    Best news of the season is that Sinclair was not included in his list of strikers.

    Maybe he he had no intention of subbing him on the other day and just made him take off the bib to put the fear of god into Gino.

    WBA seem the only Premier League side interested, and I don't think they have the cash. Whether we'll get that cash for Suarez or would splash it on one signing is another question. But as I and others have pointed out the Darwin Nunez (25m Euros) is a reasonable benchmark.

    Interesting quote from his agent. Say what you like about Suarez supposedly being focused on us for now, but it's interesting that he says there's nothing concrete from Marseille yet, and that Spanish clubs are apparently interested too. If he stays, fine, but if not, it would be nice if we could get a bidding war going

    If there is nothing beyond "interest", I see no reason he should not be involved against Oxford.

    Good that he's focused on us "even now we're a division 2 side", very kind of him given his prolific record and experience in top flight leagues.

    I wouldn't pick him (or other first team players for that matter) even if we were certain to keep him, if he gets injured, then we'd both be without him, but also can't cash in on him. Similar for the likes of Sarr, although I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a little run-out considering he didn't play at all against Scunthorpe nor Tottenham

    It's been an absolute privilege to have had him on our books.

    I’ve built up to much hate and resentment towards him for him to stay now. He needs to be sold so that I can kick and scream at how bad the Pozzo’s are and what a jerk Suarez is. Sell him ASAP.

    Can't see that myself, although it seems to be the way these days.

    Expect them to play whilst on our books. Very little chance they will get injured, but if they do and it means it stops a sale, great, they will come back eager to please in time for the more lucrative January sales.

    That could happen any time be it in a match or in training. Gray was expected to start for us but did his hammy in a pointless fixture v Spurs.

    I know the match doesn't mean anything, but with such a short pre-season I think it is actually a good opportunity for some of our players to build match fitness.

    Case to be made as well that showing he is part of the squad means we can demand more money.

    This guy went to whole hog and got Pedro tattooed on his forehead. I didn't have the heart to point out the spelling mistake.

    The tweet by FanaticOM originates from a report by Matthieu Margueritte in Foot Mercato, who contacted the agent (working for the Wasserman agency) of Luis Suarez. The agent said “I saw that there are a lot of things that came out, but I can tell you that there is nothing concrete with OM. There is, however, a lot of interest in Spain (Valencia and Atlético de Madrid, editor's note). But the player remains focused on Watford for now even though his side have moved down to the Second Division." Foot Mercato ask whether it is the end of the Suarez dossier for Marseille.

    I have read in other sources that neither Valencia nor Atlético de Madrid are in a financial position to buy Suarez at the moment.

    Thanks for the additional info. Of course you take any Valencia rumours this summer with a pinch of salt for sure, though I am a bit surprised to hear that Atletico aren't in a position to buy him. I know they bought Morata permanently, but surely they'd have a bit of money given that they finished 3rd and got to the latter stages of the Champions League? Supposedly we're saying we want €40m for him (how much would Sarr be worth then?), I don't see anyone paying that, but I also see us settling for less

    Wellbeck has done it for Man Utd and Arsenal, not to mention England, If and it's a big IF he can stay uninjured, and get some match sharpness, he would dominate this league, I think the big stumbling block with him is that he must be on massive wages, and possibly an appearance bonus.

    Hairyfrog: If he's on an appearance bonus we're laughing!

    Think I read somewhere that his wages weren't that much, but its more of a pay as you play deal so the appearance fee must be fairly big.

    I think that most people on this forum will be well aware of Valencia's financial difficulties. They have still yet to complete construction on their 54,000-seater stadium (after ten years) and their net debt is €274 million. Atletico Madrid recently paid off around €202m worth of debt to the Spanish Treasury, but they still have a net debt of €384 million (which was not helped when they spent heavily in last summer’s transfer market). This information was recently provided by UEFA and is available on various websites.

    A few weeks ago I read on some Spanish websites that Atletico Madrid were interested in our Luis Suarez. They said that Diego liked the aggressive style of the player, but suggested that Atletico Madrid was not in a position to pay the amount which Watford would want. It is too long ago to find these websites, but I seem to remember that they reported that the financial situation of Atletico Madrid has been badly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Correct, he's got as much first division experience as I have.

    Yeah I think it was something like £25k a week basic and £75k a week if he plays?

    Not really mate, I get what you mean and know your comment is a bit tongue in cheek, but if the only reason he is not playing is to save paying "pay as you play" bonuses, then we really are shafted.
    Play him, if he bangs them in and gets us promoted then he's earned his wage, if he gets injured he's back on not a lot of money.

    Welbeck would of been in the squad Friday night if they had any intention of keeping him.

    That rings a bell, decent gig if you can get it - 50k pay rise to kick a ball around for 90 minutes.

    Jerome Sinclair has more first division experience than Luis.
