    Another one for the ******* squad who are more interested in what's next for them than their contract to play football at Watford.

    Funnily enough he mentioned that he was staying at the London Colney Holiday Inn after the game when they got back at 1am so can only presume that was one he had to pay for out of his own pocket!

    The David Brent of Goalkeeping really struggling with the videos now he's lost his USP of the GoPro in the goal. Can't help thinking he would be an incredibly irritating person in real life.

    Probably why Will tells him to **** off constantly. He's sick of the ketchup weirdo.

    Had a Q and A on the last one.

    Basically all about the Man U players he watched from the bench/stands most of the time.

    Did say Sarr was the quickest player he had played with.

    Wonder if there was a Go Pro on the bench when that free kick went in and the celebrations afterwards ?

    Just looked up his youtube channel to see if yesterday's stuff was on there (obviously too soon to be so), but saw the Norwich one. Lots of comments underneath about fans from other clubs picking us as their 2nd team now. I appreciate for some of you you'll be annoyed / don't care etc about this, but it can't do us any harm. Picking up fans bit by bit whichever way necessary is all part of growing the club. The general feeling is what a great bloke he comes across as. Wouldn't surprise me if the club wanted to keep him next season for this reason.

    I must admit, the vids after defeats were very annoying, I certainly wouldn't have released them if I were him (although I believe there wasn't a L*ton vid, which is something at least), but I don't think it's that big a problem tbf, I don't think Foster is the kind of personality to kick off behind the scenes and cause trouble. I read recently that Sierralta and his family like them and use them to learn English which is something!

    Definitely have been toned a bit in terms of in your face action but guess it has given people to enjoy .

    I guess they didn’t stay in a hotel for the Luton game ?!

    “Big Baz” should ask for royalties each time he appears.

    I think Big Ben should be our No1 keeper in the PL unless we bring in someone younger and at least equally as good as him from outside. Bachmann did OK as his substitute, but he is still not as good as Ben IMO.

    Anyone else reckon this was a farewell? Does seem odd to give him a game out of the blue, if anything, this felt like the kind of game to give Elliot a spin

    Going by another one of his Cycling GK videos it seems he expects to be involved in the Premier league somewhere although that was more to do with using his GoPro than anything else !

    What did he have to say about that? Are the Prem going to allow it? I know he came to an agreement with the EFL over copyright, but the Prem might have other ideas.

    He basically said it was going to be much harder to convince them than the EFL, but he and his mate are going to try. He did also give a nod to the fact he might not be number 1 next season, but he would continue to do match day vlogs like he has been doing.

    He was asked which managers he didn’t like but said he wasn’t one to bad mouth people .

    Different to Troy then !

    His favourite was Hodgson.

    Probably because he picked Ben for a World Cup and was at WBA with him.

    Just heard on Ben Foster's podcast that he's going to see out his last year of the contract then wants to go to America for a year then retire.

    Hilarious how we have two goalies who both have an error in them, but make very different kinds of errors, plenty of ammo for both sides in the debate lol

    Foster was brought on as Bachmann got dropped rather than due to injury.

    On his latest video he is out cycling in London on Friday morning before training that afternoon - guess its why he is pretty fit but probably supposed to be resting up surely?

    It's a shame the Premier league don't allow any footage of him in the game as now it's just a travel/food blog with some celebs involved.

    And also finding out how poor he is at Fantasy football!

    I much prefer his videos now. We all watch the games so I'd rather see what the players are like off the pitch.

    Between his YouTube channel, matey approach to every opposition player when inappropriate and his general attitude since we've been relegated I've lost any long held respect I had for him for his previous achievements with us. Inviting away fans into the home end shows how he holds the club in contempt when it can further his own goals.

    I get it, he's a grizzled veteran of 20 odd years, he's clearly not going to have the same passion as us fans, and I don't mind him having a side project (he's not the only one in the team who has a YouTube channel), but not when he's taking the piss out of us like that!

    If it was him of course and not someone else who has got a ticket from Ben via the complementary ones all players get?

    Although that is usually in the SEJ .

    Needs to be removed from the squad. Another who treats the footballing side of things as a sideline. Give me Heurelho any day of the week over this gurning idiot who is more interested in gaining views on his channel. It's hardly Kurosawa or Chabrol. Far too many players in the squad who still have an awful work ethic and seem to think Watford is beneath them. If you don't want to work hard and focus on what you are paid to do then bog off. Preferably in the next window.
