    Ride on boy!

  • This guy was a constant threat on the left side of the field up until the time he was substituted for what I hope was a precaution.
    His hunger to score goals and play good football is there for all to see. If not for the selfishness of the Watford captain sissoko who chose to shoot instead of passing the ball to a free dennis, he might have scored 2 GOALS on the day.
    If only he and king can click on the field the way he seems to click with sarr then the ighalo-deeney combination might be reformed as dennis-king.
    Watford look stronger and tighter at the back but they need to be clinical upfront.
    Hope they escape relegation. Dennis needs to keep playing at the top level.

      Well i do not see Dennis going down with Watford.
      Should Watford get relegated Dennis will definitely be on the market for a top premiership side he has done well enough to get a deserving recognition.
