Manchester United need Pogba as best they can to save their season.
The greatest hope for Manchester United to recover their season is at the feet of Paul Pogba and his ability plays his best.
Pogba contributed more than other players when United was humiliated by Watford. He succeeded in running for about 20 minutes. And so was his form. If he had played from the start, he might have avoided defeat.
The best passing ability that United has seen since Michael Carrick retired. His ability to pass in Barcelona will match any suggestion, and will certainly stand out in Real Madrid’s midfield.
Pogba is only hit intermittently, and can be focused intermittently, but once determined, it carries the ball with calm and impressive finesse. No one offers the same thing to the squad, nor is an easily secured alternative available for transfer.
After speculation about his willingness to compete for Manchester United, Pogba showed his talent at Vicarage Road. Reversing a couple of seasons of criticism, some are just and some are not enough to create hysteria, but that tells clubs and players the way forward.
