Our starting front 5 will be:
Rashford
Martial
Sancho
Pogba
Bruno
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.

I 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).
I was delighted with the Maguire transfer

He's an alright player that Sancho lad. He isn't proper amazing though. And chances are Utd will make him turn to shit. We've seen it happen before.
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.

Bruno

Our backup front 5 will be:
James
Ighalo
Greenwood
Fred
Mctominay

We still need to bring in another midfielder at a minimum.
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.

If we can play that first choice 5 for 80% minimum of next season we'll have some great fun.

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.'

Maguire did end up playing all the matches which is quite remarkable

We've also seen the opposite happen, especially under a manager who works well with younger players.

Greenwood, Martial, Rashford, and Mctominay have all improved under Ole. There is no reason to believe Sancho will not excel at United.

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.
That's the case for nearly every transfer.

That's because right now only we can pay that fee.
So that's basically what I'm saying. Because we can pay it and nobody else can that should give us wiggle room surely?

I think he's a fantastic player though and it's very exciting to get hin. Just worry we are paying too much for him. It's a huge price tag on his young shoulders after all.

Please we are more high tech than that. We use this new technology called the fax machine.
Trying to remember which cupboard we put the fax machine in.

Even at this time, many thought paying 89m and making him the most expensive player was excessive.

Anyway, let's focus on Sancho.

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.
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.

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?

Weirdness.

For those that have watched him during the previous seasons, is he the solution for our right wing? I only watched his goals/assists this season and he looks amazing. My worry is that a big chunk of his highlights were from the left. I understand interchanging during the game is normal but I’m slightly worried he might be another winger that ends up fighting for the left wing for us. :nervous:

I'd love to see the acquisition happens sooner rather than later.

I'm sure this has been asked and answered before here, but I haven't noticed it. If we brought in Sancho today would he be eligible to help us wrap up EL play this month?

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.
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.

Ousmane Dembele is the direct comparison as he and Sancho played the same position for the same club. He joined Barca for £97m rising to £135m. Obviously he has regressed since but I think Sancho is the bigger talent.

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.

Thanks, I was on my phone and somehow a search of his posts in this thread failed on it.

And I am absolutely delighted with the transfer bojan, very happy and will be well worth the money.

Agree, think it's time the mods stop it. It's puerile to say the least.

You don't get female posters stating that they're off to play with their clitorises
