    I’m with the Sarr ain’t that good group. Who would you rather have? Sarr? Or 2013 Abdi? Abdi in a heartbeat for me, let alone if I was to ask the same question about 2013 Vydra.
    Had Sarr cost us £5m then nobody would bat an eyelid, as he cost us £30m he has been consistently utter gash. A £30m player should tear the championship a new one! Mitrovic style
     
  2. £26m if the correct ex rate is used.

    I disagree. If they aren't putting 100% effort in, they will be pretty useless.

    You didn’t answer the question? ;)
     
  5. True ! Both great players at champ level. Different players so difficult to choose. Maybe Abdi was helped by playing with the quality of Deeney & Vydra in front of him whereas Sarr had very little quality upfront to play with at Champ level, as it seems may be the case again this season. As you say the fee, which isn't his fault, is rather a millstone round his neck from the fans point of view.

    Also a pointless question to ask
     
  7. Everything on a football forum is pointless. As are the team most weeks :).

    Exactly, it was a strange purchase even taking into account the exchange rate ;)

    Am very concerned about whether we should buy Holton (good but dead) or Afobe (alive but ****)

    One mitigating factor which has to be remembered in assessing Sarr's impact in the Championship is that he was often close to a one man attack for, starting from right-wing.

    His "support" in attack was mostly Ken Sema, Troy Deeney and an even more raw JP.

    Let that sink in for a bit.

    Fair enough that people could still have asked for more from him at times, but even then he did still drag us to promotion. The home game vs Reading in February is one of those which first springs to mind. He pretty much won us that game on his own inside the first 15 minutes.

    Here's the highlights again for those with short memories; two corkers:

    Sarr is gash and doesn't want to be here. Manaj will score 13 goals this season, we don't need Sarr.

    That was a very memorable display, yes. But in my opinion it was his best of the campaign, not representative of his general performance levels.

    One thing less obvious thing Sarr was excellent at was tracking back. If you play with wingers, it’s not just about the goals and assists, it’s their overall game. He carried that forward line in the promotion year. Pedro couldn’t score for toffee, after a good start and Deeney was Deeney

    Nope.

    He had poor form for the last couple of months last season, therefore he was DREADUL for his ENTIRE WATFORD CAREER.

    I have a short memory but I’m definitely right.

    I’m one of the more positive Sarr people - but it was more than a couple of months last season.

    If you’re sarcasm is meant to be a backwards way of supporting your stance on Sarr, probably best to come from a more accurate perspective on last season at least.
