    If that was the case why did they only reverse the decision after Rashford started bringing attention to it?

    Just as he was desperate for Football to restart to distract people, this decision was made purely for PR reasons.

    Pogba going to United has to be one of the worst decisions a player has ever made, wasted so many good years there.

    It didn't make any sense at the time either. They had just finished 5th, were in the EL while Juve had played in a CL final and were winning titles left, right and centre at the time. Like I could have understood if he went to Real or Barca. It was such an odd move. I think maybe he thought he had something to prove or whatever.

    Tbf to him, summer 2016 there was a bit of a buzz about United...Jose has just signed, Ibra was going there...he probably felt the club was getting back to what it was, worked out badly though.

    Money I guess. Everyone got paid, Juventus, agents, his wage etc. His fee was considered massive when they signed him.

    Funny to see this, if you go back many pages ago the narrative was that he's overrated and not as good as Xhaka.

    Now it has changed to Pogba making a mistake to re-sign for United in 2016. Guess it took some people a while to realise his quality. Think @Trilly was one of very few who rated him all the way.

    :lol:

    Myself I doubted his price, not sure I said we have better players. Don’t go back and find any bad posts from me though, don’t need the cringe today.

    Fair enough, I think there's a massive difference between doubting a players quality (i.e. comparing him to being worse than Xhaka - and these were serious posts at the time) and questioning the value of a money.

    Shame, that video missed some of his best goals too. Natural finisher though.

    ...Pepe had a few like this not given...VAR just confirms The FA/refs have an agenda.

    They are all fouls.

    Agreed...just frustration on my part that Arsenal never get the ones were a player quickly turns, gets touched and goes down...it's very annoying, especially with VAR.

    He also wasn't (and still probably wouldn't be) getting into Barca / Real at the time.

    Also re: money, he's all about branding / celebrity, and there are definite advantages to playing in the PL.

    3 years is a bit lengthy at his age but he's proved his worth recently. They're far better with him in the side.

    Agree with @Tir Na Nog, but worried his legs will fall to pieces at any moment for some reason.

    Wish he was 25. Think we'll need an understudy for him at some point.

    A bit long, not sure if it’s a straight 3 year contract or 2 plus the option of a year extension which the club often does. He’s earned it to be fair.

    I just hope the club are planning for his replacement because nobody else can really play the holding role.

    ...Neville and Carragher are terrible when commentating on their own teams, Gary also gets too heated in other matches aswell.
