Neither Watford nor West Ham are bad enough to get drawn into a relegation battle this season, but they are certainly not good enough to make any sort of push for Europe, either. It is not even March, but it is hard to avoid the feeling that mid-table obscurity beckons for both these sides in the coming months.

After a two week break, and notwithstanding a defeat at Old Trafford that was disappointing but far from humiliating, perspective on games like this has changed.  The two wins against Arsenal and Burnley reversed the gentle downwards slide and we are now by general consensus a Mid Table Club… not that relegation is impossible, but we’d have to work pretty hard to achieve it.

screen-shot-2016-10-30-at-15-22-53I’m happy to take a point from this game. West Ham were by far the better side but we continually played right into their hands with our ‘lump it up to Deeney and see what happens’ tactic.
