He got dominated by our boy Lemina yesterday haha. I still think we should give it a chance with him if we can get him. There is a chance he can get back on track and be one of the best mids. But right now it sure looks like shit for him.

To be honest, his heart isn’t at all there. No matter how much he’ll say it is. Mourinho has lost that dressing room completely. It’s just one big mess other there and won’t be long before something happens.

I don't think you can put everything on Mou here. Paul sometimes just doesn't perform. He tries his tricks, and, if he fails, just go into standby mode for a good amount of time. If he gets himself going – he is amazing, but when opponents are able to frustrate him – he is useless. He is no teenager anymore, he might never grow up tbh.

Partly true, he didnt perform quite often with us as well. He just seems inconsistent. For his career it's better to be playing a much more conservative role instead of all the 'show boating'. Should stay close to his DM, simple passes and not move that much forward anymore.

Are we talking about the same Pogba? He should have the opposite role. As much freedom as possible in 3 man mid and be a luxury impact Mezzala offensively in transitions. While having the strength and tackling to do some defensive work while roaming.


Defenitely not someone suited to stay close to DM and play simple. He will have more brainfarts and loss of focus then. Should be allowed to expressive him with momentum in more free role.

Reminds me of first few months of our 2015/16, when he played like dog shit, like the rest of the team after losing Vidal, Pirlo, our midfield generals and everyone expected Pogba to take the role. But when you're visibly showing frustration, yelling at teammates, it speaks volume of your character. Hes a luxury player, in an already well working team he can be deciding factor and one of the best midfielders around. But if you are looking for someone to turn the season around, that will carry the team, he aint that player.
He would be amazing here though, iceing on the cake.

He is in wrong team with wrong manager. He would do well at Juve, Barca, Psg. Just like he did for France in the summer.

The media ruined him in uk. I think at Juve he was more grounded and same with France.

Obv his a big ego but i wouldnt side with Mou either. Mou seems finished in my book. He used to get best out of his players and lift them. Its not happening anymore. He has become specialist in failure. Good riddance after mocking other managers in press for years. Karma.

Lets not kid ourselves. Utd beating us was a fluke.

It's the last position he thrived in under Deschamps (he was playing long balls to Mbappe). Mou tried him as a DM, B2B, #10 and on the wing so far. In neither position did he thrive or reach his previous level. I'm getting quite convinced Deschamps used his qualities the best

Report: Mourinho called Pogba 'a virus'
By Football Italia staff

Juventus and Inter are on red alert for Paul Pogba after reports Jose Mourinho called the Manchester United midfielder “a virus.”

The incident is said to have occurred in the dressing room in front of the entire squad after yesterday’s 2-2 Premier League draw with Southampton.

According to The Daily Record’s locker room source, Mourinho turned to Pogba and said: “You don’t play. You don’t respect players and supporters. And you kill the mentality of the good honest people around you.”

The rapport between tactician and player had been patched up a few weeks ago, but seems to have now hit rock bottom.

It all points towards a possible January exit for the World Cup winner, with Juventus and Inter ready to welcome him with open arms.

Juve are the most likely, but Inter are in contention now because they have just hired ex-Juve director general Beppe Marotta.

At Man U.

Lukaku: "Hey mate pass it."

Pogba: "No you're a donkey and you're covered. The whole team's covered actually. Oh shit where'd he come from?"

At Juve.

CR7:: "Stop dribbling and pass to me now."

Pogba: "You got it boss."

Juve wins.

Pogba is insanely overrated. The price tag that he has is stupid. I'd never consider buying him even for the half of the amount that we sold him for.

I would sign him. But there's no way they'd accept such low offer.

Plus I think Mourinho is right on that one. Most of the time he just doesn't care enough to play. His mentality doesn't even fit here.

I think the problem is that he wasted his potential by not being mature enough. He just keeps adding more and more flaws to his game, he's different to the player he was in Juve especially in his early years where he was fearless and eager to improve

Perfect case of a player who is shit because of a shit club and unprofessional environment. He would do amazing for us, if there is the slightest chance to sign him we should be all over it

Reminds me of your opinion of Verratti

But I guess that might be possible
