He's done, finished, doesn't fancy it
Time to take him to the shed
What's even more incredulous is that a big club with 'ambitions' has retained someone so unreliable. He has surely got to be finished at United, he shouldn't even be getting a squad place let alone on the bench.
I actually wouldn't be surprised if he stayed such is the dire state we're in. He's our only permanent number 9. If they let him go, and they should, we'll probably have to keep Weghorst on - or vice versa. They might both stay. That wouldn't surprise me either.fat maradona wrote: ↑9 months agoWhat's even more incredulous is that a big club with 'ambitions' has retained someone so unreliable.

With you 100%. I know some of you here don't like excusing players too much but Sancho has had a bizarre first two seasons if we're being honest.swampash wrote: ↑9 months ago I still hope bman that Sancho will still come good - he just needs to be played on the right, rather than on the left. He was always more effective in more of an 'inside right' position - if such a thing can be said to exist in the modern game.
Martial and Maguire I'd let go for free - both totally useless.
Very fair analysis. Mata is a decent enough comparison but he always had more of an eye for goal I'd say. Sancho is almost purely a link player.bman2 wrote: ↑9 months ago Good points Felwin. But that’s why I’ve said before that Sancho seems a lot like Mata. Tidy, intelligent, slow. If you can’t dribble past a defender, there’s just not a lot of use for you in a wider position in the PL.
I wish I could remember who it was, but during our big Sancho transfer drama, I remember one pundit saying very explicitly that they thought Sancho was overrated because he didn’t have the speed to get past PL defenders, and that he’d get found out if he came to the Prem. I think that’s exactly what was happened. I even recall the same pundit saying that in that situation, the player would have to buckle down and try to learn new tricks, try to learn some way to get over the obstacle of quality defending. It seems like that’s where Sancho failed, and maybe had a bit of crisis of confidence instead.
In contrast, I can see Antony working hard constantly. He also has to add to his game to really shine against PL defenders, but you can see him working it, he doesn’t give up. I think he’s much more likely to break through next season than Sancho.
But I totally agree that joining the disaster clown show that was United last season was the worst situation the lad could have put himself in. Antony managed to avoid that.
I don’t have any opinion at all on Mount, I haven’t seen enough of him.
