Not sure what the hype is but 15 games in he's atrocious for me...
Played him as both a CM and a CCAM and he just doesn't cut it

- Shot is OK, troubles the keeper sometimes but haven't scored with him yet and he's missed 1-2 unmarked headers he should really finish

- Defensively he's very poor which wasn't a huge surprise

- Can't dribble and I constantly find myself losing the ball with him

- And worst of all HE GETS BODIED OFF THE BALL SO EASY

what am I doing wrong smh

    I have zero issues with Pogba.

    I DO NOT know what I am doing wrong with Mbappe though! I want him to work out! Just not finishing like he should. Creates a bit but doesn’t drive it home.

    OK, I hear what you are saying and for the first 15 games for me, I had the same thoughts. Stick with him.

    You will find that he does many of the unspectacular things that make the game. I play him as a Central CM in a 4-1-3-2 with Kante behind him. He will sit there in the middle of the field and with his range he seems to always be in the opponents face. Kante cleans up anything "loose". He then turns on the attack by fielding a very nice ball forward to the attackers and his late runs find him goals more often that you would think.

    He takes some getting used to, but you will eventually find him hard to replace if you have the right expectations for him.

    hmmm how much time should I give him you think, if I'm still frustrated after 30 games or sell or keep going?

    Enjoyed him at CAM with sniper chem style.

    Don't know how you can say he's a bad dribbler. His size, strength, and dribbling make him very good with skill moves.

    Thank you for that @holdenwait that's why I came here to post because obviously I'm doing something wrong. If I knew WHAT I was doing wrong I wouldn't be posting :lol:
    Nainggolan was infinitely better for me and felt stronger on the ball

    I also play him as CCAM and he's the best card I've used this year and one of the best non Icons in the game. His shooting is immense he finishes everything, he can dribble past anyone and with his size is very unique and is as strong as a bull.

    Not sure who you have been using as it certainly isn't this card.

    Easily the best non-icon CM.

    definitely hasn't been that card :lol:

    Just scored 3 in my last 3 with him but had 0 in 20 prior to that including a few shocking misses

    You have possibly got a broken card. This has happened to people in the past and I'm pretty sure I got a broken KDB this year as he was one of the worst CAMs I've used but I see nothing but good reviews on him.

    who knows with those things tbh. I've used a card that was great, sold, bought him back and it's been terrible for me but it just seems stupid that should be a thing.

    Also just a pain in the **** to do that

    gotta keep playing thru it, suffered the same thing with my prime ballack, 1 goal 1 assist in first 17 games, first match he missed the most outrageous sitter ever and i was hating him... now he's sublime, has 20 goals 20 assist almost in 65 games lol

    just stick with it.

    I have just brought him to play him in CM. With kante and futmas matuidi. He is replacing KDB and I can't wait to use him.

    I do have to say matuidi futmas in cm is absolutely amazing

    Pogba the best CM I’ve used this year. Previous FIFA’s he was trash for me but he’s bossing the midfield for me.

    as RCM in a 442 he's on balanced with cover center and get into the box for crosses

    If I switch to a 41212 wide for more attacking he goes CAM with stay forward, get into the box

    I don’t understand what you mean? He’s kinda perfect for an offensive CDM, if you have a more defensive one next to him. Stay in position better than you’d expect from a H/L. Wins headers, tackles, physically too strong for most players and great at playing out from the back. Continues his runs into the box well too.

    Have you tried switching him up to a free role? Instead of holding his pos?

    It helps a lot with him getting freedom to go where ‘he feels right’ to be. A little daring in a 442, but try it out.

    I’ve played so many times against him, but he could never pull something good off...

    Untill now, I have RTTF Fabinho and maybe I will sell him and buy Pogba in this team:

    RTTF Sanchez - Lewandowski - RTTF Pulisic

    Pogba - RTTF James Rodriguez - RTTF Sanches

    Futman Aanholt - VVD 87 - RTTF Tah - Scream Rafinha

    Fährmann

    When I buy Pogba I have to switch Rafinha for Bender and Fährman for OTW Alisson

    not disagreeing he should be a great offensive CDM, just surprised with that stat line a bit
