WBA v Watford

Post by Vegas Claret » Mon Aug 08, 2022 7:36 pm

hope it's a tough game for Watford and they get a couple of red cards ! A little unfair on them to play Monday and then again on Friday

The rest of the Championship are playing Tuesday/Saturday or Wednesday/Saturday anyway because it’s the league cup this week.

West Brom have 5 games in the next 12 days, tough schedule.

Never really understood the problem between breaks effectively you are looking at 3/4 days rest if young lads can’t run around for 90 mins once or twice a week with 15 min breaks & large numbers of the working population graft all hours god sends of all ages 40/50/60 especially & just get on with it.

Dennis and Sarr both starting for Watford, I still think one or both will go this window, but assuming they play Friday they'll be a real handful for our defence.

From what I can tell, nothing imminent with either, so expect both to play. Bad luck on the timing of this fixture.

Watford supporting mate of mine said he wouldn’t be bothered at all to lose Sarr. He thinks Dennis is the better player and Pedro better than both.

I agree about Pedro being the best of the lot. I’d take any of them here, but he’d be my first pick.

Karlan Grant should have had a hat-trick. Looks an incredibly limited player.

Watford look very open so I suspect we will have a few opportunities, if we have a decent striker in by then it could be a great game.

Watford very much look like a counter attacking team, be interesting to see what team prevails on Friday.

Neither look all that. Grant has a first touch of a man in wellies and Watford look shaky in midfield

They're not all that aerially so THB and Taylor is probably the best bet again, Taylor's recovery pace could be key for dealing with their counter attacking threat.
