Hornets fan Lee Coan looks back on Watford's 1-1 draw with Championship promotion chasers Burnley

This Is Local London: Beppe Sannino is unable to hide his frustration after Burnley's late equaliser. Picture: Holly Cant Beppe Sannino is unable to hide his frustration after Burnley's late equaliser. Picture: Holly Cant

I don't think there were many of us who believed Watford were still in a promotion race prior to the Burnley game but when you go 1-0 up against a good side, all common sense starts to disappear.

You start to look at other results. You do your maths. You dare to dream. At half time I started to talk play-offs again, like a deluded fool.

Of course, as per usual this season, we conceded late and to be honest I'm just surprised we didn’t go on to lose.

It was all the more annoying as we had some good chances to wrap the three points up. That ball Ikechi Anya kicked towards the open net trickled so slowly toward the line, the eagle eyed in the Vicarage Road End may have observed a chipper looking snail casually overtaking it.

Talking of the eagle eyed...

Stuart Attwell

It was perhaps unfair of the footballing authorities to give Attwell this game to referee. The poor little lamb was under instant pressure not to make an error from the very start. Of course it was only going to end badly.

It was so sad to see our in-form player, Christian Battochio, exit the pitch as he did. I guess that will be the end of the season for our little number seven.

But Attwell allowed play to continue for countless seconds before Battocchio could receive treatment. Poor refereeing at The Vic again from our least favourite referee.

Sean Dyche

I don't think any Watford fans feel anything but delight at Dyche's Burnley going up.

His team played like Dyche's Watford and they're overachieving like Dyche's Watford.

They'll probably struggle next year but will have fun, so who cares? Oddly I still think it was the right thing for him to go when he did, for both the Hornets and Sean Dyche.

He was not the Pozzos’ man and if he had stayed, even the slightest string of bad results may have led to his sacking.

Would he have got a job like the Burnley one then? Possibly not.

Instead he left head held high, his CV looking good and walked into a cracking job where his talent has been able to develop. I'm glad he's going up, but SD please don't buy...

Troy Deeney

I thought Deeney was excellent on Saturday, which is almost a shame, as I guess it’s looking increasingly likely somebody will come in for him.

That somebody could be Premier League Burnley I guess, who need at least one other striker and will probably be raiding the Championship for talent.

I’m sure Dyche wouldn’t play him out on the wing again like old times.

I really hope Troy doesn't go, as we've learned the hard way this season... some players are just irreplaceable short term.

Not only that, Vydra's coming back next year (isn't he? Right? Right? Please, please, just say yes) and we all know how lethal that partnership was.

The problem footballers have, is they don't seem to learn from other players mistakes. Danny Graham left Watford, floundered in the premiership and is now back in the championship, carrying a few extra pounds and struggling to find the net the way he did with us! Marvin Sordell, Hameur Bouazza and even Matej Vydra all had their agents telling them they were better than Watford... and where are they now! At Watford, you'll be loved... go elsewhere and you'll struggle to win over fans that expect too much in a short space of time!

Troy, stick around... don't join the scrap heap too soon! Finish the job you've started!

Why talk just about Deeney? Lots more than that to worry about if we are going to try harder next season.
Firstly we need to play football for 90+ minutes
We need players who don,t panic kick the ball just to get rid of it
We need consistency from all the players all season long
We need a goalie who catches the ball and not one who punches back to the opposition
We need good strong midfield supporting the strikers
We need a good defence, determined to protect the goal and stand firm
We need strikers who want to play for us and can score goals- the more the better
Players who have a must win attitude and not like this year. Sannino is not happy with last 15-20 minutes and I have to agree, it's like they can,t wait to go home.
Overall it's about the team and not just Deeney.
If Deeney gets the chance then he will probably go, but I would not want the issue of this year where it was banded about , he did not go, but for weeks you could tell his head was not in the right place. Now it is and he's doing well BUT he has to want to stay to perform.

I would be disappointed if Troy decided to leave, but it is a short career. We know Watford do not/ cannot/ will not pay inflated salaries, so as a club we are always liable to have our players sold, even to clubs of a similar size and status, because the owners refuse to be hostages to fortune.

But Troy has a family to consider and it is obvious from his Twitter a/c and statements that he idolizes his son so, understandably, he will put his future at the top of his priorities.

As a professional, he will also wish to test himself at the highest level he can. IMO he falls into the category that are top Championship players, but not quite good enough for the Premier League - e.g Danny Graham, Heider, Tommy Smith, Marvin even Chris Eagles.

But unless he tests himself he would never know and due to the mediocrity of our campaign, that test cannot be with Watford next season. Still fingers crossed he stays.

THey are all getting paid more than they were at Watford. You are onviously a bit thick so I'll explain it to you simply.

Say in your job you earn £50k a year. Someone in another, bigger company offers you £100k a year for the same job.

The fortunes of the two firms change a bit and some of your erstwhile colleagues up their earning to £60k....

Would you give a toss?

Some people would but they are amateurs. Like it or loathe it a professional's duty is to maximise their earnings.

We stuck by Deeney when many felt he should be shown the door, including moi. Be interesting to see what happens this Summer - money speaks - but if Troy puts in a transfer request I will be disappointed in him.
I'd be well gutted.

Why are football fans so stupid?

Why talk just about Deeney? Lots more than that to worry about if we are going to try harder next season.
Firstly we need to play football for 90+ minutes
We need players who don,t panic kick the ball just to get rid of it
We need consistency from all the players all season long
We need a goalie who catches the ball and not one who punches back to the opposition
We need good strong midfield supporting the strikers
We need a good defence, determined to protect the goal and stand firm
We need strikers who want to play for us and can score goals- the more the better
Players who have a must win attitude and not like this year. Sannino is not happy with last 15-20 minutes and I have to agree, it's like they can,t wait to go home.
Overall it's about the team and not just Deeney.
If Deeney gets the chance then he will probably go, but I would not want the issue of this year where it was banded about , he did not go, but for weeks you could tell his head was not in the right place. Now it is and he's doing well BUT he has to want to stay to perform.
Aahhhhhhhhh!!!!

Bird football fans are even more stupid than bloke ones....


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HHHHHHHHH!!!!

I know we should look forward but we should also celebrate our past. Couldn't sleep last night so at 3 this am, watched the whole 90 minutes of THAT Leicester match. I had forgotten just how very special that team was and again can not help thinking that last year was our chance and we, sadly, fell short. I have seen some good stuff this year, and some dross, but nothing anywhere near the sheer brilliance of last year's high points. I think the league has been weaker this year yet we have fallen short again. I do think it will be nothing overly special next year so a bit of fine tuning by adding to what we have and. I think maybe, just maybe, we might cross the line next time round. Here' s hoping anyway

I have done that (watched that game) a couple of times this season,
so I must be even more upset than you Exeter.

It was stated in this article that we are now out of the race for that final play-off place!
When you look at the fixtures Reading have left, I would disagree!!
Bournemouth A, Leicester H, Wigan A, Middlesbro H, Doncaster A, and Burnley H.
Take them out of the equation and we are not that far away given the form of the teams in 7th to 11th place, Bournemouth excluded!!
Keep the faith guys! we might still suprise a few people !!
