    Seeing as he is the best source of transfer and club news we have, thought maybe a central thread for him might be worthwhile?

    Leventhal has tweeted and is replying to fans questions tonight...

    So far:
    Kim Min-Jae is a target but would be signed now to arrive in Jan.
    Expects Okaka, Prodl and Dahlberg (loan) to leave.
    Envisages Dawson to be No.1 CB and to galvanise the existing ones we have.
    Definite interest in record move for Sarr - could be an auction though.
    Wilmot is potentially an option as CB this year.
    Lukebakio will join up with squad but could leave.
    Doucoure could leave if big clubs don’t secure primary targets but will be staying most likely.
    Cucho expected to be an option NEXT season, not this year.

    Since Kevin Affleck sold his soul to the devil, AL has always been the best source of news.

    He’s a big Watford fan and works for SkySportsNews. He’s got access to the entire SSN network. He clearly has a contact at the club but also has his ear to the ground getting good information from selling clubs, who are more likely to spill the beans on an enquiry/bid from Watford.

    It’s great that he regularly updates his Twitter feed, and has always been extremely reliable with the information he puts out.

    Hadn’t we agreed that Millie Bright was a better option than BW as CB this year?

    Dismal & unsettling period for Doucs.

    They’re saying you’re not good really enough.

    We know that.

    But if one of them suddenly remembers that you are good enough, you’re gone.

    Gazillions all round but still a piece of meat.

    Doesn’t Affleck now work for Watford Football Club?

    Yes, hence the selling his soul comment. Working for the club means a gagging order. He can now only write what they want him to.

    Adam hasn't fallen out with the club like the WO have who just seems to copy and paste articles from elsewhere.

    I don’t remember him as Hunter S Thompson beforehand.

    Odd that they’ve allowed that to happen.

    WFC are the biggest/only story in W Herts.

    Has Cucho signed a new contract? He seems to be listed as contracted to the end of the 2019/20 season anywhere I've searched.

    Except when there is a multiple stabbing just outside the ground.
  13. Ray Knight

    Ask Adam about Cucho?

    I'll be cheeky and suggest you have taken on the Affleck role.

    Reading that sounds like no more CBs planned. Plenty of minutes again for Kabasele and Mariappa then next season. Groundhog Day.

    Hopefully the stabbing was a one off.
  17. No sadly it was repeated, twice.

    Flipping through today’s main stories, more bad news.

    A bus stop is to be renamed.

    Also, a dog ran into a fence.

    Worrying that AL states that Masina's performances have supposedly been "impressive".

    Good to know the club seem to realise Cucho isn't ready yet.

    However, AL refused to answer any of the multiple questions posed to him asking if there'll be another striker signed this summer.

    I can exclusively reveal that Gracia is set to leave the club in the forseeable future.

    No firm decision has been made, but I understand that the decision will be results based.

    At least the dog didn't run into the bus stop as that would have made the renaming ceremony messy!

    Barbed wire fence so the beast got bloodied.

    Hence the William Randolph Hearst treatment.

    That would merit a cut out & keep souvenir supplement.

    Oh dear,not a good start to the day.

    I'd imagine that would mean a new contract is on the horizon

    Piling Pelion upon Ossa, in a manner of speaking.
  28. So have we signed this bloody Leventhal yet or not ? Can't find a link anywhere.

    Thanks for the update. As an Watfordshire expat I really enjoyed the Friday Watford Observer updates we used to get on here. Would be good to have them again!

    Crazy unless Wilmot is the answer
  32. hornetboy1

    Kim Min-Jae is a centre back. If we sign him and assuming Prodl will go, we'll have Cathcart, Dawson, Kabasele, Mariappa, Wilmot and Kim Min-Jae (albeit not until January). I think that would be fine.

    Dawson improves the situation a lot already. Last season we were rotating between Cathcart, Kabs and Mapps. It was not ideal.

    Looking at this, it could be that we don't do too much transfer business in January, but will have two or three new players to add to the squad in Kim Min-Jae, Pedro and possibly Cucho.

    If Kabasele cut out the silly errors he would be good enough and we wouldn't be too concerned, as it is I reckon we will start with the two craigs to confuse the opposition when instructions are yelled by name!

    Gino always keeps his car close to his chest, he has probably got a few things up his sleeve we don't know about!
