Gianfranco Zola: Felt everything 'went perfect' for Watford

Relegation-threatened Rovers had no answer to second-half strikes from Troy Deeney (2), Almen Abdi and Matthew Briggs.

The result confirmed a play-off place for the home side, and Zola said: "I was expecting something like this and delighted that it came today at the right manner and in the right way.

"What can I say, everything went perfect - a lot of goals, good performance, a good quality of football and a big crowd and a Sardinian day out there. It's been an ideal Saturday afternoon."

Zola was keen to single out Fernando Forestieri, who provided three assists, adding: "He didn't score but it doesn't matter. But I know Fernando. Fernando can give a big contribution to his team and today he was superb.

"But there were a few others who were superb today. Troy (Deeney) was fantastic with his finishing and also some performances at the back.

"Cassetti was outstanding, really outstanding and the two wide players, Ikechi (Anya) and Daniel Pudil played well and also (Nathaniel) Chalobah was back to his best.

"So when you have all these performances on the pitch then of course the result is more likely to be on your side.

"It is a crazy Championship, it is unbelievable at the top and at the bottom and I think it is going to be like this until the end. I'm expecting changes in the situation until the end."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
