    I think your right up there with your assumption. I’d go even further to say if he continues to improve it may between 20-30 million. I can guarantee he won’t go cheap, have no fear about that. However if we do go up ( a possibility) he may hang around another year, he’s on a very long contract.

    I think from an ECFC perspective we want him to have a fantastic season, for Brentford to get to the playoff final, Ollie to score a hat-trick, but lose 4-3. That'll maximise his value nicely.

    Always had a soft spot for Brentford and their ground (even back in the days when they used to be oppos) - what's not to like about a ground with a pub on each corner!!!



    Always struck me as probably the best step up at the time for Ollie - and, with the add-ons, hopefully a WIN-WIN for both of our clubs.

    Yep. Order a big consignment of cotton wool.

    Interesting article in the Mail today under What's Hot and What's Not. Under HOT-Ollie Watkins. "Scored the goal of the day across all 4 divisions when his 20 yard shot beat Jack Butland. Punctures the myth that you can't play good football in the Championship. Worth a look on the internet" Hopefully will boost his transfer fee when Brentford sell him on.

    They're moving aren't they? Building a new ground near Kew Bridge. I wonder if they'll have to sell players to help pay for it?

    Can see Watkins moving to a club like Bournemouth and getting an England call up one day.

    That's a shame

    Who/how/what is financing it?

    There was a lot of 'buzz' (sorry) a few years ago about Brentford doing 'Money Ball' on transfers etc. Is this still going on? Was it genuine or just media guff?

    It’s being financed by the owner a Brentford fan Mathew Benham. If I’ve got it right the old ground is going to the owners as payment or part payment on which they are going to build low level housing. Plus on the new stadium site and a bit of land across the road, yet to be cleared they are building 10 blocks of flats and a hotel. On the Money Ball buzz. It’s only part of whet the club do they will scout players for a very long time and due Mathew Benhams companies Smart Odds and Matchbook have extensive knowledge of huge numbers of talent and underrated players in many countries. So far I think we’ve bought in 13 millions worth of players and sold for just over 50million over the last 4/5 years. Hope this helps.
