    Gray going is a momentous event. The great reset is truly upon us!

    Refreshing to read a mainly balanced view for a change. :)

    With Gray gone for a while, it should free up some of my time. lol

    Another one bites the dust.

    Whereas Troy’s move did bring about some feelings of sadness, I find myself feeling overwhelming relief that Andre’s torrid time at Watford has come to an end.

    I hate to break it to you Manat… but you do realise he only has a year left on his contract.

    You know when you were a kid and your parents told you the family dog/hamster/goldfish had gone to live on a farm?

    It hadn't.

    Did it go to QPR?

    Some might say that would be a similar fate

    Gray is gone... at last.

    On the other hand we've lost the legend that is Marc Navarro.

    Mixed feelings, mixed feelings.

    6 or so months ago when i said it was time for Success, Deeney, and Gray to not be here for the following season as they not good enough for Watford PL, I never thought it was gonna happen as quick as this tbh. Not all 3 by end of August.

    Shame we had to go through the most difficult season (financially) since the collapse of ITV Digital with these leeches.

    He might score 30 goals in the Championship and Watford may decide to keep him thinking he's good after all. lol

    Average wage in the Championship is apparently 29k a week.

    Given there was a link on here yesterday talking about QPR taking on 33% of his wages I think it's certainly not impossible they're paying north of 20k a week.

    You'll love this list too then:

    https://vimeo.com/tbamd/videos/page:1/sort:alphabetical/format:detail

    It's sorted in year order so the first Curve video appears on page 18:



    Videos do vary quite a bit in quality but some are semi-professionally shot.



    Neubauten from 1984 is jaw-dropping. Sounds like vomiting from the depths of hell .... in a good way.

    Nice to share it with fellow connoisseurs :)

    Even Andre Gray being at Watford lead to something positive.

    The striker joined Watford FC in August 2017 and has scored 21 goals in 125 appearances.

    I am sure there are CBs with better records from smashing their skull into corner balls? Maguire?

    Good post. He’s been rubbish, but worse than having a rubbish player on the books is spending £30m on wages and the transfer fee - and that sits on the club. Gray is clearly not the brightest and his lockdown antics were stupid. It is a move that has never worked out for us or him. There have been some good moments and decent contributions but all too rare.

    I can’t say I’d realised so many people were rattled by him cupping an ear at Newcastle - weird thing to get upset about.
     
  31. Yes but that’s ignoring his superb touch, build up play and the number of chances he created for others.

    He only started 59 of those matches.
    Big difference to comparing with players playing every week.

  33. Agreed. Minutes per goal is the only fair measure. His goal scoring record actually isn't that bad.

    In most of the seasons he was here he had our best minutes per goals record; not that it meant too much when all our other forwards have been so terrible.
