Odd if the plan was for Watson was to play 30 mins and McIntyre 60 mins they didn't switch them round with Watson coming off the bench instead.

Watson only playing half an hour does suggest even more that he's come back slightly ahead of schedule.

Could easily be the intention to give them a half each, but Watson wasn't feeling fit enough so came off early. Doesn't have to be a recurrence, just not quite as ready as planned perhaps, or caution.

Not necessarily that odd - better to start someone who you know can't last and take them off earlier than to bring them on at halftime say and them have to go off again with 15 mins left.

Depends where they both were in their respective recoveries.

Seems like a Watson is a couple of weeks away from being fit, do wonder how he fits Stam’s plans consider he’s been out for so long

Hopefully he or Richards will be eased in, with the other providing cover, to pair with Gunter, allowing us to get Bacuna back into midfield where he can drive us forward.

And hopefully, by the start of next season he'll be first choice R(W)B, with Obita recovered and taking L(W)B.

I don’t see either of them getting into the first team the way things are going, Stam seems to have found his best 11

Watson has been out for a year - can’t see him getting near the first team for league games for a long while yet

Maybe a chance in the FA Cup but don’t know how Stam will play those games

According to Andries Ulderink, Garath McCleary is almost ready to get back to full training and George Evans is now down to weeks instead of months.

Don’t think any player who has been put for a year can be in anyone’s plans.
Will need to get back into training and play 6 or 7 u23 games before he’ll be on the radar properly.
His aim will be to be part of the squad for preseason. If we don’t go up Gunter may be tempted to grab a chance in the lower end of the Prem....

He has 7 months left on his contract, can’t help but think Stam will have to give him the chance to prove himself.

We’ve often given a player an extra 12 months contract if they have had a bad injury, would be disappointed if we don’t offer him this. He can then try and force his way into Jaap’s plans.

You'd imagine, if there's no chance of going up, once we're safely clear of relegation, he'd get that chance in league games? Assuming he's done fine in U23 games up to that point.

Well we are pretty safe from relegation now, and I can see us being there or thereabouts in the playoff race until very near the end of the season.
I can’t see Gunter being over happy to step down and let a youngster audition for his place though and would hope Gunter at left back isn’t a long term thing although Gunter at LB, a fit Watson at RB and Bacuna in midfield is not an unacceptable permutation. Not sure who would drop out to let Bacuna play in the middle though !
In terms of a new contract Watson first of all needs to demonstrate he is fully fit, and he can do that without being given first team starts.

That’s something for Stam to think about how he fits, Bacuna is obviously not going to be able to play every game so I would like to think Stam is looking for a long term option, young players are usually never the same after a serious injury and in my opinion the only way to find out if one is truly good enough is by playing them. I do not see Stam bringing in a new fullback anytime soon and why should he? Don’t fix what isn’t broke, but I do see a point where Watson has to play

I'd take Bacuna in midfield over any of the three there currently, and I like all of them.

I'd also be amazed if Gunter ends up in the PL with anyone other than us next season. And we're unlikely to go up.

Get Reading reporting that Harriett is out for a few months. Another relapse or poor reporting?
