Anyone that thinks Carlton Pogba was good in the world cup knows nothing about sport.

He was 6 out of 10.

He betrayed the great TSO. Let's see what he's made of now.

I would imagine that his key stats for Utd are on a par with his stats for those two teams, i.e goals, assists, key passes etc. He has the physicality and ability to be an absolute beast of a player, but not the desire.
He made the serie A team of the season 3 times on the bounce.

For me he's more of a big moments player than a guy who will get on the ball loads and run a game.

To get the best out of him it seems:

- he needs good quality players around him. Without that he overplays and plays his team into trouble

- he needs a defensive structure around him that allows him to float and not worry too much about tracking back

- he needs to have a decent working relationship with his manager. That was fundamentally broken at Utd

All things considered he doesn't seem quite worth the hassle, unless Instagram likes are high on your priority list.

Ya I think I`d go along with that to be honest. He`s certainly done himself no favours of late, wouldn't be surprised to see him up at PSG.

Absolutely. A mandatory drop-off club for the Instagram crew.

SpóirtFest is a very quiet boy these days. Along with 11 league titles and Cook My Sock.

Some lads to dish it out.

It's basically just Crayons and Rebelred keeping the red flag flying high these days.
Another one I retired from here

Are you sure about that..? Any idea when people will start taking you seriously?

It's a bit harsh on you admittedly but trying to reach puberty in middle age is draining everything outta you except being just another PROC gobshyte, ten years plus on PROC you are a seasoned attic dweller, a genuine social misfit.

Hat's off ...smrk
