Blimey lads, only one day and a bit until we play Watford and no one’s made a thread for the game
Anywho, our last game before the international break, already Bit a ropey first two matches. We desperately need three points here. Last season saw one of our strongest away performances all season, winning 3-0;
We should see Ozil and Giroud starting for the first time this season, which will be hugely important in our hope for a result,
Watford are also on one point, were a little unlucky not to earn at least a point in their match against Chelsea. So like us, will be keen to bag important points.
We played 2 very good performances last season v them with Walcott and Welbeck up front, much easier for our midfield to play with them and score goals than a lamppost. Hope for a similar performance again, 2-0
Away fans will be happy that deals are done, will transfer to players (who are probably happy too that we’re actually signing people this year), this will be the one to kick off our season, 1-3 or something.
Fully expect a 2-0 or 3-0 win for us, need to win this badly if not the spirit will go down again. Expect Watford to cause us problems until we tire them out. Have Ozil and Giroud come in, drop Walcott to the bench. Give Ox a shot. Aside from that the team should be the same. I be shocked if Watford beat us.
I definitely hate that facet of the fandom. Because for me this changes nothing, it was never really about the signings, it’s about the process of the signings, and the tactics, and the subs, and the fitness, and the total lack of balls at every hint of adversity, and the hands in the head when we need some leadership, and the out of touch with reality comments to the fans/media…and just everything. I’d fly that fucking banner as long as he’s the manager he’s beyond redemption.
