Kiko Femenia joined the Hornets in July 2017.
Anyone else think this guy is ******* quality. What a signing. Free transfer and is brilliant.

Yep, 2 great feet, good engine, great awareness, and looks so so comfortable on the ball. On no one's radar except ours and he's adapting really well.
I honestly thought when he went to left back, this guy should have started the game there.
Fantastic signing so far.
Agree with previous two posts.
I like his energy and enthusiasm and he has good control as well.
I'm hoping he continues in this vein and doesn't suffer from Nyomitis!
Kiko F - Rapidly becoming one of my favourite players after just a handful of games.
Absolute quality player in all sorts of aspects, but most of all his rapid feet, passing vision and accuracy.
Potential player of the season once he's properly settled in.
You heard it here first.
2nd fastest player in the Prem, didn't notice he was THAT quick.
I need to see more of his defensive game first before judging, but regarding his play through the 3rds totally agree, surprisingly decent player for a freebie
From what I've seen so far I prefer him to Janmaat.
I never, ever believe these sort of stats. I'm not having that Koscielny is the third fastest in the league after three games or whatever it was.
Wasn't Kaboul supposed to be one the of the fastest players at Spurs at one point?
Janmaat at RB and Femenia at RW would be my ideal setup if you wanted both in the side. I still think Janmaat is the more balanced player of the two.
Harsh on Carrillo who looked more than useful v saints
I'd keep Carillo. I was saying if you wanted both in the team this is how'd you have them.
This is very interesting. What if you wanted both Gomes and Pantilimon in the team?
Pantilimon at left back ....
... on the team bus
You drop him off in Spain.
Hire Mazzarri. He'd be able to solve that one.
I think Walter was considering all three keepers, which would be ridiculous. Two is easily enough for anyone.
Useful going forward but not convinced by his defending. We will agree to disagree for now.
Was absolutely immense yesterday, everyone's giving us credit for the Chalobah and Richarlison signings, but I think Kiko could be the best of them all - and on a free as well!
Already got 1/3 of Amrabat’s assists too...playing further back.
I must confess I doubted he was a good choice for us when he signed in the transfer window. I was wrong.
On Sunday he again proved what a good footballing brain he has, showed his commitment and linked superbly with Hughes. He seems to have a calm disposition in stark contrast to a couple of his defending colleagues.
So many positives about his game: touch, vision, pace, intelligence, positioning. You can see why he was a winger on Real/Barca's books. The only weakness I can see to his game is when he comes up against a more physical opponent defensively, but he's protected from this when we play the back 3. Best free transfer we've brought in that I can remember if he maintains these levels of performance.
Thoughts on his hair cut?
Superb footballer. Completely under the radar as one of our attacking forces as well.
Do your sources have any idea where he gets his hair cut m8?
I like him
So what did Kiko do tonight? Did he bottle the last couple of minutes?
He was injured.. and we'd used all our subs. He was near the tunnel (which is in the corner) so just started walking there instead of going to the bench.
It didnt look good but i dont believe there's too much to think about there.
I'd like to think about why was he brought on in the first place to replace Ricky, why not brink on Success straight swap
Then the spotlight surely turns to Silva.
Presume his injury is now much worse than it was before he came on at Palace.
Boy do we miss him. The only decent fullback we have at the club.
