Watford – Wed 25th November 19:45 – What Can We Expect?

Despite each of our back 5 trying to gift them a goal at some point ( need to address this over playing at the back) we still came away with what might be a valuable point. 

It's often the case, but I thought Watford's only real chances came from us dithering or overplaying in and around our own penalty area.

I'm struggling to understand how you don't understand how very very decimated our team is due , initially, to injuries and then Covid ripping through the ranks. Meanwhile no fans home or away.

Surely you can understand that things are just not as good as they could be. We're not third bottom - we're third top despite EVERYTHING.

I forgive being entertained whilst we are keeping up with the pack with so much of the season to come.

Just out of interest - how much are you spending to contribute to BCFC entertaining us, @Galway Red? You don't even support OTIB with a fiver so I guess you just feel entitled.

Are you drunk?

No one should have been surprised if we lost, but again we have a clean sheet, and a point, happy with that. The big loser tonight was this place...again, it seems to be getting worse, before the kick off we were going to lose, and as the game drew on the attention was drawn to how poor the players are. Same old same old from the moaning about streams buffering and or volume and then the same old usual suspects setting the tone. If you are not City Basso and the rest, just leave the support to the few on here that do actually care. You know what has to be done Mods but I won't hold my breath.

Both sides let down by poor finishing. Watford better passing & possession.

We closed down well 

In front of a home crowd groaning at any errors I reckon we lose that game.

Weirdly I thought with a home crowd it’s a game we win.

I've thought the same. Just sometimes he's needs a bit more composure on the ball. 

Proving the point about composure with that last kick! 

Much better second half although it looked like a few were dead on their feet. 

For all the criticism they get our back 3 were up against a Premier league strike force and kept them out. That's just one goal conceded in the last 4 and given injuries and covid thats pretty good no matter what the opposition.

Great performance? Now that's a embarrassing comment. Can't fault the effort but technically not very good at all. Watford were there for the taking, they've only won once in their last 6 away so let's not make them out to be world beaters.

Don’t think I’d say Watford were there for the taking, they’re much better than that. Thought we kept a possession based team largely in front of us tonight. If we finish above Watford come season end we won’t be far away from the promotion end of the table

They’ll no doubt end up top 2 or 3. £60m+ worth of strikers. Probably the best keeper to play at this level. We had 9 players out injured and still played really well. On another day we win that game 2-0. Dunno what you’re expecting pal

It’s unreal. This is the most positive start to a season since 07/8. Seriously what do people expect?

Watford have been poor in front of Goal all season, in many ways they have been a mirror image of ourselves, no surprise in this 0..0

It's amazing how many people get so precious on here when people dare say anything that they think could do with improving.

 

Sometimes, its not so much what is said, but how it is said that get's people pissed off.

I haven't got Sky so got the Robins TV biased account. How did Sky explain Watford failing to win?

Probably because of the players they had missing with covid, which only affects ex Premier league teams.

Chest high?? Notnsure what you were watching there. Unmarked, no physical pressure or player closing. He tried hit the leather off it but could probably have placed it a bit more. 

Body was never at the right angle for it, body had to turn too much and made the shot a lot harder to execute

if that match had been early in the season,game 1,2, or 3, and we heard no baker or kalas, i think a lot would have had us down for a heavy defeat. vyner and moore done good but vyner has surprised me this season showing to have learned a bit more.i thought he was going to be the weaker of the 2

Good performance. Watford had one great chance first half. We also had one great chance but they dominated possession. We were poor in possession, maybe we weren't pushing up enough to support our forwards. Not sure, but certainly looked more on the front foot 2nd half and we were the better side in that 2nd half.

Bentley superb again, one great save, but his ability on crosses so much better. Makes the right decision every time so far this season it seems.

Dasilva superb. Just the same as most games really.

Vyner very good, best of the back 3.

Nagy good first half, very impressive 2nd half. He was on the front foot from that holding role and seemed to cut out balls or just be in the right place to stop them on the break and so often gives a nice quick tidy pass to get us going again. Loved it when he won a tackle on the edge of our own box and then dribbled past a player. Quality.

O'Dowda and Paterson both worked so hard. Paterson a bit more creativity as we expect, moments of real quality. O'Dowda action packed winning free kicks, winning balls, picking up looses balls and part of a very good team performance in that 2nd half.

Also both Pato and Callum put in very good corners compared to Watford. We don't have much in there to aim at, but get a great ball in and it will cause teams problems, even if we don't have huge guys in there. Rowe and Moore great chances at the end there, just get a good connection and very good chance of a goal.

Semenyo absolute quality second half. What a threat he is, so unlucky not to assist Fam and that chance was unlucky too and what I like is he can make his own chances. I liked seeing him drift wide left and link with Dasilva 2nd half. The work he got through was amazing to see. Near the end he had a chance to get onto a mix up at the back from Watford and you could see he had nothing left.

Fam much more effective 2nd half. Legs went like they do, thought he should have come off a little bit earlier than he did. But not bad having Wells and Martin to come!

Against a top side, we probably had the more good chances overall, though they did have 2 great chances themselves.

Happy with a point. 3 clean sheets in a row. Fantastic.

Some of our ‘fans’ often come on here and moan about how  poorly we play without even watching the game. They can judge how well individual players have performed based on radio commentary alone. Incredible!

And yet , curiously, this is their third straight clean sheet in a row. It’s not all down to Bentley. 

As mentioned in other posts, while TM has a few scary moments he does seem able to anticipate danger by his reading of the game. 

We do seem pretty well organised and the midfield and defence keep their shape well and work very hard over 90 minutes.
