Goal 1


BBC Sport Nathan Redmond scored on his first Premier League appearance for Southampton to rescue a point against Watford at St Mary’s Stadium. Etienne Capoue rifled the Hornets into the lead after a header by Troy Deeney created space for the midfielder.


fran's watford blogAt the final whistle, a number of the Watford players collapsed to the floor and, I must admit, that I wanted to follow suit as I had been exhausted watching that second half from the stands.  The players came over to thank the travelling fans.  They were not joined by Mazzarri, but that is not meant as criticism as he did give the crowd an appreciative wave before disappearing down the tunnel.  He is rather animated in the dugout and could bring us some entertainment on that score this season.

sky A superb strike from Steve Davies early in the second half was enough to give Derby a 1-0 win at Watford in the Championship on Saturday.

Steve Davies grabbed the only goal as Derby recorded their second successive league win at the expense of Watford. Davies scored his second of the season when he received the ball from Lee Croft 20 yards out and fired his effort into the roof of the net.

BHappy imageBHappy Report: For all the excitement of the season’s first home game, and with it a bunch of new kids to pick on or befriend, it takes about ten minutes for a certain weary familiarity to set in. Derby hang around the division like one of those odd jobs – the wonky cupboard door in the kitchen, the bit of painting in the spare room, the wisteria in need of a trim – that would only take half an hour but that you never quite get around to sorting out. In the latter case, the wisteria growing up the front of our house has got so carried away by the summer’s heady blend of sunshine and rain that anyone standing on our front steps for longer than a minute or two is liable to become so entwined that they may never escape. And that’s your introductory metaphor.

Artistic merit, shots, corners, passes, pretty much anything other than goals scored (and yellow cards) and we won this game handsomely.

One programme was issued for the two games we played against Italian opposition. See 8th August 2006- Friendly, Watford 1 Inter Milan 1

Watford ObserverTHE name may not be as famous as Inter Milan but Watford completed the second part of their Italian double-header by deservedly beating Serie A outfit Chievo 2-1 on Sunday, August 13 to complete an undefeated pre-season and put themselves in good shape for next week’s Premiership opener at Everton.

Ray Lewington’s first programme notes.


Personally, I feel involved again. Apart from anything else, we worked really, really hard last night, and it was nigh on impossible to feel detached when faced with the possibility that all that effort might not be rewarded in some small way. An imperfect performance, perhaps. An almost embarrassingly honest and willing one too, however, and you felt that a Millwall winner and consequent fury from the stands might be too much for a open, slightly vulnerable, increasingly hearts-on-sleeves team to cope with. In short, it mattered quite a lot, more than it has for a while.
