Gianfranco Zola's Watford need extra-time to beat Wycombe Wanderers in Capital One Cup

First published in Sport by

Watford needed extra-time to progress in the Capital One Cup against Wycombe Wanderers but Chris Iwelumo’s goal ensured Gianfranco Zola’s first competitive game in charge of the club ended in victory.

It was a poor spectacle for much of the contest as neither side created much of note and the game was settled in the 110th minute when Matej Vydra, whose performance was a highlight, set up Iwelumo to bundle home.

Three of Watford’s summer signings started the game - Manuel Almunia, Almen Abdi and Vydra - and Ikechi Anya was on the bench.

Fellow signings Daniel Pudil, Fitz Hall and Steve Leo Beleck joined the lengthy list of players absent due to injury or fitness issues and as expected, Daniel Geijo was also unavailable.

A young Hornets side impressed at Gillingham on Tuesday night but Vydra was the only one who retained his place.

It was good work from the young forward on the left which led to Watford’s first chance two minutes into the contest. He released Dickinson and at the second attempt, the full back picked out Jonathan Hogg, who headed narrowly wide under pressure.

But Wycombe went even closer minutes later when Almunia parried what should have been a routine save from Joel Grant’s long-range shot into the path of Richard Logan. The goalkeeper did well to get a hand to Logan’s follow-up and the ball looped up and trickled narrowly wide.

The Wycombe striker headed the ball into the net from the resulting corner but the whistle had already blown.

After a frantic start to the contest, very little happened for the rest of the half. Watford were not moving the ball as freely and there was very little attacking intent.

Ironically, Watford’s next chance came after a 40-yard diagonal ball from Eustace, which picked out the run of Garner. But the striker was always going to struggle to test Nikki Bull with his backwards header.

There was one last shot at goal for Watford before the break when Mark Yeates turned his man well on the edge of the area but his shot was tame and easily saved by Bull.

The Hornets could have gone into the break behind when Anthony Stewart beat Lloyd Doyley to a header from Matt Spring’s free kick with the final attack of the half but the ball went wide of the far post.

Watford started the second half much brighter and had two half-chances early on. First, good work from Vydra saw the forward lay the ball back to Garner but he mishit the ball as he went to strike. Then Yeates swung in a cross-shot which almost caught out Bull and went narrowly wide of the far post.

It was still a largely uneventful game and Wycombe’s management team would certainly have been the happier.

Garner forced a routine save from Bull, Spring had an effort from distance deflected over and Logan shot well wide. But apart from those efforts, there was little to keep the 5,343 spectators entertained.

Watford should have gone behind with just over a quarter of an hour remaining when Logan beat the offside trap and ran clean through but a poor touch, and then even worse finish, saw him hit the side netting from eight yards out.

The home side had to wait until the 78th minute for their next chance when Abdi headed wide Yeates’ corner.

Moments later Wycombe went close again when Stuart Lewis had Almunia scrambling with a 30-yard strike which went just wide.

With minutes of normal time left, both sides had decent chances to win it.

Wycombe should have had a one-on-one opportunity when Wood had the chance to slip Spring through but he under-cooked the pass and a challenge was made, although the rebound needed to be tipped over by Almunia.

Then deep into injury time, Yeates had a free kick deflected over the bar and then Wycombe’s goalkeeper had to make a sliding challenge at the resulting corner.

Watford were the first to have a chance in extra-time as Abdi and Vydra linked up well on the left, with the latter having a shot blocked and then Chris Iwelumo flicking wide.

The breakthrough finally came in the 110th minute when Abdi released Vydra on the right and he chipped the ball over the on-rushing Bull and despite slipping over in the process, Iwelumo bundled home from three yards out.

The Hornets could have added a second soon after when a cross-field pass from Hogg led to Forsyth and Yeates doubling up on the left. Yeates picked out Abdi unmarked on the edge of the area but the ball bounced up and the midfielder snatched at the shot and it sailed over.

Wycombe continued to search for the winner and felt they should have had a penalty when Grant Basey’s cross may have hit the arm of Hogg, but it wasn’t given and Watford progressed to the next round.

That was truly painful, although to be fair the first round of the League Cup is generally dire. Remember Kidderminster, Accrington, Cheltenham and......some others I really have managed to forget! But if Zola turns Garner into a player then he really will make a manager. Meanwhile in an encounter devoid of humour, the only time we laughed was when they shuffled off, heads down, at half-time.......with a giant Dychey glaring at them from the Sky Sports studio!

Was really looking forward to the game today, but it was pretty dire for the most part. Bright spots definitely Vydra and Abdi and thought Forsyth did well at left back. Apart from that poor and disjointed and clearly is going to take time. Crossing by Yeates was awful and I just cannot see how he can stay in the team? I guess it would have been Sean Murray on the right had he been available though. Rumour is that Garner is lethal in training, but let's face it when it's for real he just doesn't seem to produce. Definitely need to ship a few out and hope the rest of the new Guys are as good as Vydra and Abdi and that they get fit soon! Think Franco has to make some bold decisions before Palace...onwards and upwards!

All those that complain if we dont win every game 3 nil, or moan cos the players havent gelled yet, or say zola's style '...isnt suited to the championship.', GO AWAY!! You havent got a clue. This club is headed in the right direction, on and off the pitch, but it will take time.

Today was pretty dull,but Vydra looks sharp and lively, Almunia looks solid and we are starting to try and keep the ball. All positives, all things we have been complaining about the whole of last season.

Give the team a chance.

A lot of you couldn't wait to come on and slate yet gave Dyche all the time he needed . I suppose this is because he adhered to your small minded mentality of a hybrid rugby style along with the fact he was a labouring centre back.
Well I think Zola is blending his new signings in gently, as he's aware that too many changes at once would not work.
Now as you lot preached to me last year, give the man a chance

A1derek I was just thinking that Forsyth did well at left back, didn't we gear before that was actually his best position?

Garner useless.

Yeates was poor. All of Dickinson's passes were behind the man. Hogg very sloppy with possession (probably the worst I have seen him play). Some very cringe-worthy moments from Taylor in the 1st half and Nosworthy from the 2nd onwards. Abdi not hugely impressive but definitely got more into the game towards the end. Almunia and Vydra look like they could be inspired signings. Only won because Wycombe got tired but at least we know we're reasonably fit.

Doyley-you can't even think of playing him in a team playing passing football.
Dickenson-pretty poor all round.
Nosworthy-went to sleep from the 2nd half onwards.
Taylor-didn't seem match fit.
Eustace-pretty anonymous.
Hogg-not good.
Yeates-couldn't cross the road.
Abdi-finding his feet.
Vydra-was ok,but nowhere as effective as at Gillingham.

Subs:
Hodson-poor,I thought he played well at gillingham mid week.
Forsyth-ok,but other players dont seem to want to pass to him.
Iwelumo-did his best to miss his goal,he really is not a professional footballer in my opinion.

The youngsters played well 1st half at Gillingham,playing a short passing game,but I think this style of play is beyond most of our senior players.
Lets hope the Zola revolution starts soon,or are we looking at another Vialli nightmare.

Vydra lookd full of promise - Abdi got better as the game went on & can clearly play.
Yeates poor
Garner poor
defence missed Mapps
Hogg & Eustace - back to periods of last season when seem t play better when only one in the team
Murray will make a difference
For me the 4-3-3 didn't work especially against WW 5 in midfield where Springy run the show - Joel Grant looked good first half too.
Forsyth may provide some width & height but I'm not sure about his ability to tackle a fish suuper so I dont see him in a defensive role.
Early days - If Vydra played better at Gillingham he had some game - I agee with the "young Helgusson" comment.

Agreed that he caught more than Loach but that isn't hard when you only need to catch one? Almunia was hardly tested today and when he was he crumbled by spilling that simple shot and luckily we didn't concede from it. I can see him being one of those keepers who once we concede will be down in the dumps, from what i saw today the Arsenal fans were right about him being a spill king!

PS Almunia caught more corners today than Loach did in his wfc career, looked a very steady decent Keeper.[/p][/quote]Agreed that he caught more than Loach but that isn't hard when you only need to catch one? Almunia was hardly tested today and when he was he crumbled by spilling that simple shot and luckily we didn't concede from it. I can see him being one of those keepers who once we concede will be down in the dumps, from what i saw today the Arsenal fans were right about him being a spill king! mrman2012

The worst players were Dyches legacy, but the real point is, Zolas been in situ for one month and we have lost one game to a nigh full strength Spurs. Compare this to last season when our ore season was dreadful. Difference is Zola is bringing in better players
Just wish we could give him better fans, for it's they who are the real weak link in our club

For what it's worth, I thought Almunia was excellent. Really steady with good, quick, accurate distribution. He instilled confidence in the back line and also made a terrific save in the first few minutes to keep it goalless. I honestly can't imagine what 'Loach moments' you mean.

Weak punches and goal kicks to the opposition spring to mind.If Doyley,Dickenson,Nos and Taylor were playing confidently today we may well have problems when they are not.

some of you clowns are unbelievable, ok today was not great, but that is hardly the same team that will start at Palace next week, Zola is no fool so do not expect to see the likes of Yeates & Garner in a Watford shirt again, there will be at least 4 changes to that line-up with more new faces to come, Almunia, Eustace & Forsyth were the positives today, the negative was that it cost my youngest son £1 to get in & he wants a refund!!

If someone perceives that the glass is half full and they then simply impose that on everyone else with the cry, "be positive", they do themselves, the situation and others no favours.
I am far from Anti-Watford,I support the Club,players come and go,I feel I am justified as a lifetime supporter to comment on anything, positive or negative.I accept everyone has their own opinion,but I find that people take offence when I voice mine.
I have been called a mug for the crime of living in Milton Keynes,and told to watch Luton because i was underwhelmed by our new goalkeeper.
I really wish I could be a real Watford fan like most of you,always finding positives,cheering every ex player that turns up,and raises their game.Good old Doyley,Watford through and through,the fact that no-one ever came in for him has nothing to do with it.I'm just a grumpy old geezer who the club can do without,my negative vibes are putting a dampener on that famous Vicarage Road roar.

Those on here posting negativity either have not got a clue what you are talking about or just cannot see the big picture.

We not only have had a change of ownership, a new manager and 90% of the coaching staff, lost our player of the season, integrating 7 new players into the squad and most importantly totally changing the formation and style of football that we are playing and you actually expect us to be the finished article on day 1 in front of 5000 in the Micky Mouse cup, unreal!!!

Our support if that is what some of you call it is perthetic.

Considering GFZ has stated that he still expects to bring in another one or two, and with several of the new arrivals expected to be up to speed with fitness shortly, I will be surprised if several of the starting line up today are nothing more than back up squad players this season at best.

Our ball retention, awareness and one and two touch passing is already there to see, admittedly pushing this into the final third is still work in progress but will gel over the coming weeks.

Impressed with ALL of the the new arrivals seen to date and if any criticism at all it would be at the feet of some of the players that remain from last season who if they were to be totally honest are probably not up to the GFZ project and will be departing shortly.

So if you are expecting nothing but perfection you have jumped on the old bandwagon a little too soon, would suggest you hold off for a season ticket unit we have secured our place in the Prem.

Vydra was good, reminded me a bit of Nordin Wooter. Could have been more productive over the course of the match although he was involved in the goal. I actually thought Forsyth was good when he had the ball but he seemed to drift in and out of the game. Overall the game was of course dire and we could have lost it a couple of times but I suppose it's early days and if we win when we're crap then we're doing something right (not sure what that is yet but it might be the passing thing).

I really do not know what all the fuss is about. I went to Zola's first match in charge against Borehamwood and was impressed at how much he had done to improve our distribution. I went to the Spurs match where we outplayed them - I would be far more worried being a Spurs supporter. Today was a mare but it was only our first competitive match - we played badly and came a way with a win but how Iwelumo tripped over the ball and it still went in to the net beats me. We are just lacking pace up front / on the wings and once that is sorted we will be a force to be reckoned with. Don't expect Garner or Iwelumo to feature much going forward. We have two strikers and a winger that we have yet to see and Pudil looks real class - shame he was not fit today. Almunia will definitely gain us points over the course of a season. Not perfect today but the important thing is he did not let in any goals.

Game was poor and I was stuck in front of some tool in the rookery who kept effing and jeffing in the first half.

Zola is obviously trying out all those still under contract to see if anything can be salvaged.

It's clear that many of the starters today are struggling to adapt to tight passing football, but let's see how they perform in the real league before passing judgement.

Today was irrelevant as first round league cup matches are always as entertaining as watching paint dry.

Taylor-didn't seem match fit.
Eustace-pretty anonymous.
Hogg-not good.
Yeates-couldn't cross the road.
Abdi-finding his feet.
Vydra-was ok,but nowhere as effective as at Gillingham.
Garner-waste of space,bin him.
Subs:
Hodson-poor,I thought he played well at gillingham mid week.
Forsyth-ok,but other players dont seem to want to pass to him.
Iwelumo-did his best to miss his goal,he really is not a professional footballer in my opinion.

The youngsters played well 1st half at Gillingham,playing a short passing game,but I think this style of play is beyond most of our senior players.
Lets hope the Zola revolution starts soon,or are we looking at another Vialli nightmare.
wow how negative can you get

We not only have had a change of ownership, a new manager and 90% of the coaching staff, lost our player of the season, integrating 7 new players into the squad and most importantly totally changing the formation and style of football that we are playing and you actually expect us to be the finished article on day 1 in front of 5000 in the Micky Mouse cup, unreal!!!

Our support if that is what some of you call it is perthetic.

Considering GFZ has stated that he still expects to bring in another one or two, and with several of the new arrivals expected to be up to speed with fitness shortly, I will be surprised if several of the starting line up today are nothing more than back up squad players this season at best.

Our ball retention, awareness and one and two touch passing is already there to see, admittedly pushing this into the final third is still work in progress but will gel over the coming weeks.

Impressed with ALL of the the new arrivals seen to date and if any criticism at all it would be at the feet of some of the players that remain from last season who if they were to be totally honest are probably not up to the GFZ project and will be departing shortly.

So if you are expecting nothing but perfection you have jumped on the old bandwagon a little too soon, would suggest you hold off for a season ticket unit we have secured our place in the Prem.

Now as you lot preached to me last year, give the man a chance
I quite agree give Zola a chance, this was not the type of game to forecast the season on especially cup games and whilst the play was not pretty to watch and included a number of players who probably will not be part of the first team line up in proper Championship games, it does enable Zola to see what he has in real terms for competative games and obviously he saw he needs to make some serious changes. The new signing to be announced is a striker and he is after another midfield player apparently so he can finally bench warm or pass on Chris and hopefully we can start to gel and finish. Do not expect a win at Palace our boogey team although with Ambrose now gone who knows. Also lutondown no need for a dig at Dyche he may not have got us playing pretty football but he gave us hope and results with it, not sure how that makes people small minded, not giving managers a chance from the beginning or a few games in only is small minded though, remind you of anyone!

Hey if you read my last sentence I think my referral to me is apparent. And I was pretty quick in saying I was wrong on Dyche. He was the right man for the time, but not to take us forward IMO.
I think in order for Zolas style to work he needs to rid himself of the perennial toe punters and for the fans to actually back their team.
After 90 minutes I heard booing in the upper rous ( though far more clapped) WTF is that about? That is not the behaviour of any true fan.
I really think its time Watford fans had a look at themselves, and see the nasty insidious side that has crept into our support. And no Corby, I might not of liked a managers style, but never have I booed my team.

Best you stay in your plastic Town and look at them cows you Mug! PS Almunia caught more corners today than Loach did in his wfc career, looked a very steady decent Keeper.
Whats where I live got to do with my opinion of our current goalkeeper.I was born in Watford and followed my team for nearly 40 years,I've seen my share of solid keepers at Watford,but I suppose as I now live in Milton Keynes I must bow to your superior intellect and football knowledge.Thanks for putting me right.
I think your missing the point that old Buckles is tryin to make... because from where himself, myself and Lutondown where sat Almunia ws excelent. He came for every cross and caught ny on all of them! he was not affraid to get in amognst a crowd and he is the most vocal GK i can remember. Regarding the punches granted they wernt the best BUUUUT id rather have a GK who made a bad punch than a GK ie Loach who was invisable or went missing anytime a ball went in the air and were he could of got clattered!! I think after watching Almunia today he will certainly save us a fair few points this season, rather than costing us a fair few!

Chris the Vic says...

Without doubt GFZ has a brilliant football brain, voted the best player ever at Chelsea goes some way to support it. But why does he hide it, just as the clb hide any signings for days on end before confiming the signing.

Also without doubt we have to be fair
to him, give him time to settle and assess just as some of us did with Sean, so patience is the key word.

However we struggle to score against Wycombe and our two substitutions in normal time are adjustments at full back. Garner plys for 90 inutes and continues to be totally ineffective against Wycombe as he was against Spurs and has played more matches than most. We are told Iwelumo is unlikely to suit GFZ's plans but as a sub he has twice shown that he creates some discomfort unlike the guy he replaced. Forsyth and Yeates did their usual and produced little.

On the plus side I thoughthe new signings Vydra, Alumnia and Abdi played well and if others once fit contribute as much we will be more than ok.

Overall a dreadful game, whch may dent the confidence but help the fitness levels.

We are told Iwelumo is unlikely to suit GFZ's plans but as a sub he has twice shown that he creates some discomfort unlike the guy he replaced. Forsyth and Yeates did their usual and produced little. On the plus side I thoughthe new signings Vydra, Alumnia and Abdi played well and if others once fit contribute as much we will be more than ok. Overall a dreadful game, whch may dent the confidence but help the fitness levels. Chris the Vic

I felt Wycombe played there socks off whilst we had a stroll ,did not look up for it and I think a defeat would of been a wake up call, I understand a couple who played today already have been told they are off, so it was a shop window for them , palace will be the first real test, thought Almunia did well , as did the new boys , garner looks like he could do a job but sadly today was not for him, a wins a win , well done to the away fans and Harry the Hornet for the entertainment .

Well I think Zola is blending his new signings in gently, as he's aware that too many changes at once would not work.
Now as you lot preached to me last year, give the man a chance
I quite agree give Zola a chance, this was not the type of game to forecast the season on especially cup games and whilst the play was not pretty to watch and included a number of players who probably will not be part of the first team line up in proper Championship games, it does enable Zola to see what he has in real terms for competative games and obviously he saw he needs to make some serious changes. The new signing to be announced is a striker and he is after another midfield player apparently so he can finally bench warm or pass on Chris and hopefully we can start to gel and finish. Do not expect a win at Palace our boogey team although with Ambrose now gone who knows. Also lutondown no need for a dig at Dyche he may not have got us playing pretty football but he gave us hope and results with it, not sure how that makes people small minded, not giving managers a chance from the beginning or a few games in only is small minded though, remind you of anyone!
Hello Corbindallas. My name is Chris Bottom, i hide from no one this is my real name. Its nice to finally get a chance to speak. Your post is very hypercritcal. You state to Lutondown that there is no need to dig at Dyche, yet you are Digging at Lutondown for no apparent reason other than he has an opinion. Having watched the game with Lutondown i would like to point out he is a gentleman and a bigger Watford fan you will struggle to find. We were both impressed with the style of play and in awe of the newbies as they really were a cut above the rest. So we can start the season afresh as the team haave done id like to say stop with petty little digs and move on.

On the plus side I thoughthe new signings Vydra, Alumnia and Abdi played well and if others once fit contribute as much we will be more than ok.

Overall a dreadful game, whch may dent the confidence but help the fitness levels.
The adjusment substitutions for bothe full backs were made because Doyley has only played 60 mins or so in pre season and so fitness was the issue and Dickinson went off with a hamstring.

Firstly I was at the game before that is thrown at me.Almunia was solid and a vast improvement who will clearly save us points. Vydra was class and with him on the left, Murray on the right and Geijo up top we will have one of the strongest if not the strongest frontline in the division. Abdi played well and always had an extra second on the ball. Although the match was not the best it was clear for all to see (so i thought) that Zolas ethos is already starting to take place. Lets not forget that he has only been here a month and these things take time. If you add Pudil, Murray and Geijo to todays team you have an incredibly strong group of players who 2 months ago we could never of dreamt of seeing! I also dont think the extra half an hour was such a bad thing as it gets the fitness up another notch and gives them another half of game time with a new style of play. I was dismayed that parts of the Rookery and Rous thought it was acceptable to boo at 90 minutes. Your ticket cost a tenner so your hardley out of pocket and you got to witness a work in progress made up of last years hoofers! God knows what some of the new players must of made of the atmosphere as it was quite bar booin an moanin! Lets just hope that thoes who booed and want their season ticket money back dont bother commin again! all in all i was pleased with the style that is starting to come together and with 3 or 4 aditions were have a team we can go places with!!

I don't like the title of this article: Watford need extra time to see off Wycombe. It's no big deal that a team below our division should hold out against us in a cup game. Anyway, we won.

Patience is the word. No overnight transformation. Still can't believe people booed.

That should be the title:

Just give them all a fair chance you total ar$es, if it's still not working come October THEN we can moan.
Realistically, in my humble opinion, finishing the season with 65 points and 10th place would be an achievement considering all the changes.

Thanks for kind words Chris, but let's stop all this gentleman stuff, last time I looked i had two horns sprouting and a reddish tinge to my skin, and we won't talk about my tail!
It was good to sit with true Watford fans, who though was witnessing a transitional team in a transitional period, and willing to give a true football genius the time he needs to build a new Watford.
Ive been a fan for more years than I care to remember, and for large chunks of that we have had this purveyor of awful football labelled onto us. Well I saw enough yesterday to be convinced that when we get the final third right, and the dross of last year replaced we will succeed.
Nothing I've seen yet will dampen my optimism for our future.

NO it didn't, be patient give the system a chance and get behind the boys..... either that or stay at home, booing after the first game is poor, what are the boys on loan going to think after winning and still getting booed.

Today was pretty dull,but Vydra looks sharp and lively, Almunia looks solid and we are starting to try and keep the ball. All positives, all things we have been complaining about the whole of last season.

Give the team a chance.
Agree - One game in, in the league cup, and the doom merchants are already out in force. You lot are boring and predictable. Did we not win? Is the league not more important than this cup? Have patience hornets fans... Rome was not built in extra time.

People are getting too impatient. Basically yesterday we were playing with 10 men as Garner is totally out of his depth and must be the worst "striker" to play in the first team for 20 years. We might as well play the Spain way without a striker.

Did not make the game yesterday as I went to watch Southampton v udinese with some saints fans. The result was 4 nil to udinese who played saints off the park.. My saints mates were of the opinion is that is the pozzos brand then they would love to see that every week. I was one smug git last night as I take a fair bit of ribbing working with these guys. I for one after watching years of dross at the vic with some stand out results thrown in to help keep the faith am more than willing to give these guys and their managerial choice a chance.
Their are 9 new additions some who are moving to a new country and culture who are supposed to hit the ground running to appease the negative minority, they will take time to adjust and I am sure Zola noes this from his own experience.. They have said it is a project not a revolution. So FFs give it some time.
One last thing I was not Sean dyches biggest fan, having watched him on Ssn yesterday big respect to the man. No hint of bitterness or resentment, total pro who if successful over a longer period would have moved on, as will Zola one day. So let's get real hey. Ho.

Come on guys, what do u honestly expect for the first game of the season? Zola is changing our style of play and that will take time! Although there are a few fans who like direct football on here, i honestly believe the majority would like us to play more like Swansea eventually! unfortunately that takes time and when the ball doesn't get to the front line people get frustrated, just chill out and enjoy the transformation! and whilst your at it enjoy the fact we are financially stable.. We will be lucky to be around mid table this season IMO (and I am happy because we have the right structure in place) !!

I played against a lot of very good players at Sunday League level, and often asked; Why are you not playing at a higher level? The same reply always followed, not good enough. My point is, that to play at Championship level, these guys must be immensely fit and talented but some may not have broad shoulders like bigger stars, who can cope better with all the pressure of being in the spotlight. These players read the comments and hear the booing. So like many others before have said, Get a grip and support the players.And I may be alone on this next one but If Garner is given some support, I believe he is technically good enough to be a good player for us.

So before everyone goes bonkers again! Let's just take a step back. Disappointing yes. Things to learn from yes. But remember the first 10 games of last season. 4 losses 4 draws 2 wins. Spect there were a few comments calling for "Dyce out". "Why doesn't he play the youngsters like malky did in 2010". - We will get better. Judge GZ on his first 10 league games.

You must of been that gent with the white stick. Almunia did not put a foot wrong.
Stop comparing Zola to Vialli, the only thing they have in common is they are both Italian
And it amazes me how any Watford team ever lift theirselves with our pathetic support
Exactly, Whats the point of supporting a team and then moan at every single player on the pitch, We still won the game, isn't that the most important factor or is playing the "right" way the most important. What's the point of keeping the ball for most of the game and doing nothing with it, there is no right way to play football. If you wanna see the passing game i suggest you go and support arsenal, its obviously done a lot of wonders there the last 7 odd years... As long as we win the game then it doesn't matter to me.

Hodson-poor,I thought he played well at gillingham mid week.
Forsyth-ok,but other players dont seem to want to pass to him.
Iwelumo-did his best to miss his goal,he really is not a professional footballer in my opinion.

The youngsters played well 1st half at Gillingham,playing a short passing game,but I think this style of play is beyond most of our senior players.
Lets hope the Zola revolution starts soon,or are we looking at another Vialli nightmare.
You must of been that gent with the white stick. Almunia did not put a foot wrong.
Stop comparing Zola to Vialli, the only thing they have in common is they are both Italian
And it amazes me how any Watford team ever lift theirselves with our pathetic support
Exactly, Whats the point of supporting a team and then moan at every single player on the pitch, We still won the game, isn't that the most important factor or is playing the "right" way the most important. What's the point of keeping the ball for most of the game and doing nothing with it, there is no right way to play football. If you wanna see the passing game i suggest you go and support arsenal, its obviously done a lot of wonders there the last 7 odd years... As long as we win the game then it doesn't matter to me.
Difficult to see your point really, you seem to be saying conflicting things. Anyway most people do want to see good football and thankfully we don't have to support Arsenal. Our very own Watford are playing it. Slightly daft comment.

well i didnt hear any booing..was in upper rous didnt hear anything to be honest. Rookery boys will need to make afew new songs asap and start to sing as it was a library yesterday. Funny to see the 2 posters who i have a bet with havnt been on here at all to say anything...Keeper is class to what we have had to put up with....as i said on ealier comment vydra looks like a young helguson and abdi will get better and better ... if these other new players are as good we are in for a treat this year. Can anyone tell me how Yeats and Garner can possible expect to play this year ?? Please dont give me this tosh about style of play will make them better...if we want a greedy winger who wont pass and just wants to shoot all the time and a forward who falls over whenever his back to goal and runs all 90 mins for balls he is never gonna win and when he does he does nothing with it and has the scoring rate of lloyd doyley. I guess we will see a lot of moves over next 10 days

Just remember when you do come back to visit and you have recovered from the shock of the destruction of our once lovely town, let us know and meet up for a game with myself Buck and Chris Bottom ( we all met yesterday for the first time).

It really makes me laugh, all those on hear who a saying that Zola must be given time are the same ones who were all over Dyche like a rash at the start of last season saying he should be sacked and all those that are having a go a Zola are the same people who last season were saying that Dyche must be given more time. A bit more consistency please people! The truth is that Dyche needed time to get things right last season and Zola needs to be shown the same patience and respect this season. Too many people on here are trying to point score against each other rather than looking at the bigger picture and trying to be a bit more even handed.

Attended the Open Day today with the kids, first time I have been since I was a teenager myself in the days when they were held at the ground, indeed had my photo taken by polaroid with Gerry Armstrong just after he returned from being one of the stars of the World Cup.

Anyway, just wanted to say how well run it was, the weather helped but all seemed to have a great time. All the players that attended seemed more than happy to be putting something back into the community.

One thing that really gets me though is why would some people feel it is appropriate to dress your kid in a Liverpool kit for the occasion, idiots!!!

I remember the game Jenkins hit his first hat trick as we won 5-1, having been 1 down at half time. Difference being even with so few in the ground at a time that was our lowest ebb, the Rookery still made noise, they had a repertoire of songs ( I was born under a Rookery roof... There's a crack up in the ceiling...etc etc) compared to the inane Yellow and the squeak that comes out when Harry bangs his drum.
We've all got a duty to cheer them on, make some noise, make the Vic a fortress etc etc

Eustace-pretty anonymous. Hogg-not good. Yeates-couldn't cross the road. Abdi-finding his feet. Vydra-was ok,but nowhere as effective as at Gillingham. Garner-waste of space,bin him. Subs: Hodson-poor,I thought he played well at gillingham mid week. Forsyth-ok,but other players dont seem to want to pass to him. Iwelumo-did his best to miss his goal,he really is not a professional footballer in my opinion. The youngsters played well 1st half at Gillingham,playing a short passing game,but I think this style of play is beyond most of our senior players. Lets hope the Zola revolution starts soon,or are we looking at another Vialli nightmare.[/p][/quote]You must of been that gent with the white stick. Almunia did not put a foot wrong. Stop comparing Zola to Vialli, the only thing they have in common is they are both Italian And it amazes me how any Watford team ever lift theirselves with our pathetic support[/p][/quote]Pathetic supportis right .. not only the comments on here, but the number in the ground for the match. Here we are at the start of brand new era ... an era which could rival any in our history, with one of the greatest players the English game has ever seen at the helm ... and only 5,000 can be bothered to show up. I remember having a letter published in the WO when a similar apology for a crowd turned out for a night game v Scunthorpe ... and that was in the fourth division during the Keen era. Surely close to a sellout is required for our first championship match.GET BEHIND OUR BOYS!![/p][/quote]I remember the game Jenkins hit his first hat trick as we won 5-1, having been 1 down at half time. Difference being even with so few in the ground at a time that was our lowest ebb, the Rookery still made noise, they had a repertoire of songs ( I was born under a Rookery roof... There's a crack up in the ceiling...etc etc) compared to the inane Yellow and the squeak that comes out when Harry bangs his drum. We've all got a duty to cheer them on, make some noise, make the Vic a fortress etc etc And those who booed yesterday, hang your heads low, you numptys lutondown

Nobody thought it would be easy making the huge transition the club is undergoing just now. I am certain that Gianfranco is giving all the squad a fair chance to see if they have the skills for playing a passing game. Obviously some of his inherited squad are lacking.
The manager is not a miracle worker and think we give him a fair chance.After all he has only been in charge for one month.
I have no doubt in him as our leader , we are very lucky to have got him.
Trust me if players under perform then they will be replaced.To play poorly and win was just one of a few bonuses on saturday. Vydra excellent,Almunia steady. Two positives out of the game..Hint, hint doubters both new signings.

Chris the Vic says...

Oddly enough Lockerbie when GT took over it went very smoothly, he took the squad added a few players at the start, Sam ellis, ian Bolton
dennis booth and ??. we won first game away, lost at home to york and kept winning or drawing, but that was a different time and a different league.

What we do know is Alumnia looks very good, Vydra and Abdi will get there so the first three signings we have seen are all looking good. So well done Zola.

I am sure others will come up to scratch and with the hard core of players from last year, Hogg,Eustace, Bauben, Taylor, Nosworthy and Murray we will be a tough team to beat.
others have to go out on loan including two or three of the current starters who came in last year, but we will be OK.

What is alarming is the lack of fitness of some of the new boys, they should have played more in pre season but for whatever reason have not been able to. hopefully they will soon be up and running and contributing.

For those who praise the style of football and say it will happen up front soon, it will not whilst we are led by Garner. He is a lightweight who does not hold the ball up well, has difficulty scoring this season like last year, but i am equally sure GFZ has a plan for that problem and players to fill the gap already here or about to arrive.
As for booing it happens, I really dislike it during the game but at the end if they have not tried give them hell, but this week the game was terrible but I think most tried. Hogg at times played like a target man and was not at his best but 110% effort and well done to Wycombe for having a real go

Just seen your contribution, if I am one of the two you re referring to then I would point out that I made my comments on Sat at 9.48, 24 hours or so earlier than you.
Incidentally you made the brave stand alone statement that you would make a donation of £100 if Garner scored 5 goals or more.
I am hopeful that the lad could become a decent player but I am definitely not confident enough to wager £5 let
alone £100. Let's face it for £100 I
could probably buy him!!

Anyway, just wanted to say how well run it was, the weather helped but all seemed to have a great time. All the players that attended seemed more than happy to be putting something back into the community.

One thing that really gets me though is why would some people feel it is appropriate to dress your kid in a Liverpool kit for the occasion, idiots!!!
Should have been kicked up the arse and sent packing? idiots indeed!!!
people like that shouldn't have kids. They are serving our world and football club as well as people who boo at a pre-season cup game. There should be a special camp for these offenders

Glad first match was a micky mouse cup match.. I think it has helped to blow away any cobwebs or fans thinking we are better than we are at the moment.. This first season will be not much different to the last one.. We (the fans) need to stop thinking we are world beaters.. We are not.. Maybe in the future we can be.. We all hope that but stop getting above our station.. There are a lot of great teams in this league this season.. Most spending real money.. Take stock and don't be so hard on the players or manager.... COYH.....
