  1. FA Cup 3rd Round Draw - Man Utd (A)

    Premier and Champioship clubs in alphabetical order. Remaining clubs in order the 2nd round fixtures were drawn.
  2. Will Hughes Watch

    I watched both of his games and didn't see anything I hadn't seen him do for Derby. I think the difference, and what he's had to learn, is playing in a more advanced role and therefore less time. At Derby he tend to sit at the base dictating the pace of the play so, yes, he did slow it down. Further up the pitch you can't do that. Having watched him from his league debut a Peterborough, when we thought a Ball Boy had sneaked on the pitch, he's had a lot of challenges and always figured them out.

    The way players are dropping out he might make this squad ๐Ÿ˜€

    Agree. In poker terms Mel and Gary have gone All In with selling Will. Hope the hand their hold is promotion otherwise they'll lose.
  5. Official: Will Hughes joins Watford

    Agree with this. I've got a season ticket for me and my 2 lads so will be there next season supporting the team but with a 150 Mile round trip will I be there on a wet Tuesday if playing functional football? I'll admit I wasn't under Pearson. If we grind our way to promotion I'll be there next season but if it's to watch us or the opposition I'm not sure. The last Prem season still hurts. I'd rather we'd played football and died trying rather than drudgery. My support will always be there but my money is more discerning.

    Said earlier in this and other threads that I'm disappointed that I won't get to watch Will play again. Sitting high up in the West Stand you get to see the whole pitch and appreciate how Will moves the opposition around creating space for others. I'll miss watching this. We'll move on and hopefully use the money to improve the squad. I also hope Will reaches his potential and I'll enjoy saying I knew he would do well. My disappointment is how poor we've been in the last 3 or 4 seasons. Cheers Will, thanks for the memories ๐Ÿ‘
  7. Disillusionment

    Said similar in Wills transfer thread. My biggest disappointment is seeing how much we've gone backwards in the last few seasons and can't keep our best players.

    I was trying to make a positive out of it. Thinking of Barker and Blackpool and Butterfield and Huddersfield

    I will be disappointed if he goes. I'm sure the money will be invested wisely and we may actually get a player or players who help us get promoted. The thing is I enjoy watching him play football. I'm disappointed when he's not in the starting 11. He isn't always brilliant, he makes mistakes and on the odd occasion makes a woeful pass but sitting in the Library (West Stand Upper) you can see him pulling players around, making space and picking passes that others in the team can't even see. He passes where the player will be, not where he is. I also think it illustrates how disappointing we've been over the last 5 or 6 years, in that we haven't been able to get promoted with one of the best championship players in the team. At the moment this is probably my biggest disappointment, not that's he going but that we haven't progressed enough to keep him.
