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

Absolutely turd, I'm sure we'll be a comfortable midtable team with Warnock but we look way short of being a playoff team. 

I'm finding it hard to think of a Boro game that I've really enjoyed for a few years. Depressing.

On one hand we’ve played miles better than under Woodgate tonight with Warnock. So for that I’m happier at the end of the game. But in attack, I’m just seeing shades of the Pulis long ball as our main method. 

Well at the same time I dont think we are direct enough at times....

Just baffles me how we can be trying to sign 2 more strikers and 0 creative players, it doesn't matter who we play up front when you can barely create a chance...

Heh. Been saying this for donkey's years...probably going back to when Mowbray was in charge and we were playing with winger-strikers.

We could sign any world-class striker you care to name, but it won't help if we don't have a midfield that can create chances for them.

Did you actually think we would be near play off? In that case I can understand why people complain so much. I have us at 16 as best.....

Its day one. Against an ex PL. 1st game still 3 weeks of transfer left. We held our own minus one error. UTB

An ex PL team with a huge number of players missing, a new manager, and all kinds of stuff apparently going on behind the scenes.  They haven't played well and we haven't been able to do much about it, that's what is disappointing.  They had no fluency, they looked like a patched up team and the Hall chance aside, we didn't really do much.  I also don't think we showed much ambition in trying to get back into the game either, which is a shame.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
