Too long. We can't reward mediocrity for 3 seasons. He must go. I don't care if he turns into a world class winger. He's been shit for us and he can't even get ahead of Garnacho. I do think there is a player there, but I don't care about potential. I want the output.Felwin wrote: ↑7 months agoHe was really really good in Dortmund. There are no two ways about it. There is 100% a top player in him. Whether we'll see it at United remains to be seen.dozer wrote: ↑7 months agoYou recommended Sancho so highly that I thought he'd be the next Ronaldo. He's been the next Daniel James. Even in Dortmund I couldn't see what was so good about Sancho although I only watched a handful of games. So I was only worried about the jinx at the time and I couldn't comment about his qualities on the pitch. So yes, I'm skeptical of your new recommendation ie Sosa.swampash wrote: ↑7 months ago I hope the scouts, for want of a better name, are keeping an eye on Stuttgart - due for the drop again this season. The problems lie mostly with the club hierarchy, as always, which means there is always a good player hidden in the mix who could be picked up for a song. In previous drops we could have picked up Rüdiger and Pavard for a song. Both went on to prove to be much better players than their presence at Stuttgart suggested. I suspect Sosa might be this year's bargain.
But I agree with your sentiment that we shouldn't go established and buy too few players.
For me he has one more season. One that isn't disrupted in a similar way to how we've seen Rashford reborn. If we're still not sold on him this time next year then it's time to move him on. I have a horrible feeling he'll be class again at his next club though. Probably more a United disease than a Sancho disease.
We can buy an other player with the money we get for him. Otherwise we'll have one fewer player and we need plenty to challenge next season.
