Watford fans comments on Newcastle fans, NUFC team and Steve Bruce – Very amusing

Watford fans watched on as their club, along with Norwich, made an instant return to the Premier League.

Norwich winning the Championship title, Watford were runners up, whilst Brentford finally came up through the play-offs.

Things turned on their head though since promotion in May, as after five games of this Premier League season, Norwich find themselves rock bottom without a point, Watford on six points, whilst with the help of what looks a very good summer window, Brentford are looking very decent on eight points.

Brentford eighth in the table, Watford eleventh, Norwich twentieth, with Newcastle United fitting in on only two points in eighteenth spot.

Ahead of Saturday’s match, some very amusing and illuminating comments from the Watford fans, covering the NUFC team, Newcastle fanbase and a number of individuals, including Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton and…Steve Bruce.

I can’t say I agree with all of the comments about Newcastle supporters…but as for the Watford fans commenting on Joelinton, ASM, Callum Wilson and especially, Steve Bruce! I can’t argue with any of that below.

Watford fans commenting via their WFC Forums message board:

‘Newcastle are a funny one.

They have one of the most passionate and patient fanbases in England, fill out almost all their allocation in every game be it home or away, and have to contend with the slop that Steve Bruce serves up under the watchful gaze of Mike Ashley.

Most Newcastle fans I have met seem a decent sort and win or lose on the day always want a bit of a banter.

I just hope we can do what is expected of us and pick up another three points.

Only Newcastle player that looks overly threatening is Saint Maximum. Quality player on his day but blows more cold than hot.

If we set up right, come out attacking and press well we should have enough.’

‘Toon Army cliché bingo!’

‘Failed to mention huge bellied, shirtless supporters with man baps out in mid-January.’

‘Cobblers. I interact with a group of over 100 of ’em every day and in my all my many years I have yet to meet a more reactionary, living in the past, entitled yet deluded fanbase. In their natural habitat of ‘The Toon’ they’re frequently a very nasty bunch too.’

‘The Geordies always provide entertainment, although not necessarily on the pitch, so hopefully Saturday can also provide us some entertainment, preferably with us coming out of the game with an important 3 points!’

‘Must win game. Can’t stress that enough.’

‘Realistically, we have to hope chiefly that Callum Wilson remains out, and doesn’t make it back from injury for this fixture.

We might have a chance to exploit the toxicity around Brucey and his boys.’

‘Watford 4-0 Newcastle.’

‘If we can’t beat a side managed by Steve Bruce we may as well just pack up and play a different sport.

We’ve got a very good recent record against Newcastle. Over the last 11 meetings, we’ve won 7 drew 3 lost just the once. In fact our home record against them is pretty impressive. Only losing once since 1991.

This one is another occasion where we should win and I suspect we have to win in order to convince people we have a chance of survival.

Newcastle will be another pointer, as I see them in the bottom three (or very close to it). We just have to beat a side like this if we are going to stay up.

I see the strugglers being Norwich, Burnley, Newcastle and us.’

‘Player for player, Newcastle aren’t that bad, but they’re managed by probably the worst manager in the league so really they are a team we need to be aiming to finish above.’

‘Double up on Saint Maximum and take it in turns fouling him if he is looking dangerous and I think we win this one.’

‘Things have moved on for the Geordies in the last year or two.

Saturday is the battle to be the tallest pygmy in the land of giants!’

‘Think it’s fairly obvious that if we win this game, we’ll stay up comfortably. If we lose, we’re down.’

‘Joe Willock is in a protective boot.

Wilson injured.

Anything that gets Joelinton on the pitch is a bonus.’

‘Watford 6-0 Newcastle

Crisis meeting called at Bedwetter HQ.’

‘It was a stroke of genius by Mike Ashley to persuade the Toon Army that Joe Linton, a gas fitter from South Shields, was a gifted Brazilian striker.’
