It feels like it has been months since the last Tottenham Hotspur match, which unfortunately has been sort of a relief. In a season that seems like everything has gone wrong, Spurs still have 30 matches left to play in the league and all of their dreams still ahead of them in the Champions League.
A match against last place Watford might seem like the perfect remedy, but Tottenham supporters have seen other underdogs take points away from their side already. There is no clear solution and plenty of problems, and unfortunately one international break is not enough to completely right the ship.
The scoreline is obviously important on Saturday, but the play on the pitch will be heavily watched as well. Anything other than a convincing win over a side that has just three draws on the season is unacceptable. How the players rally around (or do not show up for) Mauricio Pochettino will be extremely telling.
What little hope remains will be put on the line yet again. A solid victory while looking like the Tottenham of old is certainly not out of the question and would be a much needed step in the right direction. This match is being offered on a silver platter; time to come take it.

- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is also not allowed. It’s fine to say “wow, that was a really bad call,” but it’s NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. Observe Wheaton’s Law. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
