It's staggering that this game was played AFTER the Scottish season got underway.

Congratulations Fulham, I guess.

I have a soft spot for both of them. Mainly because neither are Chelsea.

When I think of all our players that successfully made the step up from the second tier to the first, I can’t imagine many if any of them going missing in a game of this magnitude like Brentford’s ‘big’ players did tonight. That needs to be a consideration if we are going for any of them.

Be happy to pick one or two up on the cheap mind. After that, buying one of them is akin to buying something that’s got a bit of surface damage to it. You’ll expect a discount

Thought both teams looked very average tonight.

Neither Benrahma nor Watkins gave their Premiership credentials a boost. Not sure either is the answer on that particular showing.

I recall Tammy Abraham and Jack Grealish being completely anonymous at Wembley last season. Safe to say they’ve made the step up.

Benrahma and Watkins included.
That was our take. Based on what we saw, neither team had any players I'd be in a rush to pay multiple millions for.
Brentford will stay where they deserve to be, and Fulham are looking forward to their regular top flight spankings.

Is Watkins really any better than what we had in Gayle? Looks very similar to me

I grew up in Croydon, specifically after Chelsea had won the FAC 1970. Don't know what it was like much before, but after it was pretty grim.

What on earth has the Premier League done to deserve another year of Anthony Knockaert cutting in from the right before scuffing it out for a goal kick.

Can’t see them keeping him. Looks like he has lost pace. At times looked like a hamster in a wheel when chasing the ball.

I think he looks more willing and capable of putting himself about and operating as a target man than Gayle. Gayle seems to pretty much be a finisher and not much else. So as soon as he gets on a dry streak he looks pretty awful. Advantage of Watkins I think is he can play as a wide forward or as a CF now. He doesn’t have any real pace but is mobile and competes. Gayle doesn’t fit our squad that well but Watkins probably does I would say. The question hangs over does he have the quality to make an impact at PL without pace. Many do.

I have never been convinced in previous summer windows but he has undoubtedly improved, just not sure by how much and is that enough. Today wasn’t a great day for any of their team. He is often described as like Rashford but that must mean looks because he doesn’t have anything like that pace.

Interestingly he and Mitrovic are the top scorers in the Championship but neither have real pace. Pace + quality = PL

I'm no expert but, when Lewis Grabban is the third highest scorer in the Championship this season, we really must be very careful before thinking Watkins is the answer.


# Player Team Nationality Goals

1. Aleksandar Mitrovic Fulham Serbia 26
2. Ollie Watkins Brentford England 25
3. Lewis Grabban Nottingham Forest England 20
