    He had to throw a few misdirects at us mortals lest we know he's actually from the future. ;)

    Who do you think was better than him at the World Cup?

  3. Fortitude replied to the thread Griezmann booed by Atletico fans.

    He's self-involved when it comes to social media, but he is absolutely selfless for his teams and teammates, which is quite the paradox. He's one of very few players who have truly impressed me this World Cup because he is always potent and the...

    The irony of Neymar going to PSG to be the de facto star man and then having his limelight ripped away from him by 19yr old World Cup winner Mbappe who many see as the truer successor to the BPITW crown, cannot go amiss.

    Barely put a foot wrong all tournament and his engine is something else. To have had to put in that many hard yards and still maintain the level that he has is incredible. I don't think Madrid have any intention of selling him off due to his...

  6. Fortitude replied to the thread Kylian Mbappe.

    I really, really wish people would stop saying this or comparing him to Ronaldo, who was levels above Mbappe to the point where it belittles a very good player in his own right to be mentioned in the same breath for no good reason. Up until...

    World Cup winner. Scorer 'of goal' WC final. His head is either gonna be up there in the clouds or he'll be a more mature player. There's no way he remains as he was.

  8. Fortitude replied to the thread Kane vs. Lukaku (WC edition.).

    Both had average tournaments in the end. Disappointing.

    Pogba has played next to Matić numerous times on a base of 2. Your argument would be more valid if we played him exclusively as an attack-minded midfielder but we haven't. It's just that he hasn't looked comfortable in that two for us or like he...

    I don't think it's that - transpose this maturity to him in a role further forward and there'd still be a difference in what we've seen and what he's been delivering. Pogba having a clear vision of the pitch in both directions and his spatials,...

    I'm one of his biggest critics on the site, but he's won me over with his performances this World Cup.

  12. Fortitude replied to the thread Is Paul Pogba coming of age in this tournament?.

    It's not as simple as different role different level of performance. Pogba is clearly making the clear consensus correct plays when on the ball, choosing when to play short, when to go long, when to run with the ball with maturity and...

    Coming of age has nothing to do with talent, rather it's about doing what the team needs, being mature, disciplined and focused on the task at hand. Pogba played like a captain today, marshalling others and being the player making the sensible,...

    Ronaldo went into the WC of '98 carrying a knee injury. He played the tournament with it, but he was not 100%.
