    I don't think it really matters which one is better. The fact we have both of them plus King and JP is amazing really. I think it's a bit premature to talk about Dennis leaving given that he's only just joined us, is happy at the club and has a 5 year contract!

    Absolutely.

    Probably is wrong to be fair, I had a quick look and the rumour seems to have come from some guy saying he may have done a ligament just from watching the challenge, it seems to be a bit of a guess to be honest rather than having any inside knowledge regarding Sarrs assessment.

    In case no one has mentioned it.

    Watford scored what is disputably the best goal ever to have happened in the history of football against Leicestershire. Many non Watford fans from around the world agree.


    Almunia (what a double save)
    Cassetti (what a clearance and divine cosmic justice for the dive)
    Anya (such control)
    Fessi (what a cross)

    oh and what’s this?

    and here is Hogg (selfless assist perfectly placed)

    and who is this who has run the length of the pitch to ******* Smack the ball home

    DEEEEEEENNNNNYYYYY

    Im lookng forward to selling Dennis for 50mill and Gino buying everyone free half time pints on the profits.

    Haven't read it on the internet to be fair. All i know is knee injury sounds bad. Fingers crossed eh.

    To be fair I could only find it on that same website that said Kucka was out for 4 to 5 months only for him to start in the next game. Yeah, hoping it was just an impact injury rather than anything major.

    Legia Warsaw are second from bottom in the Polish top division.

    They have lost 6 of their last 7 league games they could genuinely go from winning the title to getting relegated in the following season, I doubt too many clubs have managed that.

    Going by our last two wins there, it seems we only win at Leicester when we're better than them (which is pretty rare) and we're good, or when they're ****. The win in 2004 happened when they were really in the doldrums (was the collapse of ITV Digital a factor?) when, having bounced straight back up after relegation from the Prem in 2002, they went straight back down and went into decline, flirting with relegation in four successive seasons before finally succumbing to relegation to the third tier for the first time in their history. At the time being back in the Prem, let alone actually winning it, must have seemed a million miles away for their fans.

    Sounds like Dennis isn't expecting to be called up for AFCON. Must have a realistic chance of making the world cup though, if he keeps his form up.

    I listened to Music in a Doll's House and I found it bloody weird, even Faust seem pretty conventional in comparison. An interesting listen, but I prefer the more mainstream prog like Genesis, King Crimson and to a lesser extent Yes, and even the more far-out Canterbury Scene stuff like Robert Wyatt.

    I really wanted Sema to work out at the top level, but it seems he hasn't really improved since his last Premier League outing. You can trot out the same excuses as to why he's struggled - playing out of position, wrong formation, playing in a team with patchy form (Gracia era), not playing with people he knows, but the fact is if he was any good at this level he would be able to adapt and shine to some extent even under those circumstances. His only remaining hope is if Dennis gets injured/suspended and we reenact the Sema/JP/Sarr trio that was quite effective (if not consistently so) in the Championship, but we'll likely be playing Cucho instead. At this moment the five-year extension, if obviously not on the same level of financial misspend as Jurado let alone Gray, ironically will turn out to be a bigger misuse of resources if we remain in the Prem than if we get relegated - I presume he will still get paid even when he is doing nothing off the pitch (as opposed to nothing on it)?

    You undoubtedly presume correctly. And yes, indeed, even if he is afforded that opportunity, if will be out of necessity rather than anything else, and the result will almost certainly be the same. As a winger he doesn't have even the requisite pace to compete at Premier League level, for a start, and it's not like he's in possession of any other overwhelmingly great attribute that would make any kind of case for compensating for that, either.

    Not sure they've played anywhere else. I thought they went straight from Filbert St to The Walkers stadium

    Correct. The first game at the Walkers was against some tinpot idiots in yellow. Needless to say it was a win for the glorious Foxes and Brian Deane (goal machine) scored.

    One of my favourite parts of the goal you are alluding to is Knockaert’s expression and body language after the goal has gone in - the perfect mix of despondency over missing that penalty and realising what a t.wat he’s made of himself.

    There was an earlier League 1 version of it in the same season, but it doesn’t hold a candle to ours - kind of like their Rover to our Mercedes. Does anyone know if the Watford players were inspired by that precedent, or was it a coincidence?

    It's all there isn't it. The flare in the crowd. The midget head coach. The pitch invasion.

    ‘Inspired’? Surely that can only ever have been spontaneous? Hardly likely that, when Almunia saved, someone scratched their chin and thought - OK let’s do what happened in that other game…

    Well, jazz and rock musicians are spontaneous when they improvise solos, especially during live performances - they’re playing whatever comes into their head at the moment, similarly they’re not thinking let’s throw in something I learnt the other day from Hendrix, Page, Coltrane, Parker, Hancock or whatever. But spontaneity comes from inspiration - it’s possible some if not all of the players saw the highlights of the Brentford-Doncaster game (which was widely known at the time, if later totally eclipsed by what happened a fortnight later) which made them think anything is possible, and this might have subconsciously influenced what unfolded on the pitch against Leicester.

    Perhaps.

    Personally I think they were just trying to score a goal!

    Confirmed. I have heard this from someone on the Internet who didn’t read it on the internet.
