Some of you really need to step away from football and find other hobbies. This thread is RAWK and Bluemoon level embarrassing. The mod's sensationalist title change doesn't help either but I guess it's good for clicks.
Why? Because a player linked with Juventus wears their jersey and the following day his agent links him with Madrid and Pogba has not put to bed these rumors, in fact he said he wants a new challenge?

If he wasn't talking about leaving United since last summer there would be no issue whatsoever with him wearing the Juventus jersey.

Pogba if you are reading this either commit to the club or feck off.

Because
1) his friend and fellow national teammate was diagnosed with coronavirus and he wore his jersey to show solidarity
2) he even went as far as explaining why he wore the jersey
3) you think Pogba is reading this

Between this and the Martial thread, gaming forums since the new Xbox and PlayStation announcements, and social media in general.... I think I've lost my faith in humanity.

Just going to leave this here, guys been at the club 5 minutes

Highlighting the fact that he’s been here such a short time actually means very little and might work in his favor. There’s a reason why ‘honeymoon period’ is a term used in football and I’m sure you know what it means.

It’s easy to be nice to eachother early on, the true test is always mother time.

It really is crazy to see how Pogba makes so many people crazy. I thought United fans were bad with Nani but this is a while other level.
This level trounces everything I have seen so far.
I haven’t followed pogba stuff on here much recently and was a little surprised (nah, it’s the caf). And I thought Martial had it bad :lol:

Bunch of man babies and white knights sitting in their ivory tower salivating at the thought of controversy.

That's shocking, so what if the guy lubbed up and sent arse pics to Chelsea and Man City and took being unprofessional to a different level on his fitness despite being by far the highest paid player at the club, let it go!

He didn't wear the Juve shirt just for fun, he wore it for Matuidi. He had his old shirt laying around (probably swapped/gifted it) so decided to wear it to as a sign of solidarity.

If Pogba was just running around randomly wearing it then fair enough, but he wasn't and clearly stated it so people like you wouldn't get upset... oh.

If he ends up leaving then it is what it is. If he stays and commits then fantastic.

You'd feel a lot better if you stopped reading all the press and BS in between, why stress yourself out stuff thats 99% made up and out of our control anyway?

It even weirder people being more fond of Tevez then the highest goalscorer and a good captain who did anything to help his team. Even took a backseat to playing in the midfield. Most players would bitch and moan about that. Even from there he was still scoring. People are way too hung up on that period. 15 years of service completely ignored or rubbished.

He started off as a midfielder, spent 95% of his time playing there when we needed him as an out-ball in his brief pomp, and wanted to play there so he wasn't going beyond the call.

Anyhow back to the "Let's hope Pogba fecks off soon" thread.

Tevez, no comment.

To be fair to noodle, here’s how a matured adult would behave if his friend gets sick: take out his/her phone, type a nice private message of support with a personal touch and send it over to said friend privately.

Ok maybe if you really want to show your support to him in a public sort of way, a good picture of said friend with maybe a “get well soon my friend” photo would do it.

But if you really really want to create some controversy or make it about yourself then yeah do what Pogba did - wear the shirt, show yourself training hard (because it’s not really about your friend but about you) and then clarify it in the captions.
The mature way is to ignore it and to don't react to "some controversy" out of nothing. Social media is social media, they make money on it.
That's what people don't get these days, times have changed, people are different. Reacting to social media shit is being controlled by the fecken internet. It's sad that you can analyze someone's personality from a social media post and you know jack shit about the guy.

Pogba could very well want to leave? :houllier::lol: He wants out of the club as soon as he can.

And he used the Juventus jersey to wind up the fans and his agent came out about Madrid the following day.

Come on like? Really?
Predictable that you would focus solely on that part of the post, only further highlighting my point.

To make things easier, let's say Pogba 100% wants to leave. Still doesn't mean he wore the jersey to "wind us up" in the midst of this massive crisis. Like I said before, people viewing everything he does through that lens is the issue.

fair play to you. If you’ve major issues with Rooney, then obviously you’re going to feel the way you do about Pogba. No issues with consistency, I get it. I just see how to a footballer a club is a club albeit United is a special one in most regards.

I hate being like this but Manchester United has been such a massive part of my life for 50+ years now it's almost like family to me, you diss my family in any way I just don't forget, I wish I was more goldfish than elephant at times but I ain't.

Fellaini has been diagnosed with the Coronavirus today. Pogba should be coming out with a new video soon.

If he commits his future and gets his head down, him and Bruno will be amazing together! I’d be happy for him to stay.
I’d prefer him gone, to much of a show.Thinks he is bigger than the club and his agent is a whore!

So he's linked with Juventus and wears the jersey and knows it will wind fans up and still posted it?
His agent the next day talks about him moving to Real Madrid.

He wants to leave United. Wake up. Will the fans still defend him if he's at either Juventus or Madrid next year?

I can imagine if he scores against us in the champions league and knocks us out and the fans supporting him will be like. "Its okay we got knocked out by Pogba"
The state of Pogba haters right now can't even take a joke.

Pogba is smart, he knows there are fans like this who is very easily triggered by him. What he wears, says or acts, people will over analyze or criticize him.

He said there will be cheeky ones coming out to condemn this, and we now know which one of you guys are the cheeky ones..

It's a fecking quarantine video, with lindelof in it. Get over it.

I read it as this is the actual proof that his agent was in confrontational with Ed at the beginning of the season. And Pogba knew this all along.

So it's a legitimate concern by fans about how committed he's to United. Now he only allows his Agent to be "less confrontational", whatever the feck that means. 1% less? 99% less?

I'm sure Pogba has told him that months ago, but that's never going to make news because it's a private conversation between the player and his agent, and neither controls the other. Also, it doesn't create drama so the press ain't hearing a peep out of it.

I just don't buy that Pogba is speaking through his manager or his brother, these are people who make their own decisions and Pogba is a hot topic for all those around him, family members will speak for their own without thinking of the fans or ramification, it happens all over the world with all kinds of players and it always unfairly puts pressure on the relationship between player and coach/fans/teammates.

I hope he stays, but some of these toxic fans don't deserve to see a functioning Pogba-Bruno midfield. The vitriol against a guy that is a class act and professional is disgusting, and even worse so when they try to pretend as if he brought it all on himself. He gets criticized if he posts too much on social media and then if he doesn't post enough about the club. The debates about his hair styles, dancing, being called a virus when we all know it was the pot calling the kettle black (and worse, some fans eating it up from the toxic one). The fact is, the team is turning a rough corner, and I think Pogba's first intention was always to come back to United to make the club great again. He might have ambitions to play in Madrid in the future (or even now), but I think it's still more enticing to him to stay and achieve success here before he moves on.

He killed two birds with one stone and is a scummy thing to do. He wants to go to Madrid or return to Juventus, adds fuel to the fire and reignites the rumors.

He could have just releasing a video wishing him well along with a million other ways. He knew it would controversy and released it anyway to be a wind up merchant.

People still defending and his antics. Sorry but not going to flatter his Ego.

Wearing the jersey of a club your linked to is not okay. Victor is not linked to Sampdoria and hasn't expressed his desire to leave United.
Juventus, his former team, already has 3 players infected with Corona virus, and the whole of their squad need to be self-quarantine. Matuidi, his fellow teammates in France, got it in Juventus. So he isn’t allow to pay tribute/support to Juventus/Matuidi wearing his Jersey in training?
No wonder there has been so many criticism on Pogba. Haters always hate.

Imagine our players got infected too, maybe Bruno got it, and Ronaldo wears Bruno’s Man Utd jersey in training to show support, must be big fecking crime to do so.

I'm 200% sure Pogba just told him yesterday. As my sure is 200%, so I'm sure I win.

Agent of big player doesn't speak to his client employer behind the player's back. Otherwise no big player would want him. I'm sure you know that makes more sense.

Or were you also a believer when Lukaku's agent talked about moving to Italy League at that time, that Lukaku didn't know shit about that??
Or when Raiola threw chair at Dortmund mtg to get Mkhi move, Mkhi didn't know about that also??

Which begs the question: why not wear the National team jersey?

He most likely picked a shirt he had at home instead of ordering one (especially during a pandemic).
Maybe they swapped shirts when we last played Juve in '18.
(He hasn't played against Matuidi on the national stage for obvious reasons.)

So where has this come from?
Was Luke in the room when Paul pulled Mino into line or did he hack his phone or was he hiding in the bushes when the conversation took place.
Did Paul or Mino tell Luke that Mino was told to curb it?
Did a source close to the club tell Luke the sensational news.
Or as I suspect,
Luke is blowing it out of his ar$e.

Yeah, if it's that it would be a bit unprofessional.

Edit: sorry if you were being sarcastic. It's a bit hard to tell these days.

Yup, he’s shit stirring. The Pogba defenders must not think he possesses much intelligence to think these things are just ‘run of the mill’ things.
He knows exactly what he’s doing and it is very immature, he knows his future is a constant cause of discussion and so he does these things to create a reaction just as it was when he posted himself smirking on Instagram a few minutes after Mourinho got sacked.
And Lindelof???
Really curious to know what the people all saying it's ok for Pogba to wear a Juventus top were saying when Lukaku wore an Anderlect Jersey earlier in the summer.
Lindelof??
So he's linked with Juventus and wears the jersey and knows it will wind fans up and still posted it?
His agent the next day talks about him moving to Real Madrid.

He wants to leave United. Wake up. Will the fans still defend him if he's at either Juventus or Madrid next year?

I can imagine if he scores against us in the champions league and knocks us out and the fans supporting him will be like. "Its okay we got knocked out by Pogba"
Lindelof can do it?
