Lawro actually thinks we are going to win 2-0! (First time he has said we won't lose all season I think..)

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/34634472

Personally I'd take a draw against a side unbeaten away from home and in good form (and have a decent record against us)
You think Lawro never predicts you to win?! In God knows how long he's been doing his stupid predictions he's never come close to saying we'll get anything out of a game, he's got some weird hatred against us and if his predictions were correct we'd probably already be relegated by now.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this but I'm not over-confident as its like us to slip up in this type of fixture, still I'll go for 2-1 West Ham.

tbf he's not relegated you once and you've actually been relegated in that period...

2009/10: Lawro - 13th (39pts), actual - 17th (35pts)
2010/11: Lawro - 14th (40pts), actual - 20th (33pts)
2011/12: n/a
2012/13: Lawro - 13th (38pts), actual - 10th (46pts)
2013/14: Lawro - 17th (35pts), actual - 13th (40pts)
2014/15: Lawro - 10th (44pts), actual - 12th (47pts)

also, while he's been massively wrong, his predictions for you this season have hardly been unreasonable - you've exceeded everyone's expectations, including yours presumably?

Yeh, we have obviously done way better than anyone would've believed we could, however, the fact that he predicts us to lose every single game we play, away at Sunderland for example he predicts use to lose 2-0 and says that he "doesn't know why but he thinks we will lose-" that's not exactly the best reason to give behind it. I get that we've exceeded expectations but for him to predict us not to win at all after 11 games is just ridiculous. Anyway rant over, hopefully we can win tomorrow and shove Lawros predictions. Nice facts by the way Munk.

Should be a good game this one, and like jackinky I'm opting for us to win by a small margin, the last time we lost to Watford at the Vicarage in a league game was 30 years ago in April 1985 when they won 5-0 (division one)
Super Slav and his merry men to win 2-0.......hopefully.

A great performance.

Went at them from the off and fully deserved to be more than 2 ahead - nice to see us go for it straight after the break too.

After that we generally defended very well so all round a very good job.

Watford making a very impressive fist of staying up at the moment.

So far very good - if we play as we have in the past 2 games I'd like to think we will be safely mid-table but there will be a blip..

Got Leicester and Man U next which will be another good test of course before playing Villa/Norwich and Sunderland so 3 key games there.

Just annoying we don't play Chelsea till Boxing Day - they might have sorted themselves out by then!

Christmas time might be a bit messy with Spurs/Man City and Liverpool to face.
