I'd agree the money needs to be spent, I've heard Burnley linked with a £18m bid for Nottingham Forest's Brennan Johnson. As a Lincoln City fan he spent a year on loan with us last season and was fantastic, but the premier league is another matter. Seems to be quite highly regarded though.

Yeah as a Josh King captainer i'm quite happy about that, Watford were going to get turned over by Burnley for sure the way they were going. As a Burnley fan I can understand you being frustrated at this though!
Hadn't seen the link with Johnson, thought Brentford were after him, but its the sort of signing we should be going for and would be pleased if it were true.

Not too bothered about Ranieri going, I don’t give the "new manager bounce" much credence and Watford are still going to be terrible.

FS Record: FPL: Similar to Everton - haven't cracked the top 10k glass ceiling yet, neither have I had and sub 500k shockers either!
International tournaments: Better, 11k in WC 2018 and top 1000 way back at Euro 2012!

Think it was Daniel Storey on the totally football show saying it when I was listening earlier.

Yeah their squad isn't good is it, whoever is in charge. Sarr being back may make a difference if he is though.

I have a soft spot for Watford, my mother's family were supporters and I went to a few games there as a kid (in the old D2/D3). But I'm not a fan of Pozzo Enterprises Inc. Hopefully Burnley will turn them over on 5th January, would just like a King goal for my FPL team, maybe in a 2-1 Burnley win. A Burnley CS would help me a lot in draft, though.

Actually, I think Watford have a very decent squad. The new signings all look good and they have capable forwards.

Norwich are a dangerous team to play. The last 2 managers that lost to them got sacked the next day. :lol:

That Ranieri was too young and inexperienced… presumably Fergie and Arsene turned them down :wink:

Christian Eriksen is training with Ajax ahead of a potential to move to Brentford on a 6 month contract. Plenty of Danes there to help him settle in!

Fair enough. Though, she was Danish and is definitely associated with pigs.

She would have provided a Denmark to pig link, but my conventional/boring mind was totally ignorant of her 🤷‍♂️

Only 15 years old! No surprise most of the European heavyweights are being linked with him already. Unless you enjoy cringey annoying music ignore the last 20 seconds :wink:

Hopefully they'll implement MFA such as to make it harder to multi-team.

Kind of interesting reading about PL teams bumbling about in the transfer windows. It feels like Arsenal should have signed about 5 players by now, but it looks like they'll end up with zero. Conte's missed out on Traore.

Foster pictured back in training. Guess that's bad news for most.

Funny fact: Watford are now on their sixth manager since they last kept a PL clean sheet.

He never missed. When he was standing on his own goal-line, that is…

Took me a long time to accept the possibility that any player called Traore could ever be any good, and still unconvinced… Adama, well, he’s fast, but so is Usain Bolt, and it didn’t make him a top level footballer despite his efforts…
