For 5-8 games of a new season are a bit of a lottery. Where fitness and who’s clicked best plays more of a factor than players ability. So this score could be anything. I just hope it falls in our favour

Watford fan here - I come in peace. As many of you have pointed out it appears like it's a good time to play us. From an outside perspective that's totally understandable. I thought I'd share our

One positive I do want to make is I think Dijksteel is turning into a quality player back there. My MOTM again today, looks comfortable as the RCB.

I'm a bit amazed that tav is getting criticism after that half. Everything good about us has gone through him. Yes he loses the ball and sometimes hits wayward passes but that's what happens when you

Well Warnock has done well away from home but I don’t see BORO as a competitive balanced squad with enough depth. I don’t see anything to suggest we have addressed our weakness in defense and we still lack the ability of speed and goals. I’ll be surprised I’d we can hold a two goal deficit.  I don’t see anything but defeat and I see a draw as successful. I think we will improve over a period of time and may see a system,  balance and belief around 6 - 10 games in but only if we are not basement

Which team and formation should Neil Warnock pick?

It'll be the 352.

--------------------Stoj/Betinelli---------------
-------------Dijksteel - Hall - Fry--------------
Spence ------------------------------ Johnson
------------------------Howson------------------
---------------------Tav - Saville----------------
---------------------Britt - Fletch---------------

What will the scoreline be and who scores if any? 

Think we will lose 2-1. Britt or Fletch to score.

Will we have signed any new players before the game and will they be involved in the squad for this particular game?

Yes. Betinelli & Sanogo. Morsy maybe but I think he might not sign till the weekend.

Are you confident, that Warnock will get the maximum out of his players, and we can compete in this league? We were nearly relegated last season, but NW saved us, with an incredible away statistic for the 8 games he was manager in.

Yes I am. Warnock is a monster in this league so whether our squad is deep enough or not I think he will get the players he does have available performing at max for him. Whether that gets us anywhere is another question though.

People say its a good time to play them I actually think the opposite. 

I actually agree with this, even though most don't. I think it take a while for the wheels to fall off and the despair of being in the championship to really take effect. Also closer to, and after, deadline day will also impact morale as bigger name players can leave (or be 'stuck').

I think this is the best time to play Watford away this season. No crowd. New manager and team not settled after relegation. They also appear to have had a shorter pre season than us. 

I've got a feeling we could catch them cold.

As MJ above says this could be a really good time to play them. Clearly all is not well in the Hornets nest.

Nothing quite as good as it seems and the local paper is reporting it? What is this!? I thought local papers weren't allowed to report a negative image of the club? This is ridiculous, how dare they. 😡😡😡

Watford change managers often enough that the paper can say what they want and the manager won't have chance to get annoyed about it.

I expect he'll be one of the favourites for the sack unless Watford start really well.

Interesting culture that the owners have allowed to develop there.  If the players know that the owners are trigger happy when it comes to managers then you're going to have issues like this over and over again.

Since the 09/10 season we've played at Vicarage Road 7 times (6 times in the Championship, once in the Prem). We have won once, drawn 2 and lost 4 times.

The last time we played them at Vicarage road in the Championship, was when they beat us 2-0 in the 14/15 season. For some reason, I remember that game for the main fact that it was Dwight Tiendalli's debut. 

Unrelated story but I went to visit my mate who lived in Shepard's Bush, for the first time after he moved to London, after the game. He said his house was infront of a big "warehouse" called the Loft, it turned out that the big "warehouse" was Loftus Road (he isn't into his football).

----------------------------Bettinelli/Stojanovic

----------Djiktsteel ----------- Hall ------------------ Fry

Spence -------------------- Saville/Morsy ----------------- Coulson

------------McNair ------------------------------Tavernier

-------------------------Fletcher Assombalonga

What will the scoreline be and who scores if any? 

3-1 to Watford - Deeney hat-trick.  Wing consolation from sub in 92nd minute.

Will we have signed any new players before the game and will they be involved in the squad for this particular game?

Hopefully. See above.

I'm more confident with NW than I was with Woodgate, although I don't expect us to get to the play-offs, I do hope we will be safely distant from the bottom 3 for most of the season.

    • One big plus at least Scotland players don't have far to travel home, and up and down the pubs and bars in Scotland they'll be able to talk about the mighty nil nil with England for years to come.
    • Yes me too I was hoping for a last gasp equaliser, I'm hoping that the team are brilliant next game and prove me wrong, but I just feel the other teams have players who can produce that bit of individual brilliance needed, we look stifled and devoid of ideas to create chances. I had high hopes before the tournament started but the manager gives me no confidence, the most inform fullback we have in the squad is Chillwell good defender and fast going forward, the striker  with the best heading ability is Calvert Lewin outstanding season for Everton, neither have had a look in, narrow minded manager who has Plan A and nothing more this squad deserves much better.  
    • Has he whinged about Villa, Liverpool and West Ham like? I'm pretty sure he's spoken about West Ham at least and had nothing but positive things to say about his time there. In comparison with Karanka, he had plenty of good to say about Big Sam too, if I remember rightly. And in his situation, would you feel aggrieved or would you sit there after over a decade's worth of combined service to a club and think "At least I got that chance"? It's a two way street and it always has been with Downing. When he's been here, he's always worked hard and at least earned the chance to justify us keeping him around. He's never downed tools like Braithwaite did, for example. The season Braithwaite signed, Downing was pushed into the under-23s by Monk, they tried to force him out the club and sell to Birmingham and he worked his way back into the team. That same player got demonised as if he was a catalyst for Karanka's departure, got booed by his own fans and still came back trying to fight for the cause. It doesn't matter if I'd been in my job for 1 year or 20, if I made agreements with someone to extend a contract and they then backed out when it suited them and left me in the lurch, I'd be pretty bloody annoyed about it. If he wants to talk about that, he has the right and players who are hung out to dry by clubs don't have any reason to shirk talking about it. Especially with the situation here, where he didn't just have a promise made to him, he made a decision to waive a contractual agreement previously made in part so he would have his future worked out. We got what we wanted in the short term and long term and Downing was forced to leave. How can anyone possibly look at that level of unprofessional behaviour by the club and still think Downing's the problem is completely beyond me. It just seems to be a long term hatchet job continued on from a time when everyone blamed Downing for Karanka nearly leaving the first time and actually leaving eventually. Mixed in with the fact people thought Downing wasn't a good player which for some reason created value judgements of him as a person. People already don't like him and see him in one way so aren't open to the idea that he's in the right. The comment above, "don't get me started" on him, I have to wonder where that comes from when everything Downing says matches up to the absolute shittery we see at the top level of our club every year and especially since Karanka and Orta left.
    • dont get me started on Downing.
    • @wilsoncgp agree with everything you said. Just seems to me that he loves to whinge about how each club dealt with him “unprofessionally” upon leaving them. I have no doubt Boro did probably mess him about in Pulis final yesr but he needs to weigh that off woth how much good our club has done for him over the years, especially the owner who he also slagged off in that Schwarzer interview In every interview I read of his he seems to give of the vibe of there being a sense of self-entitlement with him. Just my opinion and others might see him differently
