Let's do that together then:I don't blame everybody except Pogba, you seem interested in my posts so at least try to read them
The biggest single issue I think has been the fact he’s been partnered with substandard defensive midfielders in his time here.
Yeah but this is my point, who’s behind him? Average or makeshift DM’s that’s who.
It’s not the only reason he hasn’t reached his potential here but to me, imo, we were never going to see the best of him with how we’ve utilised him and who we’ve partnered him with when he’s played (for large parts) in a 2 man midfield.
Firstly, you make it look like he's a world beater whenever he plays for France. I watched last two performances and he was decent at best, without doing much of note. Last game Kante didn't play anyway. If McTominay played for France he would look better too.It’s the single biggest issue and is the reason why more often than not he looks a different player for France next to Kante.
if you think I got angry basing on my posts, you must be new to the Internet!Posters like you get angry, almost like you have a big Pogba poster on your bedroom wall and your furious he hasn't come here and won us the league single handedly.
No, it's YOU who shouts "Pogba will never fulfill his potential playing with those shite players we have!". It's literally screaming from your posts, and it's simply unfair to midfielders (who you call "mediocre","makeshift" and "substandard") who are clearly performing much better than Pogba this season, even though Paul is much more talented.It's hard to have a rational conversation on Pogba or Ole for that matter unless every poster just nods along together and calls them both shite. It's tedious.
Once again I ask, why can't Pogba do that? Clearly he is an attacking midfielder like Bruno, so he should shine with that hard-working midfield behind him, no?Bruno plays well with those mediocre players behind him because for us to function to any level we have to play both Fred and Mctominay in tandem! In order to gain any control in midfield. Which again lends weight to my quite simple observation that we are painfully short on a top level DM.
That's debatable. I disagree because I rate our midfield in Fred - McTominay and you clearly don't. Sure, it would be nice to have a proper DM, but since we're doing pretty good defensively since Pogba was dropped, I'd rather spend money for an attacker.Everybody with an ounce of knowledge about football knows we are crying out for a top DM regardless of Pogba. I'm just pointing out that the acquisition of that type of player improves the team as a whole and the player in isolation.
Building a team is about retaining quality and building on it, choosing players that compliment others within the side. It's not about 'building a team around Pogba' - contrary to popular belief we have never done that.
A DM in this side is more important that a RW. Regardless of Pogba. No doubt in my mind.
