Why is Pogba still there?

He clearly didn’t want to be there last season. He was itching for a move, stirring the pot and fans were clearly fed up with his attitude and poor performances, as displayed after the final league game.

Does none of the big European clubs want him, rate him or can’t afford him? What’s the story? I would’ve put any money I had on him not being at United this season.
Zidane wanted him for Real. Clubs were miles apart on price.

Because Real wanted to get one the worlds most marketable players at a cut price.

If United had owners and chief executive who run a club to make them better on the field. Pobga would be sold last summer and midfielder and striker would be brought in on Pogbas transfer fee alone.

Nothing surprising about the quality of the game, Tuanzebe did well apart from his mistake for the goal and is now first choice back up to Maguire & Lindelof and given the form of the later it might not be too long before he's first choice. Young again was dreadful, he's finished and has now become a major liability. Rashford & Lingard lacking in confidence although Rashford doesn't look fit, Pereira who doesn't look good enough had started to play his best football of the season before he was taken off.

As for Pogba he was very average, didn't look interested to me and thats not the first time thats happened. As it stands he wants out and doesn't look happy but its a long time between now and the end of the season and things can change. A big problem is that he's the clubs only huge name and sponsors want to see plenty of big names at the club for obvious reasons.

What do you think of James?

I thought he looked really exciting. The energy and enthusiasm he has is in stark contrast to most of the rest of the midfield/forwards. When the Arsenal full back got booked early, it looked an obvious ploy to just get the ball to James early and often to go at him. But just didnt happen.

A great prospect with frightening pace who should be in squad able to be 'broke in' gently. At Utd he finds himself thrown in at the deep end which I dont think he's ready for yet (yes his goals have been good)

I'm delighted with him he's still very raw but has contributed more than any other player in an attacking form. I think they've got a bargain at £18m, Leeds must be kicking themselves as I think they had him for £5m last xmas.

Yes I would agree. Rashford is the same.

Wait till you see, they'll get a result against Liverpool at OT in a couple of weeks.
