I said when we were looking to sign him back that he's not too dissimilar to Balotelli in the way he handles himself.

Differences in action are there but the consequences remain the same - a complete distraction.

As good as he is I really hope we manage to ship him out before the start of next season.

Sir Alex has been right on a lot of things post-retirement. I wonder whether getting him involved in more of the footballing matters would improve things.

The club need to modernise, move forward. SAF, as a great leader, operated in a particular way that served him well but it was very much old school, now modern footballers are moving on from the mentality that worked in distant years gone by. For those who think SAF got everything right there is the racehorse and then there was the Moyes debacle.

SAF has been very ill and I think deserves a fitting happy retirement. We need to look forward not back, the challenge of City is now there, they planned for years ahead and now we have to. There is a similarity to the post Busby years, a hankering to return to what we had before, to listen to Busby’s wisdom and follow it. It took so many years for the club to move forward after Busby so we need to ensure that doesn’t happen now. SAF is part of our past, rightly venerated for what he did but now the planning needs to be driven from the top. Planning and work on the football side should be driven by the aims of the owners, let’s see what that is.

I think SAF has earned his retirement, he has a had a serious illness and it’s time for him to put his feet up and enjoy his family. Even if he was fighting fit, this would echo the Busby shadow that lingered when he moved on, it’s best to let the new guy do things his own way.

Pogba was always a risk and so it has turned out. His agent is canny and making millions for himself and his player.

My biggest issue is that in our heyday Pogba wouldn’t have got away with his behaviour. Keane, Ince, Bruce, Pallister, Hughes, Cantona, the class of ‘92 to name just some, would have ripped his head off. Unfortunately we don’t seem to have big characters who can ‘run’ the dressing room. We need talent but we also need character. How have we ended up with a Captain who doesn’t speak very good English? Klopp has it right - improve your English or you’re out.

yep, saf was right to force young players to sign for his son’s agency. that was definitely the right way to decide which young players got game time.

club tries to sell player in summer. nobody willing to pay the club’s price. player, who was offered for sale, suggests that his future may not be with club that tried to sell him. fans - omg worst oerson ever, no respect, rabble rabble rabble

Danny, taking an opinion from the internet regarding the Pogba thing isn't exactly a smart thing to do.

Remind me to ignore most of the things you post as they appear to be hearsay.

Unfortunately I'd need more than a few words to prove that's it was the reason he left.

Either way, right now I'd rather have Balotelli.

The info about Pogba being frozen out because he didn’t sign for Fergie’s son comes from Ed001.

The info about Pogba being offered to clubs this summer comes from Ed002.

Two of the most well informed people on this site, but I guess you know best Moonie.

Ed002 is quite clearly well informed because a lot of what he says Ian backed up when it happens.

I know all about SAFs flaws but I have no reason to believe 1 persons belief on it without finding evidence elsewhere; to which their is minimal.

Either way I don’t follow the sport as much as I used too and I’m my eyes Pogba is a bigger issue than the like of Balotelli, Payet and Griezmann.
