    Gracia was cunning today, a week before the window.

    No Doucs = **** performance.

    Doucs = goal.

    Gino, possessed of GCSE Maths/feral street smarts, will take the point.

    Well Danny Murphy reckons he has been our best player this season ..

    Maybe the Scouts will feel the same ?

    He’s going nowhere in this transfer window.

    Professor Murphy reckons his elbow is the best thing he’s sat on this year.

    Has this **** not ****** off yet , to play in French Vanarama league.
  6. Lots of noise on twitter, supposed to have said he wants to join a CL team on French TV

    Fair enough if he wants to go no point standing in a players way, its not ideal but we should get a sack full of cash and we have Chalobah, Cleverley, Hughes, and Quinna who can play CM

    Don't mind him voicing his "dreams" on social media channels. However, I feel like he is taking advantage of it to force a move. Richy did the same. Unfortunately for Richy though, he got a very average Everton move instead of a dream job at Dortmund!

    As far as I'm concerned this is not really news for us. We know that if an appropriate bid is made Gino and co will always consider it. All our players have their price, and there is way we would stand in Doucoure's way if a reasonable bid is made. The real question is what we consider reasonable? I would be devastated if we sold him for less than we received for Richarlison.

    I think we all know he'll leave Watford. He didn't sign a new 5 year contract because he intends to be here until 2023. I doubt it'll be until the summer, though if the offer comes now we'll survive.

    Hopefully that's the end of his wantaway comments on French telly for this January - once is what we've come to expect from players these days but if he carries on it'll start to look disrespectful.

    It depends on how many times he's asked the question. Knowing how the press work, it will be in absolutely every press interview from now until he does eventually leave.

    I reckon given we are safe as houses there is an argument we are better off selling to PSG now so we can work on adapting to life without him ahead of next season. I think we are going to miss him a lot and if we nosedive after he leaves if it happens now it will be obvious we need to reinvest in the summer.

    Really don't care what he says in interviews about his ambitions, as long as he puts the effort in on the pitch. Seems like some people just love to get outraged by things. He's obviously wants to go and play at the highest level possible, particularly as he seems to think that Deschamps has intimated he'll only select players playing at top clubs for the national team.

    We shouldn't forget either that we signed him and then loaned him straight out again without him knowing that was going to happen. He performed brilliantly at Granada and then we tried to loan him back to France having never played for us, then froze him out for half a season, only giving him a chance when there was an injury crisis. Doesn't owe us anything other than full effort as long as he's here.

    Point of order: -

    I think there is about 3/4 Doucoure threads running at the moment, any chance they could be amalgamated please, thank you Mr. Mods :)

    100%. He's not been as good this season as last, IMO, but I can't see any of that is down to not trying or to him having a bad attitude.

    a definite 75% clap/25% boo player when he leaves.

    Surprised that he’s not being accused of faking injury until the Chinese transfer window opens. That said, he’s got form, having pretended to get his appendix removed this summer.

    It looks as if Gino has wrapped up Doucs personally.

    All it needs is a first stamp class & he's gone.

    Too late to slip into your Chanel suit as a tribute to Karl then Doucs?

    When Bowie died, we all knew what he had created.

    With KL, I’ve no idea.

    A line skirts? Whatever they might be.

    Famous for being famous?

    File under Beckham?

    Made Chanel rather gaudy and ostentatious perhaps?
    Had a pony tail?
    Teutonic Versace?

    Something of a Euro Ian Dury about him.

    Smarter & washed, though.

    There is a very poor taste joke there for the taking, given recent events, but I feel it is too soon....
