Watford v AFC Bournemouth Preview

After 8 games last year we were second from bottom on 4 points. Admittedly it was a slightly harder schedule but we did play and lose to Watford (h), Everton (a) and West Brom (h). We also lost to Spurs, Arsenal and Man City. So the fixtures have been kinder but beating West Ham and Watford away this season are probably the best results to date
 
Cardiff, Huddersfield and Watford I think going down after that showing. Can’t think of three worse teams. Watford obviously got lucky with their start (mostly home games). Get that money on them going down now while their odds are still longish. They looked hopeless today really. Newcastle 2 up now at Utd, the gap to Watford will soon close. Wolves will pummel them.
 
Lucky result. Fluked the first goal, and then - thanks to a cr@p referee, we found ourselves 3 up at half time. Against a team down to 10 men, who had deserved to be in front at the halfway mark. 2nd half we got a lucky break early on to go 4 up. Then - thanks to poor play, poor tactics, and poor management & decision making - we couldn’t capitalise on this.

Mark my words, Watford are heading for European football, and us? We’re doomed.

Absolutely buzzing after that!

Some dodgy moments early on, especially the free header, but we looked so lethal on the counter and it was done at 2-0. The rest of the match it was lovely to just laugh at Watford fans trooping out and crying about a couple of decisions going against them. We could/should have had more, overplayed it a few times.

King was immense even without the goals, he is so strong with his back to goal. Lerma really looks the part and is exactly what we've missed, that moment in the 2nd half when he won the ball despite being basically on the floor was outrageous. Ake once again was a rock, if Maguire is worth 75m, what is he worth??

Rubbish away facilities at Vicarage Road. Think there was one person selling beers for the entire away support section! Once again great away support and it drowned out the monotonous drum.

On 2nd Sept I wrote this on another thread:-
"Watford have boiled the kettle early, but is there enough steam left for the rest of the season? IMO they will soon start to slide down the table."
Well the kettle has boiled and the gas company have turned off the supply! Hornets have lost their sting and have been zapped. :utc:
