      Sheer f**king class. One of those compilation/skills videos that is actually representative of what you get every game from the player in question because I have to say that every time I've watched him live (all in all must be between 20-30 times in my life) this is the level he was at.

      I think I will never tire of watching him receiving the ball between 2-3 players and instantly beating their press with his first touch, literally leaving them in the dust, and following it up with a delightful through ball for a forward. The type of skill that reminds me why I love this game so much. He's not particularly fast but the fact that he knows what he's doing with the ball before it is even midway through to to him combined with the skill to pull such outrageous first touches...wow

      I'd like to point out that I think (I think) that his qualities are perfect for our style. Teams have been trying to sit in compact blocks and press us hard beyond a certain point on the field and then beat us on the counter. Gonna be fun seeing this guy smartly positioned to gain back possession after we lose it, break a 3 men press with one touch and pulling a through ball to Mane, Bobby or Salah against the run of play.

      What you there for? The storyline? See if the writers see the plot through from start to finish 😀

      Good disussion about him being the highest profile name we have signed. Thinking about it, its not far off.

      We signed many many top class players, but when we signed them they were not already in that top bracket of player, they became wotld claa here.

      Weve rarely signed, if ever, from another elite European club and while they are chzmpions of Europe.

      Rush back from Juve and arguably Kenny from Celtic are the only ones already in the top bracket but neither from the Elite at the time, Juve were starting the slide at that point.

      So its a unuque signing in that regard. Will it be the start of us going that direction?

      I'd say that both Virgil and Alisson were high profile when we bought them

      Neither from an elite club and arguably question marks on if VVD was noted as world class at Southampton?

      Agree Brian

      Virgil was very good at southampton but certainly had work to do, which he has done to become elite, the potential was there but it was still that at that time, hes now world class

      Alisson dont forget had only played one season in europe prior to signing for us, and again has now become world class he wasnt there when we signed him

      Thiago on the other hand has been thought of as world class for a few years, his trophy winning resume is astounding and hes leaving the current CL champions to sign for us

      Think that shows the level of the club right now, we have never signed anyone so established at the elite level

      In fairness to PornHub there's usually a finish, usually on somebody's face but it still classes as a finish.

      Me too... but I go to Netflix for that, and usually discuss them with my wife and friends

      Back on topic, Where's the flight tracker? Has he taken off yet? Whos staking out John Lennon? The lack of dedication from the fans in this saga, is deafening.

      Not only does this guy have skill for days, but he’s a winner. Mentality monster. Never hurts to add a player that’s accustomed to and expects to win.

      Another thing I love about this deal, other than him being world class, is there is no real risk...

      He either comes in and does wonders and we got him on a bargain, or he doesn’t do wonders and it’s not too much big deal... saying that I have no doubt he’ll be bossing the league week in week out.

      Apparently the deal was done and Moyes called his staff together and asked them what they thought of Thiago and Giggs said he wasn't a United player so Moyes pulled the plug on the deal. 😆

      We want a marquee worldwide name on the level of Messi and Ronaldo. Those who can win games all by themselves. They can play alone against any team and win. That high profile. You get what you pay for £25m. Cheap stuff. I have already passed judgement before even giving anyone a chance. Too bad I'm who I am. But you cannot judge me.
