Gotta agree. I've just added the fixtures for next week to Pickem and Brighton v West Ham and Everton v Watford are already looking like massive fixtures for both Pellegrini and Gracia. Pellegrini won't want a start like last year when West Ham lost their first 4 games. And Gracia and Watford need to show something against Everton after the drubbing in the Cup Final and a 3-0 thumping at home to Brighton.Javi Gracia will struggle to keep his job at Watford this year given what has gone on before with them and managers.
Bit harsh, they hit the woodwork twice and De Gea had a few crucial saves. Yes, the scoreline was 4-0 but it could all have been so much different in the first half. I do think Lampard and Chelsea but he shouldn't be on this performance or result.I think you can add Lampard to the list of managers that need a big performance from their teams. I know it seems absurd after only one game but a result like that puts a manager under pressure regardless of when in the season it happens.
