    Improved bid of €22.5m - the guy is 27, doesn't seem like a Pozzo type signing

    Never ******* heard of him though, anyone (pretended) seen him play?

    I've been watching SSN for over an hour and us 'upping our bid' hasn't been mentioned once.

    Particularly taken by the highlight of having the ball kicked into his stomach and it rebounding into the goal. That was a highlight!

    He looks alright otherwise but then any player should on a 'best of' video.

    Please. Just anyone upfront will do at this stage

    As I said he is a like for like Deeney replacement with a little more finesse in the final third but just as clumsy as Deeney looked once upon a time. Works tremendously hard akin to Deeney and has very similar characteristics. Gets the ball into the net although not in the prettiest fashion but might be interesting to see what he can do with better service from our midfield.

    Does anyone think we may have let Fessi go too soon?

    Depressing amount of money for a fairly average looking striker.

    In those highlights he certainly looked an all-effort type. Some nice headers, pretty mobile and surely a better option than Okaka at any point in a match.

    Watford Observer also saying Success would be allowed to leave if a forward comes in.

    Agreed. Never heard of him, can't even be bothered to look him up on Google or watch a highlights video but am up for it so we get that "he could be amazing..." feeling until the first time we see him on the pitch and he falls over his feet like Oulare.

    Big no from me. As someone else said no real improvement on Deeney

    Yep exactly. He will inevitably be garbage but at least we'll all be calm until 4.45 on saturday, when we've been spanked by brighton.

    I did start to google him but emilia clarke came up as the recommended search and I got distracted, so I guess we'll never know his stats.

    Really looks pretty average and no great tarck record in France at the age of 27.
    I guess we are down to #17 on Gino's list where the key criteria of fee, salary and lack of any competition are all ticked. Really don't see what we would spend that sort of money on this guy. Less likely to succeed in the prem than Vydra ! Despite the fact we urgently need a striker I'd be quite happy if we fail to sign this guy. Would prefer us to spend £15m on Dawson.

    Good tactic, Watford. Link us with such a slow, cumbersome striker that we're happy to go with Deeney and Gray.

    Ha, the first thing I thought of from watching the highlights video was that he looked like the Argentinian Deeney.

    One of the most uninspiring highlights reels of any striker I've seen us linked with since getting promoted.

    It's bad enough having one Deeney, let alone two.

    I'd rather we didn't sign any more strikers than this guy.

    I'm the total opposite. I'll be happy to sign literally anyone, provided they're foreign and have a smashing sun tan.

    Maybe we should use this tactic with Troy?

    Meanwhile Bournemouth are trying to sign Danny Welbeck

    I don't think so - if we kicked the ball into Deeney's stomach it would just get stuck.

    Absolutely perfect together. Welbeck is ****.

    Might be interesting to see what Deeney and Gray would do with better service from the midfield.

    Unfortunately better than anything we have though

    We have better than Welbeck.

    Really ? Who ?

    A player who has spent all his career at Man U and Arsenal and played and scored many times for England.

    Who is better than him ? Gray ? Okaka ?

    I agree, instead of Richarlison trying to dribble it in himself. The issue is two injuries (Gray and Deeney) and we literally have nothing but 40 minute man Stefano Okaka and whatever midfielder fancies a go up top thia week.

    Ah but buying decent players for lots of money doesn't guareantee success you know. Oh no, we will still finish above them and they will be bankrupt. Oh yes ....We never wanted any of these players anyway. No, really...
     
  34. GoingDown

    GoingDown Pizza & Figs

    Yes.

    Thankfully, I'm not blinded by the fact he's been **** at Arsenal and Man Utd or injured his whole career.
