Pogba was great today, must be said

When his head is right he's a top, top quality player

Big goal from Cavani for United in the Spurs game. Something like 7 PL goals in under 1100 minutes. Maybe not hugely impressive but hes gotten some big ones and if he played more often from the start would probably have more. Must admit a very decent free for a player who still had plenty to offer and was saying that when we were linked in the January too.

I actually think he is just above average bc of the lack of intensity and consistency in his games. He is capable of sublime moments once in a while but those are the exception. He is also already 28 and still plays like the promsiing youngster he was 10 years ago.

Spurs gave him plenty of space, I still cant see this super duper world class player the media will have us know. Already 28 as you said. If Pogba is WC then what is Kova and Kante?

Doesnt happen often enough though and thats what separates world class players from the potential world class players. 

No doubt winning a world cup etc plus trophies at Juventus and United, Pogba has achieved good things in his career but has never truly reached the heights he should have and thats on him more than anything.

If he played like he did today, he would get in any team on the continent probably, but he will probably be average for 3/4 weeks now and churn out one other performance like this before the season ends. Then United fans will go why did we finish so far behind City and think that its purely down the OGS and not buying more top class players (which counts obviously for some of it) when guys like De Gea, Pogba, Martial, Maguire (yes hes overrated but clearly can play better than he has at times this season) have been so inconsistent costing them big points/lack of points from not being at it.

Looking at Reguilon for Spurs, is anyone still unhappy Chilwell was signed instead?

You seen the new forbes list of most valuable clubs? How in the fuck is stinking cheaters like City almost worth 1B more than us? Its a mockery. And even pool is ahead thanks to their recent spells. Udt have gone way down on that list too. Fuck Forbs and their list.

Best clubs for young players: global rankings

 

Issue number 333 of the CIES Football Observatory Weekly Post presents the percentage of domestic league minutes by footballers who had not yet turned 21 at the time of the matches played this season for 999 clubs from 71 top divisions that are currently running worldwide. The highest percentages were recorded for the Danish side FC Nordsjælland (48.9%) among the 30 major European competitions and the Singaporean team Young Lions (47.1%) for the clubs surveyed outside of Europe.

At big-5 league level, the highest figures were measured for Borussia Dortmund (28.5%), followed by three French Ligue 1 teams: OGC Nice (24.3%), AS Monaco (24.1%) and Stade Rennais (20.7%). The greatest proportion of minutes in the other major championships were registered for Wolverhampton (16.2%), FC Barcelona (15.0%) and Hellas Verona (11.7%). At the opposite end, eight teams did not field any U21 player, among which Tottenham and Inter.

The highest percentage overall was observed for FK Metta (88.0%), the team of the Riga’s University of Latvia. U21 footballers played a majority of minutes in two other Latvian top division teams: Valmiera FC and BFC Daugavpils. Ecuador’s club Independiente del Valle (34.3%) and Alger-based Paradou AC (27.8%) lead the table for America and Africa respectively. The average age on the pitch for clubs in the 31 main European leagues are available in the CIES Football Observatory Demographic Atlas.

They have a real shot at catching NUFC, who have crazy hard last 7 games

if SU somehow beats NUFC, Newcastle might lose the next 7

I will do a fucking dance if West Brom beats Leicester next, and they also play West Ham and Pool, so they can do us HUGE solids

wish to hell NUFC had lost to Burnley, as the pressure would really be on then
