    I think there's a difference between signing young players with potential and signing players that don't fit in with your preferred style. Also, I think he's already said that playing up top doesn't suit Moura which indicates he wants a proven target man.

    Maybe it just doesn’t suit Mouras game... your logic would mean not going for an Aguero for example
    I think the target man is a thing for the past hence why no top teams play with them
     
    We are Tottenham and milo like this.

    Agreed
    Yet we were never linked with little Stevie down the wing... and we actually signed him

    Firmino isn’t a target man, but is a dream to play off - different to Moura.

    I still believe Mourinho would rather have a forward that keeps the ball and brings others in to play regularly.

    Chelsea do... and he is actually not that great
    United have no one

    Wolves don’t
    Sheffield United don’t

    I don’t know what your point is, sorry.

    My facts were Liverpool play with a forward that is a dream to play off, maybe not a typical target man, but brings players into play and helps them get up the field.

    My opinion is Jose would at least want that type of style from any forward he purchased.

    If you think he might like a Jarrod Bowen type then that is your opinion, personally I don’t see it, and wouldn’t use the signing of a young player in another position to say that Jose may change his stance on that (my original point).

    I don’t see Bowen as a target man, but he can bring people into play. He showed that last week vs Chelsea in the cup for example

    The old school target man doesn’t exist anymore
    Can’t think of one young target man coming through off the top of my head
    If we’re looking for a target man to cover Kane then we’re looks at 30 somethings now
    And Firmino is unique as again he is a striker that doesn’t score many goals compared to his other team members

    West ham want his wages cut in half if they are relegated, Bowen wants a low release clause if relegated.

    To sum it up: Both parties expect relegation!

    Fair okay to him
    Confident in his ability but not his team mates

    He's been impressive since stepping up. Will be interesting to see how he does next year when things are more settled.

    fernandes is GHod incarnate
    I mean he is the sole reason United got 3rd... not greenwood or the amount of penalties they had had which is a new record

    The worship of him has been high, but I don't think they would be third without him

    This.

    Whilst Fernandes has had a better start to his EPL career than the 2 midfielders we seemingly chose to sign instead, the fact that ManU have been awarded a penalty nearly every other game this season has been a major fillip which even Fergie would be envious of.
