    yes it's really a unique thing, it must have a significance, it is totally unexpected and illogical, everybody in france can't believe he was sold for this much
    even if you assume that blacks are naturally good soccer players :)icon_lol:) like this league want to believe, martial can't be sold for anywhere near the same price as raheem sterling, who has accomplished more than martial, has played for england, has played in a "big" league, has been a starter in a "big" club, and is a local player

    yet martial was sold for way more than sterling

    i know there are other factors like the seasons left in the ongoing contract, but......:icon_eek:

    Frankly - Van Gal must be breaking down mentally after a bad season start, and must be suffering from some sort psychological disorder. There is no other explanation for this stupendous waste of money.

    Arsene Wenger doesn't sound impressed with Man United's new signing:

    http://www.theguardian.com/football...-transfers-questions-80m-anthony-martial-deal

    Wenger picked up Cech for a fraction of what Van Gaal is paying for Martial. Of course, Man United are hoping the teenager will blossom to play a big part in their future whereas Cech's best days are behind him. But even if they don't get that many years out of Cech they are not losing that much. If the unproven teenager doesn't work out at United it will be a major mistake.

    This move is even more ridiculous after looking at these stats:

    Martial has played 8 full matches (90'+) in his career.


    After playing 8 full games,a black is worth 80million€:mad:

    All right, this Martial deal has me completely baffled. I am asking now, because I legitimately wonder: which black striker has been the most successful in recent times and how much was/is he worth? Because with this sum, it seems to me like he would be the world's best black striker, although the odds for that would be... astronomical. The day he ends up in the "black flops" thread can't come fast enough.

    That's 100% true,here's what RMC said about the addons :

    Well considering how other useless blacks like Balotelli got onto that Ballon d'Or shortlist,just because he was black,Man U will end up paying the whole 80€:censored:

    also, it has to be said that it is totally useless to buy a player this young if they pay him this much
    the point of buying an unproven player is to take a gamble, hoping that he will turn out to be a star, so in the end you paid a small amount of money for your star player
    if you pay this much, you might as well buy an accomplished player

    [h=1]Arsene Wenger blames high-quality pitches for lack of world class strikers[/h]
    This guy has gone senile,and not being able to find a striker seems to have affected him quite a bit.
    The problem of course,is a lack of white strikers.:icon_rolleyes:

    There are no white stand-in strikers at the PL in the top teams,and very few in the lower reaches.The starting strikers are white of course...I mean they have to win games after all....but after that they all stockpile useless blacks.Only Chelsea have Falcao,who isn't even strictly white.Arsenal have Walcott,Chelsea have Remy,Tottenham have bought some French black and United now have Martial:lipsrsealed:.These back-ups will never make the grade and even their own managers will loathe to use them.And to top it all off,there seems to be some unwritten rule in the EPL,to only buy from France.There must be decent white strikers out there in Europe,who can develop into top players,but then going down that route will destroy the agenda.Then all that is left is to cry that there are no good strikers left.

    This is the silliest excuse I've ever heard of. One big reason is of course the blatant preference for useless black strikers (except maybe in Spain), but even for Whites - you simply don't see White kids playing pickup football games in the streets the way they used up to 15-20 years ago. There is no spontaneity and fun anymore. Kids that want to play football today have to join a formal club or "academy". There they train 2-3 times a week (often not because they are having fun, but because dad is forcing them) and maybe play 1 game a week, then they go home to play video games on their Playstations - not really a great way for nurturing talents. When I was a kid we played a couple of hours a day almost every day, and from that "gang" of maybe 30-40 boys - several made it to semi-professional level, and one even managed to play professional games. It was our passion. Today is completely different.

    In some formerly White countries not even enrolling a white kid in a formal team is a viable option. These teams tend to be overwhelmed by Black and Arab kids and simply are not a healthy and safe environment for a White boy.

    No wonder most good strikers are coming from countries where you can still see White kids playing football in the streets, countries in Suothern/Eastern Europe (Spain, Portugal, the Balkans) or South America (Argentina, Uruguay). If they are from Western/Northern Europe, they tend to come from small towns or even rural areas.

    While I agree with the rest of the content of your post,I think the one above is really the main factor responsible for this "Striker drought".You can refer to my other posts above,where I've done a fair bit of striker crunching,and the problem is that all the white strikers are taken,and of course jews and their anti-white managers will never agree that there is a demand for more.Exceptions aside(Torres and Soldado),whenever a white striker has been given a chance in the top teams in the EPL,he has delivered,triumphantly.The problem is,as everyone here knows,that white strikers don't get a chance at all,and have to prove themselves elsewhere.And once a white striker succeeds in a team,despite all odds(Harry Kane,),every other white player in that department will be purged off(Borini,Bendtner then and now Wilson at Manu along with Bamford at Chelsea).

    Another reason why White strikers are few in the PL is because they become stagnant once they reach a certain level which is just below "world class",as no one will buy them,thereby depriving other white strikers in the lower leagues of their rightful chance to play in the PL,all in all causing a huge shortage.PL teams will simply look the other way when white strikers from lesser teams outperform every other black striker in the league(some who are paid 10 times more),along with the top white strikers sometimes.Look at Charlie Austin....he can't get an offer from a proper PL team(i.e. one with no chance of being relegated).Graziano Pelle scored 12 goals in his first season in the PL,is going to lead Italy at Euro '16,but can't have a PL team that finished higher even have a sniff at him.

    Those two strikers really would have been perfect for every one of the following,but Arsenal went without buying,Chelsea took Falcao at astronomical wages,Spurs bought a no-name ni* and some dogeater,Man City already have had to depend on an 18 year old black,and I won't even mention ManU.They all chose to go short on numbers,instead of doing the blindingly obvious thing.
