I was delighted with the Maguire transferI don't think even Maguire's fans thought he deserves 80m. It's not criticizing him or anything it's just stating an obvious fact that's all. If we ever overpay for one play, Sancho is the one, he deserves it more than the 2 players he mentioned (Pogba and Maguire).
There isn't a single player that has regressed under Ole. You could perhaps sight De Gea and Lingard but theyre probably just where they were before Ole came in. The most promising thing about Ole's tenure so far has been the improvements we've seen to a number of players throughout the squad over the course of the season.
The difference in class for next season versus this one is huge though. 3 of that second list would have been starting every week, with Greenwood only becoming a legitimate starter inthe last couple of months.Our starting front 5 will be:
Our backup front 5 will be:
We still need to bring in another midfielder at a minimum.
Pogba was one of the best players in the world when signed at 23. How you think Sancho 'deserves' it more is bewildering. We are at the disposal of the market forces, it's precious little to do with 'deserve.'I don't think even Maguire's fans thought he deserves 80m.

We've also seen the opposite happen, especially under a manager who works well with younger players.
That's the case for nearly every transfer.Remains to be seen whether he lives up to this huge price tag. Let's hope he does.
Nobody but us would pay that fee would they so that says its not the best value. Same for Maguire. Which other club would have paid 80 to 85m for him.
He's a literal child and we will bring him along the same way we did with giggs. We don't want to overplay teens and have their career end at 31.Sancho or not, it’s difficult to believe Mason Greenwood will not be a part of our STARTING XI going forward, considering his stats, development trajectory and potential.
So that's basically what I'm saying. Because we can pay it and nobody else can that should give us wiggle room surely?That's because right now only we can pay that fee.
Even at this time, many thought paying 89m and making him the most expensive player was excessive.Pogba was one of the best players in the world when signed at 23.

Maguire did end up playing all the matches which is quite remarkable
No one said anything about what he achieved, its his plans going forward that were the issue. If you dont think there was any issue with his team building then we have nothing to discuss.Yeah, he won 2 trophies with us, the monster, and got us into the Champions League for 2 of the 3 seasons he was here. I still have nightmares about him and need to see a shrink.
We definitely overpaid for Maguire and you can make a case for it with Pogba but I think we've done quite well out of this one. Especially when you consider players like Coutinho, Griezmann, Hazard and Joao Felix all went for similar amounts or more.I am gobsmacked we are paying 120m for him, installments or not. Happy to admit I called it wrong. I wasn't the only one though.
He's a very good player also but not sure he's worth that much. Feel like we do pay too much for most of our players. Pogba, Maguire and now Sancho.
Thanks, I was on my phone and somehow a search of his posts in this thread failed on it.I am a big fan of yours prof, what’s your verdict on this transfer?
Anyway onto your friend nou camp.
Did you not watch the news @VP89?
It’s strange as from three months period he went from saying just Sancho would do to saying we shouldn’t splash that on one player, but 3 or 4.
Agree, think it's time the mods stop it. It's puerile to say the least.Why do people feel the need to not only masturbate at the thought of United signing Sancho, but broadcast said event to anyone who cares to listen?
