What a 2nd half.
I was seriously struggling to see how Blackpool where so shit after the first half bu the moment we scored they completely fell apart.
First time I have ever seen us score 7 and all of them to come in one half was amazing.
12 goals in the last 2 home games!

COYH!

Wow what a game of 2 halves.

At half time we brought Ben Watson on - doubt it was with the plan that we'd score 7!!!!!

A couple of passes forward and decent defending would have been a start...

Just think we totally killed them by scoring 3/4 goals in 10 minutes.

Like Charlton Blackpool lost any shape and confidence after that whilst we gained so much with Deeney and Igalo on fire.

Its the typical football fan in me that says we probably wouldn't get away with such a first half against the top sides.

But the afternoon was great - after all football is about entertainment and we seem to get it good or bad!

The amusing thing, some people genuinely left at half time, probably the same people that left when Leicester were given the penalty in the play-off semi final.

Morons.

What a turnaround for Watford, I know so many people that had them on their coupons today who ripped up slips and gave up at half time.

Amazing come back.

I thought Blackpool were about to kick start their season when I checked my phone at half time.

I was wrong.

Fair play Watford, 7 goals in a half at this level is impressive!

Goals 1-3 I'd say were purely down to us playing exceptionally well, 4-7 though where just Blackpool being crap. I've seen teams capitulate before (blackpool did it last season) but I have never seen a bunch of players look as uninterested as they where for the last 30 mins of the game as they were today. It was shockingly bad.

At least their story of woe has been largely overlooked today by the FA Cup games. Going by the highlights they were dreadful, typical resigned stuff not putting the tackles in.

I didn't even celebrate our second goal. I knew we'd lose. We are fucking terrible.

Season was done weeks ago.

Watford, with respect aren't even that good. And absolutely ripped us apart, bar Deeney I wasn't overally impressed. And they scored 7.

At least we will get a couple of derby days next season!
