After the game verdict – Watford

After a couple of nice performances another bad one – we were lucky enough not to concede a couple of times.

Blind had a bad day, and particularly in the first half, Watford could have scored some goals. Still, a win is a win, and the most important thing is that this season we more often lost these kinds of games than won. And finally, we could capitalize on the others loss!

But I just don’t like watching us fighting defenders in the 87th minute at the corner flag only to waste time. The last time I enjoyed that was vs Everton a couple of years ago (2007, I guess) but then it was Rooney who made the defenders look like… errm, it doesn’t matter. And then we moved 5 points clear on the table to win the league…

And the subs. Poor Darmian really had a bad day.

Round 34, predictions

With three matches still missing from last week’s round – there’s no full table for that one.

But the next one is on the corner, so that’s it, here we go again. This time it’s Everton away for ManUtd, where winning is a must, there can’t be no other result. Can it be done? Of course. Will it be tough? Of course.

Last year they did the double on us, and they did that with their counterpart on Merseyside – but now we are in pole position to that to them, we only need to beat the Toffies on Sunday.

On the other hand we need Chelsea to do a favour for us and beat Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, because City will probably beat Aston Villa quite easily.

And, as it is the 34th round, there’s only four more – so the summer draught is coming, unfortunately.

Let’s see our predictions, feel free to post yours!
