stone bridge posted a topic in NewsJust days after controversially sporting blue hair during the Manchester derby, Paul Pogba has decided for another new hairstyle. In a social media post, the Manchester United midfielder displayed his new haircut in tribute to animated Japanese character Dragon Ball Z. Pogba recently got slammed by former United player Gary Neville for sporting a blue hairstyle for the clash with neighbours City last weekend. And he is due to receive even more criticism for his latest trim. Last weekend, the former England right back said: ‘I like him, I think he’s a good player, but he doesn’t help himself. ‘If you are a wise individual, you don’t attract attention when things aren’t going your way. Pogba doesn’t work like that. He’s got a big job to do, he’s got to prove he’s serious about his football. ‘Coming here with blue hair today, win it’s fine, lose and that’s going to get mentioned forevermore. It’s ridiculous.’ Meanwhile, Pogba struggled as Manchester United lost 0-1 to relegation zone West Brom on Sunday afternoon at Old Trafford.
stone bridge posted a topic in NewsFormer Arsenal striker, Thierry Henry, has questioned Paul Pogba’s consistency after the Manchester United midfielder endured a miserable afternoon in their 1-0 defeat to West Brom on Sunday. The loss ensured that their rivals, Manchester City, were confirmed Premier League champions. Pogba’s performance was poor compared to last Sunday, when he scored twice to inspire a comeback win against City at The Etihad. Henry, speaking on Sky Sports, said he has learnt a lot about his fellow Frenchman after his latest display. “As soon as the game started, something was weird — the atmosphere of the stadium, the team — it’s so weird from what we saw from that team a week ago. “The commitment, the desire, and I asked if Pogba can do that all the time, the way he played against City. The answer is nope.”
The Blues were on course for a jubilant title party but for the second time in a matter of days they have crumpled to a bitter defeat It was all going so well for Manchester City. Okay, they missed a couple of chances which would have put them at least 3-0 up against their bitterest rivals, but they were just 45 minutes away from clinching the Premier League title all the same. “This Is How It Feels” by Inspiral Carpets, a song long sang by United to taunt City, blared from the PA system as the teams made their way down the tunnel. This is City’s song now. It’s their league, too. Highlights of their 5-0 win against Liverpool earlier this season played on the big screens, some of the attention already turning to Tuesday’s Champions League clash against the Merseysiders. United, in many senses, were almost in the rearview mirror. All the momentum was building for City. Premier League title done, Champions League comeback next. Party time. And then it all went wrong. Paul Pogba, the man allegedly offered to City in January by his rogue agent, scored twice in 97 seconds to bring United back to life. He has rightly been criticised for a number of half-hearted performances in a red shirt this season, and he was no better in the first half, but he stepped up here. His team followed his lead, and soon they took it. Chris Smalling, who looked so helpless as Vincent Kompany smashed past him to head in City’s opener, now ghosted in behind Kompany, and away from Nicolas Otamendi, to volley in to give City the lead. Pep Guardiola, who had left some of his most reliable performers on the bench with Tuesday in mind, did not see a reaction from his side and rolled the dice. Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus on. Sergio Aguero not long after. But it was not enough. Back at the end of the first half, Raheem Sterling’s two misses were disappointing from a City point of view, but looked far from decisive. Thanks to United’s most unlikely of comebacks, they turned out to be fatal. Not for City’s titles hopes, surely, and not necessarily for the Liverpool game, but this will be a defeat which will live long in the memory for all the wrong reasons. Yes, City will still win the league, although this defeat means they now need two more wins to get the job done at last. It really should have been today. Had David De Gea not tipped over Aguero’s last-minute header, and Sterling not somehow contrived to bundle against a post from a matter of yards, City would have at least had a draw, affording them the chance to win it at Wembley next weekend. After two brutal defeats in the space of a few days, City now need to rally themselves and get back on track. Keep the champagne on ice.
stone bridge posted a topic in SportsPremier League giants, Manchester United, are reportedly willing to sell Paul Pogba in order to fund a £200m summer spending spree. Jose Mourinho has in the past made it clear that he wants United to bringing in more big names if they are to compete with rivals Manchester City next season. The 25-year-old, who the Red Devil broke the world transfer record to sign for £89m in 2016, has been in-and-out of the team in recent weeks due to lingering bad blood with manager. And British media, Mirror, report the Frenchman could be sold so Mourinho could strengthen across the pitch. The pair have “barely spoken for weeks” — and Pogba, 25, started both legs of the Champions League last-16 clash with Sevilla on the bench. The Frenchman stated clearly while speaking with Argentine TV channel TyC Sports that he would love to play in the same team with Neymar.
stone bridge posted a topic in SportsFrance coach Didier Deschamps on Monday said that Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba “can’t be happy” with his current situation at Old Trafford. Pogba was an unused substitute in United’s FA Cup win over Brighton on Saturday, after being left out of the starting line-up when Jose Mourinho’s side were dumped out of the Champions League by Sevilla. The 25-year-old is with Deschamps’ France squad ahead of their World Cup warm-up friendlies against Colombia and Russia. “I haven’t discussed it will Paul, I’m sure I’ll know more about it,” said Deschamps. “But obviously this isn’t a situation he’s appreciating in relation to everything that he’s done. He can’t be happy with what he’s going through at the moment with his club. “I have a lot of talks with players to interact with them and understand their feelings.” Pogba has started just 24 matches for United this season, with manager Mourinho preferring Marouane Fellaini and youngster Scott McTominay to the former world’s most expensive player in recent weeks. Deschamps’ France, one of the favourites for the World Cup in Russia, face Colombia in Paris on Friday before travelling for a match in St Petersburg on March 27.
stone bridge posted a topic in SportsManchester City boss, Pep Guardiola said he would like Paul Pogba to play in next week’s Manchester derby at Old Trafford. Guardiola also said he does not believe the France midfielder wants Manchester City players to be struck down by injury. Pogba got a three-match ban for treading on Hector Bellerin during Saturday’s pulsating 3-1 win at Arsenal. He becomes a significant blow for Jose Mourinho with City next on the agenda in the Premier League. City restored their eight-point lead over Mourinho’s men at the summit on Sunday when David Silva’s 83rd-minute volley sealed a 2-1 win over West Ham. Pogba had earlier told the BBC’s Football Focus he hoped Manchester City would “get some very important players injured.” Speaking after the West Ham win, Guardiola said, “Did he say that? Hopefully we don’t have injuries. “I would like it if Paul could play against us because I like to face the teams with the best players possible to see if we are able to beat them. “In the end, I think it was an expression. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t want other players to get injured.
