Dennis and Sarr

Post by Milltown1882 » Wed Aug 10, 2022 5:20 pm

Leeds verbal agreement to sign Sarr and Forest are pushing to sign Dennis.

Could be excellent news for us for Friday.

It would make a massive difference on Friday

Watford losing the pair of them would not only be massive for Friday but for the season. They will be nowhere near as strong without them two.

Also United after Max Aaron’s from Norwich would be great for us if that happened he’s a class player, especially at this level.

Agree on Sarr & Dennis.

Personally think Aaron’s is very weak defensively and not good enough going forward. Very shocked if United want him & a sign of how far they’ve fallen imo. But he is an asset at this level. Just hope they don’t use the money to strengthen significantly in other areas.

I would say our early sales and replacement is very good for us compared to Norwich/Watford. Hopefully the later sales will destabilise them a bit.

Who is this Max Aaron’s? I guess he’s good at possession.

Wow! Are Dennis & Sarr two different people....someone has Dennis Sarr to score the first goal in the Championship prediction league in our game with Watford on Friday.😊

Forest and Leeds have suddenly both gone up in my estimations tenfold, if Watford lose those 2 they'll suddenly have a bang average squad even by Championship standards, and even if both don't leave by Friday, surely they wouldn't be risked ahead of a major transfer.

Only wish I'd held off on my prediction now, never mind better for us if they aren't available on Friday.

Shows that we might actually have pulled a masterstroke by getting most if not all of our major outgoings done early in the window.

I'd agree that Aaron's is very weak defensively, I don't see why he gets the headlines he does, but I'm not shocked Utd are after him. After all they have a history of dross.

Man Utd interest still being reported this morning. Even if he doesn't leave this week, hopefully there will be enough for him not to be risked on Friday.

Even if both were to play, surely they won’t be in the right frame of mind and wanting to risk getting injured if moves are on the horizon.

Logically though if deals are imminent then Watford would be absolutely crazy to risk playing them in case they picked up an injury.
Could cost them millions

This could be amazing news. Watford with Pedro, Sarr and Denis are in the top 3 no doubt. Without them you can put a 1 infront of the 3. Let's hope they aren't risked against us tomorrow. Would hope that the players have expressed their interest to leave and 'aren't in the right frame of mind.'

Wouldn’t be so sure. Said a few weeks ago that I found it odd that Watford were opening the season so heavily reliant on players they probably wouldn’t have by September. They may well continue to play them until the deal is done.

Losing strong players is always tricky, but if you’ve basically built your approach around their attributes, it’s got to be a major problem.

Serves them well for the 1/2 games they potentially have left whilst they are here but the rest of the season doesn't bode well if they go about it like that.

The players might play, but they won’t give a **** - that’s the difference.

Do you really think Sarr, Dennis and Pedro will compete to their maximum in any challenges when a potential double/triple their money offer to the Premier League is being worked through?

Sarr seemed to make an effort against WBA but Dennis was hardly noticeable and was substituted.

I think you might be. Would happily see them not involved if it means we get the points.

Our defence will be tested plenty of times, could do with smashing another title contender nice and early.

Yeah he will play but they don't reckon he's any good as a striker in a 2 up top.

Must say the news of Dennis leaving has made me feel quite confident of a result.

It would appear so yes, anything which weakens Watford has to be good news for us, not only for tomorrow, but also for the rest of the season.

Yes, makes you wonder what is known about him within football that isn’t obvious to the casual observer of highlights. I think I heard mention Forest were still sniffing earlier this week.

Not to derail the thread but with Ben Brereton Diaz I assume it's his contract situation - won't he be on a free next summer? Obviously there's a chance teams could try get him cheap this year but Rovers would probably want £20m+ for him and that's still huge money for a Champo player.
