We've got a shite record here but I do think the new manager bounce may work its magic for us yet again.

Gone to 3 at the back. Interesting but positive change I'd say.

Good attacking intent on the pitch - Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy along with Chilwell and Pereira on either wing.

Rubbish defending from Morgan, even if Deeney was every so marginally offside.

Morgan has to be surplus to requirements next season. There's been enough incidents this year to single out more than ever why he's no longer good enough for this division.

Leicester have been poor, their front three have barely any movement. Three at the back and yet the wingbacks are barely influencing the game.

Watford haven't had to do a lot to stay in the lead and are lucky to be leading, but Leicester have been naff.

Yep, passing has been rubbish, too.

It's all well and good having wing-backs on both sides that push up far, but no use having them if there's no-one they can pass to or get support from.

Watford haven't been great, we've made them look good and comfortable after they got the early goal. Occasionally we'll show a glimpse of looking good and getting in behind but the final ball isn't there yet.

I think we need to go back to 4 at the back. Bring Gray on for Morgan, drop Chilwell and Pereira back and have Gray and Barnes supporting Vardy.

Fair play to the ref there. Easy to get the red card out for that tackle from Deeney on Schmeichel because it looked bad initially, but common sense prevails.

Surely you have better than Harvey Barnes on the bench? Good footwork, pretty bad finishing/decision making.

Can guarantee if it was less of a solid player who doesn't make a meal of things, it's a red. Sometimes referees get conned or played by how a player reacts to a challenge. Schmeichel was pretty much straight up on his feet. If it was your more flamboyant players, they're rolling around like crazy and almost feigning injury.

Leicester have been abysmal for 75 minutes and not looked like scoring and now they have. Awful game this.

Watford's only game plan has been to park the bus and hang onto a one goal lead. Hope Leicester win as they have been completely shit, but they've been the only side who've wanted to attack.

Watford haven’t needed to though, Leicester have been woeful and knocked the ball around the back four and midfield without any attacking threat whatsoever.

It's one thing I hope with Rodgers now in charge.

We seem too cautious and that got engrained by Puel. 

I'm hoping that we take more risks and be a bit more courageous when attacking as time goes on.

They have because it's 1-1 now, regardless of how shit Leicester have been. Trying to hold a one goal lead for 90 minutes without attacking the ball whatsoever is a shocking tactic, especially when the opposition have someone as prolific as Jamie Vardy up front.

So fucking frustrating. Utterly shit decisions costing us the game. Schmeichel's kick-out was disgustingly lazy.

Exciting last 5-10 minutes, dull game overall. Watford fortunate to win but clinical seeing as they had about two actual efforts on goal, good to see Andre Gray still scoring.

Leicester poor all game even with that Vardy goal, never managed to turn the pressure up much after.

We did a little bit but goes back to poor decisions being made.

Almost as if when we get in to good positions on the wings near the box or near the by-line, we put a cross in in the hope of finding someone, as opposed to knowing where your players might be and targeting them.

You should sign Luis Suarez to get the most out of Rodgers
