    He made a massive mistake against Chelsea bringing off Deeney for Watson, he settled for a draw when we were in the ascendancy and should’ve actually won the game, instead we lost it because we lost all our attacking impetus and Watson was woefully out of his depth (not been near the team since). Our defenders are our weakest link, and individually our worst players. We are not very good at defending so I think trying to defend against a team like spurs is pretty futile because it’s the thing we are worst at. We had another spell yesterday (admittedly when they had 10 men) when we kept the ball for what seemed like at least 5 minutes, if we do this the opposition cannot score.

    That’s a little simplistic. Chelsea were getting on top even before the substitution. In theory putting Watson in there should have protected the defence more but with his lack of minutes on pitch this season, Watson struggled big time. Think the tactics were correct though.

    Yep, still don't understand why Allardyce felt the need to make those comments

    You get the impression that there is a little man lost inside FSA's somewhat larger frame.

    Too right, and it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest l if there was a very little something associated to outside his somewhat larger frame n' all.

    Marco might also have mentioned that, unlike Fat Sam, he has never been fired from the role of national team manager for Gross Misconduct - or whatever it was that the chiseling, gum-chewing, slob got the bullet from the FA for

    He could also have said that it's unlikely he'd down a pint of wine.

    It's also the case that silva has never had to cut up a terd with a kitchen knife in order to flush it down the bog

    obviously Allardyce is a repulsive human being but Silva shouldn’t have responded. I kind of like the drama but it’s classic egotistical football managers’ shenanigans showing how much Silva likes people talking about him and his future rather than the club. He probably wears one of those WWJD wristbands ‘what would Jose do?’

    BFS is probably the sort of **** who makes comments like that, Silva responds, then BFS says to his mates “got a bite here” whilst doing the fishing motion.

    I'm loathe to defend Allardyce here, but having heard him on Talksport, it seems he responded to a question about how he felt about being 2nd choice behind Silva

    Think he could have answered a little bit more diplomatically, but at least it wasn't unsolicited

    That's the media all over. Ask a provocative question and puff up the response into a drama over nothing.

    Silva v Jabba - their head-to-head records of the first 7 seasons summed up very nicely in these tweets:

    Should we end up being on course for that, Everton will swoop in and take him (because they can). As a parting shot, Allardyce will leave him one of those terds you mentioned, tucked away in the managers desk drawer:eek:.

    Oddly enough 'Big Fat Sam' fits nicely into 'Birmingham'!

    Can I change my opinion of Silva to 'he's alright but not as good as he thinks he is.

    Fecker was playing with fire with the Everton nonsense now it seems the team is losing discipline as a result. If players know the boss isn't hanging around I guess the motivation will drop. So many basic things wrong right now it's maddening.

    There's a rumour that Okaka signed Steve Harrison as his new agent just after the Liverpool match:D.

    Gino has made a massive mistake in turning down 10 mil from Everton for our rancid little snake of a coach. The players look like they’ve downed tools because they obviously don’t buy into him anymore . We’re in free fall, at this rate Silva will have another relegation on his CV
    I know I am firmly in the minority when slagging Silva off but I’ve been banging on most of the season about my concerns on his coaching methods. He ain’t no where near as good as he thinks he is. In my opinion, the sooner he’s gone from Watford the better. Arrogant little ****.
