Not too sure why we need Lingard?
We have Bowen, Yarmelenko, and even Antonio and Masuaku who can play on the wing. We sell A true professional in Snodgrass to opt for a falling midfielder who has a troubled past.
Mmm. I hope that they know what they are doing.

Same here. AM is not what we need.

A powerful CM like Kral and an out and out goal scorer are far more important for the squad.

But it does seem like we’re playing chicken with MU over the Lingard loan fee.

i think we should let Moyes decide who he wants to bring in. We all know we need a striker but Yarmelenko can and has filled that roll when needed but we also know Noble is not as good as he was he's ok seeing out a game as a sub, Lingard would be a decent signing depending on his cost. Moyes is building an exciting side which we have all been waitingfor. i though Moyes made a big mistake signing Dawson Moyes saw something that a lot of us didnt, if Moyes want Lingard let's get behind him and see where our train is taking us too.

I thought dawson was a terrible idea couldn't understand why as a club we entertained that one but boy am I glad to have been wrong
I wished we had left band name till end of season and signed dawson
Joy as has done us well with players in so if he wants Jesse then we should trust him I personally think Jesse is a confidence player so Moyers will work his magic with him.

Now reading DM now linked with Josh. Maja at Bordeaux🤣He played under DM at Sunderland, my goodness are the journalists now linking him with anybody and everybody that he has coached?
Seems a DM type, not a prolific scorer but very pacey, aggressive and a real grafter apparently! He’s English, 22, London born! ⚒⚒⚒.

Not sure i get the Lingard deal either. Only way it makes sense is if Moyes cannot get his top striker target this window and wants to keep/ play Yarmo as his backup to Antonio until the summer. Jesse is therefore seen more to replace Yarmo's position than anything else.
Personally, i'd 100% prefer us to go for a CM, even over a striker. I see this position as more of an issue/ risk for us. Yarmo or Odubeko COULD step in for Antonio (although not as good), but nobody we have can get anywhere close to Rice and Soucek ATM, and our backup is Nobes. We should not have sold Josh Cullen IMO, seems to be doing well under Vincent Kompany in Belgium.
Dawson and our DF is doing well ATM, good siging, but i think this is more down to having sorted the CM and some decent organisation. If we lose one CM then this could all come apart, much like Liverpool did when they lost Virgil.

i did see a news post relating to napoli looking to pay 24 mill for fornals could be BS this was 2 days ago ain't seen any posts since then don't know if the story has legs but most of serie a teams complaining of being skint.

Be really disappointed if we lose Fornals for Lingard, we ain’t gaining anything, how long to get Lingard up to match fitness for a start? ⚒⚒⚒.

Fornals has been a marmite player for many on here. Nobody has doubted his work rate or engine, but several have expressed concern about his end product and his pace.

For me, he’s done enough. Moyse might rotate and put him on the bench from time to time, especially if the Benrahma/ Lingard news is true (though there’s nothing in the WHUFC website about either) .

I’ve rarely seen a player work so hard and it’s infectious for the team.

For me Fornals starts every game, with him Rice n Soucek in the middle we look decent. Plus the man never stops running for the team. He was captain of Spain U21s and will be in their full squad sooner or later. It would be madness to replace him. He does miss chances, but at least he’s there busting a gut to get there. We had a £45m forward who couldn’t be arsed to get there. Fornals/ Rice/ Soucek/ Benrahma/ Bowen is a midfield many Premier League teams would love.

I love this site for all our varying comments as to how we see certain players, such complete opposite opinions at times, suppose all sites are the same!
It must surely work that the bigger the squad the more beneficial it will be, knowing DM’s choice of players as we have already seen, also he restricted on his budget obviously for signings!
He’s not going to sign another lazy H player that’s for sure, he’s a canny disciplined experienced Jock that will not tolerate slackers or those with no team ethic. Whatever is his choice will do for me, we should know by now all players will have their inadequacies, if they didn’t they wouldn’t be playing for our club⚒Simple! ⚒⚒⚒.

Not so sure it would be that easy to list either Rice or Soucek inadequacies this season!

Or Ogbonnas and Coufals!

That Napoli/ fornals story was run last jan I think its just a lazy repeat story.

Fornals is a steady player he doesn't give the ball away cheaply I like his decision making on when to try play a killer pass and when to come back and retain the ball. Guillem Balague said he was in the mold of a Barcelona type player and u can see that. Moyes has massively improved him off the ball though! He just need to work on his shooting which I'm sure he will be as he's getting lots of chances took his goal really well against Doncaster!

I think Moyes should be given benefit of the doubt. Who knows a striker deal may include a swap with Lansing or Yarmalenko so was waiting till we got Lingard in to do it? Who knows.

Obviously Lanzini have to turn off my auto correct or read my post first.

For me lingard is a direct replacement from 2 either yarmolenko or lanzini and going on his edge I'd out yarmolenko who has to be the slowest wide player I've seen for many a year and there's no guessing lingard might be a Wilshire and not premier league quality anymore we shall see?
