Watford style surprised W'Ham - Zola

Watford style surprised W'Ham - Zola

It appears New Watford`s old reputation for their up and at 'em long ball style simply won`t go away despite the much changed, much improved approach on show this season.

But it seems that word of Watford`s new 'sexy` football is not filtering down to the opposition after W`Ham gaffer Gianfranco Zola declared he was "surprised" by Watford`s style after their 1-0 Carling Cup 'hammer`ing.

All the pre-match talk out of the East Enders camp had been of an expectant rude awakening at Vicarage Road. Even England`s 7th best keeper Robert Green warned W`Ham`s bunch of jolly Johnny Foreigners that they "wouldn`t have come up against anything like it before".

"Expect a few bruises" Green said. Well Robert, the only bruising done was that to the Premiership big boys ego`s as the Hornets passed them off the park.

And Zola couldn`t help but state the bleeding obvious, admitting "Watford were much better than we expected them to be".

First rule of management Gianfranco - never underestimate your opposition....

...and kids, always do your homework.

Just goes to show that they are so arrogant and full of themselves in the Prem, they have not even bothered to watch us play this year. If so, they'd notice the change in style of play and the absense of big players. Zola's a good guy and this truly serves them right. Also hope they gert taken to the cleaners by Sheff Utd. That was another travesty of justice and they should've been demoted. Don't think SU will under-estimate us on Sat. Let's hope Hendo remains on the injured list, would not fancy facing him. Come on You Golden Boys!
