A few theories that were disproved by tonight’s beating by Burnley:
1) Under Aidy, Watford always bounce back after a defeat
2) Our poor defensive showings in the last three games have been purely down to Jay Demerit’s absence
3) We always play with extra verve in a midweek home game under floodlights
4) Steve Kabba is a winger
Actually, only Aidy ever seemed to believe that last one - Steve himself certainly didn’t seem convinced.

Before I forget, another candidate for those alternative end-of-season awards. In the ‘Best Strop’ category, Marlon gets a nomination for his reaction to West Brom’s third goal. After everyone had stood stock still for a good 10 seconds, looking at each other, Marlon started jumping angrily up and down on the spot in the manner of a three-year-old who’s just been told he can’t have an ice-cream. And to be honest, you can’t really blame him
