    Nathaniel Chalobah signed a five-year deal at Vicarage Road in July 2017.

    If someone make gifs of the two times Chalobah humiliated Arter following the *****'s "cheeky" cheating please that'd be great.

    I tried to find it, but Arter was made to look like moron.

    I love Chalobah, a lot. But I do find it funny how much media attention he gets compared to Doucoure, who has arguably been better so far this season.

    Well he is English (although born abroad which some will say means he isn't*) and from Chelsea...

    *If the Mo Farah arguments is anything to do by .

    John Barnes, Spike Milligan, Prince Philip were all born abroad. Mind you none of them supportWatford, but just thought I would mention it.

    Luther Blissett and Nigel Callaghan were also born abroad.

    Also strange to note that all players to have represented England while at Watford were born in Jamaica and all players to have represented Jamaica while at Watford were born in England.

    Perfect, let's keep it that way. The fewer people outside of Watford talking about Doucoure, the better!

    Yes but that's only the media, you can bet that the other week that Doucoure caught the attention of J*rgen Klopp. He won't say anything but I'd be surprised if some of the top clubs aren't quietly monitoring him.

    I know... I'm a plastic glory England fan

    Joining Watford is always a great career move, except for one player a year - that striker whose name I forget, Belkelem, Berghuis, Dje Dje

    Well done for your call up Nate, I reckon after a couple of good training sessions you will get straight in the team.

    Basically half the players whose surname starts with a D have been poor, Dixon, Daly, Davenport, Devaney, Digweed, Dyer (Lloyd), Drinkwater (for us)

    Who will he be up against - Dier/Henderson/Livermore?

    Blimey you are probably right - bench at least.

    No minutes for Devaney, about 15 for Davenport didn't give us much opportunity to judge them

  20. Not the heady days of Scott Loach's two call ups to the full England squad?

    Thought he was bargain of the year but now it is confirmed as just a loan I'm not so happy with the loan fee. Have to recall Hogg back from his loan for next year then I guess.

    Gomes' Spurs contract must be coming towards the end, perhaps we could get him in permanent for a sensible price at the end of the season, probably need Spurs to continue subsidising his wages for it to work though.

    Yes his contract with Spurs "runs out" on 22 May 2014. You are Dr Who and I claim my £5.

    Wrighty - who for some completely impossible to imagine reason really loves basically all black English players - said that probably the biggest driver of our good performances has been the midfield of Doucoure and Chalobah, but was at pains to repeatedly emphasise "but mostly Chalobah" (even after a game in which Doucoure scored a long-range strike)...

    He's made a great start, but they've been equally as important, or with Doucoure having a slight edge. But Nath has more time on his side.

    Just averaging out for the excellence of Doyley.

    Only two years more time. It's crazy to think that Doucoure is only 24!

    Ha, I hadn't double-checked but I'd assumed he was 25 or 26.

    Hopefully only suffered a minor injury ..

    Some guy was shouting that he is out for four months at half time today.

    No wonder we were so lacklustre at the start of the second half if Marco was on the concourse at HT.

    MS was definitely in fat man disguise.

    He appeared as Deeney? Shrewd move.

    Hope this is worse than it looks, otherwise our injury curse has struck again:mad:
