26th January 2008- FA Cup Fourth Round, Watford 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 4

After O’Toole’s goal, Jobi McAnuff had a great chance to set up a tense finish as he got on the end of a cross from Watford substitute Tommy Smith, but he put his shot wide.

Another kick up the backside, Aidy?  If our arses are that sore no wonder we’re struggling so badly.

19th January 2008- Championship, Watford 1 Charlton Athletic 1

The first game since Al Bangura won his appeal to be allowed to remain in the UK.

After 19 games record signing Nathan Ellington finally scored his first goal for the Hornets.

BBC SportNathan Ellington scored his first goal for the club since his summer move when he coolly steered home from 12 yards.

guardianAt the end of a busy week Aidy Boothroyd could reflect that more by luck than design his team had squeezed back into the automatic promotion places on goal difference but the Watford manager cannot wait for the month to end so he can get back to the business of priming his squad for the run-in.

BHappy imageWell that was quite good fun really.  Wouldn’t have been fun in the Premiership… we’d have been two down and game over at half time.

FTRE imageI don’t know if it is football in general – the continuing failure of the National team, the increasingly hard to stomach Sky TV hype and equally nauseating commentary, Andy Gray (both of them), the wonky kick off times etc. – but (whisper it) I think I am losing interest a bit.

5th January 2008- FA Cup Third Round, Watford 2 Crystal Palace 0

Dan Shittu scored two virtually identical goals as Watford ended Crystal Palace’s 13-game unbeaten run to reach the FA Cup fourth round.

Well that was much better. It’s been a while since we’ve dominated a side at home as we did in the second half.
