Pogba's biggest fan
- Dec 6, 2015
That's not true, because it's based on an assumption that Ole can select his team well more often than not, which he doesn't.He hasn't been as good as posters in here claim. Far from it. Versus West Ham in the Carabao he was okayish at best, but in here same claimed MOTM which is just bias.
If he was as good as he is made out to be, he would play. Ole has pressure on him to win matches, if he had a better CM he would play him.
There's no overrating. It wasn't a bad shout to name him as MOTM in a match against West Ham where his peers were either average or below average. His ability to carry the ball out better than his central midfield peers and forward thinking puts him in a position to offer better balance to the side. Ole has made constant errors in throwing game control out the window by putting average performers in the middle (and of late, this includes Pogba). The cry to see VDB given a proper run in midfield isn't being biased or overrating the player, but knowing that he's capable of better performances than what his colleagues have shown when deployed at the role. And yet, his colleagues get many more bites at the cherry than he has.The overrating he gets on here is purely bias and has no root in reality. It's Bailly all over again.
Regardless of his individual trajectory, his relative performance to his peers does not warrant feeding off scraps, which is the point most the posters are making when defending him.I don't dislike the guy, but from what I've seen he ain't any better than the once we've got and shouldn't be playing more than he already his.
Maybe he needs more time to adapt, Fred struggled with the same and got a bit better, maybe that's the case with Donny too.
