Twitter transfer man Nico Schira says Shevchenko wants to sign Yarmolenko for Genoa in January and discussions have started.
Think he’d do well in Serie A. How reliable is Nico Schira Wilko? My ‘from a distance’ sense is that he gets tonnes wrong. Could it be 2+2?

He's very hit and miss

He does get the odd one right though

This feels that it makes sense though

That Yarmolenko link is very much believable. And I agree with Hammer1975, I also think he would do okay in that League. Ex manager, last chance for us to get a little bit of dosh for him. It’s a no-brainer if true.

I can see Moyes going for Yarmolenko out, Lingard in as a straight swap. The only problem is we are arguably short on at least 1 attacking player even if Yarmolenko stays. So we would still be in the same predicament of being light by at least 1 player.

Yarmolenko out - Hlozek in maybe?

As much as people keep referring to him as a striker he seems to have played just as much (if not more) in the three behind from what I can tell.

Mate, Hlozek will get a restraining order out eventually…

Didn't the Ukraine manager also mention Genoas interest the other day too?

I saw a breakdown last month of where our attacking threat comes from this season, and it's incredibly lopsided towards the left. Almost an equal amount of ball goes down each side during the season, but in terms of progressive passing and making attacking inroads it was more like 65/35.

That's more of a mid-term future issue to address really. All of them are playing well so it's not so much about starting replacements, but it does tell us that that chain of Zouma - Johnson/Coufal - Bowen could do with some options to open up that side of the field a little more in an attacking sense in certain games, particularly if opposition managers start to deliberately shepherd our attacks onto that side.
I feel like its been like that for years - ever since Payet.

We have plenty of bodies to fill a front 3.

The issue is more of the uniqueness among them for Antonio to physically bully centre halves.

Clubs like Man City and Liverpool don't seem to care about that kind of characteristic though and rely on pace, movement and technique to overwhelm rather than brute strength.

We don't ideally need another Antonio - we need another Arnautovic, but without the drama. Physically imposing, but technically good and blessed with real acceleration over 10-15 yards, the kind full backs might be able to deal with, but centre halves can't.

Like both, it will probably be an ex-winger/AM who is able to convert. Arnautovic was having the same kind of impact on our play in Moyes' first spell, but we didn't have the same engines in behind the front lads back then.

From what I saw of the Rangers match the other night, the position Hlozek may as well have played in was a sub on the bench. As he was bloody anonymous. He looks nowhere near good enough for the Scottish League, let alone the Premier League.

Yarmo is off to Italy.

Genoa?

No, not personally. Anyway, Yarmo is a guy.



:clown: Cheers.

That almost describes Jarrod Bowen. But he needs to be far more clinical with his finishing, as he still misses too many chances. It was criminal how he didn’t score at least 1 goal on Thursday night.

I still think Moyes will try and nab an attacker from one of the clubs fighting relegation. Cornet and Sarr spring to mind.

Hi Funky, read this part of your post and remember thinking exact same about early Antonio. So much is self confidence. Antonio’s conversion rate is not high (based on no facts just gut feel), but he converts enough to retain the shirt. It would be nice to get Bowen up to the same level of self confidence in front of goal.

Suspect you are right re Moyes preference.

Lol. To be honest, I’m not that sure about him in the short term but since those magic words ‘loan to buy’ were mentioned it feels inevitable that he’ll join!

I'm not sure I'd say criminal. I just thought he was desperately unlucky. On most other nights he'd have scored. Things just aren't going his way at the moment.

I would. That chance he missed in the 5th minute was a sitter. And the chance he missed in the 55th minute, all he had to do was shoot from his right foot, instead of left and it’s a goal. The keeper’s positioning made the chance even easier.

It’s a shame as Jarrod produced a really good performance other than not taking his chances. That run from the left when he ghosted in and out of a few players in the 2nd half was a thing of beauty.

Sorry I couldn't resist a list !

Bayo at Clermont may be the Antonio esq striker we need

23 strong pacey and scores a few . 15m ?

LB - Lloyd Kelly of Bournemouth 15m ?

CB - left sided needed 15m

AM - lingard 10m

Outs yarmo free Randolph free

55m and we are sorted for top 4 push and EL challenge !

I read that Genoa have used all their non EU squad places and they can’t be reallocated mid season. Anyone know the system? Whilst he clearly has some squad value, on his current wages letting him go might be best for all parties.

Lots of tweets about Arthur Cabral, the Basel striker, this morning, his stats are great, anyone seen him?

I watched a replay of the first half of that game the day after because I was curious to see him play a club game against someone half-decent (I know I know, SPL etc) on British soil.

I can understand why people want to sign him based on what he might become but the idea he’d have any impact on our current fortunes this season as some sort of January reinforcement is fanciful. As you say, was a shadow even against the relative might of Rangers.
