McGuinness Delighted With Paul Pogba

McGuinness Delighted With Paul Pogba

A little ray of sunshine in these debt-ridden, Cup-embarassment times is the progress of Paul Pogba: United's 16 year old French youngster is settling down and displaying real quality.

'I am really delighted with Paul,' said Academy coach Paul McGuinness.

'It has not been easy for him but at least now all the talk is about his football.'

And boy, that is good. He's strong for a 16-year-old but also quick, he has a powerful shot and his passing is excellent. He lacks the positional sense - of a first-team player but for a 16-year-old he's good in that department as well. Once he fills in he should be knocking on the door of the first team.

I wouldn't rule out Pogba getting some opportunities in the Carling Cup next season, based on what I saw of him in Academy games. In truth, we haven't had an outstanding player coming through for a while now, let's hope he might be one.

He is the only reason I'm not to worried about our midfield. All the top players have been given their chances young (Fabregas, Messi, Rooney etc) and with our midfield he should be getting opportunities sooner rather than later.

He's an awesome player. He may be playing in the first team within the next two to three seasons

The sooner you get a transfer embargo placed on you, the better! Except you won't, simply because it's you!

the first foul was a definate booking, and if you delibratley trip someone up -directly in front of the ref-you deserve to get booked and sent off-Darren,you let the team and thousands of united fans down, you cost the team 2 points and the top spot -stop whinging & own up to your mistake and learnfrom it -dont get me wrong,i'm not anti-united,in fact I'dlove to see utd win the league playing their beutiful game -but at the moment they're not-they have to be honest and admit they are missing tevez,they need to do their best to sign Joe Cole a very simlar type of player only more skillful and would be a perfect foil for rooney and provide whats missing

He may be a very good player in the making, but to expect him to come in and make an impact at the age of 16 might be a tad optimistic. Maybe one for the future but I thought you needed someone to make an impact in the present!
