Discussion in 'The Hornets' Nest - Watford Chat' started by Sting, Mar 3, 2019.
Yes, 1 point and 1 GD behind them with 2 home games in hand!
A few more goals would have been nice(r).
I'm still fancying us for 7th spot.................
Wolves fans aren't happy!
"My MOTM will be whoever puts Redmond on a stretcher."
Pleasant bunch, aren't they?
If Wolves lose today I think 7th will be ours.
I'm confident we'll get at least a point on Monday and I'm very confident we'll beat Wolves again, and I think we'll pick up enough in the rest of our games that that'll do it.
Everton now losing too. Everything going our way so far.
Wolves now losing 3-1
Starting to get excited at the prospect of going to some ******** in Belarus in August. We've got 2 chances to reach the europa league for next season although it's unlikely we'll beat city. Been my dream to base my holidays on Watford playing abroad since the carling cup semi final against Liverpool in 2005. We're all gonna shag a european whore!
Things stay as they are and we’ve had an unbelievable set of results!
Great day so far. Could not be bette4 and with last nights results. Would be great go8ng t9 Wembley knowing we are in Europe already
Absolutely perfect day of results, and now an even bigger incentive for us to go and beat Arsenal on Monday and put ourselves firmly in the driving seat for 7th.
If Man Utd beat West Ham as you'd expect as well then you can well and truly count them out of the race.
Incredible day for us, results wise.
And the scum lost at Charlton
Bloody hell. Leicester, Wolves & Everton losing this weekend is incredible for us.
Now over to you United..
A draw against Arsenal coupled with an inevitable victory at Huddersfield would leave us 4 clear of Everton and 3 clear of Leicester after 34 games. What a season this could be.
I think we all know we will lose at Huddersfield!
Would take 17th. The sooner we hit 40 points the better imo!
We’re now safe.
I hope the PL take retrospective action on Andre Gomes for a shocking potential leg breaker on Mitrovitch.
We obviously broke the Wolves last Sunday 7th spot is ours when we beat them at THE VIC
COME ON U 'ORNSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
Foolish to think like that- a 30 point deduction would see us in real trouble. And with our crooked foreign owners and their history of fraudulent bank letters, I'm not ruling it out fml
I recommend lumping on us to win the Champo next season.
Just in case, rather than a post-match defeat on-pitch training session we should try an avoid it by having a double on-pitch session before kick-off?
Cardiff's defeat means we are now mathematically guaranteed not to be relegated
Wolves and Leicester's defeats make 7th a real chance even if we lose at home to Arsenal.
A handy synopsis of the thread.
Even if they'd won and then we'd lost, 7th would still have been a real chance.
They both have tougher fixtures coming up and I was expecting these to be two of the remaining games they could have won.
Went to watch Watford v Huddersfield a few years back.
We lost and was coldest day I can ever remember at a game. Horizontal sleet
Thank f*** it is not middle of winter. Gerard D would be wearing a Woolley hat and a Parker
That game was Layuns(wrong spelling) 1st game. A few weeks before he was playing in front of 80k in Mexico in 80 degrees and then at Huddersfield in a gale force wind. It was so windy he struggled to stand up.
Only amusing part of day.
Sorry for off topic. Few red wines
I wonder if we will be relegation favourites again next season as usual? Or maybe the pundits will apply the grudging “they’ve got enough to stay up”.
No - we will be relegation favourites again - pundits want that
Agree. But it will be close. Yesterday just helped give a little room for our own error. As we get close to the Final our minds may wander.
If we could get 7 points from the next three against Arsenal, Huddersfield and Southampton it should be enough for us to get within striking difference unless the others have an inspired run.
“Overachievers last season, finishing eighth and reaching the FA Cup Final, many might be predicting good things for Javi Gracia’s Hornets. However, the loss of Abdoulaye Doucoure over the summer, coupled with Troy Deeney’s well-publicised weight problems, Gerard Deulofeu’s return to Everton, and the surprise exit of Ben Foster from the club after Huerelho Gomes was selected ahead of him at Wembley, could well see them end up nearer the bottom of the table than the top. Prediction: 18th.”
Way too plausible and thought out;
“Watford did well I guess winning the FA Cup and finishing 7th. Could continue to do well despite European distractions but I just don’t like the tinpot club taking a Premier League place from real teams like Nottm Forest and Sunderland. Don’t even have a wonderful football playing English manager in charge. 20th.”
