  1. We need 9 at the back and leave GD on the halfway line.

    Hopefully GD will take the precaution of packing a good book.

  3. They may have done with a champs league final to play. They won't now it's their final game of the season and potentially their triple clincher.
  4. He'll be very busy. Lots of 40 yard clearances to chase down.

    Plenty of time for a Super Fiendish sudoku & a glass of sherry.

    ideally we'd score the winner in the 97th minute

    Not sure what’s best for us City now win the league and are playing cup final for the 1st team ever to win domestic treble or Liverpool win the league and city are just playing for fun in cup final. Either or is as bad as each other. Hopefully Javi has a master plan for the occasion

    I'm remaining positive. 2 down at half time, gracia brings geri on. We win 3-2 with a last minute belter from Deeney after Deulofeu decides to square it for once rather than shoot.

    Got the worse record apparently of teams in the top half of the table against them.

    Mind you we've been a bit unlucky a few times - Man U and Arsenal x2 - deserved more than 4 defeats.

    The media were c***s towards Watford even back in 1984. Nothing much has changed in all that time. Attitudes are still the same.

    When it matters. When it really matters, I think he can.

    What the f*ck is Nick Owen wearing? And what is his hair doing?

    I guess people have noticed all the "W" connections in our Fa cup campaign.
    Watford's cup run started at Woking. We reached the semi final to play Wolves at Wembley and we retun to Wembley to play in the final. Maybe we can do a Wigan and Win the cup!

    Is he out of the final? He's the guy that makes them tick. Big news if true.
  25. ...or get Walloped 6-0 ?

  26. Or do a Wombles and Win.

    Can't see us keeping a clean sheet though, so not 1-0...

    We won't.

    Or maybe we will!
  29. And Woy was managing Cwistal Palace in the quarters. And Newcastle were managed by a Spanish Waiter.

    Yeah.. because TV AM were considered the cutting edge of the football media world back then :rolleyes:

    Personally i'm just glad this footage has been unearthed. This came from the recently created Youtube channel dedicated to our 84 cup final build up which can be found here.. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxrSF_0YBs1RnnZRHITiOPA

    It's nothing to do with TV AM. They were respectful enough, apart from putting GT next to a couple of loonies. I'm talking more about the reference Nick Owen made to the bad press Watford were getting at that time, and GT admitting it was unfair and did annoy him. This is why I said the media were c***s towards Watford even back in 1984 and nothing has changed.

    Sorry.. thought you were referring to the overall clip.
    I always felt GT was somewhat accepting of us being labelled a "long ball" team back then, or at least he thought it was inevitable. He of course preferred to use terms like long pass or simply.. direct. GT (and others involved with the club) got annoyed with journalists that tried to simplify what he was doing. A lot of time and study had gone into the style of play and when some media men talked about us "punting it upfield" i'm sure it irked him no end.

    I dont think this was true of all in the media though. Like today you had some that gave it more thought than others.

    Nice to see Rennes shocked PSG in the French cup final. Can we do the same to City?

    No, no we cannot.
  34. We could shock them by conceding 14 goals ?
