There's no intention to make them equivalent.

The issue is that, when it's Pogba we're talking about it's all "oh well, he was great before IN (AN)OTHER TEAM(S) so it must be Jose that's the issue" but, when it's Shaw (who I've pointed out that I have no particular interest in defending) it's all "yeah, well he was always shit so no surprise".
Like I said, I blame the manager for the overall team's performance, not individual players.
But... it's possible that some players don't fit in with a manager's system but they're good players.
It's also possible that the player's doing badly when he shouldn't be - imo this is more likely.

We can be more confident that Jose's not at fault for Shaw, because Shaw was always crap. Just like Jones and Smalling but over a smaller period than those two jokers.
But Shaw's far worse than Jones and Smalling. Anyway...

Pogba, it's quite likely that he's a fucking diva too. but at least he's earned his reputation of being a top player before joining the club
So Mourinho has been great with a terrible Shaw but terrible with a great Pogba?
Based on what we've seen Jose's been at best "alright" with a terrible Shaw so Shaw's still terrible.
Not sure about Pogba, it could be either's fault or both. Jose's hoofball tactics from defence to Lukaku won't suit Pogba, but then Pogba's lack of tactical awareness, poor discipline on the pitch and his me first attitude could both be working against him.

The old "we're in transition" line http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43504631

It all sounds a bit like Gaal's "process"

Gaal was philosophy Sid.
But yeah... Transition is the Wenger way of getting away.

That explains it!!! Why didn't he just say that last season, that would explain the terrible football we've been treated too this season. I mean it's obvious, Pogba is in transition, Sanchez as well. They're transitioning from being worth a lot of money to being worthless...

That is terrible journalism from a terrible paper

Everytging he’s wrote is based on that ONE Ajax game!!!
We had tactics to beat Ajax, a quite fancied team, and we didn’t give them a sniff

"But United supporters who feel like joining their manager in condemning the scapegoats should think about the mechanics of what is actually happening on the pitch."

.....and yet he still has his apologists on here.
