Well Watford's goal shouldn't have stood - both their players were in our half when Arnie kicked-off.
(click to thumbnail to enlarge).
Watford were a bit unlucky with the red card though. But the free-kick and penalty decisions were correct.
Thought we did pretty well today. Defence was as iffy as it's ever been though - especially when Zab came on. Pity we didn't name the young Johnson lad on the bench.
Antonio has put in a couple of cracking Hollywood-reel performances lately - not always the best options though.
Noble has been superb recently.
Arnie seemed fairly happy with his team-mates today - even when Noble took the ball off him for the penalty. Last we've seen of him?
And I wonder if we'll see Hernandez again (I thought he was getting ready to come on for the last 20-odd minutes) and Nasri. In the latter's case I really hope so.
Good end to the season and hopefully something we build on.
I'm not sure we're really "Best of the Rest" - yes, we've had a lot of dodgy decisions against us (again) but we were terrible at times too. As is the case with Everton and Leicester who are very capable but underperformed for significant spells. Wolves did the double on us, quite comfortably. And despite their showing today, Watford reached the FA Cup final - although iirc I thought they were lucky with their 2-0 win at our place.
If they can keep Zaha, and/or strengthen their team, Palace have begun to look a good team too.
Tellingly though, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Man Utd have supposedly had poor seasons again, yet we (nor the others aforementioned) are nowhere near them.
Brighton 2-0 up now too.
Thanks S-H, I steered clear of the thread just in case.
