We walked this game and Watford took the lead,
It then seemed to me that everything we were doing just looked like it wasn’t going to work out.
We’d dominated possession, passing and whatever stat you like.
Yet still Deeney managed to score again, against the run of play.
I’d already got the headline in mind, in that if we can’t beat Watford at home, we’re going down.
It was as simple as that.
And frankly, I still believe that was true.
I was massively worried, because I just couldn’t see where a goal was coming from, with our incredibly poor crossing into noone in particular.
And then, as Watford had possession in goal, I went to the toilet only to find that we’d scored to make it 1-1.
We still didn’t look that good to my mind, but somehow, we managed to net again in literally what must have been the last 10 seconds.
Where my brain nearly exploded and all that chemistry kicks off.
How the hell did we manage to pull that one back?
I’m trying to wind down and have to say I thought Watford were utter crap.
And if we couldn’t beat them at home, we were looking certs to be relegated.
That was going to be the gist of my post.
If Samatta can get us a few goals, perhaps we have a chance of surviving.
And we showed some signs of not giving up, which is a good thing.
But Jesus, we look poor as a team and we’re in a serious fight to stay up.
Grealish apart (and even he didn’t have a great game), we just look so average or worse.
I still can’t believe we won that, but if we can drag results like that out, we should be ok.
It just goes to show.
I said that Watford were second in the form table, while we were 15th, yet I still thought we might win.
It’s definitely a funny old game.
To make it even stranger, I was talking to a an old time Blue nose, who freely admitted to being a hooligan, in hs day.
He said he’d got a fiver on us to win.
Does that say it all?
It feels like it to me.
I’m still euphoric, I think.
