    Default Ollie Watkins

    Seen some twitter rumblings about him and on a different forum i frequent, a Brentford fan says we've "won the race to sign him", no idea how true it is, but hes from Exeter in League 2, hes 21, a striker (but seems he can play on the wings and maybe attacking midfield), 5'11 and bags of pace, played 1.5 seasons at league 2 level, scoring 26 goals in 78 games (and 17 assists)

    price for him seems to be 4 million according to twitter, which seems pretty steep for a L2 lad :/

    More chance of Ollie Hardy.

I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    What was that about a possible signing?

    The lad is class, no doubt about that he looks like he plays league 2 football in his sleep whenever I've seen him play. Also, when I've seen him it's been at centre forward, he could be the lower league option as the Britt replacement. I've even seem some folk draw comparisons between him and Collymore.

    The only source I've seen are those fake transfer Twitter account things. So I'm not sure we're even in the race to sign him honestly.

    I bet that took some scraping off..

    Your palms are holding her neck and thumbs are at her ears regulating the speed of her head as she swallows and then sucks up your machinery. She is topping up your engine oil for the cross-country coming up. Your RPM is hitting a new high. To wait any longer would be to lose prime time... She picks up a Bugatti's momentum. You want her more at a Volkswagen's steady trot. Squeeze the maximum mileage out of your gallon of gas. But she's eating up the road with all cylinders blazing.

    Target practice.

    But to be honest, you'd splatter Holly Valance like a Plasterers' Radio.

    Because it's sea level to summit the Watkin is the most demnanding stamina wise, although Crib Goch is my favourite and the most exciting. 'Not for the faint hearted' as the guide book says.

    £3-4m? Fuck that. We paid £3m for Zach Clough, who had done the business at a higher level. Paying big money for this lad (or that right back from Luton) would also set a dangerous precedent, as it would show everyone that we can be taken for a ride when it comes to transfer fees. At the prices rumoured, we should stay well clear TBH.

    Thiiiis was my suggestion/rumour from like towards the end of last year sort of time. City were at the bottom half of the table and I suggested that he'd be a good addition to our squad as we'd probably be able to pick him up for less than £1m. I banged on about it for a few weeks but nobody was agreeing. Was talking about it during their play-off run to Wembley as well but it was shot down.

    My my, how the turned tables have... Never mind.

    Not sure about his goal game record, but he was the one in Steps, so it's a yes from me.

    Was he one of the members of Steps that wasn't Lisa Scott-Lee? Will have to take your word for it.

    A thread that contains Holly Valance, Holly Willoughby and Lisa Scott-Lee.

    I'm off to have a private think about it all.
