So, poor GianFredo is perplexed again after Watford folded to yet another defeat. According to the adorable Italian, there seemed no way that Blackburn would score as the game ticked into the 90th minute. The former West Ham manager complained:
"I honestly couldn't see them scoring because they were not causing any particular problems to our defence so I thought the game was gone.
But you have teams that never give up until the end so you can't say the game is gone."
He added: "I can't classify it as a fortunate goal. With no disrespect towards Rhodes who scored a good goal, but probably towards the end we started to defend too deep and when you do that, you know it's always a risk."
Bloody hell, after all these years in the game you would have thought that Zola would have realised that it is a 90 minute (plus injury time) game and that it only takes a second to score a goal.
If Watford were defending too deep, why the fcuk didn't he do something about it?
And as for "teams that never give up until the end", might I suggest that he coaches his team to last out a game? To lose one game in the 90th minute may be bad luck, to lose two in succession screams incompetence and, as we always thought at West Ham, poor physical conditioning.
