    So although being annoyed that someone we were interested in has ended up at Chelsea, we (I'm) should be more annoyed that we didn't tie up Sancho when it looked like it was possible.

    Well I still don’t get why we didn’t force their hand there
    Take £10m less for walker and make it happen
    He would now cost £70m
    Scarily bad decision for me

    Always had the impression City were absolute in not allowing him to come to us.

    Then we should have been absolute in not letting them have Walker then.

    £50m was good money for him.

    Im disappointed we couldnt get Sancho, but ultimately we took a lot of cash but missed out on a potentially good youth player.

    Hindsight is always 20/20.

    I know he was always highly rated, but so is (was?) Edwards, and has he stepped up?

    At the time Sancho was no guarantee of success, and we had Edwards, so I can completely understand he was a nice to have and not an deal breaker.

    Sancho has just won the best player of his age from UEFA. He was always gonna be a star

    Edward was an impact sub for England so not in the same league according to his international manager

    We tried everything to get Sancho. Everything. If you start ransoming players then the dressing room can turn (remember many are mates)...

    If you roll back time a little way, youll note that most comment was that they were very similar players of very similar potential/ability.

    Mainly by spurs fans though
    In the youth fan base which I follow online (never been to a game myself) sancho was the star and Edwards was one of a few others very talented players

    Even so, my point still stands.

    Promising youth player, club refused to deal, we took a sizeable sum instead.

    Its worked out such that those who said "we should get Sancho" get to say "I told you so" but even then I dont think it makes it a bad deal at the time.

    Walker paid for Sanchez + half of Aurier. That's the way to think of that deal.

    Interesting to see that the signing of Pulisic instantly signals to certain segments of the media that Chelsea will soon lose Hazard to Real. Hard to imagine that Pulisic even comes close to replacing Hazard.

    But shirt sales next summer in America? Phwoarrr!

    I remember the sea of Bobby Convey Reading shirts at NRA rallies and Nascar the length and breadth of the country.
