SCHWEINSTEIGER TO THE 'RAGS'

31 years old on 1st August. Fee of around £14 million and wages around £150K per week. 3 year deal.

Could be a good bit of business. Has he got the legs for the Premiership ?

Thoughts anyone ?

He's a world cup winner and a key player in the German Bundes League. Major player behind Munich's success for the past 10 years or so. Not too expensive either when compared to a few others. Only just 31 in August so still got 2-3 years in the tank.

Suppose it could go either way. Let's see how he fairs away to Stoke on a cold Wednesday in mid-winter.

Put it another way - if we'd signed him we'd be saying it was the most awesome piece of transfer dealing ever - so it therefore follows that the rags have done a nice piece of business.

Seems like a marriage made in heaven. The perfect foil of Elbows Fellaini. He will smash people in the face whilst Pigsticker does the enforcing round the ankles.

A step up for him from the German rags to the proper ones.
Wonder why Munich are happy to let him go? Not in the habit of letting their best players leave

He really struggled for form last season following injury, perhaps Bayern feel his best days are behind him so are cashing in while they can.

What's interesting about this is the fee he went for considering what some thought we should've been able to command for Yaya when it looked like he was on his way.

Anyhoo, what's this doing in City Chat?

That was my first thought as well, but managed to restrain myself for once. It's too quiet on here to worry about at the moment :sad:

Bayern Munich played 52 competitive games last season over four competitions. About 30% of those were useless as they won the league easily.

The rags will be expected to care about the FA Cup and Capital One Cup this season, so you can expect at least 48 games if you include them in the group stage of the Champions League (includes the two games for the play-off).

I think it's a bad move for them but a great move for everyone else.

Possibly but put another way the media would be saying he's past it, he's just here for one final payday etc. if he'd signed for us, as opposed to them praising the transfer because he's gone to the rags

They'll get a few decent seasons out of him. He's a class act. he's played roughly the same number of games for the past few years now. They won't play him in their 'easy' games - away to Leicester (or rather Leicester's successors) and such like. The home games against the newly promoted or the bottom teams who roll over at the toilet. They trundle him out for the biggish and tight games but drop him from the early rounds of the cups. He'll get 25ish games under his belt for 2-3 seasons no doubt.

BD's right though. If we'd bought him the media would have been all over it like a rash with the 'last pay-day' mercenary analogies.

It was a constant refrain from the media types last season about how old the City squad was, how many players were over or approaching the dreaded 30 (oh for those days ......now a distant speck in my rear view mirror!)........so I am quite with the view expressed by others that this deal is all about the spin:-

Sign for City - last pay day mercenary, only going for the money, just adds to an already aging squad......

Signs for the rags.......great piece of business, excellent player, world cup winner, adds quality to the midfield (his age regarded as irrelevant)

Oh for some plain unbiased balanced reporting.

There I go again :ha-ha: Living in a fantasy world :loon:
