Hey Ed001 what have you made of Pogba in recent weeks? seems to finally be achieving some consistency.

{Ed001's Note - much improved and actually making a difference now, but still does not do enough in games for my liking. Does all the flashy MOTD clip stuff, but not enough of the actual hard work. You are still very reliant on Herrera doing all the donkey work for him.}

Agree with Ed001. Herrera has played a very important role in Pogba's renaissance.
Pogba is very influential for us now. He seems to be the only player who can pull off the defence splitting pass. He is marauding forward at every opportunity.
Hopefully this continues and Pogba can live up to the expectation.

Ed001, I am just wondering is it possible that this is the kind of player he is and will continue to be as such any team he finds himself in should have a Herrera-like player covering?
Like at Juve he had Vidal, Marchisio and even Khedira and in the French national team Kante and Matiudi.

{Ed001's Note - yes it is what he is, but that for me is why he will never be amongst the best. He is, quite simply, too lazy, and only interested in being a star, not a great. He wants to do the tricks and flicks to look good, rather than doing what it takes to be the best he can be. You can't carry players in every game, they have to be willing to dig in sometimes and he has never shown any desire to do so. If it won't make a highlight reel then he doesn't want to do it.}

He's always struck as a player who needs someone alongside him to do the shovel work so he can move further forward and influence play around the oppositions box. Especially on those driving runs which leaves space behind. He was the same at juventus and is the same for France. I don't think he's going to change his style anytime soon. Problem is Herrera can't do it for a 50-60 game season.

He’s a bit like a kid who wants a pony to go showjumping but doesn’t want to do the mucking out at home. He has been very influential in this run with Ole as manager, assist and goals are up massively, but it’s Herreras presence who’s actually allowed this to happen. Without someone doing the dog work for him he’s poor, with that player alongside him he’s great.

Cheers for the candid reply Ed. I must say, I can't argue with any of the points you raised. Maybe Pogba should see the footage of Rooney's MLS track back and great tackle with the follow up assist, a few times.

{Ed001's Note - good idea that mate. Or Rush's harrying defenders. Or Cruyff's pressing. Anything like that might make him realise how much talent he is wasting.}

I've changed my work terminal password. It's no longer pogbaout18. I'm so fickle.

Just to reply to ed's last response. Do you not think that its a bit of a ticking bomb? He's already clashed with one manager who asked him to do more. Ole's approach has at least got him contributing now. But ole doesn't strike me as someone who will over indulge s player nor excuse someone on not doing everything needed on the pitch. As an example his comments post Fulham regards martial and his defensive work. There may be trouble ahead I feel.


8.) 12 Feb 2019 19:45:58
Do you think that attitude could cause problems down the line? He threw his toys at Jose asking him to work. What's to say that there won't be a repeat in the future. Ole has got the best out of him in an attacking sense. But Ole doesn't seem a fool and will want him to work. As an example look at his post Fulham comments regards martial still having defensive work to do. There maybe trouble ahead.
