Watford goalkeeper, Ben Foster has come out to say that some of his team-mates have not been prepared to give maximum effort over 90 minutes for the club. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, Watford’s relegation has been down to poor home form and a lack of consistency, and it is solely the fault of players who only put in a shift for 60 minutes and relax for the remaining 30 minutes.
Foster added that the earlier Watford players learn that the minimum at the club is giving it everything you’ve got, the better for everyone.
His words, “You just don’t really know what you’re going to get from us, to be perfectly honest,”
“We’ve got too many players who are happy to put it in for an hour, 70 minutes, but then probably fall off and happily let it go in the last 20 minutes.”
“You can’t have that. When you’re a team like us, the minimum is giving it everything you’ve got. The ability you can forego a little bit and accept that you might not have the quality of some players, but you’ve got to put the effort in.”
On the loss vs Crystal Palace, “You could see the confidence was low, we were really lacking today,”
“Last week’s defeat by Burnley really took it out of us. We knew before the game that it was nigh-on impossible. We wanted to come and compete, and I think we did.”
