    “Puppy, the proof is in the pudding and every time I’ve seen him play he’s looked a bit Angel Delight, Emperor’s New Clothes Flavor. ”

    Always that way with transfers Chucky look at Torres to Chelsea he looked like a guaranteed goalscorer you just never know how they will all work out I suspect Fernandes has probably suprised even United a bit on a positive basis since his signing.

    No agreed Chucky. He could easily flop. Any signing could. But you’d hope the fact he’s shown in the Champions League that he seemingly has the quality required to succeed at the top, the risk of him flopping is less than other signings would be. But you never know. We got Daniel James last season as a very low risk signing and he pretty much flopped. You can’t just keep trying to buy those low risk ones. Sometimes, it’s worth investing that bit more and minimising the risk.

    Agree too about Bale. Wasn’t suggesting he should be the yardstick. He was simply an example of the extreme.

    Saw Sancho (or BaleII, considering the cash!) in the CL against the Spuds… and see previous comment. Maybe it was a bad night, dunno, but like I said, from what I’ve seen rather than heard, I’d be a bit annoyed if my team splashed that wedge for him.

    Don’t know why you’re complaining about James, he falls over as good as anybody else in a red shirt! 🙂

    Kane was crap against Utd Chucky ?. Doesn’t make him a bad player. No, as I said he could absolutely flop but whenever I’ve seen him in the CL, he’s been the best player on the park. Hopefully, we’ll see next season though just how good he is.

    When you look at the other recent players to have gone for over £100mil in Dembele and Coutinho, I’d have Sancho over any of them any day.

    Knew you wouldn’t resist getting a dig in about Utd players diving though ? Glass houses and all that!

    It’s our little running joke, Sweddy, until it reaches the peno box and then falls over… 🙂

    They all do it mate, your boys, my boys, Franks’ boys, the list is literally endless!

    As I said, the proof is in the pudding, we’ll see him falling over on a pitch near you soon…

    I am more than surprised the Ed finds it necessary to comment on E Mails he or anybody else know nothing about. If they have them and they are so damming where are they? The key word is evidence and what it contains. Ed I suspect you are pre judging a situation and as an Ed I would expect an impartial view until a conclusion is at hand.

    Brian, I’m only going by what the Guardian reported and linked to the source. It’s there if you want to read it. Could it be a load of rubbish? Of course, but I’m not just making things up. I’m commenting on a news story from a reputable news source.

    Fair comments though Brian, as always.

    Eds….but it is your wording. ” with yet more dodgy emails emerging this week which the UK media seem to not want to make a thing of. You have to wonder why.” A little provocative i would say

    Two things become clear. “dodgy” decribes something not right with/without evidence and putting the perceived wrong back in Citys court.

    “themUK media did not want…..etc etc. well the Guardian did

    I remember when that paper was printed in Manchester as The Manchester Guardian and was a decent paper. I would not put my fish and chips in it now

    Ed, I know you are in the difficultposition as Ed of a forum but let us keep comments impartial and fair until we all know facts not some “dodgy” articles. If Der Spiegel has the evidence and the facts…bring it on…what are they waiting for????

    The exposure of more e mails add to the question marks against City but I believe they are all or predominantly all fall outside of UEFA’s 5 year cut off for pursuing cases.

    I would agree with Ed that Sancho is probably the best young attacker in Europe bar Mbappe (we all know TAA is THE best youngster!). In the league he got 17 goals and 16 assists from 32 appearances (25 starts). That is pretty impressive. I saw a bit of him last year in his breakout season and he kept the more experienced Pulisic on the bench. He was explosive, he just ran past everyone. A few question marks about his attitude when he was dropped for returning late from England duty and previously being late for training. The usual stuff with many talented players.

    Ed-You really rate Sancho ahead of J.Felix? Much rather we test AM if they are willing to sell him.

    I mean it’s a lot of money but they don’t need to sell so why would/should they ask for any less than that. If you want to buy from within the PL, you pay a premium. That’s to be expected now that PL clubs are all stupidly rich. This isn’t the Bundesliga or Ligue 1 where the top sides can just hoover up the domestic talent.

    Mav, yeah definitely rate him above Felix, 100%. Besides, how much would they want for Felix? He cost them £122mil so we’d probably have to go above £200mil. Utd can’t go that high at the best of times, never mind in a pandemic.

    Ed, yep you’re right the selling Club set the price and over £80m for Chilwell suggests that Leicester don’t want to sell him. Personally at that sort of price I hope Chelsea don’t go anywhere near Chilwell.

    “Manchester United could reportedly strike an agreement with Lille to sign defender Gabriel Magalhaes “in the next few days” after submitting a better offer than their rivals.

    Gabriel is a target for several clubs across Europe this summer, including Everton and Napoli.”
