Thread: Mo Elyounoussi

    Default Mo Elyounoussi

    The latest Norweigian to join the ranks?

    Looking likely according to sky sources

    completely wrong for this club, our supporters struggle enough to sing at home, how the plums do they think our crowd is going to be able to sing a song the incorparates this name!

    I'm sure something can be done with Mo.

    I just love Wikipedia:
    Elyounoussi’s father owns a pizza shop in Norway, with young Mohamed occasionally dropping in to entertain customers by singing classic songs by the Nolan Sisters.

    Did they? How exactly did they word it? There is a significant difference between "bid accepted" and "done deal".

    Good Signing, Exciting Signing. Not bothered about Tadic going if we get this guy.

    Chelsea fans used to sing Tore-Andre Flo's surname to the 2 Unlimited "hit" no limits. We could adapt that chant for Mo, should he sign. And, given he's also Norwegian, I bet he'd be well chuffed.

    Genuinley excited by this one, he's quality. Quick, bit of a unit - wouldn't say he's small, tricky and a very good dribbler. Also knows where the net is.

    I love these sorts of signings - star of a team in a lesser league, at a good age. We'll probably sell him in 2 seasons time for double the fee, but if that happens it means he's been a success.

    Mohamed Elyounoussi’s agent is currently negotiating personal terms with Southampton. The player is expected to fly to England tonight or tomorrow for a medical.

    Boufal and Tadic out + we were looking to bring in another AM in Jan. Depends how Armstrong fits and if we intend to shift any other midfielders, including Davis.

    Personal life[edit]

    He is the cousin of Tarik Elyounoussi, who is also a Norwegian international footballer and plays for AIK.[13] Elyounoussi’s father owns a pizza shop in Norway, with young Mohamed occasionally dropping in to entertain customers by singing classic songs by the Nolan Sisters.[14]

    Default Mo Elyounoussi

    I think he would be a cracking signing.

    It seems an obvious shift back in our transfer policy.

    Go for very good players in lesser teams who are in the upward curve in their careers as opposed to bit-part players in top sides.

    Both ways are gambles but the former seems to have a greater hit rate for us

    Also, players in before out is always good.
    Still need to get the fullback positions made certain and the contract of McCarthy

    BBC Radio Solent have said they expect this one to be wrapped up before the weekend, and also Tadic to Ajax to be announced before the weekend as well.

    Ah well, at least we appear to have a quality replacement coming in.

    Hope Mo is quick too

    Seems like a direct swap for Tadic both financial and position.

    With Armstrong confirmed (price £4-7m quoted) That would still leave us 35-45m from the vvd monies + whatever transfer budget we have allocated (from premier league /TV) for 18/19 season. Best guess 30m?

    So £65-75m still to spend potentially + I'd expect some more outgoing (Boufal for example) so would expect our spend to increase accordingly.

    It's been a slow start but I think activity will start to speed up now.

    Good business in theory, but with Tadic leaving he will have to hit the ground running and have a similar impact to what Tadic had at first.

    If he is another Boufal who doesn't adapt then we are in trouble.

    You'd hope we're after a decent replacement for Boufal too.

    Have we been gazumped yet (it's the new "has he signed yet")?

    Seems like a very positive signing if all goes to plan & will hopefully Dusan's boots admirably.

    Looks a good buy, glad we've had a reshuffle behind the scenes... Appears to be paying dividends immediacy. Ta-ra Leslie, your involvement will not be missed.

    And you will still be slagging him off for club failures long after he is dead.

    That's a good point. The strategy of going for very good players in lesser teams worked for us before - Celtic players (i.e. VVD), Mané from Salzburg, Tadic from Twente etc.

    I think the club has tried to be a bit too clever in its recruitment in the last couple of years - hopefully these players will work out for us. He certainly looks good on paper.

    He's no Egil Ostenstad but nonetheless I look forward to digging out my Viking helmet for the last away game of the season.

    Lemina deal must also be agreed for this to happen, methinks. Italy? Liverpool? Spurs?

    What's this got to do with Lemina? Totally different player.

    Why have you jumped to that conclusion? Lemina is a central midfielder, Elyounoussi is a winger/attacking midfielder. They aren't really competing for the same role.
