    Okaka was still a sub warming up, I think it was the Holebas goal.

    Ah, maybe he's not leaving.

    Definitely one of the worst signings of the Pozzo-Premier League era.

    I think that's a little hyperbolic. I can think of way worse. Oulare? At least Okaka has been in and around the team.

    Not sure he'd even make top ten... Oulare, Diamanti, Ibarbo, Suarez, Berghuis, Sinclair, Djedje, Zarate, Kenedy, Zeegelaar all contributed significantly less.

    Agreed. I couldn't be bothered to think of them because, by their very nature, they're mostly the least memorable players of the recent era.

    Hyperbole? From Nath? Pah!

    True. But we were able to shift half of those relatively quickly. Okaka is expensive and useless and window after window nobody wants him. We might have him for another 2/3 years!

    I doubt he's expensive to be honest. He's a back up striker signed at the end of a transfer window from a club in a league that pays peanuts. But yes, contract here until summer 2021 must be a hindrance in shipping him out!

    35k a week. (If list is to be believed). Not massive but more than a number of 1st teasers and a long contract.

    Prodl extension on 45k a week looks awful business as well! We will never shift him.

    Penny smart/pound stupid. too clever to spend big money or wages on a decent, 1st choice centre back, but splurge loads on wages of players not even making our bench.

  16. As long as they don't take Britos. For God's sake, please not Britos too....

    If our relationship with Udinese is to be compared to a marriage, we are the most abusive husband there's ever been

    The memory of Okaka will forever live on through my avatar.

    You will be truly missed you giant Eddie Murphy.

    When's the testimonial?

    Scored for Udinese whilst we couldn't even score against Burnley.

    I can't believe there is now a Burnley equivalent in Serie A!
    I know Chievo Verona are known as The Flying Donkeys but that is such an insult to donkeys to call Burnley that.

    Properly **** goal too. Would've been a worthy winner of our game today. Loads of ricochets then he did a big loopy header into an empty net. Worth tracking down to see the legend Behrami getting in on the celebrations.

    “I don't want to talk about Watford anymore. I played against Liverpool and scored an important goal. The following week I didn't play. That’s enough.”

    Mate, you were never good enough.

    Did so well today taken off after 57 minutes, he would do better to just take the money, oh he does that anyway!

    To be fair, he was an absolute menace in that Liverpool game.

    There's a chap at the club who looks exactly like The Baby Eating Bishop of Bath and Wells and HE runs around more than Okaka!

    Don't think he is in Javi's plans even with Deeney 's injury.

    Might feel that for a few odd minutes here and there we can use youngsters. Having younglings get a few minutes will help recruiting at least.

    No involvement in the squad whatsoever tonight - hardly a ringing endorsement. He’s never going to get a game here so it’s best he just leaves.

    Finally managed to off load him. Permanent transfer to Udinese. Ok, still Pozzo owed, but at least he's off our books.
