    We sold him not long after that as well, and we got relegated at the end of the season. So its your fault then. ;)

    Wish you were here Mousa. Feels weird calling him a former player still.

    Hope Justin makes a swift recovery. Legendary winding up of Roy Keane in the ‘91 FA Cup Final always endeared him to me.

    That's awful, way too young. Condolences to his loved ones.

    I agree but what do I know? I think Winks will join the ranks Bentaleb and that young Algerian who inspired many here but me not nearly enough :)

    I never thought we should sell him.

    Was raw, and a bit reckless, but one of the few players we had at the time who looked to get the ball forward and was always positive in his play.

    Whenever I see Watford he stands out as one of the best players to me. I like him.

    Wasn’t Capoue part of the Kaboul, Ade dressing room disrupters?

    I believe that’s why Poch got rid, regardless of how good or bad he was.

    I think he’s very ordinary, wouldn’t add anything to our current squad.

    We used Capoue as a DM, I remember seeing him further forward at Lesley’s testimonial. It wasn’t a competitive game of course but he looked sensational!

    You judge a player by his performance in a testimonial?

    Never really knuckled down when he was here and frankly looked a bit of a carthorse at times. A pre-2018 Sissoko if you like. His long-range passing and shooting were mostly embarrassing, also I seem to recall a tendency to flunk last ditch defending then blame others.

    But like Sissoko he seems to have turned it round since joining Watford, so credit to him for that.

    No, hence why I said 'it wasn't a competitive game of course' ;)

    He's looked good when they are winning, gives in when they go 2 down.
