    I would suggest that the value of the likes of Deeney and Ighalo has MORE than doubled since we sold Fessi last year. The market as a whole has gone mad with the likes of Ibe going for £15m.

    I agree, values have gone up on the whole, but only for players that are in demand. Special players have clubs going a bit crazy because they are so hard to sign.

    Ironically, the player we signed to replace him, Jurado, was sold 12 months later at a sizable loss.

    Not even special players. Wijnaldum went for €30m (ok he's good but not THAT good). Last season that would've got you Pedro. The season before that would've got you Lukaku

    Not in the Wednesday Squad this evening... apparently he refused to travel - head turned by newcastle but club say he will not be sold.

    Wednesday Fans will be on a serious fume - loved to hated in a week!!

    Do we have a % sell on - I expect that we have something substantial.

    Probably one of the reasons Watford B are reluctant to sell if half the money goes to us!

    Have a search for forestieri on twitter - mega fume - quite funny.

    £15m price being quoted.

    He's sulking because they took his Watford shin pads away. I think it's a totally justified and understandable reaction from him.

    Interesting to read he didn't want to play against Villa last week but was persuaded to.

    I'm glad he remained a legend long enough for us to sell him before he had the chance to go on strike

    Very conceivable that he has fallen out of love with football after being forced out of the only club he has ever truly loved. Being forced to play in front of the sort of fans who celebrate denying a team winning the league as if it's the biggest result in their history only adds insult to injury I imagine.

    It't bad enough being a cheat without turning into a bad apple as well!

    Well done Agent Nando.

    Wednesday fans are indeed up in arms. Talk of "he should never play for the club again" and "let him rot in the U21 team." The manager had apparently said that he "couldn't care less if Forestieri was unhappy." Chortle Chortle. He's obviously had his head turned and now showing his true colours.

    Very disappointed. Took me by surprise hugely, thought he was happy here, he gave off all those signals. Shocked.

    But also who the hell does he think he is, refusing to play for the club who pays you, your teammates, the fans who adore you. What an absolute pillock and as far as I'm concerned we should get rid and spend the money on players who want to play for the club. No one player is bigger than the club. Forestieri has shot himself in the foot here and let down a lot of people.

    Particularly those young Owls who idolise him and have his name on the back of their shirt. Hang your head in shame Fernando.

    At Watford, he was capable of a minor strop or two (See 00:51 when FF moped whereas Vydra and Deeney run back), but nothing anywhere this scale. Surprised as you are.

    He always had Troy to keep him in check, think the hero status might have gone to his head at Wednesday.

    Does Deeney run back? Doesn't look like it to me.

    What people don't realise is that Deeney and Forestieri sprinted half the pitch to get up with the play when Vydra had the ball. After doing that of course they're going to be absolutely knackered and unable to run back.

    I'm so happy. I've wanted to hate Sheffield Wednesday ever since that final day of the season but couldn't out of love for Fernando, this just makes it all the worth while.

    **** it I don't even care if he's not enough I just want him back. Please.

    Watford tattoo. He must have had that done in the last couple of weeks, as he didn't have it before. Good lad.

    Hilarious news tbh.

    Lol it's pretty funny really. Especially after all the Wednesday fans giving it large recently.

    Only proven one thing that he is a liar. Quoted on record in May that he doesn't want to leave and he wants to finish his career here. Yeah sure a lot of players say that, but makes him a hypocrite nonetheless.

    Crazy how he can go from hero to zero just like that. You can have him back and we'll take Vydra and Anya in return!

    Perhaps he doesn't realise how massive Sheff Weds are. You have to tell him so he knows.

    The story so far: In the beginning Fernando Forestieri was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move by anyone not supporting Watford. The biggest club in the known universe(s).

    If you couldn't see that you were merely a rebound from us then you deserve to be f**ked over really.

    He spent the entirety of last season wearing Watford shinpads ffs [​IMG]

    Did he? He was part of a promotion winning team with us. Remind me what league your lot are in? As for making his name he did that here, you would not have bought him otherwise. I think nando just doesn't like being the big fish in such a small pond, I understand his decision making in wanting to leave the owls.
