Will Hughes made 6 tackles for Watford against Burnley, twice as many as any other Watford player.

But he can't tackle according to some... Too lightweight.

That was always nonsense. Hughes was always way better at tackling than Bryson or Hendrick were, people just didn't recognise it.

Hughes was a great tackler at Derby.

Indeed he was. Only two players ever managed more tackles per game than Hughes at Derby.

George Thorne and John Eustace.

As it stands, no-one has made more tackles in the PL than him so far this season, he's made 6 in both games. 

Admittedly, that will go down as they play against more of the top teams but it's still a great stat for the here and now.

Or maybe it will go up as the opposition have more of the ball?

Statistically, tackle stats get slammed against the good teams. They tend to lose the ball via interception, or it going out of play. Getting tackled is genuinely rare.

Andi Weimann joint top scorer.

Said this before last nights game....

Quote

"I've said before, I'm finally playing through the middle again, where I think I can score goals.

"Obviously getting goals in my first two games settled me down a little bit - I feel confident and even on Saturday I got into a few positions where I could have scored.

"I'm getting into positions where I can score goals so I've just got to keep getting there to score a few more goals."

Aren’t coaches bloody fools eh?

Blackman thinks the same to regards his position.

Im genuinely happy for Weimann, he’s a good guy and try’s his hardest for he team.
