Definitely his management team that asked for only 4 years. Gives him a bit of leverage in case he wants to move on or resign for a higher salary in 2 years. 

Possibly correct with that one. Smart on their part of so.

in the country apparently but isolating

Shouldn't take him too long to get involved, he's been playing in the Gold cup last month.

Perhaps he won't start at Watford but would expect him to be in from off v Newcastle.

Pretty sure professional sportspeople are still exempt from isolation rules. 

hmm dunno, but it was clearly mentioned he had to isolate which is why he isnt with the club yet?

Need to see pics with him in the shirt! Hope he doesn’t have to isolate and he’s involved in training from now on. After a disrupted pre season we need to do all we can to get a solid start - especially considering our first 3 fixtures!

So following on from Purslow’s video, is his first name pronounced “Lay-on” rather than “Lee-on”?

Purslow seemed to mispronounce “Grealish” so I can’t be 100% sure. 

His own dad pronounced it "Lee-on". I've not heard him say his own name yet though, so we'll see.

I hope Leon turns into a great player for us, the way he said that this is the next step in his career sounds like it's just going to be a stepping stone.

That’s absolutely fine. We all know now that we can’t expect any loyalty from any footballer.

if he gets us into top 4 and then moves on for 80-100m he’ll have done his job.

Interesting how Purslow pronounced his name ‘Lay-on’.  Is that correct?

If Purslow says that is how it is pronounced then you better believe that is how it is pronounced even if Bailey says otherwise. I remember him doing an interview after we signed Sanson. He pronounced it Saw-saw or something similar.

Looks slightly awkward in front of the camera, but I like what he's saying. Team work is mentioned a few times by him, a faster and more aware version of traore can't be a bad thing.

Going to be an exciting season with potentially 2 more very good signings to come.

Makes us unpredictable in a good way in that on the break we can hit it left or right and break quickly rather than hit it left and grealish breaks quick or hit it right and the play slows down.

Sounds about right - the 'n's should be barely enunciated.

Bailey's also my surname so I feel like it's an extra reason for wanting him to do well! And I'm thinking of buying his/my shirt. Anyway, good luck Leon, fingers crossed!
