Despite Benrhama failing his  medical, West Ham still signed him on loan for 5m and are obliged to make the deal  permanent for 20m, plus 5m possible in add-ons. 30m in total

Villa signed Ollie Watkins for 28m, rising to 33m with possible add-ons.

Wonder who's got the better deal?

Impossible to say before he's played a single minute for West Ham.

I think both are very good players.

But, an out-and-out 15-20 per season goalscorer in the Premier is worth their weight in gold and Watkins certainly seems that he could be that so far albeit on the evidence of the few games we've had.

Generations of footballers may come and go but their reassuringly ropey taste in music (Luther, Boyz II Men, Phil Collins et. al) shall always remain.

Nearly 2 weeks without a goal, i'm not impressed.

Luther does not belong in that list, a man of awesome talent.

Aren't Boyz II Men Motown's best selling act ever?

Hell be great. In fact both of them will be. Loved to have had them both.

You're right. Love that old footage of Bowie trying out his plastic soul Young Americans era material with Vandross as a backing singer. Think he might have got a writing credit on that album too actually.

Thought Ollie battled well last night.

Was still getting in good positions despite it being a fairly quiet night overall.

I agree CT.  He has a knack if pulling centre backs out of position and creating space for Jack and Barkley to move into.  Very smart forward.

This was discussed in the match thread, but I think Ollie, like Wesley before him, is ending up being too isolated. The team needs to be better at providing support. Hes got plenty of ability, but he needs the team to produce more.
