Fair to say no shortage of confidence amongst the Watford fans.
Ahead of the game at St James Park making their (very) confident thoughts known.
Time for NUFC to prove them wrong?
Watford fans comment via their top WFCForums message board:
‘With our squad we should really be smashing teams like this if we’re serious about pushing onto Europe, anything less than a comfortable victory will be embarrassing.
Newcastle 0-4 Watford’
‘I feel a bit sorry for Newcastle really.
They’re like a little nervous black and white stripy gazelle that’s in the sights of our pack of hungry golden lions.
It’s going to be another gloomy night of sunken-shouldered post match interview woe for Melon-head Benitez.
Their only possible salvation from relegation certainty is that Cardiff and Huddersfield are also dire. So there’s only one spot left to fight over and, in the unlikely event of grubby business brute finally stumping up a bit of cash in January, they may possibly give a few end of season worries to Southampton and Fulham.’
‘Newcastle always provide us with 6 points over a season, and I can’t see why this game should be any different, with our first 3 point instalment due on Saturday.
Not sure we’ll smash them, but a comfortable victory should be within our reach.
But a word of caution, as always, if Watford don’t turn up they will lose…..yes even to Newcastle.’
‘Time for the giants to travel to the land of pygmies and come away with the win everyone expects.’
‘They look doomed and Rafa shows all the body language of someone who’s thrown in the towel.
Must win game.
2-1 to NUFC.’
‘One of the 3 certainties in life: death, taxes, and taking 6 points off Newcastle.’
‘The law of averages suggests they must beat us at some point.
Not this time though, 3 nil us.’
‘A few years ago a bunch of us went up there for a mid December game and it was properly freezing. We lost but stayed up there for the Saturday night. I was walking around town with 4 layers of clothes, hat, gloves, the lot, and still cold. The natives don’t even take coats out.
The next morning standing on the platform, just as cold as the night before, there were locals with kids in what I can only describe as “Hertfordshire spring clothing”. They’re a different breed for sure.’
‘The definition of homosexuality in Newcastle is “owns a coat”
‘Owning a coat is when you’re in the closet. Wearing one is when you come out.’
‘Might not all be so cocky on Sat eve. Don’t forget this is Watford & you have to respect Newcastle, Rafa will desperately want to pull a result out the bag & go on a run.
They are fighting for their lives.’
‘Kenedy on his day is unplayable. When he isn’t, he’s the worst player in the league.
All said, I can’t fathom why Newcastle thought selling Dwight Gayle was a good idea. Same as Tom Ince at Huddersfield. These are difficult players to defend against! Sold and replaced with nothing special.
Tighter affair than I’d like, but 1-2 Watford.’
‘I was thinking last week, against Huddersfield, that we haven’t really tonked anyone for a long time. I’m talking 4, 5-0. That’s why I was a bit frustrated last week despite the result, we had enough chances to really wallop them.
This is another chance.’
‘Probably one of my favourite away trips.
Always good to team it with an overnight stay afterwards. They are a bit less eventful in my older years but Newcastle is the scene of one night out where I was so drunk that I tipped a stripper with a £1 coin and told her ‘not to share it…that’s all for you.’
‘I’ve got a soft spot for Newcastle fans ever since they sold out the away end on a cold, wet, miserable midweek cup night. Respect.
I still hope we win. Obviously. However, they are due a (surprise) win against somebody…’
