    Pogba was so wayward yesterday it was almost comic. The way he conceded possession so often and effortlessly would have led to a stewards inquiry in some other sports. Personally I thought he had a very impressive World Cup campaign. Focused, industrious, diligent and skillful.

    Everything in other words you'd expect a player of his stature to deliver. He was also recognized by others as a clear leader in the side. And therein lies the problem.

    In addition to all of his other positive attributes, Pogba is also charismatic. He pulls others into his orbit with ease. So when he is at it others too step up. Unfortunately it works in the other direction too.

    He is now a wholly negative influence in the squad and the club. Yesterday, Mourinho was reported to have described him as a "virus". Whatever about Jose's own failings this analysis is on the money. Get rid. Pronto. And in any way it can be delivered.[/QUOTE]

    It says something these days when a manager, Mark Hughes, is sacked for failing to beat Man Utd .

    Wilf Meeting few of his KPIs

    "I'm so sorry, erm, Mark, well, you know, well, we had to act. Frankly, the final straw...".

    I really dont see why Hughes keeps getting jobs tbh , he's completely out of ideas and the only compliment I could ever give him is that he is possibly slightly a thinking mans version of Steve Bruce.

    For someone who was told by their dad (aged 6, just as the 92-93 season was drawing to a close) ‘you’re a united fan, no arguments’ the proceeding 20 years really did spoil me.

    (Turns on YouTube to watch ‘Very best of King Eric’ one more time).

    I wish I was dead.

    Poor old Man Utd fans. :(

    Must be tough. Maybe we could crowdsource some funds for a holiday or something. Trip to Disney land.

    Funnily enough I met Steve Bruce when he came down to give a speech and trophies/medals to a kids football school that my son was at donkeys years ago. He was dead chatty and gave my son his autograph.The best conversation I had was with Uwe Rossler at man City. In those days the players would go for a drink in the supporters bar after the game and I was standing at the bar waiting to buy a round and he was about two feet away so I said hallo and he asked me if I wanted a drink. I explained I was buying a round and asked him if he wanted one. He did so whilst I was waiting to get served I asked him about east german football and what the difference was like over here. He was well up for the topic and sat down with my mates , told us loads of stuff about no stars in teams in the GDR its was all about the team, the collective etc.Spoke about Ballack and other ex GDR players. Told us about investment in sports etc and then bought everyone a drink and went. Couldnt meet a nicer bloke.

    The Ginger Whinger reckons that Herrera was 'not good enough to play for Utd', although Herrera was candidate for man of the match is his last two starts. The truth is, Scholes doesn't do enough to be a paid pundit - even on BT.
