    Default Matchday 15: Watford Fan Comments

    Watford FC face the humungous test known as Nottingham Forest who have won two European Cups in their past (like we’ve never heard this before!). Nottingham Forest are a shadow of the club from the late 1970s early 1980s.

    Many Forest supporters prior to the season starting would happily have taken continuously being above Derby County in the league table up to now, little would they know that Derby would prop the table up and Nottingham Forest sit one place above the Championship drop zone.

    In their last outing Forest lost at home to Swansea City by the solitary goal. In that match Forest employed a 4-2-3-1 formation. A lot of the Forest attacks came via either Sammy Ameobi on the left or Anthony Knockeart on the right. Both are ‘tricky’ wingers and we all know about the exploits of Championship stalwart Knockeart. Might see him go easily down in the box on Wednesday night like some sort of theatrical villain.

    Forest have made a number of signings prior to the commencement of the season, notably ex-Bournemouth loudmouth Harry Arter and Aberdeen centre-back Scott McKenna. Unlike Watford FC, Forest are seemingly happy to splash some cash. The majority shareholder is Evangelos Marinakis who is also the owner of Olympiacos C.F.P. in Greece.

    Chris Hughton takes charge of Forest on Wednesday night following the sacking of Sabri Lamouchi in October. Lamouchi did interest Watford prior to our relegation last season. He is currently the manager of Qatari side Al-Duhail.

    The featured game on Wednesday is Sheff Weds vs Reading.

    I assume Reading must give them bumper viewing figures as the ****s seem to be on every week.

    I don't know why as I've never met a Reading fan in my entire life. I'm not sure they even exist.

    You look at Forest and consider where they were last season (just missing the play-offs on the final day thanks to a freak combination of results) and think they can't continue to be this bad, a bit like Wigan when they'd finished 5th the previous season and got to the semi finals of the FA Cup but then kept on losing at home before getting relegated. And Forest have Chris Hughton in charge so I don't expect a comfortable win, but then I thought that before the last time we played them, and we did win convincingly enough in the end, albeit thanks to Antonio (who continued to cause problems for us at West Ham) missing a sitter to make it 2-2.

    Figueredo having an absolute mare against Swansea.

    Isn’t Hughton even more negative than Vlad was/is? Should be a thriller.

    I would happily take a scrappy 1-0 win in this one our away form has ben terrible so far but if we play anywhere near as good as we did on Saturday we should have too much for a poor Forest side.

    Did anyone watch the Forest vs Swansea game? Did Forest look like a team who are in a false position and were unlucky, or a poor side who are ripe for the taking (just like Wycombe, Barnsley, QPR then - oh, wait)?

    No they looked very average. One or two nice moves but generally impotent. The goal was a bit flimsy too, Ameobi failing to jump and a much smaller chap (Roberts?) nodded in at the back post.

    Interesting fact - Nottingham’s City Council’s longest servicing Council Leader (2003 to 2019) grew up in Watford and is a life-long Hornets fan...

    Knockheart and Harry Arter in the same team for Forest. Going to be a cheatfest.

    Really not great from either side, everyone looks knackered already.

    I'm not sure I'll be able to stay awake for the second half.

    It's just a typical Hughton performance. Bore the opposition into submission.

    Fing Knockarse.

    Still a cheat...

    Win the home games and try not to lose the away ones seems to be the motto! Another drab performance on the road. Do very little and hope to nick it which we don’t. Good job the next 2 are at home.

    Oh well, normal service resumed. Ivic's defensive tactics and lazy players. That was a bore draw.

    Notice Houghton was congratulating his players like they had won the game...

    I understand the philosophy of not losing away from home but you need to show a bit more ambition against the bottom teams.

    Forest were carp. That was 2 points dropped imo.

    Good point. Forest had lost three in a row and only kept 3 clean sheets in 25 games so any result for us here is a positive.

    Chalobah is utterly awful and should have been sent off.

    Take the point against Hughtonball. A point gained on the top 2. Dull as dishwater.

    We will end this season a handful of points off where we want to be and this philosophy of taking a point and being happy as it keeps us up there will proove to be not enough.

    Arters a ****** though.

    Holy crap that was dull. Neither team deserved it, poor match and the scoreline reflects that.

    Special shout out to Garner tonight for his various styles of corners. His famous "Scuff It Straight To The First Defender", was only bettered by his "Hoof It Straight Over Everyones Head For A ******* Throw In".

    Can't wait to see the weekly "how's Garner getting on?" ******** from United fans on Twitter...

    Just copy and paste last weeks Bristol City thread into this one and close thread.

    Forest also closed us down more than Preston at the weekend, which forced a lot of errors.

    What a slog this season will be.

    Hoping that I get a ticket for Saturday so I can boo this ****

    The Championship is ******* awful.

    We've found our level.

    Literally half of that team were playing in the prem 4 months ago and we didnt lay a glove on a team rock bottom on confidence.

    I’m going to just pretend I’m in America and support an NFL team, they get 16 regular season games. I’m just going to watch the home games and forget the others even exist.

    We were the better team, just. Chalobah is awful and seems to think he is a lot better than he actually is for some reason and was very lucky not to see red.

    Forest had no threat, as ZERO shots on target proved, so we only needed to score a goal to win....but again, that's not going to happen unless we have some shots ourselves. Only one on target and I think that was an exaggeration.

    Some balanced comments, but there’s also a bunch that seem to suggest they think they’re just slumming it down in the Championship and would be better placed at their „natural level“ in the league above.

    Surprising isn’t it, that they were effectively such a tinpot outfit until their most recent owners showed up and successfully managed to exploit the rules to load them up with players that normally would be out of their financial reach?

    Ah well, I’d hope Forest, if they ever grace the top flight again, don’t turn into such over-privileged arseholes.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Honestly, it makes it even worse that there's only 16 games (thought there was more this year).

    Especially if you're a 49er fan born in the late 90's.

    At least they’ve got Chalobah sussed. One of the laziest, most self-entitled players I’ve ever seen in the Garibaldi. Christ knows how he ever won an England cap.

    Can’t see how any of them could conclude they should have won’t that game.

    No team really produced the chances to win, but Forest were certainly the better side over all.

    Nobody likes Reading do they.

    Reasonable comments although I don’t think Watford were the better side.

    I can't agree more with this comment.

    I'll be honest. When we lose I can't bring myself to read them but still see you post on time every time.

    It's one of the best threads around.

    Cheers Calvin.

    The last time I went to Reading was 2011, the match ended up 1-1; after going a goal up, Reading‘s goalie blooted the ball against Rob Earnshaw‘s buttocks whilst slicing an attempted clearance, and then saw the ball rebound over the line for a Forest equaliser.

    The journey to the ground is a saga in itself, and I’d shudder for Forest to relocate to somewhere similar (it would be equivalent to the Reds moving to a new ground next to the roundabout at Junction 24 of the M1).

    I've worked in Watford and spent a lot of time around their fans, and been to the ground more times than I can remember.

    Their fans are arguably bigger moaners than us, whilst also recognising they're shit at the same time.

    Have you ever been to Brighton's ground? It's just off the motorway, surrounded by fields and with zero places for away fans to park.

    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

    Considering they had a front line of Sarr Pedro and Deeney they looked dogshit.

    Well it'd be useful if they didn't then maybe we'd be assured of three points at the weekend.
