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

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.

Excellent article Buzz, Thanks for posting. :026:

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

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.......... :024: 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 :013:

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.

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?”

Why, methinks the ex rag is a tad bitter to be getting his knickers in a twist still
:065: :101: :033:

....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?

Apparently not dissimilar to Messi whose sentence was 21 months as opposed to Sanchez's 16 months.
