    Why don’t i feel relief ? is it because playing like this it’s difficult to see where any more points are coming from ......

    Absolutely, just no fun to watch. Completely got away with the added time, there was over 7 mins but rarely do they get it right. Fantastic though, not completely convincing but who cares, on we go to Saturday. COYH!

    I feel you. I just feel more torture to come. I want us to stay up mind and I guess those three points could make it only one more win needed. Some pundits ahve said they think that Muff n Villa might not win again all season, we can but hope - if that happens well today's results might well be key.

    I cannot believe how negative some of you are
    Yes its a bad season but it is in OUR HANDS and going back over the season VAR has cost us at least 9 points
    If we had had the sort of luck that LiVARpool and Chelski have had we would be qualifying for Europe
    Get a grip and remember where we were 10 years ago

    It took a bottle of wine with a early dinner and a large whiskey during the game to see me through BUT my glass is ALWAYS half full never half empty

    been in our hands for about ten games , two wins and a draw , in that time , 4 points since the re start , only thing that might save the drop is teams that are worse .....villa might be the only conceivable one capable of getting something .....i really can’t see us getting much , we set out not to lose , then fall behind , chase the game , and fall further behind ........

    https://www.watfordobserver.co.uk/s...layers-rated-coming-behind-beat-norwich-city/

    Player ratings .. your thoughts?

    Some of mine...
    Foster.... good game... solid.....
    Hughes .... worked tirelessly
    Dawson..... has grown so much into the team since those awful ealry season games
    Sarr---- oscillates between brilliance and erraticism
    Deeney... mm... ??
    Doucoure.... Def off his best and cant seem to keep any sort of shot on target
    Capoue... not firing on all cylinders either
    Welbeck... Coming to show how good he really is.... and a candidated for goal of the season... certainly the most importan to far

    I must say it was unconvincing. We have lost the knack of stringing passes together, and some of the crossing is woeful. It's been the same all season mostly, with a few odd exceptions. We also got lucky - Ndah should have scored, but a bit of luck always helps in these situations.

    I agree our passing game has gone a bit but there were signs tonight that we can still play that way but there seems to be a preference now to hoofing it up the pitch towards TD which has a low probability of success.
    I think Sarrs pace whilst being a great advantage is also a disadvantage because he is going so fast he doesn't take time over the final killing cross which seems to go anywhere and doesn't cause any problems.
    I thought the game entertaining but it was stressful which took the edge of it.
