    Haven't we been looking at him for a while?

    Absolutely brilliant player with only one start in Ligue 1 this season?

    My opinion only. If you think he's sh1t then I respect your opinion, but think you're well wide of the mark.

    From what i've seen he gained some hype after scoring two against Man City in the CL but aside from that hasn't pulled up any trees in Ligue 1 and can't get in the Lyon starting 11

    I don't think he is ****, just depends on your definition of "absolutely brilliant player" I guess. Nothing so far in his career suggests he is any better than someone like Niang for example

    He would be a brilliant signing for Watford, again just my opinion. Young, talented, has pace, has played and done well at a high level, can score goals. It would be a major coup if we got him. Put him up there with Deulofeu and Pereyra, then that would be something a little bit special.

    Apparently we're in talks with him and AC Milan are also interested, but we're willing to meet OL's 20M€ valuation.

    Best name since Billy Bob Bo Jangles or whatever he was called!

    Yes I believe we've been linked before. He seemed to be very promising, but as IRB said he's having a bang average season to date and is struggling to get in the first team. This could benefit us if we really are looking at him.

    Is he also a bit mentally unstable or maybe generally dodgy in an Andre Gray sort of way? This generally helps us locate the talent we can successfully attract.

    I bet gracia could get a tune out of him.

    In other news, the Lyon kit is utterly sensational.

    I agree, imagine that in yellow with red shorts. Would be the perfect kit.

  16. Personally I'd rather we put the effort into bringing Lukebakio along. Now that kid has got some real potential.

    Lol. More chance of signing Maxwell House.

    I’ve hated the corporate branding of the Adidas stripes ever since Forest and Birmingham wore them in the late 70s.

    I must say I liked that Forest shirt.

    Largely because I liked that Forest manager.

    Cloughie was GT with go faster stripes.

    If we sign him then the food outlets in the ground could really go to town.

    They could have a Hornet Cornet, this would be ice cream in a cone, which would honour new signing Maxwell.

    The theme could continue. If you wanted a Maxwell Cornet and Isaac Success combo, then you could just add a flake.

    About the name - would he consider changing it to "Ross Jenkins" because we haven't had one of those for a while.

    Works out at about 18 million squids pre-Brexit. My friend HB1 will only be happy though if it is below the 18.5 million paid for Gray! Still hope we get him especially as we might lose Doucoure and Pereyra in the summer.
