Fergie wanted to keep him, people have short memories.

How about you get behind Pogba (our best player bar DDG) the same way you are urging us tk get behind Jose? He is a young guy who is trying our best and has the ability. Various coaches have had him playing like a world-beater, maybe when we have a different one he will be back to top form.

Certainly, there are no upsides to selling him as it is too late to replace him and there are few midfielders who have talent like he does at his age and the others who do would cost the heaven and earth.

I do find it strange that the club are giving Jose the power to identify DoF targets when he is so obviously disintrested in the club and the city.

As for fans though, the Board should have had the strength to carry on originally. I have been a vocal critic of Mourinho since day 1 and was bitterly disappointed when LVG was bagged to be replaced with JM, it felt (and you confirmed) like an ill-judged knee jerk.

The farce rolls on.

{Ed002's Note - This was a while ago and the club cannot bring in a DoF who can't work with a particular manager - that would be completely dumb.}

Cheers Ed002 that is another really good summary. I find it much easier to stomach that as I was just defending the every day working-class fans who, having had a good think about it, aren't the ones paying for planes or banners.

It really is difficult to see where this all ends but I thank you for giving us 10x more clarity than the club do.

{Ed002's Note - It will end with players moving, a new manager at some point and a Director of Football. The slight issue with the DoF is that the first two targets were picks of Mr Mourinho and although one is not going anywhere, the other could well be open to a discussion - he has already had such a discussion with another EPL side. But if JM were then to be leaving it would then potentially make matters worse for the club. And all of this is down to those that caused the plkans to be scrapped - let's hope they are proud of the results.}

See, whilst I really respect Ed 02's views and knowledge of the gane which far outweighs mine, and you support for the team Angel - how can honest working class Utd fans who sacrifice so much to go to games and pile their money into the club be told for the 4th year in a row that they've just to wait another year again?

Plans don't need to be scrapped, they may need to be brought forward or, if not possible, literally just stick an interim in place. Jose is toxifying the entire club and we are spiralling out of control. People forget that us Utd fans are ordinary people giving up large %s of our wages to support the club. If they made tickets and strips cheaper then maybe we would have patience but paying top price for EVERYTHING whilst not being treated to any level of football at all is unacceptable.

So72

{Ed002's Note - The problem was the club kowtowed to the fans previously when firm plans were in place the were expected by now (actually between 2017 and 2022) to be reaping rewards - and that was when the damage was done. It was not the first time the club had tried to put long-term plans in place. Guardiola was sounded out about the Manchester managerial job in December 2012 whilst he was in the United States and taking a year out after leaving Barcelona.

Mr Mourinho should not have been offered the job when he was and should not have accepted. Critically he did not see MU as a progressive club that would adapt to what he thought they needed, they persuaded him otherwise but in the end his original viewpoint has been found to be correct.

In terms of the role of director of football, the guy the club (and JM) really wanted went elsewhere and is employed elsewhere right now - but is back in talks with another side. A second guy also had the consensus of club and manager behind his recruitment, but he also decided on moving elsewhere.

What you have now is the result of the original decision to give in to the fans.}

If we sell him we will regret it. I reckon Pogba absolutely does want to play for Utd, he doesn't get used to his strength and doesn't like Mourinho - a very common occurence it would seem. The boy has immense talent, he has ego and he bossed the World Cup with France. Whoever replaces Moirinho (when he inevitably gets the sack) will want Pogba in their team!

Pogba doesn't have to move on. He is one of the most talented players on the planet and shows that in flashes. His touch for the goal was world class, his goal midweek was world class. We need to persevere with him, Fred seems to be forming a relationshio with him.

Nobody is going to take 3-0 defeats at home over results. Big teams who play well don't get beat 3-0 at home.

Lets get a manager who encourages the players and has some passion. Dressing room is obviously flat and players have their heads down. New manager and a noise Old Trafford would swiftly turn our fortunes around.

They wouldn't have brought him in then spent silly money and given him ANOTHER 4 years if they didn't believe in him.
