    Paul pogba when he wants to play is unstoppable, hence why he was unstoppable for juve and is currently for France. He will be this year for united now they have ronaldo and pogba won’t want to play * with him in the team. He’ll actually try this year

    He has started very well. Fernandes has that 10 position nailed down and don't know how effective Pogba will be on the left wing though. He flatters to deceive in a midfield two. It seems the only position he can play is on the left of a midfield three. I agree he'll want to do well to impress Ronaldo which says more about himself that he hasn't been able to motivate himself previously. I'll judge him for this season when he puts at least half a season of good perfoances together.

    Too many to name that played in loads of different United teams under Sir Alex.

    Pascal Cygan being an invincible is a mindfuck. Mustafi being a World Cup winner.

    Still canny get my head round Maxwell being one of if not the most successful player ever in regards to major trophies. Average LB and absolutely miles off many of the better left backs of his generation.

    Dunno. Just every time I saw him play he was gash. Might have been good in France but at Man U he was mince.

    Yeah that Man United Anderson wasn't that good. Sonny Anderson was a striker for Lyon, Barcelona , Monaco though, and he was very good. The Man United guy wasn't called Sonny

    Choupo Moting to PSG and Bayern.

    Braithwaite, Kevin Prince Boateng to Barca both average as anything.

    Bebe at Man U.

    Julien Faubert ending up at Real Madrid was a big *.

    Steve McManaman playing for Real Madrid was always a strange one for me.
    Decent player but surprised he made it to that level.

    Barcas recruitment last few years is probably worse than ours, and that's saying something

    Aw he was a star for Liverpool I thought. Brilliant, mazy dribbler at Liverpool. Had to play a more disciplined central role at Madrid but he was a fan's favourite there. He did go downhill big time at Man City though.

    Heskey for England. I know Owen said he loved playing with him. But when you think of all the players around 2002 that he was selected over...Fowler, Sheringham, Cole, Phillips, Sutton...Shearer had retired in the previous campaign. Then he got to play in 2010 World Cup when he was well past his best.

    An infamous one would be Nicklas Bendtner.

    I'd maybe say Balotelli also - but that is debatable given his talent.
