    Gerrard was pretty good at doing the business when everyone else was having the day off. The fact Pogba doesn't do pull of Roy of the Rovers stuff like Gerrard and Robson is one of the reasons he's so criticised.

    Personally think it's a bad comparison. Put a younger David Silva in your team and no one would be criticising him for not doing it singlehandedly. They'd be talking about the team not doing well enough to make use of his ability. Pogba is not exactly silva but I do think he's somewhere in between a silva and your Gerrards and Robsons.

    We really should have cashed in on Pogba after he won the World Cup.

    No way Jose will we ever, ever, ever get £150 million for Pogba - the rest of the world has been seeing what we've been seeing and I'll bet £ 10 to your £ 1 that we don't get even £ 100 million.

    And, yes, he will be replaced by a cheaper, but better-for-us player, who's Danish and currently living in London.

    I agree with the first part. The fact Juve never even bid and Real made such a low offer shows how little anyone else really values him. He's not worth what we'd ask for him.

    We’ll get 100m by virtue of the fact he’s the 4th most marketable player in the world as per marketing statistics. I wouldn’t pay 150 for him but I think he’ll go for 120ish plus a couple of addons

    If you think we are going to let Pogba go for anything less than £150m your as crazy as thinking Eriksen wants to come here.

    You’re fixating on a pie in the sky figure i mentioned. £150mil could be £100mil, could be £80mil.

    The point was in response to a poster thinking whatever will spend will be matched penny for penny on his replacement/replacements. If we should have learnt anything from this summer it is that the Glazers are not in the habit of speculating but accumulating but seeing as it got you so riled, if we get £99.99mil for the guy that won’t all go on a new midfield.

    & if you think replacing Pogba with Eriksen is the answer to our problems then let’s end this here; Pogba/his replacement are far from the worst of our issues. We’re not a quick fix away.

    Also the arrogance of thinking Eriksen is a certainty pretty much sums up the plight this club is in atm, there’s more chance of him playing with Pogba at Real next season imo.

    Think so too. Otherwise we would have seen the Madrid switch happen. Could see him winding his contract down and going for 75-80 mil

    Pogba for 150mill and replacing him with eriksen replacing him is FIFA stuff.
    If eriksen does come to Manchester he’ll be a blue not a red.

    Hey...Come on....You said £ 150 million - not me.

    And I'm not riled - but I'm not always convinced by this diatribe about the Glazers.

    Have we not broken World Records for transfers a few times in the past couple of years - Di Maria, Pogba and just last month a new World Record for a defender ??

    Even Citeh haven't broken World Record fees for an individual player yet.

    So Glazers are hardly penny pinching....

    Still fixated on a speculative figure that I suggested to emphasise a point. If you can tell me the ‘exact’ figure paid for any player down to the penny we can have this argument but I’ve always stated fees are poe in the sky to us fans as we don’t actually know anything.

    I’m unsure what you’re trying to argue here, i said £150mil [as a speculative figure], you suddenly want to bet we won’t get more than £100mil & I’m not interested in the bet.

    We can debate the Glazers all you like but don’t try to fact check me over something we’ll never honestly know. I don’t think we’ll reinvest the Pogba money [when it eventually comes] penny for penny. That’s not diatribe it’s an opinion.

    We’ve just sold a striker for £70mil & bought a defender for £80mil so I have my doubts they’ll replace anyone adequately/directly.

    Also, your Eriksen remark remains a travesty.

    Net spend this year is around £70m, net spend last year around £50m whilst being so far behind city and Liverpool already. That’s less than what we get for being in the premier league never mind everything from sponsorships, tickets etc.

    If they invested any less than this there would be riots eventually.

    The facts are staggering but some fans would rather argue over fictitious transfer values.

    The level of underinvestment & mis-appropriation of funds is unbelievable.

    I’m shocked we’ve mustered 5 points from 12 given the way this squad has been assembled.

    No....You said £ 150 million - not me !!

    However....If you now want to say that was just a specultaive figure - then OK....You could have said £ 25 million or £ 50 million or £ 75 million, but didn't....

    As for the Glazers ( and Fergiesarmy as well ) I don't really consider them as great owners, but not because they're not spending big dollars this year.

    I don't consider them great owners because they're not great football people and the evidence of this is some of the catastrophic and expensive mistakes which they have allowed to happen because they didn't know any better.

    If it was my money, and I'd seen hundreds of millions pissed away on Sanchez, Pogba, Lukaku, Fred, Mkhitaryan, and others over the past five years ; and allowed myself to be conned into accepting Moyes as Manager ; and seeing that OGS is still a huge doubt, then I think I'd keep as much of my money in my pocket as I could until I was certain that I'd eventually got the right people running the company that's eating my money.

    And right now, having been burned by Moyes, by Woodward, by Mourinho and now probably worrying that OGS just might not be the messiah after all, maybe, just maybe, they're thinking twice before writing cheques for over rated and over expensive players who are supposed to provide an instant fix when Citeh seem to ' find ' and buy far better players than us and usually for a lot less money.

    Throw in anything up to a $ 500 million or so which is coming down the road for a stadium upgrade in the next 10 years, and until they can be sure we're making progress and are not just disappearing into a Liverpool style Black Hole for the next 30 years, then until our Saudi billionaire turns up ( if ever ) this might be how it's going to be for another few years.

    Not going to lie, i stopped reading after you again mentioned £150mil.

    I’m done patronising certain members of this forum as its daily task & quite frankly becoming boring.

    I’ve told you more than once, you are a fan [as am I] that has 0 influence/factual knowledge of exact transfer fees but you continue to get emotional over such things.

    There are other posters with the energy to retort your nonsense so please move on & quote them on this piece, we’re done here.

    I'm off to bed - life's too short to waste it trying to understand that what people say is apparently not what they mean....

    The context was nowhere the same, Pogba was loved and valued highly by the fans. It would have been madness
    I couldn't agree more here. Spending money and spending it wisely are two different. We can also go all the way back to when Ronaldo was sold, we never reinvested close to the fee on the squad. Our problems run much deeper than a simple player replacement. We could do with 4-5 new players in the first team just for starters
