    Deulofeu is our best player of modern times, he doesn't even have to play at his best to keep us up - look at how much our season and with it our hopes of staying up collapsed when he got injured. Part of why we're struggling is we still don't have a player close to his caliber to provide that additional threat on the left and thus stop teams doubling up on Sarr (time will tell with Dennis and/or Cucho, but we don't have the luxury of much of that right now).

    I've watched Udi a few times lately (for my sins) and it's pleasing to see Del Boy still looks very pacey & mobile. He also doesn't shy away from getting stuck into challenges, so the injury doesn't appear to have affected his confidence. They've been playing him in a more central roll though, which I don't honestly think suits his game.

    In fairness it's the position where he played his best stuff for us!

    I wonder where Winston Reid will end up.

    They're really missing a striker since selling Okaka - as talented as Deulofeu is (and to a lesser extent Pussetto), they're not strikers and it's showing (only 2 teams have scored less goals)

    He is a defender, unfortunately injury prone, he' s 33 now, unlikely to be any better than Cathcart .... but he is Free = Watford 5 year deal !!!

    Sam Johnstone At WBA contract expires next summer and from Jan he can talk to clubs… if got on a free next year or in Jan for a small fee?

    Would be a good signing for us, but unlikely to happen in January as there would be too many unknowns. The only chance we'd have is if West Brom miss out on promotion and we stay up. Two big if's.

    I would expect there would be a few clubs a little further up the food chain than us who would be interested in him also. So the chance of getting on a free (or lowball fee) would be extremely slim I'd say.

    **** that stupid bald **** of a ref and Mike Riley too. ******* joke, billions and billions spent on this **** competition and constantly getting obvious things so wrong.

    Sorry for the bad language it’s just so infuriating, it took MOTD 30 seconds to show how it’s not a foul. Thank you Ian Wright.

    Wrong thread?

    But yes should have been a goal (and also Leeds could have got a penalty)

    Oops was meant to be in the match thread.

    Just watched Vydra get punched in the head and that’s not a pen?!

    As they said Lloris gave away a penalty v Portugal for the same thing in the Euros!

    That was my first thought, but I don’t suppose it’s too wild to think Chelsea might sign an established central defender in January.

    It’s possible Rudiger is leaving next summer, so it’s not inconceivable they’ll sign a long term replacement for him in January given they’ll be challenging on several fronts.

    If that’s the case, I could see them loaning Chalobah out to get regular minutes between now and Rudiger leaving. If he was out on loan, probably not many better options than us, given our crap selection of defenders. He’d basically be certain to start every single game.

    Unlikely to happen I agree, but I can see there being circumstances under which it might happen.

    I'd have taken this a lot more seriously if we hadn't just signed Nkoulou

    Definitely not Chalobah, but they will probably have one too many CBs when they are all fit. Said it many a time...Malang Sarr.

    There is no chance of Trevoh Chalobah joining us. Tuchel was raving about him less than 72hrs ago and he’s getting a new contract. Seems firmly to be part of the 1st team picture now.

    Not to mention the initial link in the OP is a Turkish journalist who spouts nonsense looking at his Twitter feed.

    You're forgetting the #Ginofactor

    He can get any player to join us. Except Diego Perotti, Juan Iturbe, Paco Alcacer and Maxwel Cornet.
