    I don't know how else I'm meant to judge any attacking player than looking at their goals and assists.

    He has some flair it must be said, he seems to play on another level at times, to me, he's class.

    Which comes back to my original point.

    Gray, **** at football has 4 assists in his time with us. Pereyra has 5

    His contribution has been average for a player in his position, hence why no big clubs have come in for him over the years

    Out of all the players in our squad, this player is the one that's gone downhill the most the last 12 months or so to me. Become lazy beyond belief considering what he is capable of when he puts in the effort. Particularly without the ball. Dunno whats happened to him.

    But how much xP and xPTO has Pereyra had compared to Gray.

    Whatever they mean.

    I think the definition of xPTO is on the next page.

    The classic pozzo signing who unlike, say, Capoue or to an extent Gerry, they have been unable to extract his real talent out of for any length of time.

    The reason we could buy a player like him from Juventus in the first place is because he is lazy and inconsistent. The pozzo model is based on being able to somehow get more out these type of players than has been possible previously.

    It’s clear he is the one player who doesn’t buy into Pearson and isn’t at all bothered about fighting for the team/his place in the team.

    Get rid, he has nothing to add to the team anymore.

    Really split on him at the moment, one part of me would be perfectly happy to send him to Udinese in exchange for the Pussy Man, but on the other hand, he can still produce quality moments like today (and tbf he looked like he was up for it when he came on). Granted that goal wasn't the most important he'll score, but it could go down to goal difference, so you never know

    He's not good enough for our first 11 now, as amazing as that seems. But he's too good to be sat on our bench so it's inevitable he'll be off in the summer.

    He'll go with my best wishes and nothing but happy memories.

    Anyone saying things like get rid, he has nothing to add to the team anymore, are clearly unaware that it is necessary to have more than 11 players in a squad.

    Exactly. We are fans of the club but the way some are talking, you’d think they believe that playing for Watford should be the pinnacle of every players career.

    We’re lucky to have a player of Pereyra’s ability - but more than that, he genuinely has bought into the club and never kicked up a fuss about being too big a player as similar players of his ilk might’ve. I’ll be sad to see him go when he does.

    He’s not consistent, but the amazing thing is that we have an Argentine international of his quality who is not a certain starter for our first team.

    I was thinking Pussetto is going to be Pereyra's replacement, but maybe bringing in a fellow countryman will convince him to want to stay? Just a thought.

    I’m not convinced he’s a Pereyra replacement. I just think the club have decided it preferable to have another wide option who can play in a few spots, and through the middle if asked.

    Given the article the other day, I’d say he will replace Success. I bet we’ve been open to a departure for him for a while but now might actively be trying to move him on. In reality, Success should want to leave given how stale his career is right now. Every manager we have had has overlooked him. Time to get what we can for him and both sides can move on.

    Joao Pedro and Pussetto means there is absolutely no need for Success to remain now.

    Not if he takes his place on the bench !

    I reckon Bobby is just a bit short on pace. If he was a little quicker, mixed with his obvious technical ability, he’d be an absolute handful. Sometimes, it seems as though he’s just not quick enough over the first 5 yards to properly exploit his outstanding close control and consistently beat a man.
