Thank god we have a manager who understands defenders have to play football as well as just stand there heading balls out and hoofing it as far as they can. We are looking at long term now as well as present day.......Zola knows the prem so will be looking at players that can cut it there as well.
    "He has class all over him...can pass ..can shoot."

    Then stick him up front or drop him. He is a liability. We can't wait while he learns how to head the ball, not be shrugged off the ball and how to mark a forward.

    Our other defenders don't just "stand there heading balls out and hoofing it as far as they can" ? Have you really been watching the team recently ?? Who has been hoofing ??
    IMO Neuton is a class act but needs guidance throughout a game - therefore if played alongside a Fitz Hall or a Noz there may be no problem.I think the issue we have at present is that possibly Neuton and Ekstrand can't play together?Not saying this will always be the case though but communication certainly needs to get better.I have seen enough of Neuton to know he will be quality.TBH at the moment my biggest concern is Murray - wave after wave of attack came from him being unfit which resulted in putting his own defenders under all sorts of pressure - as a result they were all f@c"ed towards the end of the game & that is when we needed them most!"

Nathaniel Chalobah will remain on loan at Watford until the end of the season.

Confirmation the 18-year-old, who has an enjoyed an impressive first half of the season for the Hornets, is not a surprise after Gianfranco Zola told the Watford Observer on Monday that "it looks like" the midfielder would stay at Vicarage Road for the remainder of the campaign.

The paperwork has now been completed and the England Under-21 player is also available to play for Watford in their FA Cup third round tie at Manchester City on Saturday.

Zola told Watford's official website: "It's great news for us. He has become an important player for us since he came to the club.

"His performances have been getting better and better so we are delighted Chelsea have decided to leave him here.

"It's good for Nathaniel and it's also good for Chelsea because he is getting a lot of benefit from this experience.

"It is a huge boost because if we want to keep improving and chasing the teams in front of us we need to have good players and Nathaniel is one of them."
