Richarlison nets first Watford goal as Hornets keep Bournemouth winless
Watford followed up their impressive opening-day display against Liverpool with a deserved win at Bournemouth after late goals from Richarlison and Etienne Capoue gave Marco Silva three points that he declared were “really deserved”.
For a few seasons now, the travelling fans at Bournemouth have been uncharacteristically unpleasant and there was an early attempt to enforce that reputation as a bloke along the row from me started screaming at the female lino to get back in the kitchen. She was the other end of the pitch from us so wouldn’t have heard anyway, but it wound me up. I’m afraid that my response to this abuse was neither reasoned nor nuanced, but it was to the point
Football, there’s nothing quite like it really is there? My weeks are always spent waiting and counting down until the next game. When someone asks me for the date of important events or vice versa, I only know when that is in relation to the football fixtures. “When do you go on holiday, mum?” “16th December, Andrew”

How have the Hornets moved on from the home draw to Liverpool and have the new boys started to make an impact on the squad? Oh and yes, you can hear that chant and keep it stuck in your head until Bristol City at home.
