Club record signing Ismaila Sarr marked his first Watford start with a goal to help the Premier League’s bottom club overcome League One Coventry in the Carabao Cup second round.

 If there’s something fundamentally wrong at the club then it clearly hasn’t extended to this lot, who made up for a little rawness and rustiness with a performance of refreshing positivity.

Coventry had been given the whole end and their fans had come in droves, which was great to see.

The first win for the Golden Boys this season and oh how good it felt. Jon, Jason and Mike gathered to discuss it, the players who shone, and played for a starting place in the first team, and those who got some minutes under their belts. They also discuss the blame game and who should we point the finger at for the poor start to the season and the poor end to last season as well.

30th July 2014- Watford 0 Coventry City 1 (played at Meadow Park, Boreham Wood FC)

The clip doesn’t include the Coventry goal

Six days after our last visit, we were back at Meadow Park for a game against Coventry. 

Watford suffered their first defeat of pre-season as a disappointing Hornets performance resulted in a 1-0 defeat against Coventry City at Boreham Wood’s Meadow Park stadium.

17th March 2012- Championship, Watford 0 Coventry City 0

Coventry goalkeeper Joe Murphy produced a string of fine saves to help his relegation-threatened side contain in-form Watford.

John Eustace and Troy Deeney had the best of the chances but Murphy stood firm to earn Coventry a vital point.

The fiftieth graduation from our Academy in 12 years is something to be hugely proud of, rightly celebrated over the tannoy.  Assombalonga looked the part, keen, strong, rangy… but also raw, and not helped by the limited service he received from a hurried midfield.

BBC SportCoventry salvaged a point at Watford courtesy of late goals from David Bell and Lukas Jutkiewicz.  Will Buckley headed the Hornets in front and Coventry old boy John Eustace fired in a second after the Sky Blues only partially cleared a corner.

skyCoventry City produced a dramatic comeback at Vicarage Road to snatch a 2-2 draw against Watford.  Malky Mackay’s Watford appeared set to follow up an opening game win over Norwich City with another three points after Will Buckley and John Eustace scored.

BHappy imageBoothroyd. Still can’t bring myself to like him. Didn’t boo him, but…. in accepting, revelling in the reception of the crowd at the end of the game, he should have stopped short of the fist-waving celebration. You were welcomed back Aidy, but we support Watford, not you. We weren’t going to share in your celebration. Perhaps old habits die hard.
