    Ye its a good trio, although the region is way below the rest - its not a bad looking all-star team.

    Yeah he's so so good. His passing game is just on a level Pogba can't come close to yet. Reaching Xavi levels in his ability to gets out of a press.

    Would also take Vidal over Pogba ftr, but if it went to 4-3-3 the third midfielder might be Iniesta.

    I ****ing love Pogba. What a player, still underrated for his passing and intelligence. Him over any midfielder atm. There are enough registas in the world to choose between, few forces like him in midfield. And he's only 22.

    Yeah he's a young Yaya Toure. I know we're a little off the running but **** I hope we can sign him.

    It's easy to be revisionist, but we had beasts like Park and Rafael as CM options at the time. Let's be fair - there was no way Pogba was ever going to be worth a game in central midfield ahead of them. Sometimes a club just has to make tough choices.

    Yaya is a proper controlling CM like Modric as well though. Don't know if Pogba is really.

    I don't think Yaya was a controlling midfielder at 22 either.

    Dunno, Pogba's CL performances have been much better than Yaya's. Actually CL performances are a bit of a black mark against almost every Premiership candidate. Just remembering Kompany vs. Barca last year.

    I'm not sure Pogba/Yaya is a great comparison. Like, they get compared because they're both big and black but aren't really similar players at all. Yaya nowadays is far better technically than he is physically. His size is almost incidental.

    Pogba's pretty unique actually. Trying to think of the best comparison I can in the Prem is currently landing me at Sissoko.

    Another big black guy .

    Not the worst shout though, don't think I can do any better. Old Gerrard might not actually be too far off. Has the strength, passing, acceleration and screamers. None of the silk though. Maybe Dembele?
