My favourite is the year my mate drafted his reserve keeper in the 10th round (of 15)

I think it's down to his off field issues with his house getting broken into. He wasn't the same.

Well, he wasn't for the vast majority of last season and had some major brain fart moments as well.

Some? Check his heat maps? Chalk boards for the last 6 months of last season. Lol stats and no eye test etc but he wouldn't get a game for Celtic with those figures.

Form is temporary, class is permanent, etc etc. Guy is a legit top 10 player in the world.

It's slightly different though, maybe I'm reading to much into it but say he and his family don't even get settled and his form stays the same? As soon as the break in happened and he moved into a hotel his overall play took a nose dive.

There is some chatter about 43m from PSG, if we can hold out and get our money back for him at this moment in time I say cut our losses on him and move on.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Selling him after one season would be bad enough, but selling him at a huge loss to a club with more money than sense, a club that paid 50m for Playstation Bob, would be utterly ******ed. That's really the only reason I think these reports might be BS, there's just no reason for us to sell him to an oil club for that price.

Re: English Football 2015/16

They paid around 60m quid for him, right? taking 15 to 20m less that that after one season seems really bad. Even if he has another terrible year, which is think is less that likely, how much value does he lose? In today's environment, he probably still goes for around 30. If he hits, he's a player that Utd. would otherwise struggle to get.

Completely agree. We have to give Markovic some chances in his best position before any decisions are made on his future. If he get's a run of games at ACM or as a wide forward and isn't good enough then fair enough. But we have to give him the chance before a final decision is made.

Re: English Football 2015/16

How good is debauchy as a rb? Not an area they need to improve on (I barely seen him) ?

Who's higher in the list if he was still there..Jenkinson or bellerin?

How close you think bellerin is to becoming a first team player? Like...he did pretty awesome for his first year in the prem.

What type of striker is that guy?

Re: English Football 2015/16

As things stand I think Bellerin/Debuchy/Chambers(although I think Wenger thinks about him as more of a CB than RB)- is plenty when it comes to RB. Hard to tell who is the no1 choice for it given Debuchy missed most of the season due to injuries. Jenkinson is loaned to WHU for another season so he is pretty much out of the picture.

Akpom has the potential to become a complete CF(fast+strong+good with the ball), his setup play lacks a bit compared to Giroud at this point but he makes up for it with his movement. He seems confident and always looks to get into a chance. Ox-Iwobi worked well, with the Ox having some runs and a couple of shots on and off target. Iwobi looks decent as well with creating 3 chances from the left(one of them was converted) and a decent shot which was saved. Not much going on at the back with Martinez having literally nothing to do. Coq-Flamini keeping everyone in check.

More money than sense applies to every top clubs basically, mun ranks higher than us in these last 4 years in the senseless department, it's not even close.

Verratti for 10M covers the splashing on Lavezzi, Cavani and Bob for exemple.

I'm not rating him highly based on this game alone, if you go a few pages back you can clearly see that.(pretty sure you cba as I couldn't be in your place). I hope he progresses well and we can see him this season in the first-team.

True, but also irrelevant. PSG having more money than sense is why it would be ******ed to sell them AdM at a loss. United having more money than sense has no bearing on that fact.

I said if we can hold out and get the money back, snap call. PSG are ******s but they aren't going to pay more than 60m for him.

Di Maria had a disapointing first season and wants to leave, we have leverage, you don't.

that's basically all there is to it imo
