i'd still say it was a dropped sandwich moment. Bojan was the new Messi before Messi was the new Messi. He was never as good, but better than what happened to him, getting shoved out of the team and then loaned out, returned when they had signed replacements. Can't see him doing amazing at Stoke, but could earn his return to the big time maybe. Atletico Madrid and Napoli missed a trick, as did Spurs. Fingers crossed anyway

Can will spend the season at left back for Liverpool then. Bit of a waste but maybe he can get back to midfield when he leaves in a few years after a good season with Liverpool there. Tadic sounds interesting. I need to get him in my FF I think

@bazrah99 The fact that he's gone to Stoke is the shocker. Can you honestly believe he would have gone there if Pulis was in charge?

Bojan is a classy player with excellent passing and playmaking skills which haven't dwindled and were still on show for Ajax last season. He probably won't finish many games and does tend to go missing. He generally lacks determination and although still young, is already one of those who have could've been great, but lacked drive. Still, a shockingly great signing for Stoke.

redped, he has struggled to meet the potential labels of years past and is a complete gamble for any team, hardly a dropped sandwich moment. I hope he does well and gets his career back on track as he is definitely capable of becoming a great player.

Bojan Krkic to Stoke for £3m. What a deal. Spain International? check. Product of La Masia and 'next Messi'? check. Early stage of career for big sell on fee? Check. Now that is a 'dropping the bacon sandwich moment'. Fair play to Hughes who's had his critics but this is a great transfer

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

Van Gaal welcomes 'new start'


guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
