Hodgson has said himself that his prime objective is to stave off relegation.His strategy has worked thus far and is likely to work this season.

I cannot see him abandoning his tried and trusted strategy and resorting to a new formula so I suspect a like-for-like replacement is the more likely outcome.A new manager would be required to change the way we play.

Edited by Willo (02 Dec 2019 9.03am)

I had based my comment in light of previous posts, which I agree with, that a like for like replacment for Wilf probably does not exist specifically in a hypothetical market where we would be able to immediately bring that person in.

If a like for like was available, we would't have much of an issue. As it stands however, I think it highly unlikely Wilf's value and structural place in the team can be replicated by a single acquisition, not to say I am correct in my thinking.

I understand your point completely Willo and agree but I think you've come at that with a different angle to my own. I agree that is the most likely outcome should Wilf leave but that will probably leave us far worse off. Most of our attacking play goes through Wilf and if the so called 'like for like' were not up to standard we would have to change tactics - the players would progressively do this naturally throughout a game or season irregardless of the manager.

I was trying to suggest what we would need to do to resolve a 'no Wilf' situation.

Tough one and poss controversial, he prob represents our best chance off a points yeild but,,

Injuries and suspensions arising from this game( we know they are a bunch of clogger, nobbler barstewards)

A.) Injured / suspension hampers our attacking threat for an indeterminate time.

B,) Scuppers any move, and the money that it brings for his replacement, + right back + striker+ giving the Americans their dividend.

Interesting idea.

Just as important as avoiding injury is avoiding a red card, and Watford are ideal candidates to provoke such a decision.

But would I leave Wolf out? That's a difficult one. I think big Ben should keep himself warm all the while Wolf is on the pitch.

Why not just not bother playing them, as they are too rough, give them the points.

Unbelievable thread.

Same as Teen Wolf? Teen Wolf ran the show. Team were hopeless without the wolf though, until the final.

Watford lacked that tough edge when I watched them against Saints; after they went ahead they seemed to play like a team in relative comfort, not one desperate for points and in the end it cost them. Even if they were the thugs of the last couple of seasons I would still play Wilf as you don't leave out your most dangerous player at this stage of the season unless they're carrying an injury.

Wilf or no wilf, it is the season for giving to those less fortunate, so you can count on palace to be benevolent and gift aid watford some points ( doesn't need to be christmas though, palace have a charitable nature when it comes to giving points to those in need whenever they need them.)

Did anyone else notice a very polite but frosty handshake at the end of the Bournemouth match last night between Wilf and Roy ? Roy gave everyone else a big pat on the back and a few words of praise . From what i could lip read Roy just said to Wilf "alright" !

 


oh yeah ,fcuk off brighton.

Given our form this season the only thing you gus need to worry about is how much you win by !

Our fans will probably be too busy criticising our own players to bother booing Zaha ..
