    £50-75m for a Ronaldo at his peak is an absolute bargain. I think it would be higher.
    50-75m is not a bargain, its a fair price. Hes nearly 29.

    For the 2nd best player in the world who will guarentee success for the next 4 years that is a bargain. Take RVP for an example.... :lol:

    what is success worth in terms of revenue though? Being champion rather than 2nd might get you 30million extra from prize money/sponsorship so rvp paid for his transfer fee in one season. We would have to win the league every year for 5 years without any other transfers to justify the purchase of ronaldo. Would prefer bale, if we bought him now and sold him in 5 years we would probably break even so his transfer is 0 in the long term.

    24m for RVP was excessive for a 29 year old in jury prone player. I can walk into a BMW showroom tomorroe and buy a 5-series for 100,000. I'd get an amazing car but can I say I got a bargain? Of course not.

    RVP is at the ass end of his peak.

    I don't really understand your maths... Winning the league gets us 30m, if Ronaldo costs 50-75m that's 2 or 3 league wins, where is 5 coming from?

    If that BMW earns you back more than you paid for it, then yes of course you can say it's a bargain.

    Explain how RVP earned you 24m(and 250k every week) ? Given that 2012/13 was by far the weakest in EPL memory,

    Yes bruv, when RVP is 33 and earning 250k/week, you'll be laughing innit.

    Fergie overpaid for RVP, because he knew it was his last chance. Unfortunately, RVP was as useful in a CL knock out, as an oyster card on Christmas Day.

    Because 33 year olds are useless, and Zanetti was not 37 when he scored in the Champions League, Zidane was not 34 when he scored in the world cup final and Giggs was definitely not 35 when he was player of the year

    I don't understand how you think RVP was not worth 24mill. He was a bargain, especially compared to signings so far this summer!

    You have paid roughly 12m in wages since he joined(you will be paying 1m/month when RVP is 33). not Including the 24m transfer fee, for a player imminently turning 30, then I have to ask how you dont think you overpaid. 36M so far and counting...

    You could have signed Chamakh and still won the league, considering the pathetic quality of the competition, but in the CL RVP went missing(as he normally did for Arsenal). Go figure.

    agree with jam so much. People are s retarded when it comes to David moyes. We want a manager like him who won't think he is bigger than the club (mourinho). Moyes will be great
    Fergie was arguably as big as the club and that didn't turn out too badly? I'm looking forward to seeing what Moyes does but since Mourinho has come out and said he wants this spell in England to be a long one that can't be used as a reason for not having him.

    As I linked to on the other page, Madrid made their investment back in shirts and merchandise alone in a couple of seasons.

    What are people basing this on? That we won it by a mile and that the English teams when out of Europe earlier than usual? That doesn't indicate it was the weakest in memory, now and again teams will go out and earlier and we beat who was put in-front of us.

    He scored 3 goals in the group stage, sure he didn't score against Madrid and didn't play amazingly in those 2 matches and for most we were playing extremely defensively, that doesn't make him a flop.

    I have no clue how many shirts that is but I am sure it has made a considerable dent in what we paid for him.

    RVP was infamously poor in the CL for Arsenal. Just google it or something. For Utd he's been equally terrible.

    Not to mention that RVP has been **** at international tournaments for Holland(WC2010 was so so poor). I'm half-Dutch, and honestly, Huntelaar has the reputation as the big game player for Holland.

    He has not been 'terrible' for us and it's only been 1 season either way, he scored our 2 goals vs Cluj and brought us level against Braga with 10 minutes to go where we went on to win. Vs Madrid he wasn't brilliant but then again we set behind the ball most of the games so what did we expect?

    Yeah and Rooney was not worth £30m because he's been terrible for England, oh wait it's completely irrelevant
