. Aguero & Shearer never really had these kinds of pressures in their careers. It really put's RVN's numbers in perspective.
Disagree. Aguero and Shearer would have walked into any of the great Utd teams imo. We’ve been blessed with exceptional strikers over the years, but none more exceptional than these two.
2018/19 POTY, for me.
Definitely a contender. I saw this on reddit recently, and it really highlights just what a career he's had. Such a consistent player.
(Obviously Messi/Ronaldo are a different breed)
He's also hard not to like.
Matched Henry's goal tally at Arsenal... in 48 less games.

Legend of the league. Still can’t get over the fact we didn’t get him from Atletico.
He's a quality quality player, but he's been able to do this in a side that is so good because they broke the rules. It's partly down to that. No surprise they break records left right and centre
No value in the market though...
