Jadon sancho

  • @PB-man yeah agreed, you won't just get the nr 7 shirt for fun in a top European club either, the drop since last night is killing me though 😞

  • My advise would be wait before you top up mate

  • @PB-man said in Jadon sancho:

    I've not seen an English talent like this since Rooney so I will be topping up more. At 18 he's not just been holding his own in the Bundesliga and Champions League but has actually often been the best player on the park .

    He's playing like an elite 25 year old here:


    If he follows the normal ageing curve he will be up there with the best players in the world.

    Let's not get carried away 2 goals in 19 games in the German league is hardly rooney esque.

    He looks like being a very good player but let's not hype him up as a one in a generation talent. Rooney was getting hatricks at 18 for united in the champions league at his age .

  • Those every touch videos are worth watching for players you haven't seen but are considering investing in. This is Sancho at 17 vs Leverkrusen in the game he scored a 205 PB score (youngest player to score 200+ for PB):


    As long as he avoids injury I think we could be looking at a World record transfer fee.

  • @Tom77 said in Jadon sancho:


    True but Sancho is the leading assister in all of Europe currently which is impressive in it's own right. If he's even half the player Rooney was then he's good value in my opinion.

    On another note imagine 18 year old Wayne's price on the index. Could he have been £20+?

  • @Tom77 obviously he's not all about goals, he's so much more than just goals, but he has a goal in him and he loves getting into shooting positions and has a lethal shot, that's what makes him a good PB prospect, remember he's only played 220min in the league this season and still has
    the most assists in europes top leagues, plus a goal, plus created most chances in Dortmund's games even in a few of the games he's only played 20-30min, and surely he's going to be transfer speculation galore come December if he continues.

  • @Andy-M city have a buy back clause in him - if hes going anywhere it will most likely be back to them but I cant imagine him moving anywhere any time soon. City will be happy for him to be getting as many minutes as possible at Dortmund.

    Id love to be proven wrong but I worry hes just the latest kid to be hyped up by the media without too much substance.

    lets not forget Adnan Januzaj was the best best thing a few years ago and now look at him. Sancho is only 18 and if he doesnt keep his feet on the ground it could all come crashing down. Like anyone on there though, no one actually knows whats down the line so its all guess work..

  • @Wilba yes I know mate, I actually wrote that earlier in this topic, I actually wrote speculation, he doesn't need to move club to create MB 😁

    How much mb has he won?

  • @Wilba Apparently City have the right to match any offer made to Dortmund for him not a default buyback clause so there can still be a bidding war, and obviously Sancho will have a say.

    It took Januzaj FIVE seasons to contribute to the same number of goals Sancho already has this season so I would say that are not very comparable. Jadon is clearly the better talent.

  • @Tom77 ask again in January

  • @PB-man I agree that he looks a very talented, All im saying (and basing hoping that less experienced investers and new traders will read this) is that jumping in at the price he currently is should involve a lot of caution.

    As @Andy-M said hes only played 220 minutes and hes often come on when oppos are tired/the game has become stretched.

    Im English and hope as much as anyone that he develops to be one of the best in the world but lets judge him when hes done it at least over the course of a season and in the champs league as well

    re the Januzaj comparison I was just suggesting how when he burst onto the scene x years ago and scored a few for united as an 18 year old if FI was around then perhaps this would have happened to him too.

  • @Wilba I think his price is very fair all things considered. He has a three year span to recover from any drop and is young enough to recover pretty easily, certainly less risky than anyone aged 32+ so I would advise new users to invest in him ahead of a lot of other players (Mbappe would be the safest pick on the index imo). His stats as a starter are actually pretty consistent with his sub appearances.

    You are right that Januzaj would have shot up in price when he burst on the scene but I would have avoided him if he was anywhere near Sancho's price. Sancho already has better stats than Januzaj has produced in any season of his career (although Adnan is still only 23 and did score at the World Cup so I think he could come good at some point).

    I would say there's not a lot of risk and a huge upside with Sancho at his current price.

  • @Wilba I'm a Manchester United fan and I'll confirm that for me there is zero comparison, Januzaj looked amazing but seemed to lose the ball or cross to no man's land more often than not, and the confidence levels are like 2 different planet's mate, just the confidence to move from Manchester city to a different country at such a young age is not normal for an English player.

  • @Andy-M completely agree, unfortunately theres very few that can deal with United, no doubt if sancho came through the ranks at united we would find a way of making him lose his confidence - especially with Mou at the helm ha!

    re the comparison I was only referring to the start of his career when in his first start for United he scored 2 and we came from 1-0 down to win 2-1 and retrospectively what that would have done to his FI price, the hype, the media attention etc etc I was in no way comparing to the two of them as players, only that they both hit the ground running in senior football.

    Top and bottom is Sancho looks absolutely class so lets just hope he doesnt find his way back to City ;)

  • @Wilba fortunately he has his head screwed on so think he'll be staying at Dortmund, why go to city bench from a possible starter every game in a huge club that sits top of Bundesliga and playing in CL.

  • As an investment i would look at it this way, 3 years yeah, so I am a bit biased becuase I hold Rashford but he is £4.38 and still only 20 ,plays for Man U and starts for England, why as a new invester would you pay £5.68 for Sancho?

  • @Tom77 if it wasn't for Lukaku in the way, I'd be still holding Rashford too.

  • @Andy-M said in Jadon sancho:

    3 year hold.

    With any luck lukaku will be sold.

  • @playingcards1
    I'm sure this is something most traders have struggled with holding hotly tipped youngsters. My question would be though, would you buy Sancho at the moment? If not, then at what price would you, if at all?
