Just out of curiosity what do posters think should be done regarding the pogba mourinho situation?

1.) Keep Pogba, Sack Jose (in the hope pogba settles under a new manager) .

2.) Sell Pogba, Back Jose (in the hope mourinho can build a side in his own image with the money) .

3.) Sell Pogba, Sack Jose (fresh start under new manager and rid of a player who would prefer not to be here) .

4.) Keep Pogba, Back Jose (in the hope they can patch things up and we can find form again) .

Personally i don't see 2 and 4 as viable options.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bring back Michael Knighton to do a few kick ups or peeping tom Martin Edwards, it certainly needs shaking up.

Neither really want to be here anyway, so 3 is the only real choice. Backing any player over a manager sets a very dangerous precedent - irrespective of what you think of that manager. Pogba is as good as gone already, so 1 and 4 are out of the equation. Jose clearly does not have the full backing of club management, sonthat also seems an obvious choice.

Get rid of both and start afresh. That would be best all round - but that is a big decision and needs to be taken with a long term view of genuinely rebuilding something that is clearly broken. The fans need to accept this for what it is. The 'demands' for instant success are what is undermining the club now. Mourinho is clearly not the man to rebuild the team, but let's not forget that this is not properly Jose's team.

Putting tactics and playing style aside, he managing a team of players assembled by 4 different managers, each of which had, or has a different philosophy, for want of a better word.

Whoever comes in next will want to continue their way, and that will including shipping some out and bringing new in - and that will inevitably take time.

If the club do anything other than back the manager over the player it sends out a terrible decisive message. A star player can run the club how he wants. It cannot be allowed to happen. The club have to back the manager right now.

Get rid of both and start a new. There is no guarantee pogba will suddenly become the world class talent his price tag suggests. He is very very gifted but his understanding and application of the game is appalling at times. When he is on song he is a joy to watch. But he holds onto the hall too much and tries to cruyff turn in ridiculous areas of the pitch. The wolves goal was his fault because he was pissing about with the ball in the centre circle. He should have been busting a gut to get back and remedy his mistake. Instead he casually jogged. It seems disgraceful to be honest. You can have all the talent in the world but if you can’t do the basics right and lack the work rate, then you will never be the best.

On Jose, I do believe if he was FULLY backed then he has a tried and tested way of success. I’m NOT saying he hasn’t been backed, because he has spent a huge amount and he is not getting a tube out of his own signings. That is unacceptable. But the signings of Alderweireld, perisic and Willian would have made so much difference to this side. Add perhaps a back up striker like perisic and you have a team to challenge.

Question is if the board aren’t willing to back him to the hilt, why offer him the new contract? They knew what they were getting with Jose, i.e a short term fix, then they should have understood all the baggage that comes with him. Now we have a key player who is publicly slating the manager, doesn’t want to be here and was signed for commercial reasons. We have a manager who again doesn’t not want to be here and is peeved off that he has not got what he wants. This is a recipe for disaster. The club need to cut their losses and avoid any further embarrassment and trouble that this will cause. It’s an utter shambles. Not sure where we go from here to be honest with you.

Shag Pogba, avoid Jose, marry Blind.

Tony epulf agree with the blind choice 🙂.

Haha brilliant Danny.

I really want to see the back of both of them now, leaving the game disappointed I can handle almost but these two clowns embarrassing themselves and more importantly embarrassing the club i can’t handle anymore. The should both be ashamed of themselves and remember which club they are representing.

*Tony would agree.
