  1. Chris Martin needs to be dropped

    To get the best from Martin you need to play into his feet. Playing balls in behind to run on to or lofted long balls aren't going to work. The few times we did play into his feet today he did well. His 1 2s brought some needed tempo into our attacking third.
  2. Booed off at half time. Not taken long at all for it to start this season...
  3. The Wardrobe Watch

    Martin was unlucky not to score and get get an assist last night. Great awareness from him to lay off Huddlestone with his chest in the first half. The ball through from Vydra did look like it was slightly behind him which means he has to readjust his body and unfortunately mis-hit the ball. Regardless of the finish it's good to see Martin still getting himself in dangerous positions and hopefully he and Vydra can link up more throughout the season and form a good partnership. It's a shame that fans have to try and twist stats/ performances to fit their narrative of a player being bad.

    Nice composed finish there by Vydra.
  5. v TSG 1899 Hoffenheim Match Thread

    6 of their starting 11 today started 20 or more games last season and another. 10 of the starting 11 made 14 or more appearances last season for them. The remaining player being Gnabry who made 27 appearances for Werder Bremen scoring 11 goals last season.

    Good covering by Keogh there
  7. v Kaiserslautern Match Thread

    Great header from Russell there. Unlucky not to get a goal. Good save from the keeper.

    Feels so wrong seeing a midfielder wear the number 2 shirt.
  9. New kit revealed 7th July

    Just picked up the new home shirt today. I think it's a big improvement over the last couple of shirts. Feels much lighter and breathable than last seasons and it's so nice not having the collar rubbing on your neck. Printing was around an hour wait today so bear that in mind if you're thinking of picking up a shirt from the store.
  10. v Macclesfield Town Match Thread

    Very pleased with Bennett's performance today in the second half. Looked a threat and was making things happen throughout the half. Hopefully he continues with this level of performance during the rest of preseason and into the start of the new season.

    Very nice offer and good to see Mel continuing to help out the fans. Hopefully this leads to a decent following attending the pre-season matches.
  12. Beautiful Football and/or Promotion

    If I had to choose then I would definitely go for beautiful football. During the 13/14 season I felt proud of the way we were playing and was always looking forward to the next game. It was truly entertaining. We showed that you can challenge for promotion playing attractive football. In contrast, when we were top under Clement playing a slower more methodical style I just didn't feel that same excitement. Games weren't as entertaining. I wasn't looking forward to the games as much because I knew it was going to be another slow game relying on a moment of brilliance rather than being a true attacking threat capable of scoring at any moment. I think it's the teams that play attractive football that get remembered and not the ones that get promoted playing dull football. In 10 or 20 years time which side will you remember more- the 2006/07 side or the 2013/14 side?
  13. What do you really think of Morris?

    It's nice to have a supporter running the club. He certainly wants the best for the club and has shown that he's willing to invest the money in the academy, training facilities and transfers to try and bring us success. Some of his decisions have turned out to be bad and the change in philosophies around the style of play have led to a bit of a mis-matched squad. The players that have come in may be better individually but the resulting team is weaker than that of the 13/14 and 14/15 seasons. We've gone backwards under his ownership, at least on the pitch, but all it takes is one good season for us to be ahead of where we were at. Overall I'm glad to have him as owner and if he learns from the mistakes he made then there's no reason why he can't bring success to this club.
  14. Official: Will Hughes joins Watford

    We need to be getting double figures for a player of Hughes' potential and quality. It's been clear that our valuation of incoming players wasn't the best over the last couple of seasons but I thought we'd at least put a sensible price on our outgoing players.
  15. Which CB/RB will go?

    Ideally it would be a CB leaving. For me it would be between Pearce and Shackell. I'd want Keogh to stay as he is able to bring the ball out of our defence which the other CBs don't offer. I hope that Christie stays with us and he and Wisdom compete for the RB spot. Baird did well for us last season but realistically this upcoming season will be his last with us so I'd rather give the game time to Christie and Wisdom to help them develop further.
