He was never going to sign. Doesnít matter who the manager is or how well we were doing. Next phase of the money making machine is a free transfer.

Or he has signed a new deal with another club and ralf knows this so when he said he probably wonít ever play again he meant it. He would have made some bs about him being ready for next season if he was staying

Was he this shit for Juve? Were we tricked by a couple of Youtube highlights?

It's hard to believe he was so absent for them.

It was so exciting when he signed, it should have been the start of something. He's going to leave on a free without anyone really giving a shit (Marlo aside).

At least we'll always have the announcement video. Probably the best we've ever done.

£150m thrown away for absolutely nothing. We should have got rid at least 2 seasons ago and got half of that back.

I think in a different less physical slower league he can shine more. That and he had some top quality players around him. He has all the talent just none of the mental application or attitude .

In a league where he can afford to take a few touches or have slightly more time to think and pick a pass . (Or be protected by prime pirlo, bonucci, chiellini)

Thereís a player in him, but for a team thatís established. He is a very good luxury player to have .

That being saidÖ.heís one of the shit @#%&!s and Iím glad heís going

There's a lot of truth in this but mainly the last bit.

He played in a midfield with Pirlo, Vidal and Marchisio. Arguably the 4th most important player in that 4. Came to Utd and was expected to boss the midfield. He used to drift in and out of games even in the academy / reserve sides.

He always strikes me that because of his size when he was younger he could dominate smaller players without having to put much effort in especially aligned to his undeniable skill and became lazy thinking this would always be the case

Problem is there comes a point when those physical advantages become less apparent and the work rate has to increase to make up for it Ė He just never grasped this and it is way too late in the day for him to ever change.

He wont be missed and should have bee gone years ago

he is still physically dominant. maybe not in a gets-all-over-the-pitch sort of a way, but certainly in a holds-anyone-off sort of a way. his main problem is in his head, though - he is completely unaware of what is going on around him, particularly when the opposition have the ball, but also in terms of when would be a good time to try a little trick. and he is gutless, rather than tireless - which is mental.

He holds them off fine, then spins into trouble and loses it. Fraude totale.

Quite:

In the last 3 seasons he's been "injured" for 454 days, that's 55% of the time (9 month season) where he's off to Dubai or LA to "recover."

I have Keown and Shearer levels of disgust towards Pogba.

In fact, itís worse because I hated those two for the effort and commitment they put in as well as being unpleasant.

Pogba doesnít have a single redeeming feature that I can see.

We've tried this before and got to about 4. Let's try again. Ten decent games (not just moments within a meh game) he's had for us:

* City comeback (a)
* the youth Cup final v chejsea
*already struggling

Correct.

Heís that busy being pleased with himself for holding off an opponent he doesnít notice the other one coming in to pinch the ball off him.

Short sighted bastard.

Remember when he first £#%&!ed off to Dubai and dunk was convinced he was genuinely injured.
