What rumour about a striker?
Lol, good spot - it is!
Nice to see he still can’t hit a barn door!
Hm, I can't find the post now. Maybe the Origi thread got me in a muddle.
And he scored 2 more in his second match today...
(jump to 1:50)
Having looked at all the stories I could find about our supposed deal with him, some phrasing stated that it's happening in January because Besiktas would have only been due a chunk of the fee from Benfica if he was sold in the summer. It still seems pretty bizarre, but then I guess this way everyone is kind of happy (except for Besiktas) - Benfica get the full transfer fee, plus no doubt a tasty loan fee from Guangzhou, Talisca gets paid a bucket-load extra dosh to d1ck on a pi55-poor league for 6 months, and we get a top prospect who maybe other bigger clubs weren't willing to wait for.
Definitely has a sweet left foot. His second goal in the last game was superb. Obviously this could be a load of horse dung but definitely fits the Pozzo model so we will see what happens in January.
Here’s the talk of the ‘Pozzo model’ again...
Surely if we signed this player for £20m in the hope of him being decent and then moving on for £50m that’s the same as all clubs our size do with players?
I really don’t see how it’s any more unique.
They ALL follow the Pozzo model ! ©Pozzo.
Unless the ‘Pozzo Model’ is to sign 1537 attacking midfielders. Then yes, he fits the model perfectly...
The model as I understand it only really refers to the young foreign players we sign and loan out, not those signed for the first team squad. We're still pretty unique for a club of our size to have all these 18-22 year olds out on loan that have been bought from all corners of the world and will probably never play for us. The "model" is to hope one or two come good and we can make a massive profit and use a small bit to keep the scouting going another few years.
Our first team signings are indistinguishable from most other teams, and are quite often baffling. There's obviously been a move to signing younger players last couple of seasons but that's about it as far as any grand transfer plan goes.
Was this rumour ever confirmed anywhere - http://sportwitness.co.uk/new-twist-claims-watford-agreement-place-sign-brazilian-attacker/
Could this be why we're not signing a striker?
Still no excuse not to strengthen even if it's true.
Would he want to join a championship side though ?
9 goals in 7 games now in China
Not good enough, Ighalo has 15 (in 19)
Will marmalize this league.
Skip to 4:30
Skip to 2:10 and 3:20
When he joins we are actually winning the ******* league!
Will never play for us.
Looks like a Brazilian Lewis Mcgugan to me.
Praise doesn't come higher than that.
McG left Northampton Town in Jan 2018 and hasn't played since per Wiki. At the age of 29. Perhaps we should sign him up in this loan window as midfield cover ? I'm sure he'd be quick to tell you he has the class to be a premiership player.
I expect this will be confirmed as soon as the loan window opens
Isn’t that ‘shuts’?
I think you might be getting loans confused with emergency loans?
What's the APR on these loans ?
What happens when all the loans go back?
You find yourself all a-loan.
The window gets closed, and we all grow up and get jobs.
I hope they never go back.
‘Slams shut’, please.
And now it chills me to the bone
First goal is at the start, skip to 2:55 for his second. His 10th and 11th goals in his 8th game.
I’m a bit lost on this thread and life generally. Is there any real likelihood that we might get this chap?
Supposedly he's already ours.
Sport Witness know their onions, I don't see how anyone can doubt this. I'm fully expecting to see him form a great partnership up front with Alcacer in January with the odd assist coming from De Souza
I think the perceived Pozzo model is that we sign them for one, five, ten or 20 million when they are already worth considerably more. Unlike many others, who sign them for 15, 20 or 25 million when they are already worth considerably less.
Chalobah, Hughes, Deolefeu, Quina for example. It can't work every time, but when it does it is very satisfying. Looks like they've done it again with Talisca maybe. I think it is a pretty good model. It certainly seems to be a regularly effective one.
