28th April 2012- Championship, Watford 2 Middlesbrough 1

Final programme notes from Sean Dyche and Laurence Bassini

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.

4th February 2012- Championship, Watford 2 Barnsley 1

BBC SportA brace from captain John Eustace secured Watford three points against Barnsley at Vicarage Road.

skyThe home side looked bright from the start and took the lead just after the half-hour mark when a free-kick deflected to Eustace on the edge of the box and he fired a fine effort in off the left-hand post.

BHappy imageStar of the half-time role-call one Ray Lewington on his first visit back to the Vic since his unseemly departure almost seven (count them) years ago.  Entirely appropriate that he received a warm welcome, and even a chant from those shivering in the Rookery who weren’t incapable of going a couple of hours without an alcohol break.
