report: I resent the loss of midweek games, the loss of that looking forward to a week of work being interrupted by this nugget of excitement (or Rotherham at home, whatever) simply to accommodate Manchester United (for example) losing to some Danish team in a bloated competition that will give them plenty of second chances anyway.

 A very poor Hull City visited Vicarage Road and gave Jon, Jason and Mike plenty to talk about. That and a certain forged letter make it another one of those fun weeks to be a Watford fan. COME ON YOU ORNS!

report:There is always something special about the sense of anticipation in a pre-match crowd.  Also, as it was Watford playing Hull, there was neither a ticket tout nor a half-and-half scarf anywhere to be seen.

 report:During half time Harry the Hornet was awarded the ‘Unsung Hero 2015/16’ award. It’s about time he was acknowledged for his efforts on a match day. With stunts ranging from celebrating with the players, to throwing away fan inflatables into the off-limits building site when the Sir Elton John stand was being built. Harry is real entertainment.

Manchester United suffered their third defeat in a week as late goals from Juan Zuniga and Troy Deeney gave Watford a deserved Premier League win.

SKY image

An inspired change by Walter Mazzarri saw substitute Juan Camilo Zuniga sweep Watford back ahead with his first touch seven minutes from time, and Troy Deeney added a late penalty after Zuniga was fouled by Marouane Fellaini.

Watford caught them cold and started superbly.

 I should perhaps preface this piece with a warning; specifically, surprisingly and somewhat contrary to the popular line I’m not going to concentrate on the visitors.

Fran’s report: It feels like the 80s all over again and I never thought I would be able to say that.

Watford fans could have been forgiven for thinking things couldn’t get much better after last week’s extraordinary comeback at West Ham. Well, they just did.

fran's watford blogAs we waited for kick-off, a lot of balls were flying in to the Rookery, one of which hit a little lad a couple of rows behind me.  I heard applause and then saw Guedioura running up the aisle past us to make sure that the child was OK and give him a ball to take home.  That may well have been the highlight of the evening.

6th August 2016- Friendly, Watford 2 Lorient 2

Watford Observer Follow the action from Watford’s final pre-season friendly

Troy Deeney celebrated the sixth anniversary of his Hornets debut by crashing home a penalty in first-half injury time before a delightful chip from Odion Ighalo rounded off a good breakaway move just short of the hour put the hosts in command. But the two-goal advantage was to be shortlived – Zargo Toure netting a superb free-kick from 25 yards – before the Hornets rearguard was unpicked by a fine move started and finished Romain Philippoteaux.

It had been an enjoyable game, without setting the World alight.  Success had the best game that I had seen from him, probably due to the fact that he was playing upfront rather than in the midfield.  The guys sitting next to me were impressed and commented that he should start, but they were shouted down by a youngster in front who angrily told them that Success should be brought on to change the game.  An interesting perspective, but I agree with the first opinion.  It was also good to see Ighalo score.  He is a player that feeds off confidence, so that lovely goal can’t have done him any harm.  Special mention must also go to Emma Saunders who did a tremendous job with names of the Lorient team and substitutes.
