Schoolboy defending. Zero effort at stopping the cross and then a free header. Utter s****!

And there it is. Dominate them for 65 minutes. Ease off and let them back in, concede equaliser then lose game in last minute.

I’d have taken a point.

Dominate them? I'm genuinely asking because I haven't watched it but according to BBC stats we've only had 34% possession and 2 shots on target.

Probably counts as domination by our standards <laugh>

Well not really dominate but we’ve been by far the better team (up until last 20 mins. ). Watford haven’t really done anything tbh

Was expecting to lose so that's a bonus. If our home form was ok we'd be comfortably mid table.

Sorry fella but you obviously watched a different game to me. We just about earned a point, nothing more.

We were definitely better for a good 40 minutes following our goal, but you could also see the 1-1 coming about 5 minutes before it happened.

Rondon MOTM. Ritchie stays in form. Dubravka staying consistent. We missed Ki so much today. And definitely keep Atsu in over Kenedy for now.

I hope Fernandez' injury isn't too serious

Really ? Watford didn’t look like scoring to me (well until the obvious) feels like a loss to concede late as well

Really? We were comfortably the better team for 70 minutes. To say we "just about" earned a point is pretty nonsensical considering we had the ball in the net 3 times in the first half and they did nothing of note until they realised the game was slipping away from them.

We should have, as usual, sealed up the game with a second but our defensive tactics in the last 25 minutes came back, as usual, to haunt us.
