Watford boss Gianfranco Zola will 'put out the best team for the day' against Bolton Wanderers

Gianfranco Zola insists he will “put out the best team for the day” when his side host Bolton Wanderers tomorrow.

The Hornets boss dismissed suggestions the team that lost 2-0 to Bristol City on Tuesday night was a weakened side because of the six changes made to the starting line-up.

“It was a full strength side on Tuesday,” Zola said.

“We had some different players in the team but I don’t think the team was much weaker. We will see what formation we play against Bolton but we will put out the best team for the day.”

Watford have no fresh injury concerns ahead of tomorrow’s clash.

Tommie Hoban and Neuton have both been back in training this week but neither are yet considered match fit.

Bolton currently sit 17th in the Championship, just six points above the relegation spots.

Dougie Freeman’s side have been struggling for form of late, having won only one of their last six matches and their away record is the worst in the division, with just two away victories all season.

GFZ still does not seem to grasp that it was nothing to do with the calibre of the players he brought in against Bristol City. It was the amount of changes he made to a settled team that was the problem!!!

Garbage. Utter garbage. It was a weaker team and consequently we lost 3 points and the chance to go second. Does Zola think the fans are fools?

What a load of rubbish. To start with he says it was a "full strength team" and then says it was not "much weaker". That team was a hapless bundle, much as they were at the beginning of the season before the gelling process. And I am not referring to individuals but the TEAM.

I am fast losing faith with GFZ and we may have only got this far despite of him rather than because. The team has revolved around so much that he was bound to eventually settle on the best one. Then, as soon as he does, he changes everything - inept.

Zola got it completely wrong on Tuesday and I think he knows it but can't be seen to say that publicly. The midfield was the issue and as others have said young Murray needs to sort himself out before being given another chance.

Let's just hope that Zola does learn from it this time. If, as he says, the Prem is definitely now the target we cannot afford any more "unforced errors"!

Onwards and upwards - 3 points tomorrow.

Precisely. The players who came in were quality players, every one. However, 60% outfield players were altered, they hadn't played together and they didn't have the individual confidence or form. Putting such a new side out with so many changes was exactly like the start of this season when everyone was fresh and we lost a number of games before we started to gel. 3 changes per league game max, and make sure form players, (especially strikers) are left in. They can easily play themselves out of form; they don't need Zola's help to do that. Everyone will earn their chance at some point. COYH.

I wish people would stop saying it's the same as Charlton. He changed the front two and yet we scored 3 goals. We just had a bad day defensively and nothing to do with changes

If Zola make's no change's on Tuesday in Bristol and they player's are burnt out for Saturday and we lose, he is blamed for not resting player's.

If Zola makes six change's Saturday putting all the settled player's in and we lose, Zola is blamed for not keeping the same team as we played in Bristol.

If Zola make's the change's he did Tuesday and we win, he is a genius

Zola cannot win.

You cannot win every game.

Recently some fan's seem to have got ahead of themselves. We are 8 month's into re-shaping the whole club, we are ahead of schedule and are performing beyond everyone's wildest dream's.

Some fan's also seem to be forgeting that Zola is only his second real season as a manager, still learning and still developing. He is allowed to make mistake's. I make them everyday as will each of you who post on here.

He is doing a better job than anyone on here having a dig at him, so get off his back, give the man a break, get behind the team and stop looking for negative's.

Gianfranco knows just how good his squad is so why the doubters i see on this forum. He has done a brilliant job so far, he started the season with almost a new squad put together. Now we are honestly feared as a pure footballing side with many gifted players amongst our squad.When the Pozzo family took over they made it clear they only wanted Zola. Now surely fans can see why.
In past years we where known as look up in the sky team almost a laughing stock. Whos laughing now ?? There are no easy teams in the championship so the clearer people comprehend that the better. No givemes.True happy days at the club. Have Faith.

Strange how all these types of posters come out when we lose ONE GAME. Judging by the comments above, it seem that many believe they know more about football, and more about individual members of the squad than the manager who played football for a decade! We don't know how match fit each player was before the Bristol game, Gianfranco did. He put out a side that he thought could win the game and on paper, they should have.

We're 4th in the league and playing beautiful football. GZ has got players like Doyley and Nos adjusted to this new style quickly and they look comfortable. He's done a great job so far.

End of.

Not entirely accurate. In the Charlton game we were without the services of Hall and Nosworthy. So, Neuton came in and Ekstrand moved into the centre.

Yes, he played Geijo and Forestieri but we scored 3 goals !

What he says to a journalist and what is going on between his ears may not be the same thing. He knows he cocked it up, don't worry about that.

He knows he made a mistake and attempted to take advantage of the bottom team and came unstuck. He could have rested players but without so many from the outset changes and we would/could have won the match. If it had worked out for him - Geijo getting his header in at the start would have probably meant we would have gone on to win comfortably and he would have been a genius. It was wasted opportunity but not the end of the world. Trouble is that us as supporters are now getting greedy. First 10 matches we were calling for Dyche back, next 10 matches we are calling Zola a god, now we are back to saying he doesn't know what he's doing, yet we are in fourth place challenging for an automatic promotion spot straight after Christmas - people need to have a reality check and say well so far so good - didn't think we would be doing this well.

I find Eastsussexhornet's comment that he is "fast losing faith" with GFZ amazing, and to then go on and say that "we may have only got this far despite him than because...." equally incredible. This is the sort of attitude you get with multi-billionaire Premier League owners using the club as an ego trip and personal toy - sacking the manager after a brief poor run. My God, we've just lost one game for all sorts of reasons, not because GFZ has suddenly become a bad manager.

Lets get behind Gianfranco because I reckon he is doing a great job and he is backed by the best owners we have had for many, many years. They are real football people and I can't remember being so positive about my team since the 1980's. If they were unhappy with GFZ it would be for very strong reasons and we should trust them to do the right thing for the long term good of the club. I think that so far so very good.
I find Eastsussexhornet's comment that he is "fast losing faith" with GFZ amazing, and to then go on and say that "we may have only got this far despite him than because...." equally incredible. This is the sort of attitude you get with multi-billionaire Premier League owners using the club as an ego trip and personal toy - sacking the manager after a brief poor run. My God, we've just lost one game for all sorts of reasons, not because GFZ has suddenly become a bad manager. Lets get behind Gianfranco because I reckon he is doing a great job and he is backed by the best owners we have had for many, many years. They are real football people and I can't remember being so positive about my team since the 1980's.

going to have to agree 100% with this statement. GF - stop trying to fix something that isn't broken.
Judge Zola on results rather than what he says to Frank Smith. He's made mistakes but then Alex Ferguson makes mistakes. Well, he bought David De Gea.

If Zola admits to all his mistakes, he will be called a softie. If he doesn't admit to them he is labelled arrogant! Looking at the team they were more than capable of winning! I would rather have fessi and hey Ho than iwelumo and garner!
Our weakness was in midfield, all the players were watfords own and as such could not create enough chances! I would rather see Nathan, Christian and almen tearing the pitch apart than Hogg and Eustace (never thought I would say that earlier in the season) this team has come a long long way in a short amount of time, we lost to a good resurgent team on a tricky pitch in awful weather. I am going on Saturday and bringing two mates who support spurs and Chelsea, why? Cos the football being showcased at the Vic is decent enough to not only entertain our fans but also fans of other clubs (plus they can help pay for the stupid parking charges) :P
Loving Watford this year.
Love the fact we haven't lost any players in January.
Love that we are top scorers.
Love Zola and the pozzos.
Have faith people and stop the bloody bit ch ing!

You've lost faith in Zola? I've lost faith in humanity reading some of the drivel served up by certain posters on this board.

Did you really expect Zola to play the same team until someone beat us?

Did you really expect Zola to burn out the first team by ploughing them through a hectic run in?

Did you really think anyone give two tuppeny-****s about your ridiculous and shortsighted opinions?

I need a godamned beer.

Zola cannot win.

You cannot win every game.

Some fan's also seem to be forgeting that Zola is only his second real season as a manager, still learning and still developing. He is allowed to make mistake's. I make them everyday as will each of you who post on here.

Strange how all these types of posters come out when we lose ONE GAME.

We're 4th in the league and playing beautiful football. GZ has got players like Doyley and Nos adjusted to this new style quickly and they look comfortable. He's done a great job so far.

End of.
i find this post depressing. What causes this delusion, this separation from reality?

It is not a case of having lost one game. Why is that people on here seem to misinterpret and misunderstand. Losing a game is football. Losing a game is part of the process. I listed all the factors affecting a game yesterday for the hard of hearing. That isn't the point. The pointy is that this was totally self inflicted. An absolutely inept managerial decision.

I think Zola was responsible for the home defeat against Bristol City when he moved Chalobah to centre half and changed the team shape to 3-5-2at halftime - for the first time. Since then however the 3-5-2 has worked better and better and Zola has also been responsible for all the wins and fantastic football we have seen, the enthusiasm, commitment and connection between the players and the fans (not forgetting that these are foreign mercenaries with no connection to the club - according to Martin Samuel!). To have bonded such a group so well is remarkable.

Personally I think the changes against both Charlton and Bristol City were wrong for those matches (i like many thought that when i saw the line up at the start of the game) however like moving Chalobah or changing formation, Zola is seeing what else might work better - if it works it works , if it doesnt it doesnt - personally i would rather watch Zola's team play with the sense of adventure and spirit and make mistakes along the way than play percentage hoofball.

lets get behind the lads and see how they react tomorrow!!

Absolutely spot on my friend! Nothing further needs adding.
Burnt out? Perhaps we should change our name from the Hornets to the Pansies and change the strip to Pink.
You are just a tool. By the way whose Vydra still playing for? Disappointed you can't blame GFZ for that?
If it was Zolsa fault for Tuesday so be it, but then we'll give him all the credit for the previous three wins then?

Losing a game is football. Losing a game is part of the process. I listed all the factors affecting a game yesterday for the hard of hearing. That isn't the point.

Our weakness was in midfield, all the players were watfords own and as such could not create enough chances! I would rather see Nathan, Christian and almen tearing the pitch apart than Hogg and Eustace (never thought I would say that earlier in the season) this team has come a long long way in a short amount of time, we lost to a good resurgent team on a tricky pitch in awful weather. I am going on Saturday and bringing two mates who support spurs and Chelsea, why? Cos the football being showcased at the Vic is decent enough to not only entertain our fans but also fans of other clubs (plus they can help pay for the stupid parking charges) :P
Loving Watford this year.
Love the fact we haven't lost any players in January.
Love that we are top scorers.
Love Zola and the pozzos.
Have faith people and stop the bloody bit ch ing!

What a splendidly entertaining exchange of ideas and perspectives! It seems to be human nature to delight in the 'worst case scenario' whilst indulging in vain posturing. Really, we need to get over ourselves and have a reality check - we're doing fantastically well at the moment and it's work in progress. No one really thought we'd be where we are at this stage of the season. Zola has brought together a disparate group of players and made them in to something really good. We need to get behind the team and encourage and support - people visibly fade and shrink in to themselves when faced by vitriol and opprobrium. Let's share some good thoughts and send out positive energy tomorrow, we all need a little love!

It is the players that have achieved the success, not him. With a squad as good as this, a monkey could have done what he has done.
I'm really beginning to dislike you East Sussex Hornet.
So i take it you do not think very highly of Gianfranco, Eastsussex. I scratch my head in bewilderment on monkey remark.

I have supported them for many decades and now travel 80 miles for every home match but that doesn't prevent me from being incensed when, after travelling all the way to Bristol on a soaking wet Tues night, paying £ 25 to go in and then watch the reserves for 90 minutes. I have said many times now that losing the game isn't the issue - it's WHY we did.

Anyway, tomorrow I hope that lessons have been learned and we'll will be anle to shrug off that debacle.

East Sussex Horn, to state the obvious a manager picks the side he believes can win the game.If they lose the odd game that does't make him a bad manager.If the goalkeeper makes the odd mistake and concedes a goal,that doesn't make him a bad keeper.If the centre forward misses an easy chance from six yards that in itself doesn't make him a poor striker.Zola had to contend with these issues on Tuesday.When players cross the white line they take responsibily for their performance not the manager.Sometimes you have to say'we wern't at it' and the best team won.We as fans see the players at best 90 minutes per week,the manager sees them 6 days a week.In Zola we trust.

I am not actually in as much disagreement as you may think here. It is a matter of degrees though and what was blindingly obvious to everyone at the match before it started I would have thought was obvious to the manager. Anyway, I am a bit punch drunk no so I will cast my thoughts to tomorrow.

Hog out
Ditto, same for the Charlton game, that's 6 points given away, about 6 point stolen by poor refs etc...12 points on from 49 = 61 & 1st place.
Not entirely accurate. In the Charlton game we were without the services of Hall and Nosworthy. So, Neuton came in and Ekstrand moved into the centre.

Yes, he played Geijo and Forestieri but we scored 3 goals !
Since when has accuracy been applicable to much that is written here on this forum.

If Zola makes six change's Saturday putting all the settled player's in and we lose, Zola is blamed for not keeping the same team as we played in Bristol.

If Zola make's the change's he did Tuesday and we win, he is a genius

Zola cannot win.

You cannot win every game.

Recently some fan's seem to have got ahead of themselves. We are 8 month's into re-shaping the whole club, we are ahead of schedule and are performing beyond everyone's wildest dream's.

Some fan's also seem to be forgeting that Zola is only his second real season as a manager, still learning and still developing. He is allowed to make mistake's. I make them everyday as will each of you who post on here.

He is doing a better job than anyone on here having a dig at him, so get off his back, give the man a break, get behind the team and stop looking for negative's.

Strange how all these types of posters come out when we lose ONE GAME. Judging by the comments above, it seem that many believe they know more about football, and more about individual members of the squad than the manager who played football for a decade! We don't know how match fit each player was before the Bristol game, Gianfranco did. He put out a side that he thought could win the game and on paper, they should have.

We're 4th in the league and playing beautiful football. GZ has got players like Doyley and Nos adjusted to this new style quickly and they look comfortable. He's done a great job so far.

End of.

If it had worked out for him - Geijo getting his header in at the start would have probably meant we would have gone on to win comfortably and he would have been a genius. It was wasted opportunity but not the end of the world. Trouble is that us as supporters are now getting greedy. First 10 matches we were calling for Dyche back, next 10 matches we are calling Zola a god, now we are back to saying he doesn't know what he's doing, yet we are in fourth place challenging for an automatic promotion spot straight after Christmas - people need to have a reality check and say well so far so good - didn't think we would be doing this well.

I find Eastsussexhornet's comment that he is "fast losing faith" with GFZ amazing, and to then go on and say that "we may have only got this far despite him than because...." equally incredible. This is the sort of attitude you get with multi-billionaire Premier League owners using the club as an ego trip and personal toy - sacking the manager after a brief poor run. My God, we've just lost one game for all sorts of reasons, not because GFZ has suddenly become a bad manager.

Lets get behind Gianfranco because I reckon he is doing a great job and he is backed by the best owners we have had for many, many years. They are real football people and I can't remember being so positive about my team since the 1980's. If they were unhappy with GFZ it would be for very strong reasons and we should trust them to do the right thing for the long term good of the club. I think that so far so very good.
Excellent post ! Eastsussex has been exposed for what he is and I sense he is begining to realize the error of his ways and offering an olive branch !

If Zola did make a mistake with so many changes, he would not own up to it. it would affect the confidence of the players he did pick. It's a big squad and he has to try to keep all players happy or did he play them to put them in the shop window? I also admit I did have a rant about all the changes but that's human nature, the same for the players who thought it might have been an easy game. let's forget it now and move on.

A lot of people are off track here ... the team was strong enough and should have gone in front. That we didn't is the main reason we couldn't play to our strengths and a somewhat unfortunate wind-assisted goal just compounded it.
Few teams will set out with two banks of five against us but when they do it's up to us to score first to bring them out.

Was at the game on Tuesday but due to business travel etc all week, have failed to post any thoughts since, until now.
Was seriously miffed to see so many changes as i am a believer that "if it aint bust, don't fix it". Despite what he says, I think GFZ knows he dropped a major bollock and if it serves as a reality check then I'll happily wave goodbye to the three points, although I still think he was wrong and we should have been sat in second place piling the pressure on the rest. I will not spew the bile that some idiots have have given Zola as he has got it 90%+ right to date but I will question his ambitions if he does it again - I hope he can swallow his pride and revert the six on saturday. Lets get two goals up before we consider resting our strongest players. Tickets on the doormat when I got home and hotel booked so midday in the red and yellow tomorrow followed, hopefully, by another three points. God I love my club!

Does Zola think the fans are fools? I doubt it, but I think that some of the fans that come on here are. Moaning minnies or what? We're 4th for God sake and playing some of the best football we've ever played, get off GFZs back. I'm starting to believe that a lot of the comments on here are actually from L*t*n fans trying to stir up the hornets nest.

A little offf topic....What I however do know that the atmosphere at Vic Road in Jan 1999 against Sunderland is nothing like it is now.(Watford fans moved to the Rookery that year at home to Grimsby in May.) Move the WFC fans to the Vic End and split the Rookery. Watford fans must get their entry via Vicarage Road and the away fans must get in through Wiggenhall Road and the allotments.
