19th January 2021- Championship, Watford 1 Barnsley 0

BBC Sport: Troy Deeney’s first-half penalty was enough for Watford to beat Barnsley and move up to third in the Championship.

Sky Sports: Callum Brittain’s bizarre decision to stick out an arm when Deeney crossed in the 26th minute ended up costing Barnsley. The ball reared up off his leg but Brittain’s right arm was in such an un-natural position that referee Tim Robinson had no hesitation in pointing to the spot.

BHappy: We were fifth before today’s game, third afterwards.  Tiny violins and so forth.  But it’s been so long since we attacked with any verve that even this halfway house, this decent stab at it was a whole lot of fun.  We might have scored more goals at home than anyone else (and fewer away than anyone else, which is a ridiculous pair of statistics) but it hasn’t felt like it.  This was….   “yeeeeah, I remember this!  This used to be fun, right?”.

Post Match

The Hornets’ black third kit is, as Ben Foster would say, “a thing of beauty”, but it’s not a particularly lucky strip right now. It’s now played two, lost two and no goals scored after the team followed up the 1-0 defeat at Reading with a repeat at Oakwell.

Ben Wilmot takes the blame for Watford defeat at Barnsley

The Tykes took the lead after just six minutes courtesy of a screamer from captain Mowatt, whose effort from outside the box flew in off the inside of the post.

Watford carried a greater threat after the break without seriously discomfiting home keeper Jack Walton, but boss Vladimir lvic chose to keep £18.5m striker Andre Gray on the bench until the 76th minute.

Barnsley opened at a blistering pace.  We’ve seen some aggressive pressing this season but this was something else altogether, rabid and ferocious.  William Troost-Ekong’s third-minute booking was a bit harsh, but it reflected the degree to which we were already rattled.  The home side capitalised… a slack pass from Wilmot didn’t reach Capoue, Alex Mowatt seized it and pinged a tremendous shot into the top corner.  It wasn’t that far away from Ben Foster in truth as his reaction betrayed but it was a hell of a strike.

It was a far from Happy Halloween for the Hornets as Watford capped off a disappointing week with defeat to Barnsley at Oakwell. The podcast team try to work out what went wrong in a game that saw the visitors fail to register a single shot on target.

A Troy Deeney shot gave the visitors the lead before Jason Scotland won possession and fired in to equalise. Davide Faraoni’s volley put Watford back in front before a Fernando Forestieri strike and a long-range Sean Murray extended the Hornets’ advantage.

1st December 2012- Championship, Watford 4 Barnsley 1

Troy Deeney’s brace in his 100th game for Watford helped the Hornets win their fifth Championship game in seven, and leave Barnsley winless in nine.

Deeney headed in after just 10 minutes, and after midfielder Mark Yeates had produced a slide-rule finish from a tight angle just before the hour mark, Deeney struck again seven minutes later to take his season’s goal tally to eight.

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.
