Five things we learned from Middlesbrough v Watford
One half of Super Sunday is done and dusted and the term super has to be used in the most loose of terms possible.
The game was Middlesbrough against Watford at the Riverside Stadium and, during the first half particularly, it was a pretty poor ninety-odd minutes to sit through.
The one bit of quality was the goal. Jose Holebas’ left-footed strike from the edge of the box briefly woke us up from our Sunday afternoon slumber but things soon quietened down again as Boro never really looked like threatening, despite being at home, and eventually surrendered to a 1-0 defeat.
The result leaves Aitor Karanka’s men still without a home win this season and facing a relegation dogfight, whilst Walter Mazzarri’s Watford have gone up to ninth in the league with the three points.
