Can't see us repeating last season's result. But we live in hope! :thup:

The Brighton Boss said he thought his team played better this week, than against Watford.

If we can get Noble, Haller and Anderson back, I'm confident of getting the 3 points.

I actually meant score (4-1), rather than result. But still, we live in hope.

I can see Wilshere being benched after his performances so far. Really need Haller to be back to give us an out ball. Going 4-4-2 would be reckless, but I wouldn't put it past Pelle.

I would think Rice and Lanzini are the only two from today's starting front 6 who are certain to play (if fit). I don't imagine Snodgrass will be out wide either if he makes the starting XI. The back 6 will be unchanged.

....and Snodgrass shouldn't be anywhere near the match day squad. I would draw a 50 mile radius of Vicarage Road Snodgrass exclusion zone

I just can't see us winning this game but I'd be extremely happy to be proven wrong!

Watford in an awful spell of form if you take end of last season into account as well
Let's be honest the end result could be anything

Any and every single team that haven't scored forever, score against us.

It is scientifically the West Ham way.

DL starting a match thread, now we're talking! Went on an unbeaten run at the end of last season, I believe?
Watford have got players that can hurt us & they are at home BUT, they are in appalling form.
I'm still worried though...

Good time to meet them. Nothing from Brighton and Everton (even though they seemed okay today).

Another defeat could really put them into a tricky spot.
