Good for him, just echoing the opinions of people who watch him every week rather than parroting goal contributions and flawed expected stats.

I'm sure the 20 penalties helped.
Watching someone every week isnt exactly the perfect model either. We should know that by some of our lots opinions on Salah.

To say he hasnt improved, when he has quite clearly improved in every way, is silly. He might be overrated but he has improved. Whther that is down to OGS or just age, is anyones guess from a distance.

Not really, his stats in 15/16 were pretty good actually, better than this seasons if you ignore the copious amounts of refereeing help.

Rashford has incredible pace, great technique and the ability to beat a man. You can split hairs over whether or not he has improved in the 4 years since he's made his debut as an 18 year old, but he should be better than he is with his raw attributes.

He's going to be one of the best players in the world, if not the best. We missed out on him and there's nothing good about him going to United. Saying otherwise is just kidding yourself.
Its all got a "can't spend that much on this kid Cristiano Ronaldo, let's spend a little less on this proven commodity Harry Kewell" feel to it but think he will always be in Mbappes shadow due to similar ages. Although English media will try and disproportionately hype him being English playing for United, after all they did it with Rooney, Scholes and the Welsh Giggs all of which had better players at other clubs within the league and weren't given half as much hype abroad.

Sancho is a very good player, no doubt about it. If the deal goes through, shame he's going there. They will win a lot of games and score a lot of goals next season, but unless they sort out the defense they won't challenge for the title, but should comfortably be top four.

Unfortunately.
I think they may well challenge for the title, particularly if they continue earning penalties at the rate they do.

We are yet to see how our squad handle being league champions, and we don't know yet how City's new signings settle either.

It will be so funny if they refuse to pay for Sancho and play hard ball and then go around to try to buy some other flavour of the week and the clubs knowing they have money to spend from not buying Sancho, plays hard ball with them, and in the end on the last day of the window, ends up paying the full 100mil in the end and waste more time like they had done with Bruno and Maguire :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

Standard Woodward would be to balk at paying 100 million for him, then on the last day of the window pay 110 for Grealish.

As others have noted, this is a carbon copy of their approach to buy Maguire and Fernandes. In the end, they will pay what the selling club ask and they will get what they need. Everyone's happy.
I love how it went from "Maguire will be our van Dijk and fix our defensive problems" to "we need another CB to partner Maguire (because he's not anywhere near as good as van Dijk)." :ROFLMAO:
