Least it will be warmer and he will probably stay fit..
Huesca's coach has already jumped ship to Espanyol and his top target for next season is... Cucho Hernandez. He's trying to get him on loan without an option to buy and Spanish press seem to think we'd be prepared to let him go on loan again:
Shame if true but we were always unlikely to get a work permit. At least if he goes to Espanyol, it's a bigger club, with a coach he knows and he will probably start most games in La Liga. Plus, there's the added bonus that Jurado can teach him everything he knows!
Hopefully he will command a reasonable loan fee now there's a bit of competition for him.
Good move I think if we can’t get a permit.
He's staying at Huesca for another season.
Makes sense if there was no chance of us having him.
can claim a Spanish passport this time next year I believe?
Hope he isn't as disgusting a cheat as his senior football side.
Featuring as their main striker in pre season which obviously bodes well for the coming season. All he needs is minutes and hopefully he can get them. Scored in their friendly today (even our strikers can do that) but all good signs for the future.
Arguably the biggest game of his career so far today. Kicks off at 5 against Barcelona, leading the line for Huesca. Good luck to the kid!
Scored inside 3 minutes!
And he scores the opener! (Losing 2-1 now though).
Was only from a yard out but reacted well to flick it in
it ended up 8-2 !!
Been called up to the Colombia senior squad for the 1st time today.
This is very good news. It will greatly improve Watford's chances of getting a work permit granted if he plays.
Celebramos la buena noticia de la convocatoria de @cucho1099 con la @FCFSeleccionCol absoluta para los amistosos frente a USA y CRC (11 y 16 de octubre).
I don't know much about him, haven't watched him play a lot but have followed football long enough to know the right "hype" signs and everything about this kid seems to be positive. Seems about as close to a guaranteed future star as you can get based on everything I've seen & heard so far.
I really hope we get to see him a Watford shirt one day. After the Richarlison sale surely Gino knows one 20 goal season for the kid and he's instantly commanding £50 million +
He's an exciting player. Small but very strong. The player most similar to him in our squad is Gray, but he's got a much better first touch. He's not afraid to shoot. A natural goal scorer. I think he'd fit perfectly in our squad for next season, but he will need to time develop. Premier League is a tough league, but he has all the attributes to do well for us.
Scored a couple of goals against Barca B last season, including a cracking free kick and nicked one in their 8-2 loss to Barca earlier this season.
I’ve heard a mix of Tevez and Aguero is the most accurate description and that is bloody mouth watering.

Jeebus calm down - he's not even scored a goal yet in La Liga, nor is he currently a nailed-on starter for Huesca.
Except this one?
Yes he has. And yes he is. He’s literally started every game but for one this season.
Fair enough to say people should temper their expectations though. But the signs are promising and it’s widely reported that we’ve already turned down big money from Barcelona for him - so I’d say it’s fair people have high hopes and excitement about him?
If Barca want him, is there any commercial benefit in his playing for WFC?
Wouldn’t we only see him at The Vic if he is to be sold to top Prem team?
Cucho's reaction to being called up for Colombia
Jeebus - wrong twice.
has this **** not been sold to Barca for 25 mill yet?
The lad is quoted as saying whatever happens, he knows he won’t be at Huesca next season but he has no idea what Watford have planned for him. His preference however, would be to continue in Spain with one of the big clubs.
Time to start preparing the Holebas Kidnap-Transfer Manoeuvre
Will never play for us unfortunately. Just look at him as an investment who's eventual sale may enable us to buy another 2 or 3 Oulare's and maybe a Berghuis or two.
Cheeky little ****. I hope he breaks his neck.
I’m not sure. I think that may well have been the initial thought but you would hope that Gino looks at our striking options and realises that a season at least with us should be the order of the day.
Two goals on his debut for Colombia after coming on as a sub. First was his first ever touch in international football. Colombia has a new hero and he plays for Watford (sort of. Ok, not really). Goals here:
Gracia is impressed with Cucho's development.
Watford’s head coach said: “In this moment I am focused on the players I have and Cucho is at another team. I know he is playing well but I am concerned only about the players we have here.”
Never. Gonna. Play. For. Us.
