Arsenal loanee Chu-Young Park expected to return to Watford squad for Birmingham City visit

This Is Local London: Picture: Dave Peters Picture: Dave Peters

Chu-Young Park is expected to return to Watford’s squad for tomorrow night’s match after missing the Leicester City draw through injury.

Fellow new arrival Samba Diakite also missed the weekend trip to the King Power Stadium with a slight calf strain but is unlikely to be fit for the visit of Birmingham City.

Speaking on Saturday evening, Beppe Sannino said: “Park had a little problem with his knee two days ago but it was minor and I expect him to be OK for Tuesday.”

He added: “I don’t think Diakite will be in the squad on Tuesday but I don’t think it will be too long. I hope he will be fit as soon as possible.”

Good to have him on the bench to keep Troy and Fessi on their toes. Their ManU loanee has found form. If we can keep him at bay we should win.

Nice to see Ikpeazu scored 2 v good goals at the w/e. Looks good for the future.

Looking forward to getting back to the Vic Tues. COYH

Was not at the game on Saturday but did see the highlights on FLS and overall I would say that a draw looked a fair result (I had horrible visions of Super Kev getting the winner!) No doubt that conceding so late is a bitter pill especially as it happens so often but it appeared that we were under a pretty intense barrage in the last 15 mins.
I still believe that we can make the play-offs, if we win our games in hand we are only 5 or 6 points off. It is certainly not over yet. If Park, Ranegie and Diakite all prove to be as good as I think they will be then we really will be looking at a pretty impressive squad, especially in midfield!
The next 4 games are huge but I genuinely believe that we should be looking to take at least 10 points from them (thats allowing for a draw at the Riverside) How many fans are going to be making the trip to Yeovil next week? I will be back in the South-West and attending with family- would be great to get a big crowd to get behind the boys as they ruined my Birthday at the Vic in November!
Overall the progress Beppe is making appears to be positive. Lets get behind him! COYH!!!

We have FIVE loanees who joined in January (Toszer, Merkel, Bellerin, Young & Diakite) as well a new permanent signing in Ranegie but only one of them has seen any game time of note and he, so far, has looked like an excellent addition.

And Ranegie, who joined on a FOUR year deal, hasn't had a single minute which is a little odd.

It may sound like I'm moaning but believe me I'm not. I just can't work out why we would loan out potentially very good assets at this level (Bellerin especially comes to mind as we had him on loan before) only for them to get little or no game time?

Surely they were signed with a view to fill a role/deficiency and not as backfill?

And no, I don't mean rip out the guts of the team and put all six in but on Saturday when were up against it surely a strong 6' 5" striker would have been something for the oppoostion to worry about rather than the other way around? Or how was the busy but ineffective Battochio left on the pitch when Merkel is on the bench?

Maybe I am moaning a little.

Why do we take loan players who are unfit or unfit so quickly? Only a person suffering from delusions could think we will make the play offs. We cannot manage a game out and its been like that for years and until that improves we will never go up.

Not sure how much game time Park is going to get, mainly substitute appearances I would guess. I would like to see Ranegie play with Deeney on Tuesday, if only for the last 20 minutes. For all Fessi's ability I still don't see him and Deeney as a paring that's going to fire us to the play off's.

Player policy and team selection is a mystery. We take loan players and don't use them. I hope that there is a master plan somewhere because it sure confuses the hell out of me. The play-offs are a distant dream.

If we get our full squad including loanees fit, we will have a pretty decent squad. We have 18 games in just over 11 weeks to play. In other words we will be playing 2 games per week more often than playing one, the size of the squad then becomes a factor. All these players will be needed to sustain the outside hope of a playoff place. Teams that suffer injuries/ suspensions will become vunerable.

I could see Sannino's logic re Hall. Fitz is never going to be able to play all 18 games left. We need him especially when playing teams with a big lump of striker like the lad Smith at Leeds, so managing his game time will be important.

I thought the team defended the box pretty well v Leicester and restricted the number of clear cut chances, apart from set pieces where I believe we are still vunerable.

Managing the resources available will be the key to us having a good last third (just over) of the season. The size and quality of our squad may yet be a key factor.

Faroani for a start. Bellerin is a better defender than Faroani and is just as good going forward. A lot of goals against us have come from Faroani getting pulled out of position.

I thought we brilliant on Saturday and fully deserved the 3 points.
I think we are destined for the play-offs with Beppe and the boys.

We have FIVE loanees who joined in January (Toszer, Merkel, Bellerin, Young & Diakite) as well a new permanent signing in Ranegie but only one of them has seen any game time of note and he, so far, has looked like an excellent addition.

And Ranegie, who joined on a FOUR year deal, hasn't had a single minute which is a little odd.

It may sound like I'm moaning but believe me I'm not. I just can't work out why we would loan out potentially very good assets at this level (Bellerin especially comes to mind as we had him on loan before) only for them to get little or no game time?

Surely they were signed with a view to fill a role/deficiency and not as backfill?

And no, I don't mean rip out the guts of the team and put all six in but on Saturday when were up against it surely a strong 6' 5" striker would have been something for the oppoostion to worry about rather than the other way around? Or how was the busy but ineffective Battochio left on the pitch when Merkel is on the bench?

Maybe I am moaning a little.
so who do you leave out to put in Bellerin?
Faraoni
don't be silly one of our best players
I agree about Faraoni Jason. Although there's not much between him & Bellerin - both offer a lot going forward. Faraoni is ours long term so why not give him the game time?
