It's a weird one that he came under so much scrutiny for the past season. Started off in fantastic form, then he got injured and the results dipped concurrently. He came back from his injury and carried on from where he left off, games against Newcastle, Watford and Arsenal were some of our best. Got suspended and again the team's overall play stalled. Came back from the suspension and played well yet again (Results weren't great but they were due to other absolute clangers, Smalling staying on injured against Leicester and letting his man score, Jose playing Zlatan at 10 vs Burnley and then he never played again) . His season flipped completely after the Tottenham game in my opinion, absolute terrible performance all round, yet he took the brunt of it. From the outside it seemed him and Jose's relationship was deteriorating. After that the exuberance and flair to his game (his best quality) was diminished barring a few good performances on the run in. Maybe I'm making stuff up but it looked like he had lost his motivation and that was due to his fractured relationship with Jose. I don't blame him either he was used as a scapegoat and sidelined, when he's our most important player.

Pogba is a marked man within the punditry circles. He plays for United, at the time it was a world record fee and he dyes his hair. The three things the old guard can't get their head around! He does things that I'm sure infuriate us all but he's still a class act and will only improve.

The media have these preconceived notions that they tend to rattle off during most games that don't hold up well when scrutinised.

Pogba isn't worth £89 million. Two years ago it was a world record fee. Now you have players like Dembele and Coutinho going for north of £130 million. £89 million doesn't look too shabby.

The main part of his game he needs to improve on is the simple things. He can ping a ball 40 yards, dribble by 2 or 3 defenders, get stuck into a tackle but it's his 10 yard pass that will go astray. Cut out the unnecessary flicks and improve his concentration and there's a world class midfielder in there.

Anyone who watches us every week will see how good he is. It's the pundits that have it in for him.

He’s a y player but as Mumbles says he can be careless with the simple things. The fact we have been offering him to other clubs is worrying. Either he has a bad attitude or Jose isn’t interested in getting the best out of him. He’s looked great for France, how do we get him to move up to that very top level that we know he is capable of?

Shearer said exactly what the issue is and this relates to all the players. For France Pogba is playing really well but he has made the odd mistake when trying to make things happen, but he is not getting slated by the manager (which JM does) he is therefore more relaxed and that is showing in his play.
