    That wasn't nice to read. However, it's easy for him to criticise when they've got untold millions to spend on players who can play it beautifully. If we had the same budget does he think we'd be playing like we do?

    "Pompey have combined the two, winning the old Division One in impressive style, with flowing, attacking football, including some high-scoring away wins,"

    err... so did we. and we did it through hard work, will power, and belif.

    "Many people describe Watford’s rise to the Premiership – and their apparently plucky performances against other top-flight sides this season - as epitomising the romance of English football."
    thats because thats what it was you ignorerent git

    "It is extremely difficult to play against – though perfectly within the rules of the game – but it guarantees that no match involving Watford Football Club will be flowing, attractive and skillful."

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qtp-3rCchB0 - skillful enough?

    "Worse still are the ugly and often illegal accompaniments: defenders smothering their opponents, dragging, pulling and obstructing; and the obscene gamesmanship – timing their “injuries” to break up opponents’ momentum; taking an age over goal-kicks to eke out precious seconds to reduce playing time still further."

    worse still than that is when a professional athlete falls forwards when pulled backwards.
    "Injuries" were exactly that, foster had a knee problem before, and went off, and bouazza didn't choose to be bulldozed over.

    "And his young replacement, apparently making his debut, showed he had clearly been brought up the Boothroyd way when he resorted to the same tactics within seconds of joining the fray."

    where did you get that from, get your facts right.
    resorted? the phrase is assessed the situation and choose the best option

    "Yes, they’re not the only team to employ some of these tactics, but they’re one of the few to combine all these elements with little else to show in mitigation or excuse."

    I think you'll find we do not dive, unnecessarily time-waste and are top of the fair play league

    "As I said, there are many – even among Pompey fans – who will disagree with my philosophy, arguing that a team should be able to adapt to play against such tactics."

    Funny how you keep mentioning how there are 'many' who disagree with you, could this possibly be because your wrong?

    "And when the game is refereed by an official such as Saturday’s, when so much of Watford’s smothering and time-wasting tactics was allowed to pass unpunished, it is a virtually impossible task to let the beautiful game win the day."

    The referee was poor and helped you, you have no reason to complain about timewasting, as you won.
    We deserved at least on penalty for a clear and deliberate handball

    "Boothroyd’s now customary post-match griping about officialdom was all the harder to take for his team’s cynical approach to the game."

    This is the first time he has openly criticised officials like that.

    "I accept there is more than one way of playing football, and of winning a match, but for the sake of the game as a spectator sport, please don’t let it be the Watford way."

    I suppose you prefer the foreign investor way?
