Bowers' Blog - 19/08 - Thoughts On Kaboul's Move To Watford

For those of you who have followed the article flow on Roker Report this week, you’ll know I wrote a piece saying that selling Lamine Kone and/or Younes Kaboul would be football suicide. Well, we’ve done half of that with Kaboul’s transfer to Watford confirmed this evening. Firstly, I have no issue with Kaboul himself wanting to be near his family.

Good news! When Arsenal signed Danny Welbeck, I predicted in these pages that he’d find his form and score 20 goals a season for Arsenal, after a long and frustrating apprenticeship and career start at Manchester United. It...hasn’t worked out that way, of course, and while I still think he’s a good player, I do feel a bit silly having predicted that.
