In that case, what did you think of Holtby's "dive" for the penalty?

Clever play to draw a foul in dangerous areas if you ask me.  Whilst they might have been looked for, none of them have been dives.

Holtby was brought down from behind by a defender who was the wrong side of him. Brereton just backs into the defender and then throws himself to the ground.

My view of the game was it was a typical Rovers-Mowbray effort. Having experienced this sort of thing now for over 2 years at this level it is tiring and predictable. I had absolutely no belief or exp

Being the "better team" isn't all about how much possession, how many passes and how near you get to the opponents box. Fatal mistake thinking that.  There's two sides to every game of footb

We got it tactically right tonight. Dominated a top team from start to finish.

The manager can’t make Armstrong miss three top chances and a penalty. He can’t make Lenihan be less cumbersome for their third or take the blame for Lenihans header in the first half which should’ve been finished.

Onwards and upwards

Arma should have been carted off for Dolan but he seems to get a free pass.  His body language annoys me at the moment, he just doesn't seem too assed

He had a spell a couple of seasons ago where he couldn’t buy a goal and Mowbray stuck by him. Was Tony ever a milkman?

The manager only bought one centre half when it was obvious we needed 2. He put Bell up against Sarr when he has his new singing in Douglas on the bench. A comfortable win for Watford and they never had to get out of 2nd gear.

Ridiculous game. We could have scored a hatful, but we didn't and we are way too easily exposed at the back. 

Evans can do one and Bell is not a championship left back. 

So frustrating, for me we've played well generally but some of our defending has been shocking. 

One chance is all you need against this side at the moment. I do feel if we scored first the game could have been different but we're incredibly fragile.

It’s true. We watch the same things happening with different players.

And people still blame the players!

Eh!!??? We haven’t had 67% away from home many times in my life. The players have worked hard here and we have played well...but we’ve lost this game purely down to individual player errors. 18 shots and only one goal....we’ve missed a bucketful tonight.

Damn shame when we play reasonably well, Big Ben scores a world class goal & 17 year old Elliott stars in his first game that the defending frailties are still with us. Lots to learn from tonight. Kaminski needs to look at his game - comes out his area a long way. We need a new penalty taker. 

We lost yet we could have easily won this one.

Own-goal; missed pk, etc. lots of blame to be shared for this one. It’s hard to envision playoffs with performances like this.

I think we've battered them.

The immobile midfield and Ben Foster having a blinder has been the difference. 

If we play like that week in, week out, we'll be there or there abouts come the end of the season.

Baffling result.

That’s a ridiculous post after another defeat in which the manager’s weaknesses were exposed again. Onwards and downwards towards the bottom is the truth

No Paul, but he can identify a left back who is an absolute liability

So woeful tonight against a Poor watford side there for taking. We seem to go on a good run and then just collapse. Something is wrong. We really need to put things right and its all right to say armstrong was poor. He need to step up.
