    WILL HUGHES (Watford)
    “Will Hughes looked a decent player and he was doing well in the Championship but it is a different challenge entirely stepping up to the Premier League,” continued Paul Merson in that damning preview, and boss Marco Silva has been slow to integrate his £8m man Hughes, giving him no more than a place on the bench in their opening two games. So he started against Bristol City, Watford lost 3-2 and the Hertfordshire Mercury described his performance thus: ‘Would have been desperate to impress on his debut. Endured a frustrating time of it on the whole, apart from a smart assist for the first goal. Was slightly slow on the ball all night though and his little flicks and passes rarely came off.’ The boss admitted: “He needs to adapt. Now’s the moment to give more time to him and when we need him, he’ll be ready.”

    John Brayford?

    In contrast, Ince seems to be settling in perfectly. I guess he's had a bite at the apple before though.

    Not seen the Watford XI that started against Brizzle. Was it just a couple of changes or was it wholesale changes like us at Grimsby?

    Unfair to pass verdict on Will until he has had a few games in their first XI proper.

    Perfectly understand Merson and the press though. They have column inches and broadcast minutes to fill. The full story has no place there.

    I really hope that he can get a run in the side and show what he can do. I wish him nothing but the best.
