It's a 'kids game '

Watford's starting line-up for saturday's 1-0 win against Barnsley consisted of only one player over 26 and 4 teenagers. 6 of the team had come through the Watford academy. Heartening to see a group very young mainly british players playing at high tempo and enthusiasm for the full 90 minutes. If teams like Watford are to survive this has to be the way forward , plus it bodes well for the future England national squad.
Unfortunately for us 2 of the youngsters are only on loan from the premiership but if it means I am spared last seasons relegation scrap who cares.
