We've played 17 PL games this season and we've won 3. All 3 came in the four game run starting at home to Leeds on 16th October, just after JWP had been suspended. We were unlucky not to beat Burnley and then had wins at Watford and against Villa.
After that run, going into the Norwich game, we looked solid for the first time in a long time.
Elyounoussi started in all four of those games. He came off at around the 60 minute mark against Norwich before they scored their winner.
I'm pretty sure he hasn't started since. But he's been on the bench so I presume he's been fit.
I know he's not perfect and that he should score more but I think he adds experience and control to our attack.
It may be a coincidence but I think the fact that we were looking more solid going into the Norwich game was in part down to his presence in those previous four games.
If S Armstrong is unavailable I think Elyounoussi should start. We need the steadiness and experience of one of them in the team. Tella and Redmond are too similar.

Has anyone else been following the World Chess Championship?
The Russian challenger Yan Nepomniachtchi started well for the first 5 games, but then completely blew it, losing 4 of the last 6 with a series of stupid errors, and has now lost the match.
I'm going to invite him to St Marys.

Brace for the Norway against Montenegro tonight.
I'd like to see him getting more time on the pitch for Saints.

£10 Million offers come in for Elyounnoussi and Djenepo tomorrow. Would you sell either or both of them?

I wasn’t at Goodison, but I’ve read the comments and watched the motd highlights.
Now that we’ve had a reminder of how it was in latter half of last season (leads lost, second half fades, some first team starters clearly not good enough) does anyone still think we’ve had a good (or even adequate) window so far? The excitement at getting in new people has disguised the fact that we are still fragile in so many areas.
I‘m really looking forward to the first home game next Sunday - it’s been too long - but I’m seriously worried about what I’m going to see.
