You can’t coach his level of decision making, is what I assume @Sparky Rhiwabon is attempting to state. Which is why only Messi (iirc, maybe one or two others) have more G/A’s in the past two domestic seasons.Of course you can coach that, especially when a player is young and developes.
Isn't the Barca wages/revenue the highest in world football and I don't think he's accounted for Sanchez off the books.Still see this, on balance, working out in City's favor
ManYoo pay maximum fee & another high weekly wage for a forward - their wages/revenue ratio will approach 60%, the highest in world football. City get 15% and remain a more balanced squad across the pitch + they won't have to contend with what I believe will eventually be issues of insufficient professionalism/discipline from the expensive player
It's alot of eggs to put in one basket
I know that you were joking but you raised a very pertinent argument. As said, Sancho is a low risk signing in terms of him flopping. He's talented, he's young, he's versatile, he's focused and he's British. Assuming he fails to justify the 120m fee then rest assured that the pro British talent pundits and United's propaganda machine will make sure to protect the boy and highlight his strengths to a fan base which tbh is already heavily pro Sancho.Uhm I was joking mate. Anyway people will bash him and call him all sort of names when he has a bad match. It's the caf, can't help. And that's another reason why it's incredible hard for young players to develop in big clubs. One maybe two bad matches and it's the bench for you.
Sancho seems a pretty ambitious type. It's both good and bad. I don't have doubt in his talent just hope he can cope with the pressure here and doesn't lose his head once he got the big deal signed. Many young stars did though.
Taibi was crucified for making 3 huge mistakes that lead to goals in just 4 matchesADM was our best assist man but he was deemed a flop by most United fans. Most fans considered Pogba as a failure despite being last year's main assist man and top scorer. Taibi was crucified because of 1 mistake while Jones is still here after years of being a parody. Meanwhile the likes of Maguire and Shaw are considered success despite performing way below their price tag.
For this kind of great decision making it takes more than only the player. The whole structure of positions and movements of the entire squad has to be well executed and the players got to have this in their minds. Of course there are moments, especially in the final third on a counter (just to name one example), where its up on the instinct of the player. But also then a player is not alone on the pitch and only structure and plans leads to these situations in the first place. In addition, the player needs advice to a certain extend, so that he is "free" to make his decisions in these boundaries, even in chaotic like counterplays or some similar situations.
Agree this is a pretty low risk signing. But he's really young, a teenager and there's basically nothing you can be sure about a teen's mind.I know that you were joking but you raised a very pertinent argument. As said, Sancho is a low risk signing in terms of him flopping. He's talented, he's young, he's versatile, he's focused and he's British.

The only thing is the wages across the board will go up next season as we have a clause in contracts that they be cut by a percentage when we aren't in the Champions League. Even with that increase, Sanchez, Smalling and possibly Lingard off the books means we're still in a decent position.
He's a Friends fan.
ChristI want to trust you, Ed. I really do. I wish we could turn back the clock to the early days when I was young and optimistic about our life together, but I can't. You've let me down so many times that I just don't believe you any more. This is your last chance or I'm taking the kids and walking away from our life together.
