So it seems Sanchez is injured. I can’t see him playing for united again. Ed did say we are looking to shift him and I would be surprised to see him move to PSG in January.

The Sanchez deal is one which real disappoints me. There is no doubting he is so much ability and that he was one of the top players in the league at arsenal. He has just never found his place in this united team. I think a lot of that is down to style of play and tactics by Jose. You can never fault his work ethic and work rate for the cause. He always leaves everything on the pitch.

I had an interesting conversation with my mate whose a gooner and he said that he thinks Sanchez was in decline in his final season at arsenal. He reckons that arsenal sold at the right time as he thinks Sanchez was completely burnt out due to overplaying during his time there. This did get me thinking that perhaps Sanchez isn’t the player we thought we had bought. I still don’t necessarily believe this though and if he moves to PSG he will regain form.

Although my head says we have to get rid there is still a niggling feeling that we may regret it if we don’t what he can do under a new manager. When Sanchez played centrally against Juve and Bournemouth we looked a far better side. He linked up the play beautifully at times and his mobility, touch and movement took us up a notch from the disasterclass of Lukaku this season. For the life of me I don’t understand why he was dropped. I really wanted to see him given a proper run in the cf position and I’m sure we would have seen glimpses of the Sanchez of old as well as a much better united team.

If he doesn’t play for us again, I wish him well and it’s a shame it hasn’t worked out. There’s a top player there and I hope he turns it on again. But it is imperative that the Woodward learns from this expensive mistake. Never should we give a player that much money and never should we buy a player who doesn’t suit the manager’s vision or style of play. We need a plan and identity and we need to follow it.

Agree park, also did we buy him to stop other interested parties. If city had of signed him I'm sure he would have been better suited to their style of play.

It seems that way Simon. I do believe he would tearing up the league if he was at city right now. You could argue we bought fred for the same reason of stopping city getting him. It’s early days but I’m still not writing fred off. Think there is a player there he just needs time to settle and it doesn’t help he’s come into a team that is performing so poorly and is so unstable. A few midfielders have struggled to adapt to the league such as Keita and Fabinho. Neither are poor players and I expect them to all be a decent in the league.

Alexis sanchez demise is purely down to him. He was automatically given a place in the side when he hadnt earned it and there were two young players playing well in that position.

He was then persevered with in that position when it was clear he was underperforming severely and given every chance by jose to come good. Still was unable to produce any semblance of a good performance.

As for his work ethic i have seen rashford and martial both do a better job of doing their defensive work, most of the time off the ball i see sanchez standing still with his hands on his hips like its everyone elses fault he is playing badly.

He will go down as a just as bad a signing as angel di maria, really poor stuff from someone who was supposed to be an experienced professional showing the likes of martial and rashford what it takes to make it at a top team.

{Ed025's Note - when your on £500,000 a week i suppose its hard to get motivated DSG, it seems to be a chore for him to be playing at the moment and he seems to be sulking every week and not enjoying the games, at arsenal i thought he was fantastic and there is no questioning his ability but his attitude stinks, now whether thats down to the money, the manager or not being the main man i dont know, but one thing is for certain hes a waste of space at the moment mate..

I think we should avoid big reputation players. They always seem to flop. Veron, Bastian, Falcao, Angel di Maria. Unfortunately with Galactico Ed at the helm I can't see it changing.

Never was keen on us signing Alexis, nothing personal at all, but i'll be glad when he leaves. Really feel that City and United signed the wrong players, in Mahrez and Sanchez. Both would of suited the other team more. Oh well, onto the next.

Curse of the No.7 shirt strikes again. Since Ronaldo left Owen, Di Maria, Depay, Sanchez and Valencia have all worn the shirt. The year Valencia wore it was probably his worst at our club (until this season) .

The people who have been successful in the No.7 shirt have either come through the academy and/ or embraced the history and traditions of the club.

It's a special shirt and you need to respect it/ the club if you want to be successful in it.

Or maybe I'm being superstitious. Lol.

Shappy I’m with mate there is definitely a curse on that no 7 shirt 😂. And also on the manager’s position.
