Pogba, Hold or sell



  • The main reason for starting this thread is because not that long ago Rooney, Ibrahimavich and Sanchez were the media king darlings and where are they now?

    Also, I am not convinced about Pogba as a player and at his current price seems higher risk than players that are currently performing but at a much lower price, with the potential downside.

    Only my opinion.



  • @Nally said in Pogba, Hold or sell:

    Pogba is the undisputed king of the index for MB and has been king of PB too since Solskjaer came in, I see no reason to sell. Solskjaer has said the team should be built around Pogba and he has a contract until 2022 so even if Madrid etc try to sign him it's very unlikely he'd move this summer.

    Ole knows what to say, when to say it.

    He needed to get Pogba on side... but that was months ago before he was given the proper job. Now he's got it and he's gonna be held accountable to Pogba's seeming inconsistency on the pitch.



  • @Alpilgrim Perfectly put.

    Anyone with a large holding purchased months ago at a much cheaper price might as well hold as mb should reward them.

    Any recent investor with limited funds would be mad to purchase as they will get next to nothing in price appreciation and the mb divis will be barely noticeable with the limited shares held.

    Simple as that really imo.



  • @Dan-The-Man there's literally no way Pulisic will return more Media Divs than Pogba and I hold both so I have no dog in this fight its just very obvious!!



  • @9stevo

    Well, I didn't say he would but what good is 50p in dividends if he drops in value £1?

    Pulisic is all-but guaranteed to rise significantly and if you think Chelsea bought him for his media potential and they aren't going to surround him with a media team, you need to reevaluate.

    Chelsea see Pulisic as the American version of David Beckham. They deliberately paid ridiculous price tag to make him even more appealing to the press. They'll hold a press conference upon his arrival, they will make a huge deal about him in preseason. If he scores just one goal pre-season, they will publicise it. If he gets a girlfriend, they will publicise it. If he crashes his car, styles his hair, whatever, they'll publicise it. Mark my words.

    When the American media go nuts for the lad, the British journalists will see more articles about him and become more interested.



  • @Gazz127

    Can't agree with you there Gazz.

    The point at which you got in on a player... should have no impact on your decision to hold or get out.

    Either from this minute going forward the player will make you money or lose you money.

    If you see a chance to use the money better going forward, do that.



  • @Dan-The-Man the American media have been going mad for him. Here? One day when a few people reported he signed for Chelsea and then nothing. Absolutely no interest in the performances of a crisis club's 50 million signing (they were in a crisis) tells me that other than if he does a step over in his first preseason friendly on a slow news day, he's really not gonna challenge for MB.

    Each club has that one MB magnet. It's Hazard. And if he goes, I don't see the clean cut Pulisic getting media. Probably Zaha if he replaces him or Abraham if he gets a game as he's English. Even Loftus? But not Pulisic. No chance.



  • @Lukeroro Got to agree with you there, I feel the american thing is often made far too much of. I just don't see it with Pulisic at all. I'm not convinced he's all that on the pitch either. Time will tell I suppose.



  • @Lukeroro said in Pogba, Hold or sell:

    @Dan-The-Man the American media have been going mad for him. Here? One day when a few people reported he signed for Chelsea and then nothing.

    You're wrong pal, he won MB a few weeks ago, after scoring in the USA game and he only missed out on it last week because Man Utd played Barcelona on the same day.

    He hasn't even got to Chelsea yet and he's already on everyones radar.

    You'll see.

    Oh and Beckham was clean cut, that's what they like about him.



  • @Long-Haul-Col

    Pogba will rack up media dividends endlessly over the Summer and will continue to be a magnet for investors.

    Buy is my feeling and thinking on will have an to my small holding now..



  • @Dan-The-Man
    He's scored 11 goals in the bundesliga since 2015. For comparison sancho has scored 11 this year.
    Don't see him doing anything at Chelsea that they'll be able to write about tbh.

    He's already the most expensive American in the world and Chelsea's biggest summer signing. Trust me on this one.



  • @Dan-The-Man and there was me thinking they bought him for football reasons?! I find this all very far fetched. The US media can go as nuts for him as they want it won't win him MB as FI uses Brit media sources!



  • @9stevo said in Pogba, Hold or sell:

    @Dan-The-Man and there was me thinking they bought him for football reasons?!

    You were wrong too lol. Don't take my word for it, here's the Chelsea chairmen, telling you it... via the British press.

    https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/1115262/Chelsea-Christian-Pulisic-transfer-US-tour-2019-Bruce-Buck

    Also, Brit media... owned by same people who owns American media.... and they all benefit from him being a star.



  • @Dan-The-Man He's only won it once in the last 6 months if I'm not mistaken and that was in January? Not even close since really. Doesn't bode well. CHO will stay and be a key player for them next season under a different manager possibly. He will take over from Hazard as Chelsea's MB magnet for me.



  • @Cadbury1 said in Pogba, Hold or sell:

    @Dan-The-Man He's only won it once in the last 6 months if I'm not mistaken

    You are indeed mistaken. Lot of that going around today ha. He won it 26 days ago. He hasn't even got here yet.

    Look fellas, my money is in on him. I think you're all well early if you get in on him now but it's your money and I could be mistaken but I've been following him for a long time and I'm already up on him.



  • I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- never sell a Pogba.



  • @Dan-The-Man Well he came 3rd for MB so fair enough but even then it was on a slow news day, he only scored 360. Still don't rate him as a consistent dividend winner though, not by a long shot.



  • @Cadbury1

    Yeah, fair enough, he's not just yet... why would he be?

    My goal is to find the guy with the best chance of becoming a future FI king.

    Think about it.

    • Chelsea's biggest signing.
    • America's most expensive player.
    • Goal scoring attacking midfielder so has decent chance of PB
    • He's only 20
    • And Chelsea's chairmen specifically stating that he was purchased for his media attraction, which is what most traders on here flock to.

    Now.... on a 1x media day, he's probably gonna get 2 out of the 5, but with 5x media days... he's gonna get a whole bunch of MB.

    Will be £8, 6 months from now.... I'd say that's unlikely but will he be £2.50-£3? Doesn't seem out of the realms of possibility.



  • I don't hold Pogba but I just dont see him staying at Utd next season for Uefa cup football. The only way I would hold him at that price would be if I thought there would be a chance he would sign for City.
