Pogba is an Alien

Pogba's passing range, vision and intelligence is levels above anyone else I've seen in recent years. The closest comparison I can think of is KDB but I think Pogba offers more on his day.

Does anyone know someone we could get who plays passes between the lines like this?

Look at the way he takes care of the ball. He's not forcing things, every pass is calculated and has the perfect weight on it but his brain is doing this is milliseconds.

This is why I don't like to see fans comparing Pogba and Bruno, they are totally different players and make up for each other's weaknesses imo.

It's a shame because I really can't see him signing a new deal. Without him, our squad as a whole takes a big drop in quality.

I don't think we are going to agree on this one mate, I think I've been very clear about how to solve the problem in my previous posts. By your logic, you are saying that "If I spend 500m on Mbappe, he should be able to adapt to being a world class CB, RB, or DM because he has the physical attributes. What it sounds like is that you're saying Pogba is somehow deliberately sabotaging the team by playing poorly when there is no evidence for that at all. Let's focus on what we know, not what we dont know. His team mates and his manager seem to think he is a model professional so now we have to ask if some fans have an agenda against our own player.

Bruno has was poor against Burnley but no fan here is questioning his professionalism or suggesting he is taking advantage of the club.

Sorry but that’s a blatant and intentional misinterpretation of my point.

I’m asking Pogba to show more discipline and energy in his role. I’d say he did the former very well for France.

I’m not asking Pogba to play in goal.

Pogba has been poor more often than he’s been good. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves with comparisons with Bruno.

Pogba is not that kind of player. If you want that kind of football you play a Mctominay or a Fred. Pogba is a techy player but he is also a big lanky oaf who is can't accelerate very quickly. Look at his run for the Burnley goal. He has desire to get there but his run is so laboured. Some players are just slow, i.e. Harry Maguire, and some players are more techy, I.e. Berbatov,, Mata, they are not going to get about the pitch in the same way that Rashford or a Keane would do because they impact the game with their brain. Look at how calm Pogba is when he plays those passes. It's not always about energy.

Then he certainly wasn’t worth the money.

Fair enough. I'm not sure what this proves though.

It doesn't correlate with the "big lanky oaf who is can't accelerate very quickly" you described in the above post.

I can't subscribe to the notion that Pogba is not physically gifted. When he puts the effort in he can hold off most in midfield and is terrific in the air. His long legs also eat up the ground when he carries the ball into space.
