Don’t be using logic fella, it doesn’t fit the narrative and gets them all hot under the collar
Yep, that's the guy. A guy who has mainly played LW all his career and whoscored.com lists crossing as one of his weaknesses was somehow, according to moupurists, going to come in a solve our RW issues and provide all the crosses for Lukaku to score from, thus bringing us to glory. Or something like that. Bullet well and truly dodged.
His reply was so silly that I couldn't even bother to reply though... How does saying '50% of profits' alarm people into thinking it's about taking 50% of the revenue?
Also, I'd be very interested to know how paying a dividend to shareholders instead of investing more in the club is actually a good thing?
The money is there for transfers, I don’t think we can dispute that
Other than that I don’t really care where the money goes, it’s their club/business. On the whole, compared to other owners they’ve done fine.
The entire subject bores me to death especially when it keeps being brought up by the same people in random threads
I mean, our previous manager resorted to putting public pressure on the club to make more funds available for two(!) years straight... Those funds never came though.
Our owners put in a couple of hundred million of their own money in an asset that's now worth billions, and of course they still own a massive part of it. It's been brilliant business for them. But instead of making sure we invest the maximum amount possible in the squad or even the stadium in these times where results have been mediocre, they've been taking out even more money.
If you think that equates to our owners 'having done fine' I don't know what to say. Same with saying 'compared to other owners'. Like who, Chelsea's owner? Or City's owners? Or Liverpool's owners? I don't think so.
On a less serious note, I wouldn't want to bore you to an actual death or anything, so apologies for derailing this thread!
My views on Perisic are primarily based on his form in International tournaments for Croatia and I largely liked what I saw.
So,I could see Jose's wants for the player especially with the signing of Lukaku.
What I wasn't particularly fond of was the idea that Martial would've likely been shipped off in the process,permanently or on loan.
The reported fee for Perisic was also far too inflated,especially for his age.I cant blame Inter for that because he was a important figure for them,more so where the ability of star quality in their team ,at that particular time, was lacking.
But the fact that Jose had no back-up plan to Perisic just illustrated his shortsightedness and his lack of versatility in the transfer market.
If Arsenal were offering €35m guaranteed after 6 months this would make sense.
Why would Inter loan for 6 months with no buy obligation though? Surely just do the transfer and Arsenal pay in the summer or put mandatory purchase option in the loan deal?
Not really getting it, no club going to loan a first team player for 6 months surely, leave them wide open for other players to do the same in future?
I look forward to seeing him in the PL, even if it's with Arsenal. I know nothing about him outside of the World Cup and he was brilliant for Croatia.
Spotted in Germany looks like a done deal for Bayern
He will do well there.
Yeah, poor Mourinho was only allowed to spend close to £400mill at United.
Didn't get Perisic though, so what's the point of even living.
Good signing for Bayern. Probably would have done well on the pitch for us as well but the deal to get him there wasnt worth it at all.
pretty meh signing for mighty Bayern.
So Lukaku still doesn't get to play with him
Pretty much a stop gap signing for Bayern till next summer when they go back in for CHO or Sane
Nice reaction twelve years later! You make some great points as well...
Wasn't he average for Dortmund / Wolfsburg?
Good riddance for Inter. He was useless in the last year, bad attitude as well. So he will not be missed.
Was just thinking this. Jose's dream continues to be deferred
Was available on loan.....
For 4.6m i wouldn't have mind having him here, better option than Lingard on the right, and would have introduced a left footed player to the attack.
Mourinho would have bricked Woodward's windows if he would have signed Maguire and Perisic this summer.
Yup, but i doubt Jose would have been willing to give up Lukaku, which would've been a biggest issue than getting in other players he wanted. Also i doubt Maguire and Perisic were players he specifically identified. If the clubs work as previously like under Fergie, they would have been on a list of targets came up by the club, and Jose probably picked out his favorites
Just goes to show how much Inter we’re trying to shaft us with the huge fee they demanded when we were interested
Really pleased that Ed stuck to his guns to make them pay through the nose for Lukaku
I’d of taken him here on loan for a year. Our attack could do with some experience.
You might want to lock this thread considering he's off to Bayern (on loan)
You are having a laugh.
He’s still shite tbf.
Bayern having to fill their quota of ex-Dortmund players now Hummels has gone.
No he isn’t! Not at that loan price especially. Could of done a job for us for a year, whilst we let lingard develop
Incredible player, best crossing in the world
Not bad. Perisic can have world class spells if you can light a fire under his ass and Kovac is perfect for the job. This is a low risk high reward gamble with pretty good odds.
We don’t have any experience in our front 3. It’s very hopeful to expect Martial, Rashford and James to kick on. Lingard is the most senior in the front 3 ffs.
We have a youthful front 3 but they have been at this club for 4 years now. If we brought someone like Perisic he wouldn't start anyway, so he would be stalling the progress of Greenwood, James, Chong. We still also have Sanchez.
Yes we need experienced and good players. We already have plenty of experienced players like Mata, Sanchez. We need good players which Perisic isn't and also he will be one more LW who can play as RW.
Good grief. When will people stop putting their faith in stop-gap 29- and 30-year olds?
It's as if one good year of RVP has convinced people to ignore all experience before and since.
Are Robben and Ribery still there? If so, they can almost count him as a youngster.
He’s had a journeyman career and has always blown hot and cold, could never understand why we were trying to sign him, especially for the fee at the time.
Both gone. Retired
