Is Fellaini the answer?

The Daily Telegraph suggests West Ham are going to try to sign Marouane Fellaini on loan from Manchester United for the rest of the season. He 's certainly a big lump who would have a physical presence and always plays well against West Ham (but then most players do). He tends to slow down play in midfield though and we surely need to sped things up when you have Payet and Lanzini breaking and wing-backs overlapping. 

Another problem is that no-one seems to know his best position. Is the big Belgian a defensive shield, an attacking midfielder or a striker? I don't like Fellaini's use of elbows but on the other hand he's difficult to play against and he does have great chest control. If he could rediscover the goalscoring form he showed for Everton he might help save WHU and let's face it we're desperate. 

Though one alternative would be to sign the ghost of the late Italian filmmaker Fellini, who would at least make West Ham TV a lot more artistic.
