If it is indeed true that both City and United are in for Sanchez it will be very interesting to see how the saga turns out. Less than 10 years ago it was a no brainer, when United came calling you signed up.

As for Sanchez himself he is at an age were he would like to be playing every week and the competition at City is a lot tougher than United for those spots which would be another reason to join United.

Finally financially both clubs would be able to offer the same package, so there should be no real problems in that area. Yes he may get a PL title this year at City but is that guaranteed for the lifespan of his contract? Both clubs in my opinion should be vying for titles each year.

It will give an interesting indication as to whether the noisy neighbours have now taken over the street.

If citeh sign Sanchez, that won't mean they've taken over. They need about another 20 Premier League titles, a few Champions League titles, a few Fa Cups, and few League cups. Give your head a wobble.

This has agents/ Arsenal written all over it to get the most cash in this window or he goes for zip. He is a class act but I think we all ready have Ozil so this Sanchez story may be a smoke screen 😆😆.

City have taken over already. 5 years ago when both teams were after the same player City was the preference, now it's virtually guaranteed that City would be chosen over Utd.

They have a better squad of players, a better manager, more stylish/ enjoyable football. The only players choosing City of Utd are those that have Utd in their heart or something other than a better career path being their priority.

This isn't an Anti-Utd post it's just stating things as I see them unfortunately. Football is very short term now, harking back to previous years is pointless. We have to accept City are a better proposition, but hopefully we can get back to where we belong, it's a hard slog though as we seem to be falling further behind imo.

Wasn’t it 5 years ago we took RVP from under their blue noses?

I would postulate our global reach is only comparable to that of Real and Barcelona. Therefore, for any player with plans to market themselves worldwide (which sadly I imagine is a most of the top players), we are still an attractive proposition.

"We're all doomed"- I blame Private Frazer 😆😆.

It's obvious that we've fallen further behind City, but the good side is that we may have moved ahead of all the others. If that's the case then we should be able to attract decent enough players to move ahead. The way things are right now, though all other conditions being equal, City and Pep will be a more attractive proposition.

City are 18 years away from where we are.

GDS2 - one example (probably more to do with SAF than anything else) . Are you saying my point is wrong, or are you just nit picking for the crack!

12 Jan 2018 00:32:17
Oh and RVP was 6 years ago I believe, hah.

12 Jan 2018 01:47:43
RVP was a short term purchase who had one good season for us. I would rather we'd bought someone like Silva. The only reason it was a good transfer was because SAF managed to make it work but it left the team with a conflict between RVP and Rooney when Moyes took over, and a midfield populated by top stars like Cleverley.

Good post Shawthing, did we not step back from signing lewandowski to sign RVP? I would have rather signed Lewandowski. He has kept banging them in season after season where as RVP had one good season, got moody went off the boil and disappeared over the horizon.

Haven’t we seen a lot of criticism of short term/ stop gap signings on this site? That is exactly what RVP was. Quality player, but more known for long spells out injured.

Modern players do not care about club history and how many trophies you have won. They care about the here and now. What’s the climate like, how much will I get paid, what sort of tax dodges are available and lastly what’s the style of play/ whose the manager.

On that basis, utd and city are tied on climate, cites have far far deeper oil lined pockets than we have, can’t comment on the tax dodges available, their style of play is light years ahead and their manager is not known for being grumpy and criticising his player in the media.

Unfortunately I think we are second choice for most modern players.

Isn’t Sanchez a united fan growing up?
