There was one poster crying in another thread that Sancho should be paid a visit by Southgate to explain his exclusion from the squad.Smith Rowe has had a much better season than Sancho overall, 9 goals in the premier league compared to Sancho's 3, and just like Grealish he can also play in a central role which gives Southgate more tactical options. Grealish's all around game is more polished as you'd expect since he's a lot more experienced so it's not at all surprising that Southgate prefers the more seasoned player. United players don't have a divine right to be in the england squad, Sancho has been poor most of the season so he's got nothing to complain about. He hasn't had a better season than either Smith Rowe or Grealish. It's the same juvenile crying everytime the england squad is announced and a particular united player isn't in there. It used to be AWB that people were crying about not being in there, despite the protestations of the red tinted spec wearers Southgate was spot on. The people who complained about it at the time won't come on here and admit they were wrong though.
Honestly it's embarrassing the entitlement and overrating of our own players. Sancho has proven fook all this season, no match winning world class performances has he put out. The likes of Saka, Kulusevski, Harvey Barnes, Mahrez Foden,Luiz Diaz and Elanga have put this guy's performances to shame.
Sancho isn't any where close to being the best winger in England let alone in europe/the world
People just eager to blow their load when they see him do some neat link up play and do a nice one two and shift past a player trying desperately trying to convince themselves that they are seeing a world class player. It doesn't matter if it's against low quality opposition, it doesn't matter if it's only every other fortnight that he shows up. It doesn't matter if he shows up for only 45 mins in one game then disappears for the rest of the match, these fans just want the hype to be real.
Marcus rashford tracked back against Tottenham and worked harder then he usually does and he recieved praise for his work rate even though he did nothing worth of note besides be a passenger. That's how low our standards are, so I'm not suprised when we have finally have traditional winger, play a pass instead of shooting at the first sight of goal, that they want to believe they are seeing something special. Maybe some of you want to see Prime Valencia no nonsense effective player who combined character, skill, dedication and consistency to his game
Any objective observer without red tinted glasses can see that the majority of the times Sancho''s been inconsistent, lethargic, slow and predictable to the point where all a defender has had to do is stand their ground wait for him to do one of his basic show pony tricks and then stick a leg out to nick the ball off him or he decides to pass it backwards or sideways when his marker is not falling for it.
Dortmund blew our backs right in when they got 75million for him and then I find out we're paying him 350k per week. We got conned by both the club and his agent who are laughing all the way to bank.
There's a reason why Tuchel, Pep, Klopp and Southgate wanted nothing to do with him. Chelsea, City and Pool could have easily got him from Dortmund but their scouts did their job properly and didn't allow themselves to fall victim to social media hype and trendy nike adverts
I'll give Sancho credit, he's a world class social media star and he's world class on video games like fifa and Football Manager. However some fans can't seem to differentiate between fantasy and reality and the lines get blurred believing the sancho that performs magnificently on their game is thee same sancho they see in real life
I mean people want to talk about this guy's ceiling. Let me tell you his ceiling is about as high as a bungalow. We've seen these types of players before will look fantastic and show up in dead rubber games against farmers and sunday league level championship players when there is no pressure but overall, will lack the consistency. and the capacity to be a match winner/difference makers when it matters most in the games that matter. We've seen it with players like Dan James, Obertan, , Depay, Jessie Lingard and most recently Rashford. Fans trying to will and hype players into being future world class on the back of them simply playing for United while the rest of world sees them for what they are
Hell even Mikitarayn showed a whole lot more talent and end product whilst here and he also destroyed the Bundesliga yet in the long run couldn't hack it consistently in the prem. And I remember the excuses for why he went missing, people said he needed an arm around your shoulder type manager, Mourinho was too mean and didn't know how to use him. Same bs excuses used for our current players. It's everyone else's fault that they're mediocre except the players themselves.
