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

Watford vs. Plymouth Argyle

Vicarage Road



Plymouth Preview - Home, April 10th

IT'S quite possibly the most important game of the season for both Watford and Plymouth Argyle this weekend at the Vic', if the Hornet's win they'll pull themselves a massive three points clear of relegation, leaving Paul Marriner's Plymouth would be left seven points adrift of safety. If Sheffield Wednesday better Watford's result the Hornet's will drop into the bottom three.

It's delicately poised

A 'worst case scenario' team, if all our injured players failed to return...

Player to watch: Errrrrrrr....Danny Graham?

The former Middlesbrough and Carlisle United forward scored an absolute corker against West Brom on Monday from 25 yards to notch his 50th career league goal and his 10th of the campaign.

Plymouth Argyle Team News:

Right backs David McNamee and Karl Duguid are both out meaning that versatile midfielder Chris Clark looks likely to slot in at right-back for the visitors.

Likely Plymouth Argyle XI
Clark R.Johnson N'Gala Eckersley
Judge Fletcher(c) D.Johnson Mackie
Wright-Phillips Mason

Player to watch: Joe Mason

Local-boy Joe Mason has made a big impact on the first-team setup at Home Park scoring 3 goals in 3 league starts, making a further 12 substitute appearances in the Championship.

Match Prediction:

A really, really hard game to call; both sides have a claim to win the game but I think home advantage (and my own bias) will see Watford through to three points.

No Noone for Plymouth whilst Fletcher is rated as 50:50 - wouldn't it be just so that a Watford old loanee does the Hornets in whilst the new loan star Cleverley can only sit and twiddle his thumbs!
sorry to go 'off topic' but i have just been over on vital boro and saw your comment DrWatford on there about pompey!
i have to say that i was saddened by it, and in many ways VERY surprised...
i would NEVER wish, or claim ANY club 'deserved' to go bust and it saddens me that some people WOULD...
you know what surprised me even more tho? that these thoughts came from a fan or a club that is/has been in as much trouble as watford have/are - i would have thought this would have made you even more understanding to clubs in trouble and know what it feels like you have your club on the brink so to 'wish' it on another club, or 'wish' they HAD gone bust in unbelieveable...
if you do not go down this season i look forward to my return to the vic next season and will get immense joy from coming away with 3pts!
erm... the reason were so close to administration Mr Rug is that Pompey did in fact buy 2 Watford players that couldn't afford, effectively ripped the heart out of our team, put us on the brink and then missed payments back to us!!! For a Premiership side to do this to a Championship is UNACCEPTABLE and it took the FA to bail you lot out. AMEN...
It's essentially a very low, very sly form of cheating.
you think i, or any other pompey fan is happy or pleased with what has happened and/or that we - as a club 'could' have aided your downfall? because we are not!
in actual fact it was the premier league, and not the FA, that 'bailed us out' and this WAS with money that was due to the club - so i was happy they withheld it and passed onto you...
as far as 'ripping the heart out of your team' goes, ***** me, true looking at how our 'heart' was ripped out, we are not talking 2 players we are talking half a dozen, a dozen even!
and to suggest that the non-payments from pompey made as much difference as you think is laughable, as said it DID NOT help, but do not try making out that it was the major factor as it was not.
But it was A major factor, not the. We sold you around 4m of players the Summer just gone. We would have been better selling to a club who paid us the whole sum, up front. I'm not saying I want you to go out of business but you were essentially buying players with money you didn't have, still.
