Big waste of money

I said it early on in the season that sancho was a big waste of money and I stick by it. I just felt this guy would fail and for me he has shown nothing. Even Elanga has looked more impressive and less in the deep end than him. Sancho doesn’t have much pace, looks weak and was a pointless signing especially when we were so desperate for a midfielder! 70m would of been better spent on a midfielder or 2. He won’t make it under any manager for us. Should be sold along with Maguire, awb and Donny, martial etc

Tbh I liked the look of elanga. Decent touch, speed and power and if used well could be moulded into a good player. I’d rather see him then sancho. 70m on sancho and we very pointless and will prove another disaster signing. It’s even worse than Sanchez
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Haven't really noticed Sancho this year when he's played but thought elanga played well when he was on. Academy player?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah he's come through the academy. Got a couple of opportunities towards the end of last season and impressed and has continued to do so this season when given the chance too.

Give it time and I'm sure we can break his spirit and have him spending the last 60 minutes of games jogging and scowling.

Do any of the midfielders or attackers look good for us at the moment? Let alone 21 year olds who have just joined. Seasoned players look awful too.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Lmao. Elanga did.

Anyway he needs to get in the gym as well as play regularly. And for heaven's sake in the right side
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Has he produced a goal or assist? Elanga has been our only half decent attacker in the past 2 games? How the mighty have fallen. No one else in attack looks good at all.

Sancho is an excellent player signed by a club that didn't have a plan how to use him and is presently in disarray.

I see SE85's superstitions now consist of 'used to play in Germany' as well as South Americans. Isn't it curious that clubs that are good at recruitment seem to have a much better success rate signing South Americans and players from the Bundesliga? (SE85 would have been hiding behind the sofa if we had signed Firmino.)
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Strange post.

Havertz Werner and Sancho have all really struggled. I don't think any of them are poor players though. That league clearly isn't very strong right now.

And I'm certainly not against signing Bundesliga based players either.

Such a bitter poster.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Apologies SE85, when skimming through I somehow got it in my head you wrote the OP. Your comment kind of echoed it on the Bundesliga's weakness but didn't warrant the response I wrote.

Sorry RR but whether we had a plan for Sancho or not, he cannot control a football, he looks slow, he looks weak, doesn’t cover his full back, cannot beat a full back, doesn’t make runs in behind or make space, cannot get a shot off.

Just basic things you expect from a £70m winger on an individual, regardless of fitting into a team. I can’t think of a single thing he has excelled at since signing.

Elanga? No. Doesn't mean he was not our best attacker yesterday. Very sad to be honest.

I think Greenwood needs a goal, but his approach to finding it is direct but the wrong one.

Honest assessment

COMMENT ON THIS ARTICLE
Of the squad:

Front 3 are good enough and need to improve but 23 for martial, 22 for rashford and 17 for greenwood is a good platform. Add to that both rashford and martial were injured for long periods of the season. Pre Bruno we had little creativity also. However, we do need a quality forward or 2 like Sancho to boost this attack when they are injured or tired. The alternatives are rubbish.
----------------------------------------------------------------------


Good find, though not surprising in the least.

Pretty much all the OP does on this site is say a load of things that contradict each other, then when one of them inevitably happens he comes back and says: "LOOK. LOOK EVERYONE. I WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG"

I don't even think he realises he's doing it tbf. Just thick as pigshīt.

One question I’ve got, how the fook after spending almost £500mil on this squad past 3 seasons does it look like we need to spend another £500mil to fix this trash squad again. There’s also even more deadwood on high wages then there was when LVG was in charge.

Ole signings have been meh. The next manager has to get it right. It's frightening how much cash we need to splash again hoping to fix this team
