Fabbrini could be 'big, big player' for Hornets. Picture: Action Images

First published in Sport by

Beppe Sannino believes Diego Fabbrini can be a “big, big player” for Watford if he improves the defensive part of his game.

The 24-year-old, who has been capped once by Italy, impressed against Udinese yesterday after being introduced from the substitute’s bench with 15 minutes remaining.

He played a crucial role in the Hornets’ second equaliser, tricking his way past a defender before crossing for Daniel Pudil whose header was nodded home by Mathias Ranegie.

Fabbrini joined Watford last summer from Udinese but spent the second half of the campaign on loan at Siena.

However, he returned to the Hornets this summer and has impressed during several pre-season cameos.

When asked about Fabbrini’s displays, Sannino said: “Diego Fabbrini is a player with so much quality but he has to improve defensively. If he can then he will be a big, big player for Watford.”

Looked very impressive when he came on yesterday, and his piece of skill to skin the full back and cross for the equaliser was truly sublime.

Will probably be an impact sub, as he was so many time last season. But is there enough places on the bench for him along with Fessi, Igloo, Ranegie and Murray? Hope so.

Never thought I'd say this, but actually, based purely on yesterday, Fabbrini could be good for us. It comes with a conditional though. I mean, last year he was good pre-season, but didn't cut it in the Championship. Of course, Fabbrini has played for Sannino before, so maybe he knows how to channel his talent.

I think where he played in midfield is possibly better than in attack. One of the most frustrating things when Fabbrini was playing last season is that he was way too deep for an attacker and left Deeney completely isolated. And of course, an explosive midfielder would be a nice option, given Toszer, Abdi and McGugan, however skilful, are all rather slow and methodical in style.

Played well at the CAM role. Believe he could make it this year if he stays consistent and gives it his all. By the way, did anyone else think that Andrews was abysmal yesterday? Course he has my backing as long as he's a Hornet but I heard from Brighton fans that he was awful there. Can anyone comment on how he played against Coventry?

In what way was Andrews awful? I don't understand your comment. Please explain. Citing some bloke from Brighton won't do. My opinion: Andrews was industrious, showed a good first touch and awareness, and is capable of breaking up play too - essential for this division.

He gave away possession a number of times and completely took out luis Muriel. You could Argue it was a good foul as he could have broken through on goal but he just looked rather out of position etc throughout the game

Andrews played 31 matches for Brighton last season, and they made the top 6. Why did they keep picking him then if he is so bad?

Agree. Don't think Andrews is a starter. He's someone to bring on to defend a lead, which we aren't very good at.

Don't bother Neil; some people see what they want to see. SuperHorn's Brighton mate said he was useless (I remember people saying John Eustace was too) so SH sees what he wants to reinforce it. I saw a decent no nonsence defensive midfielder in the Eustace mould - exactly what we were missing last season.

Personally I think he had a pretty solid first half and showed plenty of commitment. Yes he got caught in possession a few times, but we were playing a very experienced Udinese. Early days yet.

Andrews is a solid pro who's spent most of his career in this division, and picked up 35 caps for the ROI. he won't get you out of your seat with fancy tricks on a sunny day against Udinese, but he won't go missing when you need him on a wet Tuesday night in Rotherham either, he'll be there, getting his foot in and having a word with the ref. And in this division, you need that just as much as a few fancy stepovers

I think Fabbrini was pretty harshly judged last season by a lot of fans - he wasn't in the team at the start of the season when we were doing well and Deeney and Forestieri were in form. He only began starting games when the whole squad had a wobble and it's always going to harder for a flair player in a struggling team than a grafter. Hopefully he can get some games when the team is high on confidence this season then I think we could see a different player. There are very few players in the Championship who could pull off the trick that led to the equaliser yesterday...

What I liked about Andrews was the way he filled in as a centre half whenever one of his team mates, usually Tamas yesterday marauded forwarded. This happened once or twice when Tamas (and I'm not getting on his back, it's kind of what happens) got cuahgt in possession out of position... Andrews slotted straight in at the back 3 as if it was the most natural thing in the world. That kind of experience was sorely lacking last year

We know that Poppet, but the argumement is - how do you keep good players happy when they cannot even get a place on the bench?

Remember, nine of the squad have to be "home grown" this season, and our number of Brits is a little on the low side.

It is all very well saying that some of these guys will get a chance when suspensions and injures dig in, but that could as far away as December or January!

It is a fine balancing act which Beppe has to perform. Let us hope we have a good League Cup run to utilise the full squad?

Fabrinni had some nice touches yesterday but I still haven't seen him win a ball in the air yet. That is definitely a part of his game that needs improving big time. On the plus front he is one of the few players who can ghost past people as if they weren't there but he still needs to work on his finishing and tracking back when he loses the ball.
I like the new striker Ighao from Granada he looks a real trier who will give his all for the team and I predict will soon be a fans favourite. Good to see some Ranegie using his his prescence and controlling the ball well. However he did look a bit slow at times.
Good to be back at the Vic cheering on the golden boys. Just one gripe to some of the people sitting in the 1881 singing section. If your not going to sing could you bugger off to another part of the ground and give your place to the fans who really want to be there.

I am hopeful that we can get something from Fabbrini this season as he some touches that are just beyond most players at this level. I felt a bit sorry for him last season as he seemed to always have to come on as sub and single handedly try and turn a loss into something better. Having said that he was too lightweight for some games and ended up being completely ineffective. As with Forestieri where you really want him is with the ball at his feet in the oppo's penalty box, but getting it there in the first place is the problem.

On the plus front he is one of the few players who can ghost past people as if they weren't there but he still needs to work on his finishing and tracking back when he loses the ball.
I like the new striker Ighao from Granada he looks a real trier who will give his all for the team and I predict will soon be a fans favourite. Good to see some Ranegie using his his prescence and controlling the ball well. However he did look a bit slow at times.
Good to be back at the Vic cheering on the golden boys. Just one gripe to some of the people sitting in the 1881 singing section. If your not going to sing could you bugger off to another part of the ground and give your place to the fans who really want to be there.

COYH
that a bit of a stupid thing to say. The tickets around the 1881 section were being sold on the day from the ticket office for cash. Do you really think people would ask 'oh is this in the singing section? you'd better find somewhere else for me'

brain in gear before speaking please

Played well at the CAM role. Believe he could make it this year if he stays consistent and gives it his all. By the way, did anyone else think that Andrews was abysmal yesterday? Course he has my backing as long as he's a Hornet but I heard from Brighton fans that he was awful there. Can anyone comment on how he played against Coventry?
Don't know what game you were at as I and all the fans around me thought that Andrews had a solid game.

Don't think we can afford the luxury of Fabrini and Fessi, give me Fessi any day (doesn't get knocked off the ball as easily as Fabrini). Both very skillful talented players but I can't see that there's room for both of them.

Yes

"Get out of here baldy" 2 Kings 2:23 (New International version).

Or better still, "Judas hung himself" (Matthew 27:5) - "Go and do likewise" (Luke 10:37).

If you have a Bible in the salon Mr Ugly, take a look some time!
