    Maybe it's all taken a toll on him mentally and he needs to take some time off to get his head back in the game. Wouldn't be too worried just yet.

    I hope he is, if you know what I mean, but I'm afraid that's not the case. I'll refrain from further comments until we know more.

    There's something weird about this. Pogba needs to toughen up.

    feck him. He's not bigger than the team and should be treated as such like fergy used to do. If it means we have to get rid in the summer then so be it. Clearly he's not up to the task and I know he's a fantastic player on his day but maybe it's better for the team if we cut loose.

    That's quite a leap from being ill to 'let's get rid.'

    They didn't stay overnight at the hotel like usual. He probably didn't fancy a battle away at Huddersfield. If the game was at Old Trafford he'd have been fine.

    If he misses our two biggest games of the season this week then I think we can start to worry, but right now let's just leave it? No point getting worked up.

    He'll be back against Sevilla and the drama queens will feel silly.

    It might.

    Possible scenarios -

    1. Pogba realizes that enough's enough and he needs to up his game in order to make it at Man Utd.

    2. Pogba forces a transfer to Real and we get somewhere between 70 and 100m and then build a proper midfield that isn't constantly having to tactically fit in the anomalous figure of Pogba.

    If he stays, I think he will now up his game, if he leaves, as much as I like watching him at times, I wouldn't be that bothered at this point.

    There is more to this than illness I think. Something's not right.

    Can't help but feel like something is not right. Still hope that there's nothing into it and that he's well enough to play on wednesday.

    Yep, his immune system just isn't United-quality, it seems.

    Can't people remember that they felt the same on Martial last season and it all proved to nonsense ?

    Bit cryptic from Mourinho, imo.

    But hopefully (& probably) he is just sick and will be back in the team for Sevilla.

    It's the way he acts on and off the pitch that makes it seem like he doesn't really care. I don't want it to happen and I really hope he changes his attitude otherwise it's only going to end one way.

    Relax mate. He wasn't feeling well enough and that's it. Mourinho even went through the tactical preparations yesterday and told the players the team and he said Pogba was in the team. It's good to see him taking that responsibility instead of turning up and putting in an abject display which will hinder his teammates.

    Reminds me of when he tore his hamstring and the Caf's resident physios spent the following months talking about how "something's not right" :lol:
    There's a big difference between sulking and being genuinely upset and it looked like the latter.

    Im good mate haha just that it's annoying to see him like this. If he changes his attitude everything will be fine but when he's sulking it's annoying to see and suggests things aren't working out. Obviously Mourinho hasn't been playing him in the right position but that's not an excuse for him to act like this.

    Compartmentalizing your personal and professional life is a great trait to have for people who work in ridiculously high pressure jobs like he does.

    Jose always says that. On match day he doesn't think about those who don't/can't play. Last year was the same.

    Mourinho also probably felt let down after his comments yesterday confirming that he will play.

    He wasn't? Not sure what you're imagining
