Pogba was anonymous tonight. He got well beaten in air by Boly which is to be expected, but he got shown up by 32 year old Moutinho tonight who had a great game.

Placement, kicking, distribution - where do you want to start? So out of character (and he's earned to right to a few crap games) but so frustrating when the rest of the team are not putting their shift in aswell.

Wolves sussed us out at half time and after that it was only going to be one result.

So, I know I didn't watch last night, but did nobody else?

Let's hope for a Paris / Turin style comeback in Barcelona!

I did but no chat in here

First twenty minutes I was thinking 'oh dear here we go' but then we seemed to dominate the majority of the game and certainly didn't look like we were going to concede again.

For me we simply chose the wrong man up front in Lukaku who predictably offered next to nothing all over the pitch. With Martial or Lingard starting I think we would have scored a couple. But when your team is full of pace and your target man is the opposite, our attacking play breaks down in the final third through lack of movement and options.

I know Barcelona will be a different prospect at home, but we certainly have a chance if both teams play like that again - with a tweak to our personnel.

You've always got a chance at that scoreline. They're a good side but they're not invincible.

McTominay was MoM by a mile and did more in that one game than Matic has done since Christmas.

Glad to see Pogba's done away with his stupid and embarrassing penalty routine... ...1-0

...can't say we're playing well though

Really unconvincing, I'd expect the Hammers to score before the end of this match so we better get another!

Complete crap. A penalty that wasn't a penalty and nothing else. Half-arsed players putting in 60% so they are fit for Tuesday. Terrible stuff.

Didn't expect to win but annoyed so far because Barca are really not that great, they're a one man team.

We'll go out, but City or Liverpool will beat them.

Seems like no-one comes here any more...used to be buzzing on match days, but it's no surprise considering how utter ***** we are these days. Depressing times set to continue for the foreseeable future

Pogba proves again how influential he's 'not'...and why the hell do we still persist with Lingard...totally, totally anonymous!

We really have some clearing out to do, hopefully Ole has the gonads to do it!!

Pogba plays football like a man who lives by Football Manager stats. He'll have a 85% pass completion ratio, but they're all safe, pointless and defensive

He's not the only problem, but he's symptomatic if a team that lacks any leadership. How do you buy that?

The clear out has to include Jones, Young, Sanchez, Rojo and Darmian, plus Lukaku and Pogba if we can get decent money.

You could probably add Matic and Bailly.

Not sure you can, in all honesty Ole had some early success stroking all the big players egos and got a few half decent performances. But Pogba should be performing week in and week out and show up to the big matches.

Would a Roy Keane type really help here? Keeping the egos in check and so on? I doubt it'd work anymore.

Ferguson's distrust of Pogba before he moved to Juve as not being consistent enough looks to be pretty spot on based on his recent form. That's a shame because he is very decent technically and 'can' be a game changing player. No good if it only comes out every 4th or 5th game though. Jesse Lingard has been poor since return from injury and I sense, because of the fuss about Herrera, that a lot of the players' attention has turned to their future beyond this season. Personally I think it's okay for us to be where we are this season with the players/team we have. Not happy with it but when you look at the teams left in the UCL you can see that they have more quality in their players/team than we do.
