Moyes mantra back on the road again

David Moyes seems keen to dampen down any serious talk of incoming players during the current transfer window.
As we allegedly put in bid after bid for player after player the manager seems more than relaxed with what he has currently available. It’s probably not a view shared by too many fans who justifiably are desperate to see a striker join the ranks.
The Moyes mantra remained the same at today’s presser as it has done for several days, that he won’t be doing anything unless he is convinced they can add something to the squad.
He again took the opportunity to make his position clear when discussing the issue at his pre-match presser ahead of the West Brom game.
If nothing else he cant be accused of raising false expectations despite it appearing to be crystal clear that having sole one striker and been left with just the one it is surely a must we get another.
He told reporters:

“If we can find somebody we think we can add to the squad who’ll make us better… but if we don’t get it that’s the way it’s going to be. It is a transfer window where we’re out there trying.
“We’ve got a really good squad at the moment with players who are really contributing in the starting eleven and off the bench.
We’re aware that we’re two senior players down from a few weeks ago, but if we can get somebody in, great, but if we don’t, we’ll work with what we’ve got.”

  1. We are in ninth place. Played without an EPL striker for the entire time Antonio was out. Have Yarmalenko who can strike and the young lad. Where is the urgency?
    Last thing we need is another long term liability.
    I trust Moyes.

  2. If we want to challenge for Europe or even try for a cup run, we need another striker as its simply too risky to shoulder Antonio’s back up on an unproven teenager albeit highly rated…

    I don’t see Yarmolenko as a forward he is so slow look at the chance he missed on Saturday, further I wonder if he has or will fully recover from the bad injury he just doesn’t seem the same player.

    If we cant find the right longer term target, then look short term either as a foreign loan
    Convert Dawson to perm which shouldn’t be a significant cost and then that opens up domestic loan possibilities

    We have done well to get to ninth place and now is not the time to stagnate
