Richarlison | “I'm Adapting Very Well To The League”

Watford head into tomorrow’s clash with Southampton at Vicarage Road looking for a much needed new year pick-me-up in the Premier League. 

It was not a very merry Christmas for the Golden Boys as they suffered home defeats to Huddersfield and Swansea and came away with nothing on trips to Burnley, Crystal Palace and Brighton. A morale boosting win over Leicester City showed the side's truest shade. 

Making Vicarage Road a fortress in the second half of the season is something Richarlison feels will make a huge difference to the Hornets' campaign, starting against the Saints .

“It’s a negative moment right now,” Richarlison admitted.

“We need to always look for that victory, starting from Saturday.

“We just have to keep improving and concentrating, especially in the final moments of matches and starting on Saturday we need to move back [up the table].”

Despite the recent dip in form it has been a fantastic start to life in England for the 20-year-old Brazilian. He has had a hand in many of Watford’s goals this season with an impressive five goals and eight assists overall in the league so far.

It’s safe to say the forward has certainly been a stand-out player for the Golden Boys so far and when questioned on his start to life at Vicarage Road, he was quick to thank those around him for his success.

“It’s going fantastically, it’s incredible. All my teammates are very helpful, I have a lot of great friends here.

“Overall it’s going absolutely great, I’m adapting well to the league and I have to thank God as well for the opportunity."


News | Fans' Tribute Planned For GT

The 1881 movement have been responsible for some remarkable, memorable foil and flag displays since their inception during the 2013/14 season.

Now the group is planning to turn Vicarage Road into a sea of Watford scarves before tomorrow’s match against Southampton, to mark the first anniversary of Graham Taylor’s passing.

The group are calling on Watford supporters in all stands to bring a scarf to the game. When the familiar opening bars of Z Cars play, supporters are asked to hold their scarves aloft and keep them displayed while the players walk out onto the Vicarage Road turf. 

Roy Moore, the group’s founder, is hoping that the display will prove as memorable as the poppy foil display created during their first season, and the giant flag that covered the whole Rookery stand before this season’s win against Arsenal.

“Our goal has always been about improving the atmosphere at the Vic and we’re hoping that the chance to pay tribute to our greatest ever manager will bring supporters in all four stands together and create something really special,” said Roy. 

“Most supporters have a scarf or two lying about at home, this is the time to dig them out and proudly hold them aloft to pay tribute to GT and show your support for the team”
