Bit of a superfluous sentence there. Absolutely nothing about that article is precocious. It’s exaggerated noncesense lacking a semblance of truth

Is that what a Millwall fan says when they channel their inner LBQT+ to make a tricky decision?

Are they actually friends? Or are people guessing this because they are both Bermudian

As I said before he played for the club that Shaun Goater and Kyle Lightbourne ran on the island and I saw this in wikipedia. "Before moving to the UK, Wells sought the advice of compatriot Shaun Goater."

Yes they are, quite a few references online to Wells and Goater being in contact at least

Won't make a blind bit of difference. In my view the player is much more likely to prefer QPR, having been there already for so long, if they show any interest in signing him permanently.

Hope this deal isn't sh1t or bust for us - what other irons do we have in the fire?

His wife and kids are very happy in London. Move on 

Yeh, but this is the West Country and we are not far from Weston super Mare. Beats smoggy London. 😋

Never mind that, get him down to Portishead, they will think are back in Hamilton Bermuda. :)

Those stats do actually accurately portray the players that we see on the pitch. One's a clinical striker, one's a big man up front and another is a busy bee

I can’t see the percentage for the length of time spent running enthusiastically into cul-de-sacs 60 yards away from the ball with one arm in the air? 🤷‍♂️

I’m guessing Weimann is going to be in the high 80’s. 😬

So his goalscoring output is much better than expected judging by the quality of shots he's taking, and could well revert back to the 10 goal a season striker he was before August?

I wonder how much Wells's stats are because of the team around him and the tactics QPR employ? Stick Wells in our squad with our current tactics and would that negatively impact or have no impact on his stats? (Of course fingers crossed LJ changes our tactics when we get this saviour of a striker)

I think you need to create a big spreadsheet and full squads impact assessments

Depends on how you look at it:

Champ only stats above....

172 starts (38 subs).

65 goals (goal every 2.64 starts)

14986 mins (166.5’s worth of 90 mins)

goal every 2.56 90 minutes.

Extrapolate to a 46 game season, he’s a 17/18 goal a season man.

Absolute bollox - with all due respect - 19 goals in the last season and a half, I think, and the most intelligent footballer we have ... did you see how he dragged the defender away with his run to allow NE to score the winner vs Barnsley?

Exactly - he's clearly used to playing with players of higher footballing intelligence. Must be frustrating for him when our players don't make the same runs or spot his movement in the way his former colleagues at Villa did for example.

You know how it works on OTIB...... “our problem is we are too static under Johnson, there is no movement off the ball”......... “I don’t understand why Johnson picks Wiemann every week, all he does is run around”.
