Watford v DERBY

Hoping to make the trip south for this one, though nothing is sorted out yet, I don't particuly fancy our chances of getting a result, but it should be a good day out. We'd do well too come home with a point.

One thing I hope too happen in this game, is Lionel Ainsworth is given some time too prove what he can do.

Yeah I agree there, in a way you could say Watford are like us from last year, very effecient and attacking side!!!. I can't say I have much hope for this game in the slightist, but oh well as I was sayin to Jimbo, were capable of really hammering teams, or getting absolotly thrashed ourselves!!!!!!!

Richard Jackson has suffered a set back, with his hamstring injury is looking at having another scan, so it is a good job we got Alan Wright in, or it's be Kenna again.

Lee Holmes played in a central behind the striker role for England u19's, and impressed...as he always does, this must be something too consider for us, especialy away too teams like Watford. Peschi is no good from the start IMO.

I like Watford, they've got a good manager who i've always had faith in despite his young age, I think Watford will win 2-0.

U sound like his father Neil, I think though you've gotta say that both us and Watford took a gamble on bringing in these new young in-expeirenced managers, and its payed off for Watford and it aint for us. Who knows it could have been other way round!!!

Peschi has limped out of training with an injuey and is a doubt for this game....play Holmes or Ainsworth, it is the way forward, not some donkey in on loan.

i find this guy (or boy) Neil quite interesting. seems to be an undercover forest agent, in the enemy camp.

"John Robertson was a very unattractive young man. If, one day, I was feeling a bit off colour, I would sit next to him. I was bloody Errol Flynn compared to him, but give him a yard of grass and he was an artist. The Picasso of our game"

Nah, he just needs to learn to be more bias

Just too add too the injury woe, Hamdaoui looks to be out for the season they think he will need surgery. F'ucking typical, twice he comes and looks good and gets bloody injured.

I'm not sure about this one, I think we can give them a good game, and get at least a point, maybe a win with a slice of luck, if we don't have a good day though, I can also see a thrashing on the cards, I'm undecided, if I was a betting man, I'd go nowhere near it.

Ok then being more bias, we'll win 5-0

Seriously though, I just don't see us winning this game, too get anything would be a bonus.

You never know with derby though, when you don't expect anything they usually deliver, when you expect big things they cock it up, just look at last seasona nd this season, as a whole for evidence of that.

Also Boothroyd has just won manager of the month, so hopefully the curse strikes again, in our favour

Exactly why I fancy us too pick something up...plus if we can outplay Reading, we can outplay anyone in this division.
