    Weird having a game on Thursday but yes this is a game for Watford that could define their season, Forest are on a good run at the minute.
    Probably due to how its televised, weird day to put it on though indeed. Shifted our match with Brighton back to Sunday as well which makes it all even more awkward...

    Yeah it's all very weird, TV getting involved is really messing up the fixtures.

    West Ham really have been scraping the barrel this transfer window.

    What about that Wilson kid?
    Injured for another month at least. Delfouneso has signed from Villa and Pressley is keen for a second so we'll see what happens tomorrow. Supporting this team really is thankless...

    Yep, basically we're after a big man and a fast one up front. Delfouneso is the quickie, we'll see who the big man is.

    Don't think this management change has worked out brilliantly for Watford so far. Still playing 3-5-2/3-4-2-1, which obviously didn't work without Vydra, still not getting the results, still losing in winnable positions, despite apparently being 'defensively organised'. Subbed on Almen Abdi today, despite he obviously wasn't fit and came off 10 minutes later, waste of a substitution. 2-0 up at half time to losing 4-2, awful.

    Oh, Watford. When will it end.

    Clearly the destruction of the East Stand has dug up some devilish voodoo negating the ability to defend well.

    Hey there, Torquay United fan, although I stil follow all the other leagues when possible.

    Tough season for us. New manager in over Christmas who can hopefully keep us up! So far he's doing a decent job and bringing in some good players. Expecting a big pay-out soon as we've got a clause in the contract of Eunan O'Kane giving us 15% of the profit from his sale from Bournemouth likely to someone in the Prem. With two games postponed on the trot would be nice to get some cash in!

    Ok so the three strikers we banked on at the start of the season are all leaving. Griffiths the only one I can admit to be truly disappointed to see go.

    However the moves that have been made are hardly showing an intent to get back to the prem.. unless our young Eusebio is already as good as Messi.

    Signing the top scorer isn't bad compensation to be fair.

    Im not doubting his scoring rate. Just his work ethic and the fact I can't see him firing them in in the champ (if we even get there)

    Couldn't find a loophole to allow them to trade a stand over.

    Always a bugger when that happens. There is a loophole for relocating a team with no justification though-Greg Clarke was keen to maintain it.

    If he scores loads it doesn't matter how hard he works.

    Well he seems to have lost a bit of pace towards of the end of his Villa career and he became very lazy, but we'll see what he does for you.

    It's harder with foreigners, they do things differently.

    He should score in League One.

    In all fairness the players you need to get back into the top flight are hardly going to join a League One team. Get promoted and you can easily make a few solid signings in the summer with Doyle, Hennessy and Relegation Roger's wages off the books. Did you ever get rid of O'Hara? He's probably earning more than Leyton Orient's entire first XI.
