'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Aidy: We allowed them to play

Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd said that his side were too respectful of Manchester United and allowed them to play during the 2-1 defeat at Vicarage Road.

"We didn't do what we're good at, we didn't play in the Watford way, we were too respectful at times and that's not what we're all about," Boothroyd told the official site.

"We got promoted by getting in people's faces and showed them who we are and we didn't do that today. We allowed them to play and were masters of our own downfall, explained Boothroyd."

"The players that I have are fantastic people who are wonderfully, wonderfully gifted and if they believed what I believe then we'd be at the top
of the league but that's going to come."

"There's nothing to be feared but we've got to be better than we were today. We weren't optimistic enough in expecting the ball to bounce our way when we got it in the box," continued the Watford boss. "We need to put teams under pressure and look for their psychological weakness when we do so but we didn't manage that today."

However, Boothroyd did have some praise for goalkeeper Richard Lee, who made his first Watford appearance in nearly 18 months.

"Richard Lee did well today, he made a couple of great saves and I'm really pleased for him. I'm glad we've got two weeks off now so that we can sit down and reflect properly so we can realise how good we can be and how much more work there is to do."
