Many would say that Kante is the better player than Pogba. He certainly helps Pogba play with more freedom. Such a great side though. I think their fluidity comes from having played together regularly since they were kids, and the French academy system tries to teach a certain “philosophy”.
Pavard should be off. That's an awful head injury. One of the worst. He gets smashed in the head so hard he's unconscious before he hits the ground, meaning he can't stop his head from hitting the turf as well. Fine the French team for not subbing him.
Pogba MotM. Played a great game...for me just adds fuel to the hobbit being a shit coach argument.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord deliver us...and while you're at it, a bit of a helping hand with hobbits wouldn't go amiss...
We’re particularly hopeless when it comes to building a midfield. Matic is the only successful midfield signing for the last few years. Jose wanted a classic DM in that style, and he did that well enough for us for at least a couple of seasons. Pogba? I’m not convinced Jose even wanted him, because there was obviously a problem there right from the start. Fred? Who exactly decided to sign Fres? de Beek — same question. These players aren’t all shit — our club just seems incapable of identifying players that will suit our tactics. Maybe in general, but especially in midfield.
