Ah, OK.Hendo missed a penalty for the poms in a friendly
Wow. Poor guy. Pretty shoddy way to treat a new signing?He was injured but United had him doped up on pain killers so he was available for the match day squads (barely played him anyway?). His injury got worse so the Dutch medical team ruled him out and sent him home to get treatment.
Was actually going to ask if this had been done yet. Is Bild a respected source? Thought your lot would've wrapped this up straight away as it's clear what Dortmund want.
The Guardian reporting that Sancho will be on £350k a week, roughly £90m over a 5-year deal. Not to take into account that he'll get a bump within 3 years of that deal. That's £150k a week more than what Liverpool's top earners are on. And he's only 21 - just absurd.Was actually going to ask if this had been done yet. Is Bild a respected source?

In short. No.The Guardian reporting that Sancho will be on £350k a week, roughly £90m over a 5-year deal. Not to take into account that he'll get a bump within 3 years of that deal. That's £150k a week more than what Liverpool's top earners are on. And he's only 21 - just absurd.
Decent player like but that's fricken insane. Are these numbers right?
You know your football!Personal terms have been agreed with Sancho, agent fees were agreed today after being a major issue last year. They want 90 million paid over 4 years, we are offering 70-75 million over 5 years according to the most reputable sources. However, it seems like all parties are desperate to get this over with quickly.
Honestly, the signing makes me nervous. Sancho is a genuine world class talent, and based on his output he is one of the best in the world in his position, however, I have concerns about him needing an overlapping fullback to play with which we dont have.
We have a glaring void on the right, and whilst Sancho will start games in that position, his play style sees him dragged centrally more often, playing in that pocket between the opposition left back and centre back, for this to be successful he needs an attacking fullback to then stretch the defence out and give Sancho more room to manoeuvre. Whilst Wan-Bissaka has improved his attacking play considerably over the past season, I still dont think he is the best fit for a Sancho type player. This may explain why we are so keen on Trippier.
This has been proven in Sancho's form, his best spell came when he had Hakimi overlapping him at dortmund, who is arguably the best wingback in the world now at Inter.
I think Sancho will suit the way Ole likes to play, we play with interchanging forwards, which will allow for Sancho to change flanks and pick his spots. We’ve been one of the highest scoring teams under Ole, I think his biggest test is sorting out the midfield.You know your football!
At the end of the day, he's a class player. Really is. I'm sure you'll add players that improve you such as Trippier.
Once you get him, then you worry about the rest I guess.
My concern is whether Ole is good enough to be able to get the best out of him, and to set up the team according to his strengths etc.
