Jake: ‘who do you think you are kidding, Mr Moyes?

Managers are not paid to say their teams played badly, they deserved to lose and there’s surely now no way back. Over to our own David Moyes, who ‘thought’ we deserved a point or three. Mmm …


The defeat is a little bit harsh
on us, I think we deserved something out of the game from the performance we gave and the way the lads stuck at it.

We defended set pieces well; that was a big test for us as Watford have some big players in their side.

I was frustrated by the lack of chances we created; that’s been a problem for a while for us.

The subs we made did well, [Didier] Ndong and [Wahbi] Khazri brought something new to the game when they came on.

At that point we were a goal down and we pushed for an equaliser but it wasn’t to be.

There’s no time to dwell though as we must go again on Tuesday; we pick ourselves up and I’ve told the players that.

We wanted a win from one of these two games and we didn’t get it today, we came close to getting something, but we’ll have to try and get it on Tuesday against Leicester now.

We deserved a point at least today, I thought we stuck at it and we need to make more of our performance next time out.

    A point was pointless. Three points were required and to achieve that goals need to be scored. JD was totally ineffectual yesterday so no goal threat at all. We’ll limp on until relegation is mathematically certain (5 more games?). As usual the fans were PL, sadly the team is Championship at best.

      I fear you are spot on Eric. Apparently we are 33:1 on to be relegated. Survival now would make our previous miracles look like a walk in the park.

    He’s more than deluded he is dangerously deluded, he has the motivational qualities of a slug,( apologies to any slugs who happen to be reading this). To try to be fair to Mr moyes the seeds of the mess this club is in were planted a long time ago, and have been meticulously tended to by Mr Short . We are at least 10 year’s away from having a decent side, and that only if we get rid of Moyes and of course Short. As ever I live in hope.
