    The thing I like the most there is how comfortable he is dribbling and shooting with both feet - it's a real benefit for an attacking player to be able to take a defender on down both sides.

    Isn't he more of a CF?

    Seems his creative stats eg passing and dribbling aren't all that, but he's good at finding room to get shots away.

    Some on here wrote him off after a game or two as well .

    Think we used him as a CF in the academy and he's played some mins for York there this season, but he's mostly been used out-wide during his loan

    Hungbo looked much more lively for Ross County in the Scottish Premiership than he ever has for us, or for most of his time at Huddersfield tbf, not knocking Pollock, who might develop to a Championship level defender in the future (OK he's always going to be limited by his lack of pace, but he is really young), but for now, there is a gap between Scottish Premiership level and Championship level

    Another goal and another winner for Fabian Forde for York.

    He makes finishing look effortless (despite the awful build up to the goal). He's started the last 2 in a row now which has only happened one other time this season. Really want him to nail down that starting position and still maintain a decent scoring record for the rest of the season.

    Thanks - no idea why I called him "Fabian Forde" rather than Shaq - a throwback to 20 years ago ? Interesting commentary for the last few seconds there, something like "...pleased for him as he's had a little bit of criticism lately but i think his bad form..." and then it cut off.

    Well, he is Fabian's son...

    Pollock doing well at Aberdeen.

    They have won 6 in a row

    Pollock hasn't conceded for 6 games (Aberdeen have only conceded once in that time when Pollock was off injured), since they played Celtic in February

    Pollock is playing in a back 3 though, which will help a bit to cover his major lack of pace.

    I think a back 3 could probably end up working, we just need a defender with some pace who can actually pass without being a liability. Doesn't even really have to be that good at defending, even.

    Intrigued by Shaq Forde. A lot of our great big hopes from the academy have been strikers that have smashed it in age group football but either couldn't get in the team or couldn't score in senior football.

    He seems the opposite, don't remember him ever being particularly prolific for the academy but he's got nine for a struggling York in the National League at the rate of a goal every 140 odd minutes.

    Would like to think we'll take a look at him in pre season and has an outside chance of being in the squad (depending on what our ambitions are for next season).

    Never know I guess - certainly worth a go.

    York fans seemed a bit mixed with their views on him going by the comments posted here earlier .

    Yeah saw those. Can work on other stuff but sticking the ball in the back of the net regularly in senior football was beyond those other academy strikers and you can't teach that!

    Now your guess is as good as mine, but we have Bayo contracted to next season, and possibly Assombalonga, who are two players who haven't looked out of place as squad players, in an ideal world, we'll get a main striker in, which would kind of leave Forde redundant as a squad player, I'd loan him to L2, possibly L1 and see how he fares with a view to getting him in the squad the next season

    Salernitana stay up thanks to Ekong's 3 starts so we should be due a small windfall to go towards the Rebuild.

    Do they actually have to buy him or is it just an option.

    Not sure, just remember there was a survival clause

    Our own website story states


    Watford FC confirms that defender William Troost-Ekong has joined Serie A side Salernitana in Italy for the remainder of the 2022/23 season, on a loan deal with an option to purchase.

    Salernitana will pay the Hornets a loan fee for Troost-Ekong’s services, with a clause in place for a further fee should the club, based near Naples, retain their Serie A status.

    The article says they'll have to pay another €2m if they want to make it a permanent deal. They've already paid €900k to borrow him for half a season.

    According to the Watford blurb there is a further fee to make perm. It says option so that would usually require a further fee or clauses

    Hogg-DEENEY!!! Squad Player

    Seems unlikely considering he's not been a regular, but I suppose €900k for half a season is a good deal for us. Think we'll struggle to find someone who wants him enough to pay in the region of €2m for him, but I wouldn't mind having him back

    Audio was a bit off for the Orient game, which is just as well because one of his challenges would have been very naughty otherwise!

    There you go. Now who said there wouldn't be any further inbound movement before the window slams shut ? Ye of little faith.

    Pollock off - have been suggestions he might go out on loan .

    Wow, that sounds a serious injury, no wonder he's been recalled.
