Poll Results: Would you spend €100+ on Paul Pogba??

 
  • 48% (37)
    Yup, still very young and filled with potential...
  • 51% (39)
    Nah, no CM could be worth that much...

I wonder where he could possibly land overseas with a realistic opportunity to flourish

Its easy to say that in hindsight. What would you say if he turned out to be a bust?

Yeah he's great now in reality. After playing in Italy. But who say's he would have been as great in England?


ADM was great in Spain. Ain't work out the same in England..

But he didn't turn out to be a bust...he turned out to be one of the best midfielders in the world so it ended up being a mistake.


I don't see how this is debatable.
And ADM situation is nowhere near the same as this...that's a bad analogy.

For once i actually agree with Jape laugh.gif

ADM struggled but still pumped out like 15 assists. Imagine if he actually flourished. Pogba was different, dude was hungry for playing time while ADM was already a world class player at Real Madrid.

It's not debatable, it was the right decision at the time.

In hindsight, Pogba turned world class, but you're acting like SAF knew that would happen.

Pogba could have EASILY become another Bojan.

I don't know why it's so difficult for folks to understand that you're all speaking about Pogba AFTER he became world class. AFTER things worked out. At the time of the decision, SAF was 100% right. When you make decisions, sometimes even when you make the right decision, things work out differently than you anticipated, that doesn't make it a bad decision.

post #13845 of 50776
The reason I want to get rid of college soccer is because it is too segmented. The coaching doesn't stand up the way it could through an academy. And i understand the argument that 90% of academy kids won't make it but im not saying skip your education. I mean most people wont' be pro athletes in any sport. Thats just the casualties of the beast really. But college isn't the best place to grow especially when there is the facade of "education" being first.

The thing is we say college has made some good players but we have a HUGE talent pool. We should be a top 25 nation at Soccer. What are we 33 right now? We should be making Messi's and Ronaldos....not happy with hey remember that guy Donovan he was good...he like played at Everton and held his own...what a shining moment for US soccer. That is sad.

Get the kids young. Teach them properly. Continuing molding them through good coaching and high levels of play throughout their life. Make sure they stay on good teams. Soccer isn't like basketball where 1 person can dominate at a bad school. You need good players around you. The system we have now isn't and hasn't been working. We need to try something else if we want to be elite. But i know that its going to be hard to change and would be fine with staying in the low teens of rankings. 15 or 14 maybe would be cool laugh.gif

Memphis would be my guess as Wilson isn't fully fit according to LVG.

By this logic, the Sixers should have never traded Kobe during draft night.

Looking back, they shouldn't have. But who could have guessed Kobe would have turned out to be... Kobe.


Nobody saw Pogba turning into what he is today. Players succeed differently in different leagues, surrounded by different cultures.


For all we know, Pogba could have ended up like Balotelli. Or he could have turned out just as he has. Who are we to say. But Man U is a big enough club to attract Pogba caliber players again.


You guys aren't the Sixers.. You'll be alright.

It was the Hornets, and the deal was already set in place between LA and CHA, so essentially the Hornets picked Kobe for the Lakers cause they knew they were getting Divac in return. It was the Nets who wanted Kobe and ultimately passed "supposedly" due to what Jerry West was telling them about him. But nonetheless you're definitely right with your point.
post #13850 of 50776
Yeah, the Hornets laugh.gif

Don't know why I kept thinking it was the Sixers

Typical instance of United fans trying to rationalize their mistakes. Nothing new here.

"He would have gone to RM or Barcelona eventually, nothing we could do really." FOH, you guys don't know that. Last I checked he's still on Juve's roster, no offer has been accepted yet. Don't tell me you couldn't have used him these last two years where he's been world class and your club has been a dumpster fire.

Surprised I'm in the minority on this one laugh.gif. Oh well,nothing you can change about it now.

Just glad LVG has a different vision for his youth products
post #13854 of 50776
laugh.gif best part is some of you are basically using the "yes, he's world class, but could he have done it on a cold rainy night in Stoke?" argument about Pogba

Oh alright,was hoping to see Memphis back on the wing and see James get the chance but not if he's not fully fit.

Not the biggest fan of Memphis up front laugh.gif

Hey...a cold rainy night in Stoke separates the men from the boys...

The US should be targeting all the kids who play soccer at the parks around the US for fun and not just with their soccer mom league on the weekends.

In such a multi cultural country we have kids who actually come from families that watch soccer and enjoy the game. Central Americans, The Caribbean, Africans, South Americans...these groups lay roots in the US and while most of the kids usually gravitate to the mainstay sports a few always latch onto soccer. Get at them and give them a platform to show out and prove they can really contribute.

You can go to any park in LA, NY, DC, Chicago and find a small group of kids playing. Hell just yesterday I drove past a park up in Harlem and there were three kids working on their game.

Set up something in all the major cities, advertise it through the elementary schools in the area, have them speak to the kids and let them come out and you can see who actually has a good base to start from. You are bound to find someone.

Some damn good Bundesliga match ups tomorrow, too bad its when all my attention will be elsewhere, but atleast right now i can watch me some batman and robin. I got a 2-2 draw for El Clasico tomorrow
