    diablored @ 01:54: “Pogba should have been kept happy and negotiated with,”

    Maybe, BUT:

    1) no matter what his potential might be, he couldn’t take playing-time away from Michael Carrick or TheGingerNinja last year because he wasn’t good enough;

    2) there was a deal-in-place in January for him to go to Juventus, set up by his agent; in much the same way the CR7 stayed on for one more year with a deal-in-place to go to RM after the end of the 2009 season; and,

    3) PP had no allegiance to MUFC – he’s a French kid who came to M/C for the money; when “show me the money” didn’t get the answer he liked, he went somewhere else – and he never said that Juve was his “dream”.

    I reckon that when SAF knew that he’d lost PP, then he sorted out the deal with Crewe Alexandra for Nick Powell – for whom playing at OT was “my dream”.

    I’m not crying over spilt milk – and I’m definitely not crying over the way that Ravel Morrison seems to be wasting his natural ability due to his mixed-up notions of “gangsta manhood”. These kids have the opportunity to live-the-dream and it’s up to them how they choose to do it. If they want the money before they’ve proven themselves then it’s good riddance, see ya, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

    Its wrong thatmany people relentlessly blaming Nani, seriously the lad did a brilliant job for us.overall he was magnificent, and if you are interpreting the whole performance of a player for a hand that lasted more than 120 on one single moment them that is ridiculous , god if you are judging him for why he didnt keep the ball at the last minutes of the game then you are all unfair toward the lad.first of all the pass I think came from our right flank, when Nani got the ball he was under intense pressure by three defenders, so he has got no time to decide what to do, perhaps he should make a better decision but nevertheless Fergie shouldn’t slate the boy publically..

    I don’t think Nami should get the blame, people are acting like he didn’t play well when he did. If anything in extra Wooton with his lack of concentration and lazy cross cost us the game. Welbeck was the worst player on the pitch yesterday, he was terrible. The attributes that Welbeck possesses that make him a good player were not on display yesterday.
