i don't see us making any big splashes this year or next. expect more jorgensen level signings while the PATH weekend situation gets resolved.

 

If we can barely fill 18k seats with Zlatan's first appearance in town, then it seems like a waste to spend millions on a marquee player if no one will show up to watch.

Alexis Sanchez, Man Utd are doing everything they can to get him out. He's gonna demand a higher wage than what Euro clubs are willing to pay, since he is past his prime (and also a bit of a dick).

 

This checks off literally every box for a magic singing everyone is clamoring for.

 

Big name player

 

South American

 

Winger/Forward

 

Difference Maker

 

RB, City and the LA's are the only teams who could afford him. Thoughts?

 

A LOT will depend on how he performs during the Copa America this summer. There's some interest in him if United are willing to pay half but a huge performance in June reminding everyone of the old Alexis Sanchez suddenly drums up a lot of interest. I'm not sure why Man Utd is so quick to get rid of him. His value can't go any lower than it is now (barring injury) and it could only go up with a great performance in Copa America. Either way, I just can't see us paying for his services.

WHY? 

he's still a stud even as old as he is... People act like Metro has the Roster that Man City or Chelsea or Liverpool have...

This roster has guys that of they went to Roma tomorrow wouldn't even make the match day roster.. Yet De Rossi was still out there handling business....

Same for Ribery... I want Ribery and Robben ans De Rossi... Next someone is gonna sy they'd rather start Etienne or Omir over Ribery or Robben?!?!
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

I said elsewhere that I was terrified that they would use the PATH situation as an excuse to explain away all the empty seats instead of addressing the real reasons for it that have been repeatedly discussed here. Do they have enough foresight to see that if they phone it in for the next few years when the day comes that PATH service is back to normal the fanbase will have been completely disintegrated?
