Preston will probably win - they usually do!

Just looked at Watford's squad on Wikipedia, it's fucking massive and foreign.

They could probably field three different teams.

Doesn't matter - we will still lose

Probably even more so if we field a team of mostly overseas players..

I imagine we will field a team that resembles last years promotion winnin team closely, not that it will matter, someone posted on twitter earlier that we haven't won at deepdale since 1973, it just won't happen even if it should.

£15 is ridiculous, don't know why I'm even bothering for that price tbh.

I don't think £15 is that bad tbh, no JPT or early FA Cup rounds to fork out on this year.

I think it might be a decent game tonight.

WatfordFC starting XI vs Preston: Arlauskis: Paredes: Angella, Britos, Ake: Watson, Smith; Layun, Abdi, Forestieri; Vydra.

Gilmartin, Belkalem, Hoban, Pudil, Berghuis, Dyer.

Very strong attacking line up.
Not much on the bench though.

Typical League Cup performance.

Not sure why we bother...

As routine as they come really, thought we looked the better team throughout.

Kilkenny ran the midfield and deservedly picked up the man of the match award, Brownhill was great when he got forward, Browne quietly went about his business and Vermijl and Reid caused problems down the sides.

Their only real effort on goal from what I can remember was a 25 yarder which was save brilliantly saved by Pickford, was definitely bending into that top corner.

Well at least Luton lost, one singular positive to take from the night.

Watford midfielder Ben Watson admitted: 'We would have got a result if we'd kept 11 men. It knocked the stuffing out of us. He has apologised.

Has ginger bollocks been sniffing something?

They always say that sort of stuff - we seem to be appealing the red card.

No idea what actually happened, heard it was an elbow, are there any highlights out yet?

Not of the red card - which won't help us!
