    Yep, amazing resilience to come through last season. He was under enormous pressure.
  2. Don't be such a Luddite, there's obviously more ways of knowing a player is joining than than 'OS'.
  3. Is that on a certain facebook group by any chance?
  4. He’s also been used as a lone forward there apparently but far better as part of a pair which he was doing at Dijon.
  5. Yes this is him. Had he kicked on at St Etienne and done well, I doubt we'd be getting him. Seems Bournemouth and Birmingham (who under Redknapp were going for big targets) both wanted him so he's obviously highly thought of. I think people will naturally raise their eyebrows at this season's scoring record but even Eden Hazard had a severe goal drought a couple of seasons ago. It happens sometimes and any player can have a bad move. Up to us to bring the best out of him, should also help improve Famara too.
  6. Pretty reassuring then - his bio says "Freelance football writer. Specialise in France & Scotland. Found on @goal_intl, read in @blzzrd, @WSC_magazine" so he knows his stuff and has a grasp on the level of quality in this league too you'd think
  7. But on the other hand if he's dreadful we've only got him for a few months.. this way is low risk.
  8. 9m euros which I believe works out to around £8m but have seen £7m quoted elsewhere- more than our record signing anyway. He hasn't been a St Etienne player that long really and any player can have a poor move. Hopefully this fresh start will be just what he needs..
  9. His stats from last season are better than Diedhiou's in a poorer team.. It seems his current move hasn't worked out for him, but it happens. He's clearly got something about him.
  10. Anybody else think we’ll win tonight?

    Exactly. I remember enjoying the Bradford game when we were promoted, but it was nothing like the United game for me personally. It's moments like that which make you follow football.
  11. I remember the buzz about Diedhiou's signing and this signing is nowhere near that level of excitement. I know it's only stats but here's Famara's from last season and here's Diony's Both have played a very similar amount of football but Diony's stats are better in a worse side. Could be a very exciting one.. The other thing to consider is that despite both being the exactly same age and showing good form last season, Diony's transfer fee was between £7m-£9m depending on where you read and Famara's £5.3m. That's even when you consider the English club premium we probably paid..
  12. Hahaha I know, I love that about transfer windows now. I remember when Eliasson signed and people on here used his agent's instagram story to pinpoint exactly where in Bristol they were prior to signing. Must be a nightmare for clubs keeping anything secret. Well we must be because that's the only UK destination from Lyon airport this morning.
  13. Yep, there have been 3 flights to London this morning which have all landed now so he should be on his way to Bristol!
  14. Very much a oui! All the good things about Kodjia but younger and cleverer. Premier League quality attributes based on that. Before anyone says ‘it’s only a computer game’ I’m aware of that - but it’s a very good tool for getting a snapshot of a player.
  15. According to those attributes he’s the cleverer and more disciplined player which is reassuring. Similarly quick and adept at dribbling. Could be exciting to watch.
