    I remember the Rooney and Ferdinand transfers being called insane years ago. 30m now seems to be the standard for a top class player.

    United got it dead right with those 2 IMO. Have a hunch we'll be saying the same thing about Shaw.

    Funny thing is on our side it seems the word is that we don't want to part with 35-40m on Sanchez and would rather it all cash.

    Apparently, Liverpool has bid 20m on Lovren. Starting to feel sorry for Southampton. They've lost Shaw, Lallana and Lambert, and look like they're losing Lovren and Schneiderlin too. Can't remember the last time a team lost arguably their 5 best players in one transfer window.

    Yeah, just illustrating how times have changed. With sponsorship and TV deals going through the roof I can see them going higher. Imagine in 10 years time what some of the deals will look like.

    Debuchy makes me miss Danny Simpson. Make of that what you will.

    In hindsight those deals were probably the equivalent of spending like 50m on a defender and a teenager these days.

    It's a question of whether you'd rather have someone who was consistently just below average, or someone who could do something occasionally very good but most of the time was a defensive liability. Admittedly he performed better this season but even so, look at any of our thrashings from the second half of the season and I'll bet you'll find poor Debuchy defending contributing to a goal. Also I love Danny.

    Edit: I'm not being fair, he was injured for a lot of the end of the season. Maintain my opinion though.

    Really rate how Southampton have handled themselves this window tbh.

    Must stop believing Sanchez is going to happen - my god.

    Interesting this about the Shaw deal is it's only a four year deal and he's a diehard Chelsea fan. If United don't re-establish themselves quick time then the summer leading up to 17/18 could be interesting.

    Didn't Chelsea let him go for being too short at the age of 8?

    If we don't re-establish ourselves then we won't hold on to our good players but I don't think Shaw is a bigger risk than any of the others- certainly not than guys like Herrera who will surely go to Madrid or Barca if he's a big success in England.

    The whole British player therefore won't leave thing is a bit of a myth though. So many examples of it over the years from various top clubs. Not necessarily to Real/Barca but that isn't really the point, the point is whether they leave at all. Wouldn't surprise me at all if Shaw ends up at Chelsea in a few years time whether we reestablish ourselves or not.

    Doesn't mean we shouldn't sign him though tbf. Just like we shouldn't not sign someone Spanish because they might want to go back to Spain one day, especially if we get a nice transfer fee out of it.

    We have the division's best player + a 600k windfall from Creswell's transfer to West Ham. Title is ours.

    20m for Lovren seems absurd.
