Nicholas’s comments are damning about Newcastle, and those who watched the match will agree with him.

Benitez’s side were desperately poor against Watford, and it is important that they bounce back and pick up maximum points in their next game, which is against West Bromwich Albion away from home at The Hawthorns in the Premier League this evening.
