I'll fuss about Miki when he hits some bad form, it's hard to complain about a player who you don't see playing. He's doing well so far. I have complained about Ibra but he's scoring which is his job, he could be racking up better numbers given his chances and that would make a few of our players numbers look better. As for Rooney I think he's doing well in the last few games.Alfonso Bedoya wrote:Because you don't score points for assists that aren't converted for one thing... if even half of the good chances he created were taken, he'd have a lot more points... but that's beside the point... you don't fuss about Miki, who couldn't even get a game until a couple weeks back, or Ibs who's missed nearly as many as he's scored, or Rooney for that matter, who I defend right along with you, but admit that until recently has been rubbish... but you fuss over Pogba, who's new and learning, and not tearing up the league, but doing well enough to deserve more patience...Lazarus wrote:Amazing I said that very same thing about Ibra and the chances Rooney provided him and nobody wanted to know but now you use the very same argument for Pogba.

Whoscored give him a high rating, for whatever that's worth. They do make the point, which I think someone here has already pointed out, that if Zlatan's finishing were better Pogba would have several more assists.
Why on the Prem fantasy league is he only 39th out of 230 midfielders? Capoue, Son, Zaha, Antonio, Alli, McArthur, Chadli and more all ahead of him.
The main point of my post was the hypocrisy of Bman using the argument that if Ibra had scored the chances Pogba provided then Pogba's stats would be better, when i've been scorned for saying the same thing about Rooney.
As for Pogba he's doing ok and looks like he can be really good show me where i've said different. The fuss seems to be about his fee, i don't care about the money but i do care about the responsibility and pressure it brings.
