Again and again in the UK big, strong tall players are favoured at the expense of being able to pass accurately at pace or to be able to read a match. It's the wrong way round. You can put a kid in the gym and bulk them up or improve their endurance but you can't teach genuine skill only hone it and teach them when and where to use it. It's the mentality that led to Wilf getting nowhere in England teams.

The club nearly didn't keep Wilf (and AWB) on because they thought they were too weedy. I mean FFS.

He did fine against Man City, Burnley and Spurs in the middle of the park that suggests there is something to work on.
It's the lack of pace for me, not so much his size. Although there is also a lack of power (I guess the faster you are the more powerful you become). He just looks too slow to me.

Very few players make it in the PL who aren't athletes. A player like Garvan and Ambrose for example never stood a chance at this level despite being excellent technically.

But again that's a failing in coaching, sports science and physical performance departments (things that I'm not even sure we had when we got promoted). Are you seriously trying to tell me that people can't become fitter and stronger through appropriate training regimes.

Ambrose had really bad injury problems which is what did for him. As for Garvan how do you know Ollie was the one who binned him off without giving him a chance the same Ollie that presided over the purchase of 9 odd useless players and told Andre to do one because he'd had a dream.....

He won’t be cheap and so a big gamble. I would prefer Forests Ben Brereton, younger and probably a lot cheaper - worth a punt!

Palace believed to have made an offer of Cash plus Kaikai to get Watkins.

I can see the partial sense in that. Not completely sold on Watkins, but think he is an improvement on Kaikai.

Great business.... not so sure..
They paid £1.8m for him a year ago.. I’d say it’s a risky move

Not sure what Brentford paid is relevant - when a 22 year old scores 10 goals from the wing in his first season in the Championship (one more in a cup) his value will always rise.

No idea how much we've offered, if we have at all, but adding Kaikai to the deal would be good business imo. Also good for Kaikai himself, he looked okay in the friendly, but would be surprised if he made the step up to the first team for a while.

Quadruple value for scoring 1 in 4.. Market is mental

There is a certain diminutive little guy who plays for Croatia and Real Madrid in midfield who is often claimed to be the best in the world, i think he would put your physical attributes theory to the test.

Silva, Joe Allen and Leon Britton are a few off the top of my head too.

Not sure a Brentford fan is particularly well placed for that judgement

I agree with the principal of picking up young talent in lower leagues. Rumour has it they want £16m. At that fee my principal changes. That’s a huge fee for someone completely unproven. I haven’t seen too much of him but the glimpses I have he’s looked to have a bit about him.
