    Apparently we're signing Nigerian striker Samuel Kalu. Plays for Bordeaux and listed as a right winger.

    I bet the 200m+ citizens of Nigeria are thrilled with that prospect!

    Same agent as Dennis. Intwestin.

    Bit old but he was good for Chelsea…

    Scratch that, I just googled him and unbelievably he’s still only 36 so right in Gino’s sweet spot.

    No, no, no... not at all. We're just looking for wingers out of the blue completely by coincidence.

    ....and Peter Etebo.

    Honestly, who cares at this point. Let’s just give Gino a pass and move on.

    Looks pretty mediocre. Decent dribbler who takes quite a lot of shots but doesnt score that much or create anything for others. Not really convinced he is a great deal better than either Cucho or JP, although obviously a different profile of player.

    To say I would rather this money was put towards the defence would be something of an understatement. Can't help but feel this is another favour being done to an agent.

    Samuel Kalu, is it you, yeah yeah yeah,

    or is it your 53 year old dad ??

    I have read that he has collapsed twice on the pitch, maybe he will only play home games to be near Watford General!

    He'll need a couple of seasons out on loan before he's ready

    He’s made the starting xi three times for a team sitting just above the relegation zone. He’s perfect for us

    I can't imagine he'll look any better after a couple of weeks with Watford

    Just think of all the loan fees!

  19. ".....Kalu to Watford Petkovic under pressure...."
    Sounds like another "kidnap his family and chuck him in the boot" signing.

    Honestly looks like a serious waste of money. I am struggling to find any positives. The *only* thing I can think of is that if you look at Dennis's stats from last season they are comparable to this fella. This big difference is that this guy has never scored a brace against Real Madrid. Biggest punt in puntsville.

    The Wobby have said there is nothing in it.

    Welcome Samuel

    Thank god, no more attacking players coming in means we get to keep Sema.

    I had a pasting table that kept doing that.

    My thoughts exactly. It doesn't address our biggest areas of need. It doesn't seem to improve us. If there's anything in this, it's just another random Gino move, about which we have no control.

    Ken Sema started our last league game.

    Google translated the replies from the report on from Bordeaux twitter:

    "unexpected good news"
    "am available to drop him at the airport"
    "good luck to his next coach. Forgets his shirt in the dressing room along with his motivation".
    "a scam this player".

    Excited about this one.

    That's definitely a "Nigerian 24".

    Cannot believe he is only 24. Is Gino really finally seeing our current squad are full of past-it old timers who cannot give half a damn about Watford as a club and just pick up a wage then play Bingo?

    Don't get too excited until AL denies the rumour

    As an aside to this point, has Kevin Affleck been fired by Watford do we think? His name is no longer attached to any articles, he isn’t featured in interviews and seemed to crop up very rarely after the incident regarding the tweet where likened a kid being stabbed to Foster and Deeney being criticised by fans….

    I know the club got a number of complaints.

    Think his Twitter has disappeared too.

    Hope they confiscated his phone. Otherwise poor 352 might get the blame again.
