When it was £37m.

However, why let something silly like the actual amounts get in the way


And Pogba actually cost the filth £121M, but they removed the agent's fees(which the filth paid), got it down to £93M and then for some reason now report it as £89M.


Has Paul Pogba Pogba ran a game for the rags yet. Yesterday you would have expected a player of that price to run the show...


He ran through and fluffed a fresh air shot in the dying minutes to win the game at the weekend that's about as close as I can remember.

Pogba was absolute dogs. Embarrasing price tag compared to the like of Sane, Sterling, Aguero, Jesus etc etc etc

And his agent fee being higher than Gundogan transfer fee, granted he has missed most of season injured but would argue he has had more good games in the few he played than the dabbing dick has had all season.

As for Sané, an absolute snip at £37 million. The lad is going to be sensational.


Where does 200m come from?

£90+ million fee to Juve.
£27 million fee to agent.
5 year contract at £17.5 million a year (plus bonuses).


Oh yes, wages. Don't forget sane gets paid as well. Probably not 17.5 million a year though

amazing body of work, espec given the late start to his season. there were other highlights that could have been included. i remember in his 1st or 2nd appearance for us, he caught the eye with a little shoulder drop to ghost past a defender. pure class.

Isn't that part of his game, not allowing oppo players to know what he is going to do?

Regardless, he's the dogs.

sure. but im just referring to how he all too often ends a great run/move by dribbling into his opponent or taking one touch too many having a heavy touch. like i said, if he can rein that in and realize that yes his pace his a huge weapon but it doesnt always have to use it he will be so, so good.

It's getting to the stage now where you expect a goal or an assist in every game he plays. Same goes for Sterling. The opposition must have headaches trying to work out how to stop them

Not worried in the slightest. I will leave knee jerk thinking to others.

One game into the season!!!

I think it would be 'knee jerk' SB, if you'd mounted a (premature) criticism of Sané, which you most definitely didn't.

Being worried or concerned for the player is simply that.

Class will always tell and Sané is nothing if not classy, something that Pep will be more than well aware of, so don't be unduly anxious.

The game was crying out for him to enter the Fray and run at defenders. The proceedings altered after he came on. I was underwhelmed by him early last season but he blossomed into a magnificent player for us.
I have a lot of hope for him.

Forget about preseason.

What did he play on Saturday 20 odd minutes or something. No not worried at all. Most of them looked a little rusty.
In fact Sane should have been brought on much earlier in the game. Against bus parkers we need more attack orientated wing backs as opposed to defensive wing backs.
Sane has the ability to beat players Danilo does not provide the same threat.

Would we have liked to see more of Sane on Saturday? Yes

Might he have been carrying a small niggle and/or not had as much of a pre season as Danilo and a limited run late on in the game was as much as could've been expected? Who knows.

We have bigger fish to fry than Brighton this season. Pep put out a team he thought could beat Brighton. We did. Comfortably as it goes. I very much doubt we will see the same starting XI in the next game. Sane may well have a bigger role in that game.

Over the course of the season I expect him to feature a lot and to have a huge impact. Let's not forget he is still only 21 and still very much learning and feeling his way in the game and our set up in particular.

The thing that disappointed me the most was Danilo's reluctance to use his left foot and go on the outside as he kept checking back on to his stronger right foot. This was a bit of a let down bearing in mind that he had looked quite direct in the pre-season games. Just a mild criticism as I thought that we stuck to the task well and we will positively murder some teams this season.

The most worrying thing for me is that the current system doesnt really have a place for him, or even a place that gets the best from him. He isnt a left wing back he is wasted there.

then the goat was fed by neville,
silly boy should know for sure,
feed the goat and he will score!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

give it a rest please!

three points in the bag. That really is all that matters.

Pep is seriously in need of some dress sense. He looks like a polytechnic tutor .
