I would be amazed if we get a forward with a reasonable level of Premier League experience in the January window, particularly with so many teams in the relegation mix. I would definitely take Deeney - he would probably only be back up to Benteke anyway. Or come on to play along side him if we were chasing a game. It also might push Benteke having some competition for his place.

It was surprising how many headers he won against Kelly, the taller guy. Not sure if that’s a comment on Kelly’s ability or Long’s really, but Long was good at buzzing about and making a general nuisance of himself.
And did you notice he faded out of the game second half? He's a poor man's Defoe.

Who didnt fade in the 2nd half for saints. Long in our team would be very effective. Wouldnt score 20 a season like benteke once could but would tire out defenders massively with his channel running and exploit gaps for Wilf. Not sure that Deeney however is the same player he was 1-2 years ago and most his best appearances come from the bench.

If a rival wants to sell us a player like Deeney or Long in the middle of the season, its because

a) they have lined up a better replacement

or

b) theres something wrong and they want rid.

So... No

I don't want Troy Deeney. I have too much respect for his connection to the Watford fans who are generally decent. He belongs there with them.

I quite like him. Despite some 'issues', a heart on sleeve sort of character that 3 years ago would have been a definite yes. But at this stage of his career, at that price, with that history? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Just No!

Interesting looking at the early posts on this thread. Mushroom had it spot on (in July), he reckoned Deeney had "18 more months at the top level". The bloke looks woefully unfit and bored with football, and has started misbehaving. The Pozzos may get rid in the Summer. The fans are quickly becoming disillusioned.

Proven to have done rather well actually

15 goals 2 seasons ago

10 goals last season

How many are you expecting someone we are signing as back up\ bench option to have scored in the last couple of seasons?

He would be great in a 4-4-2 and also off the bench imo. He is only 29, so hardly finished.

Almost half those goals are penalties. Deeney was a competent premier league striker but people were calling for him to get into the England squad, I stand by the claim that he was overrated and never a good player at this level, just an average one. This is beside the point really as where did I say he wasn’t good enough to be our back up striker?
