    With our defence looks like we simply plan to outscore the opposition. Why didn't FF come for that cross just before Watford's 3rd?

    Their 3rd looked an obvious offside to me, but still an awful goal to give away.

    Good job our forward players did the business today, because our defence is badly out of sorts and let in 3 yet again.

    Bit of a shame 4 goals on the road but GD only improved by 1, should be high up the order on MOTD

    The cross was what, 6 or 7 yards out? He's 6 foot 8, he should be claiming those for f*cks sake.

    Entertaining game
    we were a lot better than the score suggests

    Look good going forward but crap in defence
    Stephens does not offer much really. Barely won a 50/50 header

    Deffo need a top CB in the summer even if VvD stays.
    also clearly need a unit in midfield as Romeu cannot do it all
    I bloody hope Careces is fit soon

    Redmond my MoM, cracking game from him
    Tadic good also as was Gabbiadini

    This team has taken a 180 degree turn. We've gone from a defensive team hoping Austin scores a goal to an offensive team just trying to outscore the opposition.

    We'll take that but Stephens out of his depth really, we must play Carceras against Spuds. JWP knackered all match should have been replaced at HT. Need to get Boufal on much earlier.

    A win is a win but sloppy at times and should have finished the game off much earlier

    I do not think it is at all. When you start the season with Fonte and VvD as CBs and now you have Yoshida (who was good to be fair) and young lad way out of his depth....this should have been a fairly comfortable win really....hey ho

    Another 4 goals away from home. Not too shabby. We go through periods where we switch off though. Look excellent going forward!

    Back in the top half, woohoo!

    Fun fact, that's only the third Premier League game we've won after conceding an equaliser since we got promoted! Can anybody name the other two?

    Good result, played pretty well but my how careless with the ball were Watford, plus they just seem to have no tactical discipline whatsoever.

    Very happy, some lapses in defense could have cost us, but overall the shape going forward is far better.

    JWP had a bit of a shocker, poor decision making.
    Forster couldn't do much with the goals.
    Stephens/Yoshida - good in parts but also got dominated in the air.
    Tadic/Redmond - Superb
    Gab - Good, but not his best game, was in the right place for the goal.
    Cedric- Overall decent
    Bertrand - solid as ever
    Davis - Very good, pushed the team forward
    Romeu - Decent, but almost cost us a goal with a bizarre piece of play, not his best game

    Overall as a team we are far more dangerous due to Gab's movement and Redmond and Tadic combine like that we're a force.
    I think JWP needs to be replaced by Boufal, as he's a bit off colour and making far too many mistakes for my liking, and why on earth does he bother with short corners with his talent on deliveries.

    Great win. Lucky that we have coincided conceding loads of goals with scoring loads!

    Pleased for Redmond who has had some very OTT stick at times this season, excellent player.

  36. Default

    Time to give Stephens a rest; Yoshida carried him today. The other area of weakness was midfield where once again, Romeu was asked to do much of the DM work alone. Hope we see more of Boufal from now on; he makes things happen. Cedric was great again today, but Bertrand unusually quiet - Tadic and Redmond stood out.

    Just a thought Gabbiadini going into the crowd after scoring when already having a yellow card. Was I the only one thinking he might get a second yellow?

    Like to see PEH or Clasie alongside Romeu .I really don't like or rate Davis and never have.Still a wins a win, would've been an absolute injustice if Watford got anything out of that.They were terrible, very niggly .Need to tighten things a bit at the back.What a difference Gabi has made to attack. Everyone seems far more confident going forward a real game changer for us.

    Too many games we concede goals for nearly every shot on target.

    Still, going forward is now our forte. What a difference a few months makes.

    The new Saints - we will score one more than you?

    A win away is always a good result but we are missing VVD at the back.

  43. #43

    Very sloppy in possession second half giving far too many balls away. We were outmuscled for long periods but fortunately they are pretty poor.
    That said we do look much better at the other end and 3 points is all that matters. Just hope VVD is back soon.

  44. #44

    What a win. Our attack is electric at the minute. We need a new GK and a new CB. 4 shots on target against us today, 3 went in. It can't be that almost every shot on target for them goes in, it's getting silly now.

    Caceres has to start from now on over Stephens. He's an international standard defender, Stephens certainly isn't . We're missing VVD yes, but doesn't help when our keeper let's in more shots than he saves. The best keepers in the league have saving percentages of nearly 80. Forster's must be in the 30s now. He never comes off his line either. Huge bloke and claims nothing. It's embarrassing.

    Forster…I'd like to see him dropped. But if not stick with him until the final game and definitely look to replace him.

    Brilliant from Tadic and Redmond. Another for Gabbiadini. We need to give it a real go at Spurs, we are on fire going forward at the minute. The only way to get something in that game is to try to out score them with attacking open football. We simply can't defend for **** at the minute and the less said about Forster the better to be honest.

    We got lucky there, we all know the defence is weak but Romeu and Davis were poor in the last 20minutes, giving the ball away numerous times.

    No heads dropped after the equaliser, that is a key difference.

    Reckon shipping Fonte out, and getting Gabbi in has boosted team spirit no end.

    7 points behind 8th with a game in hand. Things are looking up.

    That was so fun to watch! We def need VvD back or Cacares to lift our defense, but the front half of the team on fire.

    Rest of the season could yet surprise us. 36 points still to play for. We're 11 points behind Everton in 7th. That's not completely out of reach.

    Loved it. Amazing to think at the start of the season I was thinking you could plug any attacker (Redmond) into our team of the back of our back 5. Now it's plug a CB in and solid it up and we are top 4 - funny season.

    Tadic, Redmond, Boufal & Gabby - superb, top 4 front line with a good defence.

    Nice game for the neutral? A good three points but if there had been 10 more minutes we may have lost that. Far, far too complacent from Redmond to lose the ball in their half which then led to their third and once again Forster acts like a statue when a deep ball comes in.

    I wanted to give Stephens the benefit of the doubt - I think he'll make it one day - but at the moment he cannot handle big forwards as often he just doesn't even bother jumping. Plus he gets caught ball watching and let's himself drift out of position meaning Yoshi has to clear up for him (if he can).

    Boufal has great feet, but often has no end product - needs to get his head up more. I did say in the match thread that I thought taking off JWP for Boufal was not the right move and so it proved (to a certain extent).

    Lastly, Puel made a huge mistake IMO bringing on the smallest player in the side to face what was obviously going to be an aerial bombardment by Watford at the end. Should have taken the opportunity to get Caceres on and give him a little match time.

    Overall delighted, but we made hard work of a game we bossed. Once again.
