    One of the biggest games of Jay's life? Hope Watford can hang with the big boys...

    Goal Man U....Silvestre

    Don't think DeMerit had any part. Shot was from out wide. Poor marking by the outside back and Watford had too many men caught up field.

    Saha made the run. DeMerit had to stay with Skolskaer, and Shittu and Powell were too busy trying to figure out who had Solvestre to actually play defense on him. ManU is really eating Watford's left side alive. Two more chances as I type this.

    Watford brings on Spring for Bouazza in the 31st minute.

    They are reverting to a 4-4-2 formation.

    Foul on Jay gives Man U a dangerous free kick. Giggs botches the shot.

    Gavin Mahon takes down Ronaldo just outside the box. Ronaldo with some theatrics, but FK given to ManU

    Giggs hits it into wall

    Ronaldo makes a run up the middle, Demerit with the challenge, and Ronaldo shoots harmlessly wide

    HT: Demerit looks pretty good. He was nervy at the beginning, even made a poor backpass to Lee, and looks a bit weak on set pieces/corner kicks. However, he has made some nice challenges and long range passes.

    Bad backpass by Watford's #25, Spring, led directly to Giggs goal

    Man Utd substitution: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced by Ji-Sung Park (tactical).

    Man Utd now playing with only one forward (Saha). Could we see Rossi make his season debut?

    you guys see demerit get left in the dust by saha towards the end there? saha ran past like demerit was standing still. decent save by lee saved him complete embarrasment, but jay looked SERIOUSLY slow there.
