My worry with Watmore is he broke out primarily because of his raw pace and speed when dribbling but with those horrific knee injuries what is left in his legs?

Saying that beggars can't be choosers and have no issue with us giving him a 1 year deal if Warnock thinks he can contribute.

I don't imagine his wages will be particularly high either. I can see the logic in this.

Not champ standard but stood out in the prem 😂😂😂

its hard to stand out in a team of 11 individuals likes they've had for a good few years now, but he did okay when bfs was gaffa. if warnock and the coaching staff are happy with him. i'm happy.

To be fair hes had two big injuries since then. He looked a prospect in the prem but that was a while ago.

It’d be hard for anyone to impress in the sunderland team for last 3 years but he’s obviously got something about him

He looked Jamie Vardyish when he burst on the scene. Ig hes lost that pace he might struggle but in Warnock we trust.

I was at the stadium of light when we beat Sunderland in the Premier league and I was really impressed with Watmore that day. 

Obviously the injuries have hampered him, I wonder if maybe he's never fully recovered from them. 

Still, there's no harm in having a look at him.

Yeah I thought he had a bit of promise a few years back.  Terrible luck with the injuries, like a few of our lot a while back - McMahon and Bates in particular.

    • I suspect a lot of people, like me, are frustrated by the fact it's a fairly weak league this season, and we aren't far away from getting into the play-offs. I honestly believe if we added a creative ACM and a one-in-two-to-three striker, we'd finish top six. But as it is, we don't have the strength in depth to change things, and the likes of Wing are luxury players we can't afford to start with. Yesterday was a punch in the tits, but I suspect Warnock will have the players fully fired up midweek, and there were probably some extenuating circumstances yesterday. And if Watmore is even 70 per cent fit, he starts, simply because nobody else can give us that creative spark.
    • It’s disappointing knowing we probably aren’t going to ‘have a go’ in January. Obviously Covid circumstances make it a slightly easier pill to swallow but feel like there is a real opportunity to be taken this season. Financially, there’s some big hitters ahead of us but we’ve more than matched them in the games we’ve played against them.  We’ve got a good core and just need to add a bit of quality that will allow us to eliminate some of of our inconsistency.  No doubt having Fletcher back will help but that quality out wide I still think we miss and I still think we’re without genuine technical ability in midfield. Hourihane would give us exactly that so fingers crossed we can push through a loan deal.  Yesterday’s result was a really hard one to take and watch so I’m hoping Gibson will have seen what we all saw and is willing to put his hands in his pocket and give us a real chance of breaking into the top six and establishing ourselves. 
    • How did I forget Downing.  Woody is the proverbial bad penny isn’t he.
