NUFC v Watford
25 November 2017 10:58 Post ID: #485037
It's important we get a result today to keep us firmly in the mid table pack. A result which would see the pressure stay off a group of players not quite good enough.

We do so against a Watford side that have been struggling of late regardless of their win at home to West Ham last week with them going into that on a similar run to we're on at present.

With no Atsu or Lascelles again, it'll be interesting to see who goes on the left today and I wouldn't be surprised to see Aarons get a starting hour or so to try and mix things up.

I also wouldn't be surprised if we see Henri Saivet start in the place of the suspended Isaac Hayden with Merino having to make do with the bench.

Another interesting decision is the continuation of two strikers, whether it's a straight two up front or one behind. Results haven't been there but I think it's been working with more chances created.

Starting today, the conversion rate has to improve or we're in trouble.

My predicted starting XI:

Elliot, Yedlin, Clark, Lejeune, Manquillo, Aarons, Shelvey, Saivet, Ritchie, Gayle, Joselu.

Wonder how many I get wrong out of that....

7 away games in a row Watford have scored 2. I can't see us ending that run.

Fancy us for some reason, Silva seems to be the current flavour of the month, but I like the way we started last week and think we're due a win, Merino may be back as well. As good as they've looked at times they lost a 2 goal lead to Everton the other week, we can win this. Need a more positive selection from Rafa mind and substitutions early if needed, and the right ones. Easy this management business.

When benitez allows even this team to attack,they look pacy and neat in their passing, which is gold compared to what we saw under previous managers employed by ashley.

So why is he so fucking negative.

It's Watford....at home !!

The numbers and the speed they attack with are far to superior to us, Murphy looks lively mind, you can just see these lot scoring more than us comfortably.

Come on Rafa you’ve nothing to lose here, we need goals, these lot can easily get 3, but can defo be got at if you have a go. Give Aaron’s a game, get Merino on and for Christ sake get Joselu off for Mitrovic and get him on the first available flight out of here. Can someone also please go through that Albino twat.

The value of the club is dropping game by game. We'll not have many more than 14 points come 1st January. An absolute piss poor squad of players.

Agree with that.Aarons Merino and Mitrovic on.Knowing Rafa though it will be Shelvey,Gayle and Ritchie off to make way for them.Joselu and Manquillo should be nowhere near the starting 11.

We can’t afford to have our best players missing with this squad and Lascelles and Merino are arguably our best players. We also can’t afford not to buy a striker as missed chances lose you points quickly at this level. Yet again we should’ve been 1 up, toothless upfront.

How many fucking times have we got caught in possession, thinking we have all the time in the world like a championship side while the slicker superior premiership side quickly nicks the ball of us and attacks at will. We need selling and quickly.

I must admit we are weaker, slower and far less intelligent than the opposition. If I was Amanda I would certainly insist in that relegation clause or I'd walk away. You'll need to spend 50/60m on this squad in January at least. Both full backs are shite, no number ten, goalkeeper or strikers. It's a fucking shambles.

Who was it that said benitez was a world class manager if that tart has any sense she will tell fatty to shove his club up his fat arse, because they will be one of the 3 clubs relegated in may.

Is Rafa yesterday's man? Are the new young coaches more switched on to the modern game? The fact he brought Diame in and stuck with Joselu makes me fucking wonder. Is he deliberately playing our shittest players to make a point? Has he changed to two strikers to prove that when you've got shit players it doesn't really matter what system you play? At some point he's got to fucking man up and take a bit of responsibility. He can't live off the luckiest Champions League win ever, for ever. Valencia was a fucking long time ago as well. A nice, decent bloke but lets have 5 fucking million quids worth of manager.

Minimum requirement from Benitez is attack the opposition when playing at home,else we will be relegated.

It's no good blaming the players as I suspect most of our support will do.

Their players were 2 or 3 yards ahead of ours, in the head never mind the pitch.

Benitez is a defensively minded manager whose side at the minute cannot defend . Troubling indeed.

Its benitez squad if he were as good as some on here think he is we wouldn't be getting beat of the likes of Brighton/Bournemouth/Watford/Huddersfield. Yes fatty is a stingy cunt but benitez is supposed to be world class.

Lascelles a big loss, we're not good enough to lose key players, we haven't got many, but he's one and they looked fucking hopeless without him.

To be fair it was his championship squad, and did that show clearly today.He wasn't allowed to get a premiership squad for the errrr...................... premiership.

I always say who could do a better job with the players available ? I used to ask myself this when Pardew was in charge and I'd easily be able to rattle off 20 managers. I'm sure there are managers who could do as well as Benitez but not better. A bad day but there's brighter skies on the horizon .
