And Yes Sancho, hugely overrated by CAF and overpriced by Dortmund.
It wouldn’t be hard for both transfers to be better the other way round.Also, bit of an dissenting take, but part of me still would have liked to see Morata at United.
I was actually a little gutted that we opted for Lukaku over him and genuinely felt he would have suited us better than Chelsea. In fact it seems both the Lukaku and Morata transfers were the wrong way round. Morata also seemed more keen to move us too (that premature red hair dye ).
Not under Mourinho, imagine him being used as a target man.It wouldn’t be hard for both transfers to be better the other way round.
what a wretched choice Chelsea and us had that summer.
I agree Morata would have been a better fit at United.
as it turns out, an appalling use of circa £150m.
Our fans doing what they do best, comparing us with other teams. Xhaka wasn't hyped until Arsenal were about to sign him, similar to what our fans are doing for Partey. Regret? Thiago. In 10 mins today, did you see how good he was?Xhaka*. I remember RedCafe telling me that he was one of the best midfielders in Europe.
* This could be applied to a whole host of midfielders who turned out to be terrible.
I’m clinging to the hope Thiago will have a similar impact...as unlikely as that is.Arshavin, Deco and Robinho were all a bit shit really but I have super vague memories of Redcafe meltdowns when we were linked and didn't sign them way back before I was a member and just poked my head in. Could be imagining that but I was glad at the time and I'm glad now.
there’s usually a meltdown when any of our rivals sign a player we’ve heard of.Arshavin, Deco and Robinho were all a bit shit really but I have super vague memories of Redcafe meltdowns when we were linked and didn't sign them way back before I was a member and just poked my head in.

He would still have gone down the same route. I recall when we were linked to him and he was asked about Manchester being too dull for him, and he replied that he could take a chopper to London for the night life.Ronaldinho is my biggest regret not sign him at United. Maybe here, he could have lasted longer on top level (less partying environment than Barcelona)...or got depressed.
