Just the other week Watford midfielder Lee Williamson reckoned “we should be beating sides like Sheffield Wednesday” after a comprehensive 2-0 loss at Hillsborough?

Now it appears another Steel city side have been in the Hornets firing line despite taking all 3 points off Watford with Aidy Boothroyd insisting “a team like [Sheffield United] we should be beating despite our injury problems and everything else”.

Really Aidy? You really believe that?

The Hornets chief saw his side succumb to a 2-1 defeat at Bramall Lane after being out-muscled in certain areas of the park AND failing to deal with the basic “meat and drink” in a style of play they know all to well about.

A downbeat Boothroyd stated “We let ourselves down today and if you can’t handle a battering then you will get what you deserve in Sheffield.”

“They are a very direct team and they are going to throw it in there but we have big boys and you`ve got to throw your face in and get hurt?”

He further bemoaned the fact that his troops didn`t deal with a predictable Blades gameplan, blasting “?we give away a stupid goal from a poxy long throw that we`ve worked well on all week knowing that`s what`s going to happen”.

‘We tactically changed it around and got back into the game and then threw it away again because we don`t defend a cross properly – that`s our meat and drink?”

Indeed it is Aidy and today we really should have dumped the appetizer of ‘powder puff` sherbet passing and mixed it up a bit with a side well equipped for the hustle and bustle.
