5th April 2014- Championship, Watford 1 Burnley 1

http://watford.fcdb.info?id=5112

Burnley scored a late equaliser to draw at Watford and move a point closer to promotion to the Premier League. Troy Deeney had given the hosts an early lead with a superb strike from 25 yards but the Hornets were made to rue their failure to get a second goal.

Burnley’s disallowed goal was greeted with a rousing rendition of “One Stuart Attwell” from the Rookery.  Coming hot on the heels of the inevitable mock-celebration in response to the first shot drifting wide of the Clarets’ goal this briefly suggested that the much-discussed first return of Attwell since the ghost goal of 2008 would be commemorated with sarcasm and wit rather than ire and red-faced barracking.  That it didn’t prove that way was in no small part down to an erratic display from the official, albeit that the only decision that had the potential to directly impact the outcome was, if failure it was, down to Attwell’s assistant.  Which sounds familiar.

29th March 2013- Championship, Watford 3 Burnley 3

Sam Vokes rescued a point for Burnley in injury-time as Watford missed the opportunity to move into the top two.

A mistake by 22-year-old Matthew Briggs allowed Sam Vokes to make it 3-3 as Burnley manager Sean Dyche’s first return to Watford since being controversially sacked by them ended happily for him.

And so we welcomed Sean Dyche back to a very different club. We applauded him warmly, and quite rightly; he applauded us, which was typically decent of him. And he stood on the touchline with Ian Woan, pointing and shouting and looking as if he’d never left. And then we went our separate ways again. And now we’re here, you wouldn’t change it, would you?

28th April 2012- Championship, Watford 2 Middlesbrough 1

Final programme notes from Sean Dyche and Laurence Bassini

http://watford.fcdb.info?id=5015

Middlesbrough missed out on the play-offs with a defeat at Watford. The visitors needed a win and Cardiff, to lose in order to sneak into the top six.

 As you always do on the final day, you look around the pitch for signs of what next season might bring, for the points that need addressing, for the players who need tying down lest they fly away. One last look before a summer of idle discussion and speculation…and we’ll mostly leave all of that for the footie-less weeks.

14th April 2012- Championship, Watford 1 Hull City 1

Troy Deeney’s ninth of the season earned Watford a 1-1 draw against Hull to cancel out James Chester’s opener at Vicarage Road.

Having played 4-5-1 at Cardiff, Sean Dyche had explained his aspiration to a tactical flexibility that would leave us comfortable switching between a number of formations.  Now is undoubtedly the time to try new things of course, but despite that it it has now seen us take points from consecutive games against teams above us in the table there was little sign of 4-5-1 proving terribly effective.

9th April 2012- Championship, Cardiff City 1 Watford 1

Nyron Nosworthy’s late leveller dealt a blow to Cardiff City’s stuttering play-off charge as the defender rescued mid-table Watford a Championship point.

Nosworthy’s conversion of Sean Murray’s free-kick with eight minutes left earned a deserved point for the visitors, who have now lost only once in nine league games.
