A group of supporters on social media all have the same message for the club after a key injury update was issued ahead of Wednesday’s clash with Leicester.
TEAM NEWS:@Michailantonio (Hamstring): “Getting closer to fitness. He’s been training”@F_Andersoon (Back): “Out for a while, looks like probably four weeks, we think”@Yarmolenko_7 (Thigh): “Probably the best part of three weeks away at the moment”

David Moyes has told us that Michail Antonio is getting closer to fitness, but Felipe Anderson will most likely be out for four weeks and it will be around three weeks before we see Andriy Yarmolenko again.
Sign, sign, sign was the understandable message from some fans as one questioned the board having not brought in a single outfield player so far this month, another demanded a decent new player or two right now and one more angrily predicted that the next new signing won’t be made until the summer – that even might be a bit optimistic at this rate.
The positive is that, following Moyes’ comments, ExWHUemployee confirmed that Michail Antonio would be back in the squad this Wednesday night, but Anderson’s and Yarmolenko’s continued absences will likely mean a consistent run in the team for Robert Snodgrass and can his veteran body handle the demanding schedule ahead?
And yet we don’t need signings according to our board?? 😂😂🤨🤨

We need an effective signing or two. Now.
