Fuller had three great chances in the last 10 minutes or so. The one that was pulled back to him but his shot was cleared off the line. The one where he left Jackson for dead and dinked it over the keeper, when he probably should have squared it to Parkin or Lawrence for a tap in? The one where he was through one on one at the end but the keeper saved.
You could actually argue that Watford were hanging on a bit at the end
3/10 Pulis played his full part (together with Boothroyd) in creating a dire spectacle that will ensure that very few of the public watching on Sky will ever be tempted to pay good money to watch such fare at the Britannia, and nor will many of those attending on freebie tickets be tempted to reach into their pockets in the future. The Pulis regime will be judged entirely on the result at the end of this season. It will not be enough - given the substantial investment in Pulis's team that Coates has made - to qualify for the play-offs, where there is only a one in four chance of promotion, because football itself has been sacrificed for this manager's ethos. Only promotion should allow him to continue in his job beyond this season.
8 from me - a good but not great performance, with a limited squad to pick from, against a side who'll more than likely be in the Prem next season. Fuller's a luck and confidence player, they're almost back and if they had been we'd have nicked the points.
-1 well I might as well regards some of the stupid idiotic posts on here so far, c00kie? What fookin planet mate. are we so goo that we have to perform and entertain every match regardless of the opposition? People might not come people might not think its pretty but those who understand will know today was a very good effort from the lads. We were 2 players down from a very limited squad and really should have won the top of the table team and all that seems to matter is some abject snipe at Pulis....your performance deserves the mark I gave first off. Pulis 8/10
CS cant agree with that at all but each to their own opinion,Fuller is a top class player who at the minute needs a break in front of goal and YET AGAIN was our main danger in front of goal and if anyone was going to come off it was Mama who since his injury has not had imho the best of times.Being pro or anti pulis should not affect how you mark him today we more than matched the top of the league team and anyone who says otherwise has not got a clue about football FACT.

Agree, Fuller is a top class player but sometimes you know it just wont happen on a particuar day. Being pro or anti Pulis has not affected my marking, he needed to change things and then w e would have won.
Like for Like,i.e striker for a striker is not changing the tactics
Its not like he is not getting the chances, he will get a match when the chances he had to day will be tucked away of that I have no doubt. Thought he was triffic today sometimes a greedy git but hey hes a striker.
