I just wonder what the consequences of that defeat will be. They are still talking about the Derby thrashing in 1903!! That result will be a stain on our record books. No one wants the record (joint with Derby) in their history books. We are being laughed at by rivals and sympathised by neutrals. It's going to be thrown at us in every match next season no doubt. It's not going to be very pleasant. Deeney is now the captain of the worst team to play in an FA Cup final in living memory and every player in that team will be tarnished by it. It's going to be a millstone around their necks. Just getting there, is not really going to cut it. Getting their then embarrassing yourself is what's going to be remembered. If we ever get to a final again, will these players be invited back, like the '84 team were? Will they be remembered fondly? It really brings it home when the manager of the opposition is squirming in his chair when the sixth goal went in. This result will be used to emphasise how small Watford are as a club. It's a case of "ahhh…..poor little Watford, but you did well to get there" tap on the head. It's going to take a lot to break away from this. A result like a thrashing in an FA Cup final, will stay with Watford forever. It brought it home to me when I bumped into a Spurs supporting friend yesterday. Without prompting he just said "good grief, what happened there? That was painful to watch". That's coming from a neutral fan who was genuinely uncomfortable about the match. I know the attitude will be "we'll lick our wounds and bounce back stronger", but I wonder how deep these cuts really go. It could cause some real damage to morale going forward. It's not so much the size of defeat that's bad, as we've had these before, but it's the match it happened in. What do others think the fall out from this will be? Or will it be business as usual next season with no long term side effect?
