    The good looking bird who you thought may have winked at you as you walked past on holiday has destroyed your hope and is now getting piped on the balcony opposite by some weasel faced fuck with a big dick. Time to move on.

    Sorry about that Dan, I'll invite you to join in next time, Ok?

    I know I started the whole Watkins to Forest thing early last year, so maybe Forest were never even looking at him, but missing out on him will come back to haunt us.

    Watkins coming in might pave the way for Jota to leave. Forest stepping out of the way for a reason..? Murphy doesn't feel like the best reinvestment of the Britt money, would suggest there is a significant amount available to strengthen our attack in other ways.

    If Jota leaves Brentford it'll be to a Premier League club or to a Championship club in receipt of parachute payments.

    We can't offer huge wages and from a career standpoint Forest would be a step down from Brentford at this moment in time. No incentive at all for him to come here.

    Not enough for entice him to take a downward step in his career I'd imagine. He can easily earn more elsewhere, and play at a higher level or for a team with more realistic promotion prospects. He has much bigger fish to fry than Nottingham Forest.

    Sad reflection of where we currently are as a club and what we can offer in terms of wages, profile & dreams of the Prem.

    And why we sadly may have to "make do" with certain signings until that changes.

    It looks like it's £28m plus up £5m extras, but you can bet Brentford have had a decent chunk of that up front.

    It just shows how crazy Premier League money is. Watkins is a good player no doubt, but that deal is ridiculous.

    Always fun reading the first few pages when these type of threads get bumped.

    We didn't need Watkins anyway, we got Murphy & Cummings.

    Exeter have a 15% sell on - be the highest transfer fee they’ve ever received

    Nor did we need James Justin who's had stick in this thread earlier - the player who's about to start the season at a club playing in Europe. We lauded the signing of Carl Jenkinson instead.

    It's almost as if our fans aren't very good at identifying suitable players for the club.

    Fair play to Brentford, they've got a really good price for him, and they'll use that money no doubt to buy a load of other "expensive lower league shit" which they turn into solid players.

    Villa have form for paying fucking crazy transfer fees.

    3 mill for Lansbury springs to mind.

    Pleased for Exeter. So approx 4.2m for them.

    A decent top 4. https://www.transfermarkt.com/exeter...ge/verein/6699

    Like when they lost Ampadu at 16 they lost striker Jay Stansfield a year ago when he was 16 and already made his debut for Fulham and isn't on that list yet.

    Good for them. It’s about time the stupid amounts of cash from the top flight actually trickled-down to where it’s really needed.

    Watkins has improved every season in the Championship, he's young and he's English.
    If Dominic Solanke went for £20m, then Watkins going for 28 and change isn't that mental.

    If he’d have come here in 2017, he’d currently be in the same position as Zach Clough.

    Could be why out signings are always in their twilight years, young players know we’ll kill their career!

    Why did Forest ruin Zach Clough’s career, he ruined it himself by being shit & lazy
