Steve Morgan’s passionate display at last night’s Fans Parliament meeting has won him more friends than enemies.
While most issues certainly weren’t explored in enough detail, our chairman’s candor was refreshing.
Tomorrow it’s the turn of the players to front up.
Watford are strutting into town on the back of 7 wins from their last 10 games, making them the form team in the Championship. They’ve also won more away games (10) than any other side.
Some have complained about their revolutionary link-up with Udinese, which has seen an influx of loan players arrive from the Serie A club, but I applaud their innovation. If they can do it and it’s not breaking the rules, hats off to them I say.
They beat us at Vicarage Road back in November after Christophe Berra was controversially dismissed. At that stage, I didn’t think they’d be anywhere near the play-offs, but three months later they now look a good bet for a top two finish.
Of their many temporary signings, striker Matej Vydra and Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah are those grabbing the headlines. The latter is hotly tipped to become a regular at his parent club in the coming seasons.
I applaud Dean Saunders for trying something different against Cardiff last weekend. But it didn’t work and should have been changed sooner than it was. After Cardiff went a goal up, the pack should have been immediately reshuffled.
We were more effective in the second half and had it not been for Doyle and SEB’s profligacy we could easily have taken a point. Both are guilty of missing big chances of late, which we simply can’t afford to do.
I’d play 442 from the start tomorrow with a team along the lines of:
But we’ve lost so many games now with so many different teams, picking a strongest XI is almost farcical. I look at the whole squad and only Sako is an automatic starter. That says a lot about where we are.
42 people correctly predicted doom against Cardiff.
Most thought we’d lose by more goals than we did though (at least that’s something) with only 8 people getting the 2-1 scoreline correct.
Well done SOIAW, Steppenwolfe, Raydewolf, martin, westozwolf, Telford Wolf, Geordie Wolf and Wolves4ever for claiming the maximum. It’s a single for everyone else.
I shall continue to predict with head and not heart (and hope I’m wrong).
Up The Wolves.
