LIVE – Watford v Real Sociedad: Hughes and Capoue on the bench for Watford’s last pre-season game in memory of Graham Taylor

Touching tributes paid to Graham Taylor as Watford are held to goalless draw by Real Sociedad

Player ratings: How did Watford’s players get on in their goalless draw against Real Sociedad?

BHappy image First and foremost, we’re here for GT. There’s yellow everywhere, including in the Rookery where, if the donated tributes get a bit lost the sentiment is evident and a mighty GT banner dominates. And that’s the theme really… what’s important is not the substance, not the what, but the motivation behind it.  Everyone… club, supporters, guests… want to do this justice.  So there’s all sorts of entertainment going on behind the Rookery by all accounts – and whilst I grouchily resent not being allowed to sit in my seat, let alone my stand for any fixture on this occasion allowances must be made.

 

5th August 2012- Lloyd Doyley’s Testimonial, Watford 0 Tottenham Hotspur 1

Watford Observer Live coverage of Lloyd Doyley’s testimonial between Watford and Tottenham Hotspur.

BHappy image A decent turnout for a pre-season game, it’s reasonable to suppose that few were left on the edge of their seats by the spectacle. That’s what pre-season games are like of course, the pace tends to be rather lacking irrespective of the score or the standard… but limited as the excitement was, we acquitted ourselves reasonably well in the first half.
