Well this is interesting, very interesting…..
There are rumours going around the web that Moyes may replace the stuttering Scamacca with the extremely promising, but still raw, Divin Mubama in our next match.
Whether or not it is true however, it does throw up a new dynamic in our current quest for goals.
No matter how you look at it, Scamacca has been very disappointing this season with only 8 goals compared to the 18 he scored last term for Sassuolo.
The end of the season is in sight and perhaps it may be worth a final throw of the dice. Although Moyes being Moyes and with his safety first approach this is as much likely to happen as Declan Rice signing for Mansfield.
Young Divin has scored an impressive 49 times from just 76 appearances across the U18 and U21 age groups – a proper strikers pedigree
No matter how you dress it up, it really can’t get much worse for the Irons….or can it?
Perhaps if we ignore the naysayers and trust in youth, this could well be the way to save our season.
Our big Italian is a quality proven goal scorer. Throwing kids in now is not the answer. Pick a team that gets the best out of him instead of constantly leaving him isolated. Play him with Ings alongside and Antonio out wide. If we are going down – let’s go down swinging instead of feebly throwing the towel in like a boxer who’s had one fight too many. COYI!!!
This article makes no sense at all. Why is the choice between Scamacca and Mumaba? What happened to Danny Ings, or Antonio, or even Bowen?
I agree that it is unfair to judge Scamacca on what he has been able to achieve to date as the problem is more the way we play than the quality of the player.If they use Mubana I wish him all the luck in the world but I fear that the result will be the same if we continue with the the same ineffective, negative tactics
