Nice try? It's not my comparison, it's yours.Nice try, it was 4 years ago, not 2, 4 years ago Rooney was playing for us, now he's playing for Derby in the Championship, players regress, that's life, especially when plying their trade at a lower level, there is no agenda bar yours, trying to act like him scoring more than Salah and Mahrez in a competition means he's good, that's so ridiculous as it offers no context like the quality of the teams they are in or the quality of the teams they are playing, if that was the case then why's nobody bothered with him for 3 years and he only became an option when us and Spurs ran out of options with a few hours to go.
You're a fool, I'm not contradicting an opinion, my opinion of a player can change over 4 years, and there is zero proof that he's a good short term option, and the biggest worry is that he'll score 3 or 4 and we'll make it permanent as that's the reactionary shit we do like how we ended up with a novice in charge. I'm not entangled in anything so quit trying to justify sucking off the clubs shite choices by trying to undercut me, that is desperate. The club is badly run, there's no debate on that unless you're fecking stupid so I don't need to show anything, I simply think this guy is a bum and a truly desperate move because we failed to get in any quality up front over the last 31 days.
100%. My memory sucks though, so it's no surprise to me.Surprised how many have said this. Seriously, you don't remember him from Watford?
He (briefly) scored for fun in the Premier League a couple of years ago!
You don't let them off easy if so.Some utter nonsense written in this thread. No doubt the majority of these people would have preferred us giving Haaland a release clause and his representatives a big cut of the future fee.
You make it sound as if Ighalo have retired 3 years back and all he does is scratch his backside all day long. A lot of good players have gone to the Chinese league or one of the Arab leagues because of money. He is only 30. Have played in the league before scoring lots of goals in his first season(not sure what happened in his 2nd season). 6 months loan as cover for Martial(and we might need him at LW more) is an ok deal for me. Lingard and Perreira can't play upfront. And if he works out, and we decided to make it permanent, I have no issues with that. But if Martial continue to blow hot and cold, we might need to get a much better striker in.I hear dion Dublins contract is up for renewal with homes under the hammer, maybe tempt him back with a loan if it doesn't matter who it is we get?
Seriously though we do need a striker but this guy isn't the answer. I will happily be proven wrong but to leave it this late to make a move for him seems like the club is saving face, and when it doesn't go through, woody can say that at least we tried.
