    If he'd hung on one more day, he could've gone to Liverpool given their defensive injury problems.

    They probably need a centre back more than a full-back these days and all!

    Allowing the ball to bounce over his head at one point and his own goal when under no pressure during the Brighton game sums up his career at Watford for me.
    At most he was adequate at best, but he was generally an awful player.
    Premier league and Championship is above his skill level. He tries hard, but he was never good enough.
    He was good with his community work. So fair play for that.

    You are so right, those 2 incidents really sum up his 341 appearances for WFC. :eek:

    Post #75 sums up LaClusazSki’s career on here.
    At most he is adequate at best, but he has generally been an awful poster.
    WFC forums and social media in general is above his skill level. He tries hard, but he’s never good enough.
    I’m sure he’s good to his mother. So fair play for that.

    Robert Page was an expert at letting the ball bounce I remember !

    Once got him into real bother at Bolton on Sky I re call.

    It is safe to say that l never rated him.
    My point was that those incidents summed up his Watford career to me.
    I said that he tried hard. That is the best l can say about him.

    Oh dear. I have upset an elite member.
    No one cares what anyone writes on this or any other club forum.
    It is just a way to moan, to praise or to show total ambivalence to the dross on the pitch right now.
    The club don't care nor do the players.
    I just think that Mariappa was a poor player. That is all.
    No need to get upset about it.

    Elite member? I suggest you consult this list before you bandy about that term. http://www.wfcforums.com/index.php?members/&type=likes

    Total likes is not the best way to assess forum members. I suggest you go over to the Tittle Tattle forum immediately for further details...

    Interesting.
    The race for top dog is tight as you say.
    What is the prize for the winner?
     
  15. How do the end of season play-offs operate ? Asking for a friend.
    The late RookeryDad has been losing ground on the top 6, and needs to re-find his form very soon to avoid dropping out of the Top 10 with Keighley <300 behind.

    Even tighter when it comes to "Trophy points".....

    The top 6 is finalised just as soon as hornetboy1 drops out of it.

    He was top of the league not so long ago, to my considerable horror.
     
  17. I'm hearing your 300+ likes of UAE and Moog posts in the last fortnight are being formally investigated.

    At his best, he was a very good championship player, not quite good enough for the Prem. Think you've been harsh.

    If he plays tonight probably be MOTM!

    As l have said on here many times before, l never rated him. He treated the ball as if it were a hot potato. He never seemed comfortable with the ball.
    Ivic or someone else in the club obviously didn't rate him enough to keep him on. Our back line is awful, but still they let him go.
    He tried hard, but was not good enough.
    A nice guy with all his work in the community though.
