“Our last 3 Championship managers have all started their reign with a 1-0 win at the Vic.”
“Unspectacular 1-0. The game won’t linger long in the memory but the 3 points will. “
“3 points. job done. on to the next one. “
“A win at home. We live in strange times “
“I did try to warn you all about the gap between the Prem and the Champo.”
“Great start, great result. Ok performance with lots to build on.”
“Decent enough performance against a team that most are predicting to do very well this season “
“Thought we looked solid enough, and a relieve to get the win. Very difficult to judge until we know who stays /goes. “
“Up front looking good but that’s a weak looking midfield”
“Very happy with the win. Deserved it. Decent performances from everyone, with JP, Dennis, Kamara and Sarr standout. Defence solid. Was pleased with Kayembe. Clevs gave us a few moments of concern.
One of the main takes from the game is that we are likely to be in bother without Sarr and more particularly Dennis. Thought Minaj did ok when he came on, but too short a time to judge. “
“Perhaps we should encourage more teams to foul JP. After he was body checked on the touchline without a foul being given, he was clearly furious. Took out an opposition player for a yellow, then ran the entire SU team ragged on his own for 10 minutes.”
“I would say we’ve been the better team. Sheff Utd have definitely got lucky with some of the deflections and blocks going their way. Their backline will be feeling it”
“Not a bad start.
We are a bit toothless up front. “
“An offside goal but we were crap. Sheffield utd were poor too. Crap game. Crap ref.”
“Great start, but come on, it was just the same style as last season.
“Finally a team that gives us some passion and fight! For sure Dennis and Sarr have said they will give it their all untill they get their moves! Fair play. Looked unplayable tonight those 3 up top”
“We should win comfortably with that front 3. Rest of the side is ****. “
“I think if we lose Dennis and Sarr, with Pedro we still might be ok against the championship dross, but we’ll have no chance against teams with a realistic shot of top two. “
“Once we sell Dennis and Sarr we will be a **** side at this level. “
“Overall, decent performance all things considered, and it was important to get 3 points. I worry that we’ll lose all of our firepower if we sell both Sarr and Dennis, because I don’t trust us to get adequate replacements.Max Lowe had one of, if not the worst performances I have ever seen and that Khadra guy is built like Tufan but much more mobile”
“Great start and result. Great atmosphere too. Onwards and upwards. Pretty much a stroll.”
“Can tell it’s the Championship..
Very low crowd – particularly in Family Stand.
Although they have the flags “

Fair comments and a fair result , watford were the better team.
Ye especially the Max Lowe observation. I had to check his Pass Success Rate after the game. I’ve never done that before but it blew my mind how bad he was.
He played 35 minutes and managed a Pass Success rate of 46% 🤦🏻
