The Sanchez Dilemma – Blue or Red? Integrity or Avarice?

Another thought that passed through my addled brain today......

I still have yet to watch the MNF rant from Neville but it continues to puzzle me. Why go off the deep end?.......unless you felt that without a competitor in the bidding, the rag offer would be seen not as a "to beat our rivals we just HAD to offer stupid money and drop our trousers (again) for an agent. There was just NO other way" but simply for what it was....."we are desperate to keep out moaning manager happy after his recent complaints about being outspent so this is our response".

The emergence of articles about Maureen negotiating a contract extension RIGHT NOW, during a transfer window, weeks after making complaints about how his side is "in transition" and is "not yet a world class team" now has me hugely suspicious.

I think he has somehow leveraged just how far behind they are in the league into his contract talks to put pressure on the board to back him or risk him walking away......and this has created the bid for a player who he thinks can propel them to Champions League success.

Utterly bizarre because they SHOULD be saying "We gave you millions! HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS!! and yet you are 15 points behind Manchester City! City!!! WTF are you playing at? NO you cannot have any more money - make the players you have better......just like the bloke we really wanted to manage our club has done! Idiot. Get out of the boardroom you whinging Twat"

But only in a parallel universe clearly.......

In this reality they said....

"Yes José, anything you want José, just please, PLEASE don't leave us. You can have anything. Anything at all. Another player for £180m? Absolutely. No problem. Contract extension? Double your wages? By all means. Where do we sign? Just don't leave us .....PLEASE. We don't have a clue where to turn if you go. We're DESPERATE"

Tin hats on as the media goes into a rag love in Let the fawning and vomit inducing sycophancy begin. Neil Rag Custis was giving it large on Sky’s Sunday Supplement and has probably to change his underwear every 30 minutes.

Bargain of the Century, Best Deal Ever, Maureen is a Genius

Neil Custis is a typical pub bore wanker and is so far up Maureen’s Arse he’ll pop out of his nose if Maureen sneezes. How can someone SO blatantly biased be a reporter on a national newspaper and expect any credibility? He is like a member of the rag press team ffs.

Oliver Holt gave him what for but in typical gobshite fashion Custis incessantly talked over him and defended Maureen and his “Rich Man’s Stoke” (Oliver Holt) for the ‘functional’ style of play.

Custis accused Holt of doing the same thing (talking over him).
Strange one, this edition, although predictable.
Custis full of contradiction 'I love the NFL, but I can't watch the Superbowl as it goes on too long', and the look on Holt's face over the rounders/baseball exchange was priceless.

Custis needs to be careful with them salty tears, have you ever seen what salt does to slugs?

What Custis was saying about City and paying OTT money, was quite right, but in those years we were playing catch-up and no-one has mentioned that.

However rumours abound on UEFA changing the FFP goalposts again.

The 3rd guy tried to but was (predictably) talked over/interrupted by Custis - exactly the sort of pub bore attitude that I was referring to earlier - never allow an opposing view to be expressed completely; never let the other person finish a sentence before interrupting and above all never concede that your interlocutor may actually have a valid point.

Yep, 100% about right from the Cutter article, we snubbed Sanchez, who broke his word.

Excellent article Buzz, Thanks for posting.

Good to see Martin Keown sticking to his guns and calling Sanchez out.

http://www.caughtoffside.com/2018/01/26/alexis-sanchez-blasted-agai...

Utterly sickened by the sycophancy of the BBC this morning as they banged on about Sanchez’s ‘MotM performance’ last night, how he set up (? Did he? I didn’t watch) 2 goals and was subbed mins.......... on and on and on they waxed on the radio 5 live sports bulletins.

Of course he was the BBC Man of the match, inevitable as they were televising the game - bound to happen. I should have put money on it

Meanwhile this was conveniently buried deep down the page.

"Alexis Sanchez: Manchester United forward will have to explain to anti-doping testers"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42830532

Can't have this news spoiling the narrative now can we.

Had this been a City player it would have be emblazoned across the top of the page with bells and whistles just as the time last season when a scheduling change resulted in an anti-doping visit being missed. Then the BBC went LARGE on the issue. Because it is the Golden Boy they have minimised the matter and played it down.

Yes it should have been made more public I agree but of course nothing will come of it.

Well I think this Sanchez thing has really gotten under Gary’s skin. He just can’t let it drop can he? Even wakes up on a Sunday morning thinking and tweeting about it ffs.

“Morning. On the Sanchez deal “ people “should know that the wages are not important . It’s the cost of the overall package . All clubs will depreciate a player over the course of his contract against the total of fee and wage. The fee is low relatively so it works out a good deal”
6:58 AM - Jan 16, 2018

And.....

“60m fee last summer from City and 290k a week over 4 years = circa 120m

Depreciate 30m a year

Now to United / Chelsea 35m fee 5m to agent plus 350k wages 3.5 years = circa 105m

Depreciate 30m a year

Why is it too expensive now for City when it wasn’t 5 months ago?”
7:09 AM - Jan 16, 2018

Why, methinks the ex rag is a tad bitter to be getting his knickers in a twist still

....ending up with this......

“If City sign Laporte they will have spent 100m more than anyone won’t they ? Im not sure why City are peddling this stuff... ”

He just doesn’t get it does he?
