Quique Sanchez Flores insists Watford are working hard to improve fortunes after Wolverhampton Wanderers loss
“We have problems, we have insecurities. We made easy mistakes that give advantage to an opponent. All these things happen when you are a bit down,” Sánchez Flores said. His general criticism soon gave way to a more specific critique however, with the Spaniard suggesting his players had not understood, or failed to act upon, his instructions.
Danny Welbeck, leading the line in his first Premier League start in almost a year, produced Watford’s best effort, the former Arsenal striker drawing a good save from Rui Patricio in the second half, but that was the only time the visitors really looked like scoring.
Wolves’ second took any fight out of us, and there was no praying for minutes as the board goes up, no suggestion of a fightback. Maybe all it would have taken was a goal, home fans suddenly nervous in the closing minutes, we’ll never know. In the same way there are several ways to interpret this game… given this vantage point, given last week, given no wins and such little fight it’s difficult not to be negative.
As I left work on Friday, I had a chat with one of my colleagues about our chances for the weekend. He reminded me that going to football was supposed to be fun. He is so right and, sadly, the games really aren’t fun at the moment. I hope that changes very soon.
