I don't follow the constant explosive media narrative too closely anymore but I did read a post on another forum from a guy who's view I'd trust that the actual commentd aren't exactly as is being portrayed..

Anyway isn't there a much more incendiary story doing the rounds today?
Stick up a link there till we all get a read of this United ITK

Is it the one with the keeper with good hands great positional sense and a hit with the ladies?
Eh  :o

Pogba needs a Roy Keane, [the player], type figure there to keep him focussed. There would be less haircuts. media interviews and dance celebrations and more focus on winning games if he had someone alongside him who had that drive.  United just do not have that type of player in their ranks any more.


He needs a manager/coach that can manage/coach. Not a tactician. He seemed to do fine with France during the summer and at Juventus.

You cannot blame him for everything that goes wrong with the club, Pogba is mature enough to know how to play the game yet he still makes the same mistakes mostly in his own half of the pitch. The lad has enormous talent and should be one of the best players in the world but he isn't.


No - can't blame him for everything that goes wrong at the club but clearly the performances of the players and the team are something to do with him. In this case you have a player who was playing very inconsistently and patchily since he arrived. Mourinho lauded him constantly despite the evidence in front of our faces (I seem to remember being in a small majority of Pogba critics back then). Then for some reason he started criticising the lad. Last summer then he plays like the rolls royce he can be as his team romp to the World Cup. Now he's back looking like a square peg in a round hole. And Mourinho doesn't deserve at the very least a lot of scrutiny on it?

Loyalty is a commendable trait. Misguided loyalty is dangerous though. Mourinho deserves no loyalty from any United supporter. He's not a United man and never will be. This isn't letting the owners and their chief bottle washer off the hook - there's no argument on those toads.

Shaw carried off tonight with what looks like a serious injury. The lad has no luck.

Yes it seems this thread only comes to life for United defeats.

It seems all part of a wider conspiracy

Early days but Dalot looked quality for a 19 year old on debut.

Ya. I'm stopping everyone writing about all the great stuff that's happening.  ::)

Crucial result last night in the context of a sticky enough group. Rashford and Martial starting together - more of this please.

I thought Martial was very good and deserved his goal. Rashford looked like he was trying too hard to impress and needs to relax a bit.
