Wild Kayode eats Watford alive

Wild Kayode eats Watford alive

Few words can describe my anger at Watford's latest shambolic performance in the 3-0 home defeat to surprisingly upbeat Barnsley. Lacklustre isn`t strong enough. Clueless tells only half the story…

But at least I lasted the full 90 miserable minutes (though only because I had to) unlike the majority of the bumper Vicarage Road crowd - most of whom were heading for the exit just 5 minutes after half time.

Even Aidy Boothroyd admitted he`d "have gone home early" given the choice but let`s face facts Aidy, your boys never turned up at all, all night, anyway.

And against an understrength Tykes side as well - No Howard. No Devaney. No Nardiello…

Yet only Lloyd Doyley (and to a lesser extent Jobi McAnuff) seemed to have some second half fire in his belly and showed any ounce of urgency against a up-n-at 'em Barnsley side fired by a wild Kayode and with the impressive Diego Leon picking off killer passes with ease.

The Hornets registered no decent chances of note all night. A close range O`Toole header that bounced off the post caused a few ooo`s to ring out and a marauding Doyley almost bought the house down but in truth they were more out of sheer bewilderment than hope! Richard Lee made 2 great saves and picked the ball out of the net 3 times - it could and really should have been worse with Odejay in a fine fettle of finishing form (his 2nd and Barnsley`s 3rd was the strike of the night)

And to cap it all Henderson pulls up with a hamstring injury that makes him a serious doubt for West Brom away on Saturday

Never had Boothroyd summed it up as rightly as he did last night. He was damn right...

Yes "we were found wanting" and Yes "we got exactly what we deserved".

End of.

The display was not good. We need to put it behind us now. We can't change the past. We need to get behind the team. We still have a chance.
