I was a critic of his last season but this season I look at who's around him and it almost seems impossible to say anything bad about him.
He wanted to leave and didn't kick up much of a fuss unlike that bafoon Lukaku who is half the player Pogba is.
He's surrounded by average. He looks behind him he sees Mctominay. Guy gave the ball away more in 45 minutes against Wolves than Pogba would in a season. Looks at his other midfield partners and sees a geriatric Serbian and some Brazilian with the worst Brazilian name of all time and absolutely no Brazilian flair. In front of him are two very inconsistent youngsters who really need to step it up.
Side note on Rashford, i'd really like to see him playing smarter. That free kick that he took even if he'd hit it as sweetly as he could it would be a miracle if it went in, in the end it was fecking embarrassing.
As much as I couldn't understand why Pogba took the pen the other day, he'll get no stick from me. If he works less than I'd like, he'll get no stick from me. The players around him are nowhere near his quality and we did nothing to change that this season.
Another sidenote, would love to see Gomes get time ahead of Lingard and Mata. Those two aren't gonna get us top four and you never know Gomes just might but even if he doesn't a year of game time will do no harm to his development.
P.s sorry for the waffle
Should Pogba be immune from criticism
