The media is making a lot of noise with regards to Pogba wanting to leave. I believe most of us would not mind if he does leave, but would be disappointed to see his talents not come to fruition at United.

Imagine if he had the passion of Keane and the intelligence and vision of Scholes to go with his talent, would had been a deadly combination. At 26yrs and with all that talent, he should have stamped his identity as a world class player by now, but it seems he doesn't have the mentality to do it at United at the moment.

If he does leave, where do you expect him to go? Real Madrid seem to want him and so does he, but he better be prepared for it, knowing how the RM fans can be when you are not performing. Probably a return to Juventus could be a safest option as he is well regarded there and had the most success in his career there.

Who do you guys think we should target if Pogba does leave?


1.) 12 Apr 2019 18:25:47
Someone with energy, desire and passion to play the game. I expect lots of disagrees but I’d say someone like Doucoure of Watford.

2.) 12 Apr 2019 19:28:12
Matt - doucoure is a great shout. I’m a big fan of ndombele from Lyon. Him and Saúl with Fred at the base would be a tasty midfield for me.

3.) 12 Apr 2019 19:46:25
Bruno Fernandes and Saul.

4.) 12 Apr 2019 19:47:37
Pogba hasn’t worked out, let’s move on.

NDombele is impressive and Doucoure is a good watch but the step up will be a big challenge.

5.) 13 Apr 2019 11:58:13
Geoffrey Kondogbia looks like he could be special at a bigger club.

6.) 13 Apr 2019 19:19:08
I’ve said it before. Tielemens at Leicester (on loan from Monaco) would be a good signing. Classy player who seems to have acres of space and time on the ball. Add a Doucoure or Ndombele and we’d have a decent midfield.

7.) 16 Apr 2019 08:23:48
Ndidi from Leicester would be a great signing imo. He looks like he is going to be a great player.



31 Jan 2014 20:26:51
Just heard a rumour we are making a late bid for Kevin Strootman.

Roma are in dire financial state and need cash but, are looking for more than 20 million. United are looking to get him for somewhere in the region of 18 million.


1.) You mean you read a story on caught off sh**e?

2.) Just can't believe this story, or one about Herrera again! Nothing happening tonight and just have to accept it :-(



05 Jan 2014 04:17:47
Exclusive: Manchester United Set To Move For £7m-Rated Wolfsburg Attacker Ivan Perisic and that is according to .

Playing predominantly on the left wing, the 24-year-old can also be used in the middle and in extreme cases on the right hand side too.

we aren't that desparate

What do guys think of Kostas Manolas for the CB position?

I watched a few clips on Youtube and he seems good on the ball, physically strong, has decent pace, good tackler, aerially strong and also seems to be a threat from corners and free kicks in the opposition half. And at 27 he would provide the vital experience to our backline for the next 5yrs or so.

Would you guys be happy with him as one of our CB's?


1.) 10 Jun 2019 10:51:02
Good player with some strong attributes. He’s an upgrade on what we have perhaps bar lindelof so he would improve us. But I think we can go for better in my opinion. I’ve seen people refer to him on twitter as on smalling or jones’s Level which is a joke tbh. I’ve watched a lot of serie A football this year and they have a strong cohort of cbs.

You have koulibaly, skriniar, chiellini, Romagnoli and I would say Manolas/ de vrij as the top 5. I didn’t include bonucci because he’s made a lot of mistakes this year.

The next tier would be Milenkovic, bonucci, Andersen, caldara, acerbi. Demiral has had a great season for Sassuolo so he deserves a mention.

Out of that list, I would take koulibaly (expensive), skriniar (signed a new deal), Romagnoli, Milenkovic or manolas. Andersen looks promising but a step up would be too soon. He’d be better off having one more move to develop more then a big club.

So yes I would be happy with manolas. But at 50m euros, I think there is better out there. If there is potential for a deal to be struck for Dias then I would be all over it.

2.) 10 Jun 2019 11:10:00
No, he isn't good enough. Wan Bissaka and Koulahby would be 2 good buys.

3.) 10 Jun 2019 11:19:12
Same as Park, would definitely improve our defence but for 50m are we seeing a good investment for price?

If we're going to overspend on a CB we atleast need a world class one, Koulibaly would be a better choice.

However, I'd prefer if the club invested in some upcoming defenders who could offer more years to the club and grow partnerships with the rest of the young defence (hopefully wan-bissaka, lindleof and shaw)

4.) 10 Jun 2019 11:24:48
I agree with you Park3lung, but I was wondering given Manolas is a much experienced player could be what we need at the moment to organise our backline.

I am hearing a great deal about Dias who is much younger and has great potential, have you seen him play on a regular basis and do you think he would be able to step up to the PL and to the expectations of our club?

5.) 10 Jun 2019 11:26:01
Nice compilation Park, my personal Pick would be Milenkovic, he is turning 22 this year and he has in my opinion been at par if not even better than Manolas this season. If his development doesn't stagger it stand to reason that by age 27 he would be one of the best center backs in the world. He had a decent world cup and Euro League as well . He has covered the RB position a few times thus showing his versatility. A lot of people I talk to liken him to Vidic, this is probably because they have hardly seen him play yet know he is a serbian linked to utd, thus must be a vidic mould. To me he is more of a VVD than a Vidic. Knows how to use his body very well, has great positional play, wins loads of aerial duels and can pick a long pass successfully unlike smalling :)
I would really like him at Utd, only negative I can think of, (if it can be considered negative) is having a very young CB pairing ie Lindelof and Milen. But then again De Ligt is still a teenager.

6.) 10 Jun 2019 12:32:50
Sorry to disagree with you there Weggy.

Our defence needs an instant fix. We can't go into another season with Smalling and Jones as our most experienced centre backs.

We need an instant fix, and hopefully let one of the two go, although that's unlikely with them recently signing new contracts.

7.) 10 Jun 2019 13:30:11
Agree with wazza if we are serious on wanting to get back to the top teams we need to fix the defence asap.

Another season with this back 5 and we are in for another poor one.

8.) 10 Jun 2019 13:34:59
Wazza, you're right we need an instant fix. But when the only available CB's who are proven we will end up spending crazy money for players who can only offer a few years at the top level before they need replacing.

I would prefer to go young and potential for a few years and build a world class defence from the bottom up. This way we would have (hopefully) a world class back line who know how to play alongside each other in a couple of years.

All comes down to if we honestly think we could compete in the next season or two if we spent 100m on Koulibaly or 50m on Manolas. Or if investing the same money on players such as Ruben Dias or Milenković and allowing them to grow into the team. may be more beneficial long term.

9.) 10 Jun 2019 14:09:55
Manolas is a great player, some excellent attributes. He does have a mistake in him and switches off from time to time. He would be better than all our current defenders bar Lindelof.

It's just a question of do we go for a quick fix or do we try and build something that has more scope.

If we are going for a quick fix then Alderweireld is the obvious solution, a couple of years older than Manolas but Premier League proven and available at half the price.

However, if we are looking longer term then Milenkovic or Dias would be much better options. Although my personal favourite is Romagnoli, although it doesn't look like we have an interest in him.



25 Apr 2019 14:49:54
I do see a few posters suggesting we are not playing to the strengths of some X or Y players or we need to build a team around them, which is crazy.

We first need to adopt a style of play and get players in to fit that system rather than trying to bring in players or play a system to get the best out of a particular player. We need to play to the team's strength.

Unfortunately, for the past couple of years we have been in transition and still are to adopt any consistent style of play with managers coming and going - it's been a total mess.


1.) 25 Apr 2019 15:36:16
When people say we need to build a team around Pogba, what they are really saying is that we should build a team that covers for Pogba’s lack of effort.

This is a player who has the ability to attack, defend, can be an exceptional passer, skilled dribbler, and has the physicality and engine to dominate a game. Pogba has the ability to fit into any midfield, regardless of the system. The fact that he constantly looks like a square peg is solely down to his lack of effort and application.

If Pogba put the work in in every game, he would be one of the top players in the world. Instead, he looks for ways to take the easy option, and wants a role with zero responsibility but all the glory.

2.) 25 Apr 2019 15:55:26
Totally agree, the biggest problem has been our inconsistent recruitment.

Moyes signed two players, Fellini and Mata, both have vastly different styles yet both perform best in the No.10 position. How were they meant to play together? Also both had a lack of pace and mobility.

LvG bought a right mix of players, why sign an injured Falcao when we had RvP? Di Maria was a farce. Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin, and Blind all signed to play in midfield, yet none addressed the lack of energy or movement in midfield. Darmian was signed to take over from Valencia but clearly lacked the physical requirements to play full back in the most physically demanding league in the world. Sign Rojo to play CB almost entirely because he is left footed.

Shaw and Herrera were signed even though LvG admitted he didn't want them, but they were deals the club had mostly agreed under Moyes. What sort of madness is that, sign a sacked managers targets for a manager with a very different style.

Sack LvG, then hire a manager renowned for a preference for players in their late 20's/ early 30's, then argue that his signings don't have "re-sell" value. Currently we have sold nearly 30% of all of our post Sir Alex signings. With that figure to rise significantly over the summer.

This aimless transfer policy for want of a better word is completely responsible for the poor state of our current squad.

3.) 25 Apr 2019 18:32:35
transfer policy was abysmal. but we don't have the scholes type player who can dictate the tempo.

4.) 25 Apr 2019 19:46:37

On Schweinsteiger have you seen the video of Woodward saying that when they saw Schweinsteiger was in the team the opposition teams would be quaking in their boots or something to that effect? It looked genuine.



25 Apr 2019 08:28:16
De Gea's performances of late is a worrying sign for us. He has been the savior for the past several years for us and everyone would probably ignore a mistake here and there, but it's the simple basic things he's been doing wrong of late on a consistent basis.

He seems distracted either by his contract situation or maybe he wants to move on or probably the most worrying thing that he might probably be regressing as a player. What do you guys think?

Would people be happy if we sold him and get someone on par with him and who can also command the box well?


1.) 25 Apr 2019 08:44:53
Times up.

2.) 25 Apr 2019 08:46:58
Seems distracted by external factors. Also herrera and mata leaving is not going to be good for him. May be it is best he moves on if he doesn't feel at home here.

He is the best player and asset we have at the club so it is definitely a huge loss if he leaves.

3.) 25 Apr 2019 08:48:00
I think it's time to move on De Gea.
His heart is not here. He is one of the highest earners in the club which would free up significant wages if he is sold.
We may even get a good fee as well from the likes of PSG or Juventus.

Romero next season and slowly integrating the highly rated Dean Henderson would be a good scenario.

4.) 25 Apr 2019 09:01:37
He’s prob been on Prozac with the shambles he’s bad to deal with in front of him the last 5 years, yes he’s made mistakes but these shots should never be coming in at him in the first place, poor defending, not doing the basics and DDG is getting labelled, is he more inclined to have a go at the defenders and midfielders in front of him, he’s a world class goalkeeper.

5.) 25 Apr 2019 09:13:53
I agree that Romero deserves a chance, he has been very good whenever called upon and his distribution is pretty good as well. Probably selling De Gea now and spending money on improving our defense seems a smart thing to do at this moment, especially when he seems unsettled and we need to get rid of players who are probably not fully committed or have their heart somewhere else.

6.) 25 Apr 2019 10:20:15
time to drop him. he looks woeful at the moment and i think Romero deserves a chance. I think his time is up too. Been wonderful over the last 5 years but its best for his career to move on. Also will save us a huge amount of problems in the future if we are stupid enough to give him the crazy wages he wants.

7.) 25 Apr 2019 10:21:43
Think you have hit the nail in the head WRD. DDG has definitely been out of form this season but it's not going to help his confidence when his goal is peppered every game.



19 Apr 2019 09:30:23
Do you guys feel that United were reluctant too long to make a transition from our traditional way of attacking from the wings to a more modern style of high press, possession based and quick free flowing football? Especially towards Sir Alex's final years, when City were adopting to that sort of attacking style.

With football evolving as a whole and with a lot of teams in the PL adopting a more high press, counter attacking style over the years, we have struggled even against teams in the lower half for some time now.

Who or what do you think is responsible for our lack of transitioning to a more modern style of football, when the top most teams are already playing that way?


1.) 19 Apr 2019 13:37:18
Good question. Well into the tenure of Sir Alex, we started having more trouble in Europe, as the more continental teams would play 3 v 2 in the center of midfield. So the old English style of 4-4-2 with wingers on the flanks was no longer as effective. Queiroz was helpful in helping the team to adapt to the changes in style. But then look at how after Sir Alex retired, we have not only strayed from the club's traditions tactically, but we have had no coherent footballing philosophy at all.

Moyes was too defensively oriented. Rio spoke of it at one point, wondering why so much of training was spent on defending. Moyes had brought his Everton approach to Manchester United. Perhaps he did not have a big enough name to draw prospects like Kroos, Bale, or Fabregas to United.

Then Van Gaal came, who is an excellent manager with a clearly defined philosophy, but was very possession oriented, and fans grew impatient. His period to me is the most debatable of the three, because he was experimental (Rooney in midfield) and he had an eye for players. Tactically I think the team failed in his period for being too static and slow. Perhaps the fluidity would have come had he been given more time. He spread the players out very well, but we did not see enough interchange and movement off the ball.

Then Mourinho comes and we have another change in philosophy. He sets the team out, not to take the initiative, not to create, but to nullify, defend first. That alone put him at odds with our traditions. Add his negativity and it was a relief to see him gone.

But the main point is that without any director of football, any guiding figures from above that guide the club in a clear tactical direction, we have had no progression of developing a team with any continuity. Moyes, defensive, Van Gaal, possession, Mourinho, defensive again. Now Ole, who seems to want to press higher, more like the way you described the best teams nowadays.

Then think about how the players do not fit in, from one manager to the next. How can Smalling excel in a possession based team? How can Blind be very good in a possession based team, but then not get minutes in a Mourinho team?
How can Young excel in a high pressing team? No continuity of a philosophy.

2.) 19 Apr 2019 13:54:40
Good post. For all Oles' talk of playing attacking football, the style hasn't changed. It's basically rebooted mourinho football, the only difference being, we've got more men forward in support of the counter attacks, full backs playing higher etc. If the two games against wolves taught us anything, it's that if a team surrenders possession to us, we're toothless. Nobody can find find the killer pass, there's no invention, nobody actually brave enough on the ball.

Who's responsible? I think it comes down to a lack of vision from the top. No manager as yet, has come in and said 'right, this is how were going to play now'. If you think back to the beginning of klopp, pochettino and guardiolas' first few months in charge, there was a clear and focused new set of ideas being introduced. Ole has experimented with different systems, my only hope is that with the right pre season and some shrewd signings, his vision might become more clear.

3.) 19 Apr 2019 15:19:13
Blame who keeps hiring the managers on why we've drifted from our identity. Some reluctant to admit their out of their depth and yo hand over power.



04 Apr 2019 15:08:45
Would you guys be worried if Pogba left us? There are no doubts about his talents, but he's far too inconsistent and his contributions in matches and over an entire season doesn't measure up to his obvious talents.

He is world class in terms of his abilities, but not in terms of his performances so far. Probably, he needs to be played in a more advanced attacking position and maybe that could work.

Probably next season would be his make or break season with us, provided he stays.


1.) 04 Apr 2019 15:19:13
Can never make up my mind. Just when I think I've given up on him, he pulls out a great display. Don't know if those far and few games are enough to warrant persevering with him. Can't be any passengers. I guess if he stays I'll be happy enough providing there's more consistency in his performances, but if he goes, I'll not be as upset as I thought I would be.

2.) 04 Apr 2019 15:57:53
If you could describe him as a footballer without getting in to any athletic qualities, in my mind anyway, he is remarkably similar to Mesut Özil. Can perfectly execute a range of passes, has immaculate close control and is mecurial on the ball. However, just like Özil he needs to be deployed in a totally free role and looks disinterested when things aren't working for him. This flaky attitude is something Pogba needs to fix, as soon as teams target him and they rightly should he's a key player, he doesn't look up to the challenge of having one or two players tasked with disrupting him. I think to really get the best out of him in the PL, he needs to play in a 'false 10' kind of role with two defensively solid and technically gifted players behind him. Right now there's no one else in the squad who you expect to create something from midfield and teams are free to focus solely on Pogba. It all comes back to squad balance - only one truly creative midfielder stop him and you stop United, only got players who are comfortable on the left wing - can overload the right hand side of defence to suffocate that attacking threat, only got one maybe two good ball playing defenders — close them down let them pass it to Smalling or Young who will smash it away long. It's why I think perhaps some players we won't see the best out of until we have those 4-6 top class editions we really need. Get a right winger and Martial and Shaw will be a lot more dangerous down the left, get someone who can create from deep and Pogba will have much more space to exploit.

3.) 04 Apr 2019 15:44:48
He isn't worth the drama around him.

4.) 04 Apr 2019 16:15:01
My main concern would be how weak we are in midfield and that we can’t afford to lose another player (whether it be him or any other midfielder) . It seems Ander and Juan will be on their way this summer and Matic is near the end of his career. We will need to replace Ander and already need to look at a replacement for Pogba. If Pogba left, we would need to sign at least three new midfielders minimum as I don’t have much faith in Fred, Andreas or Scott. That much change (as.

5.) 04 Apr 2019 16:15:44
Well as the need for a new RB, CB and RW) could have a very negative effect on an already unsettled and unbalanced squad.

6.) 04 Apr 2019 15:50:31
LPU- No I wouldn't lose sleep. On his day he can play outrageous passes and show superhero vision to find a teammate but he doesn't have many of those days. I get the impression that craves attention and has to be the man in the news als not always for his football. On a financial note, he's on big wages and would bring in either a hefty fee or cash plus player deal that would benefit the club onlots of levels. If he stays and proves me wrong, sobeit but I won't hold my breath.

7.) 04 Apr 2019 15:53:42
thing is when pogba turns up we are a totally different team.

but its not just on pogba to be the only player to turn up. but world class players perform every week and that is what sets them aside to the rest and at the minute pogba is not world class

we need to keep our best players selling him would only make us weaker i feel, plus i bet he makes us a mint in merch.

{Ed002's Note - What "merch"?}

8.) 04 Apr 2019 16:25:26
On form he is one of the best players in the world. However, his form wobbles from amazing to awful sometimes within 90 minutes of a game. He doesn't seem to have the mentality to dig deep when needed or work on his game. Which means he is unlikely to ever seriously improve. Add to that he doesn't want to be here and he has the most difficult agent to deal with then it becomes clear that maybe we should allow him to move on if the right deal is available. Either 150m+ or maybe Varane and 40m+. But certainly not Bale or Kroos.

It was bad enough having to deal with the Ronaldo to Madrid circus every summer for 3-4 years. But Ronaldo was worth it. I would rather avoid that sort of distraction for a player such as Pogba.

Sell him and bring in someone who wants to be here, someone who will work on developing their games, someone who'll dig deep and fight when needed.

9.) 04 Apr 2019 16:23:44
Good post Nathaniel. Our lack of midfield depth has really been exposed, especially with Fellaini leaving. Pogba is such a frustrating player. Brilliant one day, poor the next. And when adversity hits the team, he goes from invisible to trying to do too much on his own. He does not seem able to drive the team or dictate solutions by combining, which is what we need from a good center midfielder.

Much of his brilliance is individual in nature - the way he can dribble, shield, turn, shoot, pass and run with the ball. These are all tremendous qualities he possesses. But he does not seem to develop that understanding with players around him to quickly pass and move to play out of pressure. Part of what made Barcelona so good at their peak was not just how good Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, and Busquets were individually, but how good they were collectively.

We don't have that currently with our midfield. Matic has quality but is slow, Herrera is excellent defensively, very committed tactically, intense, but limited offensively, and Pogba's strengths are more individual, and that when he is up to it. They are not a trio that come up with solutions together to different kinds of defensive pressure.

10.) 04 Apr 2019 17:00:24
Imo for pogba tp succeed he needs the right players around him to allow him to be as indulgent as he is on the ball.
So we either sign those players or sell bim.
He needs runners and players with great technical ability around him. We don't have a greizman or mbappe or kante or varane bonucchi pirlo etc all of these complement his weaknesses.
With better players around him he can excel. We have seen that.
He is no bryan robson or roy keane. He will rarely gran a game and win it on his own. He doesn't have that skill set.
But if he wants to move then its not the end of the world. Get a good deal and move on.
If that happens the irony will be us selling the players jose wanted out and chasing the players ed002 says he targeted.

11.) 04 Apr 2019 17:01:38
If a club offers Utd good money for the player then I would take it.
He gives us a 9/ 10 performance in one game followed by a 5/ 10 performance in the next 3 or 4. Players like Keane, Scholes, Beckham, Giggs, Robson, Ince etc were 7/ 10 as standard with a few 9/ 10 performances and hardly never the 5/ 10.
People mention a “false 10” position or a free role for Pogba. That just tells me everything that is wrong with him.
He has the talent and ability to match any player in addition he is powerful, fast and tall.
So why is he not a box to box midfield player that takes the game by the scruff of the neck and just dominate the midfield.
Why couldn’t he go on the pitch against Wolves and say you have Neves and Moutinho but I’m Pogba and I will control the midfield.
All midfield players are pigeonholed as other DM or AM etc it’s nonsense when you have a player of his talent.
He is very frustrating to watch and all the problems with his performances are in his head.

12.) 04 Apr 2019 17:02:55
Hard to disagree with everything above.

On his day he's class, absolutely no doubt about it. Watching him run a game is magical. Unfortunately it's once or twice a season which isn't enough.

People say he's world class and I have to disagree, as mentioned above, World Class players turn up every week. Even players like Christian Eriksen who play a similar position, but do it 7 or 8 times out of 10, have really high passing accuracy, scores goals and controls games. I'd much rather have a player like Eriksen than Pogba. More consistent and less drama.

I'm in the Pogba-out camp and have been for a long time. We'd be much better off without him.

13.) 04 Apr 2019 18:33:42
If he wants to go let him go. We only want players that actually want to be here. He's great on his day, the problem is he doesn't have too many of them. I can see him moving, his agent would love it plenty of money coming his way.

14.) 05 Apr 2019 06:34:13
I personally feel Pogba will excel if we sign top players. When we have players like Martial who rarely makes off the ball runs, it is difficult for Pogba to utilize his vision.

We have seen the pin point passes he spots when Rashford makes those runs in behind the defence.
Those are match winning moments only a few can pull off.
If we have similar attackers on the left and right, I believe Pogba will be a bigger threat as he can find those through balls at will. The team as a whole will be a serious attacking unit.

I also hope that working with Ole teaches him about passion of playing for this beautiful club.

Shappy, I am not convinced regarding the cash exchange deal with Varane. I believe he has never played close to 30 or more league games in the past 5 seasons.
Although his quality is undeniable, the last thing we need is a 100 million defender with exorbitant wages on the treatment table.

Wishful thinking. We have never really sorted things with our RB position and unless we sign someone with experience who can just come and slot straight into the first team, don't think Young is going anywhere. Probably his last year at the club anyway and that's the least we can be happy with.

MonDieu, why go for Kroos? He's already 29. We need to buy young players with pace, power and energy and obviously talent to compete at the top level. Preferably in their mid 20's.

We need to eradicate the quick fix mentality and stop buying the end-of-career type players who are probably looking for a final payday and target younger players with the right attitude and skills.

Welcome Pogba.

He would certainly need to settle in quickly and prove his doubters wrong. All these years playing in Italy and now he has to step up to the big league in the EPL and it does not come any bigger than playing for Manchester United.

This is a real tester for him and hope he excels in this challenge.

Not worth 100m. better players out there for the position we need to fill in. I would rather buy 2-3 quality players for that money. He is not as good as he thinks and a totally overhyped player for me.

I agree with you Ports, but think it would do a world of good for Henderson to play for another PL club without any pressure or expectations and gather some experience first. I think Romero can do the job for the moment provided we strengthen our defense with a CB and RB as well.

With the fees being quoted along with his wages and his worrying injury record recently, I would stay clear of him. Also, there was a rumour that we rejected a cash plus Perisic for Lukaku, if that's true it establishes the fact we are going after young hungry players and building for the future rather than any quick short term fixes.

I agree with you Park3lung, but I was wondering given Manolas is a much experienced player could be what we need at the moment to organise our backline.

I am hearing a great deal about Dias who is much younger and has great potential, have you seen him play on a regular basis and do you think he would be able to step up to the PL and to the expectations of our club?

TRD, the Pogdebate has been done to death on this site.

Why in the first place would you want to build a team around anyone who's heart is somewhere else, doesn't work hard enough and is far too inconsistent?

If you want to slag everyone else for being lazy/ inconsistent, Pogba has been the same as well. There is a serious lack of quality in the squad but Pogba with all the talent isn't making any difference either. And the word responsibility has nothing to do with Pogba.

And you are trying to make it look like our great run under OGS was a one-man Pogba show, which isn't the case. It was the front three along with Herrera and Pogba combined that made the difference. It was indeed the injuries to our front 3 coincided with Herrera not playing that really hurt us.

Yes, Pogba is our most talented midfielder and he has scored goals and provided assists for us and he is a match winner when he plays his game, but most often than not he doesn't seem to have the hunger/ passion to be the best and is far too inconsistent for United's liking.

For me, if he stays he needs to really work hard for the team and really need to step up his own game before looking for lack of quality in others. This coming season would be make/ break for him at United.

Park3lung, Godin? Are you serious? He's 33 now and how do you expect him to cope with the physical demands of the premier league. We really need to stop buying players who are at the end of their careers and concentrate on younger talented players in their mid 20's who are ready to step up.

For the moment, Lindelof seems the only viable option to be the captain (not sure how much of a influence he could have on our current crop though) .
