    Who's that bloke Southampton were duped into signing in the 90's who played about 5 minutes and then was subbed back off and never seen again?

    Sema is worse than him.

    Really don't understand why he was brought on today. He didn't really do much defensively and offered nothing going forward either. He also looked shattered after 20 mins.

    Pedro or Cucho surely would have been better.

    He’s an absolutely dreadful player and we are lumbered with him for another 3 years. A couple of goals against Rotherham is not going to change this. His contract extension was scandalous.

    Did he score 5 goals in 41 appearances in the Championship?

    Funny enough he was given a 7.52 on the BBC player rater. But then the ratings can be pretty bizarre on this - not helped by the fact that people are able to rate the players at any point in the match (and I imagine they can give a player a 9 for a Hollywood pass in the first minute who does nothing for the rest of the match but they can't change it).

    Seems like he was brought on today to help solidify and did...an okay job? Made a few tackles, didn't give the ball away much (not as much as Kucka anyway!). Not the best sub performance, but not the worst.

    But agree he's mostly been poor when he's featured. Hasn't been needed much as he plays in the one area we have a decent bit of depth.

    He'd have got 6 in 40.

    I've just looked up Ali Dia and those player stats look like a joke, he must have the least productive career of any professional footballer by some margin - 30 appearances, just 4 goals and 2 of them in non-league!

    He was brought on because he is a Roy favorite. All he needs is a goal from one of this cameos and Roy will have a big decision to make, he will have to drop one of King or Sarr for Sema for the rest of our games.

    Not good enough at premier league level , but I think some people have already forgotten how poor the championship actually is . He’ll be useful for us next season ,5 goals , 5 assists is a decent return.

    Wait. Zinckernagel has those numbers already this season and we are assured he’s extremely average at that level.

    Not sure what your point is but end product is generally what I would want from our attacking players.

    Think it's pretty widely accepted/blatantly obvious that both Sema and Zinckernagel are average/decent Championship players

    The T-shirts are still worth more than the player.

    That is genuinely one of the most embarrassing products I've ever seen for sale.

    Seeing as we are going to be playing a system with wing-backs, I guess that gives Sema a possible place in the team for next season? Ideally it would be Kamara who seems to fit that role to a tee, but because he's actually quite good, he might not be here...

    If we have to play Sema in any position next season then I will personally write a letter of apology to Rob Edwards.

    Blimey, could you imagine if we had Ebosele on the right and Kamara on the left. Very nice.

    Won't happen though. Kamara will be one of the first out of the door.

    A little bit from the Swedish press about King Ken :D
    Both Bologna and Hellas Verona are showing interest. In all fairness they're don't usually fill articles with BS reports.

    Ken Sema belongs to Watford and has a contract that extends until June 2023.

    Now Le Bombe di Vlad states that Bologna and Greece Verona are showing interest in recruiting Sema. However, Watford will not want to release the 28-year-old right now.

    According to FotbollDirekt, the player is valued at between SEK 20-25 million.

    Longer article soon.

    I definitely missed the SEK before the 20-25m valuation and laughed out loud. That's between £1.6m-£2m in proper money.

    0 SEK is 0 GBP which is the correct valuation

    Possibly around that. I'm concerned that we're reluctant to sell!!

    Was widely reported (though not announced) that he signed an extension to 2025 near the end of our last Championship season. Should help us fend off any offers for our star man.

  30. Actually £7.8m if the correct ex rate is used.

    Move the decimal to the left. Then remove the "m".

    Ideal to shift on at that price

    Low end output even in the Championship and will be on more money than previously due to his stupid new contract

    Get rid and use Hungbo instead. Decisions like these aren't that difficult to make, why do we insist on keeping utter todd around the squad?

    I know its a minority opinion, but in the Championship last time he was not atrocious. Not sure playing for Ross County last year automatically makes Hungbo a better squad selection for the upcoming season. So i guess we have to trust decisions on keeping Ken this season will be influenced by the first team head coach.
