'Strike partnership CAN work': H

'Strike partnership CAN work': H

Returning striker Heidar Helguson has told the Watford Observer that his partnership spearheading the Watford attack with Danny Graham CAN work.

The Icelandic forward, who scored his 70th goal in a yellow shirt in last weekend's defeat to Doncaster told the Watford Observer that he and Danny Graham can work as a partnership:

'We showed in the first five or six games that we can,'

'People seem to be quick to jump on you when you have a barren run. 'Can the partnership work? Can they play together?'

'People forget we scored seven or eight in something like five before that so to say we can't play together is rubbish.'
Said the Icelandic cap.

Evidently Malky's having his doubts, or perhaps that's just Danny Graham's own barren run, after nine games without a goal, Golden Graham is well and truly off the boil. Mackay favoured a Helguson-Cleverley parnership and although the former scored, Graham holds a greater goal threat than the likes of John Eustace and Ross Jenkins who were allowed to parner in midfield with Graham on the bench.

Helguson grabbed two on his return to the Vic' against Leicester with partner Graham grbbing the other.

The duo's record together reads as follows:

layed: 11 HH: 6 DG: 2

Leicester (H) - Helguson 2; Graham 1

.B.A (A) - 0

.N.E (H) - Helguson 1

cunthorpe (H) - Helguson 2; Graham 1

alace (A) - 0

ewcastle (A) - 0

erby (H) - 0

eterborough (A) - 0

orest (H) - 0

ristol City (A) - 0

oncaster (A) - Helguson 1 (Pen.)

What I would suggest is that whilst the team's form has slipped - no wins in the league or cup for eight games (since the 3-1 vs. QPR at home), Helguson and Graham have hit a lean patch, simple as that.

hmmm Graham on the bench for Blackpool says it all really doesn't it. Sad thing is the same happened for ol' Danny Boy last season - 11 goals before Xmas, nothing after!!!

There is a lot of doom and gloom on other sites. Who at the start of the season thought we would be pushing for promotion? i always saw this season of one of survival, if we finish fourth from bottom, mission accomplished. It has been a bonus watching how they have played in certain games thus far, all the other teams in this league have or are going through a bad spell, Forest got of to a poor start, Sheff UTD lost several games in DEC and dropped right out, but look where they are now. Keep the faith.

Indeed Andy. The wfcforums are full of doom-merchants of late, that we started so well was gross over-achievement and an outlier. Our current position is much more akin to that I'd have expected at the beginning of the season.
