    Agreed. Note sure how many of our starting X1, if any, would be able to bridge the gap to PL standard.

    Pedro at most I reckon.

    Sarr if he ever regains his confidence is probably good enough for a lower third PL side. And I want to see more of him but Porteous has shown some good signs of quality and competitiveness so far. I guess possibly Louza too but that's a tough call given his injury proneness.

    Maybe replacing richarlison is a bit OTT but he was one of the few offensive additions! I’m assuming making Delefeu a perm is a zero sum game squad wise.

    Yes even Pedro is more about skill and potential at this stage rather than actual PL quality output in terms of goals and assists.

    Up there with Joao and Sarr for goal contributions this season.

    He's a fantastic example of a player that works hard to get as much out of what talent he has. Its a shame his talent isn't up to Prem standard as he's definitely got the mentality for that level

    Just had an interview on BBC Breakfast talking about his stammer.

    Sema is utterly wonderful. I wish all our players were Nordic and had stutters. Imagine a team with Sema sending crosses into Helguson. That's a Watford team we could all get behind.

    Generally quiet today, and did occasionally get caught out at LWB, but he got his assist so I can't really grumble!

    MotM at the weekend, but does he fit in the team? Martins has been good on the left (I thought even on Saturday when things weren't quite working out for him he was bright), and Sema is pretty ineffective on the right, but he was at LB at the weekend, and his supposed rivals for that spot are hardly tearing it up

    Granted, Sema is not really a natural defender

    I'd have Sema as our starting left back with Morris as cover.

    Martins is 'bright', Sema is more effective.

    Ken is going to a player I think most of the fanbase are going to genuinely miss when he leaves/retires in a season or two. He's not the most technically gifted of players but he gives you 7/10 most games and obviously has a lot of time for the club. A bit like Cathcart in some respects, he is a person who will be fondly remembered and always given a warm welcome on any return to the Vic.

    Sir Ken of Sema is getting close to being Sir Lloyd of Doyley v 2.0

    Sema has hardly put a foot wrong in his cameos at LB this season and provides us with much needed extra attacking threat. He should be starting there for sure. He's also one of the few players we have whose attitude, bravery and determination is always there.

    His directness was a breath of fresh air after watching the inverted wingers dithering around and running (slowly) into dead ends constantly and Lewis offering nothing either.

    A season or two? He's only 30, Pozzo will have him hanging around until he's at least 35!

    Particularly if he is as effective compared to the rest as on Saturday!

    Tbf Martins has probably been our best player this season, out wide is definitely our strength. Wouldn't mind seeing both with Sema at LB, even if it isn't completely natural to him

    Suddenly legend status starts to creep up on King Ken.

    We'll be fortunate if we can keep him beyond this summer.

    If he continues to win games for us like tonight and perform 7/10 each week he is bound to attract interest. However I do hope we can keep hold of him, he has been here a long time and is almost part of the stadium foundations.

    Before Pozzo shifted the goalposts with the quality of player we suddenly had the pleasure of watching, Sema would be seen in a similar light to say, a John Eustace, or a Jay DeMerit. Not the most technically gifted, but a reliable likeable grafter, who seems to have a genuine affection for the club.

    Will likely hit 150 apps for the club by the end of the season, and can look back on some very solid displays, along with his not insignificant role in a promotion campaign. That's cult hero status, for me.

    Agree with this. Reminds me of a later day Tommy Mooney in some ways, what he lacks in ability he makes up for in attitude, commitment and also how he conducts himself off the pitch as well. Considering the last few years we have had in general, it is somewhat refreshing.

    I hate to admit I was wrong but with Ken I will gladly bite the bullet and say I was very very wrong. Among a sea of bang average players he's standing out as the one player who gives a cr*p, and for that alone you have to admire the bloke. You're winning me over very quickly Mr Sema.
