Month: December 2006

23rd December 2006- Premier League, Liverpool 2 Watford 0

Ben Foster made a series of saves to deny Liverpool in the first-half, though Watford had the best chance when Al Bangura volleyed over the bar.

Young opened the second half with an early shot that presented Reina with no problems but, within minutes, Liverpool had the goal they had so desperately sought and which their first-half possession suggested would be along sooner rather than later.

Unless Matt had something better in mind, the one word match report is: Unrepeatable.

9th December 2006- Premier League, Watford 0 Reading 0

Watford squandered the chance to move off the foot of the Premiership and above Charlton, who were thrashed by Spurs, as they were held by Reading.

Boothroyd has been encouraged to hear that Ashley Young has no intention of leaving Watford next month, despite the interest being shown in the 21-year-old midfielder by Arsenal and Aston Villa. On Saturday the makeshift striker struggled to make any impact against the resolute Ibrahima Sonko and Ivar Ingimarsson, and even his fierce 25-yard shot, Watford’s first moment of menace, was saved confidently by Marcus Hahnemann.

Today’s one-word match report is: futile.
