      We need to sign one more CB for cover. Matip is too injury prone to be relied on. Gomez also has some knacks now and then.

      Jürgen name checked Koumetio yesterday before the game when questioned about Matip and Joe's injuries saying Billy also had a small problem so I think he will be fast tracked in to the first team.

      19 million plus 6 million in add ons offered for Brewster from Palace, with buy back option. For me thats a good deal

      I think it's a good deal but I suspect Edwards wants more. He sold Solanke for 19 M and it seems Brewster is much more valuable.

      The buyback for £12m says it all with £25m upfront. Shrewd.

      I’d bite their hand off for that, if anything it’s just a glorified loan deal except we get a nice chunk of money in our hands and if he ends up half decent, we buy him back, if not, oh well...

      Brewster's Millions.

      They should offer us £30M but set the buyout clause at £300M to keep it in line with the film plot

      How certain are we about any of these numbers?

      When I guessed at a fully rotated lineup for the Cup match this week, I came up with Origi, Minamino and Jota as the starting front three. I could be wrong of course, but if that's the 2nd choice, then Brewster won't be getting a full game with us (the exception would be if Origi instead is the one who leaves). He does need to be playing somewhere.

      I don't think buy-backs are as simple as people paint them. You don't see them executed very often at all.

      Harvey Elliott starts to come under the same consideration by the way, even though he's a bit younger than Rhian.

      Anyway, the numbers all question marks for me at this point.

      Parish tearing Sky a new one over this, fair play to him, Sky back tracked to a degree but wont remove the story.

      Great to see them being tackled by a chairman. Years of tge "sky sports understands" bullshit. Make up a story znd run with it

      Such a nice way to put it. In truth every party is haggling to get the best deal for themselves. Buyer, seller, player and agent.

      I won't be surprised if someone comes up and says the player is willing to sacrifice development and winning things for wages and bonuses. I'll have to respectfully disagree on that. Of course you've got to go out there and earn as much as you can while securing a starting role consistently.

      Sarr link back again, despite the signing of Jota were still being linked to a 36 million desl. Most likely the agent acting the boll** to get other interested parties to move

      I suppose if 2 or 3 of Shaqiri, Brewster and Origi leave then it could make sense. Personally would like to keep Brewster but wouldn’t be surprised if he does leave.

      If Brewster Origi and Shaq leave and Sarr comes in thats a foward lie option of

      Mane
      Salah
      Firmino
      Minamino
      Jota
      Sarr

      Oh and Dembele in on loan

      Sarr makes no sense now that we have signed Jota. At the moment we have 5 quality forwards, and at a push Ox can help out as well, that is more than enough. This is of course assuming that we sell Shaq and Origi otherwise we have 7 forwards already.

      I would say that it makes a lot of sense if the players you mention do leave. I mean you, among others, have complained about depth up top for a while, surely Jota alone doesn’t put an end to that, especially if we have 2/3 forwards going the other way.

      It would simply mean we have more reliable and better quality backups. I don’t think Jota or Sarr (if he comes) would be walking in to the club expecting that they will start too many games. But I’m willing to bet that Sarr would rather be a back up to the premier league champions to starting every game for Watford in the Championship.

      Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying this is a need but would make perfect sense to me and would really give us the depth and quality to compete on all fronts and give competition to our front three.

      Perhaps Jürgen has convinced the owners that if we get in the players he wants to give us effective cover in every position we can potentially win both PL and CL this season which will generate huge revenues.

      We also won't have to spend big again unless we sell a star player for at least 2 or 3 seasons. 

      If we sell Brewster, Origi, Shaqiri and Wilson then signing Sarr definitely makes sense as Ox isn't great as wide forward cover and his fitness can't be relied on.

      I actually think Jota was the missing piece as he can play either flank and we now have Minamino who can play in Bobby's position. Would it be nice with even more players sure, but its not the burning necessity any more.

      Before I see any other forward come in I want to see a decent CB first, Fabinho did well and can do a job but I want him in front of that defence, not in it.

      Sarr or Dembele would put us in a great great position to win PL and CL. If we have the budget and they fit in, why not?

      Our front 3 needs competition, not because they are not god but they should be able to rest when needed.

      I don't fancy Sarr, his stats are not that good and he needs to prove his worth but Klopp and the scouts know better. As for Dembele, having him on loan would be good for all parties

      Dembele is top quality no doubt but his injury record already at his age is extremely concerning for me so I'd pass on that move.

      I was already of the opinion that because we have so many midfielders that 4th choice CB was going to be Fabinho's role to get him more playtime. He having that fantastic display against Chelsea i think only solidifies that belief.
