Di Marzio: First one will be Brazilian Fred, for whom the Red Devils have reached an agreement with Shakhtar for €50 million.
You're right bud... Carrick always did seem to bring out the better performances in Pogba.To be fair if his passing is as good as is said in that article we could do with him playing deep in the Carrick role. We’ve got all rounders, we need someone to unlock the potential of Pogba and our attack just like Carrick did.
Might have helped if we played him in his actual position he stared at the world cup playing at centre mid Utd used to stick him on the right or behind the striker because he was Brazilian and had flair.Oh I shudder at the thought... What a talented player that just didn't suit the EPL. Mind you the league has changed a lot since then.
I think they had been signed pre Anderson but had to stay in Brazil for a few years to sort out work permits.Were the Da Silva twins before or after Anderson? I think after.
From what I’ve read he’s a box to box player but is seen as having the potential to play that deeper role. Fernandinho was also a box to box player for Shakhtar.
With regards to where he plays I’d like to see him in the side ahead of Matic if he’s good enough. I preferred our midfield last season with Herrera and Pogba, we created more and conceded less chances as Herrera was more mobile and energetic, Pogba was also better playing with Herrera.
I hope you haven't crossed the footballing gods by talking of Fellaini in the past tense, and he signs a new dealJust be nice to watch a decent midfielder who can play a ball forward lol hopefully no more Fellani running the ball out of play looking utter clueless.
Don’t worry, Jose will knock those attacking instincts right out of him!Very good read, I do think he will bring an awful lot to the table, crazy to think he could be a box to box midfielder, I thought those days were gone lol can't possibly be asked to defend as well as attack, crazy talk haha
I think Mourinho will use Pogba in a more advanced role because the way he sees the 4-3-3 is basically a 4-2-3-1 as he wants that midfield duo at the base. If Pogba can put up good numbers in attack I think the gaffer will give him the Lampard role.Yeah pretty much mate, he was used as a defensive midfielder up until last year, they had him in the Matic/Fernandinho role but the new gaffer basically moved him further up the field last season and loads of their attacking play went through him, seems very very good at taking the ball in tight spaces, forward passes, through balls, spreading play, got a few assists last year I think and was very good as a link between midfield and attack, Matic sitting, him and Pogba either side in a 3 could work very well.
He is like Herrera but about 10 times as good lol
