Discussion in 'The Hornets' Nest - Watford Chat' started by EB Hornet, Jan 26, 2019.
There will be, say, 97 minutes of official playing time.
Less than 4 sets of 25 mins.
Are you over 60?
I don't know if this has been posted elsewhere, but well done to Woking for their promotion yesterday. It was a very friendly club to visit in the 3rd round and I know they are behind us for the Final next week.
With the drunken parties that their players will be a part of, hopefully they are too hung over to play. I’m also hoping that the hatred they have for United will help us. If we win, Man Utd’s season starts 3 weeks earlier than everyone else’s. Making Man Utd play in the Europa League qualifying rounds, is something I’m sure their fans would love to see, just to mock them.
91 minutes if we are losing.
98 minutes if we are level or winning.
So 91 then.
We knew before the season started that we had duff CHs. It's not a knew problem though Cathcart becoming **** doesn't help.
Probably, though if MC still needed another goal to beat the "margin of victory record" we might end up playing 117.
Transfer window opens today. Jeano get ur check buck out and bye some defendas!!!!
When Kompany said that they'd be giving 100% effort next Sat.
Don't be surprised if we see the first use in football of the declaration.
Start with Kompany, Laporte, Otamendi & Stones, & send them to Udine to chase the girls alongside Wilmot.
If we don't turn up (physically, I mean) do they just get a 3-0 walkover ? Is this a sensible option ? To preserve pride we could claim we thought it was a Sunday KO ?
That would the pragmatic solution.
Or turn up in Manchester on Saturday 'for the first leg'.
Or steal the cup before the game and then refused to play till it has been returned
Watford have invited the class of '84 to the FA Cup final. Nice touch I think.
Interesting because the Mail said we hadn't and claimed they were told to buy tickets..
Seems like a bit of a PR rescue effort really.
Any centre backs still able to put in a shift? Is that a coincidence?
Didn't we have to field the youngest ever defence to play in a final?
Neil Price being one who led the Watford old boys group (might still do..)
We'll probably have one of the oldest on Saturday!
4 of the back 5 in their 30s.
Better than the tossers in the ‘Class of 92’.
I tell you who is dullwitted.
The older Neville.
For a couple of years on MNF he built up a reputation for being astute, being strategic.
But, chaps, all things are relative. He was standing next to Gobber Carragher!
The Manc Mastermind today defended criticism of Salford’s crude attempt to buy success.
‘People don’t realise’, he said, ‘we’ve put millions of our own money into this.’
I was only 10 at the time but I believe so, hence losing Rostron suspended really messed us up that day.
Didn’t we field 3 guys the year above you at school?
I think our 84 side would just about give our current lot a run for their money.
Mind you most of them are in their mid to late 50's.
Reckon I can get them to give my lunch money back on Saturday?
Price was looking pretty tough in the S Times.
His eyes followed you round the page.
Wasn’t Foster on the bench in 84 as a young cub goalie?
This is the away stand of FC Inhulets Petrove in the Ukraine.
If they win the Ukrainian cup final on Wednesday against Shakhtar Donetsk, they will go straight into the group stages of the Europa League next season.
This should be enough motivation for Man City to let us win.
Let us win and we go straight into the Group Stage. Man Utd’s season then starts 3 weeks before everyone else’s for qualifying rounds. Then imagine Man Utd drawing this team in the Europa Group stages. Man City fans would die of laughter.
Clutching at straws but I know your reading this Pep, so do us a favour and post this on the wall in the dressing room, as well as the dugout, to remind yourself what’s at stake.
The mermaidy sculptures at the bottom of the ‘stand’ help to soften it a bit.
At first I thought you’d found an artists impression of ****-town’s proposed new ‘stadium’
I don’t think they could afford such sculptures on their stands. If they could, it certainly wouldn’t be something exotic like a mermaidy thing. It would be something that represents the city, a knife, caravan or someone with 7 fingers and webbed feet.
If it’s a stand, why isn’t it near the football pitch?
Is an away stand - it travels with the fans to away games?
With Pep’s famous attention to detail, Abu Dhabi Academicals have doubtless trained up a platoon of Pickles the Dog to track down missing trophies.
Which explains Delph’s role in the squad. Dog handler.
I was not aware before of the mysterious Jackson.
The alternating green & yellow seats bring a little whimsy to the ensemble.
Presumably, the Grand Prix circuit is located between the cage & the tea shop in the background.
