If Moyes picks the new kid over him it may cause a little friction.

He looks so much better with a competent midfielder in Mario. Will just be more infuriating when they create a bunch of goals together (2 so far, today and the penalty drawn) just to have Mario's option not exercised and Chicharito sold on the cheap to a club where he'll put in 15 goals next season.

Looking forward to:

Arnie Mario Lanzini
Kouyate Noble.

I don’t think we CAN play with a back four anymore.

We get demolished basically every time we play a back 4, our porous midfield means our defence is too exposed and our fullbacks are too Old/Slow/Naive/Rubbish (delete as appropriate) that they need back up from a CDM (which we still don’t have...) or a third CB.

3 in 3 now for Chicharito, give him the service and he is a 20 goal a season striker. He was unlucky not to be given the goal other he scored, wasn't offside imo.

Tragic really that he’s another player who will be off in the summer, having watched & been a part of the complete clusterfuk that is this clubs running

7 goals, considering how many games he has missed this season, are massive.

He is a great strike. I am very glad that he is part of that team. :thup:

100%

A **** load of nonsense has been said about Hernandez since he arrived, yet he shows again what he's all about. Just gutted he was often overlooked and only came back in the side due to injuries. He should be starting most games anyway.

His conversion rate must be high to the little chances he does get.

The thought of selling him was a stupid idea and glad we resisted the temptation. I just hope that once this sorry season is over, we can go again next season with him spearheading our Team again. He's exactly the kind of player we need to be attracting and keeping here if we ever want to improve and progress.

Someone has clearly marked the bloke's card and explained the (transfer out) facts of life to him.

He has stopped diving, stopped falling over with every contact, started running and putting in a shift.

The more I watch him now, the more sure I am that the bloke wasn't even bothering to try before.

I seemed to think you thought he was the wrong style of player for us rather than just not trying hard.

Having seen his effort in the last three, I'm now thinking it was his attitude.

Probably helps having Arnautovic up there too, mind.

Who would have thought it?
A centre forward with a history of scoring goals, given a run of games in his proper position with at least a semblance of support, still scoring goals

You started moaning about how defensive we were at 5pm, didn't you?

Now you're piping up suggesting we've changed?

Hopefully he can keep this up and he won’t have to endure the unnecessary overtop slating that seems to have moved on to Antonio now.


Him and Antonio telling some of their over the top critics to simmer down with their contribution today.
