    If he was in a top team with better players around him he’d be looking like a £40m + winger. It’s easier for opponents to snuff him out as they have nothing else to really worry about. With Villa making that mistake in game 1 and it getting highlighted clubs can work on our weaknesses in training and put us to the sword on a match day. We also don’t seem to have any other plan right now going forward. Basically we’re ****ed.

    Unfortunately our only consistently good left side attacking player since we first came up to the Prem under the Pozzos, apart from Richarlison for half a season. Both Dennis and Cucho (who needs to prove he's more than a showboater) need to step up their game so teams are more wary about doubling up on Sarr.

    All he does is look up who was MOTM in every match and picks a team from that.

    You can pretty much tell the game Sarr is going to have from his first run of the game.

    If he gets the ball, drives at his man and beats him early doors, he’ll be a force throughout.

    If he loses that first battle, it’s like he goes into his shell.

    We already knew he was the best winger in the Championship, so yesterday was no surprise.

    Needs to play with more confidence, but he’s got all the physical tools to terrorize almost anybody he faces. Hopefully a few more games like yesterday and it’ll properly click into gear for him. If he starts kicking on, I think he’s got the potential to almost singlehandedly keep us up.

    There are some interesting titbits and insights into Ismaila and his idiosyncracies, or indeed lack of them, in the new Athletic piece on him out this morning - one of which is that he was already married with a child on the way when he signed in 2019 - I certainly had no idea about that; I'm not sure if it has ever come out as public knowledge before?

    Overall the impression given is that he really does have his head screwed on as well as we concluded that he must have to have stayed and never caused any trouble, either this summer or last.

    Obviously, it also takes the form of a bit of a puff-piece, but it's nice to hear how highly regarded he is skill-wise around the training ground, because it suggests he does still have higher gears to switch up into, as well as how he is apparently now coming out of his shell as a character:

    I think he might be the quickest player I've ever seen y'know. Maybe Walcott in his early days. Just glides across the pitch and makes full backs with decent pace look like Carl ****inson. Would be interesting to see what time he'd get in 100/200m.

    Garth Crooks could literally **** on a piece of paper and it would make more sense than anything that comes out of his mouth.

    Agreed. What is even more upsetting is that we couldn't nudge Deulofeu back into the team. With him on the left, I feel like we'd have a fairly comfortable season scoring goals and dare I say it.. The strongest Watford forward line in recent years!?

    Prime Deulofeu gets in our current team easily, but does that version exist anymore? Is present day Deulofeu better than Dennis/King/Cucho?

    I can think of a few I reckon were potentially faster, but not many. He's definitely up there.

    Emmanuel Dennis perhaps?!

    We've probably got more pace up front this season than at any time since Loofa & Digger. Whether or not that translates into enough goals remains to be seen, but pace is a good thing at this level anyway.

    Don't think Dennis is quite as quick, but not too far behind.

    Walcott as WT said, Thierry Henry, Ronaldo Nazario all come to mind.

    Josh King said in his interview with the mighty GNW that he doesn't think anyone in the Premier League can catch Sarr, except for possibly Kyle Walker.

    Imagine how good he'd be if he was being coached by someone who knew what they were doing.
