Wanderers make the trip to Vicarage Lane this weekend in good form and confident that we can come away with at least a point.

Ahead of this, I spoke with Miles Jacobsen, studio director of Sports Interactive, the team behind the Football Manager series of video games, and creators of the original Championship Manager. You may or may not know that I am the Bolton Wanderers researcher for the FM game series and so therefore if you can't get the boys to the top level then chances are it's my fault.

Miles is Watford born and bred (at least according to Wikipedia) - a connection made real in 2012 when Sports Interactive became principal club sponsors of Watford, with the ‘Football Manager' and ‘Football Manager Handheld' trademarks emblazoned across the club's home and away shirts.

Miles had the following to say:

1) How do you think Watford have done this season compared to last?

At this point last season we had a team just starting to gel that had loads of new faces in it. This season has been one of unpredictability, giving away a few silly goals late on, and not holding on for the 3 points.

We should be doing better.

2) Who should Bolton fans look out for in the Watford side?

There is lots of talent in the Watford squad so it's difficult to pick out only one player.

What's lacking is that individual talent hasn't become a team performance as yet.

3) Can you give us a score prediction?

Predictions are impossible with the Watford team this season so I reckon one of the two teams will definitely get at least 1 point :)

We at LOV would like to thank Miles for his time, and wish Watford all the best for this season - except for when they came up against Bolton Wanderers of course.
