Watford 2-0 Post Match Thread

Nice 3 points but the crowd seemed really quiet on tv.  How was it at the game?

 

Think the FX mike was next to a group of school children in M1. You could hear those annoying feckers for much of the second half.

 

We’re still 100 per cent against sides who finished outside the top seven last year. That’s some going.

Was JJ playing LB when he came on?

It was hard to say if we were playing 352, or 4231. I think we were playing 4231 (Ndidi + Hamza double pivot) but Ricardo was told not to stay back. Justin replaced Barnes and so was operating as Left Wing / Left Wingback.

I'd be surprised if Praet doesn't get a start or two this month. Tielemans has looked a bit knackered lately.

And Madders, rotate one out for each of Midfield the next couple of matches.

How does Ndidi never seem knackered - awesome week in week out.

Happy Birthday Raw Dykes!

 

I was going to post earlier - "C'mon lads, give Dykesy a birthday treat!" but didn't want to jinx it!!!

 

Up to the Maddison goal, a little tense.. But a birthday present is a birthday present... As they say!....Do they say that?! :unsure:

Didn't see the match but a bit worried about the number of people on here who thought we looked knackered..

I thought only Madders and Youri did.

 

I'd probably give Nacho more minutes so Vards could take a breather too.

Not taking the piss mate but I was surprised how poor Watford were. Obviously bottom of the table isn't great but I couldn't believe how little threat your boys showed. Virtually nothing in 90 minutes. 

We sometimes have fleeting moments in games  but we cannot keep the ball long to build any real momentum and our midfied has been poor generally.

Pushed further up the field on the left 

Looked like we went to a back 3 with Justin and Ricardo wingbacks

It was cold so cold. Not the most scintillating of games but a win is a win. Not read the thread yet but isn’t James Justin good and Fuchs was awesome for us tonight especially in the 1st half. 
 

Loved it.

We looked jaded tonight, no tempo. Tielemens and Perez particularly off it. Watford were game without threatening, need to regain our tempo for Villa which wont be easy. 

Good summary, my thoughts too.

Still 12pts ahead of 5th place Wolves but more importantly 14pts ahead of Man Utd and 15pts ahead of Spurs.

You sound like mainstream media that only focuses on the distance between Liverpool and Man City :ph34r:

If Vardy breaks his record I’m 100% convinced we’ll win the league. Not our best game tonight but results are what matters right now, Watford didn’t have a sniff really - solid at the back.

Now 12 points clear of 5th placed Wolves, I can see the fat lady taking a glass of water before hailing the UEFA Champions League music...

Win silky, win smooth, win emphatically, win ugly, just win. We did what we had to do. Move on - can’t really move much further up.

Was a bit flat. I know this a bit of a fashionable opinion at the moment but Tielemans looked lethargic. 

Good performance from the back four though. Even on a relatively quiet evening, Ricardo is easily one of the best players I've seen in the royal blue.

I'm honestly more worried about Wolves than Man Utd at the moment.

The lack of confidence comes through with the passing stats. You're a far better team than this, something a decent manager could turn around...the only problem is how many managers are you going to try out this season before you find one?

Youri has looked jaded in the last few games. A game off might help?

As you say, Ricardo is sheer class.

Ha yeah I was being a bit fickle, they've maintained a level of consistency now and deserve to be where they are.

Agreed on both counts. Special mention to Fuchs who filled in seamlessly - think he only got done once by an absolute speed merchant.

 

I honestly don't think I can think of a better right back in the world than Ricardo right now. He'd be good value at £120m.

Thanks, Kendo! lol

 

I didn't want to mention it, either, in case it was jinxed. Very relieved when Maddison scored.

 

Yes, I believe it was Wordsworth who said, "a birthday present is a birthday present."
