I thought it'd be useful to separate the analysis of Pogba as a player from the transfer speculation. Anyway, I thought he was excellent last night. I can honestly say that that performance from Athletic against us was the best I've seen anyone play against United (or at least, the best I can remember), yet when Pogba came on he seemed to give us some degree of control over a game, and an opposing team, that seemed uncontrollable. He managed a fair few times in 25 minutes to do what the rest of the team couldn't do once in 90; he kept the ball away from the majestic swarm of the Bilbao side. He looked confident, strong and assured; definitely ready for a starting place imo.
