Is this real?
If so he can feck off for all I care.
Edit: i suppose he's right considering how many of us defended this fraud.
I suspect most United fans, who support the team over any individual player stopped defending him a long time ago. The conclusion is that Pogba fans know even less, they can't even discern between a celebrity whose a footballer and a footballer whose achievements make him one such as Ronaldo or Messi.

For added context that feckin snake lawyer dressed in all designer attire just comes and sits around Pogba's house chatting up his wife and fam. Pogba says she's like family.

And then we have her saying she built Pogba, that he's a brand.

That's the disconnect. She manipulates and puppets a human pretending to , meh maybe actually kind of caring for him, but ultimately the kid is a fng means to wealth for her. And Pogba doesn't see thru it.

I'm kind of worked up thinking more about this now. Am I off base here?

You're not, the problem is with players like Pogba and Lukaku is their levels of entitlement are only comparable to their ego's. The opening line to the show by the lawyer is "Pogba transcends football because he dares to express himself", just think about how fecking stupid that sentence is for one second.

Alright I caved and decided to watch a bit to see how bad it is. It's really fecking crass.

My favourite part so far when Riaola Facetime's Pogba and his lawyer:

Pogba: Wow, what are those glasses? You look like that singer, whats his name?

Lawyer: Elvis?

Pogba: Yeah, Elvis something...

Lingz and Rashy were his pals apparently that would explain a lot recently.

You actually don't see the point do you. When it got to what I perceived as a fake move for the cameras then that was it for me. Showed me what he is. Didn't need to watch anymore. Didn't want to watch anymore. I did give it a try as I wanted to see if he was actually just a misunderstood unlucky player.
Completely fake tick box exercise, filming himself giving 3 big macs to homeless people.

Anyone doing genuine charity work who ends up making a self promotional doc would obviously mention any organisations they were doing charity work for to promote them .

Rashford's PR team always go out of their way to make sure everyone knows the organisations he's working with, but even if it's for brand image, at he's actually doing it.

I just can’t bring myself to watch “Pogmentary”, but I do want to take the opportunity to express my disillusionment with a man, who though brilliant on the football pitch when he’s up for it, is at the bottom of it all just a man who craves attention.

So it seems him and Mourinho fell out over him being in Miami with his wife (while recovering from injury, shocker), Mourinho texts Riaola and asks why Pogba’s on holiday while the rest of the players are training like cnuts at Carrington. Pobga gets all bent out of shape because he says he’s training 3 times a day and he’s different to the other players so he needs to be in Miami or Dubai to recover…

My fecking word Jose was right, I cannot believe we wanted him to stay.
Pogba was a waste of space from the off

At least he issued this when he's not United player anymore.

Imagine being off form at United for a long time, then he had the cheek to have a book coming out. Woahh... what would people say?

I'm almost certain they were thinking Elton John but they're all too far up their own rears to know about anyone but themselves.

And yeah that intro line is absurd. What do you think of the lawyer so far? She seems so transparent to me...I also stopped watching after the first episode

Why not verify if something is real before posting it to cause outrage?

Exactly. Good riddance to him.

This must be getting so many views from people who hate him and adding more money into his pockets.

Then I take back what I said.
It is last two minutes of the first episode where he is saying:" Ever since I was a kid I've wanted to be number one, to win. And it's still the same."
Then he says: "For me, United is the best.. If you can go higher, you do it."
Then video changes from your screen shot to him sitting down and talking.

Like you, I stopped watching after about 3/4 of the first episode, I just can’t do it.

I don’t know who this is for, it feels like a massive ego trip for the player and his family to watch and feel like they’ve ‘made it’ in life.

I watched up until they started talking about him wanting to go into TV or film when he retires and then listened to him speak about as clearly and eloquently as Rain man. I hope he’s planning on going into French media because he’s difficult to like and understand in English.

The lawyer is a joke, she’s riding this train until the wheels fall off. This is her meal ticket and it’s painfully clear to see, but they’re all getting rich so I doubt any of them care. I don’t think she even sees a person, just a money making brand she can take part in.

I found it hugely tasteless when he was talking about a nothing offer of £300k a week and then did some staged filming of him riding in a car to Manchester Arndale, to hand out a couple of Big Macs to 3 homeless people before deciding that was enough generosity for one night and cut the filming.

The whole thing is a badly made fluff piece, it’s painfully transparent.

He says some nice things about Manchester and the club, not sure how genuine they are though.

So that's just a fake subtitle, fair enough, that doesn't sound bad.

He’s already got the money. Amazon don’t pay out on a viewer by viewer basis

I'm sure they get a bonus the more successful a show is. I remember Jeremy Clarkson saying they get bonuses for that

At 29/30, I'd say his days of demand are all but over and he'll find it difficult to attract offers which match his ego .I think he should go to Greece as Narcissus followed by a swift rendition as Icarus.

He's getting another £3m leaving bonus from the club having rinsed us for £70m all in so whatever money he gets from his shitty promo tv series will be chump change.

The nice thing is that his career has gone down the toilet and everyone now knows what a feckless deluded diva he is.

Just went to watch this, it's all in French? Feck that
A lot of it is, but if you change the settings some is in English, and the subtitles are English. When we first put it on, it was all in French with French subtitles, so relieved to find it could be changed. Or on second thoughts...

Ive just watched the first episode. I like Pogba and always have done even when he was in the academy. I don't care what anyone says but he's spent a lot of time in manchester and does love the club and in a perfect world things would have turned out better but we move on and so does he. I wish him all the best.

You'd think by the reaction of many that he had committed a crime.

In episode 4 of 5 Mino and Paul talk about Uniteds contract offer being significantly insufficient. They want more money. Greedy b*tches. In the final episode Paul says United didn't offer him a contract - contradicting himself.

Says he is a United fan... He would fit in perfectly at PSG, City or any of the other sportswashing clubs.

Fergie and Mourinho were right.

He didn't do himself any favors making this ridiculously titled; "POGMENTARY".

We're better off without him.

Best of luck in your future endeavours, Paul.

Almost forgot about the scene where he drops off food. shocked at how pathetic an attempt that was to seem like a good bloke. Just so so strange. If ever you asked a wealthy and out of touch individual to go do some philanthropy this is what it would have looked like.

And yeah just bad programming in general. Pogba is not coherent and his attempts at trying to be philosophical are so bland and soulless. I can easily watch a half dozen episodes of the newest and dumbest reality trash without a problem. But this documentary was painful. It's so so bad in every way. Again all hype no substance

Just watched the series. Sad to see a break-up play so publicly. I always believe it's never a good idea to bring back a contract rebel, it doesn't work and never ends well.

It’s an absolute cringe fest. My girlfriend, who was sat next to me and usually takes little interest in anything United, remarked “what a complete bellend.” Sums it up for me. Won’t miss the guy and have lost even more respect for him for releasing such an unashamedly egotistical piece of propaganda. Jogba back to Italy with all the other Primadonnas.
