Our Watford end of season ratings

Our matchday player ratings have caused a real stir this season. Even a couple of the players (well, those who turned up) debated them with us on Wednesday night. It showed the game is all about opinions, which is why we all love it.

The official club awards were dished out at Wembley stadium on Wednesday, so we decided to collate our game-by-game ratings to see if they tallied. We’ve also created a couple of other categories that you wouldn’t see Jon Marks and Emma Saunders inviting a player up on the stage to collect.
