Watford (Away) Saturday February 9th

Recommended Posts

let's hope the good playing from man city follows to this match.  same lineup sans walcott.  in current form i would accept a draw no doubt, just get some points and move on.  

 

                              Pickford

            Kenny Keane Zouma Digne

                        Gana Gomes

           Lookman   Davies  Bernard

                                DCL

I can't see Lookman starting Silva won't change the 1st line up that looked like could do something for along time.

Can see richarlison coming onto the left and Bernard right. Walcott was absolutely rubbish.

 

I hope he keeps the midfield 3.

Definitely just to see if it is a midfield trio with some mileage in it that can improve with more games together.

Lookman has done very little for me, he's shown a few moments of trickery now and again but absolutely no finished product, Richarlison back on his own wing and Bernard in place of Walcott. would be my only changes.

Watford will be up for it so will the crowd thinking silva will get the sack, can’t see where a win is coming from. 2-1 

we may pull off a win here but it will mask the massive problem of inconsistency

I haven't seen a massive amount of Watford this season but with those two in central midfield they are very physical. Deeney wont give an inch and Deulofeu we all know can do something magical. If we try and go 2 v 2 in midfield we will lose. Gana needs to play in front of the CBs and stop Deeney getting easy control of the ball and stop Geri running at the CBs.

Wtf Gylfi playing out on the right God help us Bernard Walcott or Lookman please, Silva is turning into Koeman Mark Il

I'd imagine its a diamond with Richarlison and Tosun leading the line.

Interesting... I hadnt thought of that. It would definitely he a move away from the norm.

Glad he reacted to Walcott horror show. Gylfi tucks in off the right to support Cenk. In theory love the change, let’s see if it comes off. 

I'm not against him playing in that position either *as long as* the design is that he has players around him to link up with. If he just gets hung out there then it wont work.

Keane carrying on appealing for an offside when it wasn’t instead of trying to get a challenge in.

Disgraceful. Started with Gomes pulling out of a challenge in midfield.

He had a good chance at the other end too.

Gana too. Weak link is Gomes by far. Someone needs to give him a kick up the arse, its like its his first game of pre-season.

Gana has been passing well, spreading the play abit which has been good. Gomes is a strange case - playing well within himself. Richarlison needs to stop play acting.

Underrated keeper in my opinion. Seems to always make the saves he needs to and rarely does anything eratic.

The combination or Richarlison, Davies and occasionally Kenny or Tosun are causing problems. More by hard work than skill.

Obligatory just before half time free kick given away.

We actually look to be showing a bit of chemistry, spirit and understanding in attack, nice to see a bit of growth for once.

A proper centre forward and we are in the game here. Tosun for all his efforts is just left wanting.

Not good but not bad. The problem is that we don’t look much like scoring. All our chances have been half chances with comfortable saves from Foster, the best one probably coming from the glancing header by Zouma. Tosun is working hard and creating but every shot he’s taken has been directly at Foster.
