Watford are a strange club. Every time I look at their team, they have a new manager and random imports brought in from their sister clubs. They are as chaotic as Forest except, with, er, multiple promotions to show for it.
They'll probably line with Bachmann, Femenia, Troost-Ekong, Sierralta and Masina at the back. They haven't really signed any defenders other than Rose, who might start ahead of Masina.
Yeah, they are exactly like a higher level version of Forest. Even Danny Rose is exactly the sort of player we'd have signed if we were a division higher - Used to be quite good but always a bit over-rated, increasingly injury prone, and barely seen for two years.
Thanks. I'll go 343 with Bachmann, Femenia, Troost-Ekong, Sierralta....
Cathcart and Kabalese barely played in the second half of last season, I'm surprised they were involved. Sorry AV 😬😳
No worries, I quite like Kabasele but I'd never have gone with Cathcart anyway, I thought he was well out of favour these days. I'll give them another two games to see if anything changes. I doubt I'm going to miss many clean sheet points....
Arsenal have done some pretty bad transfer business haven't they? They've been pretty useless for a long time now but even worse than normal.
For the around the same amount West Ham spent on Coufal, Soucek, Benrahma, Zouma, and Vlasic or Leicester spent on Fafana, Castagne, Tielemans, Maddison, and Soyuncu the Arse have got a supposed creative midfielder who last year was involved in about four goals, a keeper to sit on the bench, a second back up left back, and Brighton's third best centre half. Oh dear.
Normally I'd be wanting Watford to go down as they're quite an annoying team but I like Ranieri and I've got that team in a mini-league with a Watford defence (still waiting for a first clean sheet but above the Norwich and Newcastle teams) so I'm a bit torn. Can't see Ranieri lasting the season really. They seem to have a default position of 'sack the manager' when even slightly threatened with relegation and I assume they'll be in the bottom third even if he does quite well so it seems inevitable.
I guess that's what Forest would have been if our recruitment had been better. A lot better.
