Post Match

It wasn’t a classic and the fans were certainly not missing much by being absent from this one, but the Hornets kept the points tally ticking along this evening to ensure they are still bang in the mix for when, fingers crossed, they can return in some shape of form next month.

City goalkeeper Dan Bentley made the save of the match in the 74th minute, showing great reactions to tip over a shot from Domingos Quina.

Vladimir Ivic’s visitors, who were without three unnamed players who have tested positive for coronavirus, tailed off in the second half as City forward Antoine Semenyo looked the most likely to make something happen.

This was football which deserved to be played behind closed doors. That old Shankly quip about closing the curtains if Everton were playing down the bottom of the garden. But there’s something lurking underneath that too, a sense of how football re-shapes itself when it isn’t so conscious of the public gaze. It’s hard to believe that Bristol City could be quite this cautious in front of a stadium full of their own supporters; unless the opposition is particularly illustrious, and sometimes even then, home fans tend to want to see their team do more than line up in defensive banks. They don’t touch the ball for the first two minutes, content to get their shape and sit tight. In real life, you just can’t do that without a rising restlessness in the stands.

It ended honours even at Bristol City, and while it was level pegging at Ashton Gate, there was a difference of opinion when it came to discussing the performance for the podcast…

BBC SportWatford comfortably beat a much-changed Bristol City in the FA Cup third round as striker Troy Deeney returned with a goal after a four-match suspension.

skyTroy Deeney’s diving header snuffed out any threat of an upset as Watford eased past Bristol City 3-0 and into the FA Cup fourth round.

TelegraphBristol City’s giant-killing exploits came to a shuddering halt at Watford where goals from Andre Carillo, Troy Deeney and Etienne Capoue gave the home side victory and avenged their 3-2 defeat by Lee Johnson’s men in the Carabao Cup in August. 

BHappy imageIt comes to something when it’s the Premier League club that fields a virtually full-strength side – or as close to full strength as injuries permit, Richarlíson’s overdue rest aside – and the Championship upstart that makes seven changes in gives debuts to a couple of kids.

FranThe Hornets had been in control for the whole game, but the most pleasing thing was that they had bucked the recent trend by scoring the goals that were needed to finish the game off. 

The Hornets NestA win! Another win!

BBC SportChampionship side Bristol City came from behind to beat Premier League Watford in the EFL Cup second round.

skyBristol City secured a memorable 3-2 victory as Marco Silva’s promising start to life at Watford came to a shuddering halt in the Carabao Cup.

BHappy imageYou have to ask yourself, at what point does an odd pattern stop being an odd pattern and start becoming accepted as “the new normal”, to adopt a horrible phrase.  When does it stop being surprising?  I suppose it depends on the circumstances…  Britain’s naval supremacy was unchallenged until the advent of the submarine, which changed the game entirely but at least there was an event.  Something to point at and say “this has changed because of that”.  Difficult to accept, difficult to reconcile to, but nonetheless cause and effect.  Easy to understand.

FranAfter the cracking performances in the first two games of the season, it was a happy band who met at the West Herts prior to this match.  Those who had been at Bournemouth were assuring those who hadn’t that the game had been as much fun as it sounded on the radio and in reports.  We also took time to teach them the new chant for Doucouré.

The Hornets NestWe’re all disappointed, frustrated, maybe a little pissed off, but deep (deep) down, are you really surprised?  I could literally go back to my report on the Gillingham game last season, copy and paste it in here, alter the score and the team and you would be none the wiser.  Or maybe go back to Preston from two seasons ago? Even better because we had a man sent off. Perhaps I could combine the two?

Hornet effectThe Hornets’ poor league cup record continued after Bristol City came from behind to book their place in the third round with a 3-2 victory at Vicarage Road. The big question going into the tie was how strong a starting eleven Silva would field and the answer was comprehensive, he would be taking the competition seriously.

Jon, Mike and Jason are joined by Olly and DCW to talk about the players who were given a chance to shine and if we are just taking this whole competition too seriously.
