Mo Elyounoussi

Recommended Posts

Mo's nowhere near as bad as Saints fans think, and nowhere near as good as Celtic fans think.

 

Happy to help.

 

That can only be based in seeing him play somewhere else. Seriously hasn’t even looked a L1 player for us

He was rubbish yes. But in a short time frame and partly under Mark Hughes.

 

It's just the difference between poor form and a poor player.

 

He seems like an average player who'll do well in lesser leagues and not often enough for the premier league.

 

I'm sure he'd do very well in the championship too. He's not miles off being a premier league player, just too slow in speed and decision making. Some of that is form, but he's still not as good as Redmond, Boufal or Djenepo. I'm not sure he's as useful as Sims either, who I would also expect to do well for Celtic.

Moi set up the equaliser for Celtic away to Lazio.

 

Celtic won it in the 95th min.

 

And Fraser Forster is back to his best.

But Crab Lungs says Forster is non-league at best!

according to the article :-

 

"Southampton loanee Mohamed Elyounoussi epitomised the high-pressing style of play that many fans want to see, pressuring ex-Liverpool ace Lucas in midfield."

Elyounoussi was world class against Lazio last night. World class. That was one of the best attacking performances I've ever seen in 35 years of watching football. And I previously hated him. :scared: He's clearly our best player on that evidence.

No idea why you even bother. 1/10.

Good to see them both doing well, maybe we can do a swap deal for some of Celtic's up and coming players, like Edouard, Ajer, Julien, Greg Taylor

The problem is, Celtic won’t be able to get near FF or Moi’s wages to sign them permanently.

Not sure, but anyway if they were sensible they'd there for reduced wages, if it would restart their careers. That's what sensible people would do.

Surely they'd take a pay cut to be an important part of team that's wins most weeks, gets European football and where they clearly are enjoying playing again?

Players used to come to us to improve, and they did. Now they deteriorate and have to leave us to improve...Mo, Frazer. Tadic, just this season. What has gone wrong?

After a positive start now can’t seem to get in the Celtic starting 11

 

got on for last 15 today and contributed a few stray passes

 

suspect he’ll be back with us this summer sadly

He was outstanding for them in a 4-2-3-1 formation before getting injured for a couple of months.

 

I think Celtic then changed to wing-backs to get back on track & now he’s back fit, he doesn’t really suit the formation.

Bet we're paying a high proportion of his wages to assist the Forster deal going through.

With Ntcham and cash coming the other way.

Makes sense.

Otherwise it seems very early in the summer to be agreeing a loan for next season: would've thought we'd be trying hard to sell.

From where? Nobody wanted to buy him when the economics of football were good, so we’ve no chance with the sh*t show we’re currently going through.

What happened to making their lives miserable until they fuck off. Training with the nippers, ignoring them & generally messing them about. Nowadays, players we don’t want get shipped out to another club and stay on the same wages. I’d give him the choice, sign permanently or spend the rest of your contract running round the pitch & playing  in  the stiffs.

Which does nothing except ruin a mans career through no fault of his own and ensure one of our assets is worthless. We’ve scraped a bit of our money back on players like Austin, Clasie and Forster, what you’re suggesting would gain us nothing.

Trouble is do you want him training with the nippers slowly becoming like a bottle of milk left out on the side with the lid off stinking the place out? 
That said when he turned up he freely admitted that his contract with us sets him up for life, so cruising round with the nippers would probably suit him very nicely.

Different situation. If a club like Chelsea really do fancy him to boost their home grown quota, we might be in luck.

How’s it no fault of his own. He has a choice, sign for what Celtic think you’re worth or pick up your wages with us , but don’t play for X number of years. His choice.

Id imagine most players will take the move. Far better than paying them to play for someone else.

He is so bad, relieved he won't be playing for us for at least another year. Shame it's not permanent though.

Or the third option, the one which he is doing, which is to take the contracted wage we’ve given him but go on loan somewhere else so he still gets to play football.

 

The fault lies squarely with Saints and our old recruitment team, who I can only assume signed him off the back of a five minute YouTube video of his performance against Man City in the Europa.

The point is that would not be our preference. We are offering him the third option, as we are choosing to not be tough with him to force him to move. How we arrived at this point with him is a separate issue.
 

We would have preferred to sell, but if we are getting a decent loan fee and a good percentage of his wages paid, the chance for him to do well in Scotland next season, might create some competition for him next summer.

otherwise a sale now might see us take only a very small fee, possibly not much bigger than the loan fee, and take a big hit in the accounts on amortisation.

Great goal from Mo for Norway against Northern Ireland tonight and generally playing well. Norway 3 - 1 up at half time.

How bloody good is Haaland by the way? Unreal technique, great strength, great height, great pace. If you're looking for the attributes of a perfect centre forward, he has every single one at like 10/10.

He's going to be insane if he stays injury free.

He'd better keep away from Roy Keane-esque players then unlike his dad.

He was born in England, while he was probably always destined to play for Norway, it's a shame we couldn't get him to play for us. He would have provided us with even better attacking options than we already have and could have challenged the undroppable Kane for focal point of the attack.

Played well, although Northern Irelands team was pretty much made up of players from the middle of the championship, which is probably his level from what i've seen of him.
