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

'If life seems jolly rotten'

It wasn`t pretty was it? Outclassed by a side that look certs to be relegated after a horrific start to last season. Marlon was absent and Tommy was frankly woeful in front of goal.

However, even as an eternal pessimist, here I am saying, "let`s put it all in perspective." It`s a dull, grey, rainy Monday morning. You`re back at work getting pelters from your mates after Watford`s dismal draw with Blackpool, never fear though - because every cloud has a silver lining - more to the point, one man`s misery is another few [thousands] joy!

Although our weekend as Watford supporters wasn`t great, fans of our nearest and dearest [rivals] had a much, much worse weekend.

Luton Town managed to go down 2-0 at home to Huddersfield Town after their midweek heroics over Charlton Athletic. Yes, that`s Huddersfield Town, former club of Mike Newell, Luton reject and Adam Boyd, Luton failure - still, things only get better when you leave 'The Kennel` and Boyd`s Orient side are sitting top of the league!

As for our other favourite team, Queens Park Rangers, not only did they manage to get thumped five-one by an increasingly impressive West Bromwich Albion, Kevin Phillips managed a brace, Kevin Phillips, Watford cult-idol at one point!

And, just to compound Ranger`s fans miseries, John Gregory has this morning been sacked by the board after failing to win a single game this term - that said, Watford did drop two points in London last weekend.

So there you have it, things aren`t that bad are they? We`re only top of the league with the brightest young manager in English football and not a penny of debt to worry about, hardly a crisis…for those of you still not convinced, Samaritans are available on 08457 90 90 90...
