Just seen MOD and it did not seem that bad which maybe indicates what use edited highlights are. A neutral seeing it might say Everton could have won that with hitting the bar twice and other chances.

Four people have been arrested after two men were left needing hospital treatment following a fight near Watford Football Club's stadium.

The men sustained facial cuts and bruises, according to police.

Officers were called to Vicarage Road at about 17:10 GMT following the conclusion of Watford's Premier League match against Everton.

Hertfordshire Constabulary said the injured men had been taken to hospital "for further assessment".

Watford supporter Lewis, 31, who did not want to give his full name, told the Press Association he "heard a lot of shouting" as he left the football ground and "went to take a look".

He said he saw "a Watford fan lying on the floor, apparently unconscious, with blood on his face" and "three Everton fans running from the scene towards the town centre".

He added that people gathered around the injured man "were crying and shouting for people to help and call an ambulance".

A video posted on Twitter shows people gathered around someone lying on the floor while an onlooker calls out "coward".

BBC reporter Rick Kelsey said he saw two Watford fans on the ground, covered in blood.

In January, Everton supporters were involved in a brawl before and after an FA Cup game against Millwall in London ,which the Met Police described as "some of the most shocking football violence seen for some time".

One man was left with a "life-changing" scar when he was slashed across the face.

On Tuesday, a 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent, attempted grievous bodily harm, and violent disorder.

...I really think it’s all about partnerships and players complimenting each other. I understand what you mean, but the problem with Zouma is he’s too busy. He’s having to chase all over the pitch. I think with an outstanding CB and good shape ahead of him, he’d be ideal.
Good point about partnerships throughout the team. I feel the lack of them has been a big problem for a few seasons now. There’s no 2/3 players in the team that you think ‘they have a good understanding or they work well together’ (the pienaar/Baines left hand side for example).

It doesn’t matter whether it’s the Premiership or Under 11s, you need these combinations throughout the side. We just don’t look like a team, more a group of individuals doing their own thing

....absolutely, and it’s something I keep calling for as part of a transfer strategy. The problem with the Walsh era was players being bought in isolation without a thought to a system, blend or complementing team mates.

The ‘85 team is a fine team model to analyse. A back four with 3 amazing athletes, full of pace, power, ability and attitude (Stevens, Ratcliffe and Van Den Hauwe). Two wide midfielders contributing significant goals and assists, two central midfielders who hunted as a partnership. An outstanding target man who acted as a partner to his support striker, contributed goals and an ideal foil for others.

that Lewis has been inciting it all on twitter, not a nice bloke at all. Then moaning that people aren't being more sympathetic when he's been referring to everton fans as bin dippers, sharing it all with that newspaper, saying zouma bit the referee. Just a really vindictive character. Wonder whether some of this stems from watford as a club not having any proper rivals at the moment and rivalries, so they feel the need to manufacture them.

For me another down on how we are performing is that Burnley beat Brighton 3-1 at Brighton, remind me how did we do against Brighton not only that were unlucky not to get the 3 points at Old Trafford.
