I make bold to say that I wouldn't mind Balotteli in January instead of Morata's pending the summer when we can go for a world class. Mitrovic won't also be a bad idea either.
So frustrating watching our strikers play especially that waste, Morata. Please don't teach me loyalty because that's for the club and not on any underperforming player. No wonder ED002 always said that players are transient.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well said mate. I actually wouldn't mind Balotelli or even Mitrovic. To be honest anyone that can score more than 3 goals in 9 months is ok. I have been supporting Morata since he came but there comes a time where you realise that enough is enough. I may be late but it's because I wanted to give the chap a try. His a confidence player, these type of players are very difficult to deal with.

All of you raved about Morata signing when we signed him. If I am right it was me and Eli who wanted Lukaku instead.

The lad would bang goals in this team with so many chances we create.

{Ed002's Note - There was zero chance that Lukaku would have been signed - none, it wopuld not have been allowed - as was explained.}

Yes mate we raved about Morata, however none of us could foresee the situation he is now. I am glad the club have learnt from past mistakes and how we dealt with KDB, Salah etc because we have given him the chance to shine. Atleast we can say we gave him the opportunity and there will no be no regrets if he was to sign for another club and start scoring plenty of goals. Mentally his weak, too much time on the floor.

Anyhow, yes you wanted Lukaku but he isn't lighting up the premier league at all. He was non existent against us and that is the case against big teams. Man Utd fans will talk to you about his deficiencies.

Personally i would have like Alcacer, the guy is a real poacher and is no nonsense in front of goal. But obviously his only moved to Dortmund and therefore unlikely. I think if Piatek performs then we may be interested. Ed1 who do you think would suit our style mate, who would you shortlist.

{Ed001's Note - well it certainly wouldn't be Lukaku, I said earlier on the Man Utd site he is like a pinball bumper, he doesn't control the ball it just bounces off him in a random direction and no one knows where it will end up, least of all him!

Icardi is a goalscorer and would score goals, but he is a dick and you have to deal with his missus who is hellish hard work. So I would look elsewhere.

Rodrigo has been impressive, but not sure he would be worthwhile value at 27 to adapt to the league. Alcacer, as you said looks out of reach with him just moving. Looks a huge mistake to let him move in the summer.

We know Sarri likes a big man to lead the line, which is why he wanted Milik at Napoli, so why not someone like Dzeko as a short term option for the rest of the season?

If not there is Piatek and Maxi Gomez of Celta look good long term options - with Giroud to learn from, they could be very good options.

Personally I still think, if Pedro is not fit and with Willian offering nothing, I would drop Morata into a role behind and to the right of Giroud and give that a go.}

From what we know of Morata, at Real and Juventus, his goals were scored when he played off a striker. Benzema and Mandžukić.

I have said before, maybe not here, that we should try Giroud and Morata in the same team. Morata facing goal instead of trying to turn a defender should be something we look at.

In saying that, Morata was unlucky not to connect better with the chance at the start of the second half when he turned Smalling.
