Bird Table

A good point tonight on Watford's potato patch

Recommended Posts

First of all, the Football League should ban teams from sharing their

grounds with egg-chasers. The state of that pitch was a disgrace. The

combination of ploughed field and clueless ref reminded me of Tranmere

away last season *shudder*Onto the game, if you''d offered me the

point at half-time I''d have happily taken it. Our defence seemed to

panic in the face of pretty basic tactics from Watford - hoof the ball

up-field as quickly as possible. I thought Ward was poor for the second

game in a row. Jackson again looked very lively and it was good to see

McNamee get a good run out again. Moving on to Friday, we need

to check our nerves in at the turnstiles. Create an atmosphere like we

did against Bristol and Scunny. Scunthorpe were beaten before they''d

kicked a ball, they s**t their pants when they heard that noise before

kick-off.There''s still all to play for, let''s get behind the boys and do this. OTBC

Are you saying we did this or Watford?

In first half all I saw from us was repeatedly giving the ball away by hacking it upfield looking for Vokes and Holt.

Watfords ''basic'' tactics cuts us open easily on more than one ocassion with quick counter attacks and some sharp interpassing on the deck, they passed their way through us for both goals.    

Agree with your other points though.

IF Holt is out Friday I do fear the worst and we could conceivably struggle now to even keep in the top six such is the influence of Holt.
