    We are playing away to Burnley on Sunday at 1:30pm. They are playing in the Europa League later on today and have supposedly rested some players for Sunday. I'm hoping that's not the case.

    The question is whether we can score let alone win away?

    Well Merson predicted a 1-0 win to Burnley so I’m suddenly feeling a lot more confident.

    Sounds about right TBF.
    Vydra off the bench after 80 mins and scores after about 87 mins. Volley over his shoulder from 20 yards. Reveals a "Gino, I told you I could score in the prem" T shirt.

    Even more so at Chorley.
    ps I believe Corby Town FC play a high pressing game.

    Couldn't have timed it better, best time to play them. AG to score against his old crew. Forum loves him from this point forward.

    Nurse, I haven't taken my medication yet today.

    Burnley 1 -Watford 2

    Burnley have to qualify tonight and for that they will have to win. Hopefully a tight match that goes the distance.

    They've only got 17 fit players, which sounds familiar.

    Get the monkey off our backs in the first away game. I'm sure the players want to.

    0-1 Hornets.

    1-0 Burnley. Barnes will deliberately jump into our centreback at a set piece and one of their midfielders will slot home.

    Hopefully 0-0 tonight so extra time, then penalties, and a couple of injuries !

    1-1 Gray and Vydra to score. To give some talking points to a dull game. Hopefully I'm way off the mark and we beat them 0-4 Deeney Gray with a brace a piece as Burnley are in some European coma after going all the way to a penalty shoot out tonight.

    I expect that will be the fault of our medical team.

    Sounds like Dyche has got a job lot of Hornet cast offs including MV & the Colney Crazy Gang.

    I think we'll pleasantly surprise ourselves and win this one. Joe Hart's first Burnley howler is due, 2-0 us.

    Nah every game this season will end much like those last season.

    Boring, 1-0 Burnley, physical game where they shut up shop after scoring

    Except for the only game we've played this season, which had a much different outcome :)

    Burnley do not concede many goals so I will be happy if we can keep a clean sheet in this game, and hope to sneak a goal, but I would settle for a 0-0 draw if not.

    Good point. Hart is due a blooper. Revising my premedication to 1-1.

    Post Brighton optimism extinguished, as Dyche's brand of 'Allar-ball' (the Allardyce version of Sarri-ball) sees the Hornets out-muscled in a set-piece, aerial bombardment masterclass.

    Holebas's free-kick radar resets to its 17/18 vintage, our goal drought away from home continues, and somebody gets injured (most likely Pereyra - players of that class and technique are not permitted at Turf Moor).

    That's my excuses out of the way for the dullest of 1 or 2 nil defeats you'll ever see from the greatest league in the world...................

    1-3 to us

    Deeney to score
    Pereya to score
    Holebas to have a blinder and score (followed by questions of wtf is going on)

    Followed by

    Deeney to chesting it down and passing to vydra to score for old times sake

    They've put a fairly crap side out tonight, so I don't think Dyche fancies a European tour

    They are a fairly crap side.

    Clearly the overwhelming negativity on this forum spurred the boys to win last weekend.
    10-0 to Burnley. Deeney relapses from his weight loss and Andre Gray punches Gracia.

    They frighten me with their nasty pointy teeth.
    Bring back Joslyn for this game and possibly Steve Sims too.
    I would be delighted with a point but foresee a dull 1-0 defeat.
    Dyche will look smug and sound like a cement mixer.
     
  34. If they don't score until after 167 mins of football, it'll be against Fulham next week. Much as I love Slav, that don't bother me none.
