    2. What spikes are these? He might have physical gifts but he hasn't shown yet that he is capable of using them.

    3. Based on current evidence, Pogba needs more catering to in a central midfield role compared to Petrucci.

    This is the first time I will be ahead of PGR. Tottenham signed Fryers according to a legit source on twitter. And here goes our youths down the drain.

    No. He doesn't. Petrucci is small, as David Jones demonstrated, skill and dexterity will only get you so far.

    I know that. The point is we are not even willing to pay wages that everyone is. If this is happening with a crap player like Fryers. What would you say about a big name player?

    Maybe United weren't willing to pay his wages because he's crap?

    We have a ridiculous number of technical dribblers in our youth teams right now who are also capable of passing/shooting from far. How is any of this a spike which only Pogba has?

    Petrucci is 189cm and very muscular these days. Clearly, you haven't been watching our youth much of late.

    Do you know what is fantastic about the Fryers news?

    The more Spurs pay him in wages, the more they have to give us in compensation. At 20k a week, we might even get 3M for him.

    Petrucci is small? He is almost has a similar physique to Macheda these days.

    And we are reportedly after Moutinho......

    Physique isn't the only thing Jones lacked to make it at the absolute top.

    If you include stamina in it, it was, he just didnt have the game for a modern top league midfielder specially in England and his other talents didnt prove that good to entirely compensate for it like Riquelme, also a victim of the era/trend which was moving away from one creative source with no other responsibilities.

    that's a bit extreme... if a player doesn't want to be here then why would we want him? yes he has talent but needs to go out on loan first. I'm sure if he signs with Spurs then that is exactly what will happen.

    "United are demanding £4million for the highly-rated teenager but Spurs are only prepared to offer half that, according to The Sun."

    ---

    speaking of compensation, 800K is what is being mooted for Juve to pay us for Pogba.

    Ben Amos looks to be sealing a 1-year loan to Hull City. good for him.

    ---

    people "close" to Zeki says he's gutted to leave and SAF would only offer him £1600 a week for 2 years, whereas Spurs are giving him £5000 a week. he's 20 years old. with Fabio out on loan and Evra reaching the end now was his time and SAF definitely didn't see the value in keeping him on.

    good for the player and good for the team.

    Man Fergie is cheap. Seriously though, I do not think he is worth the new contract, I still think it was easier to get minutes here at United than at Spurs. Plus what Spurs are offering him is really good, I just hope he will get some playing time.

    SPurs will probably use him at LB, where they have only Danny Rose as back up.

    Sorry, no I dont.

    I know Benoit Assou Ekoto is their unquestioned starter.

    I meant to communicate that fact that he'd have an easier path to first team football with Spurs then us./

    I was a bigger fan of his than most, thought he might have had a far shot here, but either way, those that think this is a "loss" of a player and a "sign" of our cheapness need their head's checked. Hell, the rumors I saw today were 20k a week, and had me scratching my head. But even 5k a week is too much.

    Can't blame the kid, easier road to first team ball and a chance to set up his family.
