Hornets v Forest Match Thread


12:30 KO!



Chris Hughton needs to earn his corn tomorrow, the post January improvement in results due to the influx of three very astute loans in Murray, Garner & Krovinovic has run out of steam.
The team is back to huffing and puffing, not scoring and then conceding. The relentless pace of the pandemic compressed season doesn't help for sure, but it's the same for everyone, so we have to get on with it.

As has been commented before Luton found Elijah Adebayo who has made an instant impact and scores goals.While Luton have done their home work where Adebayo is concerned, it's not that difficult to spot these players. Ivan Toney scored 24 goals last season for Peterborough United.

I think that Hughton needs to start with Taylor and give him some playing time, he has scored goals for Charlton and needs to find his confidence.


Watford have a shortage of central midfielders and have signed former Aston Villa and West Ham midfielder Carlos Sanchez for the rest of the season. So it looks like Man' United recalled James Garner because of a lack of game time under Xisco Munoz.
Jao Pedro will be available after his one game ban after a second yellow against Bournemouth. Nathaniel Chalobah serves the second of his two-game ban following his 10th booking of the season.

Watford look like a difficult team to beat, but they do slip up from time to time, they also put six past a demoralised Bristol City a while ago!
Lets hope that Ryan Yates is back in contention because he can add a goal threat.

We need players that are hungry and prepared to take one for the badge - as I say, the money and celebrity status has just made the modern footballer into a non-caring mercenary, that’s more bothered about their Instagram account than they are giving their all to the Club - this is right across the board, not just at Forest

The problem we have is that we just pick up everyone else’s cast offs and journey men - there now heart in the club whatsoever

The only ones that seem to really care and show any passion are Worrall and Mighten the vast majority of the rest as useless

I think Yates cares, not sure he’ll ever be everyone’s favourite but true supporters who know a bit about football will appreciate that every team needs a Yates kind of player, someone who will take one for the team and get stuck in, Watson was also in that mould.

Derby lost

Not great, but a decent performance against a very strong side. Came close to equalising second half after conceding a poor goal in the first 20 minutes.

Thought we'd equalised in the last few minutes but Taylor was offside. I'd start him next time, and start Lolley over Freeman. Probably bring Ribeiro back for Bong and Cafu for Yates.

We should be alright this season only because they are worse teams than us.
The penultimate game of the season against Sheffield Wednesday could be significant.
Barnsley are doing really well !!

I thought we competed we at times. Took the game to a former premiership,side. Had Taylor’s offside effort counted we’d all be happy right now. Different day, different outcome.

Nobody beneath us made any in roads today, a point would have been good but it wasn’t to be. Reading, Norwich at home next followed by Brentford and Cardiff away, 4 points would be a reasonable haul from that lot, that’s a win, Reading is the best bet for that, and a 0-0 against one of the others. Can’t say I am feeling over confident but the championship being as crazy as it is anything’s possible.

Then important and defining thing will be not to lose against any of the teams below us
