Yeah, this one seems like its happening doesn't it.

Was really expecting a more obscure/continental signing with Brands (as in we'd be signing the likes of Richarlison before he came to Watford) yet it weirdly seems like another manager pick given Silva's recent history with that PL experience price tag to boot. Although Brands' speciality is the South American market isn't it? So I have to assume he knows plenty about the player too.

Perhaps it's the reality of us not being able to attract the likes of Lozano, etc? The age is right though. I must admit he didn't super catch my attention last year, perhaps I missed that early Watford golden period of the season.

Just read that, because he came over just as the Brazilian season finished straight into a PL season there was always likely to be the case that he'd fade away especially being so young

Surely Zaha would be a better value buy for a bit more ? Proper threat.

Iím willing to back silva on this one.

Itís certainly a lot better than spending this money on a 28 year old.

Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Not sure how I feel about this.

Good player, but have the feeling like we're effectively going to be trading Lookman and £30m for him...

Totally uninspiring signing. It's like we've just bought the new Panini football album and taken the same approach as the last regime. I didn't see anything last season that would in any way justify this type of fee.

This makes sense

Exactly. We were prepared to pay almost 20 million for Silva alone.

Fucking furious if that fee is true. We'll be a laughing stock AGAIN

Plays good for 1/3 of a season and £50 million?!

People saying he played good under Silva, if he's worth £50 million he would have been good for the rest of the season regardless of the manager.

They get shaqiri for £13 million and we pay £50 mill for a player who is worth £25 mill at best?!

Please tell me I'm in a nightmare, fucking ridiculous
Ahh.....Boucheenie i presume

Looking at the stats before and after Silva left Watford it's like two completely different players

Plenty of overseas players have looked fantastic for three months then disappeared.
Ask yourself. "What would Lewis Hamilton say?"

This is fucking terrible, buying average players and getting whacked to pay stupid fees. It's moronic.

Not sure he is just an average player. Seems to really have the potential to be good. If this were 25m-30m I would be all for it.

But agree re: stupid fees. Can't go paying 50m for a player that cost only 11m when they get only five goals and four assists over the course of an entire season. Madness. Especially when Lookman just got nearly the same end product in Germany over the course of like 1/4th of the total minutes.

Yep. You could see that happening, in which case I hope it's an undisclosed fee.
