BBC SportWatford moved up to second in the Championship as striker Matej Vydra scored his 20th goal of the season.

BHappy imageLloyd Doyley was simply born to play in that role on the right of a three, Nyron Nosworthy retains the happy habit of belting the ball into outer space when the need arises, Joel Ekstrand has evidently decided that he wants to be like them more than he wants to be like Neuton, which is the right choice.

sky A superb strike from Steve Davies early in the second half was enough to give Derby a 1-0 win at Watford in the Championship on Saturday.

BHappy imageBHappy Report: For all the excitement of the season’s first home game, and with it a bunch of new kids to pick on or befriend, it takes about ten minutes for a certain weary familiarity to set in. Derby hang around the division like one of those odd jobs – the wonky cupboard door in the kitchen, the bit of painting in the spare room, the wisteria in need of a trim – that would only take half an hour but that you never quite get around to sorting out. In the latter case, the wisteria growing up the front of our house has got so carried away by the summer’s heady blend of sunshine and rain that anyone standing on our front steps for longer than a minute or two is liable to become so entwined that they may never escape. And that’s your introductory metaphor.

3rd May 2009- Championship, Watford 3 Derby County 1

Brendan Rodgers last programme notes. This was the game where John Eustace, a Watford player but on loan to Derby, played against us and scored.

Two goals from Grzegorz Rasiak helped Watford to a victory that was not quite as emphatic as the scoreline suggests.

OK, so final day of the season, not much to play for (save finishing above Palace, always nice…).  But given that… what a very fine way to end the campaign.  Nigel Clough’s assertion that the first goal was pivotal was probably fair enough – the game was wide open from the start – but the implication that the Rams were worth something woefully optimistic.

Kevin Lisbie gave Derby the lead against the run of play when he raced onto Adam Bolder’s pass and trickled a low shot into the far corner.

Marlon King fired the Hornets level with a smart finish from 18 yards and later hit the post as the home side poured forward.

But Giles Barnes slid in to put the Rams ahead before Bangura made it 2-2 with a fine shot deep in injury-time.

BSAD imageBSAD report:I don’t know how many words there are in Icelandic for goal, but there must be quite a few for determination.

BSAD imageBSAD report:Unfortunately, my battle to scribble notes in a straight line in the rapidly failing light meant that I was looking down at my pad when Derby scored the equaliser, so I can’t tell you how it happened, except that it was, I think, Ian Taylor, from a rebound.

BSAD imageBSAD report: The second half picked up where the first half finished, with the Hornets in the ascendancy. Devlin might have had a penalty having been brought down by Boertien, but better was to follow on fifty-two minutes. Helguson flicked on a long ball from stand in skipper Neal Ardley, who also defied his critics with a determined display at right back. Gavin Mahon picked up the flick and bulldozed his way into the box, where he applied a neat finish to give the Hornets the lead. Get in there. Yes, Yes and YES!

8th April 2000- Premier League, Watford 0 Derby County 0

BSAD image One league, twenty teams, enough hot air to keep Richard Branson in world record attempts for the rest of his life.

So what have we discovered on our year-long fact-finding mission? What will we tell our Nationwide chums upon our return? That it’s quite impossible for clubs of our size to survive in the top flight? That there’s a gap so great that it can never be bridged without the help of either massive resources or Kevin Phillips? That there’s no point in even trying?

Not really. As long as the Premiership remains at its current size, it will contain enough guff ‘n’ nonsense for a club of our stature – and, more importantly, our strength – to scrap towards the forty point mark.
