Some of the mite reputable journos now reporting a permanent move for sanchez.
Not being privy to the details obviously but on the face of it there are positives.
A €15m fee seems about right and a huge chunk off the wage bill.
Lets hope that smalling can get a deal that suits him i hope he does i'd like to see the club facilitate that.
With any luck jones rojo periera dalot tfm grant mata and possibly lingard won't be far behind.
Get shut of that lot and you take the best part of 60m a year off the wage bill and bring in 60m in fees
3 top players would cost 30m in wages per season max.
Move as many of those in as possible and then get ole the 3 players he wants.
Get him his 1st choices. Pay what's needed if affordable.

Being report no fee.


2.) 03 Aug 2020 19:37:51
Fabrizio who seems to always be bang on has reported no fee for Sanchez. Glad to see the club have seen enough sense to just allow the player the move.

The wages saved are like a fee alone for a player his age.

Hopefully the same sense will be taken for players like smalling when reasonable fees are given to us to allow us to move forward.


3.) 03 Aug 2020 19:39:01
Fair play to Woodward if he gets €15m for Sanchez. I'm sure most of us would have accepted a slice of pizza and a Limoncello!


4.) 03 Aug 2020 20:03:16
The report is no fee but Inter will take care of his wages, meaning we will not to to payoff the rest of his contract. Considering his wages that is a fantastic piece of business.
We should have taken the same approach with Rojo.


5.) 03 Aug 2020 20:12:52
No fee expected. But shaving £400k a week off the wage bill is a godsend. Genuinely thought we’d be lumbered with him on massive money for nothing for another few years.


6.) 03 Aug 2020 20:27:35
Goodbye alexis you won’t be missed.


7.) 03 Aug 2020 20:28:16
True let's hope he is the 1st of many to go.


8.) 03 Aug 2020 21:15:00
I read he will earn €7 mill a year at inter and no fee between clubs so he has either walked away from a lot of money or you have paid him off to leave.


9.) 03 Aug 2020 21:29:19
Probably a handsome sign on for him from inter instead of a them paying us a fee.
Also the tax in Italy is a lot less for international players. So i'd imagine that's a net 7m but either way we can have 3 top players in on for the same 500k a week we are paying him.


10.) 03 Aug 2020 21:52:52
It's no fee so they can pay his high wages. I think ed002 already mentioned this a week or so ago. Still good to move him on and hopefully we've learnt from the whole shambles of a transfer.


11.) 03 Aug 2020 22:02:17
The telegraph are reporting that Unt paid off some of his contract for him to leave would be interested to know if Ed002 has any knowledge on it. Players don't usually take £10mil pay cuts.

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t know.}


12.) 04 Aug 2020 04:30:14
Best of luck to him. It’s a shame things didn’t work out for him at OT.


13.) 04 Aug 2020 16:33:30
Good luck to him. Disaster for him and the club - totally lost his mojo and hopefully signifies the end of that type of transfer from us again.


 

 

28 Jul 2020 11:04:06
Good morning ed002.
I see united linked again with SMS this morning. Is there any truth we are looking at him again?
I thought he was psg bound?
Ta.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (CM) Manchester United has not shown any interest in Milinkovic-Savic this season and have been difficult with Pogba and his agent in looking to leave - and that never looks good in the eyes of players or agents. Right now, it seems unlikely and the price would be about €100M to Manchester United as a starting point - and Pogba has nowhere to go. Juventus are looking at other options, but he remains on the list. The player was offered to PSG but there are issues holding up commitments from them at this time - although they might push with a better offer than the one that was rejected. Lazio have a replacement in mind but think that they could lose him elsewhere. Real Madrid see him as the preferred option to Pogba - where interest is waning as Manchester United are stuck in the "stupid" cycle but they now have a significant matter to deal with so they can be discounted. Manchester City see him as an option to their preferred choice and could well turn to him - but that is not happening at the moment. Every chance he will stay where he is unless he is available at a reasonable price or PSG decide to push for him before addressing their management issue.}


1.) 28 Jul 2020 18:10:53
Could you expand on what the significant issue is regarding united please ed?

{Ed002's Note - The way the club is run without a proper structure is a mess.}


2.) 29 Jul 2020 08:19:52
Hi Ed002. Hope you’re well. Still in Cornwall? Regarding the club, are they aware as such that the way they run the club is amateurish and is there someone external/ independent to the club who is able to point out that the structure is a mess?

{Ed002's Note - The amateurs do not accept that they are amateurs.}


3.) 29 Jul 2020 08:43:35
Morning Ed002,

You Firstly suggest that United have a significant matter to deal with then elaborate that it is a structural issue within the club (I’m guessing that the footballing matters that should be dealt Autonomously by a Director of Football as ably demonstrated by Chelsea, Liverpool and City are trapped in a painfully inefficient hierarchical structure)

Are United aware of how incompetent their existing structures are compared to other more dynamic clubs? And if so, are they actually going to do anything about in in the near future? Or are they just content to keep things as they are and continually conduct transfer business in an amateur way?

{Ed002's Note - The club periodically look for a Director of Football but those running the club seem reluctant to give up the associated responsibilities.}


4.) 29 Jul 2020 14:31:48
Thanks Ed002. Their attitude to relinquishing control seems at odds with making the club more successful. You’d think that intelligent business people would understand that. They only have to look at other elite clubs to see what kind of DoF structure is needed.

You’d really hope they’d put their own egos or agendas aside for a minute to Look longer term for the good of the club.


5.) 29 Jul 2020 20:50:37
Thanks Ed. Pretty shocking that they have no self-awareness. Seems like there’s going to be plenty of ups and downs over the next few seasons unless they pull their finger out.


 

 

24 Jul 2020 16:54:52
Ed002 can i ask your onion on what you think will happen with iur goal keeping position for next season.
Obviously ddg is on a very good long term contract but has been well below the standards he has been before.
Henderson is pushing for regular football.
Romero is being pursued by other clubs by all accounts.
How do you see things for each of them next season?
Perhaps the ideal is henderson signing a new deal and going on loan for another season.
Cheers.

ken

{Ed002's Note - DDG to stay, DH another year in Sheffield then depart, SR will look at options and JP to step up.}


1.) 24 Jul 2020 21:46:56
If DH departs, i can see us needing to spend upwards of £60m on a GK in 2 years time.


2.) 24 Jul 2020 23:00:40
JP being Joel Pereirra Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Right.}


3.) 25 Jul 2020 08:29:57
Does JP really look like being a contender for the No 1 Jersey all that soon? Has he got a higher ceiling than DH?


4.) 25 Jul 2020 02:55:15
Thanks ed.


5.) 25 Jul 2020 03:54:46
Is Joel Parreira is the same bracket as Henderson ed? Potential wise or higher?

{Ed002's Note - I have no way of knowing but I rather doubt he is seen to be at the same level.}


6.) 25 Jul 2020 06:05:18
Is JP highly thought of ed2? He showed some promise few years ago but not seen him for some time now?

{Ed002's Note - As a second choice for a leading club.}


7.) 25 Jul 2020 10:34:37
Good deputy for DDG for sure I think. Surely Romero fancies playing some games now instead of being sub every week?


 

 

24 Jul 2020 11:53:40
Hi ed002.
Were those rumours of Pogba potentially signing a new deal just that or do you know if they have opened talks with his agent?
It would be nice gong into the transfer window with that all sorted.
Thanks.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Mino was in London recently talking to a club about transfers and made calls to discuss players at other English sides (Everton and Kean being an example) but Manchester United have not spoken to him about a new contract at this time, but there remains a chance they will as the options that had been seen as possible replacements will be dwindling. Equally, the opportunities for Pogba are dwindling as well.}


1.) 24 Jul 2020 17:04:36
Thanks ed.
I just hope its not gong to be dragging on through the window and into next season. It would be great to see a decision before we begin next season.


2.) 24 Jul 2020 17:35:04
Ultimately there is only three possible outcomes.

1. We sell Pogba this summer. However, this will be easier said than done. With all sides being hit financially this year there are few who have the finances to buy him unless player exchanges are considered, which isn't something United want to do.

2. He stays and sees out his contact and leaves next summer. Although the club could make the brain dead decision of forcing the one year extensions. That would be stupid as they can't then sell him, just force an unhappy player to stay an extra year.

3. He stays and a new contract is signed. Oddly this might be the best option for everyone. At United Pogba is afforded far more license and freedom than he would get elsewhere, while he will probably also earn more here than elsewhere. On the flip side United are probably a couple of years away from truly challenging, which means Pogba will be in his 30th year before he gets a chance of winning another league title.

The issue with moving to Spain is Barcelona can't afford him and don't have any real need for him. Also I don't see how he fits into a Barcelona team. He could fit in at Real Madrid and Zidane does want him. But there doesn't appear to be any real desire for him from higher up at Real Madrid. They really want Mbappe, who will probably be too expensive this summer, but will be the prime target next summer.

The only way I see him moving to Spain in the next two years is if he sees out his contact and signs on a free.

Which leaves Juventus and PSG, I don't think he will want to return home to Paris while in his prime, they just aren't prestigious enough. Although PSG might have an interest if/ when Mbappe leaves. So they can have a top french international as the face of the club.

While he might be happy to go back to Juventus I really can't see him fitting into Sarri's ultra disciplined system. Plus Juventus probably don't have the cash to buy him so again it would likely have to be leaving United on a free as his best way back to Turin.

Ultimately United might be the best place for him for the next few years. If he signs a new 4 year deal that will take him until he's 31, he might get a move a year before the deal finishes at 30 for one last big contact at a different club. While United are probably the only club that will offer him a pay rise in the current climate.

Hi ed002 was there any breakthrough at the epl meeting today with regards to a restart?

ken

{Ed002's Note - That was not the purpose of today - there is a meeting between clubs on Thursday but they won’t be confirming a date. They have to resolve a number of issues first.}

Thanks ed002. Hope all going well for you in Cornwall.

Chong periera martial maguire bailly all looked sharp willams and Jesse were ok the rest played poorly or very poorly. But minutes on the clock. 1/ 4 final v Copenhagen to look forward to.

ken

1.) 05 Aug 2020 22:59:37
I wonder if Chong at left back is something they’ve been working on in training? Only reason I wonder is down the amount of talking you could heard from the coaches towards him.


2.) 05 Aug 2020 23:03:34
Completely agree, mengi looked decent too for a small cameo. I was pleasantly surprised by Chong and periera. Linked up well together down the left.


3.) 06 Aug 2020 00:28:56
Chong heading out on loan by the looks of things.


4.) 06 Aug 2020 06:27:59
Pereira really surprised last night. Maguire was the worst player on the pitch, looked very shakey several times at the back.


5.) 06 Aug 2020 09:00:57
LLV,

Really? I thought Maguire was absolutely fine last night, what mistakes do you think he made? His attacking headers are disappointing me but defensively didn’t really put a foot wrong and the goal was just a great finish.

If you watched that match last night and thought Maguire had a worse game than Mata and James then I think you were trying to make Maguire seem bad because you’ve decided he’s not good.


6.) 06 Aug 2020 12:36:55
He was caught out of position several times, a better opposition may have capitalised on that. And, as you pointed out, needs to begin converting some of those free headers he gets onto. To be fair to him, maybe he needs a rest, but he seems to be some sort of talisman who has to play every game.


7.) 06 Aug 2020 14:30:42
Daniel James is very frustrating- very rough diamond indeed. Would be good to see him play on the other side when Rashford is on the bench.


 

 

26 Jul 2020 19:40:25
3rd is a great achievement given where we were before we signed bruno.
I really hope that we can achieve our core targets.
In terms of final position we have improved and cl football is where the club needs to be.
Now its all about the EL. Win that and this seadon will have been a successful one.
Dont under estimate the value of this trophy. Winning a European trophy will create a hunger and desire for more success for these young players.
Winning will accelerate their development.
Well done to all the staff for turning it around.
Its all about the EL and next season now but at least they can go into both competitions with a lot of confidence.
We are a long way off. A 20 point improvement is the target i'm setting all concerned. That will have us in the shake up next season imo.
Looking forward to 16th aug for hopefully a 3 game winning run to win the EL.

ken

1.) 26 Jul 2020 20:00:38
We got the exact same points total as last year when we finished 6th. This year it's been good enough for 3rd. What won't change next year is the bar for the top spot. That will be 90+ points again. I'm not expecting a title challenge but we need to keep improving. Today gives us a great platform to hopefully go up to the next level.


 

 

25 Jul 2020 16:22:53
All the stars are aligned for us tomorrow.
Leicester are without 1st choice rb 1st and 2nd choice lb, 1st choice cb replacing him with Wes Morgan. They are also without their playmaker in maddison.
Ole on the other hand has a pretty much full strength squad to choose from.
Let's hope we get an early lead.

ken

1.) 25 Jul 2020 16:53:20
No one making excuses for Rodgers. I see the media "Rodgers blows it again" over the last while. They've had a very good season and as you said Ken47, they've had it bad with injuries.

We should have too much for them everywhere on the pitch to be honest. This should be the easiest team talk of Oles career.


2.) 25 Jul 2020 17:01:36
Everytime there’s a post on here saying we should win a certain game then we don’t. Not saying you are wrong, I’m just not that confident 🤞🤷‍♂️.


3.) 25 Jul 2020 17:21:16
Leicester haven't lost at home since City in February it will not be an easy game. Hoping that Wolves do us a favour and score an early goal against Chelsea, takes the pressure off.


4.) 25 Jul 2020 19:38:42
DDG, Smalling, Jones, Evans, Evra, Nani, Cleverley, Anderson, Young, Rooney and Welbeck.

Hardly an inspirational lineup, in fact it looks pretty poor. Missing many key players, Smalling at RB was our 3rd or 4th choice. No Vidic or Ferdinand, no Carrick, no Hargreaves, no Berbatov, no Giggs.

A team stripped of many of our best players.

Well that was the line up for our famous 8-2 trashing of Arsenal.

Just because Leicester have a few key injuries that is no reason to take them lightly. Remember that many of the players coming in will see it as their big chance to show they should be starting every week.

It's a huge game for Leicester a one game play off for UCL qualification. They will give it 100%, and are more than capable of beating us on the day.


5.) 25 Jul 2020 20:08:44
For sure shappy i'm not suggesting for one second they will make it easy for us or that it will be easy.
They will be busting a gut, but its to our advantage that they will be missing 3 of their back 4.
We have a settled team, ok, its been a bit patchy for the last few games but we have still created chances and scored in every game.
Nothing will be easy unless we are 3 up after 20 mins, then we're coasting🙏.


6.) 25 Jul 2020 21:00:17
I’m hoping Wolves win and we draw. Then we are both in CL and Chelsea miss out.


7.) 25 Jul 2020 21:37:11
True Ken, but they haven known these players would be missing since their last game, they have had a whole week to prepare, to work hard on the training ground to be ready specifically for this game. They will know our weaknesses, and they will have planned to mitigate our strengths.

I fully expect Vardy to sit on Maguire's shoulder to spin behind him and beat him in a foot race to any balls played in behind or over the top of our defence.

While I wouldn't be surprised to see them man mark Bruno. Mendy maybe, then they would still have Ndidi free to clear up any other chances.

Harvey Barnes is a real threat coming in from wide, while Perez is one of those players who often turns it on against a top side. Tielemanns is also a great player, who can hit screamers if given a sight on goal.

It's a tricky game, ideally we want to press them and put pressure on their defence, but if we do that too high then we leave a huge space for them to play Vardy in over the top.

I'd look to play a possession based game. That would suit our tired legs and would limit Leicester's chances. I'd maybe sit compact and narrow and force them wide then use the side of the pitch to press them, that way we can win the ball back without having to commit too many men to the press. While cutting off any chances bar going wide and crossing in. Which you'd fancy Maguire winning those aerial balls against Vardy all day long. I'd be tempted to go with a 442 diamond to give us a compact midfield with several lines to progress the ball quickly and vertically, but will give us the numbers to press them when they go wide. You get the left side striker move out and press when they play the ball out to that side and the right side striker moves centrally and vice versa when they play out to the other side.


8.) 26 Jul 2020 03:55:53
That 8-2 example is great and everything however they don't have sir alex managing them they have Brendan Rodgers and there is the real difference.

Absolutely no excuse not to win at the very least play on the front foot with the intention to win and not to play for a draw. Leicester are weakened ole better be taking the initiative.


 

 

24 Jul 2020 11:47:23
From reading the posts our summer could look like this.
Qualify for CL.
Compete to win EL
Ole to continue his work.
Target sancho and grealish for attack
Other positions will be dependent on departures and finances
Players the club will actively look to sell or are open to offers on appear to be. Jones rojo smalling lingard sanchez periera mata dalot.
Unknowns
Ddg or henderson?
Romero may look to leave
Pogba stay or go? Looks like stay at this point.
Ighalo stay after jan?
Loans for the Inbetweeners chong garner henderson levitt laird.
DOF. who knows.
That's in its broadest terms how i see our summer. Let's hope that it all runs as smooth as possible
My big hopes if the above accurate is that we win the EL and gets Ole his core targets and go again next season and get a hot start. The EL does provide the players with a great pre season opportunity.
We need to be 20 points better off next season to compete and hope the others drop off a bit.

ken

1.) 24 Jul 2020 16:02:19
The next transfer window is absolutely crucial.

Ed002 said United have pile of cash. Hopefully we spend it wisely and close the gap at the top.

{Ed002's Note - It comes from not paying debts that are due.}


2.) 24 Jul 2020 17:03:42
Ed i understand if you would rather not answer. Are the glazers or club got any plans to pay off the debt of is it a case of just refinancing the current debt when needed paying interest
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - They are working on it but this year is an exception.}


3.) 24 Jul 2020 17:37:28
That sounds like we might have some money to spend this year but next year we might have to be a little more frugal.


4.) 25 Jul 2020 01:39:47
I can't see United doing many deals. 7 and 11 shirts are vacant. Grea11sh seems a good marketing thing.


5.) 25 Jul 2020 02:57:16
Only problem is that woody can only do one thing at a time. And likes to take his time to get them "right".


6.) 25 Jul 2020 09:54:24
If Henderson comes back then Romero will leave I think, he might be okay being second choice but he is far too good to be third choice.

For me the issues we need to solve this summer are in no particular order:

Who is No.1 next season, DDG or Henderson.

Who is Harry Maguire's CB partner, are they at the club or do we need to bring someone in.

Sign a top quality Right Winger. Sancho, or someone else.

Squad depth, particularly in creative midfield. We have no cover what so ever for Pogba. While the back up for Bruno is poor (Lingard, Mata and Pereira) there are players there. Plus we could possibly bring Mejbri in if really needed. Yet the cover for Pogba are defensive midfielders and not creative options. I'd love to see us sign someone like Donny van de Beek as he could offer quality cover for BOTH Bruno and Pogba.


7.) 25 Jul 2020 10:11:48
Shappy, are you van de beek's agent or perhaps his mum? I think that's the 1,839th time you said utd should sign him.


8.) 25 Jul 2020 10:22:01
If I had my way;

DDG out, Deano back in.
A top class CB in alongside Maguire, who is world class and available obvs an issue.
Pogba out, Saul in.
Grealish in
Sancho in
Somehow sell or release Smalling, Jones, Rojo, Sanchez, Lingard, Andreas.


9.) 25 Jul 2020 12:57:05
MancMan, I just think he's a great player.


10.) 25 Jul 2020 14:08:17
wrd - youve got my vote and the job.


11.) 25 Jul 2020 16:16:48
I wouldn't give WRD the job cooky. The power will go to his head😂.


12.) 27 Jul 2020 16:13:33
Fair enough Shappy, I'm just messing around. From the way you describe him he does sound like a good option. Which means we probably won't sign him.


 

 

24 Jul 2020 11:25:57
What a big day Sunday is going to be.
3 clubs fighting out for top 4.
With id's being the only team knowing a draw is enough make us favourites?
I think we will go out to win the game but with 20 mins to go if its still level it will get very nervy.
These are the games that players work for notwithstanding there is no trophy at stake this is very much a cup final. I
We are effectively gong in with a 1 goal advantage in some ways.
An aggressive approach would be my preference it suits our players best and I'm sue that's what we will go with the target of getting an early lead.
I know i'd rather be playing with Harry than Wes Morgan i'm sure we can expose him. I can't see Leicester keeping a clean sheet.
Martial rash and mason will get chances.

ken

1.) 24 Jul 2020 11:43:48
Leicester are missing three key players and with the pressure of needing the win (they will have to go for it, which may leave space for us), it could play into our hands. But we also have the habit of messing up at times like these, so it's cautious optimism before the game.

I don't think people are focusing enough on Wolves needing a win to secure European football (if they finish 7th and Arsenal win the FA Cup, they will not qualify, unless they win the Europa League of course), so that Chelsea game will be tight. And I wouldn't put it past Wolves to cause an upset.


2.) 24 Jul 2020 11:49:51
Defo Ken. Read a stat that the only away games we’ve lost this year are where we haven’t scored. So need to take the initiative, go for goals. Then defend well and close off the spaces for Vardy. I can see a problem if we go behind.


3.) 24 Jul 2020 12:38:19
Wolves to beat chelsea.


4.) 24 Jul 2020 13:26:09
The players have looked tired and the manager has lacked tactical know how in the last 3 games, but Sunday has to be a high temp, one-off game. A real test of motivation. No game for a week and a half, and even that is a dead rubber, so a good rest to look forward to. A rest feels a heck of a lot better when it has been earned!


5.) 24 Jul 2020 13:31:24
I think Chelsea will beat Wolves and we will lose to Leicester. Then the critics will have a field day.


6.) 24 Jul 2020 14:33:31
The players are knackered. They were on Wednesday so there is no reason they won't be Sunday. Leicester have had a week off so they will be fresh. Its going to be a very cagey game. Wont be breathing easy until the final whistle is blown and we have scored more goals than Leicester.


7.) 24 Jul 2020 14:47:56
I believe each teams possibilities to make cl are
Man utd
Beat or draw with leicester
Lose to leicester but chelsea lose to wolves

Chelsea
Beat or draw with wolves
Lose to wolves but utd beat leicester

Leicester
Beat utd
Draw with utd and wolves beat chelsea.


8.) 24 Jul 2020 16:58:52
Im not so sure jred. Its a tough one to call. Obviously that would be ideal. Chelsea are weak at the back no doubt but they are scoring plenty and creating lots of chances. I expect them to get at least the point they need.
Like ourselves they only need a draw to guarantee their spot.


9.) 25 Jul 2020 01:45:57
i've got a feeling a player will feign an injury in the second half to increase the stoppage time to gain an an advance on the Chelsea result and if Chelsea lose I reckon both teams will settle on a draw.


10.) 25 Jul 2020 08:22:43
I'm worried we'll be losing 2-1 and Chelsea will be a goal down and they'll equalise in the 95th minute or something. It'll we be 2012 all over again.


11.) 25 Jul 2020 10:16:33
It's really really simple. Beat Leicester and don't worry about what everyone else is doing.

Wolves my beat Chelsea, or they could lose or draw. Who knows.

While a draw with Leicester would be enough, I can't handle the last 10 minutes plus injury time of the game if we are 0-0 or 1-1 and a goal for Leicester would put us down to 5th. I can't hack that.

Go out get an early goal, stay compact, keep concentrating, keep going for the second goal, score the second then do the same. Don't give them an inch and go for the third.

Don't try to be clever, don't try and shut up shop and invite them on to us, and don't bank on a draw being enough.

Just win the god damn game.

Id love to see him have a good year or 2 somewhere. Bit of talk of juve, however true it is, they are the masters of a good free transfer and getting the best from aging players.
Could he be motivated again? i'm not sure. He seems to have just fallen out of love with madrid and the game in general.

He has won lots helped his intl team to new unprecedented heights he is a multi millionaire. A bit like rooney you are left with the feeling he could have done even better than he did but overall i'd say he has fulfilled pretty much all his boyhood dreams and aspirations. Not that sad. i'd say he is pretty happy playing golf. He might even out last zidane at madrid.
Very few professional footballers think like fans. Its just a job to most of them. I think he has done petty well from his job.

Herrera each to their own lines drawn in the sand some would rather do that than admit that the player hasn't fulfilled his over hyped potential. Steady eddie no more. i'm not knocking him for that as i said every team needs a couple of steady eddies not everyone can be a bruno.
Best in the world is what some were saying he would be he was the most expensive teenager but to be fair he was totally over hyped. He is a run of the mill fb average by epl standards.
Jred is right he will be fine just like lots of our players they will just tick and plod along being fine.
We don't need to or can't have worldies in every position.
We thought and were told we were getting a worldie i suppose that's where a lot of the disappointment comes surrounding shaw.

Madrid would love bale to pull a stunt like that trd so they could fire him for gross misconduct and save themselves 600k a week.

Danny gomes turned down 30k a week and signed for lille for less as it happens.
If the players don't get it there is no way merchandise or tv will become cheaper. The owners get it so what then? cap how much their company or club can earn. Why should footballers be victimised or would it be baseball and basketball players and boxers then actors and rock stars.
Its just not right to control anybodies ability to maximise their earnings and to limit them imo.
