The List 2017. 22/05/2017

Posted by Matt Rowson in Thoughts about things.

Let it not be said that we’re glad that’s all over…  but here’s your summer list of players linked with the Hornets since the close of the January window, a list that will be kept up to date throughout the summer so bookmark if you Like This Sort Of Thing.  A very low bar of credibility is employed, but a mere “I think Watford should sign…” falls below it.

I personally would hope we keep Success. That lad has got immense talent, and i believe he needs consistent game time to really come of age. I feel he never really got a good run of games to learn and get more confident. I certainly do not think that Mazzarri got the best out of him. Can you imagine what GT would have got from him. I feel he could b the best wide player we have had since the days of Cally and Digger.

PEDantic - 23/05/2017

I absolutely agree he should have had a run of games way before now. I would actually have like to see him given a try as a central speed merchant playing off Deeney, a la Vydra, once Zarate was injured. I have no idea if he would have the composure to finish chances off but a better bet than Niamh there I think. (He has a very long way to go to match Callaghan or Barnes however…)

I agree – just the type of player that centre halves would hate running at them.

He’s fast and he’s a unit – centre halves nightmare. In my opinion would be more effective playing down the middle rather than wide.
