Player's agent supposedly talking to Inter Milan today to get Lozaro loaned to either Werder Bremen or West Ham United until the end of the season.

Moyes says the club are working on two or three things.

My spidey senses look at our injury list and think we have a number of players lined up to sell.

Masuaku injured - linked to Fenerbache, Lyon, Napoli and Marseille
Yarmolenko injured - linked to Turkish league
Antonio injured - Chelsea after Zaha, us linked to Barkley
I think you’re giving them too much credit mate. I have no doubt they’d let Yarmolenko go but I think they are simply scouting the world for loan signings to spend his saved wages on.

They simply can’t see the problem with their approach.

It’s worse than that, they are scouting the grand sum of f*** all, they’re lazy c**** by nature and it’s as simple as having their fave agent mates giving them names of players they can loan or are on a free

You can’t deny Masuaku has a great left foot, maybe it could work out for him at wing back as there’s cover behind him

but his right one is virtually useless, same with yarmolenko, snodgrass, and to a slightly lesser extent cresswell ( chelsea goal ) .

The same is true of 90% of premier league players at every club.

In fairness to snodgrass he did get it past henderson on his right foot (think he was aiming for far post however)

Sullivan’s transfer strategy flowchart...
I can't laugh at that. It's too much like someone has actually hacked into Sullivan's brain...

For connoisseurs of crap YouTube vids, Lazaro’s got a beauty.

A supercut of intercepted passes, basic lay-offs, saved shots and being muscled off the ball. I don’t think it prob tells you much about Lozaro but I’d love to meet the guy who made the video.

I didn't suggest they were going to spend :lol:

There won't be a penny net. Maybe a shuffle around, but nothing net.

I watched that one the other day I think, and his dortmund one.

On the + side - he's quite big, pretty quick. On the flip, he looks like he gets caught wrong side of the ball and he has ten-to-two feet when it comes to passing.

Sulli's probably blaming our perilous league position on Pellegrini's shortcomings and is rightly or wrongly presuming that Moyes can keep us up without having to significantly invest in this window.

Risky business.
Of course he is. That was why Moyes was appointed. They also think/hope/pray/gamble that they can bung him a tiny budget in the summer and they can limp through another season in the prem and make it to then of the 20/21 season in the prem then start flashing the legs of the club in every seedy alley available. They might spend a little bit more that summer on the manager who will inevitably be replacing Moyes once the 18 month deal is done to see if they can get a little bit more for the used up whore they treat our club as.

He actually beat the first man with a few crosses in that video. It may have been straight to the second man but still one man further than Fredericks’ final ball most of the times.

There's plenty of life in the old girl yet, yes sh'e in a particularly abusive 4-way relationship right now, but just around the corner they'll be a rich businessmen looking to step in and offer her salvation and a way off the Stratford streets.

I’ve learnt. I’ve learnt not waste my breath fantasising about signings we should be making and now just hope the ones we do sign aren’t too bad.

Talk doesn't line the owners' pockets... season ticket cash does.
