Watkins had no service but huffed and puffed to the end. Benrahma however looked like he gave up when his fancy flicks didn't come off and had a shocker. Bigger clubs eyeing his availability will have noticed that.
It's one game though. Anyone scouting them will have watched them a dozen times.
Indeed it is only one game and, as you say, MOST clubs would probably have a fifty page dossier on them. But I have a nagging doubt that we don't do things like most clubs. I have no idea why I think like this but I imagine our scouting network consists of Moyes, or one of his coaching team, going to watch someone a couple of times, studying videos clips and then making a decision. And it wouldn't surprise me if the decision making bit involved a heads or tails scenario. Unfair ? I hope so, but somehow the doubts persist.
TRADITION--Just because we've always done it like this doesn't mean it's not incredibly SILLY

That would read funnier if it said: West Ham are the only club closing in on an £18m deal for Barcelona flop Martin Braithwaite...

I don't think that whatever it is we do with regards to scouting is worthy of having the suffix 'network'. :lol:

One scout and advertising for volunteers just about sums us up.
That said I'd pass on Benrahma now Brentford are looking for £25m. Watkins I'd take in a heartbeat though, especially as Antonio is bound to miss at least 10 games through injury.
Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

Ex is right - something will be happening in September

Can I be the first to state that something will also be happening in October. Like Ex I can't say what it is,but you can trust me that something will happen.
