  1. Deulofeu is class on his day but too inconsistent and goes missing too much for me ... Doucoure is a good shout but surely bigger teams would be in for him ?
  2. I hope for many reasons Watford get relegated this season and if so id hope we’d go for Will Hughes in the summer.
  3. Rashica is the type of player we need as we are becoming too reliant on Jack for creativity. Wesley also needs help badly up front to take the pressure of him and let him settle and hopefully prove the doubters wrong. I can see us maybe going back in for Remi Oudin alternatively to increase options in the attacking third. I would also like us to go in for Josh Sargent again from Bremen who I think will go on to be a fantastic striker. My theory is we were always after another (poss main )striker in the summer but for whatever reason we couldn’t get our preferred target. We have built the squad now in January we need one or two players of exceptional talent to supplement the team maybe alongside a young prospect.

    Dean Smith

    ThoughT he got it wrong last night with his team formation and starting 11 . He has to move away from his rigid 433 and switch things up and make in game tweaks. Engels should have been brought back in and I would of maybe sacrificed Trezequet for Luiz to start with for an extra body in the midfield. We are too predictable especially with Mcginn & Wesley so out of form. It’s get the ball to jack and hope for the best .
  5. I was thinking last night that he was probs a bit behind where he should be for his age considering the lack of overall game time he has had in his career to date. He has played 120 first team with 54 of those games being at CB and is 26 years old. There is no substitute for experience. For perspective konsa at 22 has played over 140 first team games.
  6. Jean Phillipe Mateta or Andrea Belotti please or as it’s Xmas both ? ....
  7. Looks a real talent... But having been signed ... and then sold by Charleroi to Lille he can’t be registered again to another team this season ? No ?
  8. Technically he didn’t he was signed from Hereford in 2014 as an u18 player and was signed by academy manager Tony Pennock when Hereford were expelled from the league.
  9. Let’s move on from this benteke nonsense once and for all as he will never be the player he was (for us) again for a top flight English team . FACT ! He has had his day in the sun and will no doubt retire to China in a year or so max .... Guys scoring record is atrocious and not what we need. Wouldn’t touch him even on a free ...
  10. If Ibrahimovic goes to AC then surely one off Piatek or Leao will be surplus and could be a loan option ?
  11. **** off with Benteke talk ... guy is a Clumsy cumbersome has been Living off the back of a good 18months period how many seasons ago ... he is now shit move on
  12. Glad we can play well and win with a misfiring McGinn ...
  13. I see Calvin Stengs is on the bench for Netherlands I really hope we are scouting him 10 assists and nine goals already this season predominantly a right winger . https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/calvin-stengs/profil/spieler/409344 here’s a tactical right up from last season https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/totalfootballanalysis.com/player-analysis/calvin-stengs-az-alkmaar-tactical-analysis-statistics/amp

    Wesley Moraes

    Some of the comments I find baffling , he is a work in progress with plenty of room for improvement. He has shown glimpses so far of his potential and will hopefully grow. He needs proper competition from another forward to keep the pressure on him but have few doubts he will come good. Think some are getting caught up by the fact he is Brazilian and expect too much of him so soon . If we are Still having the same conversations in a year I’ll be worried but still early days to be writing him off somewhat. Have faith he will come good and let’s see without being too critical too soon
