skyTroy Deeney struck late as Watford secured a 1-0 win against Everton in the Premier League at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

BBC SportCaptain Deeney smashed a shot into the roof of the net – his first goal from open play all season – to help the Hornets crawl six points above the bottom three.

guardianBlunt as ever, Troy Deeney described this match as “pretty dire”. That may have been something of an exaggeration but it was not wholly inaccurate – yet ultimately this was an occasion to savour for Watford’s captain.

TelegraphWatford may have got over Marco Silva pretty quickly, but, on this evidence, Everton might still hanker over the manager they had been prepared to pay £10million for.

BHappy imageAny sense of blood and thunder and scores to be settled was short lived. The teams arrived to a particularly densely packed wall of flags in the Rookery and an unexpected cannonfire of yellow and black streamers from the base of the stand. Briefly this had the desired effect as the crowd roared the Hornets on, until it became clear that said streamers had been fired with sufficient welly to reach and entangle themselves into the hooks and anchors in the ceiling of the stand which has never received more attention during a game as the tendrils of streamers blowing in the wind provided an unusual frame to the action, a garish new Instagram filter for the rest of the evening. 

FranIt had been a remarkably dull game with most of the excitement of the first half deriving from having to fight off streamers that had detached themselves from the roof.

The Hornets Nest Absolutely nothing happened in the first half.  Complete naff all.  It was so bad that I felt sorry for the pundits and editors of highlight shows who had to desperately search for something to talk about and show.

24th February 2007- Premier League, Watford 0 Everton 3

Everton romped to victory to keep their push for the Uefa Cup on course and leave Watford in desperate trouble.

Three successive home matches offered Aidy Boothroyd’s side a genuine opportunity to close the gap on the teams immediately above them. But the failure to overcome 10-man Wigan in midweek, followed by this setback, suggests the chance has been lost. Although there is still Charlton to come next Saturday, Watford have that sinking feeling.

Boothroyd must already be examining Plan B – the one to take Watford back up next season. Goals will come easier in the Championship. Some will surely fall to the Hungarian forward Tamas Priskin, the second-half substitute who deserved one for effort alone after a shot and two headers in the space of five minutes.

Your one word match report is: Eurgh.

24th February 2001- New Division One, Watford 2 Stockport County 2

Promotion-chasing Watford suffered a major setback to their hopes against Stockport County at Vicarage Road.

This, my friends, was woeful.

GT is right to question their attitudes, and is realistic about the need for new players. Good. I’m plain insulted by this lot. In the old days, when we were good we were good. And when we were bad we were bad. But now when we could be good, we’re worse, and that’s just too much to bear.
