    Just seen the edit. I agree jam's quotes aren't that bad, they're in because he asked for them to be.
    Fair enough. The Eb one is hauntingly true still 3 months after he made it though

    I seriously don't understand it.
    Their attack is excellent anyway, they just need a defence.
    At least united got falcao instead of arsenal.

    It will be all the more funny when a team with ADM, falcao, Rooney, RVP and mata finish outside the top 4...
    I think the club are just panicking and signing big names for the sake of it. They didn't particular need Di Maria or Falcao but how much have they spent on transfer/loan fee and wages?

    Where do you fit in RVP, Rooney, Falcao, Di Maria and Mata?

    Liverpool and QPR are in talks for Borini, permanent deal.
    I don't get why he rejected Sunderland?

    I used the analogy already with the house. It's not your asset, just because a house doesn't lose half its value in 2 years usually doesn't mean it's not applicable.

    If I use wages on top of this transfer fee then it makes the deal more ridiculous, if he gets no tax and you're matching his wages to the equivalent of what he gets in monaco you'd have to double his wages to 450k.
    A 28 year old 40m striker will lose his value at a rate of at least 6m a year, so there's no difference between transfer and loan.

    Houses don't lose 15% value per year, it's not applicable

    No offence but you're sounding like tyrion here.

    Houses don't lose 15% value per year but they lose value, hence making the analogy applicable, just over a different time frame. You are being ridiculously pedantic.

    Lol tbh I didn't bother reading the discussion and never do. It usually starts with mu15 pointing out something that Luke has said wrong (I think Mu sees this as an achievement :confused:) and then Luke replies with some mind-numblingly **** logic, Mu replies with a meaningless twitter stat or fact and then the two of them are just equally obnoxious, obtuse and stubborn, burning through the pages with absolute ****e discussion and insults.

    Tl dr ignore listed them both
    Sums it up well tbh. Where is ignore list at these days, sure it's moved from when i used it last. got a fair few who need to go on there.

    No I'm not, because the speculated details don't matter and this is getting away from the point.

    You say you count wages in loan deals but not transfers. I'm saying that's retarded because paying 6m a year for a loan is the same if not a better deal as buying him outright then selling for a loss in a few years. You pay the same wages in both cases, you pay a fee in both cases. You haven't explained how this isn't the case yet.

    Falcao fair enough, but Di Maria? We've needed a half decent winger since 2009.

    The point was that he's overpriced. Not really due to the loan fee, but because of the wages. This would be the case whether you're buying him or loaning him. You're just being pedantic to cover up how disappointed you really are with your transfer dealings.

    That's not the point though, because you and jam both specifically said you include wages in loan deals and not transfers. That's the point.

    I'm not disappointed lol, we've done well. 2 defenders, 2 CMs along with beasty attacking signings.

    Have Rolo, Blind and Falcao even been signed yet?

    Last I heard, Rolo was still partly owned by a third party so he could not be registered. Also he beat up his neighbour so can't get a visa.

    Falcao will probably be confirmed, but I haven't heard anything about Blind all day?

    couldn't agree more zerf.

    i am of course envious that they bought that much talent, although i would have been a lot of scared if they invested all the di maria/falcao money in to quality defenders.

    It is not a better deal as you can still keep the player after buying him, you can make him sign a lower contract to join United. If Falcao does well, then you can then give him another contract, where you keep his services while you don't keep his services if you loan him out, he could still warrant a very high value at 31 for Monaco and you may have to pay more than 20M(if it works out very well) and you want him.

    I'm just saying that paying that fee and wages for a loan where the players aren't going is ridiculous.

    The problem is you will still see the post if someone quotes them, no doubt you will still see Lukes posts as people like to get into fights with him and so will be quoting him.
