    Made me look up Acid dance hall. It’s rubbish don’t bother.

    I’d humbly suggest this as the official music for this fixture

    Can’t see this match ending well for us. Bornemouth will be up for this and I can’t see our lucksutre chancers being bothered at all. Howe will have them running at us from the off and primed to dive at the of slightest contacts. I don’t think that Javi will be prepared for this or the niggling fouls which will go on.

    Watford 1 - Bournemouth 3

    Vast swathes of forum members turn on Gracia and post about him ‘having done what he was asked to do’, ‘he’s taken us as far as he can’ and ‘just leave already’

    Depends. A lot of it will be morale after shipping eight goals in two previously nailed on losses but it’s still a mental hit to a team who were turning a corner.

    I am confident however Gracia will use the tine before to motivate the boys and get them to move on and put in a good performance.

    Deeney and Okaka to start maybe? Just see how we do with two up front from the off and if it’s not working change it.

    We get the first goal it could be a very defensive game, and we would need all the confidence back especially Holebas and Britos. Richly to start? No. Maybe put Gomes in goal so he can play his 100th game for us?

    Literally a series of two halves: the "clever ones" (1-3) and the "funny" ones (4-6). I know that Atkinson was credited as a writer (and had zero input in later series) but I've never been able to discover where his input was in the original.

    EDIT: An embarrassment of a game for us with the 'Muff Divers getting up to their usual tricks leading a couple of us red-carded (Cholebas and Proedl) 0-3 (all penalties).

    Because of all the old people in Bournemouth, all their shop windows are glazed bifocal.

    Muff is the national centre of elderly, white, right-wing baby boomerism.

    Voted overwhelmingly leave in the Brexit referendum of course and are noted for their gleeful and vindictive persecution of the poor, homeless and foreign.

    This is where the true blue Tory council has been stealing people's sleeping bags in this freezing weather and has ordered loud music to be played overnight at the bus station as a form of torture for the homeless. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...lays-bagpipe-music-deter-homeless-people.html

    It's the same council that spent £3650 on the installation of so-called "Anti-homeless" bars on public benches to stop those lazy layabouts from grabbing even a moment's rest.

    Horrible, horrible place - epitomised by their stinking 'plucky' football team. Soon, we hope, to go back to the fourth division where they belong.

    Favourite Blackadder series in order:

    3
    1

    I loved series 2.

    The game - not a rivalry.

    Looking forward to a good game between 2 evenly match sides. Think we'll nick it 2-1.

    We’re not good against chancers, and Bournemouth are the smallest club in the league.

    Our players won’t put in effort for this lot, and we’ll suffer a very embarrassing draw/ loss.

    It makes me a little bit sad to be playing these again. Distant memories of optimism after we went to their place and walked all over them in a glorious display of attacking intent. Chalobah and Doocawray dominating the middle, Clev snapping at heels, Richie burning down the wing, full of mischief, and even Gray looking somewhat menacing. The future looked so bright.

    'International Carrot Day'? Dear God. It's probably best I don't say anything more, lest I bore you with a rant.

    Does this sum up all 185000-odd of them? They 're all exactly the same? Group identity politics - the source of a great deal of vindictiveness, wouldn't you say? Perhaps it might be discussed on a political forum.

    Our win at their place was largely due to Doucoure and Chalobah absolutely dominating the midfield, and Richarlison looking like a different player to the one he is now.

    With Capoue presumably starting in the middle, we need him to have one of his excellent games which we know he's capable of. He usually does that at least 5 or 6 times a season, so technically we're still due another 3 decent ones. Lets hope this is one of them.

    Would definitely start Hughes and put Pereyra out on the left in place of Richarlison, but I'm certain we'll likely see the same line-up.

    Fear the dreaded revenge of the muff, 0-2 or 1-3:(

    I NEVER go to, watch or listen to a Watford game with a pre-kick-off mindset of 'We are going to lose...'

    I do, however, never relax until the referee is back home and tending to his allotment...

    I am also partial to ellipses...

    3-1 Watford. Scrappy but happy...

    Clive’s got the hump because someone at the Beeb photoshopped his hat. Or so Owen Jones told me.

    Plucky bastards who dive versus a team who concede at least two every game . This is 2 or 3 to nil
    Or 1

    First Watford game in 7 years so we best perform and win by at least 3, if the last premier league fixture I was at is an omen it's looking good as it's when we smashed Pompey and Gavin Mahon scored a cracker. Taking my son to his first game too so we have to win or he might start supporting one of those big 6 teams, and then he will have to live in the shed.

    Yes, it does.

    They voted by 58,000 to 50,000 to leave the EU, so it's fair to say, therefore, that they are summed up by a leave vote.

    Similarly, of the 54 members of their unlovely council, 51 are Tories. They are therefore summed up and represented by the council which enjoys tormenting the homeless.

    In the most recent census, 84 percent of residents described themselves as 'white british'. The same census shows rather larger proportions of residents of retirement age than the national average. The council's own website admits that it's traditionally a place to retire to.

    You would surely then agree that if you were to choose a Bournemouth resident {or indeed a Bournemouth football fan} at random, the probability is that it would be an elderly white British Tory leave voter with all the prejudices, bigotry and callousness for which that demographic is so infamous.

    Our Cif is working in a shop on Saturdays now and although her English is very good after so many years here, it's not yet perfect.

    She said an elderly couple came in recently and said to her 'There's loads of Tories round here, isn't there?'

    Cif agreed vehemently. 'Yeah, there's bloody loads. Can't move for 'em' etc.

    However, back at home later that evening she pondered whether perhaps they might have actually said: 'there's loads of tourists round here'......
