Watford fans comments – Say they know what to expect from Newcastle United and their supporters
Watford fans could see their team go as high as seventh on Saturday afternoon.
Facing Newcastle United, their general belief appears to be that their only worries today are that their own team will find a way not to win a game that should be an easy three points.
At St James Park the Hornets could have had the game won by half-time, only for Newcastle to ride their luck and score a second-half winner as the visiting players became demoralised after having dominated.
Our reputation goes well before us, as the Watford fans see Newcastle only setting up one way, to try and stop the opposition scoring and hope to find a goal from somewhere/anywhere.
As for us, the Newcastle supporters, apparently we are the ‘biggest bunch of moaners that follow them around.’
I don’t know whether ‘moaners’ is quite the right word, as I have looked up the definition and it says ‘A person given to excessive complaints and crying and whining.’
Yes of course there are fans of other clubs who have their own concerns/issues but I think for Newcastle fans it is the sheer waste of opportunities and a feeling that under Mike Ashley, there isn’t even any interest in trying to bring success to the football club.
Watford fans comment via their top WFC Forums message board:
‘Newcastle are finding that a large fanbase and history means nothing in the era of television money.
They have been unable to utilize what has been a traditional area of breeding English talent with Paul Dummett hardly the epitome of what has been produced in the past, from Bobby Charlton and for all his numerous faults, Paul Gascoigne.
And while we have been blessed with owners who understand football, who would want an odious chav running your club ? We all know who that is.
The Toon are in a real relegation battle despite the best efforts of Benitez (highlights the point about how much is management and how much is money in contributing to a manager’s actual ability take the bald fraud at Abu Dhabi United and let him manage Burnley for instance) with a squad that is mainly of a top Championship level and strikers who barely function aside from Rondon who was rested last night.’
‘I suspect Newcastle will come with a defensive set up and generally do seem to be better on the road because of it, so might be tough to break them down.’
‘Should be a straight forward win. We usually beat Newcastle, and should have won comfortably at their place. I’ve not seen any improvement in them since then.
Sure, they work hard, but are limited. One of the poorest teams in the Premier League, with the biggest bunch of moaners that follow them around.
Watford 3 Newcastle 1.’
‘They only really play Rondon up front really so could probably do with 2 tall central defenders just to keep him out
We will probably have most of the ball and expect to attack a bit.’
‘We shouldn’t be allowed on the same pitch as these giants. We should know our place…#pygmies.’
‘Could easily happen if we don’t get an early goal. Rafa parking the bus and a Perez goal on 67 mins or something.’
‘Not going to be a classic. Newcastle have struggled all season…
They are rather goal shy, and with Holebas, Cathcart and Foster in good form I cannot see them troubling us too much.’
‘This is a very winnable game, we battered them at St James’s Park and you would like to hope that we can’t have such a bad day infront of goal again.’
‘It’ll be a glorious rout with cut throat football as we put them to the sword with flair football. The spray tanned shirtless Geordies crying into their beers on the coach back to Hell a site to behold on MOTD.’
‘3-0 bounce back from the Chelski disappointment.’
‘Think the whole game will be played 30 yards out from their goal with 10 Newcastle players sat in their box , with the very occasional counter attack. Could literately be any score , could see us winning 5:0, could see us losing 0:1
Going with 3:0.’
‘Should be a pi.. easy victory.
Watford 4-0 Newcastle.’
