The fact we signed Chuk’s brother for “£1m” (despite no obvious talent) suggests there’s an entourage of people with a keen interest in his (their) career. 
That doesn’t mean he cannot make it but I suspect he’d be better off with out them.

Neil Rioch, Alan Little. Nothing new.

I’m sure I read somewhere that those two were only bought in to make sure the more talented brother signed.
In fairness to Neil Rioch, although it didn’t work out playing wise he does a lot for the old boys team.
Alan Little ended up at Torquay if I remember correctly

Sancho's stock is falling by the day, be a good signing.

I don't often agree with you, Ashton, but on this I do.

No. No! Hell No!

On this date 15 years ago, Lehman Brothers' stock was falling by the day. It doesn't mean it would have been a good buy.

I think there's a good player in Sancho but Man U was a terrible move for him, not sure I'd want to be the club that rehabilitates him though.

See Jesse Lingard.
Was on his way to redemption when he went to West Ham, now he’s floating around looking for a club.
Sancho is the next Lingard

I was jut going to say something like "and there's a male model in me, and he's not getting out either" but then realised it might be misconstrued.

I agree, he needs to spend 2nd half of season somewhere where he will start week in week out as that rehab…

They are a basket case club

Hearing a lot of talk about a marque signing.

Is that so we can sit in it when they have knocked down the north stand?

seems that he lacks that acceleration needed to be really effective in the PL.

I read that as Maguire signing and was very, very concerned.

Yeah, that might be right, but he's technically very good, has great top end pace and he's a good finisher so I think he has enough to work with for someone but will probably end up with another year or 2 of his career being flushed away as they try to make back as much as they can on him before he walks away for nothing.

Sounded to me like Noble coming from West Ham, and ! was very, very concerned.

Sorry, I saw some posts about us wanting a marque signing in Jan, and I thought that was funny and instantly regretted it.

But then I didn't delete it because I thought some people might have already read it and thought removing it would make it seem I lacked conviction
