    Seen a rumour that Nicholas Opoku will be coming over from Udinese to us on loan and Stuparevic will sign for Udinese.

    #WatfordFC reports on Udine that Nicholas Opoku is in his way to become Watford CB on loan from udinese while Filip Stuparevi* is set to sign a new contract with #Udinese although he was expected on London

    abodi only‏ @simple_abod
    To all #WatfordFC fans who might need an opinion on Opoku ... he is young and can improve a lot ... I don't think Italian football is a good fit to him and I am honesty happy if he moves away after causing 4 plenty last season but who knows maybe he can find himself on London

    Good back-up for Mariappa for the next few seasons

    TBF "... he is young and can improve a lot ... I don't think Italian football is a good fit to him and I am honesty happy if he moves away ..." could have been written about any of us when we were that young.
    He sounds a real gem.
    Prefer Stuparevic.

    He actually sounds like a back up for the back ups.

    This is the next step that Gino promised us after the cup final disgrace.

    Another cheap, useless defender who can’t get in the Udinese team. Ben Wilmot is surely a better option

    Per Wiki - "Opoku started his career with Kumasi Corner Babies, before moving to top tier club Berekum Chelsea."
    Sounds like he started very young and anyone with Chelsea on their CV can't be all bad. Would be playing for England now if he wasn't Ghanaian.
    Anyone can edit wiki though.

    Sounds like a longer term feeder club. A breast-feeder club or formula ?

    Can’t hack it in Italy where solid CB play is a cornerstone of their game.

    Get him in Gino.

    8m centre back should be unbeatable in the air.
  20. We’ve worked hard to secure tinpot status, great to see the club continues to value it so highly

    Udinese have supposedly signed a CB, so unfortunately there actually might be something in this.

    Well our run in the Prem has been great. Back to real football in the championship next season.

    45 seconds into that video he pulls up with an injury. We're definitely signing him then.

    Signing this guy would be a big "pok u" to all the naysayers around here.

    The guy they're signing, Rodrigo Becao from CSKA, at first glance seems to be exactly the type of CB we could do with at Watford as well. He's also Brazilian, so could have helped JP. A bit odd, and a bit disappointing. I can only wonder if he may have had issues getting a work permit.

    Well if anyone's going to have the inside scoop on this, it'll definitely be an Arabic Watford/Udinese fan Twitter account with 290 followers. Deal done!

    Edit: I think this might qualify as the shittest ever rumour posted on here
