Man U Madness....?
#1
become the most valuable player in the world when he re-signs for Manchester United - but is he the club's most expensive mistake?
The Juventus midfielder left Old Trafford in 2012 because of a lack of first-team opportunities, but he could become the centrepiece of Jose Mourinho's new-look United side.
From £1.5m to £89m in four years
Pogba's talent has been evident for years. That was why United signed him from Le Havre in 2009, when he had already captained France's Under-16 team.

Fair Point!

Now I'm no socialist, but no player is worth £100 million, that's just corporate vanity gone mad.

Is this where Football is going? That money will not be re invested back into any club OR the local communities....

OK, we shouldn't have poverty in this country, but we do. That £100 million could be invested into local schools, youth engagement programmes, food clubs.... Hell, anything but on one man who may or may not produce the goods.

Personally I'd tax the fuck out of these lunatic transfers and any avoidance be dealt with by asset seizure.

Rugby decided to reject rediculous transfer fees, the game is all the better for it and is actually competitive. Not all based on results and corporate failure.

I just can not get my head round it. Absolutely disgustingly mind blowing. I honestly think it's sad.

You are spot on Chris.

The idea of going and "enjoying" a game has long been forgotten with the smell of corporate America.
Product placement.... Have Chili Dogs and Starbucks replaced Prawn Sandwiches and a cup of Earl Grey?

The last rugby match we went to, actually standing close to the lines...we got splashed by muddy water when the tackle came in a bit heavy.... The lads walked up, apologised and offered a beer in the club afterwards....

It's all a bit spit and sawdust.... But I'd rather pay £4.50 for that, curry or stew thrown in.

Always said rugby is a man's game..

Football is for girls..... And to be honest, they are doing a far better job of it than their male colleagues.
The girls seem to get the ethos of team spirit...but the cynic in me seems to think they aren't as financially obsessed as the men, yet.

If you go to a rugby league match as I did once they have cheerleaders to go with the mud & beer
