Copy them as in follow the model, not literally player for player. We probably can’t do it better now because they have more money than us, I always wanted us to take a similar analysis model to try and find gems from the bigger premier league teams u23 teams/unused players, Chalobah, mooy, Michael Keane. At the time we could have afforded them where as Brentford could not. Now we are behind financially we would be looking abroad and league 1.

Following the model would mean looking to sign the same players or don't you get that?  It's an analytics based scouting system, they don't just choose whoever they feel like who might end up being good in the future.  Mooy cost Huddersfield £8m plus add ons so forget him because he isn't that type of player.  What you are talking about there with some of those players you mentioned isn't really what Brentford do, so as I said, you don't know what you mean or what you want really.   What you actually want is for us to find bargains and be really good, which is pretty much what everyone wants, I'm really talking about the details though.

We looked at League 1 last season and it didn't quite work out for us.  In fact, unless I'm being thick, our signings last season were three League 1 players, two players from abroad and a couple of Premier League teams u23/unused players.  That's exactly what you say you want apparently.

Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then 😂).

i think im the only excited by Sanogo, his youth record is quality, showed some promise for arsenal to give a good go and i feel he could defiantly do a job in the championship. Or maybe im just excited were actually signing someone haha

He's 27.

His youth record was a decade ago.

he was playing with the french under 21's as recently as 2014, but i take your point, i just saying the guy showed quality for a period when younger and i guess im hopeful he might find some of that talent.

If he can perform that kind of link up every week either from the start or off the bench he'll do great. If you set aside the 'x factor' a player like he has of perceived potential lost/not shown to this point the lads a 6 foot 4 striker with decent Ligue 1 experience who can hold the ball up. 

I am very interested if this stops our interest in Zohore and what type of striker we target as the 4th, I'd go for someone with pace and energy myself.

    • I commenting on what i thought NW saw when joining and he may have picked his tactic based on what we had then. Not since we had bolasie and kabano. though i agree with you. it is likely that he is just sticking to his old tactics from the 90's of percentage ***. what i dont like is when a ball playing defender with good distribution (paddy). passes back to bettinelli who like you said is terrible at kicking accurately. he just wellies it up field. wtf doent paddy play it long himself. he must be under instruction to do it.  earlier in the season when we had spells in games were we actually played it on the floor we looked so much better. it usually involved the young lads doing it. maybe they dont listen to the gaffer enough lol
    • Our players aren't told to pass the ball, that's the major issue. They're told to get the ball forward as quick as possible and try to win first and second balls. Our pass percentage will always be in the lower quarter of the league, regardless of who we buy.  I do definitely agree with improving the midfield - though I'd much prefer it was a midfield two with tav just ahead of them. 
    • Out of the teams above us, we only have a better passing % accuracy than Barnsley. We need players who can actually pass a ball, and i'd hope we are looking at improving our midfield 3, as I feel we lack real quality in these positions. Hopefully Mcnair will get more time in these positions next season, as he isn't a CB i'm overly confident in. 
    • Whilst accepting "Barbie Girl" is a parody, I have to agree that AR is right about admitting to singing it...  though I would have had more respect for SD if he had chosen "My Ding-a-ling" 🙂 
    • I disagree that we don't have players good enough to play the ball in a more controlled and purposeful way, particularly since the January transfer window. I wouldn't say any of our defenders are particularly bad on the ball at all, and all of our forwards/wingers thrive with the ball at their feet, not in the air. Not to mention we probably have the worst keeper in the league at long balls. The way we play is completely counter to our individual players strengths and it's purely because it's the only way our manager  knows how to play.
