Doesn’t help with footballers image
I’ve got to say I was hoping this would be of the same standard as all of the All Or Nothing series, but because of the subject matter this was far from it. Does absolutely nothing to help the image of the modern spoilt footballer, and if anything has set them back a bit. Really disappointing and shows the player up for who he really is.

Terrible premise
Four of the five episodes are set last summer, which almost makes you wonder if he was lining up a big transfer last year and wanted this documentary to come out last year... then when that didn't materialise, they rushed out a fifth episode and stuck it out a year later.

Self-indulgent tosh.

There might be a really good documentary about Paul Pogba one day. This isn't it.
Did you enjoy "The Last Dance"? Do you like Football? Have you watched a documentary before? Then give this a miss.

Feels like a real missed opportunity. The show is far far too long, it could & should easily be a 30-40 min film. So many shots & clips are repeated to pad it out into a series. There's the odd bit of animation thrown in to attempt to spice it up, but the vibe of the entire series is just cold. Nothing actually funny or dramatic or revealing happens. Just a loop of stock music & slow mo footage & the odd goal. Like a mid 00s Coca Cola advert or something. The people who shot the doc footage have technically done a really great job, lighting/drone shots etc all great so 1 star felt too unfair. You really feel for the director/editor team. Feels like they will have been forced to stretch it out. Watch literally any 5 minute clip & you've basically seen the entire thing.

It's almost impressive how given the scale of access, licensing & resources available, there's just nothing interesting. It's not fun enough to work as a puff piece for his younger fans, there's not enough substance to watch as an adult. If you know who Paul Pogba is or have read his wikipedia page then there's honestly nothing new. There's a bit where Paul gives some McDonald's to some people sadly experiencing homelessness. That's all I can remember from the first episode. Conversations he has with former & current team mates that feature are harshly edited so you only ever hear what Paul has to say. "we have lost too many games" then the scene is over, with no response or back & forth. In spite of this, Pogba seems like a nice man who loves his family. We know this because the point is hammered home over & over & over again. There's also footage of him dancing & some generic soundbites about wanting to win things.

The only real narrative you're presented with is that Paul Pogba has decided to leave Manchester United Football Club in order to sign for Juventus Football Club on a free transfer. He & his lawyer/agent feel betrayed that the offer to be made the highest paid millionaire on a sports team full of highly paid millionaires was not made soon enough to make him feel "loved."

So by July 2022 once this transfer is confirmed, the entire content of the series is outdated and redundant. You're left frustrated that there's no actual interesting story about his life or career here.....so the viral quotes are all you're left with. His lawyer talking about the importance of emojis and branding. Him, his Lawyer & his Agent talking about wages. Paul, a millionaire, wanting more money and "more love"

Surely this cannot be the intention of the filmmakers, Amazon or Paul's team?

There might be a really good documentary about Paul Pogba one day. This isn't it.

Simply awful.
Here we have a talented player who, for what ever reason, thinks of himself as being worthy of an improved contract offer (which it actually was).
It's a shame he couldn't show that talent consistently, there's a reason SAF didn't try harder to keep a hold of him, corrupted by a greedy fat man.
What type of employee would think he would have earnt such a raise.

He is something special to say 300k is nothing while handing out food to the homeless.

I could only stomach 15 minutes of this rubbish
This is so self interested, egotistical and one sided, I couldn't tolerate it. I loved Paul Pogba, but he was the biggest let down as a United fan. Everything revolved around him, but he simply never put the effort in. It is insulting to consider how much he was paid, and how much he was adored. He let everyone down. This documentary just validates the negativity around him and his appalling attitude. Disappointed.

Garbage
The quality of Amazon original content is (in my opinion) generally excellent. Episode one of this has convinced me that I don't want to watch any more.
Is there a way to score zero stars?

Self important
A true representation of just how life has become for footballers.

Bring back the days of the 90s where players played football to win.

Pogba has no idea what it means to play for Manchester United and has been the epitome of how badly wrong the current regime have got it.

Mr Busby will no doubt be watching down on this nonsense and shaking his head in disgust.

If the circus accompanied Pogba in return for world class performances he’d no doubt be forgive et al Beckham, Best etc.

Best thing about this series is the replaying of Pogba’s Man Utd highlights 2 goals against Swansea (same game) and 2 goals against City (same game) sums up his desire to do well over the past 6 years.
