Month: March 1987
100 Greatest Watford wins- No.21: The prologue to the explosive and controversial closing few minutes at Highbury had been written five months earlier. The league game between Arsenal and Watford descended into farce when the referee, Brian Stevens, sent the goalkeeper, Tony Coton off.
Finally another top flight win over the Toffees. We had, of course, beaten Everton 2-0 in our very first game in Division One in August 1982. Since then we’d faced them 9 times losing 8 and drawing once. So this win, in front of the Match Of The Day Live cameras, was particularly satisfying.
