Van de beek off to madrid? Would that put a end to the pogba to madrid rumours.

Agree0 Disagree0

That would be interesting for classico with de jong at Barcelona.

02 Aug 2019 16:23:45
I guess so Jred. Deep pockets they have but its not a bottomless pit.

I like what I've seen of Donny Van deBeek who i also think has the best name in football😀. Great move for him. I thought he was stand out for ajax last season in the games i watched.

Pogba will surely leave.

02 Aug 2019 16:35:05
If it happens I think it is a sign that he stays for one more year. So unless Juve come back in for him we need to know build around him.
For me I would have Mctominy behind Pogba and Fernándes if we can get him in.

02 Aug 2019 16:42:17
That would be my preference brad.

I think we might play 4231 predominantly this year with pogba given a deeper role alongside mctom in the 2.

{Ed004's Note - Thats what I think will happen. I think the plan is for Bruno to sign and he is a hard worker so against top sides he would drop deeper. Or Fred, Matic etc would come in}

Isn’t that what Jose tried to do, and Pogba complained about his defensive duties leading to the breakdown in their relationship.

Why are we still trying to build the team around a player who doesn’t want to be here?

Ole needs to focus on developing a formation and style he wants the team to play. Either Pogba finds a way to fit into this, or he sits on the bench.

I'm getting less convinced by the day that Pogba will leave.

The silence from him and his camp is telling in my opinion. I think he will stay one more year. But then Rooney stayed 5 more years after first saying he wanted to leave. So who knows.

However, if Pogba stays or goes it shouldn't make a difference to what Ole is trying to do. You can't build your team around one player, especially not one who wants to leave. It's dangerous, you're an injury or suspension away from disaster.

I think we will see a pressing 4231 this season, it is what we have seen during preseason and I don't see us moving away from that too often.

I think it is a system that could get the best out of Pogba, it is the same system France used to win the world cup.

Pogba starts off as one of the midfielders in the double pivot, but when in possession he steps forward and acts as one of two free 8's or hybrid No.10/ No.8. With the the wider players pulling wide it gives you five players in attack while leaving five players back in defence.

Very balanced. If Dybala joins to play at No.10 then he will link up well with his friend and former teammate Pogba.

It could be very good.

Ed04 do you still expect us to sign BF, buzzing with our signings so far and I think all going well we have the best back 5 in the league.

{Ed004's Note - Im very hopeful. We have been working on him for a while and have had very strong links. With Madrid signing Donny Van De Beek I expect eriksen to stay. Spurs also seem more keen on Lo Celso}

02 Aug 2019 17:52:42
I think that is the preferred formation jred.
I hope mctom gets the nod straight away over matic.
Ed004 that's exactly what i am hoping for. Dybala would be a bonus.
Mctom greenwood and tuanzabe will be like new signings and will hopefully push some of the old guard out.

{Ed004's Note - The rumours of Smalling and Rojo leaving dont concern me too much if Tuanzebe is being played more. Him and Jones with Bailly back at xmas time is plenty to work with}

02 Aug 2019 18:16:02
Thanks Ed fingers crossed, I really think with this back 5 we are a massively improved team instantly in the attacking sense also, feel the mid my have more confidence and freedom with what's behind them, and set plays were also improving I feel like we never score from corners any more hopefully this will improve looking forward to Sunday now.

02 Aug 2019 18:55:01
I wouldn't be surprised if tuanzebe has a 12 month loan, playing time will be limited so 12 month with EPL (newcastle) is on the cards imo.

02 Aug 2019 19:17:22
I agree jred unless we sell rojo.

02 Aug 2019 19:37:07
Yeah I agree with that too jerd.
