Watford v Derby, Friday 19th February


Recommended Posts

Ah well. You can't win them all and @Seanis due a run.

Thought we played well against a very good team with some players that are well above the usual level of this league.

We need to play with more width to provide chances for corners and own goals.

Thought Bird had a really good game tonight, but was better in the 4-4-2 rather than being deep in the 3.

Waghorn needs dropping, I'd like to see Roberts and Jozwiak start together. I also think we seem to have a lack of options without Lawrence and Ibe to choose from. If we can get those 2 fit then we give the opposition more problems.

The lack of urgency towards the end was alarming. As are the stupidity of stupid free kicks. We got exactly what we deserved in that game for conceding 2 schoolboy goals. Give 2 goals away to a team at the top of the table you are never going to get anything out the game. 

strange I thought they finished the game well.  Roberts should not have made it out for the second half.  We were a harsh disallowed goal from a point.

Once we showed a bit of belief we gave them plenty to think about. We simply have to be braver but after being outclassed for the fist 30 minutes, I'm quite proud of how we grafted our way back into the game. Wasn't our night in the end but far from all doom and gloom.

Much better second half but they were also half a team once Will went off. 
Some of our players are just not very good. 
We had a perfectly good goal disallowed but such a poor first half did us in. Still not got a point from when we’ve been behind all year.

That WAS 2-2. It's laughable that players can be sent off and banned after the final whistle has gone, yet referee's aren't responsible for rubbish decisions! There's NO WAY the one in the first half should have been disallowed. I'm fuming at that. 😡

Except if that goal had been allowed, the totally different game that followed might have involved Watford scoring more.

We played well tonight against a good side. Man for man possibly the best squad in the division, and we were one poor decision away from a draw. We shouldn't be going down so one point isn't going to make too much difference overall, so don't be too upset by today. 

I'm more confident about Forest now than I was before kickoff.

Feel a bit aggrieved but I have to say I’d take a win and defeat from two away games this week when we probably deserved two draws.

Watford are a good side (they have a £40m player in their ranks) and they didn’t look a million miles better than us.

We’re on the right track.

Far better performance than midweek and we get nothing, just shows you how important the late winner at Wycombe was.

Two home games now and we need minimum 4 points so we dont get dragged in to the bottom again and undo all our good work of late

Ball floats over to Jozwiak with less than a minute to play 5 yards from goal and he controls it and stands still. . . braindead 

Funny, I thought he turned, tried to put the ball back into the goalmouth and won a corner. It is no coincidence that the improvements in our performance came after Jozwiak replaced the shockingly awful Roberts.
